  • Group of friends

    We got a courtesy call after we checked in to see how the room was. I don't think I have had that before.

    A couple of wall plugs around the tv wouldn't hold cords. We couldn't plug up our cell phones to charge.

  • Single

    Location to the Historical part of the city

    Cleanliness of the carpet

  • Group of friends

    Location close to downtown

    Rather old building and interiors - ac very noisy - not worth the pricewe were 3 adults and could not book 1 room with 2 queen beds with Booked.net but had to book 2 rooms whereas we only needed one room.

  • Single
    3.2

    The location.

    The room smelled of bad air freshener which had obviously been used to cover cigarette smoke even though it was supposed to be a no smoking room. The cigarette burns on the sink, tub and rug argued against that. The tub surround was moldy and the ceiling was dirty rusty and moldy. The only reason i stayed in the room was because I had arrived late and had payed in advance on the internet and really didn't feel like arguing about it.

    Location

    Small bathrooms, dirty rugs, ( dust got on our feet).

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    Location is convenient to historic downtown, Raintree restaurant a block away is excellent.

    Front desk staff was curt (at best) - was denied a King room that we reserved, saying none were available even though the motel was not close to full. Very dirty, one of the queen beds had large stain on the mattress (blood?), TV remote didn't work, hairdryer sparked and shorted out. St. Augustine is expensive and this place is moderately priced but would never stay there again.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Nice location near the Raintree restaurant and within reasonable walking distance of the center. Great to stay in a motel where you can open the window and breathe at night without the racket of an air system.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Location and large rooms

    Overall the hotel is tired and could benefit from some upgrading,especially the pool area.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Location. It has its own stop on the stop and go trains. Makes getting downtown easy. However, the trains stop running at 1700. It is within walking distance of the Fountain of Youth, old jail, and old store. To go downtown to old town requires about a 15 minute walk.

    Location: It is about a 15-20 minute walk to downtown or back once the stop and go trains stop runnng.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Location for historical sights.

    This motel should have seen the wrecking ball twenty years ago. The walls and ceiling were in need of spackle and paint. The bathroom doorknob was barely hanging on. There was dirt piled up on the bathroom window sill. The room was generally beat !!!

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Everyone was really nice. I went there to attend my daughters wedding and they got the room ready early and it was clean and they called to see if i needed anything else. I was totally pleased! Other people that attended the wedding stayed in other hotels and did not have such a nice experience. Thank you so much.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Easy access to room from parking lot and great location in relation to historic downtown.

    Did not realize smoking rooms still existed and the room smelled awefull.

  • Couple
    6.2

    The location was great, we were able to walk downtown freely.

    I could have stayed somewhere nicer for the final price we paid. It was not thoroughly cleaned before our stay.....we found a used tampon by the toilet! That is nasty!!!!!

  • Couple
    5.8

    Clean rooms, very nice staff and breakfast ok for American standards

    rooms a bit old

  • Older travelers

    Good location, clean, good coffee, relatively quiet surroundings.

    Desk clerk seemed a little put out that we asked for more coffee.
