Best Western St. Augustine Beach Inn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 18, 2014

I met an old friend in St Augustine for a relaxed long weekend. We spent a lot of time at the hotel, catching up. This hotel completely met all our needs. The room was clean and pleasant, and larger than expected. The beds were soft and cozy. It was quiet.The water pressure was good. The staff was very nice, warm and hospitable. The "continental breakfast" included eggs, waffles, and sausage as well as assorted fruit, toast, bagels, danish and cereals (hot and cold) and coffee, teas and several kinds of fruit juice. The weather was not warm enough to swim in the pool or the ocean, but the hot tub was quite pleasant. We were closer to the beach than some of these reviews lead me to expect - just cross the road and walk 60 feet or so. The restaurants within walking distance, or a short drive, were amazing. Reaching to think of a criticism: The door to our room needs paint, and the hot tub needs a bit of caulking. Overall, a great experience.

Good Day, Thank you for the review on our hotel. I am glad to hear that you were able to spend time with your long last friend and relax at our hotel.
We appreciate all feedback as it does help us improve our services and we have been trying different items on the breakfast buffet to see what works and what the guest like and i think we have found the Gold.
Dont forget about our return guest rate.
Thank You

This is a nice place to stay and the beach access is just a short walk across the street. Five minute drive across the Bridge of Lions to downtown St. Augustine. Close to the St. Johns Ocean Pier and Anastasia Island. All-in-all, just a nice hotel. The breakfast was good, too. Cereal, toast, bagel, waffle, sausage, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit. We will stay here again next time we are in the area.

We enjoyed our stay very much! The hotel is adorable! The staff are friendly and helpful! The beach is a two block walk...and the overall experience was great! Coffee is wonderful like stated in previous reviews. Everyone there, including other guests, were happy and satisfied. The only issue at all was that the doors to the outside the guest rooms are thin, and you can hear every conversation...guests and employees.

Thank you for that wonderful review, i will share your comments with my staff. We appreciate all feedback as it it does help us improve the quality of service and lets us know what we are doing right.
The coffee is columbian coffee, which is really good, we recently changed our coffee machine which enhances that flavor even more.
Thank You Again

This hotel is an excellent choice for both walking to the beach,(5 minute slow walk) and a short drive to old town St. Augustine. This hotel is only a ten minute drive to locations like the St. Augustine lighthouse and the alligator farm.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a survey on our hotel.
I am glad to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and yes the beach is a short walk across the street and we have many restaurants within walking distance from the hotels and attractions close by.
The trolley beach bus does pick up outside our hotel and this takes you down town. Dont forget about our special rate for returing guests.

The location of this hotel is excellent - a very easy walk to the beach and good restaurants are nearby.

The room layouts were a little dated and showed signs of an incomplete refurbishment. The beds on 2 separate occasions were a little soft, the bathroom was a small WC with a shower with the sink outside, the fridge gurgled all night, the (tiny) hair dryer cut out on my wife on both visits and there was no safe in the room. The tech in the room was acceptable - strong wi-fi signal and the TV offered lots of options. The staff were pleasant and helpful, as I have come to expect from BW folks and they helped with planning tours of local attractions.

I would recommend this place more highly if the rooms were a little more up to date and robust.

We spent one night at this hotel on our way north and really liked the location just across from the beach. Our room was ground floor and although the room itself was fine there was a slightly damp smell evident when entering. We put it down to the aircon and just lived with it as we were only there for one night. The pool area was small but adequate, the staff were pleasant and the breakfast was okay.
