Our downtown location keeps guests close to favorite sites like the Spanish Fort Castillo de San Marcos, and the Mission Nombre de Dios. Guests can easily tour St. Augustine by catching the nearby Old Town Trolley or Ripley’s Red Train. Enjoy wine tasting at San Sebastian Winery, or visit the nearby St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum. St. Augustine is the oldest city in the nation. Visitors appreciate impressive displays of Spanish architecture and tranquil beaches. The famed Ponce de Leon, fountain of youth is a short stroll from our ideal downtown St. Augustine location. Whether you rest beneath the shade of “The Old Senator”, the 650-year-old live oak tree on our grounds, or relax under the Florida sun beside our pool. We invite you to be our guest at the Villa 1565 in St. Augustine

We really enjoyed our stay here, and the location is perfect. Our first room had no cold water in the sink, so front desk gladly gave us a new room. That room’s shower faucet came off, but was usable, and we reported it. Other than that, the room was fine. We appreciated the offer of fresh towels daily, and garbage emptied. A new yogurt machine in the breakfast room was wonderful. We also REALLY appreciated the staff’s compliance with wearing masks inside at all times.

Excellent location. Walk to everything, although we still took the trolley tour which was very enlightening. Hotel staff was excellent. We Highly rate this establishment. Literally the backside of the Fountain of Youth's property.

A motel with a trolley stop right there. New paint, clean, except for the floors, so wear shoes or sandles at all times. Pleasant staff. Full BF if you like eggs etc. No guests were wearing masks. Definitely a motel. Not a hotel.

The room was decent. The bed was very comfortable, however, the room was very warm. Usually hotels are freezing but the wall unit couldn't keep up with the Florida heat. The hotel was occasionally noisy and the bathroom looked like it was recently renovated but a botched job as the faucet was wobbly and the caulking in the shower had cracks and gaps. The staff was friendly and the location and price point were great, but I would not stay here again.

The location is pretty and room was clean and it’s well managed. If you are planning to walk to Old town be prepared to walk at least 16/20 min. Not 10 min that was a bit of a surprise. It’s great the the trolly tours is one of the stops at the location of the hotel. That was a plus. This was my first time visiting St. Augustine. It’s a beautiful area lots historical things to see and learn about. My only disappointment was that the beds and pillows weren’t very comfortable :( sad to say but true. Also the door to the room seems to have a crack between the frame and the door because we ended up having mosquitoes in the room and I ended up with bites all over my legs. I had stuff I was prepared but it didn’t help :(. Besides that overall the stay was great. We had a good time.
