My wife and I stayed at the Third and Main Apartments for two months while I was being treated for prostate cancer at the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute (UF PTI) that is located about one mile away. Our apartment had one bedroom and a den. One and two bedroom apartments are available. Many of their apartments are occupied by UF PTI patients and the staff provide a variety of special services such as weekly social gatherings and visits to nearby restaurants. A very nice restaurant is located on the property and it is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The apartments are about ten years old and are in excellent condition. The staff coordinate their activities with the UF PTI and were very attentive to our needs. They help create a sense of family among the residents. The price of the apartments is reasonable. We recommend Third and Main Apartments highly especially for extended stays of a month or two.
We are a local short-term housing apartment community. All of our suites are fully furnished with flat screen TV’s, cable, WIFI and Ethernet access. All utilities are included, water, electric, garbage and sewage. We have fully furnished one and two bedroom apartments. All of the apartments have queen sized beds in the bedroom and sleeper sofas in the living room. The units with the den also offer a day bed (twin sized) in the den. Full-sized appliances and a fully stocked kitchen with cookware and dishes. There are also washers and dryers in each unit. We have a Gym and a Meeting Center on property as well an on-site restaurant. The complex is fully gated including parking, picnic and grilling area as well as dog walk. Just minutes from downtown our convenient location is perfect for someone on the go.
The Gator lodge has definitely upgraded. Their rooms have been renovated. I've been here for 3 weeks and see not one bug. It's quiet and I felt very safe here with my 7 year old child. There are security cameras all over. The staff is polite and very accommodating. I would recommend this place to my family and friends. And I will definitely visit again. It's conveniently located right across the street from Walmart. And many places within walking distance. I was very impressed with the place.
Came here for the Georgia Florida game. Yes the rooms could use some renovations but what is important for me is that the room was clean. The sheets were bright white and smelled clean. The towels looked new. We had one problem with the smoke detector, and it was taken care of quickly. Yes one of the drawers was missing a handle and there was wall patches in the bathroom, but it was clean. Overall we were happy with what got and the price.
Stayed here for several days while in the area for business. Room was nice (good to have micro/fridge), and wireless Internet worked great. Breakfast was the usual continental fare, but was nicely presented and adequate. Covenient access to I-10 and I-295, as well as local restuarants and stores. I would agree with some of the other posters that the area is a little sketchy, but I had no problems and was satisified with my stay.
We went to Jacksonville for a Bowl game and decided on this one for the location and the price. It was right off the highway, very easy access-great place for someone who has never been to Jacksonville. The rooms were clean and we felt safe to stay there. Now it's not a Hilton or anything but it is a good place to sleep especially for the price. Great place for anyone on a budget-clean rooms, nice staff etc...
When I drove up everyone was standing outside smoking. I got out the car and realized that I had to go to the window (instead of them telling me they walked inside and I read the note on the door). Once I started talking to then everything ran smoothly. The room was very clean, although the neighborhood wasn't so good it was really quiet. They had new sheets and carpet. Overall my stay was good.
I stayed in this hotel while in Jacksonville for a test. I am a young girl and was traveling alone. I felt VERY safe at this hotel. The staff was wonderful and the room was very clean. Of course, this is an inexpensive hotel, so we're not talking about the Hilton here. But, for the money, the location and condition was great!!! I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.
The lady in the front desk that works in the morning really nice and friendly, but the one that works in the afternoon is rude and grouchy. The housekeeping really nice they even cleaned the tub with clorox, she did an awesome job cleaning. Overall it was good will stay there again if i ever go back to Jacksonville.
Clean rooms with nice beds, friendly staff and reasonable rates.... Glazed donuts at breakfast were good. We stayed for a few days and it was worth the price, hotel wasn't far from downtown and the lady at the front desk was very helpful when it came to helping us find things to do while we were in town !
