Recent guest reviews

Front desk clerk Jill was amazing, only downside on the stay was, on one of the days the fire alarm was going off for hours. Great hotel and staff.

Very friendly and professional staff. Very accommodating.

Never again! Took over 20 mins to check in since there was only 1 staff member while the others watched. Room stunk and still had trash in the receptacles. STAY AWAY

Very clean...loved the bed and pillows. Nice location....super frienfly staff. Nice bteakfast!

Bathroom was not working. Staff offer a plunger as a solution, staff was rude, breakfast below average...

Great stay. Clean rooms. Just stayed one night. It was what i expected.

Location is good, not too far from the center of Saint Augustine. It took us 20 minutes to be in St. George Street, the pedestrial mall and most popular street for visitors. The hotel is clean, breakfast is very simple but enough. Service is correct.

This was exactly what we were hoping for: a clean, comfortable room, good location, healthy breakfast and above all professional, courteous, helpful, friendly staff. Tom, the GM and Rhonda went out of their way to make our stay most enjoyable. Thank you.

Original room that we were given had something wrong with the A/C unit, and smelled so bad that I had to call the front desk and ask for a new room, otherwise I was going to look for another hotel (the smell was unbearable). The front desk had a spare room and switched us with no hassle. Over all this is just a place I'd stay to sleep and nothing more.

not exactly in the historic district but in a good location and not far away. the name was misleading, nice room, friendly staff. you will have to walk or drive to catch the trolley but there is free parking at the old jail.

Breakfast area only had 3 tables. People either had to stand or eat on a couch. No hot items either. Room was good. Everything worked and was in good shape. Location was ok. Pool opens at 10 which is way too late.

Nice clean hotel not the far away from downtown St Augustine. It's not really walking distance, but it's close to downtown. There's plenty of free parking on st George and King St plus the lots behind St George Tavern so it really wasn't a big deal to drive. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The front desk clerk was extremely friendly, informative and helpful when we asked about haunted tours. We noticed he was just as nice to the next people, too. The pool and hot tub were nice and clean, too. Good hotel for the money.

Very restful nights sleep, The breakfast lounge could be a bit bigger. Staff where very friendly.

The hotel room was clean and comfortable but the bathroom was very small. The location was good; it was quick and easy to get to the center of the historic district.

staff not very polite. basic air condition and frig not very good. I will NOT go back to this location.

This motel was old, but very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful but at times a bit misinformed. When I asked if I could extend my stay one more day I was told yes. When I went back to do that I was told that because I had booked thru Orbitz I could not. They had rented all of their rooms. The motel is not within walking distance of anything, but it is only a short drive to the old city, fort, etc. I would recommend this motel, but only for Sunday thru Thursday. On weekends they jack the price up almost 70%

The hotel was in a great convenient location to the historic district and also the beaches. We had a great weekend. The only drawback is that it isn't walking distance from the historic district, but you can walk to a visitor center with a trolley/shuttle to downtown.

Great for the price. Older hotel but very clean. not really with in walking distance of any of the attractions but the trolly and train pick up are located right down the street. They have a small pool that we did nit use, but we saw many families swimming.

Very clean and comfortable.

Allowed early check in process for my family so that we could start enjoying St Augustine right away. Hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly.

Thank you for your 4-star rating, and apologies for the fire alarm being triggered. The good news is that it was a false alarm, and I understand they had it under control in a short period of time. We look forward to your return visit, and are pleased you liked our recently renovated property! Best regards, Debbie
