Quick drive to St. Augustine's historic district

Posted Nov 20, 2017
Pros: Ordered a free light breakfast & it was sent to the room so we could stay in our p.j.s. The warm muffins were delicious & eggs hard boiled PERFECTLY!
Cons: Only one silly thing I can think of: we were three women and the mirror in the bathroom could have been a little lower
Location: Historic district with its myriad shops and restaurants. Castillo (fort) National Monument. Mini golf (with cute pirate ship) next to hotel.
We were greeted by a pleasant front desk staff & the gentleman had a good sense of humor which I appreciate. Gave us info on use of room key, beach towels (which they would provide), etc, told us to call if we needed anything and we were off to room in a few short minutes. Room was clean and nicely appointed. On morning two of our stay, one of our group noticed there were no decaf coffee pkts. A call to the front desk & they were brought up very quickly. We will be returning to St Augustine and would happily stay at this hotel. It's less expensive compared to hotels in the historic district so we had more money to spend at restaurants and gift shops which made three women very happy.. I'd also checkout the fair grounds. When we were there, on day one there was a "Tiny House" exhibit which one of our group wanted to see. Day two was spent entirely in the historic district and we didn't see half of it.

Good motel near a beach

Posted Nov 2, 2017
It isn’t beachfront but only a short walk without crossing streets. The motel has a pool. St Augustine 5 miles away so not so good for touring. The motel room is reasonable without much in the way of extras. Clean and good beds. Included breakfast is very basic but convenient.

Fall break

Posted Oct 22, 2017
The staff was very friendly. The room was clean and very quiet. We never heard our neighbors. The pool was warm and clean. We will stay there again. Great experience!

Hotel on the Beach

Posted Oct 16, 2017
Hotel was pretty much right on the beach which is a plus in anyones books plus the staff were very pleasent. The beach was not crowded at all and we were able to catch an amazing sunrise. The room however was just okay and had a foul smell once we were inside. The pull out couch seemed very outdated, noisy, and uncomfortable. The main bed was pleasent however. The continental breakfast was poor and not fresh and would not recommend it as there are nice breakfast restaurants.

Close to the beach, that's about the only positive

Posted Oct 9, 2017
The only positive is the proximity to the beach and the low price. It's very old and pretty outdated , even though an attempt had supposedly been made for an update. The walls are very thin and you can hear your neighbor's conversations as clearly as if you were in the same room. The rooms are small and the restroom is very claustrophobic. There is no elevator and hauling your bags up the stairs is not fun!
