You were right!
We went to this motel mainly because of the reviews here, and it was great. Fab location, walkable to everything, very scenic, very clean, very friendly. For $59 we got a room with a little table at which we could have breakfast overlooking the bay. The only drawback was that the bathroom was very small- making showering a bit awkward, but that's a very small issue, especially considering the price. Also, if you are a late riser, you might find the trolley bells, right outside, a bit annoying - I think they didn't start till about 10:00 am. The coffee was good, served till 11:00 am and the coffee shop next door was fine.
St Augustine was a neat little town and I will most certainly stay here again. I might add that we were a bit late checking out and the management was most understanding and helpful.
Right on the Bayfront in the historic district, walking distance to almost everything (you'll need to ride a tram to the lighthouse, the beach, and The Alligator Farm). My husband and I have stayed here at least a dozen times for long weekends, and we've always been satisfied.
This older motel is very clean and well-kept. There's a cute pool and a sundeck that looks out over the bay. The furnishings are older but still clean and well-kept. A great little budget motel. Don't miss the diner next door (Mary's) for a delicious and reasonably-priced breakfast.
Location, location, location. It was in a great spot, surrounded by all the neat and nifty shops and restaurants AND this hotel has parking facilities. It's a more casual place with clean and average rooms. I will definitely be visiting the Montery Inn very soon!
Taking a Break
We went there to see the sights of the oldest city in the country. We had a good time. The Monterey Inn is located in the center of everything. Easy to get everywhere and enjoy all the various sites.
Harry's Restuarant has very good shrimp. Wish it was closer to my house.
We went to St. Augustine to celebrate our 19th Wedding Anniversary. It was incredible, the comfortable atmosphere, viewing the historical landmarks and the casual shopping and dining were more than I hoped for. Although it rained everyday my husband and I had a wonderful time and we walked just about everywhere. The Monteray Inn was comfortable, clean and affordable. Thanks St. Augustine for a wonderful Anniversary, I hope to be back next year.
a clean, comfortable hotel in the heart of the historic district. walk to restaurants, shopping and attractions. right on the bay, near the visitors center and bridge of lions. parking is limited but we never had a problem getting a space. if you are playing downtown, stay at the Monterey.
Perfect for the budget traveller
The Monterey Inn is in the perfect location if you're more interested in visiting the Old City than the beach. Horse-drawn carriages, the Castillo de San Marcos, the Bayfront, ghost tours, the Old City and many other attractions are at the doorstep of this hotel. It is very simple-no frills but VERY clean and comfortable. Parking can be tight, though and I had to call several times before I was able to book the room (kept being put on hold for long periods). It would help if their website would list room rates and take reservations. I do plan on staying there on my return trips to St. Augustine.
We stay at the Monterey everytime we visit St. Augustine (every couple of months). The rooms are quiet, clean, well kept, park your car and walk or ride the trams for the rest of your visit. The rooms are inexpensive, the staff is friendly, accomodating, the am coffee is GREAT and free, and the prices are fantastic! If you only want 4 or 5 star service don't go there. Ask them for the "big" rooms, if they're available. Enjoy!
Worth looking into
I've stayed here on business at the Fort and found it simple and quaint - yet adequate for a vacation due to its prime location near the heart of the old town. It's in walking distance to everything but the beach. Friendly staff and clean accomodations. One room I got late at night was less desirable, but most are very nice. Enough privacy and convenience for a budget-conscious couple visiting the area. This is the best hotel I've found in St. Augustine under $60. Note: BYOS (bring your own shampoo).
Monterey Inn, St Augustine, FL
Very clean, not elegant, but very adequate motel accomodation directly next to the Historic District of St.Augustine. Many Rooms have a view of the harbor. "Nights of Lights" in the area (during the tourist season) make it Enchanting! Enjoy St.Augustine at its affordable best!

Very stormy day in Charleston, SC today (and for the last 3 days in a row); and forecasted to be stormy right through Wed. So making today a driving day!!!
Charleston is affectionately known as "the low country", because the streets pretty much flood and close down whenever it rains an inch or more. Brilliant.

... got changed and went straight out to dinner at Chilli’s at the Avenue in Powder Springs. We sit down in this booth, order some fajitas to share between 2 people and Mike and Ida get the same thing (because it looks pretty delicious). We all order a round of drinks and the catch ups begin! The food was delicious and we had a wonderful dinner with the both of them.

We ordered our mains and gulped them down quite quickly. After dinner, we decided to go and sit on the restaurant deck along the river where we spent another hour chatting away. It was a beautiful evening, no humidity, relaxing atmosphere and ...
We woke up a little rusty today after all the wine we had drank last night. So there was no way I could get any morning exercise done, therefore straight to the coffee machine it was. Today we decided to drive into Jacksonville and check out the housing and the area as uncle Rob had mentioned it was very different, old and colonial looking.
We head off just before lunch and take a look around, and uncle Rob is right, it is a ...

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. Piper took the loft, Darin took the bottom bunk and I took the couch. Penny is on a dinette bench. Sleep ...
