        Great pet friendly hotel!

        Very pet friendly, they provide dogs beds and bowls in all the rooms and have a dog park on site. They do require that dogs are in a crate if they’re going to be left alone in the room.

        Our Favorite Place in St. Augustine

        Great staff, room is really nice and spacious. This year they added a doggie bed and folding doggie bowls which are fabulous for taking around town with you but you cannot keep them. The fenced in Doggie park is really nice and they are upgrading it. Full (Not just continental) breakfast for the humans! Can't wait until our visit next year!

        Very Good

        The Inn is huge a great deal of space to walk your dog. The dog walk area was closed when we stayed there. The Inn manager was accommodating when we had an issue with the location .of the room The room itself was small but clean.Bathroom was very tight. Breakfast was outstanding So many places use faux eggs.These were real and delicious Best home fries I have had in quite some time.

        The best dog hotel

        In our many travels with our two pups (larger dogs) this hotel ranks as one of the best. Hotel staff friendly. Property well taken care of. Larger room (we were outside the dog area). Dog area fenced so pups could run freely. In addition there is large grass areas. Leave your car parked at hotel (for free) and take shuttle with your pup to downtown St Augustine. No charge and so convenient. It was truly a wonderful stay and I can’t wait to stay here again.

        Great Stay For Us And Our Pup!

        Friendly staff. Great location. On site off leash dog play area. Complimentary shuttle to downtown that allowed us to ride with our dog.

        Great Place

        Have stayed here before and very pet friendly, good breakfast and have a free shuttle to downtown and other sites.

      • Oct. 10, 2019
        Will go again

        First stay here and can say they care about their facility room was clean grounds well maintained and they have a good area for the dogs to play off leash at the front desk they have jars of treats for the fur babies. The people that we interacted with was very friendly. Didn't get to use the pool on this trip but did look at it and it was very inviting. We will be going back again very soon.

        Loved this place!

        Awesome place to stay with your pet! They made it very convenient for you to take your dog out to do his thing. The little enclosed area was really nice and just across from the pet friendly rooms. The breakfast was awesome! The fellow serving breakfast was very nice and even remembered us from the day before. Nice selection for breakfast too! The menu even changed the 2 days we stayed there. Highly recommend this place and will definitely stay there again!

        Great for dogs

        Too much smoking outside of designated smoking areas for non-smoking humans

        Great staff

        I made a mistake with my reservation and the staff were so helpful, they even had a list of dog friendly places we could go. We loved it.

      • Jul. 3, 2019

        The lobby is beautiful and staff are super friendly. Clean, spacious rooms. We were put right across from the fenced dog area for ease of access. Left our Golden in the room a few times for dips in the large pool and while we took the complimentary shuttle downtown for drinks and some nightlife. Breakfast in the morning was delicious! Would definitely stay again!

        Awesome Hotel

        I stayed one night with my dog, Luna, We had a wonderful stay. The staff is the friendliest hotel staff I have ever encountered. Every single employee I encountered was attentive and friendly. Great fenced in doggie are with a beautiful oak tree and benches (off leash)and a large grass area to walk around (on leash) HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

        A true dog friendly hotel

        We spent One night in this hotel with our two dogs, a 90 pound Doberman and a 60 pound mixed breed. Checking in was a pleasure especially because they had two big jars of treats for the dogs to enjoy. Front desk staff was friendly and informative. The hotel features a small fenced in play yard which came in handy for exercising the dogs. Breakfast was included and we had an outdoor area to sit at with the dogs while we ate. It worked out well because it was nice weather but I can see how if it was raining this might be a problem especially because the door to the patio was an exit only and you had to walk back around to the lobby to go back into the dining area. Overall I would recommend this as a dog friendly place

        Great For Dogs!

        We stayed here for about a week. The rooms were always cleaned and the hardwood floor was a plus. We were in a room right across from the big fenced in dog area. Gibbs loved that he could run around each day! It was double gated and had poop bags to clean up. Only thing that was bad was people couldn’t clean up after their dog.

        Loved the fenced in dog patch

        It's not the closest to St Augustine's historical district but the hotel is nice. The customer service wasn't the best for me and that's the only reason for not getting 5 bones. The room we stayed in was super pet friendly (or baby proofed). It was like they knew we were coming with a wild pup. He really loved the shower and that it had no lip. He was scared of water at the time and would come sneaking in while you showered and lay at the edge. We both loved the little dog patch for them. Would probably watch small dogs off leash in it though. Us people loved being so close to a store and that's the one plus side to being out of the historical district. All in all it was a great first experience for the pup and for us as well.

        Super nice property!

        My husband and I and our mini dachshund Rudy were impressed with the cleanliness and service of this beautifully landscaped hotel. It has a nice large dog run and the front office staff gave Rudy biscuits every day. The free shuttle service saved us the hassle and expense of driving on narrow crowded streets. The hot breakfast is served until 10am weekdays and 11am on weekends. We had a wonderful experience!

        Beautiful Little Dog Park

        This place was beautiful inside and out, the hardwood floors and dog park gave much needed peace of mind! Not to mention seeing all the different pups up early walking around in the morning! Obviously a fan favorite among dog parents !

      • More than a year ago
        Great place

        This place looks like a cheesy motel from the outside but upscale on the inside. Very pet friendly and there is a place to take your fur babies to run around. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was on point. I would stay there again.

        5+ Bones

        There is a big difference between "Pet Friendly" and "Pet Tolerant". Southern Oaks Inn was beyond Pet Friendly! We were greeted with smiles and a list of doggy friendly restaurants, shops, activities, and animal hospitals. Our room was very clean and right next to the dog run/park. Our dogs loved playing in the park and getting a bunch of attention from the workers and other guests. We can't wait to come back!

      • More than a year ago

        We booked this hotel through bringfido and I’m so glad we did. The hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. On checkin we were given a list of dog friendly restaurants and sights. They also had dog biscuits for our fur babies.
        We will come back here again when visiting St. Augustine.

        Great stay!

        Great place

        Room was nice, fridge and microwave are always welcome. The fenced-in dog park was great. Our Cavalier was so happy to be off lead for the first time in over a week. The breakfast was also very good, We would go there again.

      • More than a year ago
        Great stay

        Clean and very pretty friendly hotel, fenced yard to play with your dog and nice area
        Close to the historical downtown, 1.5 miles probably

        Great Night's Sleep

        I mean, it's definitely a budget hotel. They don't give individual soaps, there really isn't anything fancy about the place. It's not the Hilton! I will say that the walls are a little thin; we never heard our neighbors but we did hear some guys talking outside who were sitting and enjoying the weather, but they went in about 11ish and were really polite. They weren't being rowdy or anything. That being said, we had a fantastic night there!
        For the money, it's great. Very clean, no smell or dust. Big TV, mini fridge, and microwave. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've slept on in a hotel.
        The continental breakfast is free and AWESOME. The people at the front counter are SO nice. There is a good sized dog run to get out some of your dog's energy before you go exploring. There is a CVS right across the street. Our dog, Pretzel, loved that she had her own little couch to herself. We felt very safe there, and it was only 5 minutes from all the major attractions. If I was going to stay for a few nights, I may look at something different, but we really just wanted a dog friendly place to crash. We got all that and a little more!
        Oh, and there is a 15 dollar dog deposit, but the cost is low enough that it's not a big deal :)

        very clean and nice

        My family and I stayed here with our pet Rottweiler .... They were very nice and the rooms were cute and a great size .... I would def recommend this place to anyone visiting this area

        Great Place

        This is great place to stay with our two pups. The fenced in dog walk is amazing!! The free breakfast was also very nice!! We will not be staying anywhere else when come to home away from home.

        Great Stay

        Large motel not too far from historic St. Augustine. Very clean, with laminate wood floors in the rooms. Breakfast served daily: eggs, sausage, grits, biscuits and gravy, as well as cold buffet. Management could not be more helpful, providing a list of dog friendly restaurants, tourist attractions, and name of a local vet. A small fenced in area with grass is on the property. The trolley stops at the motel .

      • More than a year ago
        Will never stay any place else

        What a fantastic find!!! This hotel definitely caters to both dogs and their parents!! Everyone is so friendly and accomodating. When you ask at the front desk, they will give you a list of dog friendly restaurants and things to do and see. The rooms are comfortable with wood floors, and there is even a dog park for your pup to go play after a day of sightseeing! We will definitely be back and will recommend it to all of our friends and family.
