Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Seaside Inn-St. Augustine Beach Saint Augustine Beach
An excellent hotel
On the advice of Susan at the tourist information centre ,we stayed at the Days inn on St augustine Beach .The reason for us visiting St Augustine was to have 4 days R n R ,after doing the Orlando parks .
The hotel was just what we were looking for ,It was clean ,the pool area was very good and had some very good restaurants close by ,i would highly recommend eating at Mango Mangoes which is just a few minutes down the road.Also pay a visit to Cafe 11 which is even closer in that its next door to the hotel .
The hotel is ideally placed for the beach ( ideal for running on later in the day )which is over the road .
Breakfast is very good too ranging from a selection of bagals ,cereals and pastries .
Margy the hotel manager is very friendly as are the other staff .
I cannot recommend this hotel any higher .
Best deal on the Beach
We were quite surprised at the Quality and service for the money we spent. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and informative, and an adequet continental breakfast topped it off. If youre looking for a quiet friendly motel at a moderate price then I would reccomend this one..... Keep up the good work.. We will be back
We spent four days there and killed 2 cockroaches, the coffeemaker in the room was corroded and dirty, we turned it into the office and it took them two days to get us another one, the carpeting was dirty and also the bathroom floor wasn't clean, there were urine stains around the toilet. They advertised that hi-speed internet was available, but we were unable to stay connected for more than 5 min at the most. Cable TV reception was bad. It was a non smoking room, but there was a cigarette burn on the edge of the bathtub.
Average but handy for the beach
We recently stayed in this hotel as part of a Road Trip round the Southern United States. The booking I'd made on Days Inn own website was lost, even thought I had a printout of our confirmation with me. The room was average, but if you want to explore the historic St Augustine this is not the hotel for you. It's miles out of town, but it is good for the beach. The comp breakfast consists of cereal bars, coffee, juice and not a lot else. Could do better Days Inn.
Could be great if...
Let me start by saying this is a nice looking hotel. We went for a week-long family vacation and when we arrived, we were impressed by what we saw. Our room was very clean and neat and a little larger than we expected. The location is absolutely perfect, a short walk to the beach. A bus picks up every hour to take you to the trolleys in downtown which is nice, too. The problems we had were mostly with the staff. Housekeeping wasn't able to get to our room on the first day, which was fine. The second day they did well. The third day, they refused to clean saying we had belongings on the beds. The "belongings" on the bed were my children's travel pillows. Still, they didn't replace any towels or make up the beds. The days following, they half-way made up the beds and put towels on the shelf in the bathroom. Also the hottub and the shower at the pool were broken most of the time we were there. When we mentioned it to the staff, we got no response. This was frustrating. We will definitely return, but hopefully by next year, these things will improve.
Days Inn just okay
I am not a big fan of Days Inn, but since the price was right and it received such good ratings from everyone else I decided to give it a chance. It really wasn't that bad. My biggest complaint was that the carpet had a really musty odor. I give it an average rating primarily because of this and the parking was pretty bad. For the price, its not that bad of a hotel, but I can't see how everyone else is giving it 5 stars. It is certainly not the best that St Augustine has to offer. Just my two cents.
Excellent place to stay!
very courteous staff. great continental breakfast. very short distance to beach, clean pool. I had no problems with this hotel. I stayed here because of the reviews I got on this website and I would recommend it to others!
I loved this Days Inn!
Wow! I can't believe this hotel is not the featured St. Augustine hotel. Not only was the room nice, the staff members were excellent. The hotel rooms are newly remodeled and beautiful. I spoke with Travis when I made the reservation. He was very helpful during conversation and at check in.
WONDERFUL FOR THE MONEY
Stayed here last spring, thought it was a wonderful buy - under $450 for easter week. Great location - just steps from the beach and walking distance to several little shops and restaurants. Rooms were very clean - housekeeping staff were terrific. Very laid-back place, seemed great for families!!!! I do remember that the pool was a little cold but it was certainly clean!!! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place and would definitely stay there again.
Nice for the money
We stayed at the Days Inn in St. Augustine Beach last spring - and it was pretty nice. It's not luxurious - but our room was pretty decent sized and the location is great as you only have to cross the street and walk down a block to be at the uncrowded beach. Also, if you like to walk a bit, it's close to a nice public pier and there are several decent restaurants you can hoof it to as well. The pool was brisk - but crystal clear. the first day we were there the hot tub was great, but then it apparently malfunctioned - but for the price per night - the location was worth it alone. Only takes 15 minutes to get into St. Augustine proper. The room was clean and the staff courteous enough. The breakfast leaves a bit to be desired (awful coffee) - but then again, who can complain - it was FREE.
During this vacation please keep in mind that we stayed at a Days Inn in Dillon, SC that was horendous! We even tried to cancel St. Augustine Beach based on our experience but couldn't due to 48 hour cancel policy - but that was fine since the one in St. Augustine Beach was pretty nice.
I would stay here again.
