A friend and I stayed here during the Blue Crab Festival Memorial Day Weekend. The room was a little more expensive than normal due to the holiday weekend. Reservations were great. I asked for a ground floor room with a river view and that is exactly what we got. We stayed for 3 nights. Check-In was a breeze. The first... More

Pleasant enough but needs attention. Really wouldn't be a big deal to do one room at a time. The view is gorgeous! Would probably rent alot more rooms if this place was spruced up. The location wasn't bad as we were visiting St. Augustine. The world of Golf was fantastic!

We stayed there during a busy weekend and the service was great. We had a river view room on the second floor near the pool. There were some loud intoxicated people near the pool around 5:30 am; however, the front desk person did a great job handling the situation quickly when I called. This hotel is in walking distance from... More
