“Most Romantic Getaway!!”
Reviewed March 22, 2011

I can not say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay at the Inn at Charlotte. I have always wanted to go to a B&B and my boyfried and I finally decided on the Inn at Charlotte in St. Augustine. I can not imagine a better place to stay for a weekend getaway. Great customer service!!

When I went to book the inn online through a B&B website it booked us under the wrong date. I was so worried that the inn would not let us change our date. I emailed the inn to let them know what happened and before I could even call them, Rodney, the owner, had already sent us a new confirmation with the corrected date. He even called to let me know that everything had been taken care of and I could not thank him enough for how stress free he made the whole situation.

When we arrived in St. Augustine, my boyfriend and I were having some difficulty getting to the B&B because of the one lane roads. I called Rodney and he explained to us how to get there. Not only did he give us great directions but he waited outside of the inn to make sure we found our way. Once we got there he unloaded our bags and walked my boyfriend to his parking spot around the corner. Again, the customer service was phenomenal.

The inn is located right in the middle of historic, downtown St Augustine. You could not ask for a better location. We were a walk away from everything.

Our check inn was so easy and we were ready for an amazing weekend. Our room, the Mary Lilly, was georgeous. Very clean and accomodating. Rodney, the innkeeper, even added a window a/c unit to our room! The whole set up was amazing.

At 5:00 pm we went down for the social hour where Rodney had set up wine and a lobster spread. The wine was really good and the lobster spread was amazing. Rodney even participated in social hour giving us the history of the inn and some interesting areas to hang out in St Augustine. He even recommended a wonderful, Irish restaraunt that had fresh oysters. My boyfriend said that they were the best ones he had ever had.

In the morning, we woke up to fresh coffee and an amazing breakfast. We started with a poached pear w/ an almond creme sauce. It was out of this world. We had belgian waffles with praline syrup and sausage. All homemade.

All in all, I have never had a better weekend. The best customer service!! We had such a great experience at the Inn on Charlotte that we are already planning our 5 year anniversary there.

Thanks for everything Rodney! Try not to work to hard!

My boyfriend and I came to spend Valentines Day weekend in St. Augustine and randomly chose the Inn on Charlotte. What a great decision that was! From the moment we got there the owners were so nice and friendly. We stayed in Marjorie K. Rawlings which was a great pick. It was secluded in the back of the Inn, we had our own porch with a waterfall which was very peaceful, and the room itself was very comfortable. The breakfast was absolutely amazing. I still keep having flash backs of how wonderful the food was. All in all i would highly recommend staying at this bed and breakfast. Everything was perfect and I wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else. We look forward to coming back and visiting soon!

Thank you so very much for your review of absolutely wonderful, this means so very much to each of us here at The Inn On Charlotte. We designed the court yard of the Marjorie K. Rawlings Bungalow to get reviews like this. The court yards extra special treat is that it has nightscaping lights so you can continue to enjoy the fountain and garden into the evening. Your comments on the made from scratch breakfasts are also appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you two again soon.

The owners, Rodney and Jerry, are ready to make your stay a great as possible. They made dinner reservations and got us in right when we wanted each night.

The room (Tiffany Suite) was roomy, clean, very functional (small TV, but that's not why we were there), and pleasantly decorated (with a few Tiffany lamp shades). Breakfast is adequate in portion and very tasty, but not as extensive as in many B&Bs. The 9:15 breakfast time works out well, but it didn't seem flexible (maybe if you ask, you could get a different time if needed).

The locatioin is excellent, in the heart of Old Town, with easy walking to all the sites. Parking is provided (for some of the rooms, including Tiffany Suite, the parking is behind the Inn, but for most rooms, you have to drop off luggage and use reserved spaces in lots a block or so away). However, the three parking spots in the rear of the building are tight, and nothing larger than a small SUV should be parked there, in our opinion.

As with any Old Town Inn, nighttime can be noisy. We were there during St. Patrick's week, so there was a variety of "enthusiastic" traffic in the area. Street noise echos between the buildings, so loud groups walking or motor bikes can interrupt the peace. The front porch of the Inn is a great place to people watch.

Rodney and Jerry bought and renovated the Inn in fall 2010, and we think they have further ideas for improving the place. But, even now, this is a fine place to stay.

Thank you so very much for the detailed review. We have been working on the Inn at a very fast pace and glad to hear that it shows. The three parking spaces in back of the Inn are a rare find in the nation's oldest city. We highly recommend to our guests to bring the smallest car possible, mostly due to the narrow streets here in St Augustine. Our parking lot, less than 300 feet down Charlotte Street, contains the other 5 spaces. We get mixed messages about our breakfast portions, all of our breakfasts get great reviews but you are the second guest to mention portion size. We have added more to the plates, only to have to dispose of the extra portion. We often ask guests if they would like more and the response has been that they have had plenty. Based on the many other reviews, we think we have the portion size right for our two course breakfast.

We enjoyed hosting you and hope you enjoyed getting your glass of wine early on the front porch. Come see us again soon.

Every year my husband and I stay at the inn for our anniversary. He proposed to me while staying there so it is very special to us. This year we tried a different room which the bed was very uncomfortable but we were told they had a new mattress being put in when we left so hopefully that one is more comfortable. We will continue to try other rooms but so far I love the tiffany studio the best.

Thank you for coming to stay with us for your anniversary! The Tiffany Studio is our largest room and now has a King size bed, is a favorite of many of our quests. Also, the bed in Anna Marcotte's Hideaway has been replaced as well as the air conditioner. We look forward to seeing you again next year or even sooner to try the other rooms.

We can not say enough about our stay at the Inn on Charlotte. The hosts were very accommodating, friendly and helpful with suggestions on where to eat and things to do. The breakfasts were amazing. There was a bit of creativity with a whole lot of taste! We would highly recommend staying here and if we are ever back in St. Augustine, this is the place we'll be.

We can't say enough about this Bed & Breakfast. The hosts were warm, friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was exceptional and truly gourmet with host, Rodney, even ensuring that the ingredients would be to our liking!! Our room was impeccable and decorated very tastefully with an extremely comfortable queen bed. We especially enjoyed that our room (#1) opened onto the upper balcony. We sat out in the sunshine in the morning drinking our coffee, people-watching and checking our e-mails with complimentary wireless internet. The Inn is close to everything and you can walk to the best tourist attractions, restaurants and pubs. We are frequent visitors to St.Augustine and the 'Inn on Charlotte' is now our first choice for all of our future visits. We only wish we had found it before! You will not be disappointed!

This was already our 2nd visit after staying here in October 2010 when Rodney & Jerry were still becoming acquainted with this beautiful B&B and all its wonderful quirks. We stayed in the Heminway room both visits; thoroughly enjoying our balcony view of historic Charlotte Street, the in-room jacuzzi tub & fireplace, and the absulutely heavenly bed! Do plan on waking in time to enjoy the gourmet breakfast, served in the dining room! The meal is divine and it's a nice opportunity to interact with the other guests as well as the hosts who do everything they can to make you feel comfortable and welcome!
Yes, we'll be back!

Dear Kim and Jim, Thank you for staying with us again, we enjoy talking with the two of you very much. Also, many thanks for the very nice review about the breakfasts and your room. The Henry Flagler Veranda room is our most requested room for the very reasons you mentioned.

We look forward to your next visit with us here at The Inn On Charlotte.
