Positive Reviews

Watch the sunrise

Not only is the hotel in the perfect spot to explore on foot all St Augustine has to offer, but the hotel's spot on the bay, with beautiful views of the water, compels multiple guests to seek out an early morning spot on the upper deck to watch the world wake up. It is said to make for a truly memorable stay.

Excellent staff

Many guests are quick to point out the professional and helpful staff who work at the hotel. They are always ready to offer recommendations for local bars and places to explore around the historic township, and if there's a problem with the rooms or amenities they are immediately on top of a solution.

Safe area

Those traveling alone or with families have no need to feel unsafe at any time of day, as guests note the hotel and surrounding area are very friendly and hospitable.

Negative Reviews

Small parking lot

Those guests arriving to the hotel by car might want to make sure they check in as early as possible, because some notice that the parking lot tends to fill up quickly and it can become hard to maneuver - especially on weekends.

A little noisy at night

Due to the proximity of a local bar, certain parts of the hotel are prone to music and noise after dark. While many guests say it does not affect their overall experience of the hotel and some even find it does not keep them awake, those sensitive to noise may want to keep a pair of earplugs nearby.

Small rooms

Because the hotel is a restored 1950s building, the rooms - and especially the bathrooms - available are unfortunately pretty cozy, and some guests who are used to being able to spread out feel that they are too cramped.
