Lovely place, GREAT staff

Old City House is still, as the owner admitted, a work in progress and there are little repairs (e.g. paint touch-ups) that need to be completed. We booked the smallest room and it was sweet but dark. The restaurant is the BEST! And the included breakfasts were ample enough to hold us till dinner. The staff was friendly, cheerful and always helpful. A little gem.


Dog Friendly and the Innkeepers are perfection. #bassethoundtown

My Mom, basset hound (Daisy Lynn) and I stayed in 2 rooms. Daisy Lynn and I had the Augustin and my Mom had the Cordova. They are both dog friendly but I picked the Augustin because it is on the first floor and made it very easy to walk across the street to a large patch of grass on the side of the Lightner museum. My Mom's room was at the top of a steep flight of steps so make sure you can climb stairs because there is no elevator. The ACs in both rooms were top notch. There is a dog friendly outside dining area that is stunning and Juan and Christopher tend to the gardens which are breathtaking. The complimentary wine and cheese happy hour is a delight. We did not eat dinner at the Inn but it does get rave reviews. Breakfast is not until 9:00. We were served each morning by the Innkeeper Christopher. In our entire month on the road we never reached the level of breakfast that was served at the Old City Inn. Daisy Lynn, my basset hound was even served water in a silver bowl and a platter of bacon. Yes, a platter!!! Saint Augustine seems to be a very dog friendly city and the Old City Inn is authentic and near everything. We parked the car and never used it again. Thank you Juan and Christopher for loving this Inn so much. As guests, we could feel how special this place is. We will be back to enjoy more of the enchanting hospitality...Love Cat, Hilda and Daisy Lynn Rudert #bassethoundtown


Wonderful Lodging and Fabulous Food

Juan makes guests feel welcome and appreciated from check in to check out. Room was light and airy with old-world appointments; spacious with an extremely comfortable bed. Verandas with picturesque views of greenery, orchids and hibiscus. The cozy dining room was the perfect backdrop for an ice-cold martini, savory bread with rich toppings and expertly prepared pasta carbonara.

Great location in Old Town St. Augustine. Can walk to anywhere in town including the fort. And have free parking. Restaurant is outstanding - excellent presentation and great entrees. The wine and cheese at end of day is really nice. Would stay there again. Hosts are really great - great service.


Would visit again!

Found this place very accommodating, clean and friendly. Will stay here again next time in St. Augustine. Location was very good. Breakfast was prefect - thought we were in Europe!


Great Experience!

Our stay at Old City House was lovely!! Easy and quick check-in, perfect location downtown, especially during Nights of Lights. I didn't even realize our room (the Lightner) had a balcony and perfect side view of the college and lights in the Lightner Museum front. Our breakfast was outstanding. Multi- course, filling but not heavy, fresh, flavorful and delicious. And while they usually serve in dining room, they were so nice to accommodate us to let us sit on the outside patio. The weather was perfect and we live up north so we were glad to enjoy some warm fresh air, a nice break from our midwest winter! I wish we had more time there, would love to have taken advantage of the bicycles. We will definitely be back. Thank you!


Love the afternoon wine and cheese plate.
