To preface this, when Mike and I are looking for hotels for our weekend trips, we are looking for cheap places to pass out after a day of exploring. We would much rather put our money towards experiences in the area and food than towards a fancy place we sleep in. That is not to say we want a junky place either. We basically look for clean hotels with a bed to sleep in and a shower in a decent location for our adventures.
The Days Inn in St. Augustine, while not the most beautiful place, checks off our must haves. We have stayed there on both of our trips and it works for us. It is an easy 10 minute walk from the major attractions and St. George Street. It has beds that have always been clean and provide all the very basic amenities. For food, there is a 24 hour Denny's at the hotel and several other food choices within minutes.
