Being right on the beach and the service provided by the manager saved this from a 1 star rating. Our room was filthy, floor sandy and the walls had black hand prints that looked like a crime scene dusting. There were also electrical and cable outlets that were exposed with no covers. The hallway floors are tile so you hear... More

It was a pleasure speaking with you when you checked out. I truly appreciated your feedback, and have already addressed the items you mentioned about the room.

We stayed here for 3 nights with our handicapped family member. A staff member named Deontae was very helpful. He helped us with accommodations and went above & beyond, taking time out of his busy schedule to assist us. In exceeding all expectations, he helped make our trip more enjoyable.

The location is great! It is right on the beach. We have stayed here several times. The pool is large. They offer towels, which is nice. The rooms were always clean and the staff has always been friendly. The Tiki bar is convenient. You can rent chairs on the beach with an umbrella if you don't want to pack yours.

This hotel is overpriced and poorly run. We stayed Saturday and Sunday nights. We left Sunday morning at 9 am to see the sights around St. Augustine and got back around 5 pm.

This visit to Holiday Isle was even better than our last! The rooms have been beautifully updated and the location is perfect. Having a hotel right on the beach with a private balcony is an excellent part of the visit to St. Augustine, Fl.

I get that families want to enjoy the pool but at sunset, they should get out and let the adults enjoy some time before the pool closes for the night. I don't know how the "adult supervisor" could even see the kids in the pool to supervise them. It was actually dark before the kids got out. The "tiki bar"... More

Yes it might be cheap, but the hotel is being refurbished. I read a review stating this from February, but didn't realize it would be still going on in July. The hotel has 5 floors and instead of refurbing a floor at a time, so the dirt and dust could have been confined to just the one floor, they're doing... More
