Bed and Breakfast

5 on December 18, 2014

Recently we had a four night stay at the St Francis Inn Bed and Breakfast. We have been coming here for special occasions for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. The experience at this Inn is always so rewarding and the staff always makes you feel like "royalty". I cannot say enough about this Inn and tell all our friends that if they stay in St Augustine, there is only one place to stay--The St Francis Inn Bed and Breakfast!!


One Night Getaway

4.6 on December 17, 2014

I stayed at The St. Francis with my fiance for one night on a Thursday. It was such an inviting B&B. Parking was very convenient and free. Check in was quick and friendly and they escorted us to our room. The room was perfect and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the specialty coffee was an added perk. I wish I could have stayed longer but was just passing through to Jacksonville. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!


"I'll BE BACK"

I have visited multiple times with both family and friends. The entire experience only gets better with each visit. will be back again. Not one negative comment , which for me is unheard of! Jean (New York and Daytona beach Shores)


Lovely B&B

4.4 on December 12, 2014

Quaint, cozy rooms in a beautiful old house in a quiet location. Staff are friendly and extremely helpful, and the food is good too!


A True B&B

4.8 on December 01, 2014

This is one of he best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the value for the money is outstanding. Parking is good and the Old Town Trolley stop is only a block away. Parking is expensive and difficult in St Augustine, so let them do the driving. Because we had such a good time, we are already planning a return visit.


Best Bed and Breakfast to Stay in St. Augustine, FL

5 on November 29, 2014

There is no words to describe how wonderful it was to choose such an amazing Bed and Breakfast like the St. Francis. We stayed there for four days and we plan on coming back yearly. We were celebrating our honeymoon and we were treated royally. The ambiance, food, friendliness of the staff, and the central location made the St. Francis the best place to stay when visiting St. Augustine. I look forward to visiting again next year!!!


Great hotel

This hotel is an old building and it has it's quirks as any do. The owners and staff are fantastic. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and at home.


Our weekend in st Augustine

4.2 on November 24, 2014

Harbor 26 was amazing!!! We enjoyed an hour and a half massages. Really nice lady and very friendly. We came over to st Francis for breakfast and it was great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely come back and stay!!!


Our first time

4.0 on November 22, 2014

This is a very quirky b&b, with unique rooms and fabulous hospitality. We stayed in the "Courtyard "room which was charming with a bed that was very comfortable and very high. We have never stayed in a place that gives you a filled sherry decanter with instructions to "Enjoy". The staff are so helpful and there are things to eat and drink constantly available. The St Francis is well situated but quiet. We would certainly stay there again if we visit St Augustine.


Love This Place

Second time staying, but first time in the Cottage. It's like a home away from home. Will definitely stay again
