“Great hospitality”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

My sister and I stayed here on a recent trip tp St. Augustine. I cannot say enough postive things about the staff. They were all very friendly and helpful. Staff is not at the desk all night. We had a plumbong problem about 11:30 p.m. Called the GM who was there within 20 minutes to solve the problem. He didn't act annoyed or anything about the late hour. Get his recommendations for restaurants becuase he was right on. Breakfast is included with the room price. It was all home made: french toast, bacon, potatoes, sauage, biscuits and gravy, etc. Hotel is not within walking distance to Old Town, but it is easy to get there by car or trolley. There is a trolley pick up right at the hotel. Rooms are sufficient but plain. Not a picture on the wall. Nice laminate floors; good inroom coffee; plenty of towels. For the amount of time spent in the room, it was a good value and I would stay there again. Very important to me--THE ROOMS WERE VERY CLEAN!!!!

Great hotel for price and location. Close to all attractions, some in walking distance (Old City Jail, Fountain of Youth). Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included, nice selection. Pool was clean and refreshing. Nice fenced in exercise area for pets.

Pleasantly surprised. This hotel was a great find. The people at the front desk were very friendly and very helpful. The rooms with hardwood flooring was very nice and quiet. The location made it easy to navigate to downtown, the beach as well as the outlet mall. Great place!!! Thank you.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Southern oaks inn in the beautiful St. Augustine Florida recently. This hotel exceeded my expectations. From the outside it doesn't look like much but oh my the service is top notch.

On entering we were greeted by the sweetest ladies who made check in easy and got us directed to our rooms so we could start exploring. Our rooms was wonderful very spacious and clean. Plus it came with two queen beds which was awesome.

The room was fully stocked with all the amenities one could need. From towels, to bathroom supplies to my much needed coffee.

Plus the bathroom was clean with no mold growing anywhere. that truly impressed me. It's all about the little things.

The outside area was also clean with plenty of parking space. the pool was nice it even came handicap accessible with chair lift something most hotels don't think about. also because this hotel is pet friendly they had a dork park for walking your dog.

In the morning you are offered a wonderful breakfast. Kimberly our cook and server rocked. The breakfast is better then I have had anywhere it was a full course breakfast of eggs, meat, potatoes, grits, bread, bagels, cereal, coffee, juice and lots more.

I have to say this was one of the best places we have stayed at in St. Augustine. Everything was of high quality and the staff was very helpful and friendly. If you ever stay in St. Augustine look them up and oh ask for Caroline at front desk she can tell you where to eat and what to visit she really knows the area. This is definitely on our must return list of hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for Caoline she can tell you anything you need to know about the area. She can even give you a l...

We came down a few days early so we could mix a little pleasure with business. The room rate and previous reviews is what drew me in initially, but it is the great staff that will bring us back! Great from check in to check out! A shout out to Carrie and Stephanie as they both made my husband and I very welcomed. They put out a delicious country breakfast each morning that would cost you at least $20.00 for two elsewhere... Fresh scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage patties, hashbrowns, cheese grits, homemade biscuits, french toast and more.. If you're looking for crepes and croissants, then you may not be happy, but if you are looking for a hearty and delicious country breakfast, then this is your place! Did I mention it's Free with your stay? Even though we came to breakfast a little later one morning, there was fresh food awaiting us, and we didn't feel we were getting the "leftovers" because we came in just before breakfast ended. The room was clean and comfortable, and although we were not traveling with our pet this trip, it is nice to know that he is welcome. The hotel is very easy to find off the interstate. The Red Trolley Tour stop is right across the street. The only suggestion I can think to improve upon, would be to hang a couple of pictures in the room to cozy it up, but that's just my style and I wouldn't take off a star for that.

I went there for a weekend and was positively impresses. The location is perfect, near the old city but far enough to be quiet. The rooms were super clean, good mattresses and linens and no carpet on the floor!!!! Just a nice clean laminate, loved that. The price is excellent and the only thing that was poor was the breakfast. Overall I think is the best thing you can get in this price range.
