We had a nice and cozy room. Very comfortable except for the bathroom, there is no exhaust fan, which made it extremely hot to use it. My husband noticed the toilet didn't seem clean and mold was growing around the tub. On the top floor we couldn't find the ice machine and trying to call the front desk with the... More

Took a risk and was pleased to find a clean and comfortable hotel. Pool area was great, right off the road to the main attractions. The place looks like it was recently renovated. The staff very helpful and friendly.

Let me start with the positives...great location, close to downtown St Augustine (within 1 mile of Castillo De San Marco). The staff is beyond friendly and welcoming and do go above and beyond which literally compensates for your stay here since they're so genuinely sweet. Negatives: The room was not up to par at all. Stain from a leaky roof,... More

Do yourself a favor and don't waste your money here... 150 bucks for a room that is 10 feet from train tracks, I can deal with that. However, when we went to put some drinks in the fridge, the fridge smelled... Funny to say the least. We plugged it in (because it wasn't plugged in when we arrived) and realized... More

Very good room & service. Management is friendly and the view of the little water was very pretty. The bathroom was a little dirty. The bed(s) were nice and the pillows were soft. The lobby had free breakfast and DVD rentals. The pool was great also!

The front desk and breakfast staff was great. The housekeeping staff not so good. We arrived late in the afternoon after a drive from Gatlinburg. When it was time to go to bed, we noticed that the sheets were dirty. This is the first time that this has happened to use. I slept completely dressed that night. In the morning... More

I escape regularly about an hour away to St. Augustine. I usually travel alone and stay in a hostel where it is quick and easy to find an adventurous friend to see the city and I feel safe enough to do it alone. I took a sick friend with me this time and was shocked by how expensive the hotel... More

This was a reasonable stopover although wouldn't want to stay there too long. The staff were pleasant and the best part of the stay was the breakfast, although self service was plentiful with several choices.
