“southern comfort at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

The motel has the right name! When I booked the room, I was impressed and was not disappointed when we arrived, The location is great. It is close to everything for that area. When we arrived, the staff was very friendly, helpful, ( going that extra mile), pleasant atmosphere, and willing to do for us to help our stay pleasurable. The breakfast was outstanding. Totally home-made and delicious. The room was very comfortable and clean. The manager was extra helpful with anything we ask. I recommend this motel if you want to stay in this area. The staff, service, and comfort was excellent.

Room Tip: very quite and comfortable

My wife and I enjoy getting away to St. Augustine, and have now found our new weekend home. Currently 50% through a complete remodel, Southern Oaks is your best choice in town. The rooms are clean with beautiful hardwood floors and ceramic tiled bathrooms. The toilets and tub/showers are new, as are all of the faucets. New beds, TV's, refrigerators, 10 cup coffee-makers, and modern and very stylish furnishings make this a wonderful experience. While the Inn is not new, yo wouldn't know it from the cleanliness and outward appearance. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The included breakfast was more than you will find in most hotels. Our stay was on a Friday night (Valentine's Day) and was all that we could ask for.

The staff is super friendly, super clean rooms, love the location, the breakfast is delicious. I could not believe how clean everything was love the place. I will be recommending this to all my friend and family. Trolley stops at the hotel which was a huge bonus. The rooms are all newly renovated, very quiet and welcome atmosphere. I really did enjoy my stay.

We spent valentines weekend here and had a great time! The staff is fabulous! The rooms are very comfortable. They are renovating and they only place guests in rooms that have been recently remodeled. The water pressure is not the best but it is doable. The beds are extremely comfortable. The staff made sure we had everything we needed and even left fresh baked cookies in our room for arrival.

Room Tip: These rooms are newly renovated and the beds are very comfortable.

Just wanted to leave a review for any who are searching for a true pet friendly hotel in the St. Augustine area. We were very pleased with the location, cleanliness, and hospitality of this hotel. It's not a fancy looking place on the outside but the rooms are very nice! They have been recently remodeled and have wooden floors which I believe helps in the cleanliness of the rooms (they do not smell "pet friendly"). Others have commented on their extra blankets smelling moldy. This was not the case for us. The extra blankets we had were the white heavy cotton ones and they smelled fresh. There may be other hotels that are pet friendly in St. Augustine. I cannot compare those with Southern Oaks because I haven't stayed at them but I will say that the staff and the grounds of this hotel truly are friendly to you and your pet. My family and I enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend this hotel!
