Great location! Great staff! Great room!
Posted Dec 21, 2016
We visited St. Augustine and picked this hotel for several reasons: age of the hotel, location, fitness facilities, free parking and free wifi. We weren't disappointed. First, the staff was great from the beginning. We got there really early and didn't expect our room to be ready and it wasn't. But I received a text as soon as one was ready and we were given a parking pass ahead of check in so we could park at the hotel and ride our bikes all over the city. We were greeting with cheerful smiley faces every time we walked through the lobby and offered warm cookies at the front desk. Scrumptious.
The Fitness facilities, for those interested, are better than one would expect at a smaller hotel, but what we come to expect in newer hotels. The equipment is like new, high quality and includes several cardio machines, dumb bells up to 50 lbs and a really nice universal machine. Outside there is a nice pool and Jacuzzi.
Off the lobby is a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a bar.
The rooms are very comfortable. The beds are very comfortable. The bathroom is decent sized with a nice bath tub and granite counters. Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries are provided. The room includes a microwave, mini fridge, big flat screen TV, workspace desk and a safe.
It is located very near attractions such as the Fountain of Youth, Ripley's Believe it or not, and the Old Jail. It's about a half mile or so from the Castillo de San Marcos.
