From Hotel Maven Joyamg....The St. Augustine Beach Front Resort is a run down, old "hotel" in complete disrepair. I was shocked when I checked in because it was very expensive and I assumed it was a nice resort. It took about a half hour wait until I was able to check in because their computers are slow and outdated. The room was dirty, the carpet was worn out, the air conditioning unit didn't work properly, the sheets were so worn out it was unbelievable. here was rust all over the appliances.
I was so disgusted I had to check out the next day. There are many nice hotels in the area and this is not one of them. What a terrible experience.
· St. Augustine Resort reviews [TripAdvisor]
The inns' seven locations are offering the "Seniors in Love" deal. Normal prices range from $118- $189, but a stay here can be especially affordable:
Reserve a two-night stay and the second night is half-price , or stay for three nights and the third night is free.
All of the locations are small, cozy places with wraparound porches and sensible decoration.
St. Augustine dubs itself as "The Nation's oldest city," whether this is true or not, there will definitely be some older members of society soaking up some southern hospitality.
A great gift for Grandpa and Grandma, or your Maude.

We received a tip that suggested that the New England Patriots team, and staff, are staying at the Renaissance Resort in St. Augustine, FL., which is 45 miles from Jacksonville.
According to the hotel website the resort is a three diamond property complete with complimentary coffee, oversized bathrooms with a tv in every bathroom, and two golf courses on site.
Sounds like plenty of entertainment to keep Brady and the boys out of trouble before the big game.
