I searched internet reviews of this hotel before placing a reservation. Most of the reviews were 5 stars. The photos showed a nice new room and views of the water from the balconies. The first floor rooms were being renovated. We stayed in room 208 which had a great view of the harbor at Saint Augustine. Sophia the girl at the check-in counter was fantastic and very helpful with anything I asked for. She mentioned that they have a happy hour from 4-6 pm and included with the room fee were 2 free glasses of wine. We dropped our bags in our room and headed to the lounge for the happy hour. The elevator to the second floor was safe but very slow. We received our 2 free glasses of good wine and headed to the patio to watch the sunset. There were 10-15 people on the patio and they were all very friendly. The sunset view from this hotel is fantastic. They also have a 10 person whirlpool on the patio area. Sophia asked us if we needed any ideas for dinner and she offered a coupon to The A1A Aleworks bar. We walked safely over the bridge to Saint Augustine downtown area and had a nice dinner at A1A Ale Works. Our room at Marker 8 Hotel was a very nice and modern, very comfortable bed and very nice pillows and the bathroom was great. The balcony had rocking chairs to sit and view the lights of the bay at St. Augustine. Parking at the hotel was free. All the other hotels in downtown St. Augustine charge $12-15 for parking. They offer free breakfast and it was the best free breakfast.
