Book it with points two years ago, and upgraded it for $100.00 a night. Got a great room. This year we only used points. They stuck us in room 102 which is poor room, and had next to no water pressure in the shower. We all wished we had gone to the other comfort inn. In short, got money to... More

We come to this hotel for a week every year in July and LOVE IT!!! The balcony beach views are excellent, hotel is spotless, bed is soft and comfortable, sauna is beyond relaxing and the atmosphere is blissful. The location is perfect for walking to the beach and/or restaurants. We have been staying here for 4 years and will continue.

Booked a couple rooms for a weekend getaway for the family. Price seemed a bit higher than we would normally pay, but that ended up not being a big deal considering how nice and spacious the rooms were and location to the beach which my daughter loved. The large jacuzzi tub was nice..would have rather it be hidden from in... More

My family and I moved down here for a few dollars more from the dumpy Holiday Isle which was right down the street. I was happy they could accommodate us. The hotel is very pretty, clean, and I found the staff to be more then helpful and nice. We stayed in an executive suite. It is not right on the... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at Castillo Real and I am so glad we did. This place is very nice and has an excellent staff. After having stayed the two nights prior in Jacksonville I was so glad to get here and see how nice and clean the room was. Only steps from the beach and a short drive to... More

Everything about our stay at this hotel was pleasant. The room was clean, the staff was nice, the restaurant inside the hotel was fantastic, and the location was good. The only possible things that would have made our stay better where if more rooms had balconies (ours did not and they did not offer 2 bed rooms with a balcony),... More

This hotel looked great online and had several positive reviews but was very disappointing. The staff were disinterested, verging on rude. The rooms were shabby and not particularly clean. ( there were red splashes on the bathroom door when we arrived; looked like spilled wine, which were there for the whole of our stay.) Promised sea view was a building... More

suzanne132637, We are very sorry that you found your stay here only average and did not enjoy it. Most reviewers rave about or cleanliness and friendliness. I can't even begin to imagine our staff being rude. As for our view, it is advertised as a partial ocean view, and we never shy away from the fact that you can see... More

Stayed here a few months ago and absolutely loved it. Very close to the beach and the front staff is very friendly and helpful. Last time we were on the first floor and everything was fine. This time we were on the third floor and where do I begin....there was little to no water pressure, we turned the ac down... More

jaydylan, I apologize for the housekeeping issues that occurred during your stay with us. Please let us know in the future if there any maintenance issues so that we may fix them immediately.

Had not been back to St Augustine in twenty years. Hotel was recommended and enjoyed the experience immensely. Room was spacious and contained a microwave and small refrigerator. The staff was very helpful and the dinner menu was varied with many choice selections. The extremely wide beach was a very short walk away. Travel to downtown St Augustine was convenient.

The Castillo Real was a great hotel for spending time at the beach and going into downtown Saint Augustine. The hotel was very clean and the bed was super comfortable! The beach and some very good restaurants are only a few hundred feet away from the hotel.
