“Right on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

We found our stay at the Holiday Isle Oceanfront Resort to be very enjoyable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and had a nice view of the ocean. The restaurant was a perfect place to have breakfast before taking off for the day. We loved our morning walks on the beach! The pool area was very nice, however the weather was not quite warm enough to take a swim on this trip. We would stay there again.

We appreciate your compliments about our hotel, restaurant and staff. Breakfast and a nice long walk on the beach sure is a great way to start the day. I personally love watching the pelicans fly along the shore in the early morning. Be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins too. They are sighted periodically from the shore. We hope you come back and visit again soon!

What made our stay so enjoyable was the staff at the Holiday Isle Oceanfront Resort. They were friendly and accomadating. This hotel is one of a handful of hotels located right on beautiful St. Augustine Beach and the resort has a lovely pool. The room was clean with a great view of the ocean. We found our stay to be very relaxing and would stay there again.

This is a nice hotel. I read a number of negative reviews about it and can't figure out why. They had originally given us a room without a balcony. I asked to be moved to one with a balcony and they happily did that. We had a partial view of the ocean on the lowest possible room rate. We ate both breakfast and dinner and the restaurant and both were very good. The only complaint I could make is that on Thursday and Saturday night they have live music in the bar and it is so loud that you can't eat in the restaurant. Other than that, I thought it was a great place to stay and we will stay there again next year when we go to St. Augustine.

Room Tip: You have to be above the 2nd floor to get a balcony. We were on the north side and had a partial oc...

Thank you for staying with us during your time in St. Augustine. I am glad to hear you enjoyed both the hotel and the food in the restaurant. We do have live entertainment most Thursday and Saturday nights from 6-10pm in the lounge, which carries over into the restaurant. It creates a fun atmosphere, but it can be a little loud and I apologize for that. We are glad to hear you plan to stay with us again next year. That is the ultimate compliment. Thank you again!

This is an old holiday inn - I have stayed here several times in the past 5 years-I am giving a very good rating because of the location - I think the rooms need a deep cleaning soon but overall we really enjoyed it. It is ON THE BEACH- you walk out back and your toes are in the sand - it is older but the staff is friendly and rooms are ok - from what i am told the north side of the hotel has been renovated - but if you ask when you book they are pretty honest about the condition of the rooms - they have a lounge and restaurant in the hotel - limited food but still accomodating- their liquor assortment at the bar REALLY NEEDS AN UPGRADE - their top shelf vodka was smirnoff their well brand we had never heard off - coming from tr.lauderdale we are probably a bit spoiled but where is Absolut or Stoli? those are pretty standard- housekeeping was cheerful and friendly - this hotel staff is really trying-

Room Tip: book oceanfront or north side - northeast rooms will have a oceanfront from the side

Thank you for the compliments about our staff and location. Our oceanfront rooms truly are 'oceanfront' and offer incredible views of the water. I have let our restaurant manager know about the bar selection and he is going to work on updating that. Hopefully next time you come back, we will have a better selection for you.

The staff was great, friendly, helpful and you can tell they care about your comfort and experience, which makes a big difference. I travel for work frequently and can say the staff here is well managed and are focused on the customer experience. Refreshing these days. The property is older but comfortable, well designed, and well maintained. The neighborhood is quiet and on a stretch of beach that is fantastic. The rooms are typical hotel room, nothing special, but all the more reason to keep you from laying around the room and get out and enjoy the beach. I walked on the beach each morning and evening . . . just what I wanted. Highly recommend this property, I am planning my next visit already.

Room Tip: If you want 'oceanfront' and not 'oceanview' be sure to specify with your reservatio...

This hotel is a little dated and shows some wear in places; however it was clean, comfortable, and offered a nice pool and great beach access. The staff was very friendly and helpful with information about sightseeing activities, driving directions, and tips about affordable parking. This was a pet-friendly choice for us and there were indications of previous pet damage in the room we occupied, but the rate and location compensated for some scratches on the doors and frayed carpet. We will certainly stay here again,

Room Tip: Third and fourth floor balconies have a nice beach view.

Thank you for your sharing your experience with us. We are glad you enjoyed our hotel and service and found it to be a good value. Some types of rooms do have a great ocean view, but as you mentioned, we do limit the pets to the first floor rooms. Glad to hear you plan to definitely stay with us again in the future.

The Hotel is very close to the beach, but at 1.6 miles from the St Augustine Beach Pier.
We went for the New Year's eve.
The service is ok for a roadside motel. They do not have Room Service at all. If you ask for something, like breakfast in the room, they prepare a box, and you have to come down to the restaurant to get it.
There is a renovated side, and we stayed in this renovated side. Apparently, the non-renovated side is even worse.
If you are looking for an acccessible hotel, this is not the place. We had one of the acessible rooms, and the bathroom had several hazard structures. We do not need accessible rooms, but I pay attention to them.
It is ok for a sleep-only requirement.

Thank you for staying with us over New Years. We have four completely accessible rooms that have one queen bed, and some others with two queens that have an 'accessible' sign on the door but are not fully accessible and we do not sell as such. It appears this reservation was not for a 'fully accessible' room. We will be offering room service and a poolside tiki bar in the summer, but not this time of year. We also have a restaurant that is open daily for breakfast and dinner in the summer. Hours vary in the winter, but is always open at least on the weekends.
