Home away from home

5 on October 21, 2014

Food is great, hosts are so nice and friendly . The afternoon social is so fun. Enough to do for everyone!


Love this Bed and Breakfast

4.6 on October 18, 2014

I first stayed at the St. Francis almost 5 years ago. Since then I've stayed at lest once a year if not more. It's not just a place for couples. I have brought my mom and a girlfriend as well as my boyfriend and they have all loved it. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help you. The parking, social hour, dessert hour and breakfast are all included. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in St. Augustine.


We will be coming back!!

5 on October 16, 2014

Great place to stay, and in walking distance of shopping.


Our stay at The Beach Bungalow

5 on October 16, 2014

We totally enjoyed everything about our stay! The breakfasts at the Inn were exceptional, as was the service. The beach was gorgeous, and the weather was perfect for our entire vacation! If you want to learn about the history of St. Augustine, be sure to take the trolley. Tickets are available for purchase at the Inn, and are good for 3 consecutive days. A great way to see the city!


Love!

Absolutely love this place, friendly staff. good food and accommodations. cute cat. Had a dream time here. Cant wait to go back! Close walking distance to great spots. Private beach is wonderful!


Great stay at St. Francis Inn

4.2 on September 24, 2014

We only stayed 1 night at the Inn, but it was one awesome night. The rooms were big, the bed was amazingly comfortable, and the whirlpool tub in the room was relaxing. We wish we could have stayed more than one night, but I will say we are going back the first chance we get.


Amazing Inn

5 on September 16, 2014

This was our 3rd stay at this Inn, never disappointed! Loved sitting out on our private balcony and enjoying soaking up the rich history of this beautiful inn. The staff were friendly, knowledgable, enjoyed the amenities they have to offer, from the swimming pool , bicycles, and gourmet breakfasts, truly our favorite getaway!


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.
