“A Night In Saint Augustine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Leaving Friday morning 8/30, our plan was to get from North New Jersey to Saint Augustine by early evening. Our plan was to enjoy the evening there and part of the next day as we were picking up relatives at the Orlando airport at 4:30 pm, Saturday. 16 hours later, we arrived in St. Augustine and my wife, having read the reviews, decided on this hotel. We were greeted by two ladies, Hannah and Amanda at the front desk. They were very helpful with setting up our stay for the night. The accommodations were excellent. The room was spotless. Everything in the room looked new and the sleep that we need was on a very comfortable bed. Once settled in, we went downstairs where the ladies suggested a good place to eat. Needless to say they were on the money. This hotel is no more than 15 minutes from historic Saint Augustine which is enough distance away for peace and quiet when returning. The breakfast was ok and what was expected of us so we have no complaints. When we decide to visit again, this will be our hotel of choice. Overall, a great experience.

I stayed here for a weekend with my wife and we were very impressed with the cleanliness and attention to details of this hotel. We booked a quiet room at the 4th floor which was spacious and comfortable. The fact that it is away from the congested and busy St. Augustine downtown was something that we were looking for. Plus, the breakfast was phenomenal !!!! This hotel would be our first choice in case we need accomodation again close to St. Augustine.

This hotel, even though it is a few minutes away from the main action (historical district) in Saint Augustine, it is a great option for families.

The hotel features some larger rooms that do well for accommodating a family of 5 like mine. Most hotel rooms are so small that fitting a family of 5 can be more an exercise of endearment than enjoyment. So we were very happy to have a room that was a larger, more comfortable size that gives each family member some space to breathe and move. For us, that feature was very important and our room size greatly helped our family experience for this portion of our trip.

The room was quite clean which is always a must for us. That was appreciated. We don't patronize dirty hotels.

The pool was a little heavy on the Chlorine. But given all the little kids in the pool, I won't fault them that. Better safe than having our kids sick with some weird disease.

The breakfast was OK. Not great, but it worked. It was tasty and nutritious enough that we were happy to eat it. Keeping in mind the price we paid for the hotel, I won't complain about the food. Could it be better? Sure. But good enough that I won't complain.

The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. I give them top marks for service and a great attitude, being willing to help make our stay as good as it can be. Check-in and check out was lightning fast. I was seriously impressed with that. Super-fast, easy, and problem free.

When we return to Saint Augustine, given our experience on this last stay, we will very likely return to this specific hotel.

Last review was me, please delete and replace with this one.

This hotel was highly rated on Trip Advisor. It did not live up to those ratings.
The good:
It is clean, fresh, trendy and new.
Good location for outlet shopping and proximity to Interstate.
Nate at the front desk was extremely helpful, courteous and professional. Please give him a raise.
The king bed was comfortable and clean.
Room safe in closet, good amenity.

The bad:
Loud air conditioner.
Walls not soundproof. We heard people next door chattering and tv until after 1:30am.
Pool is indoor and it was cold.
There is no hot tub nor whirlpool.
The breakfast is hot all right but from a box and it is terrible; both days.
The layout of the breakfast area is also horrible and not conducive to traffic.

Overall the local people who work here are great.
Corporate Holiday Inn HQS should have used more competent designers.
I will not return, taking my business elsewhere next time.

This hotel is a great place to stay. Convenient to the shopping outlets, i-95 and not far from the historical area of St. Augustine. The hotel is very clean, taken care of, the breakfast is better than nothing. Everybody on staff was helpful and courteous. The only problem was if you use their pool (which is clean and nice) wear an old bathing suit, because it will bleach the suits. Both of my daughters went swimming and both of their suits were ruined by to much chlorine in the pool. Other than that I highly recommend this as a good stay.

The hotel in general was very good. But there are two items that can be improved: The AC unit was very loud and disturbed our sleep and breakfast was not good (very artificial) everything is from a box, nothing fresh.

This was possibly the cleanest Holiday Inn property we have ever stayed in. The entire hotel was in excellent condition and very clean.The staff was very helpful and friendly. They gave us some very good suggestions for dinner in the old town. It is only a short drive from the historic area and the beach points. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and we would definitely go back to this hotel . Air conditioning was very quite and did not disturb our sleep.
