Going to conference in St. Augustine and have a few days afterwards to relax & enjoy the area from March 22 to 24. Looking for advise for Lodging & more. Open to staying anywhere along the coast from Fernandina to St. Augustine. I do understand Jacksonville is not a tourist destination, but I will already be here and trying to make a vacation out of it with my girlfriend.
After looking through the forums, Spirit recommended Seahorse Oceanfront Inn and I like it for the most part, the balconies, views, but I would like the rooms to be more modern. This is a more extreme but good example, http://www.hoteldeerwoodpark.com. I simply would like the interior design to not look like it has not been upgraded since the 80s/90s. And most the hotels I have checked out, do. Some of the B&B's have a classic vintage aesthetic & that would also be great.
Any suggestions? Open to Hotel, B&B and so on.
- A pool
- Preferably near the beach.
- Beautiful scenery
- Modern Aesthetic
- Bar located in hotel or nearby
- Room Service a plus
- Close to night life a plus
- Of course $150 and below a major plus.
Probably going to rent a car to see the coastline. My girlfriend is not much for activities, she is happy as a clam just to lay on a beach all day. Which beaches should we check out? I like water related activities. Kayaking sounds fun, as well as boat tours etc.
Thank you greatly for your time!
