“I will not return...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I have never written a bad review about any place. But, I felt that my impression was so different than other reviews that I needed to say something. The restaurant is wonderful and the staff was very attentive. The location was superb. Perhaps, I stayed in the wrong room? I would return to have dinner but never, ever to stay there, again. The blinds did not close well and there were no curtains. Needless to say, there was too much light in the room at night. I understand that is the "Old" City Inn but "old" and worn-out are different. The commode was noisy, the hook on the back of the bathroom door was falling apart and the general ambience of the room was...well, not old and charming as I had anticipated. The price was outrageous. Our room needed a fresh coat of paint and some attention to detail. Thanks, but I will not be back.

Lovely setting in the heart of old St. Augustine. It is easy to find and free parking in the old city is a blessing. The staff is very attentive and goes out of their way to provide unlisted services. The room was as advertised with very good stocking and amenities. Breakfast service was charming. Excellent overall value and we would stay there again.

My husband and I stayed here early December after attending a wedding in Orlando.
We were absolutely thrilled...cannot say a bad word about anything!
We LOVED the staff, (Christina, Martin) had so much fun with them including the lovely owner!
The food was outstanding...I can't say enough about it...
Besides the complimentary breakfast and happy hour, we found ourselves wanting to dine there for dinner! Superb!
The rooms were clean, comfortable and beautiful!
The location is terrific!
I can't imagine anyone saying anything negative...if so...there's something wrong with them...
certainly not the "Old City House Inn"!
