Best Western Spanish Quarters Inn

Reviewed February 10, 2011

I chose this hotel for brand and location. It's only a block from the old city gates and cobblestone streets of historic Old Town. It's an older hotel, but very clean and well-kept. Because it's an older property, the rooms are smaller and it's the split-bathroom style where the sink/vanity is in the main room, while the toilet and tub/shower are in a separate little room. The beds were comfy and linens immaculate.

The hotel provides breakfast, which includes homemade waffles. The wi-fi was a little slow, but acceptable. The location was quiet at night. There was enough parking, but they add a $5 per night surcharge, which I find annoying. Why not just roll it into the room rate? All in all, we were very satisfied with this hotel and will stay there again on our next visit.

Please, do yourself a favor and avoid this hotel. The bug warnings in other reviews are real! Gross! And you know they've sprayed for the bugs--so are my kids playing in bug spray over everything? This is a run down, old hotel--avoid it.

We stayed here for a night, and got a discounted room ($59) on account of there only being a smoking room available. Room itself was a bit dated, with very noisy exhaust fan and close to the pool area which was also a bit noisy. We saw a couple of cockroaches, probably on account of the room being on the ground floor and close to moisture. But for the price, it was pretty good value, and within walking distance to the centre of St Augustine. We also got complimentary parking (normally $5) which was a plus. Front counter service was excellent. We didn't avail ourselves of the complimentary breakfast.

My wife and I stayed in several Best Western hotels whilst driving around Florida. This one was average but comfortable. We felt it was a little overpriced (although we were there on a Pirates' weekend) and we were surprised to find we were charged to park in the hotel's car park ($5 a night). The Town itself was fascinating. The hotel is situated 5 minutes away from the Old Town and about 3 minutes from the Waterfront. There is a Trolley stop opposite the hotel - 1 minute walk away. The beds were comfortable in reasonably sized rooms. There was an adequate complimentary breakfast, taken in a very small lounge next to reception, although watch out for the toaster - it kept blowing! There is no restaurant at this hotel but Barnacle Bill's next door was a good, basic seafood restaurant (also had a nice steak), reasonably priced with friendly staff.

I have stayed at more expensive places in St Augustine but we just wanted a room closer to downtown this time and not pay a lot. The room was clean and ready an hour early. I just wanted to park the car but they were ready for us. The five dollar charge for parking was not bad, have paid more at other places, Hilton charges over 15.00 a day. The room had comfy beds and great pillows. It was quiet and the desk clerk was very nice and gave us coupons for dinner. Good coffee in the am, not really a breakfast person but they seem to have a variety if you were. Great weekend and will return.

Driving into town (on a whim), on a Saturday night, we were happy to find this hotel to be exactly what we needed. Hotel staff was excellent. Location is excellent. Our room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast in the morning was probably one of the best "continental breakfasts" I've seen. The kids had waffles and cereal, while me an mom loaded up on the coffee and bagels. Internet access in the lobby was convenient.

First, let me say the staff was friendly and always helpful. The problem I had with this hotel was the charge of $5.00 each night to park in their lot. If you pay over $100.00 a night at an older hotel with outside entrance doors, you should not have to pay the extra charge. Also, if you plan on taking advantage of the continental breakfast, be prepared to squeeze into a very small room with other guests. Or like me, just grab coffee and go.
