Many families use Wingate as a one-night stop before a cruise departure, as Jacksonville is a prime cruise port. The smoke-free hotel is near a major highway and easy to find. More than 80 rooms feature flat-screen televisions, comfortable bedding, free high-speed Internet, modern bathrooms and work desks. The rooms are noticeably clean and the staff is friendly.
At Wingate, guests enjoy complimentary Continental breakfast daily. Though there is no restaurant onsite, many are within nearby. Families can easily find Denny’s, Ruby Tuesday, Longhorn Steak House or Panera Bread. River City Marketplace is also close by, and the beach is a half-hour drive. For kids, the hotel has an indoor/outdoor heated pool and whirlpool spa. A complimentary airport shuttle runs from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day. Jacksonville International Airport is very close to the hotel.

Very disappointed. Older facility that needs updating. 32” tv was smallest I have see I a long time. Room temperature was hard to control. Bathroom fan had no control. Bed was comfortable, but sheets kept coming off. Pillows were hard as a rock. The breakfast was
Ok, but no yogurt and fruit was a banana. For the price they should deliver more.
If you must stay here don’t use booking.com as you will pay $ 10 over going rate.

I have stayed at other HI X locations and found this one to not be as updated or friendly. There was a funky smell which I overlooked since they were in the process of cleaning all the carpets. The interior seemed dated and dark. The parking area was dark and didn't feel safe. But they had a wonderful breakfast and the airport shuttle drivers were very friendly. I was only there for one night, so I didn't have a lot of interaction with the staff.
