The hotel was a good value for what we got...a comfortable room with some upgrades, free parking & complimentary breakfast, and walking distance to town. Not all other hotels in the area offered that, which is why we chose to stay @ Villa 1565.

Dear Lynette, thanks for staying with us and for the nice review. We are glad you enjoyed the staff and breakfast. We hope you enjoyed the pool as well. And, as there is so much to see in St Augustine, we think we're in a good location, where one can walk or catch the trolley or Scooter to many destinations. We look forward to having you stay with us the next time you're in town. Have a wonderful weekend.

The room I requested was a suite King. I arrived & was shocked to see nothing like my room was pictured in advertising. Pool closed & I spoke to front desk immediately & was told nothing could be done.

Good evening Christopher, thank you for the review. We were disappointed by the comments and have shared them with the staff accordingly. And, the swimming pool was just closing when you arrived. If you have any specific details that you would like to share, feel free to let me know. Have a wonderful week!!

This place is not the worst. It’s a old time motel that was somewhat renovated. It was clean. Staff appeared to be upset they had to work during our stay. If you wanted to see St Augustine for the day, get a good night’s sleep and head home, there are better places to stay.

The room smell musty and moldy. We couldn't stay the smell was giving us a headache. We asked for it to be cleaned again but no one ever came to clean. We ended up having to book a different hotel which turned out to wonderful. I would never recommend this hotel/motel to anyone.
