Historical Traveler Reviews Anastasia Inn Saint Augustine
Not what I expected after reading the reviews on this site
My family and I stayed at the Anastasia Inn for one night on 06/27/05 and unfortunately I was dissapointed after reading all the raves about this property on this website.
The rate was reasonable, but you obviously get what you pay for and for $59.00 a night what we got was a small room with two very unconfortable queen beds and pillows.
The carpet looked worned out and dirty (it had several stains from the doorway to the fridge and sink area) the noisy air conditioner kept malfunctioning throughtout the night and the room was warm.
The door had an inch gap when closed which allowed all the noise from the street to come through, said noisy atmosphere was emphasized by the patrons from the pub that sits accross the street from the hotel.
Speaking of location, they are not within easy walking distance to the historic sites, they are not located in the historic district as they advertise, instead they are located in the Anastsia Island area over the bridge of lions.
The only things I can agree with are that the rate was indeed inexpensive, the staff was courteous and that the pool is quite small, so small that it looks like an oversized hot tub instead of a pool.
I am surprised this property has a AAA rating, it is advertised as a new property but I would have to say that is nothing more than a motel built about 5 to 6 years ago in the process of getting ran down, even the chairs in the office looked worn out, the arm rests had holes in the fabric, that should have been my first clue to leave and stay elsewhere!
My husband and I took my parents to St. Augustine for a three day weekend. I wanted my parents to have a nice relaxing weekend away and I spent a lot of time trying to find the best place. The Anastasia is just over the bridge of lions so it's convenient. I finally made reservations at the Anastasia Inn and crossed my fingers. What a great surprise. The rate was great which scared me a bit. The rooms all have a fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. Best of all, they were so CLEAN. The staff was so friendly. I expected stale doughnuts and old coffee for the complimentary breakfast. Instead I found fresh coffee, bagels, four types of cereal, two kinds of muffins, milk and orange juice! The staff was helpful, answered questions, and even gave us directions. We had such a good time, we're going back this weekend with friends. If I absolutely had to say something negative, the pool is small. This was not a factor for me, I didn't even have time to get in it anyway. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable room at a decent rate, the Anastasia is the place to go.
We travel to St. Augustine several times of the year and have always wanted to stay here but it is always full and now we know why!
We made reservations on the phone and upon arrival had an excellent welcome.
The young lady took time to explain stuff and did not mind answering any of our questions.
Our room was beautiful. It smelt fresh and was spotless. We slept like babies.
The continental breasfast was just what we needed.
We will be staying here whnever we go to St Augustine
I booked 2 nights at this hotel based on the good reviews it has gotten in the past. Someone raved at the size and cleanliness of the room. First, it was just an average sized room; second, remnants of the previous occupants snack of peanuts were on the carpet at the edge of the bedside; the carpet under the bed was thick with dust bunnies.
But worst of all were the beds and pillows! The mattress was only slighter softer than sleeping on a piece of plywood. The pillows were hard and uncomfortable as well. It was nearly impossible to fall asleep and when I finally did, the noisy A/C unit was kind enough to wake me at regular intervals. It was the worst night's sleep I'd gotten since I brought my son home from the hospital following his birth.
I cancelled my second night and reserved a room at the Castillo Real on A1A South. World of a difference! No noisy A/C unit, the king sized bed was super comfy, the room was large, clean and beautifully decorated. I paid $40 more, but it was well worth it. I would not recommend staying at the Anastasia Inn unless you are a masochist.
A Great Clean Hotel
For the price I paid for this room, I couldn't believe the cleanliness and size of the room, not to mention it having both a microwave and a small fridge. I whole heartedly recommend this fine facility. The bed was very comfortable, also.
This is the best motel I've ever been to! Very clean with refrigerator, microwave, in room fresh coffee everyday. Staff courteous and helpful. We stayed 6 nights. Atmosphere very quite. Pool small but clean and grounds well kept.
Great Price, Great Place to Stay
This was a great place to stay in St. Augustine. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The rooms are nicely furnished and very, very clean, and the staff kept them clean every day. The continental breakfast is a plus.
Great location, just across the Bridge of Lions. For $15 for three days, the Beach Bus picks you up right in front of the motel and brings you downtown. The $15 includes a three-day pass on the trolley, which brings you around the city and lets you on and off at a dozen or so different stops.
Best place in town
The best place to stay. Reasonable price and very, very clean. Friendly staff who will go out of their way when you check in to help you with questions. Ideal location. Very quiet at night. Pool was perfectWill stay there whenever we go
Excellent place to stay
We like to visit Saint Augustine every year and this time instead of camping we decided to stay in a hotel. We had reservations in another hotel already but then we called Anastasia Inn and found out about theirs rates and decided to reserve there. We don't regret it. The room was so clean and the service so good that we will definitely go back next year and it is so close to many of the towns attractions that we only had to walk to get there. We will definitely recomend it.
We live in Florida and travel around quite a bit. Hotels / motels in Florida are for the most part over expensive and generally a rip off. You gets what you pays for and many times you don't get what you actually did pay for!! Kissimee and St Augustine are 2 very good examples. Kissimee is a crap shoot, mostly crap not too much shoot unfortunately. St Augustine is just expensive - way more than it warrants. However if you want to stay somewhere that is actually pretty honest in that berg The Anastasia Inn is kinda nice. My wife and I stayed there in August 2001 for a quick break. It was about $60 per night, expensive for off season (August is off season in Florida - it is frighteningly hot and muggy, more of an endurance test than a vacation, but anyway). The asian owners are super professional they obviously have experience in the "accommodation" business. The entire experience had elements about it that normally you would only taste at a more expensive establishment. The "continental" breakfast that was included was actually worth getting. It consisted of small muffins, real bagels (again small) and the coffe wasn't bad. Better than the stale doughnuts (still in the Dunkin' Doughnuts box) and coffee that is so weak you can see the bottom of the styrofoam cup one usually is treated to in Florida. In the room the furniture was very nice and beautifully taken care of. The beds were very comfortable and the room service was extremely good. In the room there was a fridge and coffee/tea making facilities a la British style. The room was ina word CLEAN!! I have stayed in some fancy hotels in the far east where they know what the word "service" actually means and this was approaching that level of pleasantness. Overall this motel was clean, efficient, quiet and most importantly HONEST. Now some negatives, there has to be some right? The "swimming pool" is a joke. It is so small it should be a comical attraction. Do not allow the fact that this place has a pool swaugustine!! Head for the Red Roof Inn if that is really important to you, however I think you will regret it. #2 remember that St Augustine is divided in 2. The Bridge of Lions separates the 2 halves. The Anastasia Inn is on the wrong side of the bridge. It is just over the bridge, however you wouldn't want to walk it. You have a car though don't you? Come over to the other side of the bridge, park up (you can still find free spots) and jump on the little train that bombs around the interesting places. It'll be fun, trust an old Brit with 20 years in Florida. Enjoy St. Augustine and don't get too ripped off. Oh by the way don't go near the "British Pub" a few miles outside the city, it is super expensive and only has a passing resemblance to English food. 'Nuf said. Steve

... town on several occasions in the next century. Clashes between the Spaniards and the British became more frequent when the English colonies were established in the Carolinas, and later, in Georgia. As a consequence, the Spanish moved to strengthen their defenses, beginning in 1672 construction of a permanent stone fortress. The Castillo de San Marcos was brought to completion late in the century, just in time to meet an attack by British forces from the Carolinas in 1702. Unable to take ...
This has been a fun few days, but it has come to an end and it is time to head home and back to the real world.
I had my last day of "room service" breakfast for this trip and I like having people. Check out my breakfast. Not too shabby.
We packed the car and said good-bye to Bob. We were hoping to see Bart's group this morning but they ...
... crew are under the weather but starting to feel better. We had a fun visit and then went back to the hotel. We are having dinner across the street tonight. Okay, sooooo there is an hour and a half wait at Sunset Grill so that was NOT an option. We opted for pizza at Verrazano Pizza. Well, we descended on that tiny place at 29 strong and they never batted an eye. Alice was busing tables and Missy and Dee Dee were serving up water and ...
First stop: Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum. Ripley's has nothing to do with St. Augustine, but that doesn't keep it from being a popular attraction here. It bills itself as an "odditorium," and that's just about right. Some of the exhibits are curiosities, like the two-headed lamb (stuffed). Others are downright disgusting and won't be described here.
We had lunch at Cruiser's Grill. We've eaten there before and the food is good, but Sydney's meal arrived more than ...
Today we went on a Segway Tour.
