It is nearly impossible to choose just one out of all the fine bed and breakfasts in St. Augustine. Whether tucked along the narrow streets of the ancient city or overlooking the bay, each has its own history, style and choice amenities. Let the St. Augustine Historic Inns Association help you choose. They are a group of over two dozen historic inns in the St. Augustine area that offer all different types of experiences and decors.
The Bayfront Inn
The Bayfront Inn in St. Augustine is a mid-priced motel on the bay front located within easy walking distance of the old downtown shops and eateries. The property is far from new, but has a good reputation for cleanliness and adequate accommodations.
Hilton Historic Bayfront
The newest hotel in old St. Augustine is winning guests over with convenient location right in the middle of the historic district that delivers breathtaking views of Mantanzas Bay. Hilton quality and location makes it a little pricey, but well worth the expense.
Casa Monica Hotel
Casa Monica is luxury at it's finest. Located in downtown St. Augustine, this boutique hotel is right on the water and offers guests generous amenities, including complementary beachside chair service, tranquility spa access, and an art gallery on premise. Although on the pricier side, it's well worth the splurge.
The Inn at Camachee Harbor
Great reviews and reasonable rates will win you over! The inn is located north of the downtown historic district but it is St. Augustine's most popular marina hotel. Enjoy the water views along with breathtaking sunrise and sunsets.
Hampton Inn St. Augustine Beach
Absolutely beautiful oceanfront property that gets rave reviews from everyone. Wonderful amenities, including a fun recreational playground located on the beach for the kids. The hotel's close proximity to the city's historic district makes it an all around great location.
St. Augustine Island Inn
The new owners of this former Ramada Limited seem to be doing everything right. Friendly service and cleanliness goes a long way to please guests. This modestly decorated property is a good bet for those looking for pet-friendly accommodations.
La Quinta Inn & Suites, St. Augustine
The perfect I-95 location for shopaholics. It's as close to St. Augustine's two great outlet malls as you can get and just minutes from historic downtown. Great, clean property that garnishes consistently good reviews.
Camping: St. Augustine Beach KOA Kampground Resort
Park your RV or pitch your tent at this nice campground with convenient location to the beach and not too far from historic downtown St. Augustine. Both are far enough to need a car. Waterfront rental cabins are also available (pictured here).
