Everything seemed great here. I actually liked the smaller rooms...it used to be the Monterrey Inn in the early days till November of 2012...nice accommodations and will be staying here again. Price on weekends is steeper by 100% but during week it was great.

Although the location is terrific with a reasonable price, it is a scary place to stay. The clientele can be out of control, screaming and yelling in a drunken stupor all night long and the hotel staff does NOTHING about it. I got 5 hours sleep the first night. The second night, as the screaming and yelling on the patio, pool, and parking lot was still going on at 1:30 am, I left for another hotel so that I could get a few hours sleep.

Room Tip: Do NOT choose a room. Find another place to stay.

Very comfortable hotel with a very friendly staff. The location is very convenient.to a wide assortment of activities and right outside the hotel is a trolly and Red Train pickup / drop-off point. Great restaurants in the area are within walking distant. A1A Pub, Scarlett O'Hara's were two of our favorites. We would definitely return to St. Augustine and use this hotel. Don't forget to take an evening cruse on the water.

For someone wanting a great locaton adjacent to the city's historic quarter, this motel has it. Our room was small but relatively comfortable. It left little room for stretching out, but overall, the room was fine. One area the easiest to fix was housekeeping. This is where the motel fell short, way short.

After our first night, our room wasn't cleaned and it took nearly an hour after calling the front desk (the first time) for fresh towels, more soap and coffee. After the second night, soap, coffee and tissues weren't replaced which required another call to the front desk.

We arrived at the hotel quite late, with reservations and a late arrival confirmation. Computer problems happen, but it happened when we arrived so checking in took nearly an hour. The front desk clerk left twice and attended to other matters at the motel. Thankfully, I'm patient and somewhat understanding since I travel often. But even this seemed a bit extreme. There is limited parking at the motel, so grab a spot and hang on to it for the duration. When we arrived nearly at midnight, there wasn't a spot available.

Excellent place to stay in St. Augustine. Very clean, staff is helpful. I felt very safe at this hotel as well since I was traveling solo. Is within walking distance of everything and has a great view of the bay. Made new friends in St. Augustine who visited my room and they stated this place was so much nicer than the one they were staying at (Days Inn) and much more up to date. Would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting.

Fantastic location overlooking the bay and within walking distance of all that historic St Augustine has to offer. Second floor rooms are preferable-- first floor smelled like mildew or had very strong air freshener smell. Beds & pillows are hard. Bathroom is TINY! Pool is nice. Rooms are clean but no frills.
