In the past my wife and I always stayed at another hotel when visiting this area of Florida but the last time we visited our stay was less than ideal. And so I searched online in order to try to find a new home base when visiting America's oldest city. As with all of my reviews I will provide the Pros, the Cons, and a Summary for you to make a better informed decision.
This place is obviously well managed. I make this statement because of how apparent it is. From the clean atmosphere, the professional attitudes of every employee encountered, and how welcomed we were made to feel, it was clear to me that the management understands that they have competition. And if they want the business they must earn it.
The room was up-to-date and extremely comfortable. From the bedding to the TV and Internet everything in our room worked flawlessly and added to the overall stay/experience.
The place was quiet - extremely quiet. This even though it was full. We were not disturbed at all hours by slamming doors or rude people talking in the halls.
The breakfast was actually amazing and served to add to the value.
The pool area looked inviting but it was a bit too cool to enjoy it; maybe next time.
There is a Denny's right next door as well as some other restaurants that can be reached safely and easily on foot. This becomes even more important when you see how busy Highway 16 really is.
The highway this hotel is on can be EXTREMELY busy. And this can make getting around a bit of a challenge.
I wasn't offered a receipt of any kind when I checked out. I thought this was a little odd and I am certain I could have obtained one on request but it was a bit unusual from my experience.
The workout room has a window that faces the lobby. Unless you want to workout with literally everyone in the lobby watching, you won't like this one. In my book that window serves no purpose.
The pros FAR outweigh the cons and this is our new "go to" place when we head to St. Augustine. As I said it is well maintained, safe, and comfortable. And it certainly seemed "new" even though it actually isn't.
Kudos to the management team and employees for taking such pride and for making this such an awesome place to stay!
