The room was spacious and comfortable. The room, pool areas, and property were clean and well groomed. The office provided playing cards on request, and had free DVDs available. The mattress was really comfortable, without "low spots". The beach was absolutely amazing, just like a postcard! This ...

We stayed in a double queen bed room in the shorter building. Biggest negative was no balcony. Pools and hot tub were nice. Rooms very, very clean and updated. Bathroom was small, but very nice. Plenty of street parking so I didn’t use the $15/day parking. Great shuttle to/from St Armand’s.

I certainly liked that Kate our housecleaning pro was there to give me some extra k-cups and allow for a noon checkout. Room was spotless and beautiful. Great room with and awesome comfy bed and excellent shower. No shoes needed from the short walk to the beach a few feet away. Just splendid!

The Coquina is right on the beach which makes it a great place to stay. However, it is old and not a place that I would consider luxurious, but rather quaint and a throwback to the old motels of old Florida. I didn't like that there was not any shampoo or conditioner or coffee or anything like that ...
