Great location adequate hotel

I booked this hotel for one reason. Location on the beach. The rooms are clean. We slept well. Great local restaurants up down the street. Have a decent pool with tiki bar and then a gated entrance to the beach. Beach was very clean with chairs and umbrellas to rent. Not sure why someone would spend the extra money on a hotel with beach access and then spend their time at the pool. I could spend time at a local pool back home. I came to see the beach. Anyway, the hotel is adequate especially since we spent most of our time at the beach or touring around. Just needed a bed for 7 hrs a night.

Dated but they try

I probably won't be staying at this hotel again for it is quite dated. The hotel staff were very friendly and they try real hard to make your stay pleasurable. The pool and tiki bar were nice. The beds were awful and we had trouble with our very old tv. For one night, the price was right. Access to the beach was great for that is what we went for. They had chair rentals for those that needed them.

Disappointed

I was expecting a lot more based off the pictures on the hotels web sight. The hotel was run down they were doing repairs while we were there. When we first entered the room it had a funny smell that eventually went away or we may have gotten use to it. When the maid would come to clean the room there was never any new towels left or toilet paper and sheets were never changed for the 5 days that we were there. On the second night we ordered a cot when it was brought to the room it was covered in hair and bugs, also had stains on the sheets. On the plus side pool was good and access to the beach was convenient.

Quick Weekend Getaway

My experience with this hotel was good. No complaints really. The staff were helpful, the rooms were clean a little outdated but overall they were ok. The Tiki bar poolside was a plus. We enjoyed our stay.

Old amenities. Needs some upgrading

Though the location was great, the hotel is old and the rooms smelled. I changed room the first night because the bed headboard came off and it was unstable. I wouldn't stay again.

Perfect location

Friendly and attentive staff. Comfy beds. Close drive to historical attractions, but the beach trolley picks you up, so no need to drive. We loved the clean pool and beach, right out front. Overall, a nice weekend.

Sunset grill was recommended by the hotel staff, and the food was delicious, but don't take the seating in the bar area. It's too noisy.

Nice old hotel

It's on the beach which make's up for its age. The staff was very nice. Room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone who want's to stay in that area. They had a bus that goes downtown St. Augustine, only thing is, the last bus coming back to the hotel ends at 4:30 PM, so, if you plan on staying later than that, take your vehicle.

Right bang for the buck.

Enjoyed the walk on the beach, the piano bar, free parking, early check in, and close to restaurants. I wish the pool had been heated or had a Jacuzzi. Free breakfast would have been nice. Old hotel, needs to be renovated. Parking should be away from the rooms, too much noise from car alarms, loud motorcycles, and car doors slamming while you are trying to sleep.
