It's very nice, new, and clean. We have been visiting Vilano Beach since 2012, most times staying at another ocean front hotel. The Holiday Inn Express here is about 1/4 of the cost of that other hotel. We had room 321 with a balcony with a great ocean view, and far away from the elevator mechanical room noise. Breakfast was good with a nice variety. We used the gym and the pool. Beds are comfy, but those down pillows not so much. Glad I brought my own. It's in the middle of Vilano Rd, which is less than a mile long and halfway between the beach and the pier. The people working there are amazing !!! Every single one was helpful and happy. I know it's a service industry, but even the owner will be around, helping serve breakfast, or working around the grounds. Two employees really stood out...Chantel and Christopher. Both of them were just so extra special nice. Right behind the HIE is Publix, a great grocery store. We found everything we needed there for prepared meals, snacks, even beach items like flip flops and chairs and umbrellas. Soon to open will be a restaurant inside the HIE. The lobby has some snacks available, and fresh coffee is 24/7 . It's only 2 miles from here to downtown St. Augustine, making the location ideal, just a short trip over the bridge.

Hotel's Favourite
I would give 10 out of 5 stars if I could. Phenomenal stay! Gorgeous, modern hotel and an awesome location. You can walk to the beach (!), and it’s a short drive to get to downtown St. Augustine. There’s shopping, family activities, and no shortage of casual & fine dining establishments all in close proximity to the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed (seriously-I cannot remember a hotel stay where I slept so well!). But what takes the cake is the incredible customer service and care provided to us by Mike (the hotel manager) and his team. The restaurant, beach, and activities recommendations we received from the team were spot-on! And, when there was a slight snafu with our room, Mike and his team went above-and-beyond to take care of us! My husband and I love vacationing in Florida, but we have never experienced such attentive service as this. We chose St. Augustine to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary with our family, and I am so glad we did and that we found this hotel. The town is charming and beautiful, the restaurants are top-notch- and we will DEFINITELY book our next trip to St. Augustine to stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Vilano Beach. Thank you so much Mike and team for making this trip such a memorable experience! (Thanks, too, for the thoughtful anniversary card, delicious cake, and goodies in our room to celebrate our anniversary. The very definition of “above and beyond”.)

Overall a very positive experience, especially due to the newness of the facility wonderful hospitality of the staff. Pros: - very clean and new facility - walk to the beach takes 5 minutes at most, and there is a shower/spigot at the beach entrance - workout room and pool are nice (although pool does not open till 9 am) - every room has a large balcony with good view (from the third floor) - beds were comfy - air conditioner in room is reasonably quiet - good selection on complimentary breakfast - everyone on staff was friendly and helpful - plenty of free parking - an onsite restaurant is being completed. Cons: - the rooms are dark because there is only one window and the door to the patio is a solid door, not glass (maybe for hurricane safety?). - There is another hotel being built across the street, so the construction noise starts at 7 AM - The optional larger rooms with two queen beds have a funny layout. A couch is right by the door, but the TV is on the other end of the room, far away from the beds and couch. - The windows do not open, so the only option for fresh air is to prop open the solid door to the patio. - Shower only, no bathtub. If possible, get a room facing the ocean directly, such as 323 or 325. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay. Highly recommended and we hope to return!

mackieman, Thank you so much for your awesome review and feedback (both pros and cons)! I thoroughly enjoyed the lists. We appreciate the things you listed in your cons list so we can improve the guest experience. Yes, we are a category four hurricane proof building which is why the windows do not open and why the balcony door is heavy, so that everyone inside will be safe. Thank you for your compliments to our staff, our breakfast, and everything else you listed. We hope that we will see you again in the near future! Regards, Madison

Stayed here for several days last week. Place was first rate. Property is about 1 year old. Everything is new, clean, and in-order. Breakfast was excellent both mornings. All rooms have Balconies. A Publix is less than 100 yards from the hotel. As is an Italian and Chinese restaurant. About 2 blocks aways is the Beaches restaurant which is very good and on the Tolomoto River and has lots of seating overlooking the river. Sunsets were stunning there. Hotel is about a block from the beach. They have chairs/towels you can borrow when going to the beach. Just several miles from St Augustine. They also arranged for our hop-in/off tour of St Augustine, where the shuttle picked us up at the hotel. Staff was very attentive. Kudos to the owner, Farid, who is there every day. Spoke to him both days during breakfast, he was always making sure everything about your stay was ok. A shout out to Patrick, who was also there, making sure everything was in order. Front desk people were very helpful. Plenty of free parking. Will surely be back.

What a great experience at this resort. My sister and I visited the week of August 22nd for her birthday trip and we absolutely have nothing but great things to say about the resort itself, the people and the food! Madison and Delancey at the front desk were friendly, pleasant and made sure to greet us every single morning with a huge smile on their faces. A gentleman named Patrick made sure to check on us for the free breakfast buffet (tons of yummy food options to include eggs, pancakes and/or waffles, potatos, bagels or toast, fruit, yogurt and an array of juices along with bacon or sausages.) The owner, Farid, even went out of his way daily be it running into you in the common areas OR checking on you at breakfast to make sure all was well. I could go on...I will! Housekeeping - outstanding job and super friendly. You can definitely tell everyone loves working here and we plan on coming back 2023 in August for my sister's birthday again. Can't wait. Regarding our room - clean and fresh smelling with a great balcony that faced the ocean. I couldn't have asked for anything more relaxing. Directly across the street in walking distance is a Publix which was super convenient, a liquor store, and a Puccini's Pizza. (great pizza by the way) Can't recommend this Holiday Inn enough. You won't be disappointed.

We really liked this Holiday Inn. It was very modern, clean and friendly. It was great to have a balcony and we were lucky to be able to see the sea in the distance from our balcony. It was a really short walk to the beach which was ideal. We borrowed bodyboards from reception. This was one of the best hotel chain breakfasts we had on our roadtrip. The owner of the hotel (and all the staff) were so friendly and welcoming. We loved that Vilano beach is quieter than other spots on the beach in Florida and the town had a lovely relaxed vibe. We stayed for 2 nights in July and would love to go back again some day!

We stayed at this location on a family trip along the Georgia and Northeast Florida coast. It was an amazing hotel. The staff was incredibly friendly and very helpful. The last morning there, it seems there was a problem with a toaster or oven. Somehow they made it all work out seamlessly. I never would have known there was an issue at all if someone had not told me. The two bedroom suites are laid out a little differently than I would have expected, but it did not hamper our stay in any way. The first "bedroom" is two beds in the common area- much like a regular hotel room with a little kitchenette. Then you go through another door to the second bedroom which is really nice and quite private. I was thinking it would be like two closed off bedrooms and a common area with a place to sit and the kitchenette. The location is great. The staff is amazing. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We travel to Florida alot. This is but all means the best run hotel we have ever stayed at. The owner is always on the property. He personally sees that everything is okay with your stay. He literally waits on you at breakfast. Every single person on staff has been trained by him and they are the best. Even had a problem with my computer and a staff member fixed it for me. Do you think we love this hotel???

A very clean and spacious room with close access to the beach in one direction or the pier in the other. Across the lot is a Publix for things if you need them. The staff was very friendly and helpful and I can only give them my highest recommendation.
