I love Casablanca Inn!

5 on April 28, 2015

The view is breathtaking! The service is great! The food was delicious! I look forward to going to Casablanca Inn every year. I enjoy having mimosas while looking at the bay in the morning and a delicious martini on the porch at night.


Honeymoon visit...okay...

3.8 on February 24, 2014

My husband and I decided to go back to the Casablanca Inn after visiting one year for one of our anniversaries. Our first experience there was wonderful. The breakfast was outstanding, someone actually took our order, unlike our second visit, which was more continental style (disappointing indeed, there was no variety). Our biggest complaint is that we decided for our honeymoon we would rent room #7, there most expensive room. What drew my husband to this room (and this is no joke) was that the image showed that there was a heart shaped bathtub. He seriously had his heart set on this bathtub as he always said we would find a place with one. Once we arrived we realized that they changed the room. The room was really nice, it seemed to have been updated. However, our last visit there was in a very nice room as well and it was over $100 cheaper... My point is, we would have chosen another, much more affordable room had we known there was no heart shaped bathtub. Overall I recommend this place, I would just like to say that they need to update there website's room photos so you know exactly what you are paying for!!!


Just OK

3.8 on February 05, 2014

Nice room but couldn't get the air conditioner to work which caused a restless night. Room 19 was noisy from traffic on back street. Parking is about a block away from hotel in the corner of a parking lot on gravel. Tight spots when you're driving a large truck. And you have to drive down the small tight streets - little stressful. Breakfast was just ok. They did not have everything out at 8:15. Had to ask for milk & glasses. Outside sitting area is on street and is noisy. There was a table we could have sat at in the dinning area but it had cardboard boxes on it. Next time we look for a B&B away from the main area.


Great Location B & B

2.2 on December 07, 2013

If just want a breathtaking view ; this is the place to stay. The Casablanca Inn is centrally located. The evening bar is great however, they serve only drinks and I noticed many customers asking for appetizers. The service was exceptional and wait staff very friendly. The innkeepers are not on location and you can tell. The cleanliness of the room was not acceptable and the linens were worn and I wasn't sure the sheets were clean. The room pictured was not in the same condition. The bedding was less than desirable. I slept on the chair and didn't shower. We will return to St. Augustine, however, not to the Casablanca.


First Time Here

4.0 on November 15, 2013

My husband and I stayed here back in August. The staff was friendly and helpful. We loved our room and the martini bar was fun. Loved the breakfast and the morning staff. We have booked our stay for December a little X-mas gift to ourselves.


Birthday and Breakfast

5 on October 05, 2013

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of staying here the night of my birthday on our way to Fort Lauderdale. The check-in was gracious, simple, and informative. We only had a few hours of daylight to take in the sights, but we were able to see a good portion of the city because of the recommendations from the front desk. Sleeping was wonderful and the breakfast right outside of our door was so perfect. The views during breakfast were well worth the entire price of the stay. We can not wait to come back.


Wonderful

5 on October 01, 2013

This was the first time staying at Casablanca the staff were excellent even in the bar willing to do anything we needed. We had not planned on staying we were having a drink and inquired about rooms we decided to stay with only the clothes we wore but Amanda the desk clerk was so special to give us bathroom essentials and snacks for my husband who is diabetic the breakfast was great and the staff again was great we will stay again thanks to the whole staff the chef even came out and asked if everything was ok the room was romantic we would of liked front balcony but wasn't available. Again thank you so much Dave and Debbie Rich Ocala fl


Bayfront views from upper room porch unequaled.

3.2 on September 21, 2013

Back on my 72nd Birthday (5/19/12) we had Room 8 for several days with a beautiful 2nd floor Bay View of boats coming & going while relaxing in the nice big bed, without leaving it while sipping cool drink from mini-bar. So, while in St Augustine again to see Brian Wilson & Band on 10/3/13 for live concert we've reserved the other upstairs Bay View room (#10) with 1940's large porch off room so to enjoy it all again..from tasty drink on lower front porch bar to that really delicious breakfast. Life is Good at any age if you stay at Casablanca Inn!


Fabulous little B&B on the bay front

4.0 on August 17, 2013

Love this B&B for a romantic getaway. Upon arriving we were greeted with a attentive staff. Can not get enough of the patio seating, in my opinion some of the best seating in st.augustine's bay front! Rooms are cozy and intimate. My only problem with our last few visits is the male bartenders seem to have a attitude, they certainly do not make you feel welcome in the bar area.


Romantic Getaway!

5 on July 10, 2013

My husband and I have been a guest at this historic bed and breakfast going on 6 years in a row. I look forward to this getaway every year. The rooms are old, the house is old. If you like that charm you will love this place. The breakfast is great! I enjoy the mimosa in the morning. The afternoon snacks have been really good, but it depends on the day. We love sitting in the Tini Martini Bar over looking the bay while enjoying a drink. If you want brand new contemporary room, this is probably not the place for you. If you like historic looking homes (not in perfect condition), wonderful food, great drinks and an amazing view, this is the B&B for you.
