5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My husband and i had mini-staycation honeymoon here. The room was awesome, especially with the jacuzzi tub. Cleanliness a plus and very friendly staff. The location was convenient, close to St. Augustine shops and restaurants as well as the bridge where my husband and I like to fish . We will definitely go again!

Convenient to St. Augustine and Caps Restaurant nearby. Hallways were in great need of vacuum, especially staircase. Make sure you ask for a room facing the ocean, I think those rooms might be better. Paid way tooo much through AARP/disappointing. Free breakfast in tiny room was goofy. Why not serve at the pool area which looked very nice and overlooked... More

I loved, loved, LOVED this place. Second floor ocean side. 24 hours of hot fresh coffee! No, I didn't put a thing in it when we took our late night walk on the beach (; because that would be illegal. Yes, I did feel safe walking on the beach after dark. Nice clean, well maintained, quaint older hotel. The staff... More

Our trip to St. Augustine was our second. We love the area. Our stay was around the Easter holiday. The hotel's location is very quiet and right on the beach. We had beautiful sun rises. The building itself is beautiful, clean and well kept.The staff was very nice, hospitable and informative. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The room... More

Let's start with the bad stuff: 1) The pool is smaller than it looks in the pictures and it's in the middle of the parking lot which makes it kinda awkward in my opinion. 2) You have to cross the street to get to the beach and it's a busy road. Lucky we found a gap in traffic both times... More

The pictures were really nice and so were many of the reviews. However, I travel, A LOT! So it wasn't up to standard for me. Please note that this is by a very busy highway. It made me nervous as we had small children with us. I thought you would be able to hear the waves (but you hear more... More

The location is perfect. Directly across the street from the beach and ocean in a quiet beach neighborhood. The views up and down the beach were amazing. The hotel was very clean and well kept. The rooms are a nice size with all the amenities. The service was wonderful. Debbie at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating. A... More

Our stay was fantasic. The rooms are small but the bathtub/shower was great. They have a large bathtub in the rooms with a shower & the bathtub has jets. The beds are a bit too firm. But overall the hotel was clean, and staff was friendly. Its right across the street from the beach with private access and that was... More

I was very happy to see that you had a nice stay while visiting our little hotel. I do apologize that you didn't get the room you requested, but it sounds like you were able to stay in one of our jacuzzi tub rooms and those are usually reserved as an upgrade. I hope the jacuzzi room met your expectations... More
