Howard Johnson Inn - Historic ST. Augustine FL
Ranked #63 of 78 Hotels in St. Augustine
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We were in town for the St. Augustine 1/2 marathon. This hotel was walking distance to the start line, less than $100 a night, and clean which is all I was looking for during this short stay. The room had some cosmetic wear/aging and an older tv, etc. but overall it was fine for a one or two night stay. You get what you pay for... It was what I expected it to be. There was free wifi and a continental breakfast - my daughter was happy with the bowl of fruit loops and my mom with the bagels. I was pleasantly surprised with the small refrigerator and microwave in the room. For this same type of event, I would stay here again.

I had a 2 day stay paid for and got unexpected military orders so I was unable to make the dates. Expedia was willing to give me a refund or switch the dates, but after calling this Howard Johnson, the request was denied. Though it was understood that I could fax/send a copy of my orders and simply wanted to change the dates, the hotel blatantly refused. Thanks for nothing, and great to know you support your troops.

Review of Howard Johnson St Augustine

Stayed here in November 2013 as a solo traveller for 3 nights. Check in was very fast and staff quite friendly. Lots of great parking here. The morning breakfast was simple but good. Easy access and the tourist tram stops directly in the parking lot, very convenient. Walking distance to old town of St.Augustine about 10 minute walk. Nice liquor store on property. Lots of good place to eat in walking distance. Very quiet and safe property.
I have to admit some problems. Yes its good budget property. My room by pool was smelly. after 1 day. And there were these small red ants crawling all over the place here.
I would stay here again. Good place for budget minded but needs some work though.

Room Tip: Good place to park and the tourist tram goes right here

We were there for two nights and wishing I was home.
What a dump. This place should be condemned.Even though the location was good
it was utterly discusting place. Beds uncomfortable, dingy, paper on the bathroom window, rust on the handles in the bathroom. A/C very noisy. STAY HOME!

Room Tip: Better to stay home...you might find bedbugs. Totally gross!
