The room itself and the people who work there are fine. However, when I asked if there was anything not loaded with fat for breakfast, the answer was "no." Not even some low-fat milk for the cereal! Full-fat yogurt, port sausages, eggs, and cheesy something. I was thankful for the oatmeal.

They are pouring money into renovations of this motel. I look forward tobseeing whatvthey have done in a few years. Nice, clean rooms. Friendly staff. Good size, clean, family pool. BreAkfast provided, but not outstanding. For Memorial Day, $99 a night was a very good price. Bottom line... save some $, stay here, and put your money to other things!

My friends and I decided to make a spontaneous trip down to Saint Augustine over Memorial Day weekend. We were able to book a room on the drive down from Jacksonville for $99/night. Took a chance on this location and we're so wonderfully surprised! The updates to the hotel are very nice. The room looked great and was especially clean. Let's not forget breakfast: it was amazing! The location is close enough to all the downtown action too! Glad to have found this spot, plan on visiting again in th... Read more

If you are looking for a clean, affordable place, this is it. That was all we needed- a clean, comfortable bed, free parking, and free breakfast. Best thing is the laminate on the floors. I hate carpeting in hotel rooms. However, since they are renovating, we tracked in quite a bit odd dirt into the 1st floor room. We bought a $5 mat at Walmart, and problem solved. Front office is really helpful and nice. Old town trolley tours will pick you up from the hotel. Again, this is a no fr... Read more

A sweet gem located near the historic district. Even though the hotel is currently under renovation, the rooms were comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was pleasant surprise. It changes daily, but we enjoyed huge pre made chocolate chunk pancakes, eggs, sausage, French toast and cheese grits along with a full array of continent options. The staff were pleasant and helpful. We will definitely be back again.

The stay started off poorly as we had booked a ground floor room with a king bed. when we arrived all they had were two queens on the second floor. They said the mixup was the fault of the company we booked with online and they should not have promised us the first floor room. Apart from that, however the room was clean and the free breakfast was good. Beds were not the most comfortable but all in all it's a good, pet friendly hotel in an a convenient location.

Very nice and clean room, good parking, close to downtown, nice swimming pool. We spend there one night, the only issue we had is you can hear the train at night, more than once. Very nice personnel at reception and cleaning lady. We went two weeks after memorial day so prices still kind of high, probably try again low season.

We chose Southern Oaks for several reasons, price was reasonable, free breakfast and pet friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. I liked that there was no rugs, just laminate and tile floors. They gave us a room on the first floor which was good since we were traveling with our dogs. There is a fenced in dog park which was great. The breakfast was one of the best I have had. The young gentlemen tending the breakfast area was extremely nice. A few things I did not know until I arrive... Read more

Went with my dad and cousin, they gave us rooms next to each other which is what we wanted. Staff was friendly, breakfast was good. Rooms looked and smelled clean. Housekeeping was on top of everything. Beds were soft which we were really hoping for! Nice pool. Conveniently located depending on your plans. The remodeling was still in progress on the other building. Only issue was the neighbors kids running around on the balcony (2nd floor) which isn't the hotels fault but the walls between rooms...

Yes this place is dog friendly but you shouldn't have to sacrifice cleanliness for a dog park. We stayed for five night and our room was not cleaned until the fourth day. Even after that we still found dusk on most the surfaces and there was a ball of white dog fur under the bed (our dog is all black). We had to go to the front desk three times for toilet paper because they would restock. The employees would stand around talk and smoke on the clock in front of all the guests.

This is a great family hotel. The rooms are clean with hardwood floors. It has a nice, clean pool. But there are two reasons I would come back - the service and the breakfast. Every employee treated you like you were coming into their own home. They spoke every time they saw you, held the doors, just above the expectation. Then the breakfast was amazing. Every day a different menu completely home made. Real eggs, real, fresh, chocolate chip pancakes. Seriously delicious. If you have a family, th... Read more

I moved a night stand to plug in my phone and discovered LOTS of dust. The mini frig was not running, so our cold drinks had to wait while it cooled down. The WORST part was the AC.

Excellent choice for our weekend stay. Was pleasantly surprised with the vinyl wood floors instead of carpet. Liked the walk-in shower and having the 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner and the liquid shower and hand soap in dispensers was ingenious. The staff was phenomenal!

We were very pleased with the cleanliness. My husband wore white socks and walked around quite a bit throughout our stay and when he took them off..they were white and clean. The breakfast was outstanding. The entire personnel were pleasant and friendly. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.
