Stayed at this sweet little inn while traveling with family and was pleasantly surprised. After reading the reviews online I felt confident booking this room and was not disappointed. It's certainly not fancy but it's clean, quaint, efficient and has everything you could possibly need for a great nights stay. I was very happy they had a refrigerator in the...

This hotel is less expensive then most of the better hotels in town. No luxury, no frills, but very good value. It is not centrally located but sits right across from the northernmost stop of Ripley's Red Train, which takes you all over town and allows on-off at all its many stops. Rooms were clean and well kept in spite...

We stayed there the week after Christmas,and it was the most crowded in St. Augustine that we ever experienced. The staff did it best to keep up with all the guest demands. The breakfast was well stocked, and plenty of choices. We did have a problem with room tidy up. We let the desk know and they gave us supplies...

Southern Oaks is a well located and fairly large old fashioned motel. It is pet friendly. It was well filled over New Year's weekend when we were there. The rooms are functional but old fashioned. There is a pool but we did not use it. Breakfast is cafeteria style in a large breakfast room and was just OK.

Room was clean and seems to have been updated in recent years. (Though not run down by any means, Southern Oaks seems to have some "history."

First off, the staff is an A+ here as far as friendliness goes. Well done. The property itself is not at the level the hotel is ranked. It is limited service and it is priced along where it should be in this market so I am taking that into account. You can tell the hotel was renovated fairly recently. The...

We stayed here for about four days. We had a good stay. The staff was approachable and efficient, we didn't have any issues. The complimentary breakfast was a good start to the day. The WiFi was a blessing too. All in all, it was an easy-going stay, and made our trip in St Augustine comfortable.
