Stayed at this place with my son because we were in town for music festival that was excellent. Got back from the show and yes it was late but the key didn't work. Went to lobby and this guy not only called me a bad father but would not let us back in room unless I paid more money because...

This guests occupancy can not be verified that they ever stayed at this location. We have towels available at the front desk after housekeeping leaves for the day and rooms are serviced in the mornings and towels offered. Quiet hours are normally from 10 Pm-6 Am and staff has to investigate noise when other guests call the front office about...

We spent 1 night to visit family on our way south, room needs updating,was dark and shabby. Shower had no water pressure and the temperature of the water kept fluctuating. When we called to reserve, the people that answered were not very friendly. Never was informed about a $20. Deposit, when the room was paid in full upfront. Not enough...

Knights Inn S, Front Office Manager at Knights Inn St Augustine/Historic District, responded to this review

All guests are told about the deposit and it is collected at time of check in to hotel. It is an incidental charge and is not included in the cost of the room. Other hotels will charge one full night or require a billable credit card to book your reservation. Same thing as other hotels just a lower deposit than...

Booked throught Trivago...some how switched us to hotwire. Advertising pet friendly...got there...Diane stated they were not pet friendly...." If we tried to sneak our pet in they qould charge $150...would not let us cancel nor get refund. We would not stay with filthy, rude service. Called Hotwire no help there...we will let our credit card company dispute it.

We do not advertise that we take pets. Some reservations are non-cancel able and it depends on where and who you book your room with. Always call the property direct before booking a room and ask the questions you need answers to first. The internet may direct you anywhere and that is not the work of the hotels. Most of...

Extremely Dirty Run Down. You would be better sleeping in your car. You will not want to touch a thing and especially do not remove your shoes!! The carpets are beyond disgusting, I sprayed the entire room down with Lysol and nothing could help the smell and dirtiness of this place. Our curtains would not even close and we found...

We can not verify this person as a guest. May have possibly stayed with someone else for free. We have both smoking and non smoking rooms available. The guest chooses which type of room they are getting. All rooms require a $20. or $50. deposit depending on the terms of the reservation and type of reservation. We do not have...

Had to book room in parking lot--to get Trivago rate. Next morning Office locked @ 6 when we expected coffee. After a few knocks my husband was admitted to our breakfast of packaged donuts but we did get our coffee. Yeah, the $20 is a real rip-off. Dude told me to get the hell out. Took 6 trips to the...

Knights Inn S, Public Relations Manager at Knights Inn St Augustine/Historic District, responded to this review

We have no control of where you book your room, whether in your car or at your home. People see different rates advertised for different days of the year and expect the lower rates to be during prime time or special events. Putting the correct date and correct number of people that will occupy the room gets you the correct...

Knights Inn S, General Manager at Knights Inn St Augustine/Historic District, responded to this review

We are not familiar with this party from December 5, 2016. Perhaps they should give more information identifying themselves. Credit card deposits are released back to the credit card and guest is only billed for the amount of the room plus taxes. Release is generally made the same day unless party did not check-out and/or left their property in room...

So...I always try to have my expectations somewhat aligned with reality. I knew I was staying at a "motel" and probably not a newer place. And there was nothing terribly wrong here...just a lot that was not quite right. To start: The room was reserved through Orbitz and advertised as a smoking room. We were put in a non-smoking room....

Thank you for your review. We do not advertise smoking rooms through Orbitz. Your reservation was for NDD1 which is a Non-Smoking room with 2 full size beds. At check-in you received the exact room that you booked through Orbitz. Orbitz does not advertise smoking rooms for this property. Your misunderstanding is in that they offer smoking rooms and this...

Thank you for your review! Actually, it is a working fireplace! A delivery may have been nearby because UPS just left the lobby. Otherwise, we do not know of what clutter you are referring to. Not all tasks can be done immediately to every ones' discriminating taste and convience. Otherwise, the fireplace contains the normal required operational features as designed...

The hotel can not change the terms of your reservation and it is your responsibility to read the booking terms and conditions. Some reservations require a 24 hour advance notice of hour of check-in to cancel. Some reservations can not be cancelled at all because there are special terms and conditions/rates that apply. Some reservations require a valid and billable...

The biggest mistakes I have made was booking a hotel that I had to prepay. We booked a two night stay at the Knights Inn in 2500 N.

We question the validity of this review based upon the information given. The hotel is located in the Historic District but is not located downtown, nor do we advertise that we are located downtown. Quite the contrary in that our staff is trained to check in guests according to our check in policy. Any time a guest does not wish...
