This is a great place if you want easy beach access and a view of the ocean. A couple of hundred yards from the water of Vilano Beach and just outside the beach access gate. Not elegant, but clean and very friendly. We would definitely come back.

We stayed five nights. The room was very nice, the bed was sooo comfortable. Room was cleaned everyday, fresh towels every day. The staff really makes this one of the best places to stay. Because it only has 16 rooms, they are able to give each guest personal attention and service. They offered to help take our luggage to the... More

We recently stayed for several days at the St. Augusting Beach House. We payed extra to stay on the 3rd floor but soon found out that probably wasn't the best idea. There is NO ELEVATOR at this hotel. We had to carry our luggage up and down. Also, we had to contend with several bugs in our room. We had... More

We are truly sorry you were not aware that The Beach House does not have an elevator. We do try to move folks to other floors if there are concerns about the stairs - but that is not always possible. We also try to offer to help with bags, and we apologize that you did not receive this assistance. We're... More

After reading reviews of Saint Augustine Hotels we decided to stay at SABH. We were not disappointed with our choice. When we arrived my wife immediately loved the quaint appearance.

We stayed at SABH for two nights recently. The room was large, pretty, very clean. The furnishings are nice. The wifi worked great. The view, even on the ground floor, was gorgeous. It was very quiet. The staff are all super-nice and friendly and helpful. The little deck was private and the railing was safe for dogs. Although there were... More

We went to St. Augustine for the Alan Jackson concert on May 17 and were only able to stay one night but really wanted to stay on the beach.

Clean. Main thing this place is clean. And they allow pets! But there are NO pet smells, no air freshener is sprayed to make me "think" it's clean, i mean they really truly take care of this place kind of cleaning.
