Rooms are old and bathroom is very small. It's a good value if you just want a place to sleep. The free breakfast is ok just cereal, juice, and breads. It will fill you until lunch. We would go there again if we are staying for one night.

We would stay at the St. Augustine HOJO again. While not the nicest of hotels, for the price it was adequate and the location was quite convenient. You can walk to the Fountain of Youth, the old jail, and several museums. Best of all, both of the cities trolleys stop on the premises. The free continental breakfast was weak at best (plain oatmeal, cold cereals, toast/bagels, overcooked hard boiled eggs, apples/oranges... but missing other cold breakfast essentials such as yogurt and bananas). We chose to eat breakfast out after the first morning's disappointment. Our room was clean and contained a few bonus amenities (fridge/microwave/coffee pot). The staff was friendly and accommodating towards our entire family (we had three separate rooms). Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention that there is a liquor store attached to the hotel property with phenomenal prices. Have wine, beer, and liquor next door whenever we wanted some made for a nice vacation perk.

The room was clean and the staff very pleasant. The location is convenient to some attractions, like the Fountain of Youth and a shrine. There is fast food dining within easy walking distance, and it's really easy to get into St. Augustine for the more upscale restaurants. The breakfast is basic, but decent, and includes orange juice, apples and oranges. I had earlier stayed at a more upscale hotel where everything cost extra. Here, the wifi and parking are free, as well as the breakfast, so that's a large saving. There was even a microwave and small refrigerator in the room, and that can lead to huge savings. And a washer and dryer are available during the day.

Room Tip: My room was toward the back, near the pool, so noise was not an issue.

This was the second time I have stayed at this Inn. And each time I feel that it was a very good choice. We were walking distance to about everything and what we were not close to the Trolley had a stop right in the parking lot so we rode the Trolley.
Our room was clean and we enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Good location, comfortable rooms. Breakfast was very basic, not as good as comparable hotels we have stayed in.
