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

We came across the Marion Motor Lodge when we visited St. Augustine on our way to Florida from Savannah. It's ideally located, facing the inter-coastal waterway, in the heart of the town centre. The free parking is a bonus, as St.Augustine is best appreciated on foot, and though we only stayed one night, Hank (who's a real character!) let us... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Marion several times. I would probably rate it as comparable to a Motel 6. It's more expensive, but that's because it is in the heart of the historic district with everything within walking distance. And while more expensive than a typical discount hotel, it is much cheaper than some of the higher... More

While the price is lower and the location with a view near town center and free parking is a plus, there were serious drawbacks which convinced me to not stay here again. While the room looked clean, upon inspection there was dirt behind and under the TV and the bed. The three lamps and shades (still porting their cellophane wrappers)... More

Last few times we have went to St Augustine, we have stayed here, and as long as you know this is a older motel, and its only that, you will be ok, its the lowest priced place to stay on the bay in the old city, due to bestwestern buying Monterey Inn, and now the prices there are crazy high,...

Check-In: The manager was very nice. She allowed us to stay parked in the lot before check-in and after check-out, saving us from having to pay for parking downtown. Lodging: Outdated but clean rooms. Good for crashing at night after touring the city. Location: Incredibly close to the best parts of St. Augustine. Walking distance to historic sites and restaurants.... More

Marion Motor Lodge offers so many pluses you'll want to stay there again. I certainly plan to return with my family! That said, you need to know that this 1950's style motor lodge (gotta love it for the nostalgic name alone!) has probably not been updated since the 1980's. If you are looking for historic elegance, this place is not... More

This is a great place to stay if you're looking to be right downtown in St. Augustine. The staff is polite. Rooms are simple but clean and have a mini-fridge which I like. There is a nice community deck to relax on and enjoy the bay view. I'd stay again.
