    Great location. Across from the ocean. Lisa, at the front desk, was fantastic and so helpful. The hotel offers everything you need for a beach stay....chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, etc. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

    My girlfriend and I stayed here as part of a last minute trip we threw together. Conveniently located near St Augustine yet far enough away from the hustle and traffic. Staff were very nice and the room was comfortable for our needs.
