Across the bridge from the beach and within an easy walk of all the historic attractions of downtown St. Augustine, the Hampton Inn St. Augustine-Historic District is a good family base for exploring the area. Nearby attractions to check out with the family include the 120-year old lighthouse, the historic Fountain of Youth Museum and Potter’s Wax Museum, which kids love. The hotel provides a free hot breakfast every morning or you can opt for the ‘on the run’ breakfast bag if you’re in a rush to head out and get the day started. Other amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, fitness center and free high-speed internet access.
Guestrooms and suites have a large LCD TV, microwave, refrigerator, coffeemaker and ironing facilities. There are also nightlights in the bathroom and comfortable bedding to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep.

Just want to compliment the staff for their courtesy and helpfulness. In particular Kenny who works tirelessly to keep the breakfast buffet stocked up and the area clean. Chantel Chivese at the front desk was extremely helpful. She guided us to the free shuttle that took us to the trolley and provided us free bottles of water for the ride. They truly put the word accommodating in accommodations.
The check in was very helpful and efficient. I left my glasses at the desk and was called by front desk to retrieve them. Breakfast was exceptional with smoothies and egg white omelettes, albeit the pre-made type. Hostess, Cindy was great. Would like real glasses in the room!
