Summer time break
was a busy one for us, with getting ready my daughters for his or her new college and
working our companies, so we virtually did not get an opportunity to have a
summer time trip.

It isn’t like us not having a summer time household trip, so I made positive to
squeeze in a visit earlier than my ladies returned to highschool.

Planning this journey was final minute, and it looks like all our journeys

Our drive from Atlanta to St. Augustine was over six hours, and we arrived
very late within the night on the day of our check-in.

Because of the resort being bought out for the night time, we had been put into one of many
final rooms obtainable. Sadly, the room we had been positioned in was on the
first flooring, proper on prime of the parking storage, plus the view exterior the
balcony was of the courtyard once we wished the ocean view.

Each points weren’t a giant deal; nevertheless, the lavatory was not properly
ventilated, so it had a lingering odor that would not go away. And the 2
Queen measurement beds appear to be the dimensions of a full measurement. So, Mr. M and I had been
very uncomfortable sleeping within the small mattress collectively.

One other unhealthy factor was the complimentary breakfast; not excellent. The meals
tastes bland and chilly. However that is the way it at all times is with Embassy Suites.
Nevertheless, the made-to-order omelet was first rate.

Not all was unhealthy with this Embassy Suites at St. Augustine; it is a
lovely, immaculate resort! It is among the best Embassy Suites I’ve ever
stayed in! Our room had comfortable, coastal tones that gave the house a pleasant
nautical contact.

one rest room. The toilet scenario may be solved by getting a connecting
room, however that is a costlier possibility I did not need to do.

enjoyable Zen as you step exterior by the pool.

a retailer to get all of your seaside gear. So after I noticed that they had a restaurant, I

flavorful with the correct quantity of savory spices that had my mouth

Additionally, the restaurant is great for beachgoers, with tasty meals, ocean
views, reside music, roof-top eating, and a shaded patio in a laid-back
