Hotel is very pet friendly. The beach and historic downtown is pet friendly as well.
The first floor of the hotel is for pets and their owners. All the rooms on the first floor are in the process of being renovated. They will all have tile floors, mini refrigerators and microwaves. I have been there before the renovation and was very skeptical about returning. I am very glad I decided to give them another try. Next time we go to st Augustine we will stay at this hotel.

Thank you for coming back and staying with us once again. We are renovating all the pet-friendly rooms to have tile floors, which is very nice for pets and their owners. Many of those rooms do have microwaves/fridges as well, but not all of them. I am glad you plan to stay with us next time you are in town.

Our experience here was exceptional. The room was comfortable, and the front desk staff went far and above normal expectations. The entire Road scholr experience was excellent: the qualiy of the food and the presention was outstanding, the program and the organization was equally well done.

We stayed for two nights (Fri/Sat) and enjoyed our stay there. A few observations:

The Good:
- Very good value
- Free parking and internet
- Close to downtown - there is a shuttle bus that leaves every hour from the hotel, but must be back by 4:30pm; we took our car which took us no more than 15 minutes
- Clean room; friendly staff
- Delicious breakfast (not free)
- Right by the beach

The Bad:
- We had a room by the elevator and could hear constant noise
- The pool seemed dirty - we didn't go in, it was too cold outside
- The ocean view is very limited

It's not an upscale hotel, but it's a very good place to come back to and rest.

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevators, and get the top floor for best view.

Totally dog friendly hotel. Holiday Isle appears to be a converted Holiday Inn but don't let that scare you off. The first floor rooms are all dog friendly so expect a few barks along the way. Being dog friendly has its advantages since the floors are all high-end tile (in case of accidents) and the rooms have a dedicated fresh blanket to put over the comforters on the bed so "Fido" can join you if you are so inclined. The hotel and rooms were surprisingly clean and fresh smelling. Beach is accessible through pool area. Would definitely stay again if I had the dog with me. Room had microwave and small fridge. Our room had two queen beds, a comfortable chair/ottoman and a small writing desk with chair and lamp. Powerful shower also a plus. Dog and family loved the beach!

Room Tip: Beware of the occasional car driving on the top part of the beach

We are glad to hear you had a great time staying here with your pet in one of our newly renovated ground floor rooms. Not all of our ground floor rooms have been updated with the new tile floors, but it is in the works over the coming months. Also, we do not advertise having microfridges in the ground floor rooms, but some do have them as a bonus. Our beach is also pet-friendly, which is great for benefit for guests traveling with their four-legged friends.

an employee in the restaurant, her name is 'pam' was very attentive to our needs. she went out of her way to make our dining experience very enjoyable!! it is always nice to have a dedicated person on staff!! also, the lobby was always very clean, even when it rained on our trip. Lobby restrooms were cleaned on a daily basis which was also very nice. The front counter staff was very helpful with any of our requests. We will definately stay here again when we are in St. Augustine!!

Room Tip: unless you have a pet, stay on an upper floor, 3rd or higher
