Nicer hotels for less nearby

Posted May 28, 2017
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Clean and paint sidewalks and parking lot. Clean stairwells. Thoroughly clean and deodorize rooms. Don't allow the owner to interact with guests.
We reserved a non-smoking room and when we got to the room it reeked of cigarette smoke, and although it had a no-smoking sign on the door, there was an ashtray on the night stand. When we complained, the owner of the hotel was at the front desk and insisted it was a non-smoking room. He was very indifferent to our concerns and did not offer to move us to another room. Family members stayed at a hotel directly across the street for a similar price and although their hotel was of a similar age, it was much better maintained and the staff was exceptional, including the owner, who we met. I'm surprised Howard Johnson allows this hotel to use its name.

Convenient location but too much light in the room

Posted May 9, 2017
Pros: Exterior was freshly painted, with large parking lot. Room had a refrigerator. The complimentary breakfast included fresh fruit and fresh waffles
Cons: There could be more backing on the curtain so no light comes into the room when the curtain is drawn.
Location: The hotel is located right off I-95 and very convenient to St. Augustine. The Old City, Castillo San Marcos, and nearby beaches are major attractions
The exterior of the hotel has been renovated, and looks nice. The neighborhood is safe. The complimentary breakfast includes fruit and fresh waffles. The room was clean, with a refrigerator. And the air conditioner was not noisy. However, the curtain didn't keep out the light from the parking lot. If you need a darker room for sleeping soundly you will be disappointed. The main section of the curtain allowed no light to pass, but a foot at the top and a foot at the bottom didn't have the necessary backing to keep out the light. So, light comes into the room throughout the night.

Go ANYWHERE else!!!

Horrible accommodations. Interior needs serious renovations. Cracked tile in bathroom, bulging paint/drywall in bathroom, painted over tub/shower, every towel bar or luggage rack was ripped out of wall and hanging there, microwave shot sparks and smoked, and every time you sat on the toilet it felt like it might topple over.

Smelled old

Posted Feb 19, 2017 on Hotels
The room had an old smell, the shower head was broke, there was little water pressure. The beds were wore out we slept on top of the blankets. We didn't eat breakfast there because we were so ready to go. #neveragain

Great location, terrible hotel!

Posted Jan 29, 2017
The staff was very nice but the rooms were bad. We had to change rooms twice because the toilets didn't work. Even in the third room my husband had to fix the toilet several times. With some major cleaning and repairs it would be much better. Great location though!
