Coming off a terrible experience the night before at another hotel in the St Augustine area, we cut our stay there short by two nights and made reservations at this Holiday Inn Express based on the good reviews. It is in a strange location (i.e., standing alone in an area of town that is a little run-down), but that may be because of the nearby Naval Station at Mayport, as there were a lot of Navy folks and contractors staying in the hotel. We had no issues and felt safe, though, as it was easy to get to the beach area, as well as access the roads we needed to head north to Amelia Island and later back toward home.
The staff was outstanding across the board. Everyone, from the night manager to the day manager to the breakfast area staff to the cleaning staff, was very friendly and upbeat. The hotel was very clean, and our room (two queen suite) was excellent.
Didn't necessarily care for the smoking guests lighting up and hanging out around the front entryway. Recommend a better area away from the front and non-smoking guests.
Excellent overall stay and highly recommended.
