Needs to clean more . Is dirty floor never gets clean . Good location

In a beautiful area of old St. Augustine, right across the street from the Fountain of Youth. We try to stay here anytime we're in town!

Nice property!

Great Location 15-20 Minute walk to Lion Bridge & Colonial Quarter, 2-3 Minutes to Fountain of Youth Park and the city tour trolleys. The "Senator Tree" is impressive (Note the parking lot is part of the Trolley city tours because of the tree, so the trolleys come by fairly often. Since we were not in the room most of the time, it did not bother us. There is Buffet Breakfast with eggs, sausage, croissants, muffins, fruit, coffee and juices. It is fresh, tasty and a pleasant surprise. The hotel is a bit older, the rooms have been updated but still need some work. Family Suite Room: The Living area (approx. 23x12 feet) had 1 picture and 2 blank walls (The other had a TV). There is a need for more wall art. The lighting is bright and combined with the lack of wall art, made the room a bit sterile. The closet was in the bathroom which made it a bit awkward and there are no drawers so you only had the shelf in the closet and an area by the door. Bedroom had the bed and a TV on the wall. The bedframe and headboard are made of metal and made a metal on metal noise anytime you got in or out of bed or adjusted your position. The nightstands were shelves hung in groves on the headboard and not terribly sturdy but the are functional. There are outlets on each side of the bed for charging phones/tablets or to power a CPAP machine. With continued improvements, this can be a wonderful little gem.

Staff was friendly and cheerful! The place was great and love the tree!

Great

The staff was very friendly

We liked that he villa was close to some sights and convenient if your on a budget. Dislike they were doing some instalation so it was noisy.

Noisy

Only a couple stations on television working could not get local news. Just infomercials TNT lagging to bad to watch. Bed was uncomfortable higher at the foot than head. We had to leave a day early to get sleep were charged for 3 days anyway place is in need of work. Would not recommend.

There was a scent of mildew in the room. Otherwise the sheets were clean, the beds were unbelievably comfortable, the room was clean, there were no signs of mold. Breakfast was hot and I was looking around while I was checking out the breakfast and the guy working noticed that I didn’t chose the turkey sausage and he asked if I ate meat and when I said no…he offered me a veggie pattie.

Property was a total scam, the pictures looked NOTHING like the photos posted on the website. Room was gross, there was no second lock on the door, shower was dirty. Then once we checked in I told the lady we are there for the night, gave her first and last name, and then she charged my card again when I had already paid through the app. And what a hassle that was to get my money back!

Room was very nice and clean!!! Bed was great!!!! Shower was nice overall pleased!!!!

I will definitely booked it again. It’s so convenient to get everywhere and you can park in front of your room. The room is pretty modern and it provides everything you needed. Even makeup remover wipes for women!! This hotel is So nice and clean plus perfect location!

All of my towels had very large dark stains on them to the point where they didn’t look clean. The shower floor looked like it hadn’t been cleaned correctly in months. Everything else was wonderful.

Walls are paper thin and each night a different guest would do their best to keep us awake. Had to knock on their doors and explain how thin the walls were and that there was no door sweep under the adjoining door (could be a COVID concern as well). They were quiet the rest of the night (minus their incessant coughing) but the next night was a new couple smh. Overall though, you get what you pay for. I could see my parents staying here as it seems more adult friendly with all the seating areas. I would not stay here again due to the walls but maybe we just had bad luck. Location was great and parking free and easy.
