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!

... Colonial Period (1565-1764) remain today in St. Augustine in the form of the town plan originally laid out by Governor Gonzalo Méndez de Canzo in the late sixteenth century and in the narrow streets and balconied houses that are identified with the architecture introduced by settlers from Spain. Throughout the modern city and within its Historic Colonial District, there remain thirty-six buildings of colonial origin and another forty that are reconstructed models of colonial ...
This has been a fun few days, but it has come to an end and it is time to head home and back to the real world.
I had my last day of "room service" breakfast for this trip and I like having people. Check out my breakfast. Not too shabby.
We packed the car and said good-bye to Bob. We were hoping to see Bart's group this morning but they ...
... first towed - I am sure. We walked a bit down St. George street then sat a while to people watch. I saw a lot of "What were they thinking when they got dressed?" Apparently, they weren't. I don't think people ever look in the mirror before they leave home. After our rest, we decided to go to Scarlett O'Hara's for lunch. If it involves Scarlett and Rhett, it can't be all bad. I actually think Charles and I have eaten here ...
... we had an "open house" at Sondra's where all the cousins and their families came for dessert. We had to return to Rachel's house to pack for our return flight.
Thrs morning we quietly loaded the car, went to Sondra's to pick up Joe's parents and headed to the airport. It's the little things: We were so thankful that this flight also had individual TV's so the kids could watch movies. This was a direct flight from Atlanta ...
... complete with Maine lobsters and embarasing singing servers. A belated Christmas turkey dinner closed out our January with Maureen, Joan, Sarah, Anne, Annette, Bernadette and me as token male. Surprising what raunchy stories women tell after a few jars of wine. It was nice to have the run of the condo next door to Maureen's and catch up on laundry, before more socks had to be purchased, and stock up on Ron Jons wear.
