So cute and so close to the beach. Great location! (That said, the road in front of the hotel was washed out due to hurricane when we arrived and that complicated traffic and travel time due to only one lane being open. This is very uncommon and should not be an issue for future guest.) The room was nice size. Each room seems to have a balcony or patio. It is just a really cute hotel. Wifi and breakfast was included. They had lots of extras... beach chairs and beach supplies. We weren't there long enough to use them... but hope to return in 2024.

Hotel's Favourite
I booked this hotel for my father and stepmother for their very first trip to Saint Augustine. I was hesitant at first with the negative reviews, but can honestly say it was a pleasant surprise that the hotel was fantastic! I visited my parents and got a tour of the hotel, and then walked across the street to the private beach entrance. That was the winner for me, it was exactly as described! Their room looked exactly how it did in the online photos, and their view (though just a ‘pool’ view, had a view of a little lake behind it and it was gorgeous!) The two of them had a blast and talk about it often, and of course they fell in love with the beach and Saint Augustine! I’m sure all of us will be back soon!

Dates: Arrive 17 November. This is a mixed review - while our experience is rated as average it wasn't an issue with the property per say - we did have one poor experience directly related to the property. When we checked in, the room wasn't clean. There was food from the prior guest in the refrigerator, one of the bottles of water had been all but drained and replaced, and there was plastic bags inside the clothing cabinet. The receptionist on duty (Kate) was EXCEPTIONALLY wonderful and helped us move to another room In fact - KATE was truly OUSTANDING in helping us. First - due to flight delays and the constrution outside the property (I'll discuss that later) we arrived at 2:30AM. She was right there to check us in and, as I mentioned above) she helped relocate us. The major issue was the construction on the roadway. I acknowledge that the roadway construction is not controlled by the property. However, the strobing of lights throughout the night coupled with the noise the construction machines were making (we had an ocean side room) made sleeping difficult. Additionally, the difficulties getting into and out of the property was exasperating. In summary, what was positive about our stay was Kate. She went out of her way to help us. The property couldn't be fully experienced as the constant distraction of the construction was always present.

I was here Saturday 11th & 12 November 2022. First of all, I’d like to say thank you for opening considering you went through that awful hurricane this week. I’m sure it was a lot to get things up and running again so quickly. The room was clean comfy bed, modern amenities with a actual decent breakfast. 😉 It is a Motel so don’t expect anything too fancy, it’s the location, clean room and the friendly stuff. I’d stay here again next time I visit. Plus it’s just a 12 minute drive to downtown St Augustine. Thanks Kate

This is my third time to stay at the hotel. I got a second floor room so I can see the ocean which is across the street. It's a quaint hotel that is near some great seafood restaurants, the beach, and historic St Augustine is a 10-15 drive. The staff is very friendly (Julie and Katie are awesome!) and the location is on the beach; the hotel is located at a spot on the beach that is a little less crowded than the beach further south (in the heart of Vilano Beach).

Apon arrival at check in was greeted with curtiousy and welcoming staff. Mallory went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. I usually try not to spend too much on hotels being on a fixed income but with that said breakfast was included. Traveling with a total family of four staying. I was impressed with the breakfast. They even offer keto friendly options. The breakfast menu options were to please everyone in your group. Great value for the money. Will stay again! Highly recommend!!

This Place really has a hometown feel. The staff Kate Ashley and Mel are so sincere in their help with anything you could possibly want. Restaurants and grocery store are very close so you can want for nothing, The private beach across the street is magnificent. They offer free Beach chairs and umbrellas if you want.
