“Very nicely done!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

4 of us traveled to St Aug from West Coast of Fl last weekend. This Boutique Hotel has done a great job in providing a really nice level of comfort. We had two rooms, my parents were impressed. Beds are comfortable and the floors are so nice, clean, let me say it. Sanitary!!!
And the staff was helpful and responsive. Thx Brandon for all you did for us, I had 3 90+ yr olds w/me.

Room Tip: be patient, as the computer was slow, and we arrived when there were others checking in too

Green Features: they ask for consideration in usage of water/towels. great job

We planned an impromptu trip to St. Augustine with a friend who would meet us there and looked at several hotel and B&B options. They were SO expensive this time of year and we couldn't justify spending more than $600 for a weekend trip where we knew we'd be touring the sites most of the time.

We found Jaybird's Inn via TripAdvisor and the nice looking rooms and positive reviews sold us. It was exactly what I was expecting- newly renovated rooms in a building going through extensive renovations. The management is still working on many updates and there's construction around, but the rooms were exactly as they appeared online, were extremely clean and the beds were comfortable! After two days of walking around in hot, humid weather, the hotel was a great resting place. Once they complete the renovations and have all the ammenities up and running it will be a leading boutique hotel in the area, for sure!

Also, breakfast at the Jaybird's Cafe really IS good! We had breakfast there and loved it. Enjoy your stay!

Stayed one night with my family while passing through SA. I thought the Jaybird was a terrific value. The rooms are very nice and super comfortable. The service at check-in was outstanding, the staff was very polite and helpful. The discount for breakfast at the restaurant next door made the value even better. There was a lot of work being done to the motel but no inconvenience to guests and the improvements look great. We would absolutely stay again, and will the next time we are that way.

We decided to give Jaybird's Inn a try based on the positive reviews in trip advisor.
Unfortunately we were disappointed. We are very open minded when it comes to lodging. We have stayed in nice places and not so nice places. Unfortunately here it wasn't about the rooms which we loved it was more about the bad experience.

The good: the rooms are FANTASTIC. Big rooms, no carpet, a sofa, big flat tv, microwave, fridge, nice fixtures.

The bad: we were very concerned about the clientele.

Note: They advertise free continental breakfast but you only receive a $5 voucher for the restaurant (which was very good by the way) but if you were budgeting for free breakfast then this is important to consider.

We stayed at Jaybird's for 1 night to enjoy St. Augustine after a week at the beach. The accommodations were very clean and new and the rate was great. You must try the restaurant. Can't wait to stay again next year after the remodel is finished. We will be back!!!!!

I came across the reviews of Jaybird's Inn and used Bookings.com. Our trip had to be delayed and the staff was very accommodating with our date changes. They are still undergoing remodeling phase and that could be seen in parts of the lobby area. From our end of the hotel, you would have never known....very clean and quiet. Rooms are as you see in the pics with a modern feel and spacious. Everything you need from coffee maker, iron, mini fridge and microwave are at your fingertips. We had a king bed that was very comfy with a couch in the room. The table area was great for meals or when I had to jump on the computer -- free in-room WiFi, by the way. The Jaybird's Restaurant has an excellent selection of food as well and is right across the street. On the other side of US1 is a CVS (open 24 hrs) and a Walgreens. This was great for us & as a last minute late night run for snacks -- though there is also a vending machine onsite. I would definitely stay at Jaybirds again and plan to add it as a stopping point on my travels through Florida.

Room Tip: South side of the building faces an interior street and is directly across from the restaurant.
