Great place to stay!

5 on September 12, 2014

First time in the city. A friend told us where she stayed and liked it so that is where we stayed.


St. Francis in August

4.4 on September 07, 2014

We stayed in the Courtyard Room which is the first room as you are entering the property. The room is small, but charming, however the bathroom is so small the sink is located in the room itself. However, there are so many positives to this inn that the few negatives are negligible. The breakfasts are wonderful and the staff friendly and efficient. Also, the trolley stop is approximately one block from the inn so that is convenience. Or if you like to walk, downtown is within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again.


OUTSTANDING ALL THE WAY AROUND!!!!!!!

5 on September 05, 2014

From Steve and Vicki on our 25th Ann Trip....You can't go wrong if you stay at St Francis. The staff is exceptional in everyway, the rooms at the Inn and the Beach Bungalow where we stayed are outstanding. The nightly gatherings of desserts and social hours was amazing and the free parking and the 2 block walk to downtown was a plus that can't be measured. The staff gave information that without we would have been lost and the Trolly stop just around the corner gave us the entire town's view and history, don't skip it. St. Francis is a hidden gem.


Great Time

4.8 on September 01, 2014

We stayed 3 nights.Everything was out standing. If I am back in St. AUGUSTINE I will stay their again. It was very close to the wedding we attend.


Very inviting well serviced B&B

4.4 on August 31, 2014

Completely enjoyed our stay. We will stay again if we ever return to the St Augustine area.


Spoiled, and I like it!

My St. Francis stay

5 on August 27, 2014

Wonderful staff and location.


Back again to St. Francis

4.6 on August 21, 2014

This is our second stay at St. Francis. Initial time was 5 years ago for our honeymoon and we stayed in the house across from the Inn. This time we stayed at the Beach Bungalow. The place is still fantastic! We often stay at B&Bs, and we really love St. Francis. The way they do their breakfast (buffet style for several hours) is the best and works awesome with a vacation scheduled (aka no set schedule). Their food is always my favorite, and I cannot get enough of their yogurt granola parfaits. The coffee quality exceeds other places we have stayed. Staff is extremely friendly. The beach bungalow bed was not as comfortable as the bed in the house, but worked out okay. It didn't have a lot of natural light, but since we had good weather we were outside most of the time. If it was rainy and there for an extended period, it would not be as great of a choice. Great location to beach and within walking distance of putt-putt, ice cream, and the best taco place in the world. The beach chairs and water provided were great. We would have liked an umbrella also for beach use, since they are hard to travel on a plane with & my husband is fair skinned. Other than that we would recommend and likely to stay again.


Wonderful getaway
