We've stayed at this same hotel for years. It is easy walking distance to everything. It was recently purchased by Best Western. We noticed the lobby was spiffed up and the rooms appeared updated. Even the bathrooms looked as though they had new hardware installed. Two weeks ago, we went for the Nights of Lights and my birthday. (hint: get... More

This is an older facility that could use some updates but the location made up for the smaller room. We visited during the Nights of Lights celebration and had a wonderful two day stay. Shops, resturants and bars are just outside your door. If you want to travel further out of town, jump on the trolley just a block away.

We picked this motel for The location and we were not disappointed. We could easily walk everywhere in old town and along the bay front I especially liked the hardwood floor instead of carpet in the room also the bed was very comfortable. My problem with the motel was that there were restaurants and bars behind it that were very... More

Although this Best Western does not have free breakfast, it is a great hotel. Super Clean, right on the Bay. The pool is really nice and there is a huge upstairs patio for hanging out and people watching, We always stay here when visiting St Augustine

The location of this hotel is magnificent. You are literally right in the center of the action of Old Town St Augustine. The catch is that you are right in the center of the action of Old Town St Augustine. Stogie's Cigar and Jazz Bar is across Charlotte St (a wide alley really) from the back wall of the hotel....

The hotel is in the heart of the town, perfect location with nice amenities, but the Stogies bar out back needs to shut down at 1am not 2:30. The later the night goes the louder they get which makes it hard to sleep. Besides that, it was a nicer than the average motel up the road. Everything is walking distance... More

Overpriced. You are paying for location. The room was dirty, noisy and extremely outdated. We had to switch rooms because the first room was next to a bar and we never got an ounce of sleep. The bathroom floor was filthy with dirt and the whole room itself smelled like urine. I would never stay there again!

Best Western is a great place to stay. St Augustine however, has many weekend events throughout the year. When traveling to the area, plan for an expensive hotel bill. It is the norm for Hotels in the historic district to over price. If one were to disregard the cost, the hotel is in a great location and is the jump... More

Stayed here in early December 2014 while passing through. The location is terrific - walk anywhere. The room itself was dated, definitely could use some attention, but we were comfortable and it seemed cleaned. We ate breakfast at "Mary's" right next to the motel. Nothing special. Would we stay there again, probably, but only because the location is optimal.
