St. Augustine was good. Not great, but good. There is a restaurant in St. Augustine called the "Scarlett O'Hara" with a "Rhett Butler" bar!!!! I sooo wanted to eat there, but either it was closed or the prices were too high--I can't remember which reason it was that we didn't eat there. I wish we'd just gone ahead and eaten there, though, if it was …
... It was first settled by the Spanish and the architecture of the town displays its Spanish roots. We walked down George street and took a tour of the oldest wooden schoolhouse in the United States. It had a huge chain wrapped around it with an anchor to stop a hurricane from blowing it away.
We also toured the Castillo de San Marcos which was built over several decades starting in 1672. The fort changed hands many ...

Motored up to St. Augustine to the Ford dealership to have the "rear seals" checked. Upon inspection, seals were okay disputing the report from Forest City Ford in Iowa. HMMM............... Still have some minor items to be ...
The day was warming up to be another perfect summer day. Today was different though... it was a public holiday, Greg was home, the girls still on Summer vacation and we were going to see how the Americans celebrated their 4th of July Independence Day. Dressed in some Red, White and Blue...us Aussies met up on our push bikes and peddled down to pick a nice grassy spot off the side of the road to watch the 4th of July Parade that the ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We had a lovely stay at the Wingate in St. Augustine. We'd had a long day of riding on the bus and then tours around St. Augustine. It was wonderful to get to the hotel and relax in such comfort!

It was 10PM and we pulled off of I-95 and had about 5 hotels to choose from. This one said it was "new" so we stayed there. For two queens and a pull out we ended up paying $125 (tax, tag, title, etc) (which included $10 extra for roll out). I offered my AAA card, but was told I was getting the $105 grand opening special (never mind the tax, etc. and the roll out bed).
This hotel is really nice. We booked a king-size bed room and it overlooked the outside swimming pool (which was sorta on the small side) and large whirlpool (very nice!). The hotel room was spacious, nicely decorated, and very clean. The complimentary breakfast in the morning had a wide variety of foods to choose from, although one of the waffle makers turned a waffle into a goopy mess, but the second turned out fine. The only real negative comment I have is about the staff... they aren't very polite. We had to request a few towels when we went swimming, and the guy at the desk almost acted like it was an inconvenience, so that was kinda weird. They didn't seem very warm or welcoming, but we enjoyed our stay nonetheless. I recommend this hotel!
Très bien, l'endroit était bien, la chambre était grande, petit déjeuner traditionnel, la file était longue pour le grille-pain. J'ai eu une chambre avec un jacuzzi, il était super bien. Le plus grand soucis était que le lit était à 6 mètres du mur et vu que l'écran télé était petit, c'était un peu difficile de voir.
sehr schön, gute Lage, großes Zimmer, das übliche kontinentale Frühstück, lange Schlange vor den Toastern. Ich hatte das Zimmer mit dem Whirlpool: sehr schön. Das größte Problem war, dass der ohnehin ziemlich kleine Fernseher ungefähr 6 Meter vom Bett entfernt war und man deshalb schlecht fernsehen konnte.
Idromassaggio molto bello
Molto bello, la posizione era buona, la camera grande, la colazione continentale era abbastanza canonica, con una fila abbastanza lunga per il tostapane. Mi hanno dato la camera con l'idromassaggio, molto bella. Il problema maggiore era che il televisore era a circa sei metri dal letto e, non essendo neanche molto grande, guardare la televisione era difficile.
Nice hot tub
very nice, location was good, room big, conintental breakfast was typical, line was long for the toasters. i got the room with the hot tub, it was a nice one. biggest problem was that the bed was about 20 ft from the bed and the tv wasnt that big to begin with so it was hard to watch.
Wir hatten uns die Hotels in der Gegend angesehen und zu dem Preis war das Wingate erste Klasse. Wir bekamen natürlich einen Rabatt, aber dafür mussten wir für das Babybettchen nichts extra bezahlen. Wir blieben 7 Tage und der Service war hervorragend. Morgens ein vollständiges Frühstück. Außerdem war alles sauber und wurde auch sauber gehalten. Das Hotel ist natürlich neu, deshalb ist alles super. Die Hotelleitung war sehr höflich und hilfsbereit.
We had looked over the hotels in the area, and for the money the Wingate was top. We were of course given the discount, but they through in a crib for the baby at no extra cost. We had a 7 day stay and received excellent service, a full breakfast in the morning and everything was clean and kept that way. The hotel of course is new, so everything is great. The management was very curteous and helpful.
On a étudié les hôtels dans cette région, et le Wingate était top pour le prix. On nous a bien évidemment fait un prix, mais ils nous ont ajouté un berceau pour le bébé sans frais supplémentaires. Nous avons séjourné 7 jours et le service a été parfait, un petit déjeuner complet le matin, tout était propre et restait tel quel. L'hôtel est bien entendu neuf, alors tout est super. La Direction était courtoise et efficace.
Loved the Wingate
We walked into the hotel at midnight without a reservation and got a room at a discount. At $90, it was a bit more than we were planning on spending, but it was definitely worth it. The bathrooms actually have granite in them! The manger was extremely helpful and honest--he was the one who told us that we could go to the Day's Inn if we wanted a cheaper room, but he assured us that we really didn't want to go to the Day's Inn. He let us check out a little late given our late arrival. One caveat, this hotel had only been open 8 days when we stayed there, but I am confident that they will maintain the same standard of service and cleanliness that we experienced. They also have a pretty damn decent free breakfast in the morning.
