Great location and pool. Front desk staff was very friendly. Loved how one of the trolly stops was at the hotel. However, AC never really cooled the room off.

My stay at Villa 1565 totally exceeded my expectations. We usually stay by the beach and drive to downtown to spend the day or dine out, but this time we were looking to stay in downtown. I based my selection not only on price but also on the location and pictures (although I am aware pictures can be deceiving). Upon arrival we realized this little hotel is where the famous oldest tree is located...so we immediately recognized the area. The front desk agent was extremely pleasant and even checked on us after we got to our room to make sure we were happy with everything. From outside it looked like an old motel and I was afraid to open the room door... but what a surprise it was to see a beautiful modern-style and clean looking room with plenty of amenities (microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker and complimentary coffee, plus multiple toiletries including make up removing wipes). It had hot breakfast included dialy, but it was more like a continental grab and go, with 2 hot items (premade mini omelets and potatoes), which is not a bad starter to the day. I truly enjoyed everything about this place... my only comment is that the AC system in the rooms needs to be updated. Very loud and it makes it hard to enjoy the comfortable bed for a good night's sleep.

It was in a great location to downtown st Augustine. But the hotel itself was filthy on the outside and there were cockroaches and termites on the inside. I have pictures to prove that. It was way too expensive to be so dirty. Would not recommend it.

Keeping our property clean is one of our biggest priorities, so we ask that you let us know as soon as you run into something that isn't what we promised. We have pest control looking into your claims, though pests are not something our guests usually encounter. We know our location is top-notch, and we hope you keep that in mind the next time you're in the area. We'd love to change your mind and show you a better experience!

The hotel was very clean. The location was pretty good.The beds were OK. The breakfast was not good at all. Something to be avoided.
