We always stay at Centennial House when in St Augustine. Rooms are beautiful (especially the ones with the fireplaces) and the innkeepers couldn't be nicer. SO convenient, we can walk to all our favorite restaurants. A+++


We are repeat vistors

The room was excellent. The decorations and attention to detail is much appreciated. The value for the room and location is appropriate, as well. The staff is VERY friendly. The only negatives were there was hair in the bathroom towel (not ours) and the eggs were cold at breakfast. We would stay again. Neither were a deal breaker.


Loved our stay

This was our first time staying in St Augustine...with so many choices of places to stay we were happy with our decision. Parking spot the whole weekend was nice. Walking distance from everything! Only a 5 minute walk to St George street.


Always a Nice Stay

We have stayed here several times over the years, and its always a nice time. That said, the Centennial House is showing its age again, and could stand some sprucing up. Food is fantastic. Location in St. Augustine can't be beat.


Nice place, but some minor things

3.4 on June 24, 2014

We stayed here for two nights. It was a very nice place overall. Clean and the owner/staff was very friendly. The location is awesome for seeing St. Augustine. a short walk to most things. The only complaints we would have is that the TV in the room we stayed (the Palm) was very small for the room (like a 19" flat screen). We don't watch a lot of TV, but like to watch some before going to bed and this was very disappointing. I'd expect at least a 32" for a room the size of where we were. The other is really more of a comment on breakfast. It was good, but they prepare things well in advance and things like the sausage and eggs we're cold and over cooked by the time it was served. But again… not horrible, just not as amazing as we've had in other B&B's.


Great Value!

My wife and I spent our 12th Anniversary here and with only being able to spend one night in St Augustine, this is one of the only B&B's that allowed that. Owners were nice, room was decorated well, though the bed was older and carpet was stained, everything was very clean and the bathoom and shower were large. Great access to historic St Augustine, one block away. Would return.
