“Our new weekend get-away home”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

My wife and I enjoy getting away to St. Augustine, and have now found our new weekend home. Currently 50% through a complete remodel, Southern Oaks is your best choice in town. The rooms are clean with beautiful hardwood floors and ceramic tiled bathrooms. The toilets and tub/showers are new, as are all of the faucets. New beds, TV's, refrigerators, 10 cup coffee-makers, and modern and very stylish furnishings make this a wonderful experience. While the Inn is not new, yo wouldn't know it from the cleanliness and outward appearance. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The included breakfast was more than you will find in most hotels. Our stay was on a Friday night (Valentine's Day) and was all that we could ask for.

The staff is super friendly, super clean rooms, love the location, the breakfast is delicious. I could not believe how clean everything was love the place. I will be recommending this to all my friend and family. Trolley stops at the hotel which was a huge bonus. The rooms are all newly renovated, very quiet and welcome atmosphere. I really did enjoy my stay.

We spent valentines weekend here and had a great time! The staff is fabulous! The rooms are very comfortable. They are renovating and they only place guests in rooms that have been recently remodeled. The water pressure is not the best but it is doable. The beds are extremely comfortable. The staff made sure we had everything we needed and even left fresh baked cookies in our room for arrival.

Room Tip: These rooms are newly renovated and the beds are very comfortable.

Just wanted to leave a review for any who are searching for a true pet friendly hotel in the St. Augustine area. We were very pleased with the location, cleanliness, and hospitality of this hotel. It's not a fancy looking place on the outside but the rooms are very nice! They have been recently remodeled and have wooden floors which I believe helps in the cleanliness of the rooms (they do not smell "pet friendly"). Others have commented on their extra blankets smelling moldy. This was not the case for us. The extra blankets we had were the white heavy cotton ones and they smelled fresh. There may be other hotels that are pet friendly in St. Augustine. I cannot compare those with Southern Oaks because I haven't stayed at them but I will say that the staff and the grounds of this hotel truly are friendly to you and your pet. My family and I enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend this hotel!

We booked our stay online, based upon price, location & newly renovated. All that & much more!

We arrived quite late on Thursday night, without that night being reserved. They not only accomodated our early arrival but discounted that night's stay as well.

Rooms are not fancy, but immaculately clean-walked around in white socks & they stayed that way. Nicely remodeled, brand new beds & bedding, very comfy. Staff was warm & friendly, made us feel like we'd known them a lifetime!

Great price included breakfast...expected "continental style", but so much more, not to mention delicious! Breakfast casserole, eggs, bacon, home fried potatoes...home made biscuits & muffins, sausage gravy, waffles....I could go on & on. Gwen is an awesome cook!

Crafts for the kids on Saturday & Sunday mornings was a nice added bonus.

Very convenient to all local attractions-next time would use the trolley service, as traffic & parking is a bit of a bear.

Pet friendly...didn't have our dog with us, but they have a really large & nice doggie play area/run that I saw in us by guests. That said, also want to mention that there was absolutely no animal smell...anywhere on that property or in rooms.

Remodeling still going on, but never heard any noise to speak of.

We will definitely be back again, when it's warmer so we can also enjoy the pool! Would recommend to anyone.

This motel is unimpressive from the street, but service was fantastic, and our room was clean and comfortable. The owners are bringing a major renovation to a close, so a few small things are still outstanding (e.g., robe hooks in the bathroom). We stayed over a weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the hot breakfast buffet which was set in a spacious room. We would certainly consider staying here again.
