Great staff and Location. Coffee in lobby 24/7 (wife loved this) Nice sized room with everything you need including free wifi. Big shower. Definitely worth the price! Telling me I need 200 characters to submit so it is

We visited St Augustine for 3 nights. The first 2 nights we stayed in the heart of the historic district and then moved to the beach. The hotel and the rooms are decorated reminicient to its Spanish heritage. The rooms were exceptionally clean, large, and decorated with quality furniture and bed coverings. We had dinner at the restaurant and thought... More

We feel so fortunate to find this wonderful hotel. The rooms are clean and well kept. Spacious and 3rd floor rooms have a huge spa tub. There is a nice dressing are and bathroom with a large walk in shower. The room darkening shades are fabulous. You think it is in the middle of the night and it might actually... More

Great stay at Castillo Real in St Augustine last July! The staff was very friendly and helpful. My only two disappointments were: 1. Breakfast was not included. Every Choice Hotel that I have stayed in so far has provided breakfast. We were not informed of this until we arrived at the hotel. 2. We were told the hotel was ocean... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in early September of 2014. Amenities The staff was friendly. The room was very nice. The wifi was fast and free. The pool is somewhat small, but deep enough in one end to get you wet. The whirlpool hot tub was great for my aching muscles. Towels were available pool side in a... More

Spent 2 nights and loved the decor, cleanliness, friendly staff..in every area. Coffee available in room or in lobby (24) free. Breakfast is not free, but was very tasty. On the beach, so you have to drive to old town but we'd stay there again.

Was really uncertain when I booked this through hot wire. Never heard of it. But we got a fantastic deal. I was very pleased upon arrival. Customer service was fantastic. Rooms were very spacious and clean. And you are very close to the beach, which was fantastic. It was the offseason so the price and atmosphere may differ at other... More

The Castillo Real is a nice hotel close to the beach in Saint Augustine Beach. It has spacious and clean rooms and clean bathrooms. There is a good restaurant and a small gym, a swimming pool, sauna and steam room. The staff at reception was friendly and helpful. There is free Wi-Fi and parking. For breakfast you can get a...

Will de d, We are glad that overall you seemed to enjoy your time with us. The balcony rooms are an additional cost per night and are not our standard rooms, which is what you had booked. The location of your room had nothing to do with how you booked. We actually consider Rm 212 to be one of our... More

We checked into the Castillo Real after we left the disgusting Holiday Isle. It was the best move of our vacation. The hotel is wonderful, and the staff was very friendly. The bed was very comfortable, and the shower was huge! Everything was very clean. Would definitely come back here if we are back in St Augustine.

At check in, the person was mildly friendly at best. We checked in, found our room on the 3rd floor. We booked an ocean view room - I will post pictures. We called for a taxi (for our 10th anniversary). No taxi came. 10 mikes away = no ride!! We finally just drove. Maybe tomorrow will be better. Not friendly... More

Maggie412, I am sorry to hear that your stay did not start out as well as you had hoped. I apologize that when we called the taxi for you, that they failed to arrive in a timely manner. I can assure that follow up calls were made, however we have no control over the independent taxi companies. We term all... More
