St. Francis Inn Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #8 of 30 St. Augustine B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Regular business trips to St. Augustine became more than tolerable when St. Francis Inn became my sole lodging choice (near 40 nights now). Not only are all the rooms well-appointed with antiques and the breakfasts/happy hours are outstanding, but the owner (Joe) and staff are what separates this retreat from any other B&B; it's like coming home to family. Once you've experienced their hospitality and genuine warmth from check-in to final goodbyes, you too will return. As for me, there is no other place to lodge in the Ancient City. See you next time!

The location just a little outside the main area makes it a very quiet place. You can walk easily to the harbor or to the center of the city with all the attractions. The pool is small but nice. The breakfast is very personal so is the socializing hour every afternoon from 5 to 6.

Wonderful old inn yet with all modern needs met. It's secluded and quiet with a lovely courtyard, balconies and with a pool too for a dip. Staff were friendly and accomodating.Excellent service. Easy walk into the restaurant area ( we liked Cellar 6) and loads to explore on foot. Great area for a morning run too around the Old Town streets and seafront. Couldn't have chosen better accomodation. Would love to go back.

We stayed here for a 5 night stay and loved it!! It is ideally located to visit historic St. Augustine. The Overlook Room is gorgeous and had a great view. Every morning breakfast was different and delicious! The daily Social Hour came with snacks and wine from the local winery. The staff was friendly and helpful. There's use of a beach house nearby also, which lead to a somewhat private beach. Great spot to take a shower after visiting the beach and always have parking near the beach.
Love it!! Will definitely visit again!

My husband surprised me with a one night getaway for our 10 year anniversary this weekend. He would not tell me where we were going until we arrived in St. Augustine. We drove up to St. Francis Inn and I was so excited that we were staying there. We have been talking about do a trip like this for years. The check-in process was smooth and the lady at the counter was very nice as she showed us to our room. There was champagne waiting for us as well as a comfortable queen bed and a jacuzzi tub for two. We got ready for our evening out in Old St. Augustine, which the night life really is very pleasant. Great restaurants and bars. In the morning I received yet another surprise, my husband had arranged for us to have breakfast in bed. The food was delicious and it was so nice to have our breakfast brought to us. After breakfast we decided to do some exploring and used the bikes provided by the inn. I'm only 5 feet tall and was nervous they would not have a bike for me, but I managed to choose the perfect bike. I look forward to staying here again for our next anniversary and many more to come. It was a truly romantic weekend.

We would definitely come back.

Parking was across the inn and provided lot of space, that also included a bench under a tree. Room is as advertise, homey feeling. We did not hear any outside noise. Since we made our reservation via this site we had free choc covered strawberries (10pcs i thinks & they were huge and very sweet) + bottle of champagne. Social hour was also enjoyable, the crab dip was awesome and wine was abundant. There was also a garden firepit where you can make smores and these are provided in ready made bag. We also enjoyed the swing on the terrace for drinking wine/coffee in the morning.
Breakfast changes daily, it was buffet style but not like others, it was more like a gourmet buffet. Drinks are available 24 hours plus our room had port with free refill.

Had originally booked the Garden Room, not realizing it was on the 2nd floor. Linda @ the front desk quickly moved us to Margaret's Room which was perfect for us and the pup. He even had a welcome sign with a bag of treats. Breakfast was delicious, wonderful happy hour. I highly recommend.
