This was my family's first trip to St Augustine and we wanted to stay on the beach. We opted to book the Magic Beach Motel because it was half the price even though we couldn't see the beach from our room. It didn't bother us because the price was so great that it allowed us to do so much more...

I almost don't...

I really liked this motel. The customer service was phenomenal. It was the perfect little cottage size with a mini fridge. The king sized mattress was very comfortable. I like that you're a 1/4 mile from the beach or even less. Took us 2 minutes to walk to the beach. Publix is right around the corner and just a couple...

Friendly service, spacious rooms some with kitchenettes, kitschy decor, refreshing pool, nice selection of breakfast items, the best of what you want on the road. Like staying with friends. Beach is just steps away. Restaurants and groceries within walking distance. We can't wait to go back!

We were so excited to come here and we can't wait to come back with the rest of the family. Everyone is so friendly. The accommodations were great. Everything was very clean. The beach is just steps away and it is a gorgeous beach. Perfect vacation.

The best part about the motel is the location since it is a short walk to the Atlantic ocean. It is an older motel which I am fine with but the room had a moldy and mildew smell to it. The pictures on the website look great but in person the place was run down. Pool was dirty as well....

Good location just minutes outside St Augustine. This is a locally owned and run Motel. It is not right on the ocean but just a couple minutes walk. The kitchenette was nice and a good size. Bathroom was huge but wished there were some hooks to hang towels, etc. Very clean with fun murals hand painted in the rooms. Pool...

It was within walking distance to the beach. It isn't on the beach. It had a continental breakfast. There were more than 10 dead bugs near the window. When trying to use the Jacuzzi tub, scum and black stuff shot out of the jets. We had to drain the tub 3 times before it was clean enough to take a...

My husband and I found the motel to be clean, quiet with a retro feel and very close to the beach .We had a microwave and refrigerator in the room. We were also minutes from the attractions we had come to see. The staff was friendly and helpful.
