The most comprehensive guide to accomodations around Mayo Clinic Jacksonville can be found here http://www.mayoclinic.org/mcitems/pdfs/becomingpat-jax-accomm-guide-2008.pdf

The closest accomodations for patients in need of immediate access points are the Mayo Clinic Inn (attached and inside hall connected this facility is best for COPD, radiation and chemotherapeutic or surgery outpatients due to proximity) it is operated under a contract by Marriott International, the Courtyard by Marriott is located adjacent to research facilities and outpatient clinics it is on the other side of a major parking lot but still considered “on campus”.

Basically the Mayo Clinic is located on the Southside of Jacksonville in the inter coastal region off of San Pablo Rd. (see map above) In addition to the facilities above- Wingate-Windsor Commons (offering shuttle services), Hampton Inn Marsh Landing Parkway, Hampton Inn (Point Meadows) & Holiday Inn Baymeadows as well as Residence Inn JTB and Sheraton Deerwood Park are all close by. A newer Hampton Inn has opened at Beach Blvd between Hodges Blvd and San Pablo Rd (major roads to the Mayo Clinic facilities), at the beach (if medications and sunlight does not bother patients) a newly renovated Hampton Inn, Courtyard by Marriott and Fairfield Inn Jacksonville Beach and the Hilton Garden Inn at Ponte Vedra and Marriott Sawgrass (pricey). Also two five (cleaner) extended stay hotels are on the Southside of Jacksonville.

A great choice for families with 4 day (mid week visits) is the Homewood Suites by Hilton at St John’s Town Center as it allows access to St Johns Town Center and the restaurants and walkable area if your condition allows.

I also just stayed a week at the LaQuinta on Lenoir. Clean, reasonable and very satisfied. My parents stayed at the Wingate by Wyndham across the circle and were very pleased. about the same rate and their am breakfast was better. However, LaQuinta worked for us as we are smokers.

Our favorite place is Hampton Inn. They have a shuttle to the hospital – just over the bridge. And they are within easy distance of a restaurant and shops. And, they have reasonable prices, a discount for Mayo patients, nice happy hours and very friendly staff. Can't beat this.

@jerrynord My husband is retired Army and we usually stay at one of the campgrounds at Mayport Naval Station in either our rv or in one of their cabins and sometimes stay at a lodge on base (it is like most any hotel). The Pelican Roost Campground is a nice place to watch ships come and go.. and Osprey Cove Campground is nice and shady and it has the cabins. I need to go for endoscopy, but am holding off until things calm more. Hopefully soon.

Right now I would call the Mayo's Concierge Services as Colleen as mentioned and take a look at her other suggestions.. many suggestions here for hotels. Some places may be closed or have restrictions though.

Thankyou. I stayed at Osprey when we had a camper. I am going to call the Mayo number when I receive my whole itinerary.

Jerry,
Hampton at Ponte Vedra is good too with AARP, Mayo, and Military rates, a free shuttle, complimentary breakfast, some evenings beverages and snacks as well as dinner really close to the parking lot and extremely nice staff. We will stay there everytime we stay over night. Bonnie

@jerrynord I pray all goes well. I really like watching the ships. Sometimes I try to track them online. I like watching the people fish too. Otherwise we might try for something closer to the Mayo Clinic. We spent 3 months at Osprey Cove in 2014 and again in 2015. In 2014 we had to spend a couple of days over at Hannah Park. My stay in hospital was much longer than expected.. 3 weeks instead of 4 days. I wasn't allowed to leave the area on doctor's orders. and we had to give up our spot for someone with reservations. I could not help my husband with any of the moves.. but he is good at backing our trailer up. I don't like backing over the curbs at Osprey Cove. The cabins are not bad. I love my recliner in our trailer better. … and I know who slept in the bed.

All really good points. Prayers for you both too!
