“Location is great but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We stayed from Oct. 30 to Nov. 4. On the first day, we have to be moved to another room because the air conditioner was not working. We were moved immediately to another room A/C was working. Room was spacious but was musty despite use of air freshener. Room was not vacuumed at all during our stay. All in all cleanliness had a lot to be desired. We followed instruction to have bedsheets replaced but was not done. Eventually on our 2nd try, it was replaced on the 4th day.
The hotel is well located; close to the beach, restaurants and about 10 minute drive to historic Saint Augustine. Staff was friendly. More than adequate parking during our stay. Good breakfast in a cramped space.

Thank you for your review , we value feedback as it does help us improve service.
I am sorry to hear that you had issues with your A/C on the first night and we did look at it and turns out it had a small leak, this has since been repaired and good to go.
We hope you will come back and see us again.
Thanks

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Stayed because of trip advisor reviews. No wow factor. Staff was friendly coming and going. Hot tube was clean and hot. Appears to have new Rough surface, but clean and hot. Public access beach is across the street. You walk about 2 blocks from the hotel entrance to the entrance of the beach. The beach is very long and wide. The water is another 1-2 blocks.
Parking is tight when close to capacity at the hotel. The pool side has less parking than the other. Almost all room do not face any type of water or ocean view. While not dissatisfied with this facility, I would have liked to stayed on the beach not across. This was in my poor decision making not the hotels.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with friends

Thank you Kelly G for writing a review on our hotel, we appreciate all feedback as it does help us improve service to our guests. The staff are great at this hotel and we are always working on upgrading our rooms. The beach is wide and very beautiful. The county dredges the beaches every couple of years to avoid erosion.
Thanks Again

Good price, good breakfast, adequate location. The staff was pleasant and helpful. There are good restaurants nearby. The beach, which is about a block from the hotel, is excellent. St. Augustine is about a 10 minute drive from the hotel. If you like history, this is the place for you. St. Augustine is easily walked and filled with shops, restaurants, great architecture, and, of course, the fort.

Thank you Steven M for a great review on our hotel. I am happy to hear that your stay with us was enjoyable. St Augustine is a beautiful city and our location is perfect as we have many restaurants within walking distance from us and right across the street from a great beach.
Thank you Again and we hope to see you back soon.

Very comfortable, clean and very well maintained......friendly staff..... included generous and good breakfast..... easy walk to superb white sand huge beach. Enjoyed our stay during two separate stopovers so much that the only criticism is that the plastic forks at breakfast bent too easily.

Good Day and thank you for your wonderful review.
Thank you for staying with us and I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. The beaches are fantastic and every couple of years they dredge the beaches to widen them and make them great.
We value feedback as it does help us improve our services and I will look into the plastic silverware and see what we can do.
Thanks Again

Pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and amenities. The walk to the beach wasn't bad, and the hotel was close enough to historic St. Augustine to be convenient. The only thing that was annoying was that the air conditioner wouldn't go below 77 degrees unless the thermostat noticed movement. So, of course, at night while sleeping, it was a little warm. Overall, a good value. We enjoyed the Colonial Quarter Living Museum in downtown St. Augustine. Make sure you get the tour guide named Grimm - funny and knowledgeable.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a survey and for your great comments, we do appreciate all feedback as it does help us improve services. There are so many great attractions down town and i also enjoyed the Colonial Quarters, next time when you are in town try a Ghost Tour-lots of fun.

we stayed at the seaside inn in the suite the weekend of 10/19/13 which also coincided with Bike-toberfest in Daytona Beach. we had a room booked at the Historical Inn in St. A but the air did not work and the room was stifling. turns out the owner also has the Seaside Inn at the beach. they moved us over to the Seaside and we got the gigantic suite on the third floor. very, very nice room. 2 bedrooms BIG living room lots of storage and super clean. If you are doing St Augistine its better to stay out of the city, drive in, park the car in the city garage, then walk everywhere. that is a great way to see the city. And since we ending up staying at the beach we had great sunsets each night and got to see many happy dog owners at the pet friendly beach. All in all a great stay. we will be back

Thank you for your recent stay with us, and thank you for taking the time to write a survey.
I am glad we were able to change hotels for you and bring you to the beach. Unfortunately equipment goes down but from what i understand they fixed the problem.
We are close to Down Town St Augustine and we do have the trolley tours that pick up at the hotel.
Thank You

The facility is older, but maintained. Our stay was a good experience, quiet and restful. Staff was helpful. Sleeping accommodations were fine. The room was quiet. The bed was comfortable, room temperature was good and the plumbing worked. Breakfast was adequate, but personal preference would be less pastries and choices other than waffles or biscuits and gravy. Eggs and grits would have been great along with the cereals, fruit and yogurt available. One must realize you are here for the stay rather than the food

Good Day Eric E
Thank you for your recent review on our hotel, we love feedback as it does help us improve services. We do provide a hot breakfast and we change it up every other day. When we don't have hot eggs we do have hard boiled eggs in the fridge. We do try and cater to everyone and we try out new ideas to get guest feedback.
Thank You
