Room was comfortable. Bed was comfortable. Had kitchenette. Nice to keep your drinks cold. Staff very friendly. There is no elevator and we were on second floor. Staff offered to help with our bags! Best part is breakfast. This is almost like a bed and breakfast. Breakfast was fresh each morning. Real scrambled eggs not those fake kind you get...

My wife and I have been visiting the beach house for several years now. First, they are not breed restricted and always welcome us and our 🐕 ( friendly Rottweiler). The staff are always accommodating. Miss Janie's breakfast's are amazing homestyle cooking and her grits are the best we have ever had! The front desk staff are always helpful and...

Location - location - location is how I have to start. This is the ONLY property in Vilano Beach that is ON the beach. This was our second visit in as many years. It was our 36th anniversary, but this year we brought along our recent family addition (a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel). Rooms were spacious (nearly 500 sq. ft.!!)...

Many, many thanks for your wonderful review! Our staff is very appreciative of your comments as they all try very hard to extend a warm and helpful welcome. As a small property, our folks often wear several hats - but the goal is always to do our best to make sure guests are comfortable and feel at home with us....

St. Augustine Beach House is a small, pet and people friendly hotel steps away from Vilano Beach. The rooms are clean and spacious . What's missing is end tables and table lighting . The breakfasts are real eggs and homemade coffee cakes! Yum! We will definitely return.

My hubby and I stayed at a beautiful bed and breakfast there for two nights.. cool in November yet quiet, wide beach to walk on for the sunrise and sunsets! Sand dunes. Great restaurants to pick from!! We will love to go here again someday! St Augustine is historically beautiful!! Lots to see and do!! Enjoy!!

Best feature is the friendly staff from the front desk to the restaurant. All rooms have an ocean view which is unobstructed. The breakfast is homemade, varied and delicious A little dated but spacious and clean

There's a lot of love in this place. You can tell everyone who works there cares about it, and that makes it feel good to stay there. A bit threadbare in places for the price, but it's pretty much the only beach-front option. We stayed on the third floor. All the units face the beach. Left our windows & doors...

After much research, we booked a room at the St. Augustine Beach House Hotel for our spring break trip. Overall, we had a positive experience, like many of the other reviewers.

Thank you for your review; we will certainly take your comments to heart and regret you had housekeeping issues during your stay. Four guests in a room can sometimes present a challenge to clean thoroughly around guest items, but we will absolutely resolve to do a better job next time you visit. The beach recovery project was announced, but we...

First let me start off by saying this is an excellent location and just steps to the beach with water views from every room a small balcony. But if your looking for a Hotel with a gym and a fancy swimming pool and lots of extras...well this is not that place. If you want to enjoy the Ocean and not...

Right on the beach. Every room faces the beach... especially from second or third floor. Staff is very dog friendly. Rooms very clean and larger than your standard hotel room. Nice breakfast and afternoon "tea and sweets" was a welcome touch during an unseasonably cold stay.

“Third floor ocean side has lovely views but there is no elevator so you will have to shlep your luggage up -- although they offer help.”
