The hotel is very close to the bay and is also a short walking distance to many restaurants and bars. The room was on the small side, but it was clean and had adequate accommodations. The owners were very kind and went out of their way to ensure that our needs were met. I can't say that we have any...

We just walked in and got lucky. The location is perfect. You can walk the whole town in minutes. The room was plain and clean, bathroom recently upgraded. Under new management <7 months by a lovely couple who are investing in this great little "old Florida" place. There is work going on but not intrusive. Best of all as the...

Only place in town less then 100 bucks, right on the water w/a couple chairs right out your door to enjoy the view. The room was newly remodeled, clean and the owners really nice! You can walk anywhere downtown or get the tram ticket and ride for 3 days everywhere, and get a free history lesson, really interesting. They sell...

I was pleased with my stay. Place was clean and nicely located. Everything is walking distance or a trolley hop away. Great view to the bay with a sitting area to enjoy it. Great place to put your head down and end your night.

Great location for exploring St Augustine either on foot or by trolley bus. Good value for money compared to other places in the historic town centre. Renovation still going on, so pool and several rooms not in use but this was not a problem for us and we heard no renovation noise while we were there. Staff very friendly and...

I found this to be a great place to stay. The location is convenient to walking to all local sights with the possible exception of the Fountain of Youth and of course, the Lighthouse. I hit the Fountain of Youth on my way into town then went to the motel, parked the car and walked to all the other sights....

We stayed here whilst major renovations wee going on. Staff and workers were very respectful and considerate so it was no problem. The newly renovated rooms are very nice. Location is in the Old Quarter and perfect for strolling and exploring.

We shopped around for a good location and fair price - stumbled upon the Marion. So glad we did. Location is perfect. Steps to Old St. Augustine Village and Cathedral. Inexpensive. Free parking and free wifi. Friendly staff. Our renovated room was on the second floor facing the City Marina / outdoor pool. Beautiful job with the renovations. Modern room...

This is not fancy from the outside (at all), but all the rooms either have been or are in the process of being completely remodeled. Everything was clean and new in our room. The price was more than reasonable for the accommodations we received. My guess is once the rooms are finished, they will update the exterior. The hotel is...
