As we meandered out of our hotel room this morning, we noticed the boys were not up and about cleaning the salty dew off our bikes. So mom knocks on their door.. She hears scrambling and bumping and a gruff, "coming". Those bums were still sleeping!!!
It was a chilly start to the day but it did not take long to shed our jackets. It was 85 …
We had a great day touring St. Augustine, the oldest European city in the United States. We took the trolley around and really enjoyed seeing this beautiful city. Yesterday it rained all day but today was clear if a little cool.
Never knew that the history of United States really started here. This colony started before Jamestown. Ponce de Leon was not looking for the Fountain of Youth, he was looking for gold for the King of Spain.
... of Charlestown, SC the Spanish felt sufficiently threatened to establish a more significant fortification. Originally conceived to be a castle, it has a two drawbridges, a portcullis and it’s foundation was built 19’ thick and surrounded by a moat. At first glance, you wonder why there is no water! Well, the moat is known as a dry moat. The intent was to prevent attackers from from burrowing underneath the walls. The fort was subsequently attacked 15 ...

A note about photo 4 "Alhambra Jr." : Franklin Smith, a wealthy Bostonian, moved his lovely socialite wife to sleepy little St. Augustine in 1883 and set about building his fantasy dream house. His amazing "Zorayda Castle" was the first building in the United States made by the new technology of poured concrete. It was modeled after the Alhambra in Grenada, albeit 1/10 the ...
... America freezes quietly. Temps here dropped into the 40s (F) about 5C, which is tollerable as long as you have socks and shoes, and are wearing three layers of man made petroleum based gear. Reservatrions were not necessary as all of Florida stayed home and shiverred. We were forced on day 2 and 3 in St. Augustine to retire from the patio of the Tini Martini and sup our pre diner bevvies indoors. Three nice meals out at the A1A, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Spanish Quarter Inn Saint Augustine
We stayed 5 nights here at the start of our Florida holiday and loved it. The hotel is close to the historic town centre, only about 5 minutes walk away.
The room was a good size with a king sized bed. The bathroom was very small, but had both bath and shower. There was a coffee maker in the room but no fridge which was a shame.Continental complimentary breakfast was very good. There were muffins, danish pastries, toasted bagels, porridge! tea, coffee, juices. The pool was good and clean and there was a hot tub too. Just what we needed afetr a day sight seeing!
All in all a very good hotel for the price. We would certainly use this hotel again.
This hotel is literally a city block away from downtown. The room was spotless! The bathroom was on the small side (If you close door when going to bathroom you have to stand in tub to do it!)but of most importance clean! The continental breakfast had enough goodies to tide you over until lunch. The staff were all super friendly and helpful when asked questions on which tours to take. We did the Old Town Trolley's Senior package which included tours of The fountain of Youth, The Old town jail tour(very entertaining!) etc...it was well worth the money. Your trolley ticket is good for 3 days! We also took the Trolley's Haunted Tour and loved it! We had a Super Tour guide named Thomas and he made it so much fun.
Helpful at the BW Spanish Quarter
The spanish quarter inn was just perfect for our visit. The rooms are small but you are only sleeping, clean neat and comfortable. The staff is excellent and informative. Sheri Jonas was extremely helpful to us and very friendly. Her recommendations were right on. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to St. Augustine, FL
Close to Ripley's - Believe it or Not!
We stayed at this BW on 1/5/06 and were pleasantly surprised that it was conveniently located just down the street from Ripley's. The hotel parking was adequate, the room reasonably clean, about what you expect from this popular hotel chain in all regards. When visiting St. Augustine, we will probably book this hotel again.
Clean and cheep.
The room was a little crampt, but I just go to the room to sleep anyway. it was verry clean. and reasonably priced. The location was great. You can easily walk anywhere, but it is also verry close to trolley, and train stop. beautifull town.
Our Car was Burglarized
When we arrived, the desk clerk told us we had no reservation even after we showed a written confirmation from Best Western. We were grudgingly given a defective room (a third of the ceiling looked as if it were going to cave in from water damage- at least the bed wasn't under that part). During the night, cars in the motel parking lot were burglarized. Fortunately for us, we'd left nothing in the car to steal, but we did get our driver's window destroyed (which was pretty expensive and inconvenient). I'm not sure we'd ever go back to St. Augustine, much less this motel.
This hotel is clean and convenient to the historical district. The cost was fair, but I felt as though we were paying more for the location than the room. When traveling to St. Augustine, steer clear of the tourist traps and walk around the real St. Augustine. Flagler College is a beautiful sight to see, as is the Casa Monica Hotel. Taking a stroll down St. George Street is a must (eat at Pizzalley-take in some ice cream from Kilwin's for dessert). All of these places are pretty close to the hotel. The tour train stations and visitor's center are close by. Convenience is the selling point for this hotel.
Walking distance to dowtown
Yes the parking was a little tight, Jennifer and Jonathen were extremely accomadating. Rooms were clean, not alot of room in the bathroom. You can walk to all the shops in downtown. Barnacle Bills seafood restaurant next door. Pool and hottub were nice and quite. A very nice experience. Thanks
Great hotel and great location
This hotel was clean, in a perfect location, and reasonably priced. It is not fancy, but the staff is fiendly and efficient. I would recommend it to others and plan to stay there again myself. Take the red trolley.
Great location!! Really close to everything. We were able to walk with our 2 young children everywhere. Great place to stop on the way to Disney World. It's about a three hour drive. We loved the hotel....it was clean and the pool is nice. There is a nice seafood restraunt next door and the little tram that takes you around is right there too. Have fun!
