I don't know where to start, all I can say is that from the reservation to check out, we were treated like family. We were there 7-16 to 7-19. Everyone was very nice and the room was so clean. (love the ceramic tile floors, a MUST when dealing with sand) We were on the first floor and still had a great view. Any and all questions that we had were answered, from what to see while in St. Augustine, to some good places to eat. Tropicana Cuban Cafe was awesome! We had their 3 topping pizza with Cuban pork. The hotel is planning on having a pool in 2013 but with the beach and everything else at your fingertips, you really don't miss it. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

We stayed here as a last minute trip to see family before my husband deploys to Afghanistan. My family loved it!! The location is perfect and the staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone's stay was perfect. You will not find a more friendly staff anywhere....I'm sure of it! My children loved the cats that have made their home at the Beach House and feeding the birds on the porch was exciting for them (thanks for the cups of birdseed you gave them). We also enjoyed the check out time of 12:00 which is later than most places by an hour or more. We will certainly stay here again!

Very clean and comfortable. Also very quiet considering everyone seemed to have a pet. Would stay again.

Room Tip: no elevator, lots of stairs to the 3rd floor

Thank you for visitng with us - and for your very kind comments. We do hope you will plan to return for another visit! We agree, It would be very nice to have an elevator - especially since the views are so amazing from the third floor. Maybe someday!!?? Thanks again..

We discovered the Beach House a few years ago. Now we won't stay anywhere else when we visit St. Augustine. Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, right on the beach, and, most importantly - pet-friendly!!! - What more can you ask for? Great restaurants are just a few minutes away, and the historic Old City is a short, easy drive. My husband & I love this place and visit as often as we can. Absolutely perfect, every visit!

Room Tip: The third floor rooms have the best views!

We travelled to the St Augustine Beach House via rental car after a wonderful week long vacation at Disney World. We flew to Orlando from Canada, had a wonderful Disney experience and was looking forward to a few days of downtime after a busy week of Theme Parks with our kids (ages 5 & 6). We were not disappointed!! The Beach House was a wonderful experience for us. At the time - December 2011 they were undergoing renovations to the hotel and the new Publix grocery store was days away from opening. The staff was wonderful and very accomodating!! They even left a Christmas treat for our kids as we were there on Dec 25. Luckily Santa found our kids in Florida (we brought their stockings in our luggage from home) and he left the bigger gifts under the tree back home in Ontario. We had a wonderful time combing the beach for shells and other seaside treasures (pictures attached are at low tide around 4:30 p.m.). We were able to locate a few small shark teeth and TONS of pretty shells on the shoreline right in front of the hotel. What is also great is that you are able to drive your vehicle on the beach (although we didnt chance it with our rental car!). The room was very clean (3rd floor), great for capturing early morning sunrise over the ocean pictures. The fridge and microwave were handy. My husband and I slept in the bed while the kids had a nice sized pull-out couch to share. This a wonderful place to travel in particular if travelling with pets. Towels, shampoo and soap etc. were in great supply. My only suggestions would be a few upgrades, which I know have already since been completed. There are some wonderful pictures on their facebook page that show some of the improvements. We would stay here again!! The price, location, wonderful staff make this place a gem!!

Room Tip: 3rd floor was great for privacy, security and for taking pictures. First floor rooms would be great...

We stayed at the Beach House for only one night as a stop over on our way from New York to Disney. What a wonderful place. The friendliness of the staff, the spacious room, the ocean views all made this one night stay a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a nice relaxing place to stay at the beach. We will return, next time for longer!
