“GREAT LOCATION + CLEAN ROOMS + GREAT RATE = GREAT VACATION!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2007

We stayed at the Regency Inn & Suites from May 19th-24th, 2007. I was a bit hesitant about booking but the low rates ($59.50/night weekdays) and location swayed me. We stayed in room 102 and couldn't have been happier with it. It was a very clean non-smoking room and did not smell of smoke, which is the way it should be. They had maid service every day and they were even taking the lamp shades off and dipping them in cleaning solution to freshen them up. All amenities (mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, air conditioning) worked fine and were clean. The lobby was also clean and the front desk people were very professional and friendly. The Continental breakfast consisted of ; toast (white or wheat) with jelly and spread, Cheerios, Frosted Flakes, bananas, apples, assorted pastries, mini muffins, do-nuts, coffee and milk. The juices offered were orange, grapefruit and cranberry. They have an indoor pool only, no outdoor one. It seemed very clean but I never saw anyone in it. It's in a nice, quiet area. I felt very safe at all times and there were no strange looking people hanging out and no loud partying or noises. It's located across the street from the beach access which has a large pavilion type structure and lots of sand volleyball courts. There is also a pier there. The beach was not crowded when we were there but isn't very wide and is probably congested in the peak season. Get there early or go down to Anastasia State Park beach for $5 a car load. It's very clean and wide. Watch out for the cross walks! Pedestrians have the right of way and the police WILL stop you if you don't adhere to this state law. If you want to do the carriage horse thing in town it costs $80 or $85 for about an hour or so ride but if you wait until dusk or near dusk you can get it for $60. St Augustine was a quaint and beautiful little town with lots of little things to do.

  • Liked — Wonderful location-accross the street from the beach
  • Disliked — No outdoor pool

The clerk was very friendly and helpful. There was mildew in the bathroom. There was no internet access in the room. The upstairs neighbors were noisy, sounding like a herd of elephants, walking around the room until the wee hours. The breakfast bar was okay.

We spent 2 weeks here and were perfectly satisfied: good location, clean, nice people, functional and quiet. Indoor heated swimming pool was a plus. I was a bit worried because of a bad review by another traveller but it was obviously a person with a bad attitude. Breakfast , though abundant, could be improved a bit ( some fiber-rich cereals, maybe ?). All in all great value for the money. My only complaint is with hotels.com which was overcharging us , their guarantee of the lowest price notwithstanding. They had charged us 30 % more in Euros by applying a 1:1 instead of 1:1,30 rate of exchange. So fellow Europeans beware of what hotels.com is charging you .

Stayed February 2007

Beautiful rooms, new & clean. The staff was wonderful. Especially Jackie who helped us out when our originally planned "stay" across the street at the St. Augustine Beachfront Resort went south. Beware of that dump! We are definately staying at the Regency Inn in 2007 when our vacation rolls around.

  • Liked — Everything
  • Tips/Secrets — The pier and ocean is only across the street. We could watch it from our room.

Terrible. Dingy and dirty. There are so many better places to stay in St. Augustine on the beach. It really is a shame as the location is good, but the property management and upkeep is sorely lacking.

this place is a nasty dump. And for the man that works the desk what poor customer service , I am glad he does not work for me! He was no help at all and the stains on the sheets topped it all off. I checked out the same night I checked in. Check out some other hotels on the street.

Just got back from a week there. The hotel was pretty much as expected, based on reviews here. It's not a 4-star resort, but it's in good shape for a beach hotel. Everything was well maintained and clean. The building has obviously been remodelled in the past few years.

The carpet was a bit dirty and turned the bottom of the kids' feet black after running around for a while. The bathroom was clean and mildew-free, but if it were my house, I'd have wanted to replace the worn bathtub fixtures. The room had a minifridge and a microwave, which worked well. The hair dryer was a little flakey and didn't want to run for more than a few minutes at a time.

The room had the typical motel individual air conditioner mounted under the window. I hate those units, because the only way to effectively cool the room is to freeze the one person that sleeps closest to it. But this hotel certainly isn't the only one to use them.

The indoor pool turned out to be a big plus. It's small, but we were almost always the only people in it. It's a great way to get out of the sun and cool down after walking back from the beach. Since it's heated (when needed), it would probably be busy in the colder winter months. There was a shower and towels at the side of the pool, which also helped clean up after walking back from the beach.

The hotel is in an ok location. It's behind a gas station / convenience store, which we were a little worried about, but it's well separated by a wall and only adjoins the office / pool area, not where the rooms are located. It's also next to a storage lot, so you can see the tops of tractor/trailers and boats over the north wall. But on other sides of the property, you've got $300,000 condos and a more expensive resort.

It's directly across from the big pier, which makes a great sunrise or after dark walk. It's almost exactly one quarter mile from the lobby to the water's edge, a walk that even my kids didn't seem to mind.

We used the small laundry room while we were there and both the washer and dryer worked fine and were kept pretty clean.

The daily free continental breakfast went over well with the kids and saved us $5-10 a day. I believe there was free wireless internet at least in the lobby, but we didn't use it.
