If you want a place to party and really don?t care about your room then go ahead and stay here.
If however you wanted a romantic weekend in st. Augustine STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!

Pros:
the location is okay, not in the historic district but right over the bridge.
The price was average.
The staff was friendly.
It seemed pretty clean, the carpet didn?t stain my feet and their were no stains on the linens or mattress.
A bar on the premises
CONS:
old, old, old, not in the ,quaint, charming way, but in the built in the 60?s and it?s been downhill ever since way. Everything was chipped and mismatched and none of the fixtures worked exactly the way they should.
The window unit air did not work well and smelled awful.
The wifi connection, it may be free but you might not have hair from all the pulling out while trying to connect, a very poor (if at all) connection.
The toilet and sink/tub water drained slowly.
Paper thin walls.
They posted a note saying there would be a $25 fee for not picking up after yourself, like if there was trash on the floor, not unreasonable, but the part I found disturbing is that included with that was if you don?t wash your own coffee cup. I don?t want a coffee cup that may or may not have been washed well by the last occupant.
No safe, but it did have a mini fridge that worked well.

One disclaimer is that we stayed in one of the rooms ?across the street? is how they put it on their website. I?ve been told by the person who recommended the place to me that the main part of the hotel is better maintained but I will never find out.

Conch House is a really fun place to go, especially Happy Hour with their $2 drafts and $3 wine and well drinks. If you want an exotic cocktail, they make a pretty mean Goombay Smash, Mango Daiquiri, and Pink Lemonade. Friday Happy Hour is particularly fun because they offer some free food and entertainment along with the discounted beer and wine. You can watch the fishing charters bring in their catch and the view of the water is fantastic.

The restaurant itself is beautiful, so the 45 minute wait for the table was no problem. The real problem starts here. It took 20 minutes to get the wrong drinks. Then after 1 1/2 hours our food came, or I should say half our food came. Some wrong orders and 1 person in our party never received her dinner at all. The real kicker. At the end of the meal we asked to see the manager so that he wouldnt charge us for the food we never received, or the food that came out wrong that we sent back. We were also hoping for an apology. He actually started screaming at us! He even threatened to call the cops?!?! If werent so famished for something to eat we probably would have stayed just see him try to explain to the police why he was calling them. Terrible, terrible service

My family was in from out of town and I thought Conch house would be a great choice because of the view. For the prices, I think the food is mediocre. It's ashame the food is not better, the location cant be beat.

This is a wonderful restaurant with a friendly environment. You can dine inside, on the porch, or in the tiki huts that lay over the water. The tables are huge so even if you have a party of 8-10 you can still dine on the water comfortably. A little pricey, but highly worth it. They even have a gift shop and mini motel if you are interested! What more could you ask for?

Pros: close parking, waterfront dining, gift shop

Cons: , expensive

A good place to go if you are into casual dining. Service could be improved, including their menu. Casual jeans type atmosphere. Overall a nice place to go for a lazy Saturday.

Besides the best conch fritters in this area. Reggae Sundays are the best. Don't forget the Annual Chowder Debate in November either.

Food is good, not great. Tiki huts overlooking the water and boats make for a unique dining experience.

This was the biggest let down I have had in a dining experience. Don't believe the hype. Food was not well cooked, very pricy, and poor service.
