This was our third time staying here and although it is still a nice hotel we were a little underwhelmed. The restaurant at the hotel did not appear to be open every time I went by and we were placed on the first floor which was very noisy for this light sleeper.

I stayed for 2 nights. Charming and welcoming. At the lobby, there was always water with fresh fruits which was so great in the August humidity. The staff was great. All the common areas were spotless and same with our room. The restaurant is not owned by the hotel but what a bonus.

Arrived at the Guy Harvey Resort in Saint Augustine Florida. After receiving my room key from Bev the front desk clerk I proceeded to the room that I had paid for on the top floor. I was very embarrassed to find the room occupied. Can you say " SECURITY BREACH " Haven't heard of this since the 1980's and especially after 9/11. I apologized to my fellow guests and called the front desk clerk to ask what happened and the front desk clerk Jessica explained that she was confused by the room mistake. After waiting 20 minutes for someone to come bring my bags to another room down on the third floor which was supposedly renovated and still never properly cleaned I was too tired at this point to address the sewer flies on the bathroom walls and bath towels, the cracked mirror, the rusting door and sticky dirty floors. It was clear to me of real issues going on here from front desk service to house keeping and health issues to cold food and extremely slow Wi-Fi. Such a shame since this place is located near the beach. I wanted to give this hotel a five star but instead it's a negative five star. If my name were the famous Guy Harvey I wouldn't be associated with this company. If your looking for a decent place near the beach for a good price and clean accommodation's go somewhere else!

This was our first time at this hotel and we would definitely stay there again. Check in was quick and simple. Rooms were nicely appointed, clean, very spacious shower. We were offered a breakfast voucher for $8.50 a person for La Cocina, the hotels restaurant, that includes entree, non alcoholic drink, and tax. So worth it!!! Breakfast was excellent! Hotel is within walking distance of the beach.

My family of 4 stayed here for a wedding a couple weeks ago. We were given a free upgrade to a larger room but it smelled like a sewer. It was 700 sq feet but had a huge hallway and I felt like it was a weird layout and a waste of space. After a complaint they came up with scented spray which didn't solve the problem so they moved us to a different room on the same floor. I preferred the layout of our 2nd room. They also gave us free breakfast for the inconvenience of changing rooms during my kids bedtime. We didn't ask for any compensation but appreciated the gesture. Cons- -only one elevator and it's extremely slow -thin walls, we could hear other guests -scratchy, stiff, noisy sheets the rustled a lot when we moved in bed (I probably wouldn't have noticed if I wasn't sharing a room with my kids) -no bathtub only a shower so I had to bathe my baby in the sink Pros -easy access to the beach -easy check in -friendly staff -great customer service
