Me and my husband did a few days of research and decided on this hotel. Hotel staff was nice, hotel itself is old. Needs renovated badly. Our shower was very dirty and the view was the side of a hill. I knew going in that the beach was across the street, no biggy, HOWEVER room 111 faces a grassy bank/hill. Huge let down for $150/night. I mean, come on...for this price, can I at least overlook the pool or something?! We didn't see any bugs (was actually waiting on them to come out at night) and there was what appeared to be dog hair in the refrigerator. Perhaps our room wasn't even cleaned before our arrival-or cleaned by someone who needs a different job. There are much better places out there....don't be discouraged and let places like this give the whole area a bad name. After riding around the area, we decided that staying in St Augustine Beach would have been better for us. We left and stayed the rest of the time in Jacksonville Beach (30 minutes north of St Augustine) at the Hyatt for $99/night and it's gorgeous AND clean. I can do old hotels as long as they are clean. This one was not. Also, one last note-the pool is very small. Probably the smallest pool you've ever seen. For those who rated this 5 stars, I'd like to see what you're used to staying in!
