    The motel is on the trolley route and made it easy to travel around St. Augustine. We had good parking also. We really enjoyed exploring St. Augustine and stayed an extra day at the hotel due to its acess to the trolley and not because we felt it was a great facility.

    The facility was built in the 50s and has lacked some investment in maintaining it. The rooms and breakfast area were not very clean.

    The hotel offered me a convenient and affordable place to stay while we attended an event just outside of St. Augustine. It was located only minutes from the old town so that we could enjoy the sites and shops during the rest of the day. The air conditioner put out some nice cold air, so we came back to the room several times during the day. The outside temp was close to 100°F. The tour trolleys had a stop in the parking lot and tickets were available in the hotel office. Very convenient.

    The room (165) was adequate; however, the ceiling over one of the beds showed water damage, cracks and paint peel, apparently from a water leak. Looked like pieces could fall at any time. This could have been a quick fix for the maintenance crew to cover up.

    Have stayed at this hotel since 1985 and always come back. The tour trains stop at the facility under the "Old Senator" Oak tree which is extremely convenient. The breakfast is satisfying , assortment of choices, (no hot food) . The staff was friendly and very helpful. One glitch , we found a bug in our room, not a big deal to us but maybe for someone else (remember it's Florida in the summer, humid & hot!) so bugs are a normal thing.

    location

    This is definately a very old hotel, sheets had lipstrick stains on them, ceiling over one bed was sagging, large cracks in the walls, Needs to be upgraded. One section looked as if it was newer from the outside.Feel the better rooms were reserved for customers booking directly with Howard Johnson. By booking through Booked.net we couldn't get any money back to go elsewhere. Bought sheets and clorox wipes to clean room.

    My 13 year old grandaughter and I enjoyed the convenience of being close to the old town area, but not so close as to have to deal with all the people. We both like to walk, so it was no problem to make the short trip on foot. The town trollies came right to the hotel, but we prefer walking.We found the staff to be very accommidating. Shortly after we arrived at our room, the desk clerk called to ask if we were satisfied with the condition of the room and if there was anything we needed. I found this very considerate, especially for a budget hotel. Also, when we ran into the hotel manager outside, he asked us how we were enjoying our stay and if there was anything that needed correcting. It was refreshing to have a manager take a personal interest in the guests' satisfaction.

    The only negative we found in the hotel was the slow-flushing toilet; possibly a water problem or a requirement that they use water-saving toilets. My personal opinion on that subject is that it doesn't save water if you have to flush it 3 times. All in all, a good experience, and I would recommend the hotel to friends and family.

    The location was convenient.

    It was run down, and dirty. By the time we left there, there were bugs in one of my bags where I kept my shampoo and other lotions.

    My husband and I took our first trip as a couple without the kids. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary. The hotel staff was very helpful and booking online (my first time!) was very easy! The location was ideal and we were able to walk to much of the sights. Also the trolley stopped there which was a nice convienence.

    The plumbing in our bathroom needed some work. (room 105) The toilet wobbled a bit and the spiggot in the bathtub was loose in the tile. We had to be careful not to pull it out of the wall!
