The proximity to the beach is the best location feature of this hotel. A quick one minute walk leads to a boardwalk that spans some very lovely wetlands/salt marsh areas on the way to the beach, native plant and animal species can be observed from the walkway. Once on the boardwalk, the beach is a 5 minute walk in. Signs telling visitors about access times are posted and clearly written, and one should have no problem getting in and out of the beach. The hotel itself is clean, the smell of curry that some visitors complained about was quite welcoming and pleasant, giving the mom and pop feel to the lobby. People who use rooms or a hotel as a base while exploring the many nearby attractions both natural and man made will find this hotel meets all their REAL traveling needs. The hallways and rooms, and the building and its systems/facilities were well maintained and clean. The pool in the rear of the hotel was clean and welcoming after a day on the beach. Brochures and pamphlets about local activities and restaurants were plentiful, as this is hotel is on the island, a short cab ride into town is the only real way to get there. Some local eateries and shops are within walking distance, and a shopping center, which should serve most visitors' needs is a quick 5 minute walk away. The next time I return to St. Augustine, for surfing, food, the historical downtown area, and the great weather, I would for sure stay at this hotel.
