My wife and I have traveled to many different places, but this spot will stand out as one we will want to return to whenever we need a getaway. Being this close to the beach, you can sit on your balcony and hear the waves crash all night. Watching the sun rise in those same seats is quite a pleasure,... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review - we truly appreciate the compliments and are very happy to know your stay with us was a good experience for you. The sunrises over the ocean are truly amazing to see - but we agree - you can be easily tempted by the smell of fresh baking coming from the kitchen... More

I have a high stress position and when I need a getaway to regroup I head to SABH. I took my sister there over the weekend and we both are plotting our next escape to rest and relaxation. The staff is so accommodating and view is wonderful. We walked the beach and slept with the sound of the waves. Everything... More

This was our first stay here. Our weekend trip was planned last minute so we weren't able to get a 2nd or 3rd floor room. We thought we would be disappointed but the room was very nice on the first floor and had a great view. We were nervous about bringing our 45 lb dog as some hotels prefer small... More

This was our second stay at SABH. As with our first stay, our room was clean, bed was comfy and staff was exceptional. We love that such a nice place is so dog friendly.

My wife and I live nearby and come to the St. Augustine Beach House for a refreshing retreat. The rooms open onto the beach and are clean, modern, and spacious. I like especially the small balcony that opens out to the beach. This stay we were treated to scrumptious breakfasts both days that are part of the room rate. The... More

We just spent 3 perfect days at the St Augustine Beach House. We would and do recommend this place to everyone. The location is perfect, right on the beach.

We stayed 9/16/14-9/19/14 (check in on Tues/left on a Fri). Let me start out by saying, they are very accommodating. We stayed in room 106 (by choice), they say the views from the 2nd and 3rd floors are better and that is probably true, we had the views of the dunes then water, no beach (we knew that going in)....

This is a definitely a dog friendly hotel. Unfortunately I did not bring my dogs, I brought my human family. The rooms are small and the floors are all made from easy to clean up the animal mess and keep the fleas out materials. They do not smell like animals.

We appreciate your comments and value your input. While we are a pet friendly hotel, we take pride in ensuring the rooms are thoroughly cleaned and are welcoming for our 'human' guests - and ceramic tile flooring does help make a difference! We try to be family-friendly as well, and we hope you will return to stay with us again... More

This little hotel is kind of a combination motel / B&B. I agree with the other "average" reviews that it's pretty basic and yes, a bit on the shabby side. Rooms are very small and showing their age, and the furnishings are worn. Bathroom is very small with little ventilation. Kitchenette is very basic - small fridge, microwave, countertop and... More

Thank you for your comments, and we appreciate your input. As a small, independent hotel, we take great pride in investing consistently in property upgrades and just completed installing new glass patio sliders and windows. Our furnishings are fairly new, but salt air does take a toll and we will be looking at individual guest rooms to replace anything that... More
