Quick birthday trip was fabulous. Bed and pillows were so comfortable and the view can't be beat. Breakfast was a nice surprise and just right. All staff that we encountered were friendly, efficient, and bent on making our stay delightful. Enjoyed watching the sunset from the chairs by the pool. Can't wait to return.

All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The three front desk people that we encountered during our stay were the best, could have not been any nicer and helpful. The breakfast staff were excellent and the food was good. This was our first visit to St. Augustine we will be back and will stay again at the Marker 8. Thanks to all for making our stay so enjoyable.

The staff are very accommodating, upbeat and helpful. The rooms are clean and basic casual and daily housekeeping is done. The breakfast is delicious and a perfect picture of excellence. The marina location is the definite highlight to view some dolphins and on this trip manatees. Walking distance to historic St. Augustine and to many local restaurants and the St. Augustine Lighthouse. Rates would be better if they were recognized by AAA or AARP. No discounts of any sort seem to be recognized. Social hour was daily with delicious creative appetizers. Parking on site was a great plus. Elevator was very small but successful going from one floor to another. All and all we would entertain staying here again.

This is quite possibly the best hotel I have had the pleasure of staying at in quite some time! I own a marine restoration company and had stayed at the hotel several days on end while completing projects in ST Augustine. Service from check in to check out was flawless, friendly and extremely accommodating. The breakfast included was made in scratch kitchen upstairs with a remarkable view of the harbor,marina and historic bridge of lions. I also heard they have an amazing happy hour poolside in the cozy bar area they have. Location perfect you can easily walk to all the amazing restaurants and historic places both on the island and downtown. I would be hard pressed to find a negative experience other than I was sad to leave! I will be returning again for business and I cannot wait Thank you again for making my experience remarkable!

We stayed here from 12-15th March 2024. The location of this hotel is fantastic overlooking the Intercoastal Bay area. There was plenty to see from here. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and spacious with a comfortable bed and the bathroom had everything we needed. However, our room smelt very musty and mildewy which spoilt our stay. We mentioned the smell to the receptionist who said we just needed to make sure the air-con was on and this would clear it. By the next morning the smell hadn't improved. We spoke to the same receptionist later in the day who came and smelt the room and said he couldn't smell anything. He did however, speak to the owner who offered us to switch hotels to another that they owned just across the bay. We declined this as we were there with another couple and there was only 1 room available at the other hotel. Our friends came and smelt our room and we were in no doubt that there was a very musty unpleasant smell. Another guest who happened to be walking by and heard the conversation came in and agreed that the room smelt!! He mentioned that when they checked into their room, it had obviously had a chlorine wash clean as theirs had a very strong smell of chlorine. The staff that we spoke to about this problem, all seemed to be of the opinion that this is 'normal' in Florida by the water which I would have quite believed it it weren't for the fact that our friends were staying in the very next room 103 which smelt perfectly pleasant. Having stayed in other waterside properties in Florida we have never experienced this problem before. The smell in our room really spoilt our 3 night stay here and despite being told by members of the reception team that management would be in touch and despite numerous emails from us we haven't heard anything which is very disappointing.

Very nice hotel on the intercoastal within walking distance of downtown St. Augustine. Good for exercise before and after dinner! Close enough to walk to the fort and easy to jump in the car and hit some of the island-related activities. The room was comfortable with a nice balcony and the breakfasts were great. Highly recommend.

The room was clean and bed very comfortable. We faced west overlooking the Marina and enjoyed watching the boats coming and going under the lift bridge and the beautiful sunsets. We were able to leave our car at the hotel and walk across the bridge to St Augustine for shopping and dining. Breakfast was not the typical buffet. You sat down and the waitress took your order off the daily included menu items and brought them to you. The help was very friendly and courteous. The desk people were also very friendly.
