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.

Husband and I like to go to St. Augustine several times a year for short getaways but we especially love it around the holidays. We typically stay in different BedandBreakfast but I think we found our favorite. The inn is so centrally located. Parking is easy and free...amazing for the location. Are stay was the St. George suite. The room is large and well appointed with amazing accessories. Plenty of room to store clothing and a huge jacuzzi tub, but well set off in the corner to not break the line of "old world feel". The bathroom has a huge walk-in shower and counter space for toiletries. The breakfast is all you could ask for and the wine and cheese social is wonderful. We did not have time to eat in the restaurant but it has a full bar and a nice wine list and was full every night. The outside patio was comfortable and convenient. The owners and the staff was fantastic and our bartender was so very interesting and interactive. My husband and I both agreed that we would be hard pressed to say anywhere else while we visit one of our favorite towns.


Excellent stay, excellent location

We spent three nights at Old City House. We had a wonderful stay and will return. The inn is set in a fantastic location in the old section of the city, and many attractions and restaurants are within walking distance. There is parking on site. The room we had was a good size, clean and fit our needs. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Because the inn also has a full service restaurant, the morning breakfast, and evening wine and cheese were a cut above. We also took the opportunity to have one of our dinners at the inn while we were there and it too was very good. So even if you don't stay there the restaurant is worth a try.


Perfect wedding and reception stay!

We stayed in the St. George room - it was luxurious and comfortable. Our small reception dinner was held in the restaurant and the staff was amazing , courtesy, and accommodating for our guests and wedding cake. I would highly recommend The Old City House Inn for your getaway or event!
