4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Made a quick trip to the oldest city in the US and wow were we amazed! Absolutely beautiful here with lots to do. Not overly commercialized but plenty of things to do to keep you busy. Quaint little shops everywhere and museums and history galore! We were disappointed in the beaches and ocean as we normally go gulf side and... More

The hotel is charming with clean rooms and friendly staff. The biscuits & gravy for breakfast was amazing. The location is not too fast from the historic. TripAdvisor requires 200 characters for reviews so just added this silly line

We have been coming to St. Augustine for about 20 years and finding a clean hotel for a decent price is not always easy. My wife booked us for four nights at the Southern Oak Inn for the first time. We were very surprised. Wood floors instead of the normal (nasty) carpeted floors. Very clean rooms. A complimentary (and tasty)... More

The location is very accessible to the historic district. The Old Town Trolley will pick you up at the front entrance. The breakfast was great, was much more than I expected. Staff was friendly and very willing to assist. Room was very simple but very clean.

We liked the location and had a trolley for $2.00 to take you downtown. Older hotel but it was clean. Wood floors in rooms. Breakfast was good and actually had a server. If you keep your receipt from a trolley taken within the last three days, you received a discount for the tour on the trolley. We would stay there... More

My favorite part was the breakfast service. The large comfortable room had two friendly servers greating guests and serving hot entree items. There was also a well stocked cold service counter. Southern Oaks is a charming older motel that is going through tasteful renovations.

The staff was wonderful and very helpful. Really limed the service in the breakfast area. The room was average but clean. It was a little further out from town than we expected but right across the street from the Red rain Tour. Good value for the price.

Very nice and clean place not too far from down town and attractions. Awsome place if you have dogs, they have a small dog run which was great for my two large hound dogs. The staff was very friendly and helpful with area knowledge.
