      Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Isle Oceanfront Resort Saint Augustine Beach

      Not Bad - must have gotten lucky!

      from

      Stayed here during July '04; paid ~$68/nt through HI's website and the Entertainment discount.

      Pros: Location (on nice beach; nice pool; huge room (I was in room 200); quiet; clean; nice bathrooms

      Cons: Couldn't turn down the A/C; was told they wouldn't charge for local calls and they did (but they credited me double for my trouble).

      Overall - I'd stay there again for this price.

      Will not stay at this HI ever again!!

      from

      We stayed at this hotel and it was awful!! For $100 a night, it should have been a lot cleaner than it was. I showered with my flip flops on because the bathroom was not clean and then threw away my flip flops afterwards. The rooms were run-down and I slept in long sleeping pants so as little of my skin as possible touched the sheets. It was obvious that this hotel does not clean their comforters. The room had an "old hotel" smell to it and the hallways smelled very bad. I definitely would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It seemed like it should be in the $50 range.

      Great Location - older hotel - good value for money

      from

      This hotel is older but there have been attempts to update - they just have to put more time, money and effort into it. They should as the location is great. The rooms very clean and you could view the ocean. The eleavators could use some updating or put another one in. All in all good value for your money and the desk staff was friendly and helpful

      Price is right!!

      from

      Our accomadations were right on target. We paid $86.50 a night.

      (Internet speacial) We had a huge room with a king size bed. Partial ocean view. I just can't understand what these people are complaining about. The room may go as high as $107 to $129. For this price what do you want. I didn't see frayed carpets or bugs. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. It is right on the beach and a lovely beach I might add. The bar is huge with great bartenders, lots of room and a good group of patrons of all age groups. The karoake guy I might add is very gifted at helping people participate and have fun. The breakfast buffet with not a great choice(approx.$5, not bad) If you want something more there are alot of places nearby to go eat. So people stop whining, lighten up, relax and enjoy yourselves.

      Temporarily Not that Good!

      from

      Although we stayed here 10 years ago and liked it, things have temporarily gone downhill. Major constuction was underway in December of 2003--replacing or rennovating balconies and painting. Also, the room next to ours had smokers sitting on the balcony next to ours and there is no separation of the outside balconies on the older units that are not yet rennovated. We had to go in from our balcony, the smoke was bothering us so much. When I first walked into the hallway with our luggage, a man was walking out of the building with his huge dog inside the hallway. Pets must be allowed in some rooms. This was a disappointing stay. I suggest you try The Beach Club, which was rennovated in 2003 and looks very nice.

      There When I Needed Them

      from

      I was exhausted from 8 hours of driving down I-95. I thought I could make it to Miami, but with a restless child, no way. I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on a hotel room, but by divine intervention I cruised over to the beach to see the ocean and the Holiday Inn Express was priced right for this worn-out mom.No disturbances, clean hospitable facilities, cable, and a peaceful night's sleep, was what we needed, and what we got.A nice waitress at the nearby Denny's restaurant entertained my child so that I could eat a peaceful dinner.

      I am grateful to both establishments.

      A nice, clean older motel

      from

      I transefered at 11:30PM one night as I fled the roaches from St.

      Augustine Beach Front Resort (see review of that hotel for details).

      The front desk was VERY accomodating and even found me a small fridge for my room as the room I was checking into didn't have one. The room was very clean, well decorated, and had a marvelous view of the beach.

      The hotel, while an older one, was well maintained, very celan, and one I will return to again and again. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. They are well trained to attend to the needs of their guests and always offer a smile. This hotel isn't the Ritz Carlton but is a very nice place for a get-away if you want clean grounds & rooms, a nice pool & beach, and a caring staff. Will recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.

      Shabby and outdated

      from

      The hotel was shabby with frayed carpeting, worn out mattresses, an air condition system so loud that normal conversation was impossible. The elavators were a real adventure.Many of the guests quit bothering to use them.There is a very nice beach which was easy to access so if you don't care what your room is like it could be ok. We found out later there were much nicer hotels at comparable prices near by.

      The Noisy Door, and The Bed That Wouldn't Stay Made

      from

      The staff were very nice, however, the door that opened up to the balcony, was very difficult to open and close.

      I am sure that we woke up our neighbors every time we opened and closed that door.

      They woke us up every time they opened and closed theirs.....so I am sure we did the same.

      The beds that we slept on would not stay made up. So, consequently, I had to sleep on top of a mattress cover, and "fitted" sheet every night we were there.

      Either the "fitted" sheets and mattress cover didn't fit the bed, or it was made up improperly.

      Not the best!

      from

      Our "ocean view" room that we reserved turned into a "partial ocean view" when we checked in. The "view" consists of straining your neck, standing on your tiptoes and seeing a few waves beyond the dumpster in the parking lot. They are proud that all their rooms have balconies --- it appears that these balconies used to be an outdoor entrance to the rooms, with each balcony divided by a metal railing. When you are on your balcony, you are there with several other people from other rooms. This is an old hotel where they have done "just enough" to maintain it. The restaurant was very disappointing. When we sat down and began to order from the limited menu, the waitress began to inform us of all the items that they were OUT of. We ordered a patty melt with french fries. We got a hamburger with no cheese or fries --- the waitress apologized that she did not tell us they were OUT of fries!

Since we were just stopped overnight, we decided not to extend the slide outs, which meant that we were not going to sleep in the bigger bed.
