Our room was so clean. The grounds were spotless. We never saw a piece of trash anywhere. The breakfast was great and the server was so nice. She kept everything plentiful. We had an accessible room, but there was no chair in the shower. I asked the desk clerk if we could get one, but she told me they were...

Staff very helpful, nice room, grounds and pool area kept nice, fantastic breakfast (Make sure you TIP) as they all were working hard to feed everyone lol. I would certainly recommend Southern Oaks Inn to everyone staying in St Augustine. They have trolley services to take people to downtown, (Parking very limited downtown). Close to stores and beach and restaurant's....

This a clean and convenient motel near downtown Saint Augustine. This is one of the few pet friendly places that we have stayed where there is a large fenced area for your pet! If you have a pet, request a first floor room; the stairs are hard to navigate with a pet. Our dog is only 16 pounds. We asked...

The rooms are spartan in terms of furniture, but the bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. Hardwood floors are a nice feature. Towels were good. I thought it was strange that I had to request hangers from the front desk as apparently they don't put them in the rooms. I would think that most people need at...

A beautiful establishment. Polite and friendly staff, beautiful foliage throughout, well lit exterior, and even a dog friendly outdoor park. With so much to do and see in this area, Southern Oaks had great charm of its own added to a wonderful getaway. I would recommend highly to anyone!
