one thing that all readers should notice is that this management group is reading and responding to this feedback which as impressive as it is rare on these sites. That's a very good indicator that they care about their customer's and value their recommendations. I've stayed here when it was Holiday Inn and now that it's Holiday Isle, I think its actually better. Renovations can be expected to be a continual activity in this service setting. I'm always surprised to see 5 star expectations out of 2.5 star wallets on these things, but whatever. This place is really a terrific value and what makes it even better is the actual service component. I'll continue to stay here.

We had a great time. We chose this hotel because its pet friendly, and because its steps from the beach. We were happy to see alot of other families that had brought their pets too! The room was decent and the pool area was nice. The staff were nice...and the check in process was a breeze!

My first but not my last visit to Holiday Isles was great. Loved my room, loved the beach and pool and loved the staff and their always helpful attitude. Beautiful beach and was kept clean the whole week we were there. My best friend and I could not get over how friendly everyone was in St. Augustine,Fl. We never encountered one rude or mean person the whole time in St. Augustine. If you are looking for a great place to stay in St. Augustine, I highly recommend Holiday Isles Ocean front Restort.

We are so glad you had such a great experience with us, and in the St. Augustine area. It is a wonderful town to visit, and to live in. And our hotel has the best of both worlds, being directly on the beach, and only a short 10-minute ride to the heart of 'old town.' We are excited to hear you are planning to come back again in the future.

I stayed here back in August with my best friend, another friend, and my cat. The staff were extremely friendly, even after we had pestered them with so many questions. As well, we had requested a fridge instead of the microwave, as we thought it had one or the other, and got a room with both. To top that, the room (being a pet room) did not smell anything like a pet room. It was VERY clean, and homey. The staff also got a kick out of seeing my cat walk around on her leash. :) The pool was very nice, not busy at all, the food we ordered at the restaurant was delicious, and the beach is almost at your doorstep it seemed. As well, the beach was very clean.

Room Tip: Call and talk to them

Thank you for all the compliments about our staff, hotel and beach. As you mentioned, we are always here to assist with as many questions as you may have. The refrigerator/microwave combos are not in all of the pet rooms, but when requested, we try our best to assign guests one of those rooms. Thank you again for staying with us.

The accomadations were great and the staff was very freindly and helpful. Ground floor rooms accept pets! and the extra charge is cheaper then a kennel stay, and your best freind can be with you!

We had a great week here. The staff is so responsive, helpful and friendly. I would stay here every time we go to St. Augustine. And it's right on the beach. Pool is large. We not only had a fridge, but a microwave and coffe maker. The fridge was unexpected, but great to have.

Thank you for spending a week with us. We are glad you enjoyed our hotel and staff so much. The microwave and refrigerator definitely come in handy, especially for longer stays. We hope you come back to stay with us again soon! NOTE: For guests looking for the 'microfridge,' we only have them in the 'north-facing rooms' which have the private balcony and partial view. The oceanfront rooms have a refrigerator, but not a microwave. The south-facing rooms have neither.

I have to agree with those that have had a positive experience at this hotel. Is it a luxury beachfront accomondation? No, but it is also the best value I could find right on the beach. The other options were twice the price. It was clean,had a mini fridge, staff was friendly, and pool/beach facilities were steps from our room. They were very accomodating with an early check in on our arrival day and a late check out on our departure, further increasing my value. Seriously, can the negative reviewers find anything else in that price range directly on the beach?

If I am in the area again, I wouldn't hesitate to stay there.
