Staff was friendly, room was average for a short overnight stay, price seemed high, but you pay for location. Tour Trolly stops in parking lot (very convient) you can buy a 3 day tour ticket for $23 at the desk. Considering limited and paid parking in areas of sightseeing interest, it is a good deal. You can get on and off at one of 22 tour stops.

I would pass

The room was average but didn't feel clean. The bathroom was very small and there was no sink counter space. The bathroom did not look clean and everything was old. I was glad to leave. This was the worse hotel we stayed in during a 3 week road trip.

If going to the Lighthouse or Castillo de San Marcos go when they first open to avoid the crowds.

What a dump!!!!!!

I usually travel and use the search engine to research hotels; most of the time we are very very happy with the recommendations. This place was a dump. The rooms were nasty and the beds were too small. They were an oversized twin. At one point my husband had to sleep on a chair bc there was not enough room for him on the bed. The hotel has been refaced but not remodeled or updated. It was still the same old stuff with a fresh coat of paint. The bathtub was loosing the enamel and the toilet clogged in the middle of the night. There was breakfast the next day and we didn't even stay. Thank goodness it was for 1 night or we would have defintitely changed.

Hotel was fine for a quick get away, location is good right near the Historic District. Hotel is older, but the rooms are clean, and for the price is was fine.

Nice & Inexpensive

We were not expecting much based on the price we paid, but were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and the staff nice. It may be a little far from the historic district if you hate walking, but we enjoyed looking in all the shops on our walks.
