I found this to be a great place to stay. The location is convenient to walking to all local sights with the possible exception of the Fountain of Youth and of course, the Lighthouse. I hit the Fountain of Youth on my way into town then went to the motel, parked the car and walked to all the other sights....

We stayed here whilst major renovations wee going on. Staff and workers were very respectful and considerate so it was no problem. The newly renovated rooms are very nice. Location is in the Old Quarter and perfect for strolling and exploring.

We shopped around for a good location and fair price - stumbled upon the Marion. So glad we did. Location is perfect. Steps to Old St. Augustine Village and Cathedral. Inexpensive. Free parking and free wifi. Friendly staff. Our renovated room was on the second floor facing the City Marina / outdoor pool. Beautiful job with the renovations. Modern room...

This is not fancy from the outside (at all), but all the rooms either have been or are in the process of being completely remodeled. Everything was clean and new in our room. The price was more than reasonable for the accommodations we received. My guess is once the rooms are finished, they will update the exterior. The hotel is...

We travel to St.Augustine quite a bit for a weekend get away.. we have stayed at several hotels in the area...Location is very important to us.. I was a little hesitant booking this place due to previous reviews.. Impressed is a understatement! They have completely remodeled the rooms , beautiful pavers put in and they are working on the outside!...

I took my mother on a trip to Saint Augustine, and we're both pretty laid back in regards to where we stay, however location was important to me, and this place is right across from the water, with the Galleon docked right outside the window. We walked to the fort, Crucial Coffee, St. George street before we even checked in....

A very nice welcome and such a lovely Family atmosphere. We were allowed to view a couple of rooms before making a choice which was really helpful. Maya & Mak were wonderful hosts and were always there if you needed anything. We'll definitely be staying there again!

I have to say my wife and I were very impressed with the remodel. Our room wasn't 100% done but it was only missing a few touches. We weren't expecting it to be as nice. Love the tile and the bedding. Bathroom was beautiful. Think they should change the name because motel doesn't give it justice. I do think they...
