It is the second time that my husband and I stay in this hotel. It is super clean!!! the rooms are spacious and bright. People are always nice.The restaurant in the first floor is very good, a little expensive but delicious food. The only bad thing is that there is not a bar at the hotel, so a little inconvenient , but plenty of places around a close to the hotel. The pool is fantastic!! Very close to the beach.

Spent 3 nights here in June and really enjoyed this Ascend property. We were checked in by Steven and a young lady he was training. While checking in he gave us a little gift of water and cookies. His attention to details and recommendations were outstanding! We were in room 401 overlooking the road but it was very quiet. We purchased the breakfast tickets at the desk and the food was good. If every Comfort Suites hotel was like this we would never stay anywhere else. One tip to save money would be to pay in advance on the website. We saved almost $100 doing this.

This was our fourth stay here and we were still pleasantly happy with this hotel. Upon checking in we had an issue (on our part), which Zoee pleasantly greeted us with a smile and so professionally took care of this for us. This hotel is very clean and has a beautiful Spanish style decor. The walk is only a 2 min easy stroll til your feet are in the sand on the beach. The patio furniture I'm the pool area was in excellent shape and the pool was always clean. Our housekeeper Eva did a fantastic job and the added touch she left with the towel animals gave us an extra smile each day. There was complimentary coffee in lobby each a.m. and refreshing cucumber water available all day. We had a standard street side view room which was very spacious. The beds and pillows were in great shape for a pleasant nights rest. I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will be staying here again.

"Sweet Find"

Stayed over the 4th of July holiday for a few days and found Castillo Real to be a hidden gem. The decor is a bit unexpected with its "old world" look, but the rooms are in good shape and comfy. Had a room on the first floor with a large bathroom with huge tile shower. Only complaint is that the water pressure was anemic so it was a bit tough to get the sand from the beach off completely. The pool and hot tub were clean and well used - thoroughly enjoyed the little water feature for the kids. And just a few steps down the side street to the dunes and onto the beach made it perfectly to easy to run back and forth with the kids and due to pop up thunderstorms. Really a great location and very friendly staff. I would stay here again!

"Excellent location on St. Augustine Beach and interesting decor"

We spent four nights at Castillo Real. This is an older property that has been nicely updated. The decor is interesting and the lobby and was inviting. It is a short, 200-yard or so, walk to the beach from the hotel. Our spacious king room was on the fourth floor facing the street and was very quiet. The furnishings were nice and the bed was comfortable, but the carpet was somewhat worn. The bathroom had a large tile shower, a vanity with makeup mirror and separate vanity with the sink. The pool area is very nice with plenty of lounges, chairs and tables. The hotel provides towels for the pool at the front desk. Staff were helpful and friendly. The grounds are very nicely kept. The government/military rate we had was very competitive which made our stay even more enjoyable. I recommend this hotel. I would give it five stars except for the carpet. You won't be disappointed if you're looking for a nice, affordable beach hotel in St. Augustine. Breakfast at La Cocina, located in the hotel, is excellent!
