“Good location for the price”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

We had a weekend stay, very clean room, with friendly staff. Bathroom good size with all the amenities. Not exactly walking distance to old town in the Florida heat, however, very close to drive in car. Especially liked the key access to hotel, as some do not have this extra security on rear access doors.Very happy with our stay at this hotel. Will for sure stay here again.

We booked a king room with whirlpool tub. The bathroom was in need of repair (ceiling was cracked and peeling), but the tub jets worked very well. Sadly it was positioned back from the edge to the point that i could barely get into it (being only 5'4" it was hard to straddle the ledge. I had to hop in and out).
The bed, despite being a pillow top, was extremely firm, and it was rather hard on the joints - we both woke with sore backs.
Sadly as well, the room was right at the side of the pool, with people sitting right outside our window, so we were unable to even crack the curtains.
Internet was very slow; this was in a previous review but as the response indicated they were changing providers, I took a chance. I guess it hadn't yet happened.

The staff were extremely friendly, and the hotel was walking distance to most of the attractions. The price was reasonable for a room with a king and whirlpool tub, it was just not as romantic as hoped for.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I would like to offer an apology regarding the hot tub issues. I realize that the time to fix the problem for your stay has past but we will rectify the issue for the next guest. Also, I see that the bed was not comfortable for you and for that I apologize. As to the Internet, you are correct in noting a prior mention of that problem and we have already had our new provider at the property, so the change over should be completed within a short time. Finally, I would like to thank you for your kind words regarding our staff and we hope to have you visit us again. Take care.

I deeply regret that your experience was not a positive one. Prior to your stay we began a refurbishing effort which included painting on the floor you were assigned. Regarding the Internet, that is another amenity we are in the process of changing to a new provider. I hope that you will continue to use the Holiday Inn brand despite the occurrances in St Augustine. Thank you for your feedback.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a business meeting and had a wonderful time all around. Room accommodates were very nice, and the room in which we had our meeting was perfect for our needs. The breakfast buffet had an excellent selection and everything we had was very good. The main reason I am writing this review is to give kudos to the staff (Janeth in Housekeeping and Nikki in Sales and Michelle at the Front Desk) for recovering my husband's professional camera that he inadvertently left behind... Janeth turned-in the camera when she cleaned our room, Nikki contacted us the next day to tell us that she had it, and Michelle just called to tell me everything was taken care of. Nikki then went out of her way to hand-carry the camera to the local UPS shipping store and took care of the mailing requirements that my husband gave to the UPS clerk over the phone. The Michelle at the front desk called me on behalf of Nikki to let me know that the project had been taken care of. That, to my husband and I, is going above and beyond for a customer and will never be forgotten by either of us!!! Thank you all so much!!!

Room Tip: We did not specify anything regarding a good room, but our room was very nice!

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn downtown St. Augustines for three days in May. It was clean and very quiet. We didn't eat at the in house restaurant because we are not very cost effective at buffet meals but it looked very nice. We would stay there again.

This hotel staff was friendly, and the room was spacious. I did notice some stains and spots on the linens, but the beds and pillows were very comfortable. Overall it was a good experience. We only stayed one night and it was raining the entire time so we basically just stayed in the room, but that was just fine. The room did have a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker which was nice. My husband also enjoyed the comfortable easy chair for sitting and watching television. The main problem with this hotel is that it is not very close to downtown historic Saint Augustine. So if you want to walk it may not be the right place to stay. However, if you don't mind driving down and finding parking then this place will suit you just fine!
