We stayed here just one night, but will definitley be back. The location is magnificient. Open the "back" door to the motel room and walla, 2 rocking chairs with the beautiful Bridge of Lions right there. We watched the boats, the draw bridge go up and down and saw dolphins playing right in front of us. It is an older motel but very clean. Breakfast is nothing but some packaged muffins, but the view is worth it.

Room Tip: we had a king room with water view.

This is the best kept secret in St Augustine. This is a privately owned and operated mom and pop operation that is a step back in time to the 50's. No internet, or fancy services here, but it is neat and clean and has location, location, location! There is one unit that is a 1 bedroom apt, and then the rest are 2 dbl bed or queen bed rooms with a back door out to a covered porch with rockers to each room that overloooks the Matanzas Bay and the spectacular St Augustine skyline, and Castillo De San Marco fort! This motel is not updated, but only maintained as is because of strict buisness codes set by the city of St Augustine. When this family decides to close up shop, there will be no more commercial property at this site. Waah, because it is right next to the Bridge of Lions which spells easy walking access to the old city tourism sites, restaurants, etc... It's great because it eliminates the cost and hassle of parking in the Old City. The prices vary depending on the season, but are comparitvely very reasonable year round because of the lack of amenities, however, there is a pool on the premisis, and parking the old motor inn style right at your room door. This is our favorite place to stay for the view, convenience and price. It truly is one of the best kept secrets in St Auggie!

Room Tip: The A frame room is unique, and there is a 1 bedroom apt with a full kitchen, living room and dining...

This was our second visit to Edgewater Inn. The position is unrivalled and its great to sit with a glass of wine on the riverside porch and watch the sunset over St. Augustine. Rooms exceptionally clean. Nice pool. Now - the downside! The reception is not always manned. We arrived during 'posted hours' which had been confirmed in our booking - to find the office closed and a cell number to call to find how to get into our rooms! Unfortunately the owners had not given any thought to foreign visitors (we're British) without cell phones! Luckily a fellow guest came to our rescue and loaned us their cell! The in-room coffee allowance is also a bit tight - only allowing one coffee each - which, given that no-one opened reception until close to 9.30 am - where the coffee and muffins should have been was not great. By the time we left at close to 10 am, there was still no coffee made in the office.
We saw someone pull up outside the office in the evening, look at the empty office and drive off. Given that the hotel was less than half full, what a shame.
Still a great place to stay and will be back (with our own tea/coffee!!!)

Room Tip: Always get a riverside room if available!

My girlfriend and I stayed here on 10/20/2011-10/22/2011. We thought it had a great location because of the view and the short pretty walk over the Bridge Of Lions to Downtown shops and restaurants. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The rooms are a little dated but very clean. We would love to return to such a wonderful weekend vacation.

There are a lot of hotels in Edgewater, but this one is the nicest. It's just across the bridge, so the windows have a fantastic view of the water and the city. Not as much traffic as staying in the hub. When you go outside, there is rocking chairs right on the water. I already said this, but it is so beautiful at night with the water and city lights. There is not really much of a "beach"-some sand-but a very nice deck. The continental breakfast is mainly some muffins. Here's a food tip: Eat at the Bunnery! They have huge chocolate croissants, tea, coffee, cinammon rolls, and are located downtown. This place really is fantastic.

Room Tip: Get a room ON the water!

We love this hotel! It's the classic old motel style with rooms opening up right onto the parkling lot and a pool out front by the road, but the rooms have back doors opening onto a deck overlooking the water and old St. Augustine. The location is great and the price is reasonable. we will stay here again.

A friend of ours recommended the Edgewater Inn to us. I have to say, what an amazing “Old Florida” hotel! You could not ask for a better view in St Augustine. The rooms are a bit old but they are superbly clean. I recently returned from a business trip in Vegas where I paid $300+/night for a room that couldn’t hold a candle to the Edgewater. The bathroom and room itself were the cleanest I have stayed in. I also had no problem with the wireless in the rooms. I read some other reviews that experienced slow connection but I was able to access it for work with no problem. The one and only negative is that they are not in the office a whole lot. Sunday I decided to extend my stay for one more night; the sign on the front office said they were open Sunday from 9am-4pm. I tried calling and returning to the hotel several times on Sunday during those hours. My call was returned Monday morning when I was at work … Other than that for the money, you can’t beat it as a place to stay. I will only there from now on when I visit St Augustine!
