I love staying at the St. Francis as it is always so romantic! This time was great staying in the graham room, but when we first got there the front staff were arguing. However, the blond manager was amazing and was very helpful. I love the St. Francis we will be back hopefully with a more happy staff.


We love the St. Francis Inn

5 on January 05, 2015

This was our third stay at the St. Francis Inn. The first time was when we were married there. We love it. The staff is so friendly and very helpful. The Inn is off the beaten path but close enough to walk to everything. It is extremely quiet and is the perfect romantic getaway. They have updated some of the rooms and the updates are wonderful. We were worried that when they updated the rooms that some of the historical feel would be lost but they stuck to the historical details while adding modern touches. We will be planning another get away to the St. Francis very soon.

One night stay

3.8 on January 03, 2015

Enjoyed our one night stay at St Francis Inn, met other guest at evening refreshment and also at breakfast. We had the balcony suite which was very nice. Other guests had stayed at this location before this was a good sign of a very satisfied guest. If we were in the area again it would be nice to revisit The St Francis Inn. Staff were very nice.


Fantastic stay!

My husband and I stayed at the St. Francis Inn in December 2014. We love St. Augustine for Christmas. The Nights of Lights are absolutely gorgeous. Anyway, the staff at the Inn are so welcoming, we feel like family. The breakfast buffet, the afternoon social hour and beautiful courtyard at which you can enjoy all of the former make staying at St. Francis Inn relaxing and you'll want to be a repeat customer.
