Although this hotel is rather tired & dated.. The room was clean & the continental breakfast was a bonus. However I do prefer drinking my tea from a real cup, not a polystyrene one ... The staff were really cheerful & friendly. 24 hr tea & coffee available in reception which was really appreciated as there was no kettle in the room. The room size was very large enough, room for our suitcases & a small table & chairs ...We paid for the Red Train Trolley Tour from Ripley's believe it or not which is just up the road from The Howard Johnson. As my partner is over 55 we got one ticket full price $22.99 & one ticket for $10 for 3 days.The red Train also picks up from the car park at H.J,( whilst showing visitors the 600 yr old Oak tree called the Old Senator) Which on a rainy day like we had it was very convenient ... The Location is great & it is easy to walk everywhere.

Room Tip: We had an end corner room which was large

Newly renovated, one of the trolley stops, big courtyard for parking, best take out pizza at Tonys across the street, St. Augustine, FL location. Best price ever. We are looking to stay at other hojos along our driving trip from Maine to Florida.

Clean room and courteous staff at a convenient location and a great price - we enjoyed the easy walk to the fort an all the other sites to see in St. Augustine. Although the property is aging, the room was very clean and the bed very comfortable.

Did not expect too much but was pleasantly surprised. Yes, everything needs updating, but beds were good & place was clean. We had to ask for the coffee in the room to be replenished more than once as housekeeping didn't do a good job of checking that, but location was great for us. We enjoyed the 1-mi. walk into town & after 1 round on the trolley found we didn't need to use it. Pleased that breakfast was available til 10:00 a.m. rather than 9:00, & heater was quiet when we needed to use it.

Room Tip: New roof being installed. Heard one couple asking for a room change because construction noise kept...
