the hotel is right on the beach and the pool looked great- it was just to cool to swim, the rooms were standard and very clean- the maids did a great job cleaning up after my baby.

This hotel was excellent. The entire staff went above and beyond during my stay. I got to enjoy the beach, pool, and the historic aspects of St. Augustine. The restaurant had excellent food for breakfast and dinner. The rooms were very clean. The views of the beach were incredible from our balcony. We didn't even have to book an ocean front room to experience the views. I will definitely return to this hotel.

Yes, the hotel is pet friendly BUT we felt like we were staying in the basement with the dog. My wife and I were celebrating a special occasion and used our 2500 priority club points for this stay. As a gold priority club member, I was shocked at the condition of this hotel. Definately had the feeling we were booked with the dogs! Access to the beach was poor. One must walk outside of the hotel and enter a gate to the swimming pool area to have access to the beach. The hotel is outdated and not clean. Usually don't complain and can't understand the ratings for this hotel. Beware!

holbgman, Thank your for your review. Our pet friendly rooms are all on the ground floor and do not have any view. We have done this for two reasons. Guests who are allergic to pet dander and easy access to the outside for dogs. We try our best to accommodate every travelers needs. We do in fact have gates that you need your room key to get to the pool but this is to keep out the locals and keep areas closed for the safety of little ones. We will be performing renovations in the near future and hope that you can give us a second chance once they are completed.

Really bad. Rusty water from shower. Awful service at resturant. Turned on heater but could not stand the smell. Slept cold. Don't stay here.

My husband and I just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. Friends advised us to go to St. Augustine for the beauty and the history. We stayed at the Holiday Inn in St. Augustine Beach. The beach was beautiful, close by and easy to see from our balcony. Our room was nice and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely go there again.

We stayed here for one week while relocating to the area. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The ocean views were wonderful and the beach made for great walks.

Just stayed here for 2 nights. The location is great. Right on the beach, 10 minutes from Historic district. We had a king bed, refrigator & microwave with balcony on the 5th floor. The hotel itself was clean and the staff was very friendly & helpful. It's just the hotel is old. If you are on a budget then this wouldn't be a bad place for you. We paid $88 per night with a discount. The only reason why we wouldn't stay here again is because it is old. Other than that the hotel is fine.
They have a resturant that serves hot breakfast off a menu 7-11 and dinner of a menu 5-9. It does cost extra. Also, has room service at the same hours.
Floors 1 & 2 don't have patio or balcony unless you get a ocean front room. Floors 3-5 have balconies regardless of it being an ocean front room or not.
Nice pool area. No hot tub. Tiki bar but that is only open seasonal.
FYI for smokers: All rooms are smoke free including the balcony.
BTW, didn't see any roaches like another person had posted.
