The room was very comfortable, and the location proved better than we thought it might be. It is within walking distance of a "Red Train" stop. The breakfasts were excellent --- a satisfying way to start the day.

This is a newly remodeled motel. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The location is about 2 miles from the historic part of town. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Their breakfast buffet is above your typical buffet at chain two star hotels with a warm food station and nice selection of fresh fruit. Can only recommend it!

Rooms were updated clean and comfy, no carpeting! They have a free breakfast from 7am to 11am with everything you could want and food was tasty. They have a full size pool and dining hall for breakfast. Pets are welcome. We stayed on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool, it was very quiet after about 10pm. Also, free WiFi. Check-in...

Breakfast was as excellent! Rooms were great! It is dog friendly. Best hotel shower ever! Friendly staff. We had to wait about 30 minutes before our room was ready to check in. Everything else was wonderful! It is close to many attractions.

Southern Oaks Inn has the feel of a family run hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful and the room was super clean. The rooms are fully equipped with all the necessities including liquid wall mounted body soap and shampoo/conditioner. I mention that because if you are not a fan of liquid body soap or 2 in 1 shampoo, bring...

It was a weekend in St Augustine, so we paid more than we hoped. Other than that, and that the room was a little crowded (if a person was sitting at the desk, access was pretty much blocked off to the bathroom), we enjoyed our 2-day stay. Wonderful hot breakfast with different items served each morning. Quiet. Friendly helpful staff....

The hotel and property are clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Good location and the price is reasonable. We did have some housekeeping issues though. Morning one Ok, morning two, no washcloths, morning three, no towels, morning four, no show at all, nothing touched. The rooms are somewhat spartan but adequate. All and all I would probably stay again,...
