Holiday Inn Express - Saint Augustine North guyonthego

Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites in St. Augustine is a 4 story mid-range hotel that was built in 2010. It has 82 rooms of which 19 are suites. The rooms include a small refrigerator and microwave oven, and the suites have a small kitchenette as well. This is a non-smoking hotel, and pets are not accepted. There is an indoor pool and workout room. Parking is free, and the hotel offers a complimentary hot breakfast. Room rates generally range from $100-130 and suites are about $30 extra.

The Holiday Inn is 1/4 mile from Interstate 95 and 7 miles from the historic part of St. Augustine, so it’s convenient for both road warriors looking for someplace near the highway to catch some z’s and more budget-conscious vacationers who want to see the historic and cultural sites of St. Augustine but not pay top dollar at a bed and breakfast. There were several additional hotels near the Holiday Inn and a couple fast food restaurants but nothing else meaningful in the immediate area. Highway noise was not really an issue inside the hotel, but if you are noise sensitive request a room facing away from the highway.

The front desk clerk was pleasant and efficient at check-in. Both the room and the bathroom were clean and in good order. Climate controls and bathroom equipment also worked properly. There were ample towels in the bathroom so no need to request additional ones at the front desk. The room also was quiet relative to hallway noise. It was easy to fall asleep quickly here which was partially due to being very tired and partially due to a comfortable bed. A couple of minor negatives (and they are fairly minor) were a sticky substance that was left on the entrance tiles by the main door and the lack of a luggage rack. Otherwise, the stay earns high marks from both a service and room perspective. The Holiday Inn provided good value for a $126 room rate and therefore earns a recommendation and green star on BlitzQuest.
