Perfect spot for a short getaway. Its attention to the little things and indulgence that smaller places such as this nail opposed to larger hotels. Walkability to the heart of st augustine downtown area is easy and the parking lot utilized is an easy walk back to the hotel. Breakfast the day we were there was spot on. Great dining within walking distance. treat yourself, you deserve it.
