    « Comfortable and conveniently located »

    Very close to local shops, the historic district and many restaurants and bars. Clean and cozy, helpful staff and decent breakfast. Only issues were the TV didn't work, but I found out it was connected wrong, (simple housekeeping mistake), carpet was ripping up and they were still working on it when I walked into the room after check in, a few hairs on the bath towels, but besides that it was a great, quick stay. I actually work as a guest experience manager at another hotel brand but this location was best for our travel plans. I always inspect rooms I stay in and the room passed my inspection! So safe to say I would stay again if I were to visit St Augustine in the future.

    « Inexpensive accommodation close to historic district in St Augustine »

    Arrived in St Augustine looking for a place to stay within walking distance of the old town. Looked at several B & Bs but they were very expensive. Went to the Best Western and were pleasantly surprised by their cheaper rates. The hotel is close to everything, pretty basic but clean with good wifi and a hot breakfast. Would recommend to anyone visiting St Augustine on a budget.

    Best Western Spanish Quarter is an outstanding value! Perfect location and extremely reasonably priced. It offers a nice breakfast, comfortable beds, and extremely friendly employees. We would suggest BW Spanish Quarter to everyone.

    « Best overall value in old town St Augustine »

    I booked this in advanced and received a good rate. It's an old place with some old finishes and a small bathroom, but it has parking, an acceptable breakfast, and most importantly, is an easy walk to the castillo and the old town. An average walker can probably be anywhere in 10 minutes. It's not a resort, but there is a pool, and it is easy to access. Staff were very pleasant and kind. I'd definitely stay again.

    Rooms average, pool/ hot tub not working. Was hoping to use hot tub. Bathroom fan not working. Super convenient location though... was a toss off. Not sure I'd stay here again, but maybe another best western

    Very close to downtown attractions (easy walking distance) and old town trolley stop. Clean, free internet and parking and a good hot breakfast. My wife and I have stayed at fancier hotels but for the price and location it was a good deal. We would recommend it to our friends and family.

    This Best Western is somewhat outdated but clean and comfortable. Location is great being at the limit of the historic district. Shops , sites and restaurants are a close walking distance. Secluded parking is great. Wifi works fine. It is a smal hotel with two floors.

    This hotel has the best location for historical St. Augustine. Close to shops, sightseeing trams, and central location to many historical sites. Not only is the location great, the hotel and staff are great. The rooms are clean and the hot tub and pool are very relaxing. Stay here and say "Hi" to Sherri.

    « Great stay at a great price »

    We wanted an inexpensive but not cheap couple of days in St. Augustine. Best Western was perfect. Everything we wanted was within walking distance. The t.v. and available channels were great and the staff was pleasant and helpful. Thanks for such a nice mini-vacay (even while hurricane preparation was going on!)

    « NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL »

    Customer service not good, noisy, rudeness from housekeeping. Never told there was construction going on, even on a Sunday, in rooms next to ours. Housekeeping just walked in the room without knocking and seemed put our that we asked her to leave. No child supervision at breakfast, couldn't get to some of the food and children running up and down hall. Every time someone closed a door on our floor the walls shook.

    « Good Location »

    Hotel is located in a very nice area. Visitors center across the street. Room was a little small and tight to walk around in. No elevator, so had to walk upstairs to get to carry luggage up and down iike that since it was raining. Breakfast was okay.

    « Closest to The Fun »

    This is a great place to stay for St. Augustine fun. Walking to St. George St. takes only a few minutes. The staff are very helpful and aim to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The breakfast is quick and easy to grab.

    « Great staff, hotel not so much »

    Very nice staff, who went out of their way to accomodate us. Very friendly every time we ran onto an employee. But the room was small for the price, regardless of the location. The table was squeezed into a corner, and covered the a/c vent. The carpet wa worn, and the whole room needed updating. The mattresses were terrible. Very uncomfortable, really need to be replaced. These days, most updated hotels have comfortable beds and bedding, not so much here. The breakfast room is an unvented, claustrophobic little room with 4 tables crammed in. The breakfast food was good but it was so cramped and stuffy in the room, it was unpleasant. And finally, the staff themselves constantly stiod o the balcony above the laundry/employee area and smoked. Every time we had to go down the stairs, we had to make our way through smoke.

    « Friendly staff, but rooms are unclean »

    The gentleman that checked me in for my four day staff was less than excited to be there. The first room I had I had to chase a roach around and when I called the gentleman at the desk he said he did not have any spray and could not leave the desk. I finally got it at 12:30a.m. The next morning I chased a lizard around. The tub had hair in it and there was garbage behind the dresser ( I only got to see that because of the roach) The next room I moved to had hair in the tub,remnants in toilet, the toilet barely flushed, and the tub did not drain. The staff (except for the gentleman) was very friendly and helpful. I was compt. one night, but I would never stay here again.

    « Awesome location and front desk staff »

    My wife and I stayed at the best western for the labor day weekend. We were already in our vacation mode and it sky rocketed when we met Terry at the front desk. She handled our reservation with the biggest smile in the world...i mean it felt like she loves helping their guests. we were inquiring about buying trolley tickets, she took care of that for us, she gave us a coupon book of all the restaurants and sigh seeing places in the historic area of St. Augustine. She even far enough to order us a trolley service to pick us up in front of the hotel instead of us walking across the street to wait for it. If you want something good and you're on a budget...look no further and see terry!!

    « Great Value in Historic District »

    Great Bang for your buck. The location is fabulous. Walking distance to everything in the historic district. If you don't want to walk the trolley pickup's across the street. The staff was friendly, efficient & put in the extra effort in all they did. Hotel was very clean & well maintained. Nice amenities in the room including a microwave & refrigerator. Extremely comfortable bed with lots of pillows. Hot breakfast. The pastries & fruit were individually wrapped. For the money I don't think it can be beat.

    « Great location »

    The room was ok sized, but the bathroom was tiny. The toilet clogged, and was sluggish the rest of the time. The air conditioner was not working- the room was muggy the entire stay (2 nights). Breakfast was great- there were a variety of options. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

    « Best Location in St. Augustine »

    Loved our stay in St. Augustine. This hotel is in a great location; close enough to walk to some of the best attractions and the Old Town Trolley tour, which is the best way to get around the city with stops at all attractions, stops right across the street! Nice free breakfast included! which saves time and money and gets you out enjoying the city earlier! Parking is a little tight, very close together with a concrete wall enclosing the lot making it very hard to park, even with a small car, but that's the only thing I could find to complain about. Room was very clean and modern, front desk very friendly and willing to help find your way around.

    « My stay at the Best Western Spanish Quarters Inn »

    My stay at the Spanish Quarters Inn in St Augustine Florida was a very nice stay the location was perfect, the location was near every thing and with in walking distance. It is near the fort, Ripples Believe it or not, a lot of places to eat at, Also quite a few shops to wander through. It is a fun place to go to.

    « Perfect location in Old Towne »

    We have stayed at this property a number of times and will again. The rooms are small but remarkably quiet given the location, and the trolley stop near by. Rooms and linens are clean. Parking could be a challenge but the lot attended guides you into your space...no door dings so fare. Park it and leave it, (parking extra). No need to drive, you can walk to whatever restaurant or shop you wish. Also very convenient to the old fort. We do not use the pool or take the continental breakfast so I can not comment on these. We want a clean comfortable room, in a good location and this hotel does the job for us. We enjoy At. Augustine each February and meeting up with our friends from Fernandina Beach. It's a nice ritual and this hotel suits us all well.

    « St Augustine Fl Best western »

    I have been going to this hotel for 30 years. Its a nice little hotel in the oldest town in the nation. Girls know us real well and treat us right. Clean, neat and pleasant. We keep going back to this hotel every year because we don't have to worry about any problems. They go above and beyond when ever possible. Don't hesitate to plan a trip here as it is in the heart of this old town. Just within walking distance of nearly everything.

    « Great location. »

    The hotel itself is a little dated. Rooms on the small side, and bathroom fixtures could use an update. While the bed itself was comfortable, the sheets were pilled and somewhat rough. Other than that -- the room was clean and had microwave and refrigerator and wireless access. Staff very friendly and efficient. The continental breakfast was very good; the small breakfast area provided trays for taking items back to room. The location was perfect within walking distance of many sites and attractions. Visitors bureau next door; trolley across the street.

    « Actually not so bad »

    We came down to St Augustine and wanted to be close to the historic area, but at a reasonable cost. We decided on the Best Western Spanish Quarter. We were able yo park our car and visit the downtown area with no problem. Our room on the second deck was nice. Beds were comfortable and AC worked good. The bathroom and sink were updated, but as others have pointed out, the tub and toilet in a separate room and was very difficult to stand in the small area in front of the toilet to open and close the door. Staff was friendly and almost everyone said good morning to us. They provide bottled water each day which was a nice touch. The breakfast was ok but only 4 tables in small breakfast room. They provide trays to take food to the room. They charge $5 to park daily. Why they need to do that seems unnecessary. Similar to charging $5 daily to use the pool Anyway not bad and we would stay here again.

    « Great location for downtown but »

    I felt like I was in a Motel 6 in the 1960's. The place was very worn down. The breakfast was terrible- packaged muffins etc. & no room to sit. The ONLY thing going for this is its location- but I'd choose to stay elsewhere if I go back. Unfortunately, it seems to me that this town is pretty honky-tonk. Many of the accommodations in downtown were old & worn.

    « Awesome Location - Updated Hotel - Great Service »

    You can park your car and never touch it again. You can walk to everywhere in St. Augustine. The room is updated and the beds comfy. The breakfast had a good variety with eggs and bacon for choices and the water and coffee served all day was a nice touch. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

    « Great location BUT>>>>> »

    This was a great location for downtown St. Augustine activities. The trolley stops across the street & is convenient- but I felt like I went to a Motel 6- & I haven't been to one of them in 30 yrs. Loud A/C, smelly mold smell, & outside noise.

    3
    « Convenience »

    Clearly this is an old hotel, but I have to say it is in pretty good condition. Did not have the "old room" odors or even the moldy corners in the bath and shower. Stayed two nights because it is so very convenient to downtown shops, restaurants and attractions, all in walking distance. Only annoyance was traffic noise, probably a 5 on a ten scale. Get a room to the back of the building would be better, though that's where the pool is. Staff is reasonably friendly, courteous and helpful with discount coupons to restaurants. Would stay here again.

    « Excellent location! »

    It was an older hotel, but it was clean. It was a bit crowded in the rooms, but the kindness of the staff, along with a pretty good breakfast and complimentary water made up for it. The location was PERFECT! We did not pay for the train or trolley because everything was walkable from this hotel.

    « Close to Historic District »

    We felt that the rate was fair, the proximity to the historic district was excellent, the room were clean and comfortable, the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Beds were very comfortable. It was quiet at night. The rooms are a little small but we were only there to sleep and shower so it wasn't a problem at all.

    « Great staff & location »

    Hotel was within walking distance to restaurants, shops, etc. but so close that it was a noisy area. Felt very safe. Front desk people were all nice & helpful. Went with daughters for a "girls" long weekend and had a wonderful time.

    « Great shower and rest »

    The shower pressure and temp. was great. The bed was what you should come to expect from a Best Western. When I called on my way to the hotel to inquire about my reservations, the young male was rude; however, the female night clerk was pleasant upon my arrival.

    « Pleasure Visit »

    Although close to where you want to be and within walking distance of historical area and waterfront, this hotel has not been upgraded. Rooms are small and cramped. Guests are also charged for parking, something I didn't understand. That said, it was clean, quiet and offered both a comfortable bed and continental breakfast.

    « Nice stay »

    We stayed for 4 days and really enjoyed our stay only problem was the bathroom was a little to small for my liking.. The pool and jacuzzi were lovely after walking and touring around all day.. Loved that it was in walking distance to st. George street and the Castillo de San Marcos and the trolley..

    « Yes a little small, but clean with friendly staff »

    The rooms are a little small but comparable in size to most motels I've stayed in. We didn't spend much time in the room anyways since we were so busy exploring the town! The staff was pretty darn friendly. The pool was great on a hot day. The breakfast is ok. The motel is very close to old town and within walking distance. I would say the only drawback is the parking lot is a little cramped, but not enough to keep me from coming back.

    « Good location/wonderful staff »

    We went for the fourth of July weekend. Very busy weekend to be in St Augustine. The hotel is in a very good spot. There are trolley stops adjacent to the hotel which is ideal. The hotel rooms are small but how much time are you spending in your rooms. The beds were comfortable. The room clean. Replacing the carpets would be a help. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. I would stay again.

    « Excellent experience super friendly staff »

    Manager Sheri was able to book us a room at a great rate last minute. Hotel staff was super friendly and went out of the way to accommodate us. Safe location and in walking distance to old town. Rooms clean and comfortable beds. Breakfast in a.m. with a ton of choices.

    « Small Quarters »

    I went with my parents and we had a great time staying so close to the city attractions. The downside was the room. It was very small so we would have to squeeze around each other. Also, the pool and 'not so hot tub' were small as well.

    « Lacks charm but convenient value »

    Just stayed here for 2 nights attending concert at the amphitheatre. Wanted a place walking distance to bars and restaurants and did not want a B&B. This hotel was just that and also had a somewhat decent breakfast each morning in the lobby. The good is the room cleanliness and great water pressure. The bad would be the cramped pool area. Paid $170 per night and felt value when you throw in the morning food and location. Found another Best Western about 1/2 mile south of this one that is opposite the harbor and closer to all the action so I would likely choose that one over this one in the future if the money was the same.

    2
    « Bad for the Money. »

    Very cramped, Not much of a pool. I felt as if everything was squeezed into a very small space. Rooms were noisy and you could hear people talking in the room next to you. I felt like you couldn't really relax.

    « Great Location »

    PROS: GREAT LOCATION across from trolley stop and just a short walk to several attractions and shops and restaurants. You could actually park your car here and not need to use it until you were leaving. The staff was personable and helpful The room was clean and had the amenities that you would need (flat screen tv with direct tv, Wi-Fi ,refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, iron and board, coffee maker. CONS: I've had much better continental breakfasts at other hotel/motels including Best Western. Most items are prepackaged which is fine but the "cooked food" was edible but not great. The breakfast area is very small with only 4 tables. This can be a problem if a few families arrive for breakfast at the same time. If you plan on using the table in your 2 queen sized bed room - you need to be aware that the table really can only be sat at by one person. There isn't enough room to get to the second chair.

    « Disappointed »

    Booked room through Priceline for $226 per night for 2 nights. First the room smelled terrible like mold- there was water spots in the ceiling, there was water spots on the drapery by the door- it was HOT, like 92 out so with the air on full blast it just spread the mold spores everywhere. Within 10 minutes my son started complaining about his throat hurting. We ended up leaving the room and eating over $500 to find a cleaner and healthier room.

    « if you are a family do not pick this hotel »

    when I called to make the reservation I told the lady I had 3 kids and needed a roll a way bed which she told me she would make sure I had one for my room. when we arrived we where told that none of the rooms where big enough for a roll away bed so my 3 kids had to sleep in 1 queen size bed which they where not comfortable in. our room was so hot is made our nights miserable even though the ac was running. when I checked in I told the front desk that I would like to pay cash the guy told me that we pay when we check out but my room was charged to my credit card 2 days before check out. we checked out a day early because it was so miserable in our room. when I asked the guy at the front desk about my card being charged the guy told me he checked me in and never told me that. when he was not the one that checked me in and I was told that. I assumed that when I paid for parking that it there was security for our cars or something but nope no security. I'm not really sure why we had to pay for parking. free breakfast was offered but there was no where to sit and eat. there are 4 tables in the dining area which the dining area is smaller that our room. 2 tables that seat 4 and 2 tables that seat 2 and we are a family of 5 plus the area to get to breakfast was so cramped that there was absolutely no way to enjoy breakfast. I did like the oatmeal bar. and that you offered Yoplait yogurt, little boxes of cereal and the little store bought muffins because the cooked food was not very good at all. the pancakes where tough i had to cut them with a knife, the eggs tasted like rubber with sandwich cheese in the middle. the bacon was not cooked and I'm not sure what kind of sausage that was but it was not good. the only thing i really liked was that the refund to my card was same day and the house keeping was really good. the house keeping took great care with our stuff if we left something on the bed before we left it was folded and on a clean fresh made bed when we got back the kids stuffed animals where always placed nicly on the bed with little choclets that my kids loved. yep house keeping is the only reason i didnt absolutely hate this place.

    « Perfect location »

    I really don't think Anthony Melcchiori will be visiting this place anytime soon. We were greeted by the front desk person and he gave us an overview of the area, including when and where breakfast was served.The biggest draw is the LOCATION. It is walking distance to the historic St. Augustine area. They offer an adequate continental breakfast, coffee was good, choice of creamers, etc, bagels, omelettes, etc. While I still would prefer to have a sink IN the area of the shower instead of separate and inthe room, I still can't complain. Plenty of channels on the cable TV when you got back to the room to relax. Ok, so the only problem we did have was, while the front desk guy was very courteous and nice, he informed us that we would get "turn down service with a chocolate on the pillow" if we did not put the Do Not Disturb sign on the door. So we didn't put it on. When we got back to the room later that night, there was no turn down service. Needless to say, we DID put the Do Not Disturb sign in the door thenext night... The other thing was we had a family in the next room with apparently small chldren that liked to scream at 11 p.m. And 7 a.m. Of course. this isn't the fault of the hotel. It's the stupid parents. I just banged on the wall to let them know they were pushing my buttons. Parking was tight (i mean TIGHT to get in and out of the parking space) but once we checked in, we didn't even have to use the car because we were so close to the historic district.

    « Good Option for Price and Location »

    I live in Tampa and have been to St. Augustine many times. The weekend prices are always high and the closer you get to old city the prices go up. This hotel is a little further so the prices are usually lower. It is right across the street from the trolley depot, so we usually start out walking to our destination and have the option of hopping the trolley back if we get too tired or if the weather turns bad. The motel is nothing fancy -- your typical older chain-type accommodations but it was clean and the people were very friendly and helpful.

    « Great Hotel for St. Augustine visit »

    Within walking distance to the Fort, St. George St., a trolley stop and many attractions. Rates were reasonable and staff friendly. The rooms were a bit small as well as the dining area. However, for the price, I thinks it's an excellent deal.

    « Great Location For the Price »

    Super friendly staff, rooms were clean, location was great, and we could walk to everything. The parking lot was tight, but other than that we would definitely stay there again. Our friends were also happy with the choice to stay at this hotel, as the price was good. Everyone liked the breakfast and all of us had a pleasant stay.

    « Good Location, Bad Mattress, and Road Noise. »

    For a motor lodge Best Western not bad. We need stay in motor lodges, that is just me. I did not pay attention to this fact when I, last minute, booked this location. The staff was professional and courteous. I was disappointed that they did not offer more dry goods as most hotels have small 24 hour "nooks" for snacks, toiletries, and head ache pills. I had to run down the street to get Advil. That did not make me happy. The room was recently renovated but the bed might as well have been a stack of plywood. Our luck seemed to not be with us for that issue on this trip. Note for next time: find out comfort level of mattresses in rooms. The location was really close to the historic downtown but too close to the main road since we got to listen to that all night. Ask for the west side of the hotel that might be better.

    « Great choice »

    We decided to get this motel right in the tourist area. It is directly across from the Fort and great for walking in the historic district.The room was compact but well appointed. We stayed in room 104 which was close to the office and had great wifi reception, but I'm not sure about how it would be further from the office. The clerk was very helpful and friendly. The pool was refreshing, a nice treat after the heat of the day. I should remark that we got a good deal on this hotel so we considered it a value.

    Good breakfast, lots of cable channels, free Wi-Fi that connects easily and the best is its vicinity to historic downtown, a three-minute walk to St. George St. The only gripe I personally had was the fact that our "neighbors" had young children in their room and we could hear them screaming and playing very loud at 11 pm and 7 a.m. Parents should learn how to be more considerate of others and reprimand their kids.

    « Great location! »

    Great location! Near trolley stops, within walking distance to Castillo Des San Marco and the city gates. The rooms were clean. Front desk staff was very helpful. They gave directions, suggested some great restaurants and even gave us coupons. Parking was tight, but manageable. Price was pretty reasonable. Breakfast was pretty typical, but definitely nice to have.

    « Unbeatable Location and Price »

    For the money, this is the best location to walk around Saint Augustine. It is located just across the street from the Visitors Information Center. We were able to walk to all the main historic district sites from here. It also meant we could easily run back to the hotel to grab something, change clothes or have a quick rest. The rooms are dated, but clean. The staff were super friendly and helpful. There was a fridge and mini coffee maker In our room. We were able to keep some cold beverages on hand and our cold packs in the freezer for our cooler. The parking is an additional $5 a day, but well worth it since you can come and go as you please. Otherwise, parking is expensive in the historic district of Saint Augustine. Breakfast was adequate and kept us going until lunch.

    This was within walking distance of most of the main parts of St. Augustine, particularly St. George Street and also the restaurants in that area. Since available parking is limited in this area that was extremely important.

    This hotel is a very solid option. A short walk to sites and to downtown restaurants. Our room was clean and neat. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was not anything special, but did offer a variety of options and served the purpose. Parking is a $5 fee but is well worth it.

    I arrived in St Augustine by greyhound and the location of the hotel couldn't have been better! It is also on the trolley stop too which is helpful at the end of the day when your feet are tired from all the sightseeing! The staff were very helpful and the rooms are comfortable.

    « Ideal location and worth every penny »

    My husband and I recently came to St. Augustine for an anniversary trip. Both of us had been to the city as children, but this was the first time planning a trip there ourselves. After reading a lot of reviews on tripadvisor, we decided on the Best Western Spanish Quarter Inn and I am very happy we did! The hotel appears to be a little older but was very clean. The staff were all friendly and helpful. They offer a hot breakfast but my husband and I decided to take advantage of all the wonderful restaurants in walking distance so never ate at the hotel. It is literally walking distance to almost everything we wanted to do in the city. We decided not to spend money on the trolley tour bc of this. However, we did take an uber twice and it was about $5 each time. Overall, this hotel helped make our trip a memorable one and we will be staying here again next time we visit St. Augustine!

    « Best Location for colonial St Augustine »

    I rated this 2 story motel very good because of its location within a couple of blocks of colonial Saint Augustine. Parking is only $5 a day versus paying up to $20 per day at some parking lots near historic sights. Also it is directly across the road from Ripley's Believe or Not one of the trolley stops, which allows you to hop on a trolley with a prepaid ticket (available the day before at several kiosks selling discounted next day tickets). Check in was quick by pleasant staff. Thought the room was okay - updated with comfy bed, new carpet and drapes, painted walls, newer furnishings, refrigerator, microwave and somewhat updated but tiny bathroom. Had a corner unit on second floor near Castillo Drive so heard some street noise, but wasn't obnoxious. Breakfast was pretty good but served in tiny crowded room so we took tray of food to our room to eat. Since we were rarely in our room we thought it was fine. Also there is a small pool and hot tub on the premises surrounded by a block wall (no landscaping or resort feel but nice after a long day walking in the heat). Parking is crowded in front of the lobby area but there are secondary parking lots which had more room. With an advance purchase nightly rate combined with parking savings I think you should consider staying here. If you prefer 3 and 4 star hotels this is not your place.

They do offer free WiFi Request a room towards the back. Mine was in the front, near the street. Trucks woke me up at 06:00am. I was going to get up anyway so no problem. The breakfast was very satisfactory. Desk staff was helpful & provided a good map of the historic district.

    « Good location, not terrible for the price. »

    My sisters and I stayed at this best western one night on a quick trip to St. Augustine. You can't beat the location. It's walking distance to everything in the historic downtown area so it made for a convenient stay. The room was okay. The beds were really comfortable, but the carpet seemed a little questionable. The bathroom was fine, but there was no fan in the shower area so it got too hot while anyone was in there with the shower running. Also, parking is ridiculously tight at the hotel. They have lots on either side but both of them were so tight it literally took me a good five minutes to maneuver our mall SUV in and out of a tiny space without hitting the car beside me or the wall directly behind. So if you have a decent sized truck or SUV, you might be best off parking somewhere else. Overall, we enjoyed our quick stay and for the price it was a decent deal.

    My husband and I stayed for 3 nights. The staff upon arriving was very nice and offered some great tips for things to do while in town. The room was small but adequate with a fridge and microwave, king bed, small table and bathroom area. The free breakfast was good with some hot items and the usual cereal, pastries, yogurt and fruit. The parking was tight and small lot so you may have to park next door. The location was perfect though a block away from Ripleys and the fort. St George street was across the parking lot with the visitor center. Easy walking to all of downtown and most of the attractions. The hot tub was not working while we were there but overall it was a great stay!

    « Friendly Staff, Great Location, Small but Clean Rooms »

    The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean but small. They are also a bit dated (bathroom fan rattled a bit). The location is excellent for anyone who wants to walk anywhere in Historic Downtown Saint Augustine. Daily parking fee was cheap compared to some other hotels and especially when compared to trying to park in and around Saint Augustine yourself. Cost and overall value would depend on the rate and time of year. I think I got my money's worth. Bottom line...it's a Best Western not the Ritz Carlton, but the gracious staff, great location, clean rooms, and budget friendly costs, make this a nice place to stay. I will come back to this hotel again.

    Clean and friendly hotel. Breakfast was good. The room is too tight with 2 queen size beds otherwise good. The price of the room on Thurs. was great but it jumped $100 for a Fri. night. It was centrally located and the receptionist called a bus to pick us up to go get our tickets for the hop on and off Old Trolley Train. It was well worth the price because you can use your ticket for 3 days. We only stayed one day and it was still worth it. I would stay again, the staff was excellent.

    I booked this hotel because I've stayed at this chain in the past and was surprised with disappointment. Dirty floors, hair in the bathroom, moldy smelly A/C, seemed like bedbugs the next morning woke up with bites on my legs and arms. For the price trust me you're only paying for the location definitely not the cleanliness or staff assistance. I would recommend a different hotel as this wasn't a good experience. Location was great but for $170 a night could have at least fully cleaned the bathroom. Don't book it, try another hotel.

    « Yearly trip to music festival »

    Today we checked into our usual hotel for the yearly music festival. Mind you we booked it a year in advance. When we arrived the main entrance was blocked off. Workers are painting the outside. We were forced to park on the opposite side of the building from our room. We were given reason to expect it to be open shortly as this was Friday evening. After a few hours we needed our bags so once again we were forced to carry them around the building. When I asked the night guy when it was to open he indicated " sometime" but unsure.. I wanted assurance it would be tonight. None received. We proceeded out the door from the breakfast area that we were invited through earlier to retrieve our bags and he locked it behind us. Forcing us to walk further around the building. Now the workman have left. The lot still is not open. At this point If anything happens to the 2 motorcycles costing 100,000 on the opposite side of the building I will hold Best Western responsible. Not to mention the rudeness and inconvenience this work is causing. Especially since on line rates are showing at 300.00 night.. This is not acceptable treatment for yearly returning guest!!

    « Good location! »

    We stayed at this hotel for 4 weeknights in February. We were happy with the location; being within walking distance to the historic area and across the street from the trolley stop. Our room was small, but was clean and the king bed was comfortable. We had a refrigerator and microwave, which made it nice since we were staying multiple nights. It was the closest room to the road and we were worried about the road noise, but that wasn't a problem since we were gone most of the day and the road traffic does die down in the evening; however, we did run the A/C fan continuously all night to drown that out. The parking was $5.33 a night, including tax. It was definitely a tight squeeze; some spots are wider than others, so if you have a large vehicle, try to pick one of the larger spots. We had to back our truck in and work it back and forth, but it is doable. We bought tickets on the trolley and left the truck parked in the lot. That way we didn't have to worry about driving and parking! Breakfast was a step up from what one might expect. Each morning, they had three warm items, which we found tasty, and they also had brand name cereal, muffins and pastries. We found the staff courteous and helpful. We got very good rates for this hotel and overall were very pleased. We would definitely stay here again!

    Chose this hotel because of the moderate cost and area. Booked on Bookings.com and saved $60 a night off of room rates. The trolley stops right across the street from the hotel. The staff at the hotel are phenomenal. They have maid service during the a.m. and in the late afternoon they come around again to see if there is anything you need. If you get a room with two queens, the walking room is tight. Carpet was wearing near the bathroom and parking is tight but if you use the trolley, you never have to move your car. You are within walking distance of old town. I would stay here again if visiting St Augustine Old Town. Thanks again, Jerry!

    The only "complaint" if you will, the furniture in the rooms, specifically the piece the televisions sit on. The chest is too deep for those rooms, makes it a wee bit "tight" when moving to and from the restroom.... or in general. Mind you the objective of a stay in St Augustine is not to be situated in the room the entire time, but it was noticed when we were in the room.

    « Lots of thought has gone into the amenities to make up for the narrower rooms and parking situation »

    First and foremost: This hotel is fortunate to have Jerry and Sherry on its staff. Upon check-in, Jerry informed us that if we could not get down to breakfast, they would be able to bring us certain things (but not omelets or hot stuff like that). I don't know if this is because I use a wheelchair or if this is something they do for everyone. But the fact that this is even an option is cool. We didn't use it, but it's nice to know we could have. A note about the handicap accessible rooms: those are king-sized beds and those are on the side of the building where the handicap spots are. We needed two beds, so I can't comment on the handicap rooms. I *can* tell you that the rooms are a bit narrow. I can walk short distances, so walking around the room was not an issue, but if you need a wheelchair to walk, you are going to want to ask about the true accessibility of the handicap room. Two people cannot pass each other between the ends of the beds and the front of the dresser to get to and from the bathroom, so yea, it is a little narrow, but it makes up that by being so close to everything. Second tip: Back your car in, get your stuff out, and never get in your car again unless you're going out toward Anastasia for the alligator farm, the sanctuary, or lighthouse. Even though I'm in a manual wheelchair, we walked/rolled to the distillery/ice plant. It's not hard. The vanity is at the end of the room, and the part of the bathroom with door is what houses the tub/shower and toilet. Old school motor lodge style. I usually like staying in places with interior hallways, but because of ,my current mobility situation, this was what I "settled" for in my mind when I booked. Now that I've stayed there for five days, I would not say I settled at all. The beds were a little harder than what I'm accustomed to, but my son was able to fall asleep no problem. I'm sure that coming back to the room well past his normal bedtime and being exhausted helped him be able to crash as hard as he did. My husband and I both had trouble with the mattress. However, everyone found the pillows to be really comfortable. You'll come back to your room and find bottles of water on the bathroom vanity each day. You'll also find that housekeeping leaves kisses on your bed when they come in and turn down the bed. Yea, that's right - they turn down the bed. We discovered that housekeeping also took all the used towels, even the ones that were not on the floor, each day. You know how they tell you to leave the towels you want swapped out on the floor, but hang towels up if you're okay with re-using? We did hang up things like hand towels, but they even exchanged those for new ones. Housekeeping noted that we had removed the coverings from one bed and added a blanket to the second and figured out that this was how we wanted things. That's how they made up the beds daily. We never touched the television because we listened to music when we were in the room getting ready to leave or winding down. But the remote was in a bag that said it had been sanitized. The bathroom was probably one of the cleanest I've seen in a motel in a long time. No gunk built up in the corners behind the doors or near the tub like I usually find. No rusted ring around the tub drain like you'll often see. They offer a Pantene Clean 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner, which they restock as you use it. The fridge is not a mini one. It's one of those taller dorm fridges. Not a little block fridge. We had about a dozen bottles of water with us and eight of the mini cokes and had no trouble fitting all of that. There would have been room for leftovers if we wanted to bring anything back to the room. There's a table and two chairs in front of the A/C unit that takes up a lot of space. One person will have to climb onto the bed on that side from the foot of the bed. The chair that's on the wall side is virtually useless. If you have a lot of devices with you, you are going to LOVE that the outlets have been placed above the nightstand AND that there are USB ports built into the outlets. Free wifi. Lots of thought has gone into the amenities to make up for the narrower rooms and parking situation. If Casa Monica is out of your price point and a B&B isn't what you're looking for, then this is where you'll want to stay for the location. You are literally right across the street from the parking garage. Very good stay.

    « Night of Lights »

    Stayed at the Best Western Spanish Quarter Inn for a night to experience St. Augustine's Night of Lights. This inn is located about a block away from the north entrance to St. George St, and across the street from Ripley's & their Holiday train tours. Great location, didn't have to use the car at all. Everything's within walking distance. Rooms were OK, staff and breakfast were fine. Would stay there again next time.

    « Nice Place to Stay Short Term »

    Small rooms and especially small bathroom, Everything clean and beds were comfortable.It is an older BW so no elevator. Railings were a bit wobbley. No elevator if you book second floor.If you enjoy pleasant staff and a nicer breakfast with comfortable beds and LCD DIRECT TV television. Stay here. And the price is fair for a touristy area. I would stay again.

    « You can not do better then this hotel »

    We stayed here 2 years ago and enjoyed it. When I made our reservations for 4 nights I I inadvertently made them for the Historic Inn. When we showed up there at 9 pm on a Friday night during Festival of Lights, I saw my mistake. With some help from both hotels we were able to stay for 2 nights at the Spanish Quarter Inn. They were booked for the next 2 nights but did their best at getting us a room but did find another hotel but t was certainly not up to the Spanish Quarter Inn. They are so centrally located right across the street from the trolleys. My husband has a scooter and everything is close by. My only complaint is the parking lot and the small pillows.

    « BESTEST Weekend ever »

    The Best Western is ideally located, away from the crowd and noise but convenient to all of the attractions. We are already planning our next stay. Was great to be able to buy local attraction tickets at the front desk.

    « Good hotel, but.... »

    Best Western Spanish Quarter Inn is a cute small hotel. The location is perfect, it's next to almost everything. The rooms were clean, the hotel staff is friendly, and the free breakfast is yummy. The only problem that I ran into, is the parking is a pain. You have two very small parking lots. If you have a huge car or truck good luck on backing out, since there is no room. They have extra parking next to them in another location. It's off the hotel premises, you will not be able to keep a look out on you're car.

    Staff is friendly, helpful and do their best to accommodate. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Excellent location yet reasonably priced. Assistant General Manager, Sheri Jonas is an asset to the organization.

    My friends and I go to Saint Augustine a couple of times a year, we have stayed twice at the best-western Spanish Inn. We returned there because of the friendliness of the staff....clean rooms and easy access to all the attractions.

    « Decent but not great »

    The location is a great one - right next to a visitor center and cemetery, if you're wanting to walk to Georgetown St for shopping, it's not bad from this hotel. The issue is the room size is pretty tiny, two people can't walk by the beds to the other end of the room. That's not a major issue since the price is relatively good, although I have to say their are other hotels as nice and in as good locations where the price is the same or even cheaper. The major issue is the parking - it's so awful. They have a small overflow section but the two trips we went here, the parking was so nerve-wracking and anxiety filled. The parking lot if so small that it is very difficult to park or back out of a space because of the distance between the cars. It gets so irritating if it's busy that most people won't move their cars until check out. The pool is refreshing but of course very small. The breakfast is excellent, I will say - good food and variety.

    « Well worth the price and the location was excellent »

    Older hotel but upkeep was good and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were outstanding in their customer service. If your lucky enough to check in when Sheri Jonas the Assistant General Manager is their you will get all the information you could want on the surrounding area and where to go for meals. The hotel also has some coupons for certain activities. The breakfast was filling with some hot items to start the day. This is my second time their and I would recommend it. The location is really a great spot to be in except for the building directly in front. This claims to be just and information center but really its a hard sell travel club so don't get roped into going their unless you really wish to join.

    « Good hotel in a great location »

    I won't rehash everyone's comments on the location but it is the reason we chose the property. However, we were also happy with the hotel itself. It is an older property but it is reasonably maintained. Room was clean and quiet. The big surprise was that they offered an evening turn down service. Haven't seen that in any hotel for many years. No question, I'd stay here again on a return trip to St Augustine.

    « Disappointed »

    While the staff were truly exceptional they could not make up for the overall upkeep of this property. So happy that I did not see any "living" bugs but we did find a dead one. Bathroom curtain rod busted from wall so water was all over the floor. Curtain could not contain water due to the rod damage. Toiled was not cleaned in a long time (front had not been wiped down). Carpet was dirty.

    « Best in Historic Area »

    St. Augustine is a great city. Lots to do and see. Many bars with local entertainment, shops with unique items and reasonable prices. Parking can be a hassle and getting around in a car is not always easy. This is why we always stay the Best Western Spanish quarters. For five bucks a day, you can park your car in a secure lighted area just steps away from your room. This location is an easy walk to most of the historic area fun places to go. It is near the sightseeing train and now has a nice breakfast included in the price. The front office staff is more than helpful. Try it, you'll like it.

    « Great staff - tight quarters »

    Staff is amazing and helpful. Great location, because you can walk to downtown area. It is direct across from Ripley's Museum. It is tight quarters in room and breakfast area and parking on odd numbered rooms is very tight. If you have a large vehicle, request an even number room, as parking is a bit better on that side.

    « Great place within walking distance of all sites »

    This hotel was recommended by the person who repairs our pool. He has stayed at three other Best Westerns in Saint Augustine and said this one is the best by far. This hotel is the cleanest and best maintained I have ever seen. The apples on the food bar were wrapped in plastic wrap, I have never seen that. The rooms were neat and clean. We went with two friends from London, UK, and on our final morning everyone's vote was positive to stay here again. The personnel at this hotel were great, very friendly and professional. The rooms are small and parking tight, but the convenience was well worth it. This hotel is within walking distance to everything. We were here for two days and never had to move the car after we parked it. My wife is handicapped and this is the first place we have ever seen that had a lift in the pool to move handicapped persons in and out of the pool.

    « The place to stay »

    This is the best place to stay while visiting St. Augustine. Everything is in walking distance. They have upgrade their free breakfast from last year to include hot items. The service is great, they turn down your bed and leave chocolate on the bed. Have enjoyed both of our visits to this hotel and will return next year.

    No lobby entrance to the room, no elevator in the hotel no room for two people to move around in the room. Did not like the direct entrance to the room from the outside. did not like to pay for parking. Travelers always have a vehicle should be included in the rate.

    « Great location, reasonable prices, super service »

    Located in easy walking distance to all of the sights in the old city of St Augustine, and less than a block from the tour trolleys. Rooms are not large but are comfortable. The in-room wifi is good (and free). The complementary breakfast has lots of choices and is tasty. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

    « Spanish Quarters BW »

    Location is excellent, right in the heart of everything you want to see and you can walk to anything. Don't expect very much of the hotel itself and you won't be disappointed. The room was worn and musty, AC very noisy, pool dirty and unkempt. The only thing this place has going for it is the location. I'm not sure if that alone is worth the hefty premium in the rates.

    « Location and more »

    What a wonderful surprise this place is...i chose it for the location, walk to everywhere..its an older place remodeled, the rooms are small and dated, but.....very clean, beds very comfortable...nightly turn down service....friendly employees...excellent breakfast buffet ( however not a lot of places to sit to eat, so you have to be lucky to get one of the tables). Try to get a room on the first floor, you can pull your car right up to your door to unload, something todays hotels are all missing. I dont know if there is an elevator to the 2nd floor or not...if not you would have to lug your stuff up the stairs, so you may want to check. We would definitely stay here again.. Perfection for a great price.

    « Lovely little hotel »

    Perfectly situated for exploring St Augustine. The tram tour stop is just over the road and the touristy George street is just a short walk away. This hotel is small but behaves like a larger one with turn down services, a pool and courtesy breakfast. We were delighted that they offered complementary bottles of water to two weary travellers too. The room was comfortable with two double beds, a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Parking on site. Over the road is a brilliant little restaurant - Barnacles Bills- reasonably priced the food good and plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here but have already recommended it to friends!

    « Very Satisfied »

    Although room was small (narrow), it was very clean and queen beds were comfortable. Staff was very helpful. As long as we are just two people, I would definitely stay here again. Location is also good. Cons: $5 daily charge for parking and lot is very tight/small (please not that public parking for handicapped is free in the stat of FL and should have been at BW). Also, no fault of BW, but garbage pick up is at 6am and very noisy when you want to sleep later than 6am.

    Not fancy but a good overall experience. Could walk to the places I wished to see in St. Augustine. Clean. Would stay again. Front desk very helpful upon arrival. Was allowed to park vehicle there although $5.00 charge per day but given the location, well worth the expense. We had a problem with the toilet but it happened the morning of our departure and did not in any way interfere with our stay. We reported the problem and I have to assume it was taken care of. The rooms were small but efficient and clean. Good stay.

    « A motel with tiny rooms but terrific location & staff »

    There was very little room around the two queen sized beds. Most of the bathroom is actually in the room because the toilet/tub area is the only part with a door. The staff was polite & helpful. You can't beat the location since it's close to so many attractions. The carpet was coming apart in the corners & the paint job has crooked lines where two colors meet. This is a simple, quiet, clean & convenient tiny motel(not a real hotel) for a reasonable price.

    Called this hotel when I had to leave another scuzzy hotel in the area. Tori at the front desk was so helpful. Gave us a great rate. She let us see the room before staying. So clean and up to date. She even gave some kind advice when my baby was sick in the middle of the night and brought us new sheets. Would gladly stay our next trip in

    We thought this would be a "nicer" hotel being so close in proximity to the downtown area. We were wrong. The AC was horrid. My husband nor I slept at all. The bathroom has a sliding pocket door, the room itself was quite small and we had a king room. We were told that they will be tearing it down to build a new one, hope that happens soon $200 a night is not well spent here.

    The hotel itself is nice, the rooms are a little small but we weren't in it much anyways. The staff was very friendly and gave us coupons for a couple restaurants. But, when it came time to sleep, a couple walked by our room late talking and it sounded like it was right in our room. Also, about 5am a truck was backing up for about 10 minutes it seemed. The outside noise is pretty noticeable of you don't have a tv on.

    « Great location and very good for price »

    Surprising quality hotel and services for a budget minded stay. The location is great. Easy walking distance to the Castillo de San Marcos site and St George Street pedestrian area which features shopping, restaurants, historical buildings ect. The rooms are small but have been updated. They also offer some nice services i.e. hot breakfast or free room service continental breakfast and bed turn-down in the evening. Best of all, the real measure of any experience is how well customer concerns are addressed. I experienced a problem when I first arrived and the front-desk staff and hotel management did everything possible to resolve the issue and make me happy. It was a complete pleasure receiving such good customer service. The only caution I have is the wifi signal was very weak. I would stay at this facility again.

    When searching for hotels in the historic district, prices are quite steep. While this is reasonable, I personally like to save on the hotel so I am able to spend more on attractions and trinkets. This hotel is close enough to downtown that transportation by foot is best! This hotel is close to downtown but without the price. We have been very pleased!

    « Perfect location on a budget »

    It's all about location in St Augustine if you're there as a tourist and this facility is perfect! Short walking distance to Ripley's, Fountain of Youth, Visitor's Center and just a little further to walk to the Historic District. If you don't want to walk, get a 3 day trolley ticket (available at hotel desk) and one of the stops is right outside the hotel across the street. Friendly staff, not gourmet but a decent hot breakfast, nice pool and jacuzzi. Only negatives: rooms are very small as the king size bed (very comfortable) takes up the space and bathrooms can be a bit claustrophic, so this might not be a good place if you are traveling with kids. Also, parking is 5.00 per day and I didn't see that disclosed when I booked on line. Not a huge deal for a two night stay but if staying longer, it adds up. All in all, we would consider this hotel again!

    « Good Hotel, ideally situated »

    We have stayed at this hotel before, two years ago, when on another touring holiday. We liked the area so much, we decided to include it in the last leg of this trip, too. The check in was friendly and efficient, the price was remarkably reasonable, especially considering its location. We were provided with area maps and personal directions and suggestions from the staff to help us male the most of the trip. Free Wi-Fi worked excellently, and the breakfast was good. If we return to St Augustine, which we certainly hope to do, we will definitely stay here again.
