A short drive from the over rated jax beach. Very friendly, comfortable, and secure.. Hard to find a good deal on Florida's Atlantic beach for the weekends these days. 4 stars for the best bang for your buck!!

Besides the carpet in our pet friendly room, the people were Great. One of the best I have encounted at a resort hotel. Just ask if you have any questions or problems and the staff will answer or solve it. Thanks to the front desk service Beverly and the others, also Jeff the other staff members made my stay well...

I wish I would have read the reviews prior to booking the hotel...there is no way this is considered a "resort". The hotel is very old and not maintained well....i hated walking barefoot in the carpeted room it was so old. The beach is great but there is not even a rest room at the pool area, you have to...

Thank you for staying with us. We are an older 'resort' hotel and do offer some resort amenities such as a full-service restaurant, poolside tiki bar, beach chair and umbrella rentals, and we are directly on the beach. We apologize that it wasn't all that you expected. The ownership of our hotel is looking to get bathrooms closer to the... More

Stayed in St. Augustine for a couple of days prior to going to Disney and traveling south for a family vacation. This was a great relaxing way to start a vacation as the staff were super friendly and the beach was perfect! The hotel is a little older but very clean and its obvious the staff are experienced in making... More

I would say that is an average hotel at best. It is a pretty old hotel; however, the beds and linens were very clean. It was also located in different buildings. One building was in the front and then they had a tower building in the back with 5 floors. I will say that this hotel was very accomodating. They... More

Thank you for staying with us. Sorry we couldn't help more with the taxi service. Sometimes, especially when there is a concert going on at the St. Augustine Amphitheater, the taxis take extra time to arrive. We are glad you enjoyed everything else with your stay. We do have an employee that looks after the pool each day, and I... More

Just got a follow up email from hotel, wherein they asked me to share how I enjoyed my stay. I did not. In my opinion, hotel needs to close down and completely renovate, rather than stay open... or tear down and re-develop. Allow pets, but do not welcome them. They've got a great beachfront location, but it's not worth the... More

I am sorry that you were not satisfied with the location of our pet-friendly rooms. We do not allow pets in the oceanfront rooms or above the first floor and that is a strict policy that we have to abide by and try to make it as clear as possible on our website. More

Wife and I loved the immaculate, comfortable, and attractive ocean view room. Even though the weather wasn't totally cooperative (windy), we had a very romantic retreat. Staff was friendly, courteous, and efficient (special thanks to Maryann at the front desk). Resort has closest access to the beach that we saw and the only one supplying beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. This... More

This used to be a holiday inn and I've stayed there many times. This was my first time since it became Holiday Isle. Everything was about the same. Front desk was nice and helpful, rooms were average, looks like they might have gotten some new linens. Elevators are VERY slow thought and there is not alot of parking on the... More

I was a little put off by the low(ish) ratings I read online, regarding this resort. However, with not much time between booking a place and leaving and being spring break, I figured I was lucky to find any spot reasonably priced on the ocean. Our room was lovely, updated and clean. More important (to me) is that the linens... More
