Going to Florida in a month or so and wondered if anyone knew of a few good places to stay in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Daytona, or something within an hour of these? I see quite a few hotels on the beach that might be good finds, but also might be rat traps. I do hate to take a chance away from a decent chain and realize you generally get what you pay for. But I have gotten lucky a few times in other areas with decent prices and better than expected amenities. Just thought I would check here to see if anyone has seen or stayed at a small (inexpensive) hotel in this area. Any no-name places anyone could recommend. The only real absolute is I have to have oceanfront with a oceanview from the room and/or balcony. Got any? Thanks!
