Verified Reviews of The Ponce St. Augustine Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Just Okay"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Stayed here while in town for a wedding. Not a bad experience but way over priced for the kind of motel it was. Was clean though and looked as if the bathroom had been recently renovated. Not much in the way of amenities. Tired but clean.

"Not For Me."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This is a tired motel with rooms that are clean but lacking any sense of design. The king size bed was comfortable and the TV set worked fine. The breakfast was no different than a wyndham or similar low cost chain. Beware the back of the motel where a freight train runs at all hours. Better to spend a little more and be on the beach or in the downtown area.

Good location for us for our wedding but most notably the staff was great, especially Joel and his companions! Thank you.

"Great Place"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Everything is clean and well maintained. My only complaint is if you don't have kids make sure you stay on second floor. Kids talking and playing above us was pretty loud. But this is an amazing place and so very clean and upgraded! Love the decor.

"Thank You"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
My friends and I stayed at the Ponce Hotel in September for a wedding. We had a problem with the different room rates through the Knot Wedding website. The management solved this problem in the long run and refunded us our entire stay's cost. We are very grateful for the manager Michael who listened to our complaint and helped to keep us as future guests. I recommend this hotel.

"Do Not Stay Here!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We were so disappointed with the Ponce. First of all, it is NOT a hotel. It's a motel, with doors opening to the outside. It looks nothing like the photos on the website. It's a seedy place. There are much nicer places to stay in St. Augustine. It's right on a very busy road, so you hear traffic all night long. There are railroad tracks behind the motel, a statement which they make you initial when you check in. I booked this place as it was recommended on The Knot, the wedding website, as we were going to a wedding. I booked the rate through a 3rd party, unbeknownst to me. My friend that stayed right next door to me did the same thing. However, her room cost $80 more than my room for two nights for the exact same type of room. We brought this up at the front desk and asked them to honor the same lower rate for the room and they were defensive and not at all helpful. They just said, "there's nothing we can do, since you booked it through a 3rd party". They told us to talk to the manager. We did and she said the same thing. Basically, too bad for you, we're not going to do anything to compensate. Their inflexibility and nasty attitude really left a bad taste in our mouths. We would never return to this crappy, seedy place with people in charge unwilling to compromise at all.

"Wish I stayed somewhere else."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Very disappointing. The pictures online did not match what the Motel looked like in person. It is a Motel, not a Hotel, with a train track in the back that blocks the waterway. Management was not helpful and was not willing to correct a room rate dispute. My friend stayed in an adjoining room that was identical to mine for a cheaper rate. The manager was not available and when I finally got a hold of her through email several days later, she said there was nothing that she could do to match the lower price. We were staying to attend a wedding in St. Augustine and this was supposed to be the special discounted rate for the guests who were to attend the wedding. Yet, we had much different rates. My final bill was almost $100 more than the other room for the same two night stay.. There are many other hotels in this area, I should have chosen a different one. Very disappointed.
