Our downtown location keeps guests close to favorite sites like the Spanish Fort Castillo de San Marcos, and the Mission Nombre de Dios. Guests can easily tour St. Augustine by catching the nearby Old Town Trolley or Ripley’s Red Train. Enjoy wine tasting at San Sebastian Winery, or visit the nearby St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum. St. Augustine is the oldest city in the nation. Visitors appreciate impressive displays of Spanish architecture and tranquil beaches. The famed Ponce de Leon, fountain of youth is a short stroll from our ideal downtown St. Augustine location. Whether you rest beneath the shade of “The Old Senator”, the 650-year-old live oak tree on our grounds, or relax under the Florida sun beside our pool. We invite you to be our guest at the Villa 1565 in St. Augustine

Room was clean , well lighted and location to trolly was great as good as it gets. The bathroom was attractive . clean and well maintained. I like the "no carpet" floors throughout the room. The room was very quiet. Will plan to stay at Villa 1565 on next visit to St Augustine .

Hotel's Favourite
Location was a plus for me. This hotel is located within a mile of the main touristic attractions at St. Augustine. Easy access to downtown and the public garage. The rooms are renovated and very clean. Service was prompt and the young lady at the desk was very accommodating. The breakfast is included with your stay and it was pre-pack for you and for the value price not only It was very good, it was more than expected. The beds were super comfortable and the AC was working perfectly. The rooms has a mini refrigerator and a microwave. Also an USB outlet. The lobby has a display of all the things you can do while you staying in town and some of the tickets can be purchase right at the desk. If you don't want to deal with traffic and looking for parking I highly recommend purchasing the hop off and on the trolley ticket (worth it if you starting early in the day)

The room was clean and the beds were very nice. The hotel is located very near all the attractions. The pool was great. The room appeared to be recently renovated. Nice tile flooring throughout, no carpet! The beds were far above average with new mattresses and bedding. There were plenty of pillows. We wanted to be near all the attractions and we were. The trolly ran right out side our door. The pool was clean and attractive. Towels were provided. Overall a great trip and we stayed 3 nights.

This was a nice quiet place. The patio areas were nice and if the weather was good they would be great for hanging out in. The breakfast was included and had a selection of items. I am Gluten Free and they had several things I could enjoy.
