I booked a night prior to looking at this hotel. I spent 234 dollars after taxes. When i showed up i was shocked. The hotel charges 4 star prices but only offers 1 star service. Please check this hotel out first before you spend your money. Hotel front desk seemed bothered that i was there. The main reason why I gave this hotel such a low rating was quality compared to cost of room.

I am sorry that our guest felt that our hotel was not worth the price that they paid for a one night stay, but Ocean Blue Motel II's rates were not that high in May and have never been that high even for a Jacuzzi room or a Suite on a holiday weekend. We offer a very good value, our rooms are all ocean view rooms with private balconies and they are exceptionally clean, and our staff is very accomodating.

Stayed 3 nights, great, relaxing, has beach and historic location. Wonderful experience, staff is outstanding. They are pet friendly. Great place to go to get away from it all. We can't say enough about our experience at the Ocean Blue 11. Highly recommended.

I stayed here 3 days around Christmas with my dogs. This is a pet-friendly motel. Vilano Beach is within walking distance so you can walk the pets on the beach - as well as drive your car there. All rooms have a patio balcony with ocean view. Vilano Beach is more secluded than staying in St. Augustine and you don't have to deal with parking issues. Highly recommended.

I just returned from a 3-day Christmas holiday at this place in Vilano Beach. It is secluded from the downtown noisy and congested St. Augustine environment (especially during Christmas) yet only a short drive from all attractions.
Main reason I stayed here is that it is pet-friendly and a perfect place to walk your dogs to the beach nearby.
Rooms have mini-fridge and coffee maker.
I was so glad I stayed here (rather than downtown) as parking anywhere in the historic area is horrible! I liked the seclusion at night - very quiet!
Highly recommend especially if you have pets.

I stayed at the Ocean Blue 2 hotel 2 yrs now in a row and absolutely love it. The view of the ocean is Awesome and the management is very accomodating and nice. Each room has there own private balcony overlooking the ocean. There is plenty to do all around and a great restaurant right on the ocean that has awsome seafood, plus they are now in the process of adding wireless internet which I"m excited about. So if your ever around St. Augustine Florida, give the Ocean Blue 2 Hotel a go.

The motel and the service were superb, they accomadated our whole group of euchre players with grace and poise. The rooms were very clean and spacious. And I just love the balconey views of the ocean. Anytime I am in Florida this is where I will be going.
