Perhaps not the boutique hotel they advertise, but clean, comfortable, and highly functional. When we checked in, we were told not to drink the water or brush our teeth with it (boil alert) which was OK because there was free bottled water. The ban was lifted but we were still uncomfortable drinking the water but by then the free water had run out. Ok, plan B--vending machine. Neither worked and one took our money. The front desk person would not give us a refund---who knows why---but the nice maintenance man Dwayne did, out of his own pocket! He assured us he would get reimbursed the next day.

Stayed: July 2014

Thank you for taking the time to send us your positive feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience of a very rare occurrence of a water main break, but we're glad to hear that you took advantage of the free, complimentary bottled water during the boil warning. Given the nature of the previous need for bottled water, our stock was depleted, however the boil warning had been lifted early that morning. Again, we apologize for any inconveniences and we hope that you'll consider us for any future accommodations.

Kind Regards,

Scott Overton, Sr.
General Manager

Loved the hotel it was nicely renovation. Staff was super friendly and answered all my questions about the town and made suggestions on where to visit. I will definitely stay again and recommend to friends when they come to st augustine. It was very convenient to downtown.

The Motel was great they have beautiful and remodeled rooms- the breakfast was fulfilling and well kept. Rooms are surprisingly clean and you could tell they have been taken care of very well-the staff was very nice and management was fun to mingle with. Good bang for your buck and I will be coming back to stay here

We only stayed for one night and got the last room. The room looked brand spanking new and completely remodeled. The hardwood floors and updated furnishings make this hotel look way more expensive than it is. The rooms remind me of ones I've stayed in while traveling through scandinavia. Anyway, for the price you get the nice room, the continental breakfast, and it is fairly close to downtown and everything else you need to get to. I think it is worth it. The only less- than-great thing we encountered seemed to be the staff. Maybe it was just an off few days for them, but my boyfriend and I thought they were somewhat cold in their demeanor. I definitely didn't feel welcomed - it was more like I was a burdening them by showing up at the front desk. Maybe it's just because we left The Cozy Inn that morning and were used to the smiling staff there who converse with you in a personable manner. Like I said before the price for what you get is excellent.

This was the start of our cross country vacation and we spend 3 days in St Augustine. The Jaybirds Inn is a small, uniquely refurbished motel. It was VERY clean and comfortable and seemed to cater to all types of travelers. Breakfast was always stocked and came with a bunch of interesting folks to see and talk to. The downtown area was close and the front desk was friendly and helpful. GREAT TIME!
