We stayed here for two nights so we could see the history of Saint Augustine. The check in was flawless ( thanks Hardy). The room was clean, the fridge, kuerig & microwave were a bonus. We chose this based on having breakfast and we were not disappointed. Would stay again, walking the beach in the evenings is pleasant too!

A special Thank You to Hardy!!! He really went all out for myself and my family. Somehow our reservations were cancelled through the travel site we booked with. It was bike week and spring break and there wasn't a reservation to be had. Somehow he found us the last room and gave us a Fl resident discount... We plan on returning this summer. By the way the private beach was fab. Thanks again Hardy. You made a potential disaster into one of the best vacations my family will never forget.

Just been here a few hours.. The place is very clean and personable with attention to detail in all corners. Our needs were addressed quickly and I have absolutely NO COMPLIANTS.. Breakfast in the morning, then off to our hot sites. Definitely a diamond in the rough.

Room Tip: Definitely get a 2nd floor room if you wish to have a nice view.. The two corner rooms are very nice...

My husband & I stayed at the Ocean Sands for two nights earlier in the week. The staff was friendly and helpful; the room was clean; and the location was great. We reserved a marsh view room on the 2nd floor; it was very quiet and offered a lovely view all the way to the river. As other reviewers have noted, A1A runs between the hotel and the beach, so ocean view rooms may get a lot of road noise. Our room had a really comfortable king mattress, a large flat screen TV, a shower with great water pressure & plenty of hot water, a microwave, and a mini fridge that had a separate freezer. The beach in front of the hotel was peaceful and never crowded, but if you want more "action," you can drive to the main public beach in 5 minutes. The breakfast was nothing fancy but offered a variety of choices.

This place is nice, the view is beautiful from the top floor, the rooms are clean and comfortable with lots of charm. The staff is very friendly and helpful! I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for somewhere to stay near the St. Augustine area.
