The owners of this hotel are very nice, and that's the reason I've been back numerous times, they make you feel welcome. The place is clean and comfortable and the rooms have a fridge and microwave. Where it is, it's convenient to the beach and to town. While its just a basic room, I feel safe there.

Although front desk was nice enough, the room was a complete and utter dump. For one thing, you couldn't walk from the bed to the bathroom without your feet becoming solid black from all of the dirt in the carpet. The bed, including the boxspring, was falling apart.The quality of the water there appeared to be very bad, so much...

Because 1 star is just too generous for this pit. The first thing I noticed upon walking into my room was the lack of adequate lighting. The corner lamp and the wall bracket above the fridge turned on but there were no lamps to be found for the lights above the beds. At first I was annoyed but I soon...

When I pulled back the covers there were huge stains, like some one had polished their shoes with the sheets. I called and she said they were rust stains. They don't have water softeners in St. Augustine? In the morning I noticed a hole in the back of the bathroom door and the wood on the bottom of the door...

I am sitting at my computer in the middle of the night as I am writing this review because I cannot sleep. First night I arrived was ok: I was well received by the staff (nick) who ensured me that rooms were extra clean. I noticed the day after the rotten window and molespots in the bathrooms. Towels were so...

I have read the reviews (good and bad), before my children and I went on vacay, but we are on a budget so I thought I would check it out anyway. The first thing I did was ask to see the room, before I signed in or paid.. The desk person was extremely gracious, and showed me a room that...

We went to St. Augustine because I was an Officiant for a wedding. We only needed someplace for one night and didn't want to spend a fortune. I came across this hotel online and it was the closest to the wedding and the cheapest I could find. Let me start with the owners of the property. Wonderful people!!! They went...

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway. The rooms are about 50% larger than typical hotel rooms. The beds were doubles, rather than queens which they were advertised as being. At first, we thought the beds would be too hard, but we slept soundly all night. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The office (staffed all night) has...
