We loved the St. Francis Inn and all of the "extras" that came with it. Slightly pricey with the renovations but all and all we were very pleased!

This was our 2nd stay. They were in the middle of repairing damage caused by Hurricane Matthew and still went above and beyond to make it a wonderful stay. History, comfort and hospitality in one package.

We had a beautiful New Year's weekend at the St. Francis Inn celebrating our 20th anniversary. Great, quiet location to walk throughout historic downtown.

Me and my husband stayed here for our honeymoon. It was great! The rooms are a bit dated and the couch needs to be replaced but it was spacious and clean and romantic. Plenty of room in the "Overlook Suite" to enjoy. Big soaking tub with jets and a nice shower. The Inn is beautiful. It was under construction when we were there so I cannot fairly grade it. But what I saw of it was quaint, historic and cozy. The staff is friendly. The breakfast is phenomenal. We would go back. They have a beach residence you can take advantage of as well. It is off the beaten path a bit, which we liked as it was more quiet. And it is by no means too off the path ... maybe three blocks from the historic district.

Rooms are comfortable, staff is top notch, a gentleman fixed a plumbing issue quickly, breakfast is always delicious. Even though they are still recovering from Hurricane Matthew, they are still, in my opinion, the only place we will stay in St. Augustine!

This was the second time I stayed at the St. Francis. Different room this time, but at Christmas & this room (Elizabeth's Suite) was much smaller than the Saffron Suite I stayed in over Thanksgiving. Both very unique in their own way. Would recommend Elizabeth's for a couple, Saffron if you're sharing with friend(s). Staff did an outstanding job considering the challenges of recovering from Hurricane Matthew. Glad to see they were full over the holiday. I am looking forward to many stays in the future and to see it completely restored & back to normal after the hurricane re-do!

Can't say enough about our stay at St. Francis Inn, staff is fantastic, rooms are clean and welcoming. Within walking distance to downtown and all the attractions. We have stayed here several times and have thoroughly enjoyed each stay. Each room has its own feel and ambiance, no two rooms are alike, its a delight. We highly recommend, if you are visiting St. Augustine, to book your stay at the St. Francis Inn, you will not be disappointed.

My one night stay was absolutely fantastic. The staff is very friendly and assisted me with any needs. The breakfast and other food was delicious. I loved the complementary bikes to explore the historic town and the heated swimming pool was so relaxing. And guests have access to the beach house parking and beach chairs etc with an easy walk to the beach and parking. While there is construction going on due to damage from Hurricane Matthew, the Inn does everything to keep any disturbance at a minimum. I will stay there on my return trip. I highly recommend St. Francis Inn.

We liked the St Francis in almost every way. We had 2 rooms, very comfortable with ceiling fans, an ingenious but very functional bathroom and easy access. St Augustine is a walkabout place, though with tourist trolleys creeping everywhere -- a bit annoying, really. No b&b can guarantee the character of the guests, and we found our "happy hour" (very good wine) disturbed by one who evidently felt an irresistible urge to lecture, loudly, to his fellow guests. Oh well, chalk it up to experience, or life, or something. We adjourned to dinner down the street.
