Made reservation at this hotel on relatively short botice because it's advertised as being in the Saint Augustine Historic District. At best it's on the outskirts, not walking distance, about a 10-minute drive. That's the least of my complaints.
We had a queen suite with a jacuzzi.
The hotel is in desperate need of updating/renovation. The furnishings were very old, shabby and mismatched. The room smelled musty. The hotel has no elevator (only 2 levels, but still...)
Only 5 of the 10 lightbulbs about the double sinks were lit. Since we didn't want to be disturbed by maintenance, my husband went to the front desk to request replacement bulbs and was given 2. Seriously!! Hotel management actually rations light bulbs!
The door to our room was sticking horribly and required a great deal of force to open and close.
The bi-fold closet doors couldn't be closed because they were off-track.
The shower control was not working properly; my husband fixed it himself.
The hotel is seriously overpriced for its location; since we weren't familiar with the area, we made a reservation that was not in the part of town we wanted to be in. False advertising (historic district) as far as I'm concerned. Stay here at your own risk!
