Comfortable hotel very close to the beach.

Pros: The feeling of friendliness and the comfortable atmosphere
Cons: Complimentary breakfast offerings; handhold rails in the shower.
Location: Located in St. Augustine Beach; less than a 2-minute walk directly onto the beach (watch sunrise over the ocean!), many really fine restaurants nearby
Hotel is older, but beautifully decorated in a Spanish style and very clean. It's less than half a block to the beach. The swimming pool area is beautiful and very fun to relax in. Above all, the staff were incredibly friendly and went above and beyond what's normally encountered to be helpful, informative about things to do and see in St. Augustine--they were wonderful including housekeeping staff and the people at the front desk and even the young man who cleaned the swimming pool. The only downside was that there was no complimentary breakfast offerings. There is a very fine independent restaurant in the hotel building itself, but it was pricey for breakfast. The food was wonderful, but more costly than we could afford on a daily basis. We took advantage of the mini-fridge and microwave to provide our own breakfast after the first morning.

Close to beach.

We Would of given much better rating but no internet reception in our room unless we held phone to window. The linen on the bed was very wrinkled the sheet and comforter. one day out of three we had someone clean our room there was a damp towel left on the bed and other towels left that should of been replaced. When we checked out very early the last day we weren't asked if we enjoyed our stay or no thank you nothing. On the flip side it is beautiful there and easy access to beautiful beach and nice pool and laundry facilities. Location is very good. Parking was easy and very nicely located. Walking distance to good restaurants and shops.

Great Find

Pros: quality and size of our room
Cons: needs a cocktail lounge
Location: walking distance of the beach and a short drive to historic downtown St Augustine
Great find in the St Augustine, Fla area, was really surprised with the quality of the hotel, and the staff were great. The restaurant in the hotel was first class. Wish there had been a cocktail lounge though, only drawback.

Nice

Clean, quiet, and comfortable. This place is about a 10 minute drive from the historic part of St Augustine. This will be the place we stay when we return.
