From Fernandina to St. Augustine: Seeking Lodging & Beachs

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.

Looking for:

- 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!

You would probably like the Ponte Vedra Inn. It's a nice place but it's in a residential area with no restaurants in the area other than the Inn's. You have to drivie a couple miles to get to anything. Someone recently was able to get a special price by calling directly. Take a look at the pictures:

One Ocean Resort is very modern, right on the beach, and in a great area for shopping and dining. It is a little pricey though, but that time of year you may be able to get a deal.
