The Ocean Center is very clean and has an easy layout. Staff was friendly and restrooms remained clean all day. The bleacher seats are older and not the most comfortable, but do have backs.

Yes, nice facilities and attentive friendly staff. I spent two weeks there in a course and every day, morning,afternoon and evening, the security gave us a smile and supportive good morning, good night hello.

Ocean Center parking lot is always my favorite during Bike Week. Motorcycles as far as the eye can see. Great spot for a photo. This year as a bonus.. There was a Lamborghini Diablo parked with the bikes. My lottery car! Ocean Center is also a great concert venue. I've been going to concerts here for over 20 years and... More

Spent two weeks working at the Trampoline World Championships, held at the Ocean Center in November 2014. A great venue for the event, with friendly staff. Food service was limited to one concession, with a limited range of items though.

The attendants are FRIENDLY! Really, the people who work AT the convention center are interested and friendly. Plenty of easily accessable restrooms. Parking = $5 for events and is across the street in a parking garage.

The food was extremely overly priced. The free wifi was horrible. Although I was able to connect with no challenges, it was either extremely slow or it wouldn't connect to the outside at all. Inside the Convention Rooms, it wouldn't work at all.

The place is big, but the folks working the venue are all over it. They know just where you need to go. The seats get a little uncomfortable after an hour, but that is life.

When you walk or drive by the Ocean Centre, be sure to have your camera ready to take a shot of the Chistmas lights outside the Centre. If you have your St Augustine disposable glasses for their display of lights pop them on and doubly enjoy the spectacle. It is very tastefully done.

We attended the Reptile Breeder's Expo this year and found the center to be clean, well maintained and the event itself was awesome. The only suggestion I would have is more signage outside of the building. We parked in the parking garage and proceeded to walk around almost the entire building before seeing a small sign showing the proper entrance.... More

Great venue! We recently visited for the National Reptile Breeders Expo and the place is beautiful. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I will be looking into more events they are hosting in the future.
