Top 9 Extended Stay Hotels in Jacksonville, Florida

Two descriptions are often used when Jacksonville gets mentioned. It’s the largest city by area in the whole of the contiguous United States and Florida’s most populous. There’s a certain underdog status attached to it. Many will simply pass Jacksonville heading to the coastal hits and best-kept secret islands like Amelia Island or continuing their state journey down to Orlando and Miami. But stay longer and you will be rewarded with an exciting, culture-filled city that is on the rise. Choose among these top extended stay hotels in Jacksonville and dive into the authentic Northeast Florida life without spending astronomical sums in the process. There will be lots of museums, galleries, restaurants, cafes, and, of course, beaches. Make the most out of your next First Coast visit.
