Location was great. Staff was also great. The only complaint is that housekeeping left the room unmade.

Newly renovated. Comfy beds. Big television. They have ice.

Easy access very nice pool and the breakfast was good

It was a very clean facility. The staff was polite. Perfect for our one night stay. Its within 15-20 minuted of old town in St. Augustine, the Sebastian winery and the St. Augustine beach. The outlet m

Unexpected pleasure. Clean, bright, and updated and a great price! Staff was wonderful too!

Everything was great. Friendly staff, clean facilities.

Very clean. Amazing breakfast. Staff was very nice. Rooms looked to be all new furnished

The staff was super friendly and immediately made me feel welcomed. They gave me the impression that they really enjoyed their work and it reflected in their sunny dispositions. The property was very well maintained, our room was immaculate and the hotel had a nice selection of hot & cold food for breakfast. We will definitely stay here again and I recommend it highly,

I didn’t like the fact I couldn’t go on the pool because it smelled just like beer and their was a lot of beer boxes alll over on the wall way to the pool

Clean well run and easy parking. This place is just a little hard to access but once you figure it out its ok. Noisy close to freeway exit ramp is the only complaint.

A bit leery when driving up to hotel, as there was some construction going on. But was very pleasantly surprised at our room. Decor, amenities and comfortable bed were great! Bathroom was small, but it served its purpose. No sooner had we entered our room, Jacob, from the front desk called to see if there was anything we needed. In all our years of traveling that has NEVER happened! Staff was very friendly; breakfast area quite clean (they had real half & half for our coffee!!!!!); pool area was very comfortable. Great value for the money. This was a hidden gem in St. Augustine and we WILL BE BACK!!!

Pet friendly an clean rooms with great location for shopping

The place was okay for one night. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the staff was friendly. The walls were paper thin and I woke many times in the night to the sounds of other guests. The sheets and blankets were tiny and we were cold. Not worth $166 with tax... should be a $70 night.

Nicely maintained older property that offers easy on/off access to I-95 and close to restaurants. Perfect for an overnight stay with pets. Check-in easy and pleasant, good breakfast, clean and comfortable room. There is a pool on the premises too. For the price, I don't think you will find anything nicer in the area.

Great Breakfast, Super Clean, Comfy Bed, Easy to find, Close to everything in St.Augustine, and your dog stays free and there's even a nice dog park for them to play in. I'll be staying here whenever Im in the area.
