What a fabulous place to call home while we were in St. Augustine!! The staff was wonderful as was the food and atmosphere. We stayed in the balcony room and it was awesome! Nice spacious room with large Jacuzzi tub and wrap-around private balcony. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in town. The list of additional amenities available is the icing on the cake - you won't be disappointed!


Wish i could move in.

Had a wonderful stay at the cottage at the St. Francis Inn! All the staff is wonderful and we really enjoyed every minute we stayed. The amenities are so plentiful and the guests were so interesting to talk to and spend time with during social hour. Will definitely be back!


We keep going back!

We have been staying at the St. Francis Inn for 8 years, sometimes twice a year. It is such a clean relaxing place that while at times we thing of staying elsewhere, we never do. Kelly the manager and EVERY single one of the staff is always so attentive and when we arrive the welcome is so warm and sincere. They provide you every day with a nice hot breakfast, in the afternoons a social hour (local beers and wines included) and then at night some nice cakes and sweets. The outdoor patio is so relaxing, surrounded by trees and at night there is a patio fireplace that they light up so you can roast marshmallows. All the rooms have different names and if you hang around long enough you WILL here and see... We were just there last week end and will be back for the 4th of July w/e to enjoy their cook out (included with the price of your stay). Oh, and let's not forget about the nice pool. Not seen too many B&B's with pools in St. Augustine! So don't wait any longer and make your reservations. Maybe I'll see you there for the 4th of July! Tony and Myrna.


Charming B&B

4.8 on May 08, 2015

We arrived at the St. Francis Inn and immediately felt relaxed. The staff thought of all amenities that made our stay fantastic. The evening cocktail hour was a great time to mingle with other guest and get more information on things to do in St. Augustine. I have already recommended the St. Francis to several people.


The only place we will stay in St. Augustine

5 on May 07, 2015

We have had 3 stays at St. Francis Inn, and already booked our next stay for Memorial Day Weekend. It truly feels like home when you stay there. The rooms are clean and charming. The food is incredible and fresh. The staff love their jobs and make you feel welcome and comfortable. We won't try another B&B in the area, because we believe we've already discovered the best one!


Lovely historical bed and breakfast

4.6 on May 06, 2015

Our stay was amazing and hope to come back in the nearvruture. Staff was excellent and went out of their way to ensure we had a positive experience. I highly recommend staying at St. Francis Inn.


Favorite B&B

5 on May 05, 2015

One of our favorite B&Bs!! Always very friendly and helpful!


Great location, wonderful ambiance

4.2 on April 26, 2015

Emily's Room, where we stayed, was very nice, and we loved the balcony and jacussi. Only issue was the AC vent above the bed is not ideally located -- made for some chilly nights. The breakfast buffet and the dessert bar where both outstanding. The courtyard plant life made for very pleasant eating.
