This is a 3 + star hotel. We stayed there in October, 2021 and would stay no where else in St. Augustine. Only 10 minutes from the historic district, but feels many miles from that hustle and bustle. Staff and owners were awesome, and the rooms had wonderful little edible amenities to consume, when we arrived. Has the feel of a mix between a B&B and small hotel. The owner accommodated us in a special way that we really appreciated, as we came there from a poultry show in Fanning Springs. FL.. I cannot say enough good things about this place!

Just to start off this will be very detailed. The place is cute and clean. Beds are extremely comfortable. Staff was warm and welcoming at check-in. Mood was set up for a great stay when you get here. Ordered room with garden view, there’s no garden. It’s a wall blocking the road. There is a sign that clearly states no pets and kids are running around with their puppy outside. We go outside to get our clothes, and a guest is urinating on the trail to the ocean. Awesome view as he waves to us like it’s normal. I got room 103, next to owners or live in care takers quarters and right at the front of the building near check-in/out. He snores like a chain saw. So, We were up since 4am. Then the people started coming to eat at 6am. The walls in this place are so paper thin, and parents have evidently forgot how to teach their kids about inside voices, wait… they were loud and yelling through here too. It went on for hours. And nobody corrected the action. I understand that the hotel is not responsible for the quality of guest, but setting the sound stage. They need to insulate their walls for a little sound proofing and put on doors that are a little better to keep outside noise out. For $300 a night rooms, they can put a little more into the place to make it comfortable for everyone. At a minimum, fill the front rooms last, and enforce your policies. Not worth the money charged, and definitely a horrible experience. I don't like leaving poor reviews, but the experience was just not optimal.

I booked this hotel for my father and stepmother for their very first trip to Saint Augustine. I was hesitant at first with the negative reviews, but can honestly say it was a pleasant surprise that the hotel was fantastic! I visited my parents and got a tour of the hotel, and then walked across the street to the private beach entrance. That was the winner for me, it was exactly as described! Their room looked exactly how it did in the online photos, and their view (though just a ‘pool’ view, had a view of a little lake behind it and it was gorgeous!) The two of them had a blast and talk about it often, and of course they fell in love with the beach and Saint Augustine! I’m sure all of us will be back soon!

Was there 3 nights with spouse 2 weeks ago. Direct access to ocean across the street. New owners here, they are making upgrades. This is a very casual and beachy feel place and for us, more than adequate. The bed was amazingly comfortable. Lots of parking. Small pool. ALL of the staff very helpful, especially with recommendations. Katie excelled at helping us in this area.

We traveled there for our kids fall break and it was our first time staying there needless to say we will always stay there. The place was cozy and the staff was warming and so nice! Rooms were clean and the beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept on! They had popcorn and cookies everyday for our kids! And little board games. They also provided beach towels and chairs for the beach. There beach is private and so beautiful.. it was not crowded at all and it was easy to let our kids run free on the beach without any worry! My husband is a 100 percent disabled veteran and has horrible ptsd and dreads staying any where but here he was so happy and pleased he is begging to go back to stay as soon as we can! The whole staff was nice and so perfect to easy name a few there was Susan, Katie, Alberto, and the housekeeping lady was super outstanding and it was such a relief to finally find a staff and hotel as amazing as it was! My husband said he would take any of them to battle because he knows they would have his back 100% And that’s a lot Coming from him…. Thank you guys for making my family feel so special.
