“Great Place To Stay For Walking Around...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This was an excellent location for walking around. It is just kitty corner of the Fort and all the shops were right behind us. We had a great room with 2 queen beds, very clean, and smell free. The bathroom is small, but it served its purpose. The air conditioner is kind of in a weird place, near the bathroom against the back wall, but fear not, it worked just fine keeping the room nice and chilly. Outside each room there were 2 chairs to sit an watch the world go by. This BW does not have a place to eat, but right next door is Mary's and it is great for breakfast. They do have 2 computers in the main lobby if you need them. The staff was very nice and the cleaning people did a great job, cleaning and restocking us. In the room is a very small single serve coffee pot, the coffee by the way was good. They did supply us with small bottles of shampoo, body lotion, mouth wash, and soap. The room (#122), right near the pool, was very quiet at night and the place was packed. I would suggest parking early in one of the regular spots up against the rooms, so that you don't get stuck with parking in the middle, it can be crazy. We parked as soon as we arrived which was early, maybe 12ish, and our room wasn't ready, but they gave us a yellow paper to display in our windshield, and we were all set to leave our car there and start walking around to come back and check in later, worked out perfect.

I would definitely stay here again. To me it was the perfect little spot without spending a ton of money.

Pleasantly surprised as I was just passing by the town and didn't expect much from the hotel nut the rooms were nice and the beds were comfortable. Carlos was very nice and helpful at check in. Nice restaurants near by, close to everything. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in a great location with a great view. However, if you are looking for piece and quite this is not the place for you. The bar noise at night is a little loud. But the hotel is great, very clean and updated. Priced very reasonable for location. I will stay there again.

This is an excellent location, but the hotel is has-been. The rooms are tiny and you are throwing the dice when it comes to getting an acceptable room. If you experience a problem, don't expect resolution promptly, if at all. Clearly, there is no proactive approach to maintaining excellence.

Good location. Totally enhanced our visit to St Augustine, Florida. Easy access and in a good part of town. Excellent restaurants in the area.

We are so glad we picked this location! It was just across the street from the Castillo De san marco. We were only in Saint Augustine for two days, but ate breakfast and dinner by the bay one day. The staff was friendly, the room was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again when visiting this beautiful city!
