This has been the second visit we have made to the Garden Inn and it has lived up to and surpassed our expectations. While the rooms are furnished in keeping with the retro style they are spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast, provided at the Beach Hotel, is fresh and has a range of items that are tasty and satisfying.... More

Nice, romantic, secluded Inn, renovated, very clean, dog friendly. Small town feel. First time here will be back. Less than five minutes from downtown Saint Augustine. On the right three minute walk to the beach. On the left three minute walk to the pier, dog friendly restaurants near by.

When we pulled up we all kind of had second thoughts. But we said lets go in and see what it looks like before we judge it from the outside. It was nice inside. It had been recently updated. The beds were nice and comfortable. Much to our surprise it was 2 rooms in 1 with 2 full bathrooms, so... More

We checked in the evening of the 25th with 3 dogs. We originally wanted to stay at their sister hotel the St. Augustine Beach House, but this was a spur of the moment getaway and they were booked full. The staff was very accomodating finding us a room at the Vilano Beach Garden Inn. We quickly got over our disappointment.... More

Great little gem that was a great value! First off, we have a dog that falls into the " Violent breed" category. Yes our dog is a VERY large Rottweiler but he has been socialized since he was a puppy. This is very important because it can aid in the dogs temperament and can avoid aggression as he matures.

We stayed at the Garden Inn 2 weeks ago, and we already made reservations for another stay in 5 weeks. Our stay there was a very pleasant experience. Not only did we enjoy it, but our pets felt comfortable and safe and had a great time as well. Our pets especially enjoyed the fenced-in grassy area. You are in walking... More

My husband and I recently stayed here with our dog. It was absolutely perfect. We greatly enjoyed the quiet street it was located on, and were much happier than we would've been had we stayed in the heart of St. Augustine. The pet friendly beach nearby was an especially nice bonus, and the breakfast down the street at the St.... More

We enjoyed our stay at this delightful hotel. Our room was spotless, the bed comfy, staff extremely friendly and helpful, location excellent. A quiet getaway close to everything. Full hot breakfast at the sister hotel on the water down the road. Will definitely stay here again!

I loved our stay here -- not luxury accommodations but very comfortable. A great place to stay with your dog(s). Our girls loved it here. The Manager even brought them their own box of dog biscuits. Very nice fenced dog yard. You are 2 blocks from the marina and 2 blocks from the ocean, Publix almost across the street, walking... More

Thank you so much for your comments. We do welcome pets at The Garden Inn and give them plenty of space to roam on the grounds. We agree - the location is great just blocks from the beach and from the fishing pier - and an easy walk to the supermarket and restaurants!! Please do plan to return soon -... More

The inn is an older strip motel. They seem to be working to upgrade it. The floors are all terazzo, no rugs. The bathroom is painfully small with no fan. It is a very short walk to the pet friendly beach, exactly 3 restaurants and a Chinese take-out, a Publix, and just a few miles ride to old St. Augustine.... More

Thank you for your comments and suggestions. The Garden Inn is definitely retro-Florida motor court style in a quiet beach community, which as you say, does not appeal to all tastes. A full renovation of the Inn and the furnishings is complete and the terrazzo floors are refinished original. We are trying to hold rates down, so staffing the 7-room... More
