              Shabby appearance. Towels were frayed and had holes in them. Likewise, the draperies in the room. Heavy layer of dust on fixtures in bathroom.

              The staff was very friendly and willing to accommodate; although difficult to understand due to language. The place was great; small and kind of tucked away on the beach. I would definitely stay again if I'm in the area.

              It was a great experience and far exceeded by expectations for what I paid. It was very clean, updated room. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and the location was convenient to sites and the beach. There was a complimentary shuttle service to the historic area of St. Augustine that was great. Would definitely stay there again!! Cathy W. Indian Trail, NC

              The beach nearby

              The street running in front of the hotel, at morning very noisy

              I was pleasently surprised at the breakfast. Most hotels offer a continental breakfast that typically has fruit and pastries. You took a step further and it was very appreciated. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

              The only complaint I had was that the room I stayed in #209 felt quite humid even though I had the a/c on. Humid enough that it made the carpet feel moist.

              Nice comfortable mattress. I upgraded to a ocean view, but was still charged for the initial booking. My card was charged $104.50 on Sept 7th for the ocean view and on the 8th I was charged $71.50 for the initial booking. I have talked with the hotel manager and he assured me he would refund my money.

              Damp musky smell; otherwise, happy to have had such a nice ocean view.

              The best continental breakfast I've ever had, complete with belgian waffle maker! Great location, quiet small hotel only minutes away from the busy downtown and the beach across the street. Upstairs rooms have own balcony which is nice.

              Bed was not comfortable (compared to my Kluft mattress none are). Hotel decor outdated but room was insect free!

              The beach is accross the street. About 3 miles to center of St. Augustine. Staff was friendly and accomodating.

              The facility needs some maintenance but was clean. AC was very load. Room smelled a little of mold and was damp from the AC. However, this is a beach hotel and was great for a weekend. Clue: take a second floor room on the beach side.

              It said they offer free wireless but it did not work. I tried connecting my laptop and I was not able to.

              The room was comfortable and clean.

              The grumpy old man at the front desk and I was lead to believe it was on the beach. Could not see or even hear the ocean from my room.

              The hotel was right across from the beach was very nice. The lady at the front desk was nice. We only stayed one night.

              The reserved room was available upon arrival - even though I had a late arrival. I have read comments about requested room types (at other facilities) not being available when booked through third-party websites. I was able to park outside my room, and access through a sliding glass door made loading and unloading efficient. The room's appliances were as advertised and the sink in the room was a bonus. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage. A selection criteria was breakfast - and it was a little better than expected, since hot eggs and sausage were included.

              Freindly staff great breakfest excellant for the money I didnt think it would be nice for the money but extremly nice for the value of the dollars great community to bring family many things to enjoy very good area was not worried about my car or room when I left my belongings will stay at location for now on would sugguest people on budget to stay clean friendly great free breakfest the area is very quiet even though a1a runs straight in front of hotel but was very nice and peaceful

              The hotel is on the beach but aia runs in front of hotel and you have to walk across a1a to get to beach so it is like playing frogger at certain times in the day to come and go from beach area but the hotel has a nice steps and walk path there beach has a private area the surf is a little ruff not for children to young my son is 11 he loved it he actually was able to surf great area I thought that it would be loud but it was not at all very quit area

              What a friendly getaway! Our room with ocean view from our small Balcony was worth the extra cost, but beware. You are sleeping on route a1a, which is busy. The rooms at the back of the building faces the sunset and pool, which may be better for light sleepers. To get into St. Augustine, you need to drive about 10minutes, but staying at the Beach full of shells, was worth it. Loved the staff, and breakfast was juice, fresh fruit, cereal, eggs, waffles, sausages, yogurt, bagel, and donuts.....hot, convenient, and money-saving.....a good start to the day!

              Bathrooms needed updating, but all worked fine.

            • Older travelers

              I liked that we were near the ocean and in a quiet area. I wanted to be near St. Augustine, but not directly in the downtown area. We were close to all the attractions and sites.

              I had to print Mapquest directions because we were going to Atlanta next for four days on our way back home. The sign posted said that there was a $2.00 charge per page for printouts on the computer. We paid the $4.00 fee for the two pages. I am willing to pay to have something printed. However, I think $2.00 a page is excessive. Most of the other hotels that I have stayed in print for free. I think 25 to 50 cents a page would have been more reasonable.
