Nice Room Nice Staff

This is a motel not a hotel, very loud noises from close roadway and bright lights outside windows with insufficient blocking from shades. Will not go back.

Room next to Amtrak tracks. Guaranteed not enough sleep

Decent place for the $$.

We went out touring and then spent time at the pool. At 4:30 my husband saw the housekeeper 2 doors down. He exchanged the towels with her. We had already emptied the small trash can.

Very nice property with great restaurant and service-gorgeous spot looking over the back side of the intracoastal and gorgeous sunsets from the deck set up in the bs k of the hotel. Great place

Clean hotel and perfect for 1 or 2 nights. There is a train that passes right behind the property. Wasn't too loud but a surprise to see and hear.

The pictures are terribly misleading. Its a glorified motel at best, with rail tracks running right through almost and loud trains running all day and night. The room was clean but the facilities were very unclean, though the staff were friendly and helpful.

Location,next to trolley pick up, places to eat close by was nice. Pool and hot tub were clean but cold . hot tub was not hot ,just warm did not use them like I hoped to. Ricky from Wisconsin.

We had a outstanding time ! Rooms were clean ! Felt it was in safe area.

Location was great,Viaited during the covid time.Upon arrival was greeted with hand sanitizer in lobby .Room came with face mask and hand sanitizer provided. Room was very clean and comfortable.Staff saw we had a cooler made sure we had a microwave , refrigerator plus personal ice maker in room.While visiting due to a emergency we needed to stay an extra day. The front desk staff Negar and Jeremy plus older Gentleman went above and beyond our whole visit. They also gave me a great rate ,same room .When leaving to head home Jeremy made sure we had coffee fresh at 5:30 am.The pool was large clean lots of areas to relax.Hot tub was also clean and nice and hot.There is a nice little restaurant to eat at also.

The rooms were clean and well maintained. Not enough towels in the rooms and the pool was not quite like the pictures online but not bad. Overall good experience with a good price.

Quaint property that is really close to the historic landmarks of St. Augustine. Very clean and cozy.

Pros: Pool, Nice staff, restaurant/bar on site. Cons: Room was small with a bad smell coming from the AC unit. No water pressure in shower. No hd tv.
