Very pet friendly!
Fantastic pet friendly place. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed the breakfast, the shuttle ride to the old town and other attractions close by. Loved This place. We have stayed here a number of times over the years and will definitely be back.

Good 6.0
Nice stay, but unexpected hotel service fee.
The service and the room was as advertised, comfortable, and clean. Check-in and check-out was easy and professional. My only disappointment was that I was charged an additional $15.00 hotel service fee and state and occupancy tax on that fee that I was not expecting. Usually I am charged what lists, so this extra amount was an unpleasant surprise. And since I was asked by the hotel NOT to check-out in person, I wasn't aware of this charge until after we left. I tried to call the Southern Oaks Inn to ask about the charge, but no answer.

Great stay, great price
The price was very affordable. Room was clean, comfy, and well supplied with towels, which doesn't always happen. The shuttle service was super convenient with helpful drivers. Finding parking in St.Augustine can be tough, so having the shuttle was a big bonus. The complimentary breakfast was very good. Lots of choices, and more than enough to fuel a day full of great sight-seeing and shopping. Next time we visit, Southern Oaks Inn will be my choice!!

Great stay, staff was very courteous, nice room. Beds not so comfortable.
amy, us3 night family trip
Fair 4.0
We were very disappointed in our stay here, after reading the reviews prior to booking, I thought we were going to a clean and acceptable location. We initially went to our assigned room and opened the door to find a man sleeping on the bed...he was startled, as were we. How do you give access to another guest's room? This is an unacceptable situation. Then the room really wasn't very clean and smelled like dog. I had to clean the soap dispenser myself as it was covered in a layer of grime, I wiped all surfaces down as protective measure. Had it not been a Saturday and only a one night stay, we would have left.

Good economic hotel in St. Augustine
Was a pleasant stay. Room was clean and adequate. Rick the driver of the shuttle to old town was amazing! I was great to go to a hotel that's doing real breakfast! I would recommend to anyone looking for an economic stay in St. Augustine.

Very clean and comfy
While I appreciate the scent of the cleaning products, chemically sensitive people might find it difficult. The room was comfortable and well appointed and our kitty cat was very happy in there with us.
