“I respectfully disagree with other reviewers!!”
Reviewed August 8, 2010

I recently stayed with my 2 teenage sons at the La Fiesta in a standard 2nd floor room with a view of the pool. I can only speak of the room quality and cleanliness of the Inn part of the property as opposed to the oceanview suites, which I did not see from the inside. Our room was small, and tired in need of a major renovation from paint to carpet to bedding to furniture to decor.
The beige blankets were worn, (I brought my own luckily) the window air conditioner was LOUD and smelled in need of a major cleaning. A glance at the coils and inside of the machine confirmed it. The bathroom is OK, recently remodeled apparently, but the door had black finger prints and just looked like it had not been cleaned thoroughly in quite some time.
Everything I touched had that sticky, rather grimy feel to it.... got the antibacterial wipes out.
I hate to be so hard on the place, as the employees were so friendly and helpful, but the room nearly spoiled my stay. . i did try to move for the 2nd night but the Hampton and Holiday Inn were both sold out. On the plus side, the pool was great, very clear water., and I saw the pool man each morning checking the chemicals.( I live in Florida and have a pool, I know what clean pool water looks like) The short walk down to the beach salvaged my experience there! We just stayed out of the room!
In summary, there are good and bad things about the place, but being a clean freak, I could just not get beyond the room, and would not be able to recommend it . Hope they remodel soon, they have a diamond in the rough, and a super location!

We are pleased to offer rooms in a variety of price ranges that accommodate a variety of budgets. Our annual maintenance and improvement program is all year long with painting, carpeting and upgrading of furnishings to include all room types.

La Fiesta is well known as a very clean Inn. As a courtesy to our guests we use products that have an antibacterial base which with our summertime humidity may in some cases have a different touch.

Most of our air conditioners are new and very quiet but all are cleaned on a regular basis as are our filters. A maintenance person is available 24 hours a day should a guest encounter anything that may need attention. Our # 1 goal is to please our guests.

Our heated pool is the largest in the area and we thank you for your comments about our sparkling clean pool water and great ocean front location.

Thank you to Cheryl for giving us the ocean view suite (two floors, jacuzzi...awesome) after a rather rough night. As can happen in all hotels, my wife and young son were kept up late by a few twenty-somethings who had had a bit too much too drink. In the morning, and with a mind to leaving and never returning, the manager gave us the best suite in the place - including a wonderful breakfast - for the basic rate that we had been paying. After a few peaceful hours looking over the ocean from our second florr balcony, I was not only in better spirits, I was very grateful for the fine treatment and care.
Thanks again.

We are glad that you enjoyed your upgrade to a suite. We are fortuate to have a wonderful staff that will try very hard to correct any situation that is brought to our attention. La Fiesta is known as a very quiet Inn that caters to guests who enjoy a restful and relaxing experience. Should any guest make unreasonable noise, we always make sure they quiet down or they must leave. Cheryl on our front desk does a wonderful job of making guests happy. We hope to see you soon.

My two night stay was very nice and accomodating. My seventeen year old daughter and I were very pleased. The staff were very friendly and very attentive to our needs. The rooms were very nice and clean. The pictures on internet are not deceiving. It is what it is.

We picked La Fiesta because of the Ocean Suites - hard to find on St. Augustine Beach without advance reservations. The room came with a jacuzzi tub - extra $ - however, as soon as the water level reached the jets out came algae and gunk. Shower time. Other nice features - a nice path to the beach, a lovely pool (very large), and breakfast served in the room. The balcony had a limited beach view - the hotel has clear access to the beach but is not directly on the sand. We picked up pizza and a bottle of wine and enjoyed the balcony. The miniature golf facility next door is great for families. Garbage trucks pick up early in the morning from the commercial area so we did not get to sleep late that morning. We requested breakfast between 8:30 am and 9 am on the order form. (You pick 3 items from a limited list.) At 9 we got a phone call that there was a delay. No big deal, it was delivered a bit later. The freshly baked scone and muffin were wonderful and filling. My husband said the egg and sausage patty was far better than it looked. Coffee is available in the room as well as the lobby. Cereal is also available in the lobby in the morning. The a/c worked well and overall the large room was nice with a very comfortable bed.

The staff was very warm and welcoming to us from start to finish. We stayed in the Bed & Breakfast and the place was fantastic. We also enjoyed the fact that it was only over 21 and that made it great to enjoy quiet time as well as the pool. Breakfast was very well organized and the food was great. Only complaint I had, the bed was alittle soft for me, but it didn't make my stay any less than wonderful. We will definitely be back.

Great Location! Spur of the moment getaway for hubby & I. Short walk to the beach where we spent most of our time...even though it was hot there was an incredible steady breeze on the beach & the water was great. Very charming and clean hotel! Beautiful landscaping! Short drive to great resturants, grocery store and tourist attractions. All in all...very accomodating! Wish we could have stayed longer!!!

Rooms are extremely musty smelling with sand imbeded in the carpet. Otherwise room was only an "ok" rating. Not worth the price we paid. Make sure you are up front on the price of the room because they will give you a different price when you check in. The worst manners I have ever seen with a hotel manager. She acted like there was no other competition in the area. Will not be back.

We realize that good customer service is what differentiates us from other hotel properties which are why we as Owners hire friendly staff, which are knowledgeable of the area and keep the customer our # 1 priority.

When a guest checks in to La Fiesta Ocean Inn & Suites, the rate plus the check-in and check-out dates are printed on the guest sign in sheet and that is one area that we point out to the guest and have the guest initial. We charge only the rate that is acknowledged on the sign in sheet.

We have a few room types where we just have one of them so when guests reserve them they expect that room type to be available to check in upon arrival. Sometimes a late checkout can be extended to a guest when requested in advance and when a reservation is not arriving for that specific room.

Now and then people decide to extend their stay longer than their check-in sheet promised them that particular room would be available and they do so without informing the desk then they leave their belongings in the room and venture out to enjoy the many sights in our area.

When we also have an incoming reservation who is expecting that particular room we are placed in an awkward situation and make every attempt to reach the guest who has remained in the room on their cell phone but sometimes we are not able to reach them to move them to another room before the incoming guest arrives and before housekeeping leaves and we must move the incoming guest.

When the guest who has remained in the room returns at 3 or 4 pm and housekeeping has left for the day we must charge that guest for another night but of course they can stay the night until 11 am the next day.

We try very hard to accommodate all of our guests in every way but sometimes we are put in such a position where we are required to take certain actions to satisfy an incoming guest with a reservation for a room with certain specifications such as a handicapped room.

We do not take any customer for granted and we always treat guests with respect. Our goal continues to be to keep our guests our number one priority so they may enjoy our oceanfront location, wonderful rooms, delicious delivered breakfasts and friendly staff.
