      Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Spanish Quarter Inn Saint Augustine

      Very good

      from

      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.

      Great Place!

      from

      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.

      These night tours fill up fast. We had a great group and had so much fun! The San Sebastian winery tour/wine tasting was also great! It takes about an hour but also had a great tour guide (forgot her name) I think might have been Christy? She was great! This whole city is so full of history!!! My husband and I are in our early forties and although not the youngest there we were among alot of retirees and had a great time with the variety of ages. This is a trip for all ages!! Will go back and bring our parents and our children (ages 17&20). Not sure about the nightlife we ate dinner at Scarlett O'haras at happy hour and the younger groups there were enjoying themselves and the food was great there! Our nightlife was eating ice cream after the Haunted trolley tour (again forgot the name of the ice cream/candy shop, I think it was like Fultons??)Great trip everyone should go at least once. We also ate at the Santa Maria and fed the seagulls while we had lunch,(also something to try once-food was good there also!)

      Helpful at the BW Spanish Quarter

      from

      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!

      from

      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.

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Convenient location

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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!

I could not shake the feeling that he was coming back from New York just like before. And he had this beautiful waterfront condo with a view of the sunsets over the Banana River that he would never enjoy again. Sad.

      ... A bonus was that the Castillo had free admission today because it's MLK day, a national holiday!

      We explored the town and shops a bit on foot, had lunch, and arrived at the courtyard of Flagler College at 2 pm for our tour. The present home of Flagler College was once the Hotel Ponce de Leon, the most luxurious hotel in the country when it was built by Henry Flagler, the railroad magnate, in the 1880's. It ...

In 2001 & 2008 tropical storms caused considerable flooding so in 2012 they started constructing a new reinforced wall. We are seeing new construction all down the coast as man tries to hold back nature! We listened to a program on the radio on Global warming predicting South Florida to be underwater in 200 yrs - so it's a good job we visiting ...

This place had a few films about what was going on at the time and then a huge range of artifacts from rockets and parts of space craft, moon rocks and spacesuits. There was lots to see here. After wandering around here for a bit i caught the bus back to the main visitors center. Here there was a few more ...
