St. Francis Inn Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #8 of 30 St. Augustine B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 April 2014

This Inn far exceeded our expectations. Our room was cozy and clean and opened up to a beautiful courtyard. Everyone working there was always friendly and helpful and the food was great! There was always snacks, desserts, and breakfast plus cold or hot drinks available all the time. I fell in love with the sheets on the bed, so I bought a set! The St. Francis Inn is close to everything so we left the car in the secure parking lot and walked everywhere. The resident cat, Zeke, kept us company while we had a glass of wine in the courtyard. Would return here in a heartbeat!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Courtyard room, which has an exterior entrance from the courtyard. It's on the...

We have been coming to the Inn every year since we married back in 2007. It would be hard for me to compare The St. Francis to others as we only stay here. But then again when something works and it is good, why change it! I will start with the Inn Keeper Kelly and her husband Mike the Tool Guy. They are so warm and attentive and always making sure all is well. Nancy in the kitchen keeps kicking out great breakfast. I am sorry to say that I don't remember the rest of the staff's name but I will say they are on the same scale, excellent. They provide you with a nice social hour every day from 500 p.m. to 6 p.m. but if you are a couple of minutes late no sweat. They will still allow you to grab some snacks and a beer. Then later in the night the have what I call "the sweet hour", fresh cookies, cake,etc. Then on Saturday and Sunday mornings the serve Bloody Mary's and Mimosa's. The Courtyard is a fantastic place to enjoy the social hour and/or breakfast. The location is great as there is a nice quiet park across the street and they also provide you with a good parking spot. You can walk to the St. Augustine Plaza in 7 minutes. We are already looking forward to our next trip!!!

Room Tip: We have stayed in 6 different rooms and we like them all. The only advice I van give is that there i...

We have been to St Francis 4 or 5 times now. It is a beautiful, quaint b&b with a staff that just could not be better. They offer a nice breakfast and have a happy hour with snacks in the afternoon, dessert and coffee at night. Cookies along with tea and coffee are available all day. The courtyard is my favorite part. You can sit at a table in the courtyard or on the overlooking balcony above that is open to everyone at the inn (there are private balconies with some rooms; that is different). The old town and the harbor walk are both just a quick walk away. Again, I can't emphasize how nice the staff is.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice. It's just a matter of how much extra space or other features (bathroom e...

This was our second visit to one of the beach properties of the St. Francis Inn. We enjoyed our first visit so much that we stayed longer the second time.We have plans to return next year. We stayed in the Beach Bungalow on Anastasia Island. The Inn provides us with the best of both worlds: being only steps from the ocean and having all the amenities of the Inn available to us. The breakfasts are amazing and varied daily. There is a social hour and in the evening dessert is provided as well. The food is delicious and well prepared. The location of the Inn is perfect being in the historical section of St. Augustine and within walking distance to shops, restaurants and historical sites. Parking is provided to Inn guests.

The staff are exceptional in their friendliness and going out of their way to make your stay the best. We were very impressed with welcoming and warm atmosphere that the staff provides every day not just upon arrival. We felt like the St. Francis Inn is our home away from home.

I highly recommend the st. Francis Inn!!

My husband surprised me by staying here and we both were NOT disappointed! We had the best time with your staff, the snacks and the social hour (I really liked the sangria). You can eat a decent breakfast, a good sized lunch out in the center and eat a light dinner at the Inn and it would be just enough food to last you for the evening. We especially loved the ambiance of the Inn and our room (Marie's) which was in the perfect spot. My husband and I were planning on going to Ireland for our 15th Anniversary but we had to move our family so that trip is put in hold for now. Staying at the Inn was THE BEST compromise! Thank you to all the staff, you truly have a gem!

From the moment we walked in until the moment we checked out, comfort and service abound. This is so much more than a bed and breakfast. It is a culinary experience. From the afternoon happy hour with San Sebastian wines and homemade appetizers to the dessert hour to the delicious breakfast, St. Francis is sure to please. Add in the convenience of complimentary parking and the centralized location where you can walk to all of the sights in the historic district and you have a recipe for perfection. The staff was courteous and helpful and the rooms were very comfortable.

Our first visit to lovely St. Augustine was made even more enjoyable by staying at the St. Francis Inn. The staff was hospitable and very accommodating. The food at breakfast, the social hour, and dessert was homemade and delicious while the setting afforded us the opportunity to connect with other guests. The location, on a narrow cobblestone street at the edge of the historic district, was quiet but also within easy walking distance of the harbor and the center of town. The beach house was a real bonus with its parking, beach chairs and towels as well as a bathroom with a shower and easy beach access. We stayed in Miss Emilie's room on the second floor of the Wilson House. The room was comfortable, quiet, well appointed and bright with a
large bathroom. We would
definitely stay there again. David & Debbie Killory, Plymouth, MA.
