“Good price, great location!”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Beacher's Lodge is on Crescent Beach, and as far as I could tell, it was the only hotel/condo on Crescent Beach. Crescent Beach is great because it is not super busy, but it is still beautiful. Since there aren't many hotels, there aren't a ton of people, which is exactly what we were looking for. The front desk staff at Beacher's was great--very down-to-earth, very real, not fake like chain hotels. We called for a room, then they let us see us before we paid for it when we got there. Did our room have some dated items/pictures? Sure, but I don't go on vacation to look at pictures in my room. It was nice, efficient, good bed, good coffee in the room and the lobby, great cleaning service, nice complimentary shampoo/conditioner/dish soap. We had one of the few rooms not looking over the ocean, but that was fine. Having access to the beach was what we wanted, and beacher's is a nice place to do just that.

We rented two pet-friendly condos for a two-family vacation. The units were side-by-side, so that was a bonus. The beach was amazing! The condos were nicely furnished, although somewhat dated. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. As others have noted, there was a problem with cell service and wi-fi. We could get wi-fi in the bedroom, but not in the living room. This certainly wouldn't keep us from returning. (Be prepared for lots of sand on the floor. It was a little sandy even when we first walked in. However, after staying for several days, I could see how it would be impossible to keep the floors clean. You're just going to have sandy floors if you're right on the beach.) We had a great, relaxing vacation. Overall, I would definitely stay at Beachers again!

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor, which was great for pets and for kids going back and forth between cond...

Not impressed. Pictures are old. Room has not been updated in 7 years. Everything was old and dated. A/C was making noises the whole trip. Daughter said place was a "dump" This was "GOLD" rated unit...really? Wasn't even a bronze. Bathroom was moldy and had no ventilation at all. Place looks like a tenement from the beach...rusty and no charm.
We paid $200 a night---could have stayed at the Ritz for a little more. Will not revisit....help at desk was nice, but units are old and tired--bed felt lousy--not a great visit. Went by ratings--definitely not the truth. Most units rent for less than $100 night prime season...more like a real
budget hotel. Elevators were filthy and smelled...cig butts everywhere...yuck!

Crescent_Beach_Lover, General Manager at Beachers Lodge, responded to this review, 10 July 2013
Each unit is individually owned and we do not have a Gold Rated Unit that has not been updated in the passed few years. We had our entire property photographed in 2012, so the photos on our website are very much true to what is in the room. Unfortunately if we are not made aware of any dissatisfaction there is very little that we can do. We allow our guests to select a room online for themselves and if you make your reservation by phone we are always quick to explain the nuances of our condos. We have a wide range of rental opportunities and we try to be very upfront about the amenities in our rentals. Everyone that stay's in a balcony suite at Beacher's Lodge has a beautiful ocean view and during the busiest time of the year, the rates are high, just like everyone else directly on the beach.
Again we wish we could have taken care of your family's need while you were still here at the beach.

We stayed in unit 409 this week. The unit was comfortably furnished, and the bed was SUPER comfy. We found most of what we needed within the unit, the basics being furnished in the kitchen area. There were plenty of dishes, glasses and cookware. I was pleased to see that dish soap, paper towels, etc were provided. The unit was not "spotless," but it was clean. (This unit has a lot of glass and mirrors, which would be impossible to keep clean.) Housekeeping tidies up and brings fresh towels, soap, etc., daily. They also provided coffee packets. Our unit did provide 2 beach chairs and an umbrella, but we had brought our own, so those were not used. Most of the units face the ocean. Units "1-7" overlook the pool, which would be great for families, but if you want quiet, pick a higher numbered unit. The entire property was well-maintained and clean. Everything in the unit was in good working order. Very comfortable! We will be back!

Room Tip: Rooms "1" through "7" on each floor overlook the pool. We were close to the poo...

Our room was great!! It was like having your own condo on the beach!! We had a first room floor and the views were wonderful. I'm sure the upper rooms had the better view but, we were happy with the sand dunes and oceanview. We enjoyed watching the turtles and rabbits on the dunes!! Our room was near the pool area and boardwalk that leads to the beach, so it was very convenient!! Pet friendly, we have 2 dogs and were very happy to see all the other dogs visiting!! Staff was friendly, and helpful. Only downside was the cell/wi fi service, it wasn't that great!! This hotel is not far from many St Augustine attractions, but your at the beach, away from the hustle bustle of the historic district. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again!! :)

We had a small family reunion and all of us stayed at Beacher's Lodge. The rooms are cozy and have everything you need to enjoy your stay. Make sure you bring beach chairs and equipment as none is offered. We ended up renting some chairs from Big Bill's and were very pleased. Staff was VERY nice. Have breakfast across the street at Murphy's--hole in the wall but amazing. Everyone in our group was very happy with their stay here at Beacher's

Room Tip: Choose a room on the higher floors for a better view of ocean

Our unit was not only spotless but stocked with bath and beach towels, cooking utensils, helpful literature on the area and tons of other little touches. My family and I had fun spending the day on the beach and hopping in the heated pool afterwards. We also had fun looking for sea turtles in the dunes. When we needed a break from the sun, beachers was just minutes from old town, the alligator farm and restaurants. We will definitely be headed back soon!
