Top notch with a touch of class A review of Hampton Inn & Suites St. Augustine Vilano Beach
My wife and I decided to take our son to historic St. Augustine for the weekend. We're from the Orlando area. We booked a room online for a one night stay on Saturday January 29th at the Hampton Inn Vilano which is only about 2 miles from the main historic area. One word of caution, if you book the Government rate, be prepared to show your official business orders as the desk clerk will ask and may not honor that rate if you cannot present your orders. This hotel is located within 100 yards of the beach. The beach in this location is unique in that you can drive on the beach and the 'sand' is comprised mostly of tiny broken sea shells with the consistency and appearance of wheat germ. There's a lot of whole sea shells there too if you like shell collecting. The hotel itself was gorgeous and new looking. I agree with a previous post about the rooms being larger that most other Hampton Inn rooms. We had a very clean room with a balcony, king size bed (with lots of pillows), TV, microwave, mini fridge, bar sink and cherry wood furnishings. In the morning, the lobby had three complimentary newspapers and an outstanding free hot breakfast that included everything you'd expect with a deluxe continental breakfast plus hot cheese omelets and sausage. This is one of the best Hampton Inns that I've had the pleasure to stay in and would gladly return again.
