The Ancient City Inn
Ranked #28 of 30 St. Augustine B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 May 2017 via mobile

My daughter graduated high school and she was devastated because her plans for the weekend fell through. So as a last minute effort I stepped in to try and turn it around for her. Luckily the Ancient City Inn had availability.

We were greeted by William and his dachshund who are both amazingly nice and polite! Checking in was easy and No, he did not write down my credit card information, he ran it just like any hotel would. He then walked us up to our suite and made sure we had everything we needed.

We stayed in the Maxfield parish suite which included the colonel's room. This home was built in 1910 and the owners have really done a wonderful job maintaining all the charm and feel of the home. The owners have thought of EVERYTHING and do a really good job of welcoming you into their home as well maintaining the original charm and 'feel' of the home itself.

In conclusion, my family and I agree (and I am a HUGE 'hotel snob'). Staying here really turned what could've been a bad weekend into a weekend that will give really good memories for years to come. We feel like this is one of the best kept secrets in St. Augustine and an Inn that really makes you feel as if you're visiting long time friends! We will definitely be back over and over again!

This place charmed us to no end. The proprietor, William, is the friendliest, most accommodating Inn Master we've ever run across. The location is so convenient - just a quick walk to downtown. The rooms are cozy, welcoming, and utterly free of pretense.
Don't book a stay here if you need towel warmers and $100 Buttered Noodle dinners; it's not posh, and doesn't try to be.
Do book a stay here if you have a taste for the unique and an appreciation for good people and good times.
We'll be returning to Ancient City Inn every chance we get!

I could not stress enough how bad this place is. My wife booked 2 nights here in advance. When we got there we had to pay in advance where he wrote down our credit card info. When we went to our room it was a nightmare. There was a piece of thin warped paneling separating our room from the other rental room, puke on the shower curtain and the place smelled like mildew. The place is ancient all right but in all the wrong ways. Everything was so warn out and broken I refused to stay there. The creepy owner refused to refund any of our money even for the second night. We had to stay at a local run down motel for a night that was still a huge upgrade from that place. They say its haunted but thats probably the owner creeping around in the next rental. Please dont waste your money at this scam. This place should be torn down. Any review on here that is more than 1 star has to be fake.

Also maybe a coincidence but a week after this place our credit card info was stolen. Maybe related maybe not. Dont make the same mistake we did.

Horrible, horrible!!

Second stay at the Inn, located strategically between the Fountain of Youth and Ripley's Museum. Room was a suite arrangement, reached via an outside staircase. Breakfast served on the porch. Quiet two story house on the main thoroughfare. Rooms furnished with "antiques" and very comfortable. Fabulous Raihtree Restaurant iin easy walking distance! Good stay!

This was our second time staying at this inn, and we will definitely be back! The inn keepers are so friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Martha Lee room which is just the perfect size, with a private bathroom and a mini kitchen. The room was very clean and the bed was super comfy! Each morning a basket with goodies and coffee was left on the porch table right outside of our door which we really enjoyed. The location is perfect just a short walk to the center of the city. Also a big plus is the on site parking! Overall we definitely give the inn keepers and the inn 5 stars.
