“Overpriced and only average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

For the most part, the staff was very friendly. Only less-than-nice person was the check-in clerk when we arrived. Room was a bit musty and carpet felt sticky to bare feet. Found a roach in bathroom. My feet were sticking to the bathroom floor; and when we asked that it be cleaned, they used a strong bleach mixture, so the chlorine smell lingered for quite a while. Apparently, they use quite a bit of bleach all over the hotel. Each day when they were cleaning/mopping the breakfast area in the lobby, the bleach smell was overwhelming.

The breakfast was very good, with quite a variety of foods.

All of the service staff made it a point to greet when we passed by, which was refreshing.

Word of caution.....if you book with hotels.com, you are not allowed to upgrade to a more expensive room with a better view. Also, what they called a partial ocean view was a view of the motel across the street -- at least the part you could see through the palm tree branches.

Great balcony! Fantastic view! Friendly service staff! Clean and quiet room! Comfortable and nice! The staff let us use the facilities before check in which really worked well for us as we wanted to spend the day outside on their beach. I have stayed here before and will sty again.

We have delayed writing a review as we had an issue with the type of room booked through Expedia. Thankfully this has now been resolved. On checking in we were disappointed not to be allocated the type of room we had booked. Kristin, the assistant manager, was extremely helpful and went the extra mile to make sure we were happy. Truly excellent customer service! The room we ended up with was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The complementary breakfast was very good with friendly staff. Really close to beautiful beach with two great restaurants just across the street.
Only one gripe, and that was with the housekeeping. Room was not very clean and often not cleaned till quite late. We know Kristin is aware of this and we're she will put it right if she hasn't done so already.
Overall good stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The location is excellent, approx 15 mins to St Augustine old town,it was relaxing being on the beach and close to restaurants after touring all day, there is a nice restaurant right across the street. The shuttle stops at this hotel if you want to take that to town and prefer not to drive. We had a great view of the beach, pool area with a balcony, that being said I have to say that this hotel is in need of a little TLC, it was not the greatest place that I have stayed but not the worst either but the price/location was right and it was ok for the few days that we stayed. Front desk was friendly.

Room Tip: ocean view

Hosted a wedding at the hotel in September. We rented out their beach area for the rehearsal dinner and it was lovely. I would like to thank the staff for going above and beyond with their customer service. Everyone had a great time. Our group had almost twenty rooms reserved......everyone was very accomodating.

On a more objective note, the rooms did need revamped but their remodel should be in full swing by now.

I stayed here (and wrote a review) several years ago. This beach, and St Augustine as a city, is one of my favorite places on earth. So... we stayed here again for a family fall vacation. We were not dissapointed. Freindly staff, reasonable rates, clean rooms, a perfect location. This is an all around good property.

The beach is just a few steps out the back door and the entire area is clean and safe. This is not a noisy, rucus party beach, but more a nice place to lean back and relax - we love it!

Love this hotel! Location is great. Rooms are great! Perfect Place to stay whether you are in St Augustine for the beaches or the tourist attractions. Oceanview rooms with whirlpool tubs are perfect way to relax.
