I can't believe this is a Best Western! I had a less than glowing experience at another St. Augustine-area Best Western, so I was a little skeptical about staying here. However, we had really great wedding block rates here during my wedding weekend last month, so we took a chance. TOTALLY worth it! Best bang for the buck in the historic St. Augustine area.
The exterior is just like every other Best Western I've ever been to. Nothing super fancy. But as I entered the lobby, I could immediately tell that this stay had potential to be better than the last. The lobby was PRISTINE and modern (very recently updated). There was bottled water, fresh fruit AND spa water on tap (water infused with fruit) available in the lobby. And the front desk staff was friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. Off to a great start!
Upon entering the room, we found a very special welcome gift, congratulating us on our wedding. There was a bag filled with snacks and bottled water. There was another bag with brownie brittle. AND there was a large bottle of sparkling grape juice with two champagne flutes! Super cute... and tasty.
The room itself was recently updated and very modern. The bathroom was pristine, with a spacious shower with perfect water pressure. And the beds were clean and inviting.
I still can't believe that this is the cheapest hotel we could find near the downtown area. I've stayed at several historic-area hotels, and this was by far the most modern and welcoming. Would definitely stay here again! less
