A Nice Place to Stay
Keeping in my that UNF is a small part of the thriving city of Jacksonville, there are plenty of hotel options. The airport is within 20 miles of the school as well as the Port of Jacksonville with a lot of hotels close to those areas so the availability of a hotel close to the school will be great.
It is a good idea to stay with one hotel chain allowing you to accumulate points to earn free night stays or other rewards offered by that particular program. The other important point to consider is that there are peak weekends in Jacksonville where it could be difficult to get a room, so I always recommend booking a hotel far enough in advance to get the best rates. Most hotels will honor AAA and other discounts.
