Amazing Experience in Every Way

4.8 on July 25, 2014

I am going to start by saying that I had never stayed in a Bed & Breakfast before I went to St. Francis Inn. I always thought that it was not my style, and it was reserved for an older crowd. However, after visiting St. Francis Inn, my view changed completely. I had the most lovely experience. The service was friendly and helpful. The food was out of this world delicious and healthy.The room was clean, comfortable, and very beautiful. I am still remember every moment I spend at St. Francis even weeks after I returned. I had an unforgettable vacation at St, Augustine and the biggest part of that was thanks to St. Francis Inn.


St Francis Inn, St Augustine

4.0 on July 21, 2014

We stayed for four nights in Miss Lily's room at the St Francis Inn. The room and bathroom were very small and tight. My husband and I were frequently bumping into each other! However, the history of the inn was fascinating, service and amenities were good, and breakfasts were excellent. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.


Really nice place

5 on July 21, 2014

Our visit at St. Francis Inn was very nice. Really great and memorable breakfast. The room "The Courtyard Room" is not the biggest, but it is very comfortable and cozy.


Wonderfully amazing

5 on July 19, 2014

So the boyfriend and I came for our 1 year anniversary...this place is phenomenal...staff super friendly....didn't have to ask for anything....they were expecting us when we first got there and everything was ready...took us to our room and explained everything....the Garcia suite was fantastic....loved the quilt...everything was provided. Breakfast was great. Missed breakfast one day but they offered to still let us eat...check in and out was a breeze. Totally amazing place. Will definitely return and stay here again.!!!! I recommend this place for anyone..totally worth it


Mother / Daughter weekend

4.4 on July 16, 2014

My 15-year-old daughter and I stayed here for our first ever B&B experience, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Each staff person we met was super nice, the breakfasts were great, and the evening s'mores in the courtyard were a great way to end each busy day. Our room was very clean and pleasant, and the bed was comfy. We stayed here because of the ghost tales, but did not experience anything ghostly--which was probably for the best after all. I would love to go back!


What a cozy place

4.8 on July 15, 2014

Only stayed one night, but what a nice quiet place. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Courtyard sitting area is a nice place to relax and have a drink. We will definitely be coming back.

Anniversary getaway

4.4 on July 11, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the St. Francis to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were really large and comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to St Augustine and the St Francis and will most likely stay there again.
