We rented the cottage at this B&B...What a sweet little house. We came to St. Augustine with another couple for a two day visit. Very pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really delicious. Will definitely consider staying here again on a trip to St. Augustine in the future.

Very romantic and full of charm! The staff was all very sweet, and went above and beyond for our stay. We visited for my husbands birthday, and they placed a bottle of champagne with a sweet note. Very nice touch!


Birthday Getaway

4.4 on February 03, 2016

The St Francis Inn is a wonderful place for a quiet getaway in an amazing historical city. The Inn is like stepping back in time. The staff are very helpful an friendly to their guests. The breakfast fare is delicious, and you can make your own Mimosas' or Bloody Mary with locally distilled Vodka. The afternoon social hour and evening dessert hour are both wonderful. Again, locally brewed beer and wines are available to sample as well as wonder snacks and desserts. Located on historic St George Street, you are minutes away walking distance to shops, restaurants and tourist sites alike. Highly recommend you try this B & B & St Augustine as well.


Your Staff is outstanding

4.4 on January 29, 2016

The Saint Francis continues to be the place for us. The primary asset you have is your staff. We have gotten to know most of them and come to regard them as friends. That is because, in addition to being fine Innkeepers, they are wonderful people.


Birthday stay!
