“USAFSS Military Reunion 90+ people”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

This was our 6th annual USAFSS Reunion at this hotel. They are just wonderful.
The manager, Farid Ashdji, and his crew of many (Tat,i Marielena, Jayda, Debbie, Gary, Ryan, and more) are just fantastic. We couldn't ask for better treatment at a hotel. His crew of people, from front desk, reservations, to house keeping, are just superb. We will be there again in January of 2015 for our 7th reunion. Thanks to Farid and his great staff for a wonderful reunion again this year.

Dear Jay J,

What can I say! You guys were wonderful! We all had a fabulous time being a part of your reunion as well. We look forward to having you again next year and can't wait to show you all the amazing renovations we are working on. We are installing rose bushes for the gardens outside now and will start with all the 42 inch Flatscreen T.V's next week for every room. Thanks again for your stay and we are counting the days for Jan 2015!

Sincerely,

Marielena Scibelli

The staff was the most accomodating of any motel we have ever stayed out. We were there as part of a large group of Air Force veterans. The general manager, Fred, was the nicest and most hospitable of any manager that I have come into contact with. He went out of his way to ensure our stay was comfortable. Tati of the guest services team was amazing. She has such a pleasant personality and made us waffles every morning and brought them to our table. The motel is within walking distance of downtown and the attractions. I highly recommend this motel and look forward to staying there again.

Dear Guest,

Thank You for your recent stay at the Quality Inn Historic. I am so glad you had a wonderful trip with your reunion! The Free Hot Breakfast is a great bonus offered at choice hotels and at the Quality Inn Historic it is even more pleasant with Tatai and Fred helping everyone table side. They are a great team! You are right we are very centrally located and just a few short blocks from the historic district, maybe next time you can enjoy having a sightseeing trolley pick you up curbside and bring you downtown if you do not want to stroll down. Anyone from the front desk will be happy to call them and have you picked up as well. Just another amazing feature at the Quality Inn Historic! I will tell you we are excited to see you next year and are counting the days for your next reunion it was loads of fun!

Sincerely,

Marielena Scibelli

More for your money. First class staff service and more than continental breakfast! it was obvious that ownership and management wanted to cater to all cultures, races, and ages. My wife and I enjoyed our two nights stay poolside. Plenty of parking, ice machines full, located near enough to walk to some of the better restaurants. Staff attitudes always tells the reality of ownership approaches and training or lackthereof. This staff was SUPERB! Tati catered to clients to match needs to a smooth stay. Jayda made sure my rewards credits would be credited. The rooms were clean and even when I forgot to take my phone charger, our roommaid noticed and brought it to us before we left;. that could only occur with a cleaning crew disciplined to turn rooms over immediately.
Thank you Quality Inn Historic. Anytime i need to stay in St. Augustine, you can bet that I'll stay with you!!!

We only needed to stay one night in St. Augustine four days after Christmas. All the B&Bs and Inns were either booked or way too expensive for us. I first booked two nights through Expedia, and they charged me in advance. I later canceled the reservation as we needed only one night, instead of two. The hotel graciously re-booked us for the same room, same rate, but only one night. The Quality Inn was perfect. The seasonal rates were great, the room was clean, large enough, the central air conditioning was nice and quiet (unlike some places), and my husband was able to use one of their computers in the Business Center. We didn't have the comp breakfast, but from what we saw - it looked great. The staff was polite and helpful. No complaints at all.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor on the front of the building. Ponce de Leon has lots of noisy traffic, b...

Dear Guest,
I am so glad the Front Desk Team was able to help you the way they were. We at the Quality Inn Historic try very hard to make every guest feel welcome and special. Our breakfast is wonderful next time make sure you have time to enjoy our Free Hot Breakfast. We have a wonderful team there every morning between Tatai making the waffles fresh for everyone and our owner telling jokes tableside the experience is an A+. We look forward to you staying at the hotel again in the future. Thanks again

Located on US-1 along the northern approach to St. Augustine,15-20 minute walk to the historic sights.

Traveled with my girlfriend for a short overnight stay. We had problems with the electronic key card. After unsuccessfully programming the key card twice, front-desk had to let us in using the master key.

Our room was clean with average standard.

Complimentary breakfast served on plastic plates and cutlery, I expect more and healthier options. Hostess did a great job though. Denny's and McDonald's restaurant across the street for even worse breakfast.

Free parking
Free continental breakfast
Free WiFi (no password required)
Swimming pool

Stayed one day, early January.
Double Room, 2 Double Beds, Non Smoking
Rate $75 inc. tax (booked same day)

Would consider repeat business for overnight stay should I return to St. Augustine.

Room Tip: Rooms facing west may experience inconvenience from the nearby railroad. We stayed in the eastern wi...
