We found The Old Powder House Inn such a pleasant, clean, friendly place. Breakfast was very delicious and served with such a sense of "home" and friendliness. We loved our stay here. We were welcomed as if we were family, so warmly.

Bob and Suzanne were fantastic. Food was delicious. Little noisy in front room. Close to all sites. Balconies and seating were plentiful. Snacks and water refilled daily. Safe and secure rooms. Look forward to getting back to St Augustine and staying at the Old Powder House.

My wife and I met friends and stayed two nights and had a great stay in room 1, which I would call the "clock" room. Breakfast was amazing and had evening wine and a cookie before bed. All good and worth coming from Oregon for. :-) thanks.

The Grace Darling Room was amazing with a jacuzzi and fireplace which was perfect for the fall nights in St. Augustine. We enjoyed this spot and the place we...

We just loved the Powder House Inn. The breakfasts were amazing. Bob and Suzanne could not have been more accommodating. We had such a great time. The Inn is within walking distance of most of what you want to see in the area. We didn't even move our car from when we got there until we left. The rooms were...

Great place: room was very neat and well kept, great atmosphere: room is 117 years old and looks better than most new rooms!, we loved the breakfast: stuffed french toast! Friendly staff, great location. Can't wait to come back, Bob and Suzanne are the best! Highly recommended!

Thank you so much Bob and Suzanne for a lovely stay in the Enchanted Hideaway, the cookies were to die for, the breakfast was scrumptious and the welcome was amazing, loved Dude too. A perfect location, close enough to everything yet far enough to be peaceful, even played tic-tac-toe in the balcony after dinner 😊

The Old Powder House Inn is a Bed and Breakfast in the heart of historical downtown St. Augustine. The hosts, Bob and Suzanne, were very welcoming and did everything they could to make us comfortable. We had a very private room on the first floor as well as access to several common areas of the house; we especially enjoyed the...

Our stay was great. They greet you and talk to you like friends. The room was small but it's not a problem because nobody stays in their room on vacation. The staff and the service was great. Breakfast was excellent. They really go out of their way to make you feel like you got more than you pay for. The...
