“Best B&B Experience Ever”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

We had a blast at the Inn on Charlotte. My husband and I, my mother-in-law, and another couple all spent three nights there on our first visit to St. Augustine. None of us are frequent B&B travelers, but our experience at the Inn on Charlotte made us all want to make a return trip soon.

The rooms are all perfectly appointed, with beautiful period furniture, but with all the modern conveniences of a luxury hotel. The bathrooms are immaculate and the staff keeps them maintained above-and-beyond what you might expect.

Rodney's two-course gourmet breakfasts were the ultimate vacation treat. When the food was served, you could hear the click of cameras as we all couldn't resist taking photos of the Belgian waffles, frittata, honeydew melon soup, strata, or warm, homemade breads.

Rodney and Jerry hold the best happy hour in St. Augustine right on their front porch. They are generous and gracious hosts, and make everyone feel that they are the most important guests.

These innkeepers are part of the tightly knit community of St. Augustine business owners. As guests, we were able to purchase tour tickets directly from the inn. Their recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing were all fantastic. Everything we wanted to do in St. Augustine was within walking distance of the inn. We never once had to get our car out of the parking lot. The location could not have been more convenient.

At this B&B, we were given the warmest welcome, and made to feel like we were very special guests. Can't wait to go back!

And we really enjoyed meeting you guys too, what wonderful folks you all are! We had a great time getting to know you guys, and the other guests.

Except of course for February, or April, and May... :) We hope to see all of you guys again soon!
P.S. Tell mom we said hello, and it was a pleasure meeting her.

The Inn on Charlotte is a lovely bed and breakfast. It is perfectly located, near town with access to St Augustine sights. The inn is exceptionally clean and well kept, very neat and nicely decorated without being too fussy. The Mary Lily room was just right for a weekend stay. The innkeeper does not live at the inn so there is no one there after 6pm, so evening refreshments are limited. (this is the reason I rated service as only average.) I would have liked to have coffee and tea available in the evening. There is a small frige with water, iced tea and lemonade available all day and evening but I would have liked it if hot drinks were also offered. The breakfast was delicious (french toast, served with honey syrup and nuts) but only one selection is offered so if you do not like that one item you are out of luck. They did ask if there were any dietary restrictions so I guess if you had a specific request it would have been honored.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mary Lily room which we thought was great. It was a good size, not big but ok for a...

Thank you for choosing the Inn on Charlotte and your thoughtful review. We see each and every review as a gift from our guests. We have the coffee station set-up ready to serve all day long, and are happy to serve on request, but we did not have that posted. So now we have created a sign letting guests know they only have to ask for fresh coffee (or hot water) any time of the day.

Again, thank you!
Yours,

My husband and I have never stayed at a B&B before but when we booked a trip to St. Augustine for our anniversary celebration, we decided to use TripAdvisor to help us select one. We're so glad we decided to stay at The Inn on Charlotte! The hospitality was wonderful and we felt welcome immediately upon entering the front door. Social hour was a lot of fun and we had the best breakfast each morning, prepared by Rod! The innkeepers always had great recommendations on things to do, restaurants to eat at and other tips. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the house was gorgeous and very well maintained. We'll definitely be back!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Audubon room which is located on the 2nd floor. It was clean, spacious, comfortable...

The Inn On Charlotte is the total package. The Inn is a charming example of St Augustine's rich history and the hosts/staff are outstanding. RaeAnn and Ann took care of us while Rod and Jerry were off and they add such character to the experience. The breakfast was perfectly prepared and presented and we were made to feel as if we were the best guests that had ever crossed the threshold . Our only regret is that we didn't copy down the family recipe for Brunswick Stew that's posted on the dining room wall!

We had a wonderful weekend with Rodney and staff. The inn is gorgeous, the location is very convenient, the 2nd floor hide-away room was very comfortable and cozy. Rodney's Eggs Benedict Casserole was delicious. It was a wonderful weekend! We hope to return for another visit :-)

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our two carriage house rooms, Anna Marcotte's Hideaway and Marjorie K. Rawlings' Bungalow, are just steps behind the Inn and offer very private accommodations.

We look forward to your next visit with us.
