The Saragossa Inn B&B
Ranked #25 of 31 St. Augustine B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Location is perfect....food is great...bed's are soft...very friendly...I didn't want to leave. We planned to stay only one night but enjoyed it so much we went back for the next night. Love the rooms. Stayed in two separate rooms with each room having it's own style. Gibbs is a great cook and an interesting person to talk to. In fact I would move in if they let me :-). Very reasonable for what you get. We recommend this inn and we will be back.

Room Tip: Doesn't matter what room...They are all nice. First night was a room for two..the second was a...

The Saragossa Inn is perfectly located in a charming, quiet neighborhood with a short walk to everything in the historic district. The room we stayed in was lovely and the bed was so comfortable that we debated over whether or not to just stay in the room all day. The 3 course breakfast in the morning was downright divine!
Gibbs is a gracious host and we can't wait to stay at his Inn during our next stay in St. Augustine.

My husband and I decided to try a B&B for the first time when going to St. Augustine for a couple of days. I'm so glad we picked the Saragossa Inn. As many have said the location is ideal if you are looking to be close (walking distance) to town but away from the hustle and bustle (and noise). Our room (Southwind) was very nice and clean. It was pretty spacious but I believe it is one of the more spacious rooms. There rooms are very private - everyone has their own entrance, outdoor space and off street parking; which is great.

Some of the reviews I read were complaining that the rooms weren't cleaned daily. I actually had no problem with this. They explained at check-in that this is for our privacy and Gibbs and his staff are more than willing to do it if you ask them.

Brunch (at 9:30 or 10:30) was OUTSTANDING! Ask Gibbs to make biscuits - best I've ever had.

We had a great time and we will definitely stay again when we return to St. Augustine. Thanks all for very nice stay!

A great B&B within walking distance of downtown in a nice quite area of town. BUT the only have two dining times for brunch, 0930 or 1030. Appro if we were in Europe but this is America. Plus they are pet friendly, SO if your neighbor has a young lab that likes to bark all of the time, good luck having any quite time!!!!!!!!!!! OK place but lotxs of problems! Going to Key West for next vacation :) Good gourmet food for the brunch do all is not bad :)

thesaragossainn, Owner at The Saragossa Inn B&B, responded to this reviewResponded August 10, 2013

We’re glad you thought we have “a great B&B,” we think so too! We are also very proud of St. Augustine. It has the feel of an Old World European City AND it’s right here in America! We hope that some of that Old World charm carries through to our B&B. Our English-style Tea Room is the setting for our three-course BRUNCH served daily at 9:30 and 10:30 seatings. Many of our guests, who are here on vacation after all, prefer sleeping-in and appreciate our 10:30 seating.

And yes we do have pet-friendly rooms. And yes one afternoon we did have a dog who was unhappy about being left behind. But the owner was contacted and returned within 15 minutes to take care of the situation and there was no reoccurrence.

If there were other problems, the Innkeeper lives on site and is always just a phone call away. So we would have been happy to help if you had only let us know. Our goal is to provide our guests with a pleasant and individual stay in our home. We WANT you to enjoy your stay with us.

So to conclude, “BEWARE, the Saragossa Inn is “a great B&B” with ”good gourmet food” where all are welcome, including pets, and treated like family by an attentive Innkeeper and helpful staff.

If staying at an impersonal hotel or resort has been your idea of a great vacation then you might consider trying something very different...this B&B is owner operated and the difference is fabulous. The room was romantic and quieter than any (even upscale) hotel my husband and have ever stayed. Instead of hotel furnishings you get a very creative and eclectic vision put together from years' worth of collecting by the owner(s).

The bed was quite comfortable, the water pressure strong with plenty of hot water; because of the heat we showered twice a day. It took us a little while to get oriented to the city, but when we did we realized that this lovely house was within easy walking distance of nearly everything we might desire to see.

Gibbs was a fountain of information and exuded warmth and competency from the time we walked in. If a guest needs anything it is never too much trouble, whether it be making reservations at a restaurant, or calling the tour trolley. My husband asked for ice so we could have a relaxing drink after a day of exploring and Gibbs came out of his house (next door) to provide it.

The daily brunch was always different and fueled us for most of the day until dinner without making us feel bloated! We arrived on a Thursday night and left on Sunday and had one of the best wedding anniversary getaways ever!

Room Tip: We had a large room at the front-I would recommend it!

Booked a three night stay, great location with its own parking behind the Inn and within easy waking distance of the city. Gibbs is a great Innkeeper and the three course breakfasts he prepares are out of this world. Gibbs and all his staff were really helpful and friendly

The location was great. Walkable to everything but nestled on a quiet side street with character. Room was cute and bed was very comfortable. Service was amazing. The staff was genuinely friendly and very accommodating. Brunch was delicious. Your stay comes with a daily 3 course brunch which was a great way to start the day.
