My boyfriend booked our long weekend here as a birthday surprise for me. It was beautiful. It's definitely a small family owned hotel but it is very clean and the staff were all very nice, you could tell that they love their jobs. Lucy was also a treat!

This was a great place to stay, very convenient to everything and right across from the beach. The balcony overlooking the water was a great way to start the day with a cup of coffee. Lisa, Jenna & Vanessa were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and we were given great tips for seeing St Augustine and for local restaurants.

This hotel is directly across A1A from the beach. Lisa, Melinda, and the rest of the staff are very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Even the hotel cat is friendly. The rooms are comfortable and very quiet; the beds are the very best I've slept in while traveling. We will certainly be returning!

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a charming, small hotel on A1A directly across from the beach with a private motel beach access. Our club booked five rooms last weekend and everyone was pleased with the location, friendliness of the staff, and cleanliness of the rooms. Lisa, Vanessa, Laura, and Melinda treated us like family and they were eager to meet our every need. Would definitely stay there again. Number one on our list: the staff!! They were the best ever.

This hotel was marvelous! My husband and I went there for our honeymoon, and had an amazing time. The staff was very generous and kind. They made us feel very welcome, and even had us considering staying a few more nights! Lisa, Laura, Melinda, and Vanessa were some of the sweetest women we had ever met! We cannot wait to stay here again, no hotel is capable of outdoing this one. The rooms are very clean and conveniently located directly across the street from a beautiful beach. The breakfast selection was above par! We are happy to have spent such a special part of our lives in such a beautiful surrounding. :) Thankyou for everything!

What a nice surprise. Made reservations at last minute. Great rooms, clean and fresh. Staff is great. Pets are welcome and lots of families. It is not the Ritz but you will enjoy your stay. Beach is right across route 1A1 - less than a 100 foot walk.

Me and my family stayed during Spring Break and it was a great, little getaway. Vanessa and Hardy J. are utterly the BEST!!!! Great continental breakfast also... :) Beach was across the street and going with small children was kind of scary, but the weather was kind of chilly so we didnt go.. but it didnt matter because there was sooooo much to do in Downtown St. Augustine. :) DID I FAIL TO MENTION THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT!!~
