Good option for a short stay!
They have laundry service and the gym was very clean. They also have a playground and a dog park (I don't have pets but I guess for people traveling with dogs this is a plus).

Pet Friendly and Clean
It was beyond my expectations. Pet-friendly the rooms were big and clean. I had the opportunity to get a room with a view to the pool which I loved. My doggies and I had a great time. The breakfast was very good. The pet park was very good too I had a hard time getting hotels pet friendly but this one is the best!

Great St. Augustine adventure
Happily greeted by the guy at the front desk. He even called to check if the room was ok for us after check in and that was very nice and personal. Check in was quick and the room was very clean and neat. Pool was very relaxing and the room was nice clean and the A/C was cold. Comfortable beds too. Next morning the breakfast was on point. Plenty of options. And the checkout guy was just as nice as the one I met the night before. I would 10/10 come here again and refer my friends and family to stay with this place.
