Nice friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay. They were very helpful

We had a great time in St Augustine and staying at the Southern Oaks Inn. Great property, very friendly and accomodating staff. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a nice hotel at a great price!

Easy access from exit 315 on I 95. Great breakfast. Older property but pride in ownership shows. Outside the traffic jam of old town but easy uber ride for less than parking fees. Pet friendly and excellent room care.

Nice hotel close to the trolley & everything downtown. Front staff very welcoming. Breakfast OK, but felt like sitting in a mess hall. Walls very flimsy so we could hear everything going on in the room next to us which kept us up half the night. If you're a heavy sleeper this might be OK, but I couldn't recommend this because of that reason.

A few hotels offer breakfast. They have a good breakfast and this made me choose this hotel.

This was a clean motel. Very motel-esque. Was not worth the price. Beds were terrible and smelled like old nasty motel

Rooms clean and don't smell...staff was wonderful.

Overall this hotel was excellent! The only thing that was slightly inconvenient is that there was no option for early check-in. It wasn't a holiday weekend or anything when we stayed so I was surprised there wasn't a room available for us by mid afternoon - so we had to wait until 4pm. But not a huge issue. The only other thing I could recommend is a complimentary shuttle to downtown. They have a couple shuttles but they are $3 per person each way. My husband and I got an uber for $6 so there's really no benefit to abiding by their pick-up/drop-off schedule when you can easily call an uber for the same price. The room was spacious, clean and I personally love the soap/shampoo/conditioner dispensers instead of bottles. The dog run was a great added perk! The breakfast was delicious each morning and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Carpet in the main area would have been nice. Room was adequate - everything there - refrig, micro, coffee maker. Nothing special about the room. Of course it's in a sought-after area since it is close to the St. Aug. attractions.

Awesome location and very nice place. Everyone there was absolutely friendly and went out of their way to do anything for you! The homemade breakfast was great. The beds were queen beds and they were so comfortable. It is in a great location walking distance to many places. Had lots of grass area for a dog and the pool was beautiful but the water was cold it wasn’t heated unfortunately. Safe and quiet area.

Great stay for 1 night. Walked to downtown, in the old city. Lots of fun.
