By calling this average, I'm not meaning that there is anything wrong with it - in fact it's a good example of everything that can be right about this sort of hotel chain. You know what you're getting (clean room, comfortable beds,generally OK experience), and this place certainly delivers on all that. But that's about it really. Very friendly staff, and if St Augustine wasn't quite so hot and sticky it would be an easy walk to all the major downtown attractions. There's a fair sized swimming pool, but it almost never seemed to be in the shade which, with a hot sun shining into it, rather limits its usefulness. And don't get excited about the prospect of this hotel having a sort of restaurant. I say sort of because the dinner menu doesn't extend beyond microwaved dishes and essentially provides fast food. So, an average Holiday Inn. Nothing to write home about, but a comfortable enough place to stay. And it has free parking.
