Great location, peaceful and quiet.
I’ve now stayed twice at the Magnolia Inn with friends, and both stays were very pleasant. There’s now a brand new owner named Jeff, whom we met this weekend. He’s a very energetic, upbeat, and fun young man with a great personality and is full of ideas for improving and updating the Inn. I can hardly wait to come back and see what he’s done, perhaps next year.
The Magnolia Inn is located about two short blocks from the downtown main street. It is on one of the major roads entering Jacksonville but noise was not an issue. There is parking on the side street. Our room and the kitchen area for breakfast was upstairs. The room itself actually had a bedroom, a sitting room and a bathroom. The sitting room has a single bed in it if you are traveling with a child or third person. The breakfast is a help yourself- they had set-out fruit bowls, coffee was made and cereals/tea are available. Orange juice and cook it yourself frozen waffles. During covid you are directed to seating on an outdoor deck.
Our room, Olivia, was handicap accessible (which we needed) and beautifully appointed - it had plenty of space for a wheelchair, a large walk-in shower, railings all around the bathroom, and surprisingly (I’ve never seen one before), a security viewing door hole at wheelchair level! We had an incredibly lovely visit!
Pros and cons
The pros: very clean, very walkable to shops and restaurants, comfy beds, nice veranda, good parking. Cons: tiny rooms, street noise, "gourmet" breakfast not so "gourmet". We asked for milk with "breakfast" (as they provide instant oatmeal) and were told the health department didn't allow it during Covid. However, we found it curious that the health department would allow them to have loaves of bread that anyone could reach in and grab a slice. Breakfast included bakery pastries, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, juice, coffee. Hosts were civil but not especially personable. Both breakfast and staff quite a contrast to what we experienced in Eugene at Home2 suites. We'd stay elsewhere next time.
Family hotel--only 9 rooms--fully boutique. Robert and Susan Roos are wonderful hosts. Softest towels and linens I've every had. First rate service. Outstanding place and most importantly, very very clean. I looked. I could not find dirt or dust anywhere.
