    I’d stay again
    Only 10 minutes from the historical district of St. Augustine. The inn is a little too close to the interstate so we could easily hear the very loud vehicles scream by. Easy to sleep through, but too difficult to talk on the phone outside your room.

    Mediocre at best
    Neighbor stood outside our door smoking all night. Cold water in shower. Nothing to write home about. Thankfully we were in and out within about 10 hours.

    Better Than Expected
    We need a basic overnight accommodation and found the Smart Stay Inn on the site. It was as described. The front desk staff, especially Jiovanni, were all helpful. They responded to every request we made (which were few) promptly. Our room faced the pool and we could hear the families who were enjoying it. We did not care about sleeping in so there was no issue. Also, it is dog friendly. Since we did not have a dog Jiovanni gave us a 2nd floor room as pet rooms are on 1st floor.
