Nice Getaway Weekend

Short weekend getaway to St. Augustine and this hotel was really good for that. Slightly away from some of the main attractions of St. Augustine but the price is cheaper and it was a $7 cab ride to get to the thick if it, which is cheaper than an extra $50/night to stay closer. Overall, a good average hotel with very friendly staff to help accommodate to your needs.

Visit to Flagler College

Hotel was clean, beds were comfortable, A/C was quiet and staff was very friendly. Room shower was plumbed backwards, but we didn't complain. It worked great, just took a minute to figurine out. Bathrooms were super clean. Pool was nice. If visiting downtown you may want to drive. Just a bit outside of walking distance to St Augustine center and the college.

Friendly, Accommodating Staff

Our stay at the Country Inn & Suites by Carlson in St. Augustine was great! The hotel was located right down the road from popular attractions, the staff was very friendly and accommodating and the fresh baked chocolate chip cookies was the cherry on the entire stay.

Not As Close To Town As Described

Hotel staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Facility was very clean, everything else was as expected for the brand. Location is tricky getting to if you've never been to the area before, but once there and you come and go, it's easy to get to. It is close to the Fountain Of Youth Park, and it may be close to some other attractions as well but we were there only overnight passing through. Two complaints: 1) The beds (mattresses) while clean, were old, "squishy", and "lumpy". 2) In the hotel description, one is led to believe it is "close" and with in walking distance to downtown. Relative to what? well it is "closer" than the hotels by the interstate. And if walking a mile and a half down a dimly lit - very busy road just to get into the downtown district, is your idea of "walking distance", then I suppose the description is accurate. otherwise hotel met my expectations.... one other observation, if a pool is important to your stay, I have seen bigger above-ground pools. The hotel is in the tail end of renovations and perhaps in their defense, the mattresses will get replaced in the end, I did not think to ask.

I would not use the term "walking distance to down town shops and dining" to describe this hotels location, especially if you have children.

Great experience. No problems at all with reservations. Great breakfast. Not too close to historic district if you prefer to walk from hotel. That part was misleading on the description. Other than that, great.

Close to the Historic District

The hotel is older, but has been kept up. Our room was comfortable & clean. The pool was located right on the main street and not private, so we did not use it. The breakfast was good for hotel food and had a good assortment from which to choose. For the price, we felt this was a good hotel.
