"Great beachside hotel just a short drive from the historic district"

This was our first time at this hotel and we would definitely stay there again. Check in was quick and simple. Rooms were nicely appointed, clean, very spacious shower. We were offered a breakfast voucher for $8.50 a person for La Cocina, the hotels restaurant, that includes entree, non alcoholic drink, and tax. So worth it!!! Breakfast was excellent! Hotel is within walking distance of the beach.

"Decent hotel and excellent customer service"

My family of 4 stayed here for a wedding a couple weeks ago. We were given a free upgrade to a larger room but it smelled like a sewer. It was 700 sq feet but had a huge hallway and I felt like it was a weird layout and a waste of space. After a complaint they came up with scented spray which didn't solve the problem so they moved us to a different room on the same floor. I preferred the layout of our 2nd room. They also gave us free breakfast for the inconvenience of changing rooms during my kids bedtime. We didn't ask for any compensation but appreciated the gesture. Cons- -only one elevator and it's extremely slow -thin walls, we could hear other guests -scratchy, stiff, noisy sheets the rustled a lot when we moved in bed (I probably wouldn't have noticed if I wasn't sharing a room with my kids) -no bathtub only a shower so I had to bathe my baby in the sink Pros -easy access to the beach -easy check in -friendly staff -great customer service

"Wonderful stay!"

We are very happy with our choice to stay at Castillo Real! We have stayed at many choice hotels and this one is part of Ascend. It’s very close to the beach, the rooms are very nice. The pool and hot tub were well maintained. We had a room directly next to the pool and enjoyed the ease of playing at the pool with kids. The restaurant in the hotel is absolutely fantastic. We enjoyed a nice late night dinner there. The girl at the front desk was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. We will stay here again on future visits to St. Augustine.

"Calls itself a resort.....but....."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 18, 2018 NEW
Maybe the nicest place on St. Augustine Beach. But not much competition. Built with materials to look like a Spainish or Portuguese hotel. Rooms very ample. One table hadn't been wiped clean when we arrived, but other than that it was very clean. Comfortable bed. On the beach side of the road, but didn't extend anywhere near the actual beach. For a "resort", very small pool. Very small...squeezed in. No bar. That was surprising since booze is a money maker. So once you returned to the hotel, that was it. Very nice restaurant that priced itself out of our market. If they had a fixed menu, we would have taken a bite. Staff very, very nice. Tried hard to connect and be helpful. Always had a smile. I don't know if there is a better place, so if going there again I would stay. Walking distance to Sunset Grille.

First time at an Ascend property. Try to use Choice Hotels as much as possible. This was a bit more than we usually spend, however, I had saved up my Choice Rewards points for the 2 day stay. Hotel didn't seem to be full, but we ended up with a street side room. 2 queens. The décor and art was beautifully done. Would have like more comfortable chairs in the room. Low and no arms, and no foot rest. I had just sprained a ligament in my knee and had a hard time icing it while in the chair. Good internet service. Everyone, including Jennifer provided excellent customer service. Loved the walk-in shower.
