Drove down from chattanooga to jacksonville, florida. Everything is very green down here with wetlands that look like rice fields and lots of water everywhere. Looks like there is a bit of coin down here as everything is new and the motorways smooth. Will be keeping an eye out for anyone under the age of 80 and get a photo if possible.

What an appropriate way to leave Florida, 1-95, Thunderstorms and Traffic.
Once we got to Jacksonville we made some final preparations for our trip. Our first stop at Jacksonville was at St. Johns Town Center. A week of rushing around to get EVERYTHING ready was capped off with an amazing dinner of tapas at Ovinte. Drinks, a charcuterie plate and other small bites, followed by a stop to a local brewery (of ...
This was our fist location to use the motor home. We ended up here for the most part 3 months. This will always be one of our favorite places to be camping.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Renaissance World Golf Village Resort Saint Augustine
We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Renaissance (11/26-11/28)
Great property, great service
We have stayed at numerous golf resorts - this was truly one of the best. The golf and service were first class. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, and all the beds will be upgraded we are told in January. We look forward to returning next year.
Pros: Large, attactive central atrium, ample free parking, adjacent to St. Johns County Convention Center and golf courses.
I am a travel agent and requested a King bed no smoking. We got to the hotel and were given 2 double beds. Which I know that happens, however I called down to see if there was a King available and the girl said no. I called down again to see if they had a queen bed and just magically a king bed appeared. We went to the room and while the room was nice, there were dirty blankets piled up behind the door. Mind you we were there at 9:30pm, not early afternoon. They have bottled water in the rooms for your consumption, but if you consume them they are $4.00 each. I asked about the internet cafe, they showed me to a room with 1 computer. There are wall jacks if you want to bring your laptop and work in their. They have a nice decor and the staff was nice for the most part. The grounds are beautiful an we had a beautiful view. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were just right. The shower head is wonderful. The bathroom is very large and even has a tv in the bathroom.
Smells like mold
A number of the rooms have had water damage. We requested a room change after spending one night in a room that smelled of mold. The 2nd and 3rd room shown had the same smell. We settled on the 4th room that didn't smell too bad, but did smell. Evidence of water damage could be seem by water stains on the walls, crumbling drywall near the sliding glass doors where we could see mold growing. We were told the rooms were scheduled for rehab, but in the mean time this is all they had. Since I was on a golf vacation with my buddies, we stuck it out. The golf was good, but I would find another place to stay.
We just returned from the World Golf Village where we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Renaissance Hotel. The decor in the bedroom was not light and bright, but was certainly tastefully done. We had a room with standard sized double beds, which were what we expected. King size beds are assigned on a first come, first served basis--so make your reservations & request early if that is what you want.
We arrived at this hotel on the 14th March. The reviews we read of the hotel and the hotel description made us decide to splash out a bit more money to stay there. When we got there the hotel looked impressive from the outside and the foyer area. However when we got to our room we were disappointed. In the bathroom the sink surround was hanging off, the bed spreads looked like they had come out of the 1970's and the room had a musty smell. The hotel offered foam pillows which I thought I would request and they never appeared. The lady on the front desk was helpful and allowed us to change rooms, but still the room looked very tired. In defence, the sheets, towels and the bathroom were very clean and the bed was comfortable, but small (make sure you request a king sized bed). The breakfast was also nice and the staff helpful. We enjoyed looking around the Hall of Fame and having a pleasant walk around the lake. But would not recommend the Legacy restaurant (totally separate from the hotel). Here we had the worst meal of our stay in Florida. With hinesight we wish we had stayed at the Comfort Suites (the only other hotel in the area) which looked cheaper, brand new and also overlooked a lake.
This hotel is very nice. The rooms are spotless and well decorated. The hotel can only be described as luxury class. It is the nicest Renaissance Hotel in which we have stayed. We are not golfers and used it as a base for visiting St Augustine. It is close enough to make it a good starting point if you don't want to be in the city. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that asked. From the TV in the bathroom to the terry cloth robes, they do their best to make you comfortable.
Can't say enough about it. The room was impeccable and well decorated. My wife loved the bathroom with its great lighting, TV, wide counter, and lit magnifying mirror. Her birthday was on Saturday so the room service staff brought our breakfast with a birthday candle and a nice note. VERY nice of them.
A great golf experience
The resort was great, wonderful service and the rooms were clean and decorated in a lovely golf theme. We spent three nights there, enjoyed golf on both courses and even had time for an excursion into historic St. Augustine (the concierge could not have been more helpful!) We can't wait to return next year.
