“Wonderful breathtaking views at very reasonable prices!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

My family stayed four nights. Booking was a breeze. Check-in was easy. The entire staff was extremely nice and very accommodating. The front desk was very helpful in finding places to eat and directions to sight seeing places. The room was clean and had a nice neutral atmosphere. Housekeeping offered to clean our rooms daily. We never lacked for fresh towels or fresh sheets. A roll out bed was brought to our room upon arrival for our kids. Breakfast was nice with selections including, cereal,oatmeal, donuts, bagels, "make it yourself" waffles, eggs, and sausage. Coffee, orange juice and milk were also available. The heated pool was small but nice for lounging. It also had a cover top overhead for shade. The ocean was just across the street with an easy access private boardwalk. Wonderful for those who want breathtaking views at very reasonable prices. We are planning our next trip.

I couldn't give them the highest rating because of an issue right at the beginning of our stay. When I pulled down the sheets, it was immediately evident that they had not been changed from the previous guest. I notified the front desk to tell them and Dwayne was at our door with clean sheets immediately. He quickly remade our bed and made certain that everything else was to our satisfaction. The rest of the stay was trouble free and the staff that we dealt with (Dwayne and Lisa) were fantastic. Even with the troubles at the beginning, I would stay there again.

Room Tip: If you don't mind a little road noise, the 2nd beach view rooms are the best.

I attempted to book with the hotels booking service and it was a disaster. The woman could not hear, could not type, could not use a computer and she did not complete the booking before making a phone call to the hotel so when she returned to the computer my room had been booked by someone else. Because we are traveling with dogs our options are limited so this could have been a real problem. I called the hotel myself and the wonderful Hardy performed magic tricks and found a room for us. Thank you Hardy!!

We booked this hotel while traveling back to Florida from Georgia after a family emergency. With only 4 hours notice we were able to book a king, jacuzzi suite with a gorgeous view of the Intercoastal waterway. It was just what we needed after 1200 miles in a car! Hardy, Lisa and Vanessa were great! The breakfast was okay, would appreciate alternate breakfast meat choices such as turkey bacon or sausage...not all of us eat beef and pork..maybe some different juices als,. but otherwise everything was awesome! The king bed was divine! The jacuzzi worked out sore, tired muscles and we enjoyed late checkout the next day. Was quiet and peaceful, will definitely stay again and again when we need a getaway from home, only a few hours away! Thanks to everyone!

Room Tip: The Intercoastal view is quite lovely if you have stayed in an ocean view room previously. Lots of w...

We stayed here for two nights so we could see the history of Saint Augustine. The check in was flawless ( thanks Hardy). The room was clean, the fridge, kuerig & microwave were a bonus. We chose this based on having breakfast and we were not disappointed. Would stay again, walking the beach in the evenings is pleasant too!
