I would recommend this place to anyone. The room was excellent, the staff super friendly and the location perfect. It's small, but with spacious rooms and the beach was beautiful. We can't wait to go back!

I just returned home from a delightful stay 4/8/2013-4/13/2013 at The St. Augustine Beach House on Vilano Beach, St, Augustine, Florida. My companion Mickey (my mini dachshund) and I couldn't have been happier.

Just returned from a wonderful 4 day vacation. The hotel itself is perfectly located .... right on the beach, 1/2 block away from the grocery store, and a short drive into historic St Augustine.

I found this hotel on the dogfriendly.com website and although I hadn't necessarily been looking for an oceanfront property, the great reviews and price convinced me to give it a try. When we drove up, I thought it reminded me of the kinds of places I used to stay in Ocean City, MD back in the 80's, and I expected... More

Writing ambivalent reviews are much harder than describing a wonderful or awful experience! We wanted to like this place, but for the price it is lacking in comfort, style, and charm. After reading all of the reviews we were prepared for a great place. This is what we found: an older mom and pop hotel that has been patched up... More
