Excellent hosts and wonderful breakfasts. Great location for exploring the old city, we didn't move the car from arrival to departure. Although it didn't spoil our stay we felt that naming our room "Serenity" was a bit ironic as it did get street noise as well as not having the quietest air conditioning in town! Would happily stay again if...

Thank you for posting. We love having visitors from 'across the pond' at the Old Powder House Inn. Yes, even though we are a bit removed from the busiest area, we still experience the atmosphere of Historic Saint Augustine when the city is full. We will look into the A/C unit as it is brand new and should be relatively...

The inn is so comfortable and relaxing. The owners, Bob and Suzanne make you feel right at home. My sister and I came for a girl getaway and the location was perfect for walking around town. Very convenient location to everything!

We only stayed one night, but wished we had planned more! We stayed in the Grace Darling Room which was very romantic with a giant garden tub. The tub came in handy after walking all around town. Aaahhh relaxing. The bathroom had a nice sized shower and plenty of fluffy clean towels. The bed was big and comfy. The owners...

Just returned from a 3-night stay in the Old Powder House Inn. We stayed in the Garden Room. The inn is located a 2 block walk from St George Street which is the center of the historic area.

What a wonderful time, room was super cute, hot tub, fireplace, allowed for perfect much needed get away. My only suggestion would be to make room for a small fridge in the room, this would make it nice for those who bring snacks, drinks and left overs from all the amazing local eateries. Location was PERFECT!!! the owners were OUTSTANDING......
