The location is as good as it gets being right by the marina and within walking distance of everything in St Augustine. Staff was friendly as well. If you want to be frugal and just have a place to sleep and feel safe while you explore the town during the day, the Motorlodge fits the mold. If you want more... More

The staff were very rude, rushed you out. Rooms are not cleaned properly when occupants leave. Bath tub is black, not good for small children. Carpet is filthy & if you made the mistake of looking under the bed... Good luck. Globs of dust and hair that are older than myself (30). I'm not sure the sheets are changed either...... More

I had never been to St. Augustine and wasn't exactly sure what to expect but the Marion Motor Lodge was an amazing surprise. Like most people going on a trip I may have passed this gem by simply because it didn't have the most up-to-date exterior and that would have been a huge mistake! The location is perfectly situated in... More

This place is due for renovations. The room was clean, but smelled musky. The decor is stuck on the 70s. Location however, is spot on. Within walking distance from all attractions. Staff is friendly and helpful. If it wasn't for the location, I would have given it less stars. I didn't mind the place, but my wife did not enjoy... More

I hate to write a good review of this hotel due to the fear of being booked when I want to go back. the room was clean, the location is one of the best in St. Augustine. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The water pressure in the shower alone is worth going back for. The... More

The location is so great, we'd put up with some negatives -- but, no negatives presented themselves. Yes, the place has been around for a while. But, the bed was clean and comfortable; the bathroom excellent. We enjoyed staying there very much and would recommend it to anyone who wants a clean safe place to stay. The Ritz is down... More

Hotel hell! Hotel impossible.. someone rescue them.. great location. Nasty hotel. Lobby smelled of decades of cigarettes. TV from 1980. Cluttered dirty. Weeds overgrown on lot and plastic patio chairs filthy. But we had no other option so we checked in. Doubled the rate for n.y.e. to $188. NO MAID SERVICE for that rate. Did get clean towels left on... More

Unless you are desperate, find another place! Pay the extra money and stay somewhere else. If you are not picky about old bed covers and carpet, then give it a try. Otherwise, pass it up. A bad experinece for us and we ended up leaving at 11 pm to find a place that we could sleep comfortably. St Augustine is... More

Trust me when I tell you that you will walk into your room and Wish you stayed someplace else! Yes it's probably one of the least expensive places to stay, but it's a MOTEL, you know, like the kind of place that has a 3 hour rate! (not saying they do), but for another 40.00 you could stay at the... More

After having a bad experience at a different hotel the night before we were happy that we found this place instead of having to go home. It was Easter weekend and rooms were scarce. As my husband and I were sightseeing in the historic downtown, we noticed Marion's. We decided to stop in and inquire if they had a room.... More
