“Great Staff and Good Location”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I love staying close to the beach so when looking that was high on my priority list. This hotel is located just about a block from the beach, just across the street and down one of the beach access streets and you're there at the Atlantic Ocean.

The hotel is about "mid strip" on A1A Beach Blvd with lots of shops and restaurants up and down the strip. There is a Publix at the southern end and the weekly Farmer's market is about a quarter mile north and is there every Wednesday. The Old Town Trolley Beach Bus (recommended) stops right in front of the hotel and provides an easy access to Downtown St. Augustine and you won't have to worry about parking....The tickets for the Trolley can be bought at the front desk and they are good for 3 days...

My room was clean, nice sized, the bed was comfortable and included a small refrigerator (no freezer) and microwave. Relatively quiet and comfortable. Decent breakfast included with cold cereal, hot entree, fruit, yogurt, make your own waffles.

The staff was excellent...I called a few days before I arrived to inquire about things to do and was given a good list of things. When I arrived I was checked in early and asked for directions to the Lincolnville Farmers Market. She cheerfully gave me direction and pointed out a few spots of interest. The manager helped me catch the Beach Bus (it blew right by me on the first run) and offered to chase after the bus if it passed me again. The staff was cheerful in going about their rounds (housekeeping, maintenance, laundry) and were smiling constantly. They even offered excellent dinner suggestions for one.

I would definitely recommend this location to anyone coming to St. Augustine and wanting to stay at the beach...it's easy access into downtown and you're at the beach!

Room Tip: I had a front facing room....good view - light traffic.

We were in St.Augustine for an over night visit in Jan. 2013. The room was ready when we got there. It was very clean and comfortable. We asked for extra towels and they were more than happy to give us plenty. The beds were comfortable and the hotel and grounds were quiet. I think we got a great value for our money. They had a free breakfast, that was well stocked and fresh.

Room Tip: The hot tub is really hot. Takes a while to get used to it.

My wife and I chose this location to celebrate our 30th anniversary and we were overwhelmed at our suite. The suite consisted of a full kitchen, very spacious living room with French doors that opened to a balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, a huge bedroom with the most comfortable king size bed, and a bath with both a shower and a full sized tub with jets. And to top it off, all for $69.99. What a bargain. We have always stayed at Best Western establishments because, even in my 11 years of military service, they have never let us down. This place is neat, clean, the service was first rate. The lady at checkin was so pleasant and accommodating. We really felt at home and were treated very special. We will always remember this special occasion and thanks for the memories that Best Western Seaside Inn made possible. Now on to another 30 wonderful years with my gal.

This was a nice hotel, even though we only stayed one night.

Our room was comfortable, a reasonable size and unlike a previous reviewer, we had no problems connecting to the internet. Comfortable bed and pillows and a decent shower/tub combination.

The breakfast room was very small and filled quickly, but there was a reasonable selection to choose from. Most of the guests took their breakfast back to their rooms.

Incorrectly called "Seaside Inn", as it is not even beside the beach. Access to the beach is across the road and down a narrow laneway. That was our only criticism of otherwise a comfortable and quiet stay.

Found the place to be lovely. Only thing, the noise of cars since its an open style. We stayed one night and I found the room in perfect condition. Kudos to the maids! The room is simple, but functional. No closet, just a simple hanger. The breakfast was good. The waffle, in strawberry or regular flavors. Yogurt, fruit, fresh juice, but no water.

Thank you for your comments and i am glad you enjoyed your stay . We normally have lemon water out during summer and then during winter we put out hot chocolate but is something we will reintroduce all year round.
Thank you again.
