A few days with friends

5 on April 15, 2018

We stayed the last a couple of days in March. We brought our friends. We had the two upper rooms in the secret garden. We had a great time and everything was perfect!!!


One Night

4.2 on April 14, 2018

We truly enjoyed our night at the Casablanca Inn. The room was beautiful. The little porch was truly inviting. There was some construction going on in the back so we did have to walk around tools and construction materials to get to our room, but it was ok. The bed was one of those number beds and for some reason it wasn't working on my husband's side, but we think maybe it was us. The staff was so friendly and everything was taken care of to the littlest detail. Thank you Casablanca Inn. The martinis as night were delicious and breakfast was very nice.


Evening at the inn

4.6 on April 14, 2018

We loved our stay at the Inn. Convenience being foremost on the list. It is located centrally so you can just close your door and wander off. We were on the ground floor and loved it. Our neighbors at the inn had stayed many imes and said they preferred the second floor due to less late evening noise. It wasn’t a problem outside traffic ( walkers and vehicles) tapered off toward late evening. The Martini Bar? Loved it. We took our drinks back out to the porch and people watched. Breakfast was more than adequate. The room was very comfortable and everyone was helpful and kind. We would definitely stay again but only if we had back, ground level room again!


Elegant and comfortable Room

4.2 on April 11, 2018

We recently stayed at the Casa Blanca Inn. The guest room was elegantly furnished. The bedings were top notch. Our room was very quiet. Kitchen staff was a little slow but when the food arrived it was always delicious. We would stay here again.


The Secret Garden

2.6 on April 09, 2018

Our room at the Casablanca Inn wasn't a part of the main building, but in a separate building called "The Secret Garden". The staff was friendly and the room comfortable enough. Parking was in a small, unmarked dirt lot behind the building; the entrance to the building from the parking lot was through a run-down, unpaved hallway next to the custodian's storage and cleaning area. The room (a suite with a bedroom, a sitting room, and a kitchen) had two televisions; the one in the bedroom did not work properly; requested repairs to the television never happened. The window to the sitting room did not close properly. The room is comfortable enough, but gaudy; addressing issues of the state of the room's disrepair (holes in walls; curtain rods that don't fit windows, mismatched paint or unpainted sections of wall) would go a long way. We visit St. Augustine often and would stay again, but it wouldn't be our first choice.


Great walking location

3.4 on April 05, 2018

Coach house rooms were pretty cool with their porches on the street. Brunch, and the Tiny Martini bar were fun, convenient, and priced well. Loved the location, and walking proximity to everything. Dined at several nice restaurant's within a blocks walk. Great view of the water out front as well. Only downside was some construction underway, and a strange construction worker making cat calls at my wife. Otherwise a great time. Take the trolley tour...very informational.


Great place!!!

4.4 on April 04, 2018

We were very pleased with our rooms! My only complaint on the room was it never got dark! We had trouble sleeping because of the light coming in from all sides! We kept thinking it was time to get up and it would be one two three in the morning.. It was hard to sleep... We loved the balcony and used it the most! Our sunrise was beautiful! The room was darling! The bathroom was huge. They just need to put curtains over the Windows on the doors so you could sleep in the dark!


Not worth the price.

3.0 on April 02, 2018

I was looking for location, but didn't realize that our room would be overlooking the main waling/parking route to the tourist district. That is on me. However, here is a list of why I won't stay here again: 1) location to the street noise. 2) AC thermostat on wall, but only window unit worked. 3) Window unit right next to head on bed 2. Can't close shutters with unit on, so you choose... cool room, bright street lights and noise. 4) They have a large sign out front that says "Brunch", but they ran out of eggs, blueberries and ham. They only have 10 things on their menu, but ran out of ingredients for 7 of them. 5) Receptionist was not over excited to see me check in, or interrupt her 9AM cake meal for the one question I had about the wall thermostat not working. 6) Bed was terrible. If I were a 17th century traveler, and all I expected was to not get rained on, have enough to eat not to starve, and not be killed by a Seminole raid, then this place would be great. POSITIVES: Servers and bar tenders were great! Even with the nightmare they had to deal with of running out of food at a restaurant, they were calm, provided solutions, and joked around with all the guests to lighten the mood. Well done staff!!!


First time at Casablanca

4.0 on April 02, 2018

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Casablanca Inn and enjoyed our accommodations. We stayed in room 16 which was right on Charleston Street and a convenient walk to absolutely everything. It was also a great place to people watch right from the front porch. The restaurant had slow service and the food was just okay but the martinis were delicious. Overall, I would definitely stay here again next time I am in St. Augustine.


Recent Stay

4.4 on April 02, 2018

We stayed here for 2 nights over St. Patrick's Day weekend and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Although we were put in a room that isn't featured on the website (in the Secret Garden), the room itself was quaint with a very comfortable bed and a nice little deck to sit outside on and enjoy a cocktail. The hotel itself is perfectly situated within walking distance of many attractions, shops and restaurants. The brunch was delicious, and the martinis at the bar were great too.
