This was a great find! We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the room was great, and the view from our balcony was awesome. The staff was very responsive to any requests that we had, and we really appreciated all there help as we were checking in. We can't wait to go back to stay longer!

Stayed three night Easter week and can't think of a single complaint. Arrived early and they called to let us know when the room was vacated and would be ready within the hour. Traveled with two dogs and they were very accommendating.

We originally were looking to stay in St. Augustine beach, but our Floridian son, recommended Vilano Beach instead, and we were very happy he did. Then we got extremely lucky finding The Saint Augustine Beach House. Chad who helped check us in was extremely nice and down home friendly. In fact down home friendly is a great way to describe this place. It's like your staying with family. The room were very nice, spacious and clean. AND THE VIEW IS SPECTACULAR!!! We would definitely stay again!! While there you can walk down to the pier, walk around the neighborhood and see the gorgeous home around Porpoise Point, or wake up early and go barefoot from your room right down to the beach and catch a beautiful sunrise. Relax on your balcony, every room has one, drink a cold one and watch the sunset, moon rise and the peaceful ocean waves.

Room Tip: Try to stay 2nd or 3rd floor, far left (north) rooms as possible.

I stayed at this hotel for the last week. First you absolutely have to mention the view.... ITS GREAT. I have never seen a hotel motel with a better location, Its next asset is the people that work there, They were an failingly friendly. And that means a lot to me. If the people are interested in making your stay a good one, things will always work out. I liked the tile floor, Near the beach this is the only way to go. the bed was good if a bit high. the frig microwave were very convenient. the air conditioner in the front of the unit was fine, The one in the bed room was so LOUD it made me laugh, I didn`t need it because opening and close the door to the deck regulated the temp just fine. Oh did I mention the view and the sun rise. Also there is a major chain food store within walking distance. Some very nice restaurants close by. And the major tourist attractions of st. Augustine are only minutes away. All in all I WILL DEFINITELY STAY AT THIS HOTEL AGAIN

Room Tip: third floor was great But no elevator. next time I will stay on the second floor,

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was large, the view was amazing, and the staff was very friendly, but the main draw is it's location. It's the only hotel directly facing a quiet stretch of public beach (vastly less developed than crowded St. Augustine Beach), within easy walking distance of groceries and casual dining options, and a quick (almost traffic-free) drive from historic St. Augustine.

The only downside is that the housekeeping is a little lax.
- When we checked in, there was a used bath towel hanging in the bathroom. I deposited it outside, but I know people who would have run screaming. If you're that type, this is probably not the place for you.
- While the plates, cups, etc. in the kitchen are a plus, you might want to wash them before you use them. (Fortunately, dish washing liquid is provided; unfortunately, the tenants before us didn't use it.)
- If you stay more than one night, housekeeping will visit only if you ask them. To their credit, someone asked us every day whether we needed anything, but other than asking for more towels, we weren't too demanding -- meaning that by the time we checked out, the room hadn't been fully cleaned for 5 days -- and based on something one of the staff said about how little time she had to attend to rooms between check-out time and check-in time, I suspect that the cleaning our room received after we left was no more thorough than if we had stayed just one night.
- The one deal breaker for me was the floor. After walking around the room barefooted for a short time, the soles of my feet were pitch black. All I can say is ... bring slippers!

Despite these issues, our stay was relaxing, which was what we needed most.

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and found the amazing views, quiet atmosphere, and convenient location to be a relaxing escape. We were very sorry, however, to hear that housekeeping in your room was not up to the high standards we have set for the hotel. Our policy does not allow for compromise in make-ready room prep, regardless of time constraint. Staff is instructed to check with stay-over guests daily to determine individual service requests and to always respond accordingly. It would have been helpful to know of your concerns during your stay, so that we could have immediately addressed them. It is certainly not typical for a guest to have these types of issues, and we hope you will return soon to see us at our more usual best. Thank you for sharing your comments and for choosing to stay with us at The Beach House.
