4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for a few days to enjoy the beach and the local restaurants. The hotel is small, low key, and friendly. The staff are always downstairs and willing to help answer any questions you have. A 2 minute stroll and you are on the beach. Every room has a great view of the ocean and the beach, but... More

We loved our three nights on the beach. Great warmth and service in all respects. Breakfast was to notch. Room clean, quiet, spacious, w clear view of surf and sand. This is a little gem run by nice people. A real throwback.

The place is wonderfully located and the breakfast is so varied and delicious that I constantly looked forward to it. The hotel is located overlooking the ocean and the sounds from the waves rock you to sleep. This place is very comfortable and highly recommendable.

If you want to see St Augustine and also enjoy beach this area is awesome. This palce has tons of positives so I'll start with only two negatives we found. Parking can be challenging if you come back late. If you are from beach area you will find this quite expensive for a quick weekend stay. All included we were... More

- superb location directly on the ocean front - Very nice, clean and spacious rooms - breakfast was good (breakfast room is too small if more than six guests want to eat at the same time, which normally does not happen anyhow)

We stopped through St Augustine on a road trip and chose this hotel based on its location to the beach. I loved the room and the hotel. The only downfall is it does not have an elevator. Would love to come back and stay more than a night. It also was close to a grocery store and restaurants. Great location.

We trust Tripadvisor when choosing hotels. The reviews were right on. I booked this room a month before we arrived. The mistake I made was not taking the corner top floor room with extra windows that was offered as I was worried being by the stairs, it would be noisy. Noise was not a problem here. If you can manage... More

This was not our first stay at The St. Augustine Beach House, but it's such a wonderful place, it's worthy of another review. Let's begin with the room. Of course the higher up you go, the better the view. The only thing that separates you from the Atlantic, is a narrow piece of dune, and Vilano Beach. This is as... More

Wow, this place is exactly as advertised. It has that real homey, funky, beachy feel. Check in was great, easy, fast. As soon as I walked into the room I knew I picked the right place. The ocean is so in your face it's unbelievable. We kept our sliding doors open the ENTIRE time. We could hear the waves and... More

I was thrilled to be staying in this dog-friendly hotel with beach-access. I made my reservation approx 2 weeks prior using the hotel's website. I received two emails - 1 that the reservation was pending and another to confirm the reservation and a room on the 1st floor. Can you imagine driving all the way from Canada with a tired... More

We can certainly appreciate your frustration, and it is still a mystery to us how your reservation was cancelled, as typically only a guest request will initiate a cancellation process. Mistakes do happen, and we always try hard to resolve challenges as best we can. Our front desk staff was sincere in their efforts to provide alternative solutions and we... More
