“Everything was "Top Notch"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We chose The Inn on Charlotte for our Birthday weekend stay because of the "stellar reputation" it has. We agree! Everything was perfect!

The location is ideal, close to attractions, shops and restaurants. With all the hustle and bustle which is St. Augustine, the Inn supplied a comfortable, quiet oasis when it was time to kick back!!! The Inn parking was organized and convenient. The Innkeeper and staff were friendly, professional and extremely focused on making our stay as comfortable as possible. The morning breakfast was delicious and caution was taken in advance to cater to food allergies. The cleanliness of the Inn was impeccable! Our bed was soooo comfortable!!

We have stayed in St. Augustine before and Inn on Charlotte has been the BEST. We will definitely be back!!!! Thank you all for the wonderful visit!!!

Room Tip: The Inn offers rooms inside the main house or outside of the main Inn in the carriage house. We enj...

We celebrated my wife's birthday by a night away to St. Augustine and the Inn on Charlotte. Every facet of our stay was wonderful...from cookies and pretzels at arrival, to the nice, clean, quiet accomodations, to the wonderful breakfast by the B&B owner. I can't say enough about our stay.

I chose this B&B because it was the best combination of budget & atmosphere. I spent several hours on Google Maps looking at the surroundings of various B&B's and was most satisfied by this one (websites for B&B's aren't always reliable, because they always put the best foot forward. Some B&B's might have an amazing front porch, but also might be looking at a concrete block wall!). I was not disappointed ONE BIT by our choice to stay at the Inn on Charlotte. If we return to St. Augustine in the future, we will definitely look up Rodney and the Inn on Charlotte!

Thanks for a great, quiet, relaxing stay.

It was our pleasure, and we enjoyed meeting you both. Thank you, for the review. And we know what you mean, we have to do our research too, when traveling.
BTW: Jerry wants me to ask you, in the Google St view, did you see him watering the plants out front? He thinks he's an Internet sensation as a - 'Google gnome'? Just look for '52 Charlotte 32084' and you will see a 'Ham' with a water hose on Street view.

The INN on Charlotte is a wonderful gem tucked away enough to be serene and peaceful but close enough to the action where you only have a few steps to take to be in the middle of everything St. Augustine has to offer. We stayed at the Tiffany, which is one of the rooms that offers parking behind the INN. This was very convenient. We loved our stay and will be back with friends. Thank you!

Room Tip: Make sure you choose a room with parking included behind the INN or you may have trouble finding par...

We are happy to hear you got some well deserved relaxation. We think we could all use more of that. And thank you for the review. I'm sure it will be helpful to others. Our other rooms park on the same street as the inn, only 300 feet past (North) of the inn. And we suggest - in our detailed parking procedures - that guests unload at the inn if needed. Thank you again, and we cant wait to see you again!

This was our 17th anniversary. Our last time at a non-resort property (our 10th) was horrible, but the Inn on Charlotte Street restored out trust in the small operator B&B experience.

The location was convenient to all St. Augustine has to offer. Rooms were clean and comfortable; the veranda was great place to sit and relax in the afternoon and evening. The breakfast was great and did not leave you too full to enjoy your day.

So why 4 stars? Well, the location is near the corner of a busy night spot and we heard all the racket until 2 AM. Certainly not the B&B's fault but rather a fact of the location - especially on a weekend. But don't let my experience deter you from taking the chance on booking a room with a veranda over looking Charlotte Street . The only other draw back was that beer and wine service was not available after 6 PM when they locked down the kitchen and dining area (beer choice was Miller Lite in a can). This is one of the higher priced properties and it would have been great if a fridge out front was stocked for guest self service or a mini-bar was available in the rooms.

Room Tip: If you want quietness on a weekend, try one of the rooms on the backside of the B&B.

We want to thank you for taking the time to write this review. It's very detailed and will be helpful to others doing their research. The room tip in particular. We are in the heart of historic St Augustine, and it does get lively on weekends when the weather gets nice. Those two rooms facing the street are subject to the sounds of the city. It was a pleasure meeting you both, and we look forward to see you again soon.

The house was beautiful! Every thing was so clean and nice. We have stayed a BB before but this was the greatest experience for us. It was like going to family and be welcomed in their home. The food was just the best and was severed with great joy. Rodney's the best! We were able to walk and see the Old City and never has to move the car. I have been to Saint Augustine a number of times before and stayed in a number of places. This by far is the best place to stay for a trip to Saint Augustine. We will be back soon and for sure in June. If you want a cozy and comfortable place to stay this is it, you don't have to look any farther!

This is the second B&B we've stayed at in St. Augustine and I honestly thought the last one was pretty good until I stayed at the Inn on Charlotte. The Inn on Charlotte was so pleasant and welcoming! The breakfast was delicious and the accommodations were cozy and comfortable. Rod was a fantastic host/chef/inn keeper and made the entire experience easy and great from making the reservation to checking out. We will absolutely be back!

This was my first time ever staying at a B&B. I've always wanted to but never got the chance to. My husband had been to several and never really cared for them. Until now... together we got to experience the BEST! Inn on Charlotte had everything you could ask for in the old ancient city. Specifically pluses like a fabulous location in the heart of the city, free parking, comfort, yummy food...I could go on and on. I travel a lot for my job and stay in many different hotels. The personal experience you get at the Inn on Charlotte was so different from the coldness of a hotel. Loved every minute I spent relaxing in the Jacuzzi and we both loved the ability to just take a walk and causually explore the city. Ann did a great job checking us in, giving us tips on where we might want to visit (or may NOT want to visit as well). Rodney's breakfast was DELICIOUS and he went to the lengths of making me a 'carb free' alternative to the delicious smelling waffles being served. Gerald was extremely gracious as he served us and he had us laughing several times with his jokes/comments. We will BE back for sure and VERY soon!

Thank you for EVERYTHING!
