“Great value hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Stayed one night with my family while passing through SA. I thought the Jaybird was a terrific value. The rooms are very nice and super comfortable. The service at check-in was outstanding, the staff was very polite and helpful. The discount for breakfast at the restaurant next door made the value even better. There was a lot of work being done to the motel but no inconvenience to guests and the improvements look great. We would absolutely stay again, and will the next time we are that way.

We decided to give Jaybird's Inn a try based on the positive reviews in trip advisor.
Unfortunately we were disappointed. We are very open minded when it comes to lodging. We have stayed in nice places and not so nice places. Unfortunately here it wasn't about the rooms which we loved it was more about the bad experience.

The good: the rooms are FANTASTIC. Big rooms, no carpet, a sofa, big flat tv, microwave, fridge, nice fixtures.

The bad: we were very concerned about the clientele.

Note: They advertise free continental breakfast but you only receive a $5 voucher for the restaurant (which was very good by the way) but if you were budgeting for free breakfast then this is important to consider.

We stayed at Jaybird's for 1 night to enjoy St. Augustine after a week at the beach. The accommodations were very clean and new and the rate was great. You must try the restaurant. Can't wait to stay again next year after the remodel is finished. We will be back!!!!!

I came across the reviews of Jaybird's Inn and used Bookings.com. Our trip had to be delayed and the staff was very accommodating with our date changes. They are still undergoing remodeling phase and that could be seen in parts of the lobby area. From our end of the hotel, you would have never known....very clean and quiet. Rooms are as you see in the pics with a modern feel and spacious. Everything you need from coffee maker, iron, mini fridge and microwave are at your fingertips. We had a king bed that was very comfy with a couch in the room. The table area was great for meals or when I had to jump on the computer -- free in-room WiFi, by the way. The Jaybird's Restaurant has an excellent selection of food as well and is right across the street. On the other side of US1 is a CVS (open 24 hrs) and a Walgreens. This was great for us & as a last minute late night run for snacks -- though there is also a vending machine onsite. I would definitely stay at Jaybirds again and plan to add it as a stopping point on my travels through Florida.

Room Tip: South side of the building faces an interior street and is directly across from the restaurant.

WOW! My husband and I booked at the last minute on Saturday and from previous experiences we know you should never do that, but this time we lucked out we walked into a elegantly put together lobby and was still a little unsure about it until a young man who said he was part of management walked us threw the room and WOW it was perfect, between how friendly he was and how perfect the room was we couldn't turn away. He assured us that he would take care of us and that we would have no worries or problems and honestly he was right, This is our new stopping point when we travel south and highly recommend it to everyone

My family & I were recently forced to take an overnight "staycation" when the air conditioning in our St. Augustine home went on the fritz. The first hotel we called had no vacancies, but recommended we call the newly-renovated Jaybird's. I had seen it listed online, but was a bit put-off by the reviews posted when this facility was the old Alhambra motel. Don't make the same mistake I (almost) did! Jaybird's is awesome! Same address, completely new-and-improved inn! The staff was courteous and quick to help, and the room was clean, well-priced and very nicely redecorated. Even with a few loose ends from their substantial remodeling still to be tied up, this was one of the better stays I've had in a hotel in some time. We got one of the suites so our nine-year-old son could have his own room (and flat screen TV), and he loved it! Our overnight stay has been one of the highlights of his summer- it was that good. The adjoining Jaybird's restaurant is beautiful, and its outdoor patio second-to-none. My friends here in St. A. consider me to be the "go-to" guy for recommendations for restaurants, etc.; I'm telling them all to go to Jaybird's!
