This hotel on St. Augustine Beach is relatively unremarkable, but we still enjoyed being there. Pro: very friendly and helpful staff, affordable rooms, relatively attractive pool area, location right on the water, free Wifi in room, trolley to St. Augustine stops at front door Con: rooms fairly noisy (could hear people in hallway, next door, and above, as well as...

We stayed here on a long weekend of sightseeing in St Augustine, the hotel is right on the beach and has a nice pool area. It is no frills but the rooms were nicely appointed, clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. We were looking for a place to sleep and relax, if the weather had been warmer this would... More

Stayed in room 421. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Typical squishy pillows that collapse flat to the mattress. Typical three towels for two people. Decor dated and a little shabby. Has ocean view from balcony (if you look to the left) but parking lot below. Short walk out the back to beach but not close to historic district.

Thank you for choosing our hotel. We are glad you found the room to be clean and comfortable. We are right on St. Augustine Beach, so it's about 6 miles to the historic district, which takes approximately 10 or 15 minutes. More

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Isle as part of a web deal. We were 'keeping an eye out' for a trip to the St. Augustine area. Holiday Isle is located across the bridge in St. Augustine Beach, and is very typical of mid-range Florida Beach hotels. Walking in the doors was a trip back to the 80's,... More

Thank you for staying with us. We are pet-friendly, but only on the first floor. The historic district is about 6 miles away, so its about a 10-15 minute drive. For guests with trolley tickets, Old Town Trolley has a free shuttle that runs between our hotel and town from 9am to 4pm. It's a great way to save on... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel and enjoyed our stay. The man who checked us in let us change our room to a south-facing one on the fourth floor, rather than a north-facing room. He also accommodated our request for a room away from the elevators and ice machine. Our room had a balcony from which we could see... More

Hotel is very pet friendly. The beach and historic downtown is pet friendly as well. The first floor of the hotel is for pets and their owners. All the rooms on the first floor are in the process of being renovated. They will all have tile floors, mini refrigerators and microwaves. I have been there before the renovation and was... More

Thank you for coming back and staying with us once again. We are renovating all the pet-friendly rooms to have tile floors, which is very nice for pets and their owners. Many of those rooms do have microwaves/fridges as well, but not all of them. I am glad you plan to stay with us next time you are in town. More

Our experience here was exceptional. The room was comfortable, and the front desk staff went far and above normal expectations. The entire Road scholr experience was excellent: the qualiy of the food and the presention was outstanding, the program and the organization was equally well done.

Totally dog friendly hotel. Holiday Isle appears to be a converted Holiday Inn but don't let that scare you off. The first floor rooms are all dog friendly so expect a few barks along the way. Being dog friendly has its advantages since the floors are all high-end tile (in case of accidents) and the rooms have a dedicated fresh... More
