Don't let the negative reviews scare you away. Our extremely clean hotel room was facing the beach andd besides the great location and view we had a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would book the hotel again. In this economy the priice is right, too. Ask for beach front. The cost is a little more, but... More

This hotel was recommended to us by friends due to the location and value. The location and price were perfect but the condition of the room was filthy beyond belief. The beds were uncomfortable and the bedding was really cheap and ugly. The worst part though was upon checking in, the hotel clerk was coughing and sneezing all over our... More

Recommended by friends, and now by us. Formerly (until last October) a Holiday Inn, now an independent. It retains that HI look and feel, and is well managed. The location is fabulous--right on the beach, while competitor hotels are on the other side of the highway.

The hotel was once a Holiday Inn, it still has the sign on the road. Rooms are showing their age, but not bad for the price. There is no safe or microwave in the rooms, something thought was standard. Maids aren't too bright, kept forgetting to leave us towels and coffee. We were on the 4th floor. On our balcony,... More

This was, until very recently, a Holiday Inn. When we pulled into the parking lot on February 24, 2011, the Holiday Inn sign was still out front and other Holiday Inn items were still around the hotel. What I believe is that the Holiday Inn just stopped maintaining this place and sold it to a management company in lieu of... More

MikeNet, thank you for staying with us and for your honest review. After being a Holiday Inn for many years, our owners recently decided to go independent and we have been working hard to replace all the Holiday Inn branding and update the hotel. Our new sign by the road has just been completed and installed. We are also in... More

So not stay here unless you want to be called at 3am and called a liar by the front desk clerk! I was in St Augustine on business and I wanted a room on the beach so I booked a night at this hotel. Everything was fine until 3am when the phone rang and it was the front desk. The... More

We strive to provide every guest with a clean, comfortable and quiet room. It is our policy to not call a room regarding a noise complaint without going outside the room first to verify it first. We have thoroughly apologized and refunded the guest 100% for the misunderstanding. More

Former Holiday Inn offers a great location on a great strip of beach. The hotel staff was pleasant and friendly. The hotel is a little on the tired side, but acceptable. Hotel pool is not heated. The beach is wonderful. For the price, it was a good deal for a last minute girl's trip. We did not plan to be... More

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your last minute girls' trip. We are a older hotel, but we are constantly making improvements to better serve our guests in the future. Within the past few years, the oceanfront and north-facing rooms have been renovated, leaving only the south-facing rooms left to complete. We are also working to update the pool... More

The staff was very helpful. We could not find the place on our gps and we called and they guided us to their location. The beds and room were very nice and clean. The beach there is beautiful.

Hello greggwill2, thank you for celebrating your daughter's birthday with us. Our owners recently elected to become independent of the Holiday Inn brand, and we are working diligently on changing everything over to our new name. We apologize that some GPS devices are not recognizing the new name just yet, but they should be soon. We are glad you called... More

This is our 3rd year staying in St. Augustine on our way down to Southern Fla. This is the first time we stayed out on St. Augustine Beach. We chose this hotel because it was pet friendly and the couple we were travelling with have a small dog and the hotels down town that allow pets are very seedy. What... More

Hello PASANDYBAY, Thank you for staying with us here on the beach. We are sorry the tiki bar was not open when you were here. It normally doesn't open until closer to summer, but we are working to get it open sooner this year with all the warm weather we've been having. As for our restaurant, our chef has just... More

We have stayed here twice, once on a pre-booked trip and once on a spur of the moment change from the disgusting St Augustine Beachfront Resort.
