4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

very nice stay for one day- clean and the pool was deep and has a lift for disability. Parking charge was a surprise, no food in the Hotel for Breakfast. good food next door. It was easy to get around town from hotel to all location on foot.

In the lovely city of St Augustine you could not find a motel in a better location. The Spanish fort is less than 100 yards to the left and the Bridge of Lions is a little over 100 yards to the right. Between these two iconic sights is the water front with a long walk way built for strolling along with cafes, bars, and a very old B&B.

The old town is highly pedestrian friendly and you can and should walk everywhere (weather permitting) Very interesting historic area with all the trimmings.

This is an older motel that has gone through several rehabs and they've done a pretty good job. There is a large covered patio overlooking the street and the waterway.

The TV had 30 channels but no channel listing could be found in the room. None.

Room Tip: The motel is in the shape of a U and the best water view would be a room in the base of the U. Park...

Enjoyed the great view and overall room at this hotel. Nothing classy but the location was suburb and the staff great. Good rooms for the money I paid. The view was of the intercoastal.....almost picture perfect. Stores and restaurants within one block and some closer. Horse/buggy rides accross the street and trolly right in front of the hotel. Great location.

PROS: This hotel was in an excellent location, the view of the bay amazing, rooms are clean and comfortable (bed was amazing), FREE WIFI, - even had the stop for the tourist trolley right outside the hotel.
CONS: Room inside needs updates it just looks tired and dated.

Room Tip: 2nd floor have better view of bay

Although the location is good, the hotel is not. The biggest problem is the dirt. When we walked barefoot in the room our feet wre filthy. Another problem was the uncaring staff. The person at the front desk appeared to be annoyed that we arrived too early. We waited several hours and came back but our room was still not ready and the clerk still seemed annoyed at us. We have stayed in 10 hotels on our 5 week trip from New Jersey to Florida and this is the only hotel we were treated so rudely. Between the unfriendly attitude and the filth, this hotel is just not worth it. We will not return.

As part of my families yearly 3 week road trip to Florida, we stayed in a twin room on the 2nd floor - poolside (next to Meehan's pub). Our room was cozy, clean and very comfortable and view from balcony was beautiful. The pool area was very clean with plenty of good quality fluffy towels provided. Indeed, the premises is kept in great shape for a 2 star hotel.

All of the hotel staff we engaged with were very friendly and helpful. Car parking can be tight but we had no problems. It would be great if a basic breakfast was provided as per other Best Westerns.

Location is fantastic - in the center of the old town but with no noise! This is a well run premises and we look forward to returning next year.

Room Tip: Rooms in front of pool offer great views

This hotel is ok
The room was clean, well prepared, and there were facilities such as ice machines, soda machines and aircon. However i would describe everything as a bit tired, and it would benefit from modernisation which could make this hotel a wonderful place.
The location is absolutely wonderful; overlooking the bay and within easy walking distance of all the main attractions of this amazing city.
Overall, if the lovation is the main thing for you, stay here, but if you want luxury please do not.
