I have stayed here a number of times, guests are always treated like family. Service is outstanding. Good breakfast selection, always saves you money if you are traveling with family. Nice coffee bar in the lobby and fresh fruit available all day. Very friendly and hands on manager plus helpful staff including Debbie and Mariealena. I can not imagine staying...

Dear Guest, I am so glad you had a great stay at the Quality Inn Historic. We love to make our guests feel like family and I am so glad it shows. This summer will be an amazing summer so I hope to see you again poolside. Maybe next time you can take advantage of the trolleys that pick up...

lovely staff, the manager was a great guy, Stayed two days, will stay with them again when we come back, very helpful and the breakfast selection was the best out of all the hotels on our trip. The view of the tidal marsh was great too, Pet -Friendly.

I arrived late and I was ill on top of it. The night manager, Ryan W. took care of me and helped me settle into St. Augustine by telling me all the amazing places to visit in the area. Ryan W. allowed me to eat a bagel before I went to bed so I could take my antibiotics, I was...

I got the AAA discount and paid $110.45. I haven't figure out how that was a discount because they advertised 89.99. I called and asked about rooms and they said they had plenty. Since I was en route, maybe 2 hours away and I wasn't completely sure of their location, I waited until I got there to actually get the...

Dear Guest, I am sorry for failing to meet your expectations on your recent visit. I am not sure of the rate on your travel day but rates to change daily they do start at 89.99 and go higher at times on the weekends. I can tell you we are remodeling all of our bathrooms and hope you would come...

Made reservation at this hotel on relatively short botice because it's advertised as being in the Saint Augustine Historic District. At best it's on the outskirts, not walking distance, about a 10-minute drive. That's the least of my complaints. We had a queen suite with a jacuzzi. The hotel is in desperate need of updating/renovation. The furnishings were very old,...

Pretty much more than expected. Inexpensive motel, especially for its location, right in the historic St. Augustine area. Clean, friendly, great breakfast - the new standard of eggs, waffles, fruit, oatmeal, yogurt, juices, breads, . . . . and they were not pushing you out by cleaning up right at the end time of the breakfast like many motels do....

My family stayed at this hotel literally a 3 minute walk to the Historic District strip and extremely conveniently located...We usually stay at 4* or better but could not find accommodations as such. The rooms and carpets were ultra clean and fresh. The beds surprisingly comfortable and lush, bathrooms clean and contrary to the negative reviews, the trains were not...

Its not in the historic district at all. Outside looks like its falling in. The staff lies about the location. Don't waste your money send a little more and stay somewhere nicer. Thankfully I was able to cancel. 125 a night what a rip off.

On the outskirts of 'historical city' but only a 15 min walk. Rooms are ok and clean. We were at riverside and there are freight trains every four hours. If you are a light sleeper, take a room on the other side.

Hotel's name carries "Historic District" in it - must be another historic district, because they're NOT in St Augustine's. Sort of a hotel in Brooklyn claiming they're in Manhattan. Receptionist seemed trained to convince guests otherwise In-room Safety deposit box broke twice. Friendly maintenance guy fixed it but nevertheless, delayed myself and my kids for dinner.
