7 Reasons to Stay at A

Bed and Breakfast in St. Augustine

Nearly 500 years ago, Pedro Menendez de Aviles landed on the east coast of Florida and founded what is now the United States of America's first continually occupied European settlement. Today, the location of this settlement is known as the Historic District of St. Augustine, which is also where each of our St. Augustine Historic Inns is located.

While the historical significance of our location is reason enough to stay at one of our bed and breakfasts, here are 7 more reasons to stay at a bed and breakfast – especially when lodging in St. Augustine.

Ready to book your bed and breakfast getaway in the Historic District of the Nation's Oldest City?


1. Staying at a bed and breakfast can save you money.

Since St. Augustine is a popular tourist destination, accommodations are often in high demand. Fortunately, the price of a room at one of our lovely bed and breakfasts is comparable to the price it costs to stay at a hotel or even a short-term rental. However, our bed and breakfasts can save you money. Each of our bed and breakfasts can offer you discounted prices to local destinations as well as home-cooked breakfasts that are beyond the continental breakfast you'd receive elsewhere. The money you save with these deals and not eating out for breakfast is sure to add up fast!

In addition to that, most of the bed and breakfasts offer free on-site parking which is hugely valuable in the Historic District. In fact, if you were to stay outside of the Historic District, you'd have to pay near $15 a day to park.

2. You're greeted with old-fashioned hospitality!

You've probably heard of southern hospitality, which we've got plenty of in Florida. But have you ever heard of innkeeper hospitality? It's similar to genuine, old-fashioned manners with a side of warmth. We'll just say this: the friendliness and welcoming you are greeted with at a bed and breakfast is uncompromising to that of a greeting you'd receive at a different accommodation.

3. A prime location, only a stone's throw from hot spot destinations.

Repeat visitors and locals alike can tell you that in this city, there is no amenity like being in the Historic District. I mean, can you imagine what parking is like in a 12-block historic area with cobblestone streets and high demand of visitors? Trust us when we say, this will turn out to be one of your favorite amenities of our bed and breakfasts. Plus, lodging in the Historic District places you just a few steps from dozens of attractions, historical sites, and restaurants. You'll never have to step foot in a car unless you want to.

4. Each day starts with a home-cooked breakfast.

Wake up each morning to a variation of bacon Asiago quiche, French toast casserole, huevos with green chilies, wild cherry cheesecake stuffed mini pancakes, ham and cheese souffle, or one of the other delicious plates on your bed and breakfasts' menu. Need we say more?
