The Basics


The St. Francis Inn, built in 1791, is an oasis. Guests easily walk to everything St Augustine offers and then return to the B&B to relax. Some of our 19 unique rooms have fireplaces, balconies, and jetted tubs, all featuring antique furniture and modern comforts. The grounds include a heated pool, four-season gardens, and a walled courtyard. Guests return year after year for the friendly staff, generous amenities, and scrumptious food.

Stay for the Story

The inn was built in 1791 as a family home, but it’s been an inn since 1845. You’ll see our origins wherever you look. Walking through you’ll find exposed beams and period furniture. St Augustine loves its history. As its oldest inn, we fit right in.

Guest Reviews

We booked via st Francis inn but stayed at Camachee. Both places were excellent and when we are no longer broke students and make some more money we are definitely coming to stay at this place! What I can speak for is the delicious homemade breakfasts and the location! The location feels like a paradise oasis, far away enough from the heart of town to feel more romantic but...See More

My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary here and the stay was lovely. The Saffron suite is amazing. The amenities were worth it. Great coffee, delicious snacks, breakfast was delicious. The location was awesome as well. Only a 10-15 minute walk to everything in historic downtown.

This Inn was beyond beautiful and amazing. My husband booked this after being married on the beach and I was amazed at how amazing and helpful the staff was. Everything from the room to the food was perfect. I will NEVER stay anywhere else when I come to Saint Agustine. I will be back next year with my family for my anniversary! Please book this beautiful Inn

Comfortable, full of history, and on the quiet side of the historic district but still within a very fast and easy walk to everything. It's a true inn, not a hotel. They served a delicious breakfast and had other details and extras that made it special. We had a beautiful stay, and this will now be where we always book when in St. Augustine.
