Today we took a tour of Flagler College. It is an unbelievable building. Originally the Ponce de Leon Hotel, built by Henry Flagler (Standard Oil), in 1888. It was the first hotel to charge $100 per night. ...

... in this old city. We got to see the oldest school house. After walking around we went to eat some ice cream. We left St. Augustine and headed to Georgia. We then arrived at Savannah, Georgia. We went to the pool and everyone stared at my sister because she was so loud. Then we went to Savannah's River front where I had some good seafood chowder .Then we went back to the hotel. ...

A 4 hour drive took us further south to St Augustine in Florida. This is a chilled beach town with a large colonial history with a bit of piracy thrown in for good measure. After looking round one if the forts we headed to a classic American bar to enjoy a beer and live music. ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
The room was great and the price couldn't be beat! Traveling with a group of six can be difficult, especially if there are no suites available. This suite had two queen beds separate from a living space that included a sofa sleeper. Plenty of closet space and two televisions. It was clean and the property was well- groomed. This Holiday Inn & Suites is conveniently located in the heart of the historical district of St. Augustine and minutes from the beach. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, such as the Red Lobsters where we had a delicious dinner the previous night and a Dunkin Donuts is right down the road (where we had a quick breakfast the following day). We will remember this hotel for future vacations in St. Augustine.

Very, very nice hotel and friendly staff
My wife and I were so happy with our comfortable and clean room. It was a pleasure to be welcomed by such a friendly staff. We needed help with area information and extra towels. They went out of their way to help us with everything. We pampered ourselves with room service, too. Plan to recommend to all our friends. Bob and Nancy
This is one of the best hotels I have every stayed in, It was close enough to downtown, and very clean, the staff was well informed of the events in the historical area. The room we had was large enough to sleep 6 and had a refrig and microwave in it. The Restaurant was a buffet and had all the home cook items on it, not to mention kids eat free and the waitstaff was pleasent as well. I will be back to this hotel again on my next vacation.
... but it's not what I'd consider walking distance from the historic district. It is near the Fountain of Youth and Ripley's, but a bit of a walk to other sites. It rained while we were there so we drove around (we thought both the sightseeing trains were a waste of money) and eventually paid for parking. It was only $6 so it wasn't too bad.
I would give it one star (or zero), except the staff were so friendly and helpful! Housekeeping was another matter:
This was an excellent hotel. Not to far from downtown, so you avoided most of the traffice. New hotel, rooms were large and very clean with a soft comfortable bed.
The hotel itself was very nice, rooms good size and clean. Check in took some time, had to come back and room still was not ready but the staff was pleasant enough. The only improvement could be on their breakfast buffet, was okay but charged you for extras such as toast which was strange and other juices if you didn't like orange.
This hotel was great.. It is fairly new and very nicely decorated. It has interior corridors which I prefer. If you want to enter through any door other than the lobby you have to use your room key, which made me feel very safe. It is within walking distance to restaurants, antique shops and ice cream parlors.Ripley's Believe it or not and many other sites are practically right behind it. Staff are very helpful and nice. We had a problem with a our toilet in our room, and we were upgraded to a suite at no extra charge. We were very pleased and would highly recommend. The only problem was that is was hard to find from the road. We passed it twice and had to ask for directions before we finally found it.. Would recommend a bigger sign on the main road.
I truly didn't expect much from this hotel because I am not a Holiday Inn person but did think it would be closer to the downtown activites than it actually was. Downtown was many long blocks away, you needed to jump on the "A" trolley or drive and park. Be aware that the front desk will call for a shuttle pickup for you, but the shuttle drops you off at the "Red train" ($15./3 days/pp). The "Green" trolley is across the street ($16./3 days/pp) but has more trolleys that pick up more often.
Very nice new hotel
We stayed at the Holiday Inn in St. Augustine in Feb. 2004. Our stay was very nice. The staff was very professional and quite helpful if you had a question. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated. We had been traveling for several days before we arrived and I was in need of a laundromat, the hotel had one that was quite satisfactory. I travel with my laptop computer and it was nice to be able to plug into their high speed internet access. The weather was terrible but that's another story. Would stay at this establishment again.
We stayed here for a night on January 3, 2003 and generally were satisfied. The rooms were clean and everything was in good condition (this seems to be a fairly new hotel, at least the paint was new). The hotel was somewhat difficult to find, as it cannot be seen from the main road and is a little hidden. Downside was that you could hear what was going on in the halls (which was annoying in the morning....). All in all it was a nice hotel, but not the most impressive I have stayed in.
