This was our first stay at Club Continental, but it certainly won't be our last. The staff treated us like family, our room was lovely and very clean. We slept like babies, and breakfast was a joy. We would not hesitate to recommend Club Continental to any of our friends.

We decided to stay at Club Continental during the transition of our move. The grounds and view were beautiful, the room was comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. We willl definitely treat ourselves to another stay soon.

Was pleasantly surprised to find a secluded hide-a-way just a couple of blocks off busy US Highway 17. The rooms in the River Suites building have private balconies that are only a few feet from the St. Johns river--beautiful tranquill views. We had a two-room suite with a small kitchen and all the comforts of home. The included hot breakfast was served in the dining room each morning. Can't wait for a return visit!

Our stay (s.) at the Club have always exceeded expectations!! Between the majestic views, amazing accommodations and the welcoming staff, we can hardly choose what makes our stay the best!! We always recommend the Club and Villa suites to our out of town guests! Thank you for keeping southern hospitality alive and well !! I tried to rate all above with all stars, however , browser would not allow!

I have lived in Jacksonville for over 20 years and never went, my husband and I will definitely be back! I was so impressed with Suite 102...River front King right on the water! Woke up to the most beautiful sunset! Great place for a wedding!

Like a scene from an Agatha Christie novel, the Continental transports you to a bygone era. Aged fountains and giant koi greet the entrance, yet do not expect modern conveniences such as a fridge or microwave in your room.
5 on March 15, 2014
Stayed on St. Johns River with a private balcony on the river with a spectacular view. The room was outstanding with a lot of room, a medium sized fridge, microwave and large sitting area. The bed was firm and comfortable, with soft sheets. We only had the complimentary breakfast in the hotel, which was very good. The staff was cordial and accommodating. You get a lot for the price, which was not cheap but very reasonable for what you get, well worthwhile. Highly recommend a stay there and would gladly do it again!
4.4 on March 14, 2014
My husband and I spent a leisurely Saturday afternoon through Sunday at Club Continental. The house and grounds were beautiful well-kept and breakfast featured a tasty breakfast casserole, fresh fruit, assorted breads for toast, yogurt and cereals as well as juices, teas and coffee with an excellent server. I would recommend asking if there will be a function on premises when you book. There was a wedding that limited our use of much of the grounds and the building and rooms are not soundproof so we were glad when the bridal and from departed and the wedding party finally called it a night.

The accomodations were wonderful! Spacious room, comfortable bed, and fabulous view from the terrace. Wish I would have had more time to enjoy the property. Would like to stay again when I have more time to relax!

For years I've told my lady about CC (I'm very familiar with you.) She would politely nod - 'that's nice.' When she finally saw it, well ....... and, probably took more photos than could ever fit on a screen saver. Thanks! br

This was the second time I've stayed at Club Continental; both times in the river suites. I travel a bit for work, and this hotel is a very nice break from the larger hotel chains. The grounds are very nice to walk around and the sunrise over the river (if you stay in the river suites) is part of what got me to come back a second time. I'd definitely stay here again.
5 on February 26, 2014
Delightful comfortable room overlooking the river. Service was pleasant and the food was delicious. Would definitely return.
4.4 on February 23, 2014
One of my favorite places to stay. The staff are so warm and pleasant and the property is lovely. I love staying in the main mansion, it feels like home. And the breakfasts are delicious! Only one recommendation is that it would be good to have some lighter fare for dinner. As a guest at the hotel, a large salad, soup or lighter fare would be appreciated. Most of the people dining at the restaurant are there for a 4 course meal. Although the food is great, would love some more options.
4.4 on February 20, 2014
Spent one night. Will be sure to stay again when we have some more time. Room was beautiful, fireplace lovely and balcony view was wonderful. Breakfast was very tasty.

The quality of service was impeccable as always. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the secluded location. The grounds are exquisite providing a sense of serene ambiance.
4.8 on February 17, 2014
As soon as we arrived the owners were so friendly and catering. They went so far as to actually walk us around and show us exactly where everything was on the grounds. They even told us about the many things to do in the area. When we got to our room it was amazing! It's not very often that online photos match up, but this place definitely didn't try to fool you, our room wa just what we were expecting and more. The view from the balcony was just outstanding. It was also very clean and tidy! Although we didn't eat there, we were given a tour of the dining area and it was gorgeous. Very spacious and elegant.
4.6 on February 17, 2014
We could tell from the web site we wanted to visit. Such a beautiful property. We were greeted when we arrived and shown our room. When standing on the balcony you are over the St John's River. Enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub, having a kitchen and a wonderful nights sleep on an extremely comfortable bed. Peaceful, quiet and relaxing. We highly recommend visiting.
4.8 on February 11, 2014
My wife and I came for a friend's wedding and we also used it a an early getaway for Valentine's Day as grandma was watching our 23 month old. Our room on the river was very peaceful and elegant. Our only issued we had was cooler weather as it kept us from getting into the pool. We are already trying to figure out our next getaway.

I stayed at Club Continental for a wedding. Beautiful reception site! Wish my stay was during a warmer month to enjoy the pool. The hotel room was large with a kitchenette making it perfect for an extended stay. When making the reservation, we were told the room only slept two people with one king size bed. There was actually a king bed and twin bed in one room and a pull out couch in another room. I suggest confirming that before arrival as we would have shared with friends to save cost.
5 on January 20, 2014
The Club Continental is a hidden gem. I'm so glad it was recommended to me! To wake up every morning and see the sun rising over the rolling river was so peaceful, making my 9-day trip a retreat. The staff was great...housekeeping noticed I was drinking all the water and making coffee every day and began leaving an abundance of both without me asking. The dining room was a wonderful place to eat...everything I tried was delicious. I won't stay anywhere else when I am in the area again.

Surrounded by beautiful moss-laden oaks, our well-equipped suite on the riverbank was just what we needed after a long drive to Jacksonviile to attend a funeral. Harry checked us in, walked us to our rooms and helped carry in our luggage. We had a wonderful view of the sunset from our balcony. Next morning, the breakfast was delicious and the waitress was friendly and prompt. Everything was perfect!

I loved the river suite. Absolutely beautiful.

The rooms are very spacious and the view is beautiful. When we arrived, the carpets were wet (possibly due to a cleaning), so we had to keep everything off of the floor, including socks on our feet, until the following day. We tried phoning the office, but no one answered. The dining staff is always friendly, and we appreciated the omelet station on the one day.

I have been coming to this place for some 12 years now. It is an incredible value and the staff is outstanding and very accommodating! All the rooms in the historic mansion are quaint and overlook the Saint Johns River. Your stay includes membership to the Club Continental during your stay which includes a free full breakfast M-F and a great continental breakfast Sat-Sun. Use of pool and tennis is also allowed. It also allows you to 5 star-white table cloth dining at a great value. Moreover, it also includes access to The River House Pub next door which is a quaint private drinking club also overlooking The Saint Johns River.
4.4 on November 19, 2013
The Club is a beautiful place and our Daughters wedding was amazing! The food, the service the beauty of the club was way more then I expected! I am very excited to see the photos because it was just so beautiful! But I am sad to say the rooms were a little dirty which surprised me a little but all in all I would love to stay again and if my youngest daughter wanted to marry at the club I would be very excited!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Southern hospitality at it's best. We need to travel to Jacksonville 2x a year now. Friends recommended Club Continental but we did not expect what we saw. We had a riverview room on the main floor. It was very modern and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding. Both the fresh buffet and menu were available and included options. Servers were also over the top. We will be back frequently. Thanks so much Club Continental. Ashleys from Winnipeg, Canada

Everything from the amazing view of the St. John's River, to the perfectly relaxing room, I could not ask for more and can't wait to stay again.

Try to leave your cell phone in your room when you go to dinner and enjoy the view of the St. Johns River and the wonderful landscaping. The River Suites are huge rooms and very comfortable. Food in the restaurant is unique and delicious. Staff service is friendly, courteous and warm. A wonderful place to stay when I'm in Orange Park on business.

I just LOVED staying there. It was like going back in time.We stayed in the River House suites with a balcony right on the river.I loved that though it was updated, it still had the feel of a country mansion from the 30's My niece was married there on the terrace overlooking the river. Couldn't have been more romantic. Also enjoyed 'retiring' to the pub after dinner. The staff there and at the mansion couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating.

We stayed here on our wedding night saturday 10/26. On that day we called in advance to request a bottle of Champagne in our room. Communication seemed a bit dicey but long story short they figured it out. When we arrived it wasn't there and at that time we just decided to go without it. The next morning when I informed them they were very accomodating and took great care of us. I would certainly stay here again, as I honestly believe this was a rare mishap that likely doesn't normally happen.
4.4 on October 29, 2013
We stayed in the Mediterranean Suite. Loved it.The view was incredible. Living room and large bedroom with extremely comfortable king size bed.. thought I could stay there forever. I would definitely go back but not on a weekend. It is definitely a wedding hot spot..Good for the hotel but not good for the guests staying there who are not invited to the wedding..very noisy.. at one point I called to the office to see how long the wedding was going to last and no one answered the phone.. in all fairness everything except a few lingering drunks returning from the small pub on the ground, was quiet by midnight. Definitely worth a stay just not on the weekend.. the breakfast was very good also but other meals aren't served on saturday or Sunday evening.

Warm welcome, charming area, a clean, comfortable,and spacious room. And, a balcony with an incredible view over the river. What could be be better? The only thing that could use improvement was the breakfast! We had to leave by 8:10 am, but hot breakfast was only served from 9 am on. And for the cold breakfast, there was no protein. These days, we don't just want to have carbohydrates and fruit before starting the day!

I stayed in the French room for my wedding night with my husband. It was a beautiful room and gorgeous setting on the river.

I want everyone who looks at this venue online to know how truly amazing my stay way. The Club Continental is a hidden gem and it's important that future guests hear specifically what an impact your staff made on my vacation. I am a Guest Service Manager in Lodging at the Walt Disney World Resort. I manage a resort with 1600+ rooms that runs at approximately 97% occupany. As you can imagine, I was in heaven at The Club Continental. I was sincerely impressed by the level of service, quality of amenities, pristine grounds and accomodations made for me as a guest. More importantly, I was able to relax and enjoy MY vacation; for that I will always be indebted. I am your biggest advocate and have been talking with my team about the service I hope we provide, and that I witnessed and experienced this weekend. Special thanks for Harry, for his guest service recovery when our room was having plumbing issues and for the Housekeeping (Guest Show) employee who made it her goal to clean our new room first so we could move prior to my best friend's wedding. I am already saving for my next weekend in paradise!

Stayed at Club Continental for a military reunion. A local squadron officer negotiated a group rate, about half the normal room rate, which was a super value. If we had paid normal rate, I would have dropped a star overall for value. Room was very spacious and right on St. John's River with tremendous view. Unfortunately, the ancient AC ran all the time and did not dehumidify adequately; they were fixing it when we left. Other minor room issues were dealt with promptly by management. Some parts of room were not dusted well, but overall it was okay. The restaurant service and food were both excellent, and the staff were really helpful and courteous. For a gathering, it was a great venue, since we did not have to drive anywhere for our group meetings and dinner. The pool was great, and worked well for lap swimming. The patio and dock were great places to sit and talk. Overall we give 4 stars.
4.2 on October 19, 2013
We were in a River Suite and the view looking over the river was spectacular. Pictures do not do it justice. The suites were roomy and well appointed. The property was gorgeous and the grounds well maintained. A little piece of paradise tucked away in Orange Park! Highly recommend it!

Wedding weekend. Reception food quite good, but breakfast each morning was exactly the same menu. Would like to have seen some egg options without potato. They over powered the baked "omelet".

I had an eating disorder and Harry personally took care of me by arranging for a blender. All employees were very friendly and accommodating. I would certainly stay there again and I will recommend to others. Thanks for a wonderful stay. I was not impressed with your lap top computer that was available for the guests. It was very slow and difficult to operate. This does need attention!

I have stayed at a 5 star Ritz Carlton and The Club Continental has the potential to rise to that extreme with just a little tweaking. The grounds are absolutely lovely! The dining room clean and beautiful with just the right soft music appropriate for the historic structure. I read all the comments before booking the suite and I was a little nervous because of a few bad remarks concerning cleanliness. I saw no evidence of such in my room. Upon arrival the office for check inn was not perfect but the gentleman who greeted us was kind and very personable. I WILL BE BACK, when I can savor more than 1 day in such a lovely get away!!! Mary

For our first night in Florida we stayed at the Club Continental before heading on to our business conference on Amelia Island. We liked it so much that once our conference was finished we checked out of the hotel there a day early so that we could go back to the Club Continental. If we are ever in that neighborhood again, we will definitely stay there!
5 on September 29, 2013
We stayed at Club Continental in STE 204 the night before our wedding and the night of our wedding. The room had a great view and was big enough for the girls to get ready in the day of the wedding. Picture taking was great too with the in-room fireplace and the balcony over looking the river.

The rooms are what I would expect for an old mansion converted into a B&B. The room themes are very cute and it makes you feel at home. Unfortunately, some restoration to the rooms is needed, but it didn't affect the quality of our stay. The walls are pretty thin...we could hear the neighbor snoring. The building and grounds are beautiful. The breakfast was simply delicious with an amazing view of the river at sunrise. I definitely recommend the B&B if you're looking for something unique and homey.

We stayed at the Club Continental during a recent visit to see friends in the Orange Park area; unfortunately, we were only in town one night and were not able to take advantage of the wonderful complimentary breakfast options, but everything sounded wonderful. Our room was beautiful, clean, and cozy/comfy...and let me just say that the bed was UBER heavenly! In fact, I was so impressed with the luxury of the sheets/pillowcases that I snuck-a-peek at the tags and went online to purchase a set for myself (The Comphy Co)!! We will definitely look forward to staying here again on our next visit and can hopefully spend more time relaxing and enjoying the grounds and amenities!

Our daughter's wedding, (in the middle of the wetest month in northeast Florida and busiest month for huricane season btw) went off with the grace of God and the fantastic people at Club Continental!!! Also some of the vendors they recommended. We reheased a day earlier inside as it was raining :( but then the rain stopped so we rehearsed outside as Carla was monitoring Doppler while we reheased. Never rained again:)) I am still getting teary eyed 5 days later as I write this. Thanks to all the staff for a "Priceless Moment" in so many peoples memories!!!

We came for a friends wedding. Everything was very beautiful and clean. The servers at the wedding dinner were nice and courteous. The food, however, was disappointing. The stuffed grouper tasted like it had been frozen. The beef was fine, but not filet mignon like we anticipated. And the sauce for the beef did not taste homemade, but from a package.

We spent four nights at Club Continental. We discovered a treasure from another time. The room was luxurious with a balcony and a river view. The ground with gardens of live oak and drooping Spanish moss and pool were an oasis. There is a full off the menu breakfast or a serve yourself breakfast and an excellent dining room for lunch and diner. We had business in the area and found this hotel a treat.

Love this place. Food is excellent as are the people. The only thing I would recommend for this room is a small table in the bathroom, there's no place to put things. Also, the place needs to be dusted better as do the glass tables. if you don't get everything clean makes you question what you can't see. I would definitely stay here again.

The wife and I stayed here for 1 night on our beginning trip through Florida and 4 nights at the end of our trip to Florida. I have retired naval friends living in Orange Park and wanted to visit with them. I found the Club Continental purely by luck on the net! Our rooms were perfect, high quality and deluxe in every way. The grounds, landscaping and views of the St. Johns are second to none. The entire staff from check-in to check-out was superb and I have stayed in some of the finest hotels in Europe and these wonderful people go out of their way to tend to your needs. View the pictures on this site, they are nice, but you must walk the grounds to experience how lovely the Club Continental truly is. My wife and i will ALWAYS stay at Club Continental when visiting the Jacksonville, Orange Park area of Florida. Oh! The dining was elegent and the Chef prepared some of the most delicious plates I have ever had the previliege to enjoy! GO There!

Stayed in main house suite; beautiful old home, Mizner-esque in design and detailing. Wanted to love it BUT furnishings, case goods, linens, etc. are tired, sad, worn and badly need updating. Food was uninspired to put it kindly. Service was very good, particularly maitre'd and dining servers. River view is lovely; be aware, however, that area surrounding the club is not great.

This is a beautiful place, with the nicest people in the world working there. Unfortunately it is in need of renovation--but more than that it is in need of a good cleaning! We were with a group for a wedding and the other rooms I saw looked as if they had been updated, but ours was not good (301 in the River View). Even the updated rooms were not clean. Dust on headboards, baseboards dusty, windows filthy. All service people were fantastic, especially Harry in the office. Sooo nice!

We stayed overnight in one of the River Suites after our son's wedding. The view of the St. Johns River was beautiful and we even saw a couple of manatees the next morning right in front of us. The larger than average room was very clean and roomy with many amenities available. We missed the complimentary breakfast the next morning since we were up so late at the River Club after the reception and slept late. We enjoyed our short stay.

If you're traveling to Jacksonville and are looking for a Luxury Hotel that has it all, try the Club Continental Suites. The Hotel property is gorgeous! It feels like you're in Italy or Spain. The grounds are well landscaped and the pools are beautiful. It is a perfect place to R E L A X... We arrived a little early for check in and went to the cabana at the pool and had a fantastic lunch! My wife had a brocolli salad and I had the shrimp salad. Both were a pleasant surprise! The Suites are large and well kept and have all the amenities. The river view is wonderful, and sunrise is terrific. There is a really nice paved trail along the river for walking or running. After walking, go to the contintental breakfast. They make their own coffee cake and pastry! The fruit is fresh and they even serve omlets and eggs! If you enjoy tennis they have some very nice courts. Bring your racket... You won't be disappointed!

My elderly in-laws live in Orange Park, and in our frequent visits we used to stay at the generic three-star hotels in the area. That changed permanently when we discovered Club Continental - we'll never stay anywhere else when overnighting in Orange Park. The views of the St. Johns River are stunning here, both from the room and from the expansive grounds. The rooms are beautifully appointed and generous, and the inn is remarkably quiet. Breakfast was simple but more than acceptable, with a good selection of breads, cereals, fresh fruit, and, on the morning of our last stay, made-to-order omelets. Added extra: It's very close to River Road, on a long bluff overlooking the St. Johns River and several beautiful, older homes -- one of the nicest and most relaxing walks in the greater Jacksonville area.

We stayed in the river suites for one night because my high school reunion took place in the main clubhouse. What a lovely place! The river views are amazing, and the property is beautifully maintained. The only drawback is that there's little to do in the surrounding town.

We recently stayed in the River Suites, #102 to be exact, and the view from our first floor window was of the St.John's River. Not your usual motel view. The king size bed was comfortable, a little soft for our liking. But the room layout was very charming and inviting. The grounds of the property was very "old world" Floridia, with huge Live Oaks with moss, meandering gardens, 3 very nice looking pools, 7 tennis courts, and a wonderful hot breakfast with fresh fruit, muffins and bagels, coffee, etc. that was included in the price of our stay!! The service in the dining area was very attentive to our wants and needs. If you want something different than the "run of the mill" motels/hotels, check out Club Continental

We were visiting town for a wedding that took place at Club Continental, we arranged to stay and were very pleased with the staff, food, room, etc. They accomodated an early check in, our room "The Italian" was very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. I would definetly return and recomed this property.

We came for a friends wedding . It was our first time to your properties and found them beautiful. The room over looking to water was great and the room and furnishing made us feel very comfortable in our temporary surroundings. The various staff we encountered were very helpful and friendly as well We truly enjoyed our stay at Club Continental Thanks, Gary & Kathy Weisfeld

Even though it rained, forcing the ceremony indoors, my family and friends had a blast and so did I. My husband and I stayed in the Continental Suite upstairs. The only reason I have 4 stars is because there are near to no outlets-- due to the age of the building, I suspect. That's a small drop in the bucket, but everything else was just so luxurious and so worth the value. I would love to visit again.

This is a great property to enjoy a relaxing romantic weekend getaway! We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent together at this awesome resort. We hope to go back very soon! The view of the river off of our balcony was absolutely gorgeous...

had a great stay, but wish the furnishings were a little cleaner in bathroom, saw tiny leaks all over the shower and took a while for the water to get hot.

Wonderful location on the St. John River. Rooms very nice. Staff very helpful and nice. Breakfast is order from a menu on certain days which is better than most hotel free breakfasts. We had stayed here before and would recommend it and will stay here again. There is a little pub next door with a lot of locals come and you can sit on an outside deck.

Exceptional beauty; every creature comfort; clean, elegant and exemplary customer service.Kudos to Rene, the wonderful front desk manager, who turned a minor problem into a major effort to facilitate customer satisfaction (and she did). Run, don't walk to Club Continental. .Michael and Reine, Holderness, NH

We rented room 303 for the 4th of July and the room was clean and decorated nicely but the carpet should be re-stretched or simply replaced. When you open the door, the first thing you notice is a carpet past its prime. Other than that, the room was very nice as usual.

The room was outstanding, great location, flora was spectacular, perfect ringside seat for 4th fireworks...overall a great holiday experience. JH Atlanta

I have had the opportunity to stay at the Club Continental while on business, and I have been delighted by its charm, luxury and incredible history. The Chef prepares the most exquisite meals, the staff are engaging, courteous, extraordinarily helpful, and friendly in all they do. The ambiance created by the owner is matched only by the tranquility of the property and the amazing views of the St. John's river. I will continue to stay at the Club Continental, and I encourage all of my co-workers, friends and family members to stay at the Club at least once. I have never found a better place to be swept up in history while experiencing tranquility. Kelly Vickers

I have stayed in nearly all the rooms over the past 4 years of traveling on business. I have stayed at every major resort in Florida and find Club Continental to be elegant, private, and has old Florida charm with stunning views of old Oaks and serene river views. Do not forget that Dinner is Formal but well worth the treat!

I've spent the night at Club Continental before but never in the main house. I stayed in the Mediterranean suite in the main house. It was large and had a wonderful view. The main house is very old so the room is not modern but classic. There is no balcony like in some other rooms but too me it was beautiful. The bed was so comfortable. I liked the room so much that I rented it for a friend of mine who is getting married in September in Jacksonville.

Club Continental is a beautiful and quiet place to stay right on the St. Johns river. The rooms are very large and whenever I am in Jacksonville, this is the place I will stay!

I stayed one night in the Tower. It was a beautiful room with hardwood floors, a private kitchen, a huge bedroom and a beautiful view. I also enjoyed the swimming pools and the magnificent 200 year old trees. Thanks to Gina for arranging my stay. Robert S.

Although we are infrequent B&B travelers, this stay certainly established the fact that we need to always check out the B&B website before finalizing any travel plans! Took advantage of winter rates and a B&B website gift card special-WOW-what a combination! The grounds of this excellent property are extremely well maintained and the view of the St John's River was incredibly romantic. ... But, the greatest treat was a midnight rendezvous with a digital flash and some of the finest unique settings any photographer could hope for. The river scenes were best in the morning, but the twinkling lights surrounding the outdoor atrium and the spotlights shining on huge oak trees adorned w Spanish moss provided enviable scenes in the twilight. Stay in the elegant, spacious rooms of this historic mansion to capture the best memories as the "Olde World" charm is still prevalent amidst a nice recent renovation. ... And breakfast, in the stately well-groomed dining room, exceeded our "continental" expectations. My wife proclaimed the scrambled eggs "probably the best ever," along w homemade breads, fresh orange juice and hot coffee. Personnel were very accommodating and pleasant- obviously proud of their property. Our only regret, we were 1 week early to view the Christmas arrangements, just commencing on our day of departure!
