Loved the tile floors in pet room. I did not worry about if my pet would have a accident and it was not smoking room used for pets. The room was great! The location was great the beach was wonderful. The staff was so great too.

This was a cute little place for the money. Its located on the water. Its pretty clean however it is an older hotel. The front desk people were nice, breakfast was good with pleasant service and housekeeping was always on the go, If I have to be honest here, the towel situation was pretty poor. Not only were there not... More

We stayed over the weekend for two nights. The rooms are nice we had a private balcony. It's right on the beach but we didn't go to the beach this time (too cold). We watched the sunrise from the room. The beds are soft. We checked in on Friday and then went to dinner when we returned the fire alarm... More

Hotel is dated but clean. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Wish I had upgraded to ocean view room. The staff was very nice, especially Vicki in the bar! Pool was clean and the pool bar was fun. The only downside was the entertainment in the bar Friday night. Don't remember his name but he was really bad! A juke box... More

This is an old hotel that needs major renovations in a cosmetic sense. The location is great, the beach is a few steps outside of the pool and the hotel offers a bus to historic St.Augustine. Another bonus is if you stay on the weekend they have an awesome breakfast buffet, and will make fresh omlet and waffles. If you're... More

This was a good price, location, and very nice staff. The beach is beautiful! Short drive to St. Augustine and offers a shuttle to different events around the area. I will be back soon it seemed to be very family friendly and pet friendly as well.

This hotel is a great location with direct beach access. We had an ocean view room on the 5th floor with a balcony. That was great. The hotel had nice staff and was clean, but was older than the online images made it seem. The place needs an overhaul. The first floor had a smell in the hall. The halls... More

We love to go weekend getaways from Jacksonville and often go to Daytona Beach and a few times St Augustine Beach. We got a deal on the Holiday Isle so we figured we would give it a shot. While our stay was good, the location is not what I would consider a resort. I mean our room was clean and... More
