Good value, clean, and good location

We were only staying for the night so decided to spend a little less on a hotel in the area than we normally do. The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, AC worked great and the staff was friendly. They were also accomadating of the oversized truck (RV size) we were driving and let us take up several spaces in the front. The location is a little bit of a walk to the majority of the historic district but doable, took us about 15 minutes and were able to stop in some of the shops along the way you may not typically see if you stayed closer. All in all it was a great value and would recommend to others who want to stay in a clean safe hotel near the historic district but want to spend a little less than the other options in the area.

Great location

Great location...close to main restaurants and attractions. Hotel is not that great, but did not spend too much time in it. Too many great things to see and to do in the city...

Race fans approve

[...] We were looking for a cheap, but decent hotel for 2 race fans travelling to Daytona 500. Even though it was about an hour away, the price was worth it. The rooms were clean, hotel staff were friendly and the beds were average, perfect for 2 penny-pinching race fans.

Bare Minimums

Stayed here when me and 3 friends drove down from NJ for my best friend's wedding. Pictures online were misleading and was sub-par to what I had expected. The bathroom needed a good scrub and some plumbing. The continental breakfast was less than impressive/fresh. There was nothing outright awful but nothing to call home about.

Nice stay

We went to the historic district, eating, shopping. The train came through the hotel drive several times a day which I thought was unusual. This was a good trip except for the hearing impaired guests who we thought would be quiet but apparently they didn't realize that other guests can hear. I would have appreciated it if the HoJo would have kept it a little quieter.

St. George Street has always been a favorite of mine. Castillo de San Marcos is a must. A lot of history in the oldest city in the nation!

Howard Johnson Inn-Historic St. Augustin

Our air conditioner in our 2 rooms was not working, and they moved us to different rooms so that we would be comfortable. The service was friendly, and the pool was great.
