Great local...within walking distance of many sightseeing spots. The owners, Bob and Suzanne very gracious and they serve a phenomenal breakfast! Lots of areas to lounge about and relax.


Old Powder House Inn -awesome place!

5 on July 09, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old Powder House Inn. Bob and Suzanne were extremely hospitable and would strongly recommend the inn to all my friends.


Great B & B Inn to visit!!!

We love this B & B Inn! The Old Powder House Inn is a great place to visit. Great breakfast. Bob & Suzanne are a great host. Great location.


Fantastic Experience

4.8 on June 19, 2014

You couldn't have better hosts than Bob and Suzanne....from their commitment to meeting all of the needs of their guests, to creating a warm and inviting atmosphere, to helping arrange tours and other successful experiences this trip has been GREAT!!! The Old Powder House Is a first class place to stay, close to everything and totally enjoyable....other guests were fun and creative....loved it!!!


Great Location

4.2 on June 19, 2014

Great location to walk to most all restaurants and shops. Innkeepers were extremely friendly. Street level rooms on front porch were too noisy for our taste. The Victoria Rose room needs central air-conditioning. Window unit is old and noisy. We loved the breakfasts!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your input. We appreciate your comments. We are constantly striving to improve our property and our guest experience. The A/C unit is on our repair list and will be replaced shortly. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do about street noise. (Except mask the noise with an air conditioner...LOL) We do hope you will come back to visit again and experience the ever-improving OPH.


One of our best visits to St. Augustine

4.2 on June 11, 2014

Just about every aspect of our stay at your Inn was way above average. I will recommend your Inn to anyone who we know will visit St. Augustine. If I return in the next few years, you will be the place I book. Thanks to all the staff who help make it that way.


A home away from home in a place that took us out of our every day world

4.8 on June 05, 2014

The owner hostess greeted us at the door with a huge warm welcome and did the same each morning. We could always count on hot coffee being out in the parlour promptly at 7:30 am along with tea. In the afternoon would be waiting wine for us to partake in while sitting out on the porch. The bed room was beautiful airy with 3 windows and a modern private bath. The bed was even special. The perfect B and B to escape to for a long weekend.


Outstanding

Had a wonderful time . Bob and Suzanne are very friendly and make you feel welcomed . They had good recommendations and very knowledgable on things to do. Every morning a delicious breakfast was served and was like starting each day with a party. Will definitely stay here again . Not one negative thing to say.


Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on May 27, 2014

Our stay at Old Powder House Inn is one that I will not forget anytime soon. This inn had everything that I love all wrapped up in the room we stayed in. My husband and I felt like we were part of the family Bob and Suzanne were great and we have been to many B&B but the service and treatment were far more then I expected. I loved it so much that I am returning with our daughter for a girl's weekend and I cannot wait.


Old Power House Inn Is Great!

4.0 on May 23, 2014

We asked for and were granted an early check-in which was very convenient and appreciated. Bob prepared a wonderful breakfast and we enjoyed the conversation that followed...we are both gearheads. The room was nice but did face the construction across the street which should be complete soon. A nicely kept Inn close to downtown and many fine restaurants. On site parking was a huge plus. Bev and Dennis
