I booked a room at Club Continental for an overnight stay due to a business trip. The room was very spacious and overlooked the St. Johns River. I have only one major complaint, and that is that I couldn't stay longer. The bed was very comfortable, and I loved the separate couch and breakfast nook. While I appreciated that I had free WIFI, the connection was very sporadic. Since I was on a work trip, I ended up just setting up a hotspot from my phone and using that connection. Finally, when I checked in, the office staff informed me the pub was open, but when I looked at the information in the room, everything said it was closed on Sundays. It seems that maybe the office staff was used to giving that information every other day of the week and just forgot it was Sunday. I didn't reduce any of the ratings I gave CC because of it. Regardless, I will definitely book again with CC and am hoping that I can bring my husband along for the next trip so he can enjoy the gorgeous hotel room as well!

Recently we suffered an emergency here in Jacksonville, Fl. Our building was without air conditioning for close to eight days. It was functioning intermittently. The hotels in the city were filled to capacity with FEMA personnel in the aftermath of hurricane Irma, and obtaining one was both difficult and costly. We called CC. Bonnie, a key component of the management team took us in immediately on a "day to day" basis at a rate of a Holiday Inn Express. (I'm a businessman, I'm apprised of hotel rates) One night she put us in their Mediterranean Suite. Cost was below $200.00. That room would have carried a MINIMUM cost of $350.00 + per/day in any other high end hotel, resort, or B&B. Bottom line - she did not gouge us; she took care of us! The staff in the dining room; Daniel, Jennifer, and Tobey did as well. Miss Massee came to chat with us one evening at our table and listened to our tale. This jewel in Jacksonville, Florida sits on the banks of the St. John's river and for a seasoned traveler, transports you back to another time and place. For us, even though we reside here, we felt as though we were on vacation, perhaps in an old villa in Italy during a very stressful period.

We stayed at Club Continental because a family wedding was going to be next door to them at the Winterbourne Inn. Club Continental is a beautiful building right on the St John's river. We stayed both in the main building and at the River Suites. The River Suites were particularly nice because of the size and privacy. Most of our extended family chose to stay at other hotels in the Orange Park area to save a little money. I won't mention any names of hotel chains, but they stayed at 3 different ones, and all very extremely disappointed in them. Club Continental remains our first choice in the Orange Park area of Jacksonville.

If you want a wonderful getaway this is the place for you. The rooms are quite large and what can possibly beat the St. Johns waterfront view? The staff is very helpful and responsive.

We stayed the night of our daughter's wedding. We were all very pleased and the staff was welcoming, accomadating and genuine. A beautiful place and a wonderful experience!

One of the best values you can find. Huge room with comfortable bed. The prettiest view you can get in the area.

We spent a wonderful Labor Day weekend at the Club Continental. Our room in the River Suites building was spacious and well appointed with antique furniture, highlighted by a huge four poster bed. Everything about our visit was exceptional. We highly recommend the Club Continental.

If you are looking for a quiet spot on the St. John's River, old oaks dripping with Spanish moss, beauty tucked into every corner of the garden, walls that have stories to tell, and a chance to slow down and enjoy it all, we highly recommend the Club Continental. I will not ask how much butter is in the breakfast casserole. I am too happy to clean my plate, have a second cup of coffee and pretend to read the newspaper while gazing at the water. We will be back.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review! Please do consider staying with us again and enjoying that beautiful view. Happy Travels,

We were coming into town one day ahead of Hurricane Irma for a family wedding. The wedding time was moved up. The staff let us check in early so we could get changed and clean up. All of the food was great and staff was friendly. Hopefully, we will be able to visit again and stay longer.
4.6 on September 12, 2017
I made a reservation months ago, but a lot had changed due to Irma making its way up Florida. The staff at CC were extremely flexible and understanding. The room was beautiful and despite the crazy weather everything was perfect.

We stayed in a River Suite room and were very pleased at our find. The property is absolutely beautiful, quiet, clean (really clean!), and the staff go out of their way to be helpful. It is very laid back and we would definitely stay again. We did not try the food but if it is anything like the rest, I am sure it is great too - thus the high rating.

Absolutely love this bed & breakfast romantic sanctuary. We like the river front balcony rooms . Spacious , clean and comfortable. The grounds are a beautiful garden . A really nice getaway place .

We attended the LaRocca 50th wedding celebration at Club Continental in Orange Park, FL on August 19, 2017. We were most impressed with your hidden gem. It was a beautiful Inn, great service, and we are definitely going to visit here again. Five-star venue!
Thank you for your kind review! You and your guests were wonderful and we are so happy to have been a part of your very special day. Best wishes to you and your family.

We reserved a total of 10 rooms for the entire weekend for the Wedding party and some out of town guests, as well as a room for the newlyweds. All of the rooms were clean and super pretty with great views of the St. Johns River. The food provided for the Wedding was absolutely delicious! The only issue we had was in the billing of the rooms, we were overcharged a significant amount for certain rooms and not charged at all for some rooms (totaling about $1000 overcharged). The day of the wedding it added stress as they had to find us to cancel all payments and recharge the correct amounts which took until the middle of the following week to go through the bank. It was a simple mistake that was made and would not affect me staying there again, as it was all fixed, just the added stress on our Wedding day was not ideal.
Thank you so much for your kind review. Your wedding was indeed beautiful! I am very sorry about the confusion with billing of the hotel rooms, it was absolutely a mistake on our part and I have taken measures to assure that does not happen again, the last thing we want to do is to add stress a very special day. If you have a chance to visit us again please contact me directly as I would live to give you a complimentary stay in our hotel. Best wishes for the future. Bonnie Manager 904-264-6070

Staying at Club Continental, even on business, is like a mini-vacation. Stunningly beautiful property, "old Florida" feeling, great food.
3.6 on August 18, 2017
You can tell they care about their guest with little things that most places do not do; tissue boxes in bath and living area and night light in bathroom. Staff was very friendly except for housekeeping. Housekeeping does a good job, but don't expect them to make eye contact or speak to you. Other than that, everyone and everything was 100%. Loved our stay and will be back.
Thank you for your kind review! We all try very hard to make our guests feel welcome and pampered! If you have a chance please let me know which room you stayed in so that I can address our housekeeping staff! We really appreciate all feedback because it only makes us better! I hope you have a chance to visit us again. Best, Bonnie Hotel Manager

Easily the most beautiful B&B I have ever stayed at. Orange Park's best kept secret, Club Continental has the perfect location on the river to enjoy spectacular sunrises from almost every room. The magnificent mansion and manicured grounds offer the most spectacular surroundings to relax and enjoy your stay. The staff is friendly and hospitable. I travel to Jacksonville for business and I will now make Club Continental my location of choice from now on.
4.0 on August 12, 2017
Club continental is an oasis in Orange Park - and makes a welcome change from the concrete boxes which are the hotel chains. Great value really for a themed room and full breakfast. There is a dress code for lunch and dinner which is also a welcome change. Some refurbishment of the Italian room would be good but overall wouldn't change the opinion
Thank you for taking the time to give us a review, we really appreciate your kind words and compliments. We welcome any and all input as it helps to make us better!, We will take a close look at the Italian room and find some updates! We look forward to seeing you again if your travels allow. Best!

I spent approx. 45 min. studying all the different rooms which each have their own distinct style. My room was confirmed, but when I arrived I was told that the room was given to someone else. I asked why and stated I was not happy with the situation. I was told the manager would call me with an explanation. Waited and no call. The next day at check out we were told the room we had chosen was an animal friendly room and smelled of dog so they had to close it down. What to believe.... It was given to someone else as per the front check-in staff or the dog story?! So disappointing especially since the grounds were lovely, the room we had was fine if that was your style (not ours), the breakfast which was included was delicious and all other staff was great. If there is a problem with a room have the courtesy to discuss this with your guest! A good idea would be to also indicate which rooms are pet friendly. Could of had so much more business from us and our clients , but you blew it!

I've traveled the State of Florida for the past 35 years....and when I found the Club Continental about 30 years ago.....I've been staying there ever since.

We had my daughters wedding at this stunning venue!!!! Decor, architecture and St John River views of the 1920s Mansion was exactly what we were looking for! It screamed for feathers, broaches and decor of that era!!! Jacob, Emily and Gloria? On duty that day went above and beyond and accomplished my every request!! All our guests were taken care of and they love everything The Club had to offer!!! Thank all of the staff that had a hand from start to finish of our special to to help make it a fabulous success!!! I would highly recommend The Club to anyone who asks!!!!
4.6 on June 21, 2017
Location superb with great views over the St Johns. Our room was very spacious with top quality decor and furnishings. We didn't use the Dining facilities other than for breakfast, so I am unable to comment on the overall Dining experience. The total oackage however is well worth the outlay. I would recommend Club Continental to anyone who wants more than the standard hotel fare on offer in Orange Park.
3.8 on June 20, 2017
Stayed a few days before my daughter's wedding at this venue. The rooms were very nice. Wish I had more time to enjoy the lovely grounds and pools. Restaurant was good and prices reasonable. I would go back just for a quiet week-end!

I have been going to the Club Continental (River Suites) for many years now and they continue to deliver outstanding service. The rooms, grounds, pools and dining areas are very welcoming. Their staff is always friendly and helpful. You can not beat the location-starring at the St. John's River is mesmerizing. On occasion, you may have a manatee visit you while sitting on the back deck! This place is a gem! They book fast, so don't hesitate to make your reservation.

My wife and Iand both of our daughters, along with my sister all visited the Orange Park, Florida area this week. We really enjoyed staying at Club Continental. The food service was excellent, and the rooms were very clean. We liked that it seemed more like a home and not a hotel. We will stay there again if our travels take us back to that area.
Thank you for much for your kind review, we feel like this is our home too! We hope to see you in the future. Happy travels!

Had a wonderful stay in the French room. Beautiful view of the river. We booked our daughter's wedding while we were here. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. The only reason I did not give the room 5 stars was it took forever to get hot water in the bathroom to shower. I do realize the age of this property, so I am more forgiving due to the charm of this place. Looking forward to our next stay!

Good value, pretty property, great view of the river and the fire place was a plus! Dinner and breakfast on site was good and they had some gluten free options. The maintenance person either hates their job or has no idea what they're doing. Visible patches and repairs done in a hap-hazard way diminish and cheapen what is otherwise a pretty, historic property.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review our property. We appreciate any and all feedback and use it as an opportunity for improvement. Would you please let me know if you stayed in one of our newer River Suites or if you chose one of the historic rooms in the mansion?

We stayed in the Italian Room February 19-23 2017. The staff was friendly, helpful and offered assistance several times during our stay. The room was in the older part of the property so expectations were not for the perfect place. The room was nicely decorated. The bed was firm but the topper was overly soft and made it difficult to roll over during the night. There was plenty of storage for hanging and folded clothes. The bath was adequate and had a large medicine cabinet for personal items. The enamel was flaking off the tub around the drain. It made it impossible to take a relaxing bath, shower only. The window in the bath only had a sheer curtain and no shade, we draped a bath towel over the window to secure privacy. There is a squeak just outside the bathroom that is loud enough to wake up a person, if the bathroom is used during the night. There was a nice view of the river out of the rooms main windows. When we arrived there was a large tree branch laying on the roof which I asked them to remove. They did remove the branch that day which was great, but I did not appreciate them using our room, as an access way, to climb out the window to remove the branch. The dining room was nice. The continental breakfast layout was adequate. We ate breakfast in the dining room on Tuesday. This was an unpleasant experience that is too long to review here but I would explain to management if they want to call.

The River Suites at Club Continental were perfect for the accommodations for my wedding weekend. My bridal party and I booked several of the rooms for the weekend and they were perfect. My venue was The Winterbourne Inn, which was right across the parking lot making it so convenient. My make-up artist and hair stylist were able to set up in my room to do the hair and makeup for everyone. The rooms are that large. I would totally recommend The River Suites at The Club Continental for any bride and her party, friends and family.

We stayed at the River Suites for our daughter's wedding at the Winterbourne. Family and friends stayed in 5 of the River Suite rooms and everyone was very satisfied.

This was the first time that I have stayed here and I can say that I look forward to coming back. I stayed in one of the River Suites and the view from the balcony was amazing especially at night. The room was very spacious and well kept. The grounds were absolutely beautiful with the live oaks and Spanish moss. There is a small tavern on site which sits on the river as well. As stated in the title, they are military friendly which is always very appreciated my veterans such as myself.

If you love antiques and understand that the quirks and slight imperfections are part of the charm, this is your kind of place. The property is beautiful, the rooms are spacious.

We didn't get the chance to have dinner, but enjoyed the breakfast options and the bar.

My husband and I (along with many family members) stayed at the Club Continental the night before and night after our wedding. We stayed at the river suites and they were beautiful! The view over the St. John's river was amazing! My bridal party and I got ready in the Continental Suite and Mexican Room which was perfect because there is a door connecting the two rooms so we had plenty of space for hair and makeup. The bathroom in the Continental Suite was incredibly beautiful and the terrace that overlooks the ceremony area was also perfect! All of the rooms were charming and and definitely romantic. I would highly recommend staying here (especially for a wedding!)

I stayed over for an event at Club Continental and it is a hidden jewel. The Christmas décor in the main building was so beautiful and elegant with a different tree in every public room and greenery everywhere! The room we had was spacious, beautifully appointed, and the view impossible to beat! My only caveat is the bed is very FIRM. I will bring a topper the next time we stay - and there will be a next time!
Thank you for your kind review! We value and appreciate each of our guests and hope to make each stay memorable. Please tell me which room you were in so that I can make sure to have a comfortable bed in there. Thank you and Happy Holidays!! Bonnie

Property is beautiful. The landscaping is truly elegant. I only had breakfast so my dining experience was limited. If your into tennis, the pro is terrific.

Stayed over night on a business trip and loved it! I have stayed here regularly over the years. The estate is absolutely beautiful and tranquil. The room is modern and had a screened in deck overlooking the river. I highly recommend Club Continental.

Room 304, Awesome view of the St John's River and great place to see July 4th Fireworks! BIG room, clean, very comfortable, good value. The bar and restaurant were closed so no comments there. The breakfast was very continental but offers a great view of the river in a nice dining room. The grounds are beautiful and the staff are very friendly. I would stay again.

We have family in the area so we decided to stay at this hotel so we could visit and entertain. Yes, we walked up the stairs... no elevator and we are in our 70's but we did OK. Lugging Luggage, we asked for help. Our family was very impressed as were we with the whole set up. We had a corner room on the 3rd floor. It was fantastic. we loved the openness and views. At night and in the morning we enjoyed the entertainment of the birds and manatees. The water was clear and the manatees were just below us eating. What a treat! We will be back in the area and will make reservations here. We never made breakfast, although the menu was in our rooms, we read it, it seemed like nice selections BUT... it was finished by 9 AM and we are not getting up, rush out to eat before 9 AM … when we can have a nice lunch and dinner out, at our leisure and have a simple breakfast in our suite. We had a full refrig., sink, and stove... not that we cooked, but we did serve appetizers before dinner and desserts. The pool was great. Adults only section, which we loved, and shade at certain times. We wish we had a longer stay… more time to just enjoy the pool. There was a snack bar there but we did not have any food. Alas… so many options so little available time.

I came down for a friend's wedding and loved the place. The rooms were very large and neat. The staff were friendly and helpful. The wedding was beautifully handled by the faculty. It has almost made me want to come back for my own wedding and honeymoon!!

We were delighted to celebrate our 9th anniversary in such a pleasant relaxing hideaway, all in our very own backyard! Who knew ?!! Having gone on an off day, it was a doable budget vs just a night on the town or something ordinary. So, I would say our stay was extra-ordinary and the staff were very pleasant and went out of their way to make our stay special. Especially Miss Jan, she was wonderful We were very Blessed and enjoyed our stay. :) Mrs. C.D

Club Continental is one of the hidden treasures that the Jacksonville area of Florida offers. Club Continental is a wonderful old estate that is tucked away in Orange Park. It is situated on the St. John river and has fantastic views of the river.

Beautiful, quiet, and peaceful stay. Great location allows for a walk along the St. John River. Enjoyed the beautiful restaurant and a very good full breakfast. We stayed in the Winchester room which has a beautiful view of the river through three hundred year old oak trees. We will be back some day.

Had my wedding and stayed at the venue. Both the groom and I were extremely happy with the Mediterranean room we had. It was not only beautiful but also obviously well-maintained. Our guests like the River Suites they stayed in. Another guest stayed in the Mexican room and she raved about how beautiful and wonderful the room was. Usually a room is clean and modern and I appreciate that but this place brings decor to another level and I love it! Can't wait to come back for the 1, 2, 3 ... yr anniversary!!

Family gathering for Christmas. Everything was beautiful and magically. The dining room was closed for the holiday during our stay, but the breakfast omelet bar was outstanding. Thank you for a memorable stay.

I go see my grandchildren and because I don't live in the area, I stay at this beautiful, peaceful Bed and Breakfast. They are on the river and the area is so beautiful. I found this place 4 years ago and this is where I stay when I visit. I would recommend it for anyone who likes the moss on trees,quite and wonderful food. The breakfast is supreme compare to other places. Beautiful place for a wedding or any special event. The staff are wonderful. I just can't say enough about this place.

My hubby and I just celebrated our ten year anniversary this past week with s cruise. We stopped on Sunday to visit some friends. They recommend The Club as a place to stay that night. We loved it!!!! We originally had booked a room in the main house but since there was a Christmas party in the dinning hall that night. They let us upgrade to a suite for the same price. The room and view was so beautiful! I give it 5 stars across the board. Because of the Christmas party we didn't get to experience the onsite dinning, but if breakfast was any indication. Then I'm sure its to die for. We will be back to stay again and plan on book a weekend for my hubby's patents for their anniversary. We've paid the same for a hotel on the North Carolina cost and it was nothing even close to this. Great value and beautiful!!!
5 on December 16, 2015
Our room~~305~~ was perfect for our sons wedding! It had everything we needed. The view was spectacular. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff was gracious and very helpful. We did dine there for dinner, and the food was definitely 5 star.

My wife and I loved just about everything about the place - the room, common areas, restaurant, beautiful grounds and historical richness. It was clean and well maintained and everyone we interacted with was exceedingly nice and helpful. Our only, very small, criticism was the length of time it took to get hot water in the bathroom. It finally came after what seemed like many minutes, and it was quite hot when it arrived, but it was long enough that I thought the water heater was broken and was about to call the management.

Even though I only get the opportunity to visit Club Continental when I am in the area on business, it is like an oasis. The rooms are so nice, the food is excellent, the ambiance is soothing, and the members of the staff are always helpful and pleasant. I highly recommend Club Continental whether traveling on business, for a weekday or weekend getaway, or as a meeting or wedding venue.

My wife and I were very pleased with our stay at Club Continental. The riverfront room and view were very nice. We enjoyed relaxing on our balcony.

The Winterbourne Inn was the venue for my daughter's wedding. We used the room during the day for a changing room. Staff were helpful and courteous. The Winterbourne catered the dinner for the reception. We were pleased and would recommend the Inn.
4.2 on October 26, 2015
Beautiful property. Grounds and buildings need TLC. Shocked at how management mistreated ground staff...raised voice and condescending. Andrew was quick on requests including bringing a new hair dryer after the one in the room started smoking. He also thoughtfully delivered a room deodorizing machine. We can understand smoking on a balcony, but cigars (and pipes) should be smoked away from the building.

My newly fiance and I spent a weekend at Club Continental and had amazing experience! We arrived on a Thursday and departed on a Saturday and had nothing, but great service! The staff was wonderful, the food was delicious, and the room was better than the pictures! We would both highly recommend staying at this bed and breakfast to anyone considering traveling to the Jacksonville area. Location was perfect and not far from the beach, shopping, great restaurants, and more!

The Club Continental is a diamond in the rough. It has lots of the year's gone by with it's charm and beauty. The room we had overlooked the river and the sunset and sunrise were out of this world. The staff were what you would expect from a 4/5 B & B. We arrived on Saturday for one night and they do not have the restaurant open on the weekends for it is reserved for special occasions such as weddings. This did make it a little disappointing when with such a beautiful place and a long drive, we were looking forward to a very nice dinner...... had to go someplace else. They did serve breakfast, but again on the weekends this is kept to the minimum with only a limited continental breakfast. For the price of the room, you should have received a must better breakfast which we understand you do during the week. We do not think it would take much to correct this for future visitors to this outstanding B&B. Loved our stay and would come back......

We visited a number of wedding venues before finding The Club Continental, and it immediately took our breath away. The staff, venue and food were all fantastic and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding!

We stayed here for just one night for a wedding we attended. We were thrilled with our accommodations and very pleased with the service. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. The next time we are in the area we will be back for a longer visit.

The grounds are beautiful and located on the St. John's River just south of Jacksonville. u are surrounded by large oak trees and flower gardens and fountains and pools. The rooms are right on the river edge offering wonderful view. The furnishings are unique and fashionable yet with a comfortable an inviting feel. It is within a short driving distance of major highways and a variety of restaurants, malls and movie theaters. They have a lovely dining room and delicious buffet breakfast overlooking the river and gardens. ideal location for a private retreat or for a wedding reception, family reunion or party. One o my wife's all tie favorite locations. The rooms are spacious and have a small kitchen sink and refrigerator.

It was really hard to leave the beauty of my river view room and the hotel grounds. The staff of Club Continental went out of their way to make me feel welcome. I stayed four nights and loved being there.

Hosted our wedding at this beautiful establishment! The service was grade A.

I travel all over the State of Florida, and have for the past 30 years. The CLUB CONTINENTAL is one of the most complete, and beautiful places in this Country, and I will not stay anywhere else when in the Jacksonville area.
5 on August 06, 2015
From the first time we entered we were greeted and welcomed as if we were family. This B&B sits on 26 acres and the St. Johns River. The landscape and Live oaks are truly impressive. We were taken around the property and told the history of the Club Continental then we were escorted to our room which overlooked the river. This is a very nice facility and encourage anyone that gets the chance to stay take advantage of it. You will not be disappointed.

My daughter's wedding took place at The Club Continental on June 7, 2015. The Club provided the venue and food, as well as several guest rooms for our party. We could not have been happier with every aspect of our stay, from the quality of the food, service, and helpful assistance of everyone we encountered. It really was the perfect choice for our daughter's wedding, and would also be a wonderful spot for a weekend, or longer, to relax and enjoy the beauty of the river and surrounding area.
5 on June 09, 2015
I was thrilled to find the Club Continental -- beautiful rooms, excellent service, fantastic food for dinner (especially the grouper!), delicious (free) breakfast (made for you), and gorgeous grounds, in a quiet, relaxed environment on the St. John River. The price was hard to believe -- luxury at a cost less than a Holiday Inn! I enthusiastically recommend Club Continental to everyone. Makes me wish that I had an opportunity to visit the Jacksonville/Orange Park area more often!

We were pleased with your beautiful setting on the river and enjoyed out stay. On the other hand our bathroom fan rattled noisily and we had to call at 4 p.m. to have our room made up. Overall, we would say that is still a beautiful setting but beginning to show some much needed updating.
3.6 on May 29, 2015
We originally booked the French Room but were upgraded to the Mediterranean Room upon check-in, which was more of a suite rather than just a room. We had an excellent view of the river and grounds. Sure, the place is almost a century old, and the walls, paint, old bathroom, lack of numerous electrical outlets, wait for hot water, and creaky floors showed it. Then again, that is part of the charm of the old mansion. The grounds were well kept, the koi were huge, and the gardens quaint. We would definitely book there on our next trip to Orange Park.

For the most part the room was clean. However, there were crumbs on one of the sitting chairs when we first arrived. The cleaning crew was very pleasant but seemed to take a long time to get to our room. It was usually much later in the day. This was a little frustrating because we had out-of-town guests that we expected to be visiting.

I stayed at Club Continental over the weekend for a wedding. Everything was fantastic. I would def stay there again!

our good friend's son was getting married at the Club Continental and we decided to stay for a long weekend. Could not believe how beautiful the buildings and grounds were, what an outstanding property would highly recommend
4.2 on May 09, 2015
My husband and I stayed 2 nights and were pleased with the accommodations, breakfast, and the one dinner we ate at the restaurant. The one thing that disappointed us was apparent confusion the first morning when a large group (170 people) arrived for a breakfast event and the staff seemed unprepared to handle the large group and the hotel guests. Having said that, we would likely stay again if the opportunity arose and would recommend it to others looking for an old Florida experience away from the bland chain hotels.
5 on May 08, 2015
The room was beautiful and the view was even more amazing. The service was enjoyable and the location allowed for a relaxing adventure. The view inspired my artistic side and I began a new painting. I will definitely be back to stay here again Many times.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at Club Continental. Stayed in room with balcony over the St. John's River. Walked the beautiful grounds and the two mile stretch next to the river - felt safe and relaxed the whole time. Room had a small kitchen and sitting room and was able to visit with our family comfortably. Pub wasn't open on Sunday night but enjoyed a tasty breakfast before leaving.

Great place to stay for attending a wedding on the grounds.Draw back went to use bubble tub and debris and mold came out of jets.It was so gross I had to clean it up before showing.Continental breakfast was great and free but only served hot food from 8am to 9am.No 24/7 desk service had an early flight out and had to drop keys in front of office door due to no drop slot.The view from the river front suite was fantastic for the morning sunrise

We planned my daughter's wedding and reception at Club Continental and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The dinner service was exceptional and we received so many compliments from the guest on the meal. In addition, several of the attendees made onsite reservations and truly enjoyed the experience and stay at the mansion and riverfront suites. If you are in for a cocktail 'the pub' next door is a must! Since the reason for our stay was the wedding I must say the location is breathtaking for such a special occasion. The view of the river, the majestic oak trees and ambiance of a stately mansion are the perfect setting for a fairytale wedding ceremony. The staff at Club Continental are also very professional and accommodating. I truly recommend this location for a romantic get away, a wedding, or any special occasion.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the River Suites. It was totally relaxing and we really didn't need to go anywhere. Food was exceptional, room was awesome and peaceful. We enjoyed the history of the building. It was all so convenient and loved the little pub next door togo to at the end of the day. We used this as a stopover on our way to NC and it was a delightful and restful addition to our trip. Two days is just barely enough to wind down but Continental Club made it possible.

I knew this was my kind of place when the key to the room was attached to one of those "postage guaranteed" fobs and the key was metal with no chips. There was also a separate metal key to the lobby to be used after 10 p.m. This was a mid-20th century hotel room with AC and a flat screen. It used to be the residence of the family that started the Palmolive Soap Company. The property is directly on the St. Johns River and has been well-maintained. I'll be back.

My daughter got married on site and we reserved all their rooms and everyone was thrilled! So much so that we locals are making plans to spend the occasional night there!! Thanks for everything!
5 on April 21, 2015
We loved the view and the staff were terrific. We were in Room 105 in the River Suites. Those accommodations were great. The only negative was that the curtains over the large, riverview windows would not close completely and the morning light could not be blocked. The bar could use some better scotch (like Dalwhinnie).Otherwise, the stay was outstanding.

Lovely setting on the water, great view. Staff is very helpful and helpful and always will to help with anything. Breakfast is made to order and is great.

We got married at the Club Continental and stay there for our wedding anniversary each year. Our visit was wonderful as usual except for 2 complaints. We stayed in River Suite 104 and the bed was TERRIBLE. Every time you moved an inch the bed would creak extremely loud to the point that I would wake up my husband if I moved at all. Not exactly romantic. Another issue I had was on one of the bedside lamps, there was a HUGE spiderweb with a spider on it which brings me to wonder how often the rooms are thoroughly cleaned/dusted. Definitely a little disturbing. Other than that, no complaints, but we will not be staying in that room again due to the bed issue. Did not sleep at all.

Fabulous room, exquisite food - would readily recommend it to anyone.

By sheer luck, I found this property online. It was exceptional in every way. Unfortunately the onsite restaurant was closed (Monday) but if breakfast the next morning is any indication of the quality served (and I am quite sure it is) then we will be returning to not only experience the lodging but dinner also. Attention to detail is evident throughout. The grounds made us feel as if we were back in Tuscany. What a pleasure to be out of the big box sterile hotel environment...loved it and will surely return!
3.6 on April 09, 2015
Cannot comment on onsite dining, because we ate elsewhere. We did appreciate the upgrade from Italian to Mediterranean Room, the available staff, being allowed to use washer and dryer before heading home to PA and the lovely view of St. John's River. Definitely would stay again since we have family in nearby Fleming Island. Carolyn Barber

My friends and I went up to Jacksonville recently for a wedding. Not knowing anything about the city or the surrounding area made things a little harder. The staff was knowledgable and was very pleasant to speak with. Everything from the wedding, our rooms, bar, met my expectations and even exceeded them. I hope I can swing by again in the future and would recommend this place to anyone I come across.

I understand that with an older locale, some characteristics are to be expected, like wear and tear. However, when you stay at a B&B that has a classic feel, you still want to sense a level of cleanliness as well. This location has a musty smell in the rooms located in the main mansion. The floors, cushions, and other aspects of the room that need updating seemed to have almost a film of filth remaining from previous visitors. It was like staying at your great aunts home who doesn't have time to change the bed sheets anymore. We had fantastic service and the staff was more than accommodating. The actual sheets were clean, by the way. :) Still, we most likely will not return unless we stay at the more modern River Suites, which were more accommodating to our tastes. Overall, I would say, the mansion has great potential, and the beauty of the outside walls of the Club are enough to consider this place a diamond in the rough.

Being a wedding planner, I have high standards for hospitality and I had the pleasure of staying at Club Continental while coordinating a wedding there. I was very pleased when I noticed how above and beyond they go for their guests. Just a few examples: housekeeping came to check on the bride throughout the day without asking to check on her needs, they offer certain hours of hot items for their hot breakfast which were absolutely delicious & they all the staff was very attentive to all the wedding needs the entire afternoon and evening. I highly recommend Club Continental whether for a hotel stay or wedding!

I stayed at Club Continental a few days for my daughters wedding. The view was amazing and my room was beautiful. The day of the wedding I was only a few feet from the wedding venue which was more than I could ask for as I have an injured ankle. The gardens and courtyard were the perfect place for the wedding photos. The wedding was unforgettable and the food served at the reception was outstanding. Many of the guests commented to me on the venue and the food. Thank you for an absolutely memorable day.

A perfect place for a friends getaway. Eight couples met for our annual retreat. This historic resort is relaxing, beautiful and offers excellent services. We enjoyed excellent breakfast, dining, and closed the bar at the peer. The rooms are elegant and very comfortable. The surrounding grounds are secluded providing a sense of privacy. In a word, I would say “enchanting”.

We attended our daughters wedding at Club Continental. Very beautiful setting, nice rooms. Food was good. Area where gift table/ photo booth was horrible as it was right where guests were checking in and there are gifts & cards missing now. Venue should consider a locked box attached to wall for the bride & groom to use for cards.

We went here for our Son's wedding and it was very nice, clean, different and had all locations for all on site. Rehearsal Dinner, Wedding and Reception!!! All very Special for this Special occasion! I would recommend to anyone who'd like their Wedding to be outdoors and on water! Just Beautiful!!!

The customer service, the room, the grounds and the breakfast were outstanding. I stayed here 3 nights for a business trip and I didn't want to leave. It was very relaxing to drive onto the property after a busy day at work. It would also be perfect for a family gathering, girls' weekend or a romantic get-away. I can't wait to go back!

The water views were exceeded only by the old world elegance of the grounds. If you're in the area, well worth the stay.

What a great little spot. It's located where you least expect it and the view of the river is absolutely gorgeous. Being woken up by the sun beaming through your window is amazing. The rooms were very clean. The brunch was also pretty delicious although we didn't get an opportunity to try out the continental breakfast. Would definitely stay here again if we came up north again. It was so relaxing that it would be worth it just to come and sit on the balcony the whole time you're there.

We truly enjoyed our stay. There were weddings going on every night but we hardly noticed. We were in a River Suite which offers an exquisite balcony view of the St. Johns River, perfect sunrise, and lovely breeze through the room.

I stayed for one night in the Continental. I liked the room. I had a riversuite. A nice and spacious room. The shower in the bathroom could do with a renovation though. That was a cheap and dated thing. I arrived in the evening, the parking lot was very dark.You could hardly see anything. Breakfasttime is very limited. Only from 8 till 9. That s sufficient for people on a businesstrip but not for leisure. The breakfastmenu was ok. They served nice different things.

Knowing virtually nothing about the area, we were very pleasantly surprised about the Continental Club. From the "Old Florida Mansion" feeling in the front to the outstanding river view in the rear, we were just overwhelmed with our good fortune.

My Son and now daughter in-law pick the Club Continental and it proved to me as charming and as accommodating as promised. We were allowed to check in earlier than the 3:00 pm check in time and the staff were professional and friendly. I must mention the food it was outstanding and I will be returning at some future date.

I came to Club Continental for a wedding and was blown away by the beauty and grandeur of the venue. The staff was so accommodating and welcoming. The only con was the price of the room- seemed a bit steep, however, the view of the river made up for a lot. The food the day of the wedding was incredible but the weekend breakfast selection was lacking.

We stayed in a river suite and it was very luxurious! Everything was great. Only negative was dinner. Restaurant was lovely and some of the service was excellent but food was not that good and one of our dinners was extremely undercooked. Manager was very nice and apologetic, maybe just a bad night in the kitchen.

My hubby and I were traveling north from our cruise in Miami and stumbled upon this romantic inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a lovely River View room with a fabulous view. Then the next morning we had a wonderful breakfast in the lovely breakfast room overlooking the river. Terry - Avon OH

it was a big mistake to stay only one night - next time I´ll book for longer period. All the staff was courteous, not only the rooms have their warm and charming atmosphere - the entire building. With the spontaneous "late check" out I was even able to go for 9 holes - incl a few recommendations regarding the clubs nearby. THX so much for the time.

We stayed at this charming little B&B resort for our brief stay in Jacksonville. The grounds were kept up very nicely with landscaping, trees, fountains, and koi ponds. The room was nicely furnished and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The views along the St. Johns river were glowing with the sunrise. This was a very relaxing place to stay. We were a bit disappointed with the breakfast with a lack of healthy options. Mostly white breads and dessert pastries. They should let people know, especially those who are vegetarian that the egg dish has meat in it. I would still recommend this place and stay again if I were to return to the Jacksonville area. Most importantly the property provides a peaceful and relaxing night sleep.

The River Suite Rooms are peaceful, spacious, clean, and have great views. There is even a quaint little bar next door. We were in town for a funeral mass for my mother and had the luncheon meal at Club Continental. They were easy to work with scheduling the event. The food and the service was outstanding. The same is true for the breakfast. Your choice of cook to order or service off the buffet table. Clean and friendly. I will be coming back and let everyone know about it. Thanks for the great experience Club Continental!

My brothers and I booked a total of 4 rooms from Wednesday through Saturday last week. Members of our family gathered from across the US for a sad reunion- our mother's funeral. During this emotional time, the folks at the Club Continental couldn't have provided better service and quietly honored our privacy! It is truly a 5 star beautiful property hidden along the banks of the St. John's River- All services were perfect from our easy check-in to the delightful, spacious, and very comfortable river front suites. We enjoyed an excellent family dinner the evening we arrived. The varied menu included fresh seafood, beef, and chicken entrees. A good variety for the different tastes in our family! We also enjoyed full breakfasts cooked to order each morning. And, best of all, the staff prepared a lovely luncheon for our family of 17 in the semi-private area of the dining room after Mom's funeral. The setting was outstanding- a beautiful mansion with well kept, picturesque grounds. The spacious rooms were immaculate and the bed very comfortable. Each room had a private deck that overlooked the river. The staff were so helpful and knew who we were- In fact, my brother had air travel delays, arriving quite late, and the innkeeper gave me his key and told me to have him check in the next day! They were so respectful and, in their quiet way, made this part of our trip tension free and peaceful. We didn't worry about food, lodging, or where to relax together with our family and remember Mom. Our dad resides in Moosehaven, which is nearby. We will return whenever we visit Dad. THANK YOU to all who made our stay so comfortable. We will always sing your praises for making a sad time so special for us.

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful mansion. The room was comfortable and decor was awesome. The breakfast was included In price and quite tasty. We arrived to our room fairly late the 3 evenings we were there and the downstairs area/hotel personnel was not to be seen so I guess they go off duty at some time if you should need any late night assistance( we wanted some ice but didn't know where to find it-no soda machines either). The minor complaints were too few large towels in the rooms and we used all tissues in tissue box and box was not replenished. Altho the water temp was warm enough to shower I would have preferred hotter water. No way could the beautiful big tub be used because the water would have cooled very quickly with the cool weather we experienced in January. Like I said they were minor and not anything that would make me not come again. The venue is beautiful and you feel comfortable like you are staying in a big home

We wanted to do things a little different this New Years Eve. We wanted something unique and special yet didn't care to spoil the even with having to travel a distance. We found a diamond in the rough in Club Continental, right in our own backyard. Being Jacksonville residents, it was a short commute to what felt like being in another state with the old oaks and beautiful yet unique landscaping everywhere. Feeling removed from the big city is what we were after and this place delivered on that. The room was larger and more beautiful than we expected. The ease of the" flip-the-switch and it's on" fireplace was a hit with the chilly weather that was occurring. An awesome view of the expansive St Johns River gave that 'vacation away' kind of feeling. The grounds were quiet. You could see people taking pictures of nature's beauty all around. It felt like we were somewhere far away. The large jacuzzi tub was wonderful and we were amazed at the instant hot water when the faucet was turned on..... no gradual warm-up time as is the usual case when you turn hot water on. Even though it was New Year's Eve, quiet was still afforded for sleeping after midnight. Another pleasant surprise was the nice Continental Breakfast that was more than the typical one because the hostess would ask you for your particular eggs made to order. The room was clean, the king size bed very comfortable and quite honestly I don't remember us ever noticing anything to be disappointed about. Simply stated, it was a wonderful stay at a wonderful place. We highly recommend Club Continental as a get away even if you live in the area! We have every intention of returning in the future. Antonia & Joe from Jacksonville, FL

We would like for you to consider offering Breakfast after New Years Eve until 11 AM instead of from 7-9 AM It was a great New Years Eve but unfortunately we did not get to sleep until after midnight. This was our third year and we will do it again next year.

We were very disappointed. The place was very old and it had an odor like mold and too much cleaning solution in an attempt to cover it up. They were very nice and refunded us when we checked out early.

This is a place my family and I return to as often as we can. We feel like we have a little of the old south and the River view is the best and the surroundings are just so relaxing. Will be there again as soon as we can. If you want a place to stay for everything, this is it.

I stayed in Club Continental for 3 nights and I must say, I absolutely love the property! Pros: 1) Size: the room was VERY spacious! I stayed in suite 302, the website says it's designed for 2 people, but realistically, I think 4+ can stay there without a problem. 2) Cleanliness: the room was exceedingly clean. 3) Staff: The people who work in this hotel are extremely friendly and courteous. 4) Breakfast: Excellent food! Super delicious eggs for breakfast! They also served real juices. 5) For those who enjoy a drink or two, there’s no mini bar in the room, but there is a bar exclusive to residents of the nearby area and those staying in the hotel. It is actually very nice and there’s a beautiful deck that has a kind of pier connected to it. 6) Noise: It is a very quiet neighborhood and there was no noise coming from the outside whatsoever. 7) The view: We did stay in a suite, so the view is spectacular. St. John’s River is a beautiful river indeed! 8) Safe! We were from out of town and I wanted to stay in a place that was quiet and safe. This place is most definitely in a very nice and safe neighborhood. Cons: 1) The A/C unit had a sign that said not to lower the temperature below 72 degrees or the unit will freeze. Now, this may not be an issue for most people (including us), but I think people should be aware of this. 2) No on-site laundry room. This isn't usually a big deal for most people, but again, I think it should be mentioned. There is, however, a coin laundry less than a 2 minute drive away that opens at 7:30 AM. 3) I stayed in the 3rd floor of the suites building and it must be mentioned, there are no elevators in that building. I don't know about the main building, but there’s only a ramp that leads you up to the 2nd floor; if you stay on the 3rd floor, expect to carry all your luggage up a flight of steps. Overall, my family had a great experience. We definitely recommend this hotel!

The view from the balcony and the garden areas were breath taking. The room and bathroom were twice the size of a regular hotel room. There was a double vanity in the restroom!

My wife and I travel monthly to Orange Park to check in on her elderly parents. We have stayed in all of the chain hotels plus Club Continental, and Club Continental has become our permanent choice for lodging. The rooms are gracious and spacious -- I especially like the River Suites for their balconies right on the St. Johns, a lovely place for morning coffee, though the rooms in the Mansion all have individual charm. Breakfast is rather basic by B&B standards, but the setting is attractive and the coffee, fresh fruit, juices, cereals, and breads serve just fine. In all, highly recommended, and thoroughly unique for the area.

I absolutely love evrything about the Club Continental. Each room -- and I have stayed in several over the past year --- is so beautifully and uniquely appointed, it is difficult to choose a favorite! I do love waking up to the sunrise on the river. The grounds are beautiful and serene - perfect for relaxation! The service is warm, and quickly responsive. The dining room offers a varied and deicious menu in an elegant setting. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else--- unless they are completely booked -- so it is a good idea to plan ahead in order to not be disappointed.

Where do I begin?? We stayed upstairs in the Winterbourne Inn. It's a gorgeous Victorian home and is preserved immaculately. I walked in the room after check in to the fragrantly clean smell of fabuloso. Everything I needed to get ready was there. They truly thought of everything. From the mini fridge, to the old timey full length mirror, (excellent photo prop) down to the special hook over the door to photograph your wedding dress hanging on its own. The food was to die for! We even talked about becoming wedding crashers just to eat there! :-) The service was super friendly and had everything to do with the evening running smoothly and guests totally enjoying themselves. We are regular people, we have 5 children between the two of us, so price was an important factor. Winterbourne was very reasonable and worth so much more than they charge. We recommend it 100 times infinity!

This was a second visit to the Club Continental and was recommended by a relative that lives in Orange Park. Room was ok with great river views but located nearby is a River House Pub that can be a bit noisy and parking can be an issue on a busy night. I actually had my bumper on my Lexus scraped and no one took responsibility for it. We also went to brunch on Sunday and was told there was no room for us. I think guests should have the first opportunity and they did not suggest reservations in the book. All in all it is a very charming and beautiful spot but do not expect 5 star service.

Several of my family members stayed at the club continental to attend a wedding at the Winterbourne Inn next door. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. My boyfriend and I stayed in the Italian room which was nicer than I was expecting. The room contained a minifridge, coffee pot, additional fold up mattress, large closet, hair dryer and the bathroom was a nice size. The location on the river was beautiful, staff was courteous and the location was super convenient being directly next to the wedding venue. In addition, the continental breakfast was amazing; hot and cold buffet included every breakfast item I could think of and if you weren't satisfied with that there was a menu you could order from with additional options. I would definitely recommend this location, especially for a wedding venue if many of the guests are flying in from out of state.

We have stayed here several times after our wedding here over 30 years ago. We always are treated like special guests. The grounds are spectacular with huge oaks shading tropical folage.

We ordered dinner to have in our room so that we did not have to go out. Our dinner was delivered exactly on time and the food was beyond amazing! It was served at the perfect temperature (entree hot and salad & dessert cold) and the flavors were incredible! The Club Continental has the BEST food on the west side of the river!! We have decided that this is a MUST to do again!

The room was amazing. It had a large sauna tub, fireplace and California King bed! Right on the River with what looked to be a school of about 30 Manatee right in front of the balcony. the view from the top floor out over the 3 mile wide river made it seem as though we were looking at an ocean inlet vs. a river. The breakfast was also fantastic. It is at the old mansion and it still has all the charm you would expect from a historical site such as this... the staff were extremely nice. I talked to each one of them and they were genuinely interested, stopped to assist me and were anxious to serve us.. Just amazing. Can't wait to go back again. Been to most places around the world and you can't beat the charm, service, food and location of Club Continentals Suites. Top 10 places to stay in the world for me due to location and the aforementioned.

Lovely suite in a quaint, vintage building, very clean and totally upgraded. I had 5 star dining at the restaurant for lunch. I stayed in a ground floor suite-the patio opened to a magnificent view of the river. I felt as if I was floating on the river along with the manatees. My experience was meditative and extremely romantic. This is a vintage building with no elevators, with ramps and plenty of help. I was attending a wedding at the nearby mansion on the property. All the food was very YUMMY!.

We had our daughters wedding at this hotel in August 2014 and I cant stay enough about our visit. The old Florida charm really stands out. The staff and the service we provided was fantastic. If you can, I highly recommend the Club Continental. My wife and I honestly have stated even though we live close we will return for a long weekend. This location is tucked away and very quite along the river.

The room needed a little updating and a better clean job. The top part of the bed looked like it was going to fall on you. But the place was gorgeous. I would definitely stay there again!

Had to make a quick trip to Jacksonville, and needed a lodging that was pet friendly. The staff at North Florida Neurology suggested the Club Continental. Upon entering the property, I was absolutely delighted with the architecture and grounds of the resort. My river suite was huge, clean and tastefully furnished. I liked it so much that I wanted to stay another night, but sadly, it was booked solid. I highly recommend this lovely place. I didn't get to eat dinner in the dining room, since my companion only brought jeans and they are not permitted in the dining room. The continental breakfast, however, was attractive and varied. If I should ever visit Jacksonville again, I will try to stay here.

Stayed here 11 years ago and it's just as wonderful now as it was then. Def will stay again.

This is a MUST stay place. A gem in Jacksonville and worth the time and energy to discover it. If you are just considering a stay, go ahead and book the room(s) since you will not be disappointed.

I booked our 25th anniversary getaway at the club where we had our wedding reception. Couldn't be more happy. The people and food was excellent.
4.4 on June 19, 2014
I love history, so was very enchanted by the Club Continental. The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable. I want one of those “toppers”!!! There were only 2 minor negative things I experienced. One was that there was some clunking in the closet next to our room at about 5 am. Both my husband and I thought someone was knocking at our door. I guess this was housekeeping starting their day?? Also, the temperature of the water in the shower fluctuated.
4.4 on June 17, 2014
Beautiful grounds and place! Our room was old (as expected at a bed and breakfast mansion) but beautiful. Wish the fan worked and the tub drain was broken. Other than that, it was great and the employees were so very kind!!

My husband and I attended a wedding there and stayed the night over. The Italian Room was nicely decorated and very quiet and private. The club grounds are well kept and with a Southern appeal - Spanish moss hanging from the trees. You are right by the river - very romantic!

Location was great. The grounds were great!!!! The continental breakfast that was included was very nice. More than typical continental breakfast on Friday morning. They the rest of the weekend they had a hot casserole dish included. The bakery items were great! I would suggest staying in the newer building. We were in the Mexican room in the main building and wow, I wish I could have changed that. There were four weddings during the time we were there. They were all getting ready in the room next to us and then the reception was under us. It was not fun at all!!! The tavern that was next to the newer building was great but they do not serve food which was a let down. Most guests did not bring cloths for the club continental for dinner and that would have been a great option. But we went into Fleming Island to Hurricane's- great food and atmosphere. The rooms in the newer building are so worth it. Plenty of space and great for groups that want to pre and post party. The pool are was nice and clean. They have beach towels for you to use that you get from the front desk along with a pool pass. You actually share the pool with full time residents of the villas that are right next door. Most staff went above and beyond like 2 of the kitchen guys who carried our coolers up the stairs (yes no elevators) and yes I tipped them- which you should do. But the lady that was in charge of our room was more occupied with her family life then attending to our needs. I tipped her $10 as soon as we arrived and asked her to make sure she filled our ice bucket up when she came to the room. Yes I said I pre-tipped her and guess what- never did she have ice in our bucket. I had to ask the staff later in the day for ice. Most of the time they gave us a large bucket to help keep our coolers iced as well as ice for our drinks. Not sure what happened there. Oh well, but overall had a great weekend and got great pictures of the grounds.

This was a venue that exceeded our expectations in what was promised. Staff went beyond their job requirements to make our stay memorable. Wedding planning/coordination was the best I've seen.
4.8 on May 22, 2014
I came to the Jacksonville area for some R&R, as well as to reconnect with some old friends (graduated from high school there many years ago) - so I wanted a perfect spot on the water and found it at Club Continental. I loved my river suite with the private balcony, and appreciated the fact that the room was very sound proof. It is conveniently located, and very beautiful. I would highly recommend this place, and will certainly stay there again the next time I travel to Jax.
3.6 on May 22, 2014
The breakfast was disappointing on the weekends when the price of the stay actually goes up which does not make sense. The same breakfast entree was served Sat,Sun and Monday. This needs to be more creative. The staff in dining room was friendly and very attentive. The entree issue appears to be a management issue.
3.6 on May 19, 2014
Beautiful river view room that was clean and updated. Nicely accented decor that added the feel of a moderately priced room. The property grounds are maintained and pools are clean. Only drawback was the close proximity to the bar and it's noise. I definitely will return to this gem on the St John's river.
3.8 on May 19, 2014
I am very OCD so take this with a grain of salt but there are some areas that could be cleaned better such as the dusty chandolier in the main area and etc. But, againt that is just me.

My husband and I visited your resort this past weekend and loved everything. The mattress could use changing but overall everything was great. We had dinner in your dining room and the food and service was outstanding! The filet could have been cut with a knife and the chef prepared my husband a special plate at his request. The grounds were beautiful and the entire setting was peaceful. We will definitely return here!
5 on May 13, 2014
We were pleasantly surprised when we open the door to our room and it seemed more like an apartment! Not only that but our balcony was only three feet away from the St. John's river! The service was do welcoming and the private in just steps from our door was so convenient. Every one was so friendly and sincere. We now will only stay at The. Club Continental when we are in town!
5 on May 11, 2014
I had the best weekend ever here. I could not have imagined a more relaxing tranquil place. The staff was so pleasant and informative about the property and general area. I didn't want to come home. This is a new vacation spot for me. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. I love it......

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!!

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.
4.8 on March 06, 2014
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.

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.

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.

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.

Next morning, the breakfast was delicious and the waitress was friendly and prompt. Everything was perfect!

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.

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.

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

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.

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 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.

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!

I had my wedding recently at club continental and we stayed there on site for two nights. We thought that overall everything was very nice. The breakfast left little to be desired. Also there was a hair left in the bath tub and i hate that. Overall the experience was good though. The whole place is beautiful.

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!

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.

The staff, the ambiance, the food and the facilities were all perfect! They go out of their way to please and to ensure you have an enjoyable stay! I would go again in a heartbeat!

I had not been back to the Club in over 10 years and was impressed at how well everything had been maintained. I was a warm and friendly homecoming. Should I need to visit Jacksonville again the Club will be my first call for reservations.

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 were there for a beautiful wedding. Only stayed one night and wished we didn't have to leave. Wonderful view, liked the large suite on the river. Did not get to enjoy the continental breakfast because we had to leave for the Jags game.

My husband and I stayed over 9/7/13 for a wedding. I had never been to your place before and I LOVED IT!!! It was peaceful and serene! We plan on coming for a weekend sometime in the future! A stay-cation is just what we need!!! Thank You Tina Hubbard-Fete

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.

The club continental is a marvelous place to stay if you are in the Jacksonville area. The different cutural themed rooms add to the excitement and keep you on your toes. The view is outstanding and the landscape is to die for. Also the cute bar is very fun!

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.

Continental Suites remains my favorite romantic get away place. I started staying here in the mid 1990's and the quality hasn't changed.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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!
