So let me start with the positive....walking distance to the beach but even so, the negatives far outweigh the one positive! On our drive to St. Augustine Beach House to register and get our keys (we found that out by a sign on the door at the Vilano) we had passed an abandoned motel where it was obvious that homeless...

Had fire alarms go off at 7am with police and fire respond but no staff respond. I had to call office 3 blocks away at other hotel for police officer who requested was told...

Very old and outdated. Terrazzo Floors were cold in the middle of the night! There was no space to put anything in the bathroom. We put new batteries in the remote, bought toilet tissue, it was just so disappointing compared to the beach house owned by the same people. On the bright side...it was clean.

Stayed here while moving house with my cat - they do charge for pets which is perfectly fine and understandable - they normally take dogs, but had the cat and they were perfectly hospitable regardless. The check in for the Garden inn is at another building/hotel on Vilano Beach proper, this might seem strange, but it means that the Garden...

My wife and I loved this place. The room was cozy and clean. The bed was comfy and overall the room had a homey feel to it. Also the location is great. It is walking distance from the beach and only about 15 minutes from historic Saint Augustine. The only other comment I can make is that check in is...

I travelled to saint Augustin on my bday and I booked that hotel. It is pretty close to the beach and the room is nice, look like your own home. The room is quite and clean and I love it. The only thing is I believe this property share the front desk with another hotel which is 2 blocks away....

Great location, the hotel is cute and quiet, reminds me of an old roadside motel. Recently remodeled, very clean, but somewhat sparse (no dresser, just one nightstand, window unit a/c is louder than normal hotel a/c. Biggest drawback is: No Pool! We will stay again in the cooler months, it's a great little hideaway, if you aren't looking for 5...

Thank you so much for your comments. We are exactly as you said- a vintage Florida motor court true to the old roadside style. We will definitely take your suggestions to heart and look to expand the furnishings a bit. The pool is hopefully farther out in the future... a 'wish list' item. We will hope to see you again...

We love St. Augustine and visit often. This was the first time we visited Vilano Beach, and we fell in love with this charming community and the Garden Inn. Our room and bath had been recently rennovated, and it had all the needed amenities for a beach hotel. We loved being able to park at the hotel and walk to...

A great location to get to the beach and for pets. A quick drive to San Marcos drive to see all of the sights. My dog loved the little dog play area at the Garden Inn. A quaint spot even though the main hotel is down the road. Eve at the front desk was very helpful. Wish breakfast was included.

Thank you for your very nice comments about our Garden Inn. We believe it is truly important that guests experience a clean, fresh room, so our housekeepers work hard on the details. The Inn is just a short walk to the beach, the pier, restaurants and shops, so it is a convenient location. We look forward to seeing you again...
