Travel Blogs from Saint Augustine
Because of a job interview in Tallahassee, FL, Larry and I decided to use the weekend prior to the interview to visit the surrounding area. We'd been to Florida lots of times, but never to Tallahassee or the Panhandle.We left early Saturday morning. It rained all the way down to Florida. I had packed a picnic lunch from Zoe's--chicken salad, …
We had a great day touring St. Augustine, the oldest European city in the United States. We took the trolley around and really enjoyed seeing this beautiful city. Yesterday it rained all day but today was clear if a little cool.
Never knew that the history of United States really started here. This colony started before Jamestown. Ponce de Leon was not looking for the Fountain of Youth, he was looking for gold for the King of Spain.
... would make us official Castillo de San Marcos Junior Rangers. It took us about 1 1/2 hours to fill the form out. Some of the form questions were the following. What would you do to protect this National Monument? Ask a Castillo de San Marcos Ranger why they liked working at the Monument? After we finished the booklet, we turned them in. We earned the Junior Ranger badge + a Junior Ranger Patch.Tyler and I were so Proud we wore them for the whole day.
After a 2 1/2 day drive from Boston we arrived in St. Augustine. St. Augustine is an easy town love given its history, quaint historic downtown, plenty of activities and of course a FORT! Being Bostonians we tend to think of the Mayflower as more or less the first European settlement in the U.S., or maybe Jamestown, VA. However, while Jamestown was established in 1607 and Plymouth Plantation was 1620, St. Augustine was established by the ...
Since whan did a cold artcic blast become a Polar Vortex? Since when are the governor of Georgia and the mayor of Atlanta accountable for snow? Why does Washington DC call a snow day before it snows? Is Angella working in D.C now? Does anyone remember Global Warming? Why is Rob Ford still the most famous Torontonian south of the 49th parallel?

Historical Traveler Reviews St. George Inn Saint Augustine
The St. George Inn combines the convenience of a hotel with the service of a bed and breakfast. The inn is new and has been built to look old and fit in with the St. Augustine architecture. The rooms are spacious, clean and nicely appointed. Its location at the end of the pedestrian mall is quite convenient. We would definitely stay here again.
Don't make a mistake and miss an oppotunity to stay in this Inn. Barbara is a transplanted New Englander who knows how to make you feel special. The rooms are wonderful and if you time it right you can secure one with a balcony view of the Fort and the gates of Old St. Augustine. You are right at the beginning of the historic district and can walk all around on streets where cars are prohibited. The Orange trolleys are the best way to take a crash course on St. Augustine and you pick it up a half a block away by the "Oldest Drugstores" parking lot (which is where you park for the Inn for a measly $5.00) which is also operated by a woman that understands how important being polite to her customers is. Our visit to St. Augustine was wonderful but had we not stayed at The St. George Inn, it wouldn't have been the same.
I stayed at the St. George Inn November 14 -15 2004 and had a great time! I arrived at the Inn from Jacksonville for the last leg of my vacation. I was excited because I read the reviews here and was very pleased. The staff was very helpful and went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable.
As paul would say now what LOL
All I can say is this is the best place to stay in St. Augustine and paul and lori make you feel at home i want to thank them for makeing my many stays there so great thanks again for being there for me
My husband and I stayed at the St. George Inn for our 1st wedding anniversary. I have done a lot of traveling and I can honestly say that this was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. They were extremely helpful and even upgraded our room when we told them it was our anniversary! Our room had a balcony that was overlooking the street and we could also see the castillo and the water. There were wonderful wooden rocking chairs on the balcony. From the side windows we could see into the yard of the oldest wooden school house. There is a candy shop downstairs and the smells were wonderful. We could hear music from the street that added to the atmosphere. The room was clean and beautifully decorated. The hotel is in a good location and we felt enveloped by the St. Augustine ambiance.
I have nothing but excellent things to say about this lovely inn located on St. George street in the historic district of St. Augustine. The new owners (special thanks to Irving) have done a lovely job with renovations and the service is second to none. St. George street is a great pedestian street located just across the street from the ocean and the Castillo de San Marco. We stayed in a lovely room on the 2nd floor with a great view of the Castillo. (The only downfall travelling with a baby was not having an elevator to get all the luggage and baby gear to our room - but the staff was SO helpful). I had a medical emergency while there and the owners insisted on waiving the telephone charges I incurred. The rate was excellent ($99) and included a simple but well stocked continental breakfast served in the small lobby area. I am in the hotel sales industry and I have to say I was more impressed with the staff at the St. George than I have been in a long time!! Thanks for a wonderful stay. We will be back soon!!
This small hotel was great! We had the least expensive room (Santiago) for two nights in June, but it exceeded our expectations! The hotel staff was beyond wonderful, in that they talked us in to the hotel from the interstate (it's easy to get lost in St. Augustine), printed directions to various places we mentioned about visiting, and let us use their personal computer for business! The breakfast was delicious, and had good variety. The room was actually rather large, and had a nice bathroom. The only problems were that the air conditioning was not powerful, so the room was very warm all day and night (even with the fan on high). Also, the bathroom had a handicapped shower, and the water spilled all over the floor. We will definitely stay at St. George Inn if we visit St. Augustine again, but select a different (lower level) room.
Loved our stay
My husband and I stayed at the St George Inn the week of July 4th 2004 and had a wonderful time. It is located in the heart of everything. You can walk to almost anything in the historical area. the staff at the Inn were among the kindest and helpfulest I have seen. The only draw back to the city is it starts up late, 10:00am and stops at about 6:00pm. After that time there is very little to do but eat or drink. I would gladly stay at the St George Inn again and will refer them to anyone that ask about our trip. Thanks again to the staff at St George Inn for a wonderful stay.

Spent five GREAT days at the St George Inn in St Augustine. Special thanks to Paul and Tina. Everyone was great, service is great - location great!!! Price was great, too! Thoroughly enjoyed the time at the St George and plan to return.
I was whisked away last weekend by my boyfriend, now fiance, to St. Augustine. We stayed at St. George's inn Friday and saturday night. The location was fabulous! Right on St. George street! ('THE' tourist stop). the rooms overlook a small courtyard off of st george which has a great coffee shop. Great for morning coffee, and afternoon, etc...while watching the world go by. You're right on St. George and can walk the whole thing from there! Our room had a balcony that overlooked the cemetary (not as morbid as it sounds), and we could see the fort and the water from there. It was really a great location! The room was nice enough. Furnishings were nice, bed was firm, and the room was big enough. Sink was in the bedroom with only shower stall and toilet in the bathroom. There was also a mini-fridge in the room. Nice thing was that the fridge and TV were both in cabinets, so they were hidden away.
