Staff is rude and does not care.

We stayed here for a weekend getaway and arrived to a broken toliet, told front desk and was moved to a room with a broken AC unit. Now remember we are in florida and during the summer. Dealt with the broken AC the first night and the next morning went back down and told them and was informed an engineer would be out there while I was out to fix it. We get back to the hotel 9 hours later and still not fixed. I call downstairs and they sent up an engineer who tells me they are having many issue with the AC and don't know why they did not correct it the first time. I was so frustrated dealing with them and a young child sleeping in the heat it was unreal. I would never ever recommend this hotel to anyone and hope people will listen to this. The staff is rude at the front desk and even said to me it don't matter what you say because people want to golf and this is there only choice so your opinion don't matter. I will let you know that we go away 3 times a year and I have never ever left a bad review but this place is horrible!!!!

Decent hotel

The hotel is a little far from the downtown area but it's in a very nice area. The check in time is 4 and the room wasn't ready and the staff was not even apologetic, he didn't ask if there was something else they could do. Then we reserved a king size bed and they tried switching us to a room with 2 queens and told us nothing is guaranteed when you book through Travelocity. Then they told us breakfast buffets was till 12 and when we came down at 11 they told us no that breakfast was over.

Needs Help

Pros: Starbucks inside the hotel gift shop (which is short on gifts, snacks or toiletries. No retail stores within walking distance)
Cons: Staff uniformity, had no common look, need more customer-focus training. DO NOT CHARGE FOR WIFI in rooms! Clean dirty carpet. Update store.
Location: Outlet stores galore one I95 exit south, golf,& all of St. Augustine attractions a 15 minute ride away. Shuttle to downtown did not run on 4thJuly
Room was not ready upon arrival, but we were an hour early on holiday weekend. OK, returned after 4:00 check-in time at 4:30ish, got room key but check-in desk employee was unsuccessfully trying to help teenager with his Wifi phone problem. They chatrI asked if there wasn't a concierge to help this young guest. Employee's response that she (the concierge) was busy "over there checking in other guests". Aaagh. Couldn't locate bell staff to get luggage we had stored. Really, on a holiday? Finally got to room, missing balcony chair and table - went out to hall to request second chair from housekeeping staff (lucky they were on our floor still cleaning rooms after 5 pm) as there is no "housekeeping" symbol on room phone. That came within minutes. Carpeting noticeably unclean in both hall and room, bathroom floor sticky, toilet low and uncomfortable. Impractical shelving under TV instead of dresser-type drawers. Lobby is Embassy suites revisited. Needs makeover to get to 4 star level.

Very nice hotel. We would stay again. The only thing we did not like is that the pool was very dirty and we would not use it again in that condition

Pool was dirty but if you are not using the pool everything else was very nice.

Nice amenities. Terrible service.

Cons: service
From the moment we arrived and the valet simply stood around until we asked for help we knew it would be bad. The front desk at check in was clueless. Bought drinks at the bar and it took way too long to pay the check. The topper was the next morning when the fire alarm went off at 9 a.m. It happens. I understand. However, when I went downstairs I expected to see managed chaos and staff directing us to either evacuate or go to our rooms. Upon arriving downstairs, I saw guests wandering aimlessly and front desk people just standing at their desk as thought there was no alarm blaring. I then asked a front desk person should I evacuate or go to my room..blank stares then a, "I guess you can go back to your room." That is not the way to run a fire alarm or a hotel. Stay here if you have to - the rooms are nice, the people are not.
