My husband and I had our daughter's wedding on the beach and the reception in the hotel. Everything was absolutely beautiful. Austin Dyess was awesome as the event planner. He was very detailed and helpful with everything, and calming when things got hectic. Must also mention our bartender Sari, who was top notch. A special thanks also go out to...

Staff was great, rooms were clean and overall very quiet(we keep a fan running which blocks any noise). Nice easy walk to the beach and only 5-6 miles from main attractions. Would definately book here again.

We stayed Saturday, Nov. 9-the night of our wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean, it was right on the beach, and there was affordable taxi/shuttle transportation to downtown St. Augustine. Although the Holiday Isle is an older establishment and needs attention from the owners (investing money to update the facility is...

I was in room 106 and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The room was large, well maintained and clean. I had a parking lot view, however a short walk out the door had me on the beach.

My husband I stayed at this hotel November 13 & 14, and had a very enjoyable stay. Although the hotel is an older property, it was well maintained. The staff were exceptional, from Maryann at he front desk, to Sara in housekeeping, and to the engineering team. I have seldom seen nicer, friendlier or more helpful employees.

This is not a fancy place but a cab into the old city for 6 was only $16 dollars. Close to Dune's Cracker, Conche House and many more fun places to eat and hang out. This is a very old motel but didn't go to stay in room! Beds are very, very comfortable. Nice pool and right on the beach.

We were here 3 days. We had no issue checking in early. Since we were out of season the bar & restaurant were closed the days we stayed. However Bridget offered a glass of wine...when I whined. Lol. Two different nights Bridget was so helpful with maps & directions to restaurants. The pool was beautiful & the beach gorgeous!
