The dog-friendly cost effective points drove us to Southern Oaks and once we got there we found everything to be very nice, very clean room and superior surroundings. The pool is huge and inviting, the dog run is beautiful under the sprawling oaks. Our room had a nice size fridge and microwave and included a free breakfast every morning. We... More

My wife and I have stayed here three times in the past year. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is courteous and helpful. I was a little dissatisfied our last visit for two reasons. 1) They used to have a really good breakfast buffet but they are now converting to a restaurant format. The food was practically... More

Pros- spacious clean room with king bed, sofa, dining table & chairs, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, iron, hairdryer, TV. Floors are hardwood, bed comfy, really like the dispensers for soap & shampoo. So much better than the tiny bottles and better for the environment.  Can park directly in front of your room, so unloading very convienent. Free breakfast was much... More

We are Floridians, and visit St. Augustine often. We usually stay at Palm Coast and do daily drives to St. Augustine but decided to stay closer to the Historic area this time. We read the reviews on Trip Advisor and found good feedback for Southern Oaks Inn, so we tried it. I would stay here again because the price is... More

We've stayed here 3 times now and have not been disappointing. It's very reasonably priced and the rooms are clean and comfortable. They have free breakfast which is a cut above the typical continental style with eggs, bacon & sausage with rotating items available on different days. It's also pet friendly. We didn't have a pet but for those who... More

Enjoyed three night stay. Beds were comfy. Breakfast was good, would have liked some fresh fruit (apples,bananas,or oranges). Only issue was the first night there we were told pool closed early shortly after 8 and our last night there were people still in pool after 9. The lady at front desk (from Wisconsin) was very helpful in getting us a... More

The room was clean and the property was nice. There was a large room for breakfast, so it wasn't congested like most places. The breakfast had several hot choices and other items. They also had several people working the breakfast so items stayed fresh.

Southern Oaks Inn was a very pleasant surprise . I have stayed in other supposedly dog friendly hotels and have been very disappointed. Southern oaks was very clean. Hardwood floors . No smelly carpet. The rooms seem to be somewhat sound proof so it is very quiet with having so many pets there. They have a dog run. Nice pool... More
