“Cozy B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

I love St. Augustine so my husband took me for my 30th birthday. We waited until the last minute to book our room, and only going for 1 night we knew some B&B's would be booked and others wouldn't allow a 1 night stay. But Castle Garden made an exception! Check in was at 3, we arrived a little after 4 and our room was not ready yet, Bruce advised it would be a few moments and offered us a drink. While waiting a very nice older couple came in and we chatted for about 20 minutes while Bruce readied our room. We stayed in the West Castle Loft room, it was cozy, we had our own bathroom and the bedding was well kept. Breakfast was nice, granola cereal, pancakes and sausage with coffee and OJ, simple but yummy. Castle Garden is at a great location too, its on the same road as the fort, just a 2-3 minute walk and you are there and then you can go right back into town, it was a perfect location for starting from one end, going around and coming back through the other side of downtown. We didn't get to speak to Bruce too much as we only stayed for 1 night and we were gone most of the time but the little we did speak to him he was very friendly and knowledgable.

If you like St. Augustine History and want to stay in the carriage house of the Mansion that started it all, stay here. The Inn Keeper (Bruce) is very hospitable and can offer a great deal of hitorical knowledge about the area. You will be just steps away from all that Ol' downtown St Augustine has to offer. The Castle Garden Bed and Breakfast is the old carriage house to the Warden Mansion (Flagler's business partner) now the famous (and haunted) Ripley's Museum. My room was very comfortable, and shower was HOT! I'll stay here again.

Room Tip: Guessing the upstairs rooms are quieter than downstairs, only because it is an old building and the...

Castle Garden is a wonderful magnetic place to stay. I would recommend to anyone. The room was lovely and had a very comfy vintage style. Bruce (the owner) was pleasant and very informative about things to do in St. Augustine. Our breakfast was yummy and the location was perfect......yet there was no noise, so that made the stay very calm and quiet in the room when we had to sleep. I plan on going back in the next few months and I plan on staying here again. If you want to have great personal customer service and a real B&B stay, then Castle Garden is the place to stay!

Room Tip: Pick the rooms with the huge whirlpool tub, because its so worth it. The jets, water pressure and t...

This was both my boyfriends and I's first time staying at a bed and breakfast. Bruce was awesome!! He told us the backstory of the home; it used to be the stables for the Ripley's mansion! He did a wonderful job reconstructing the house. He was very hospitable and made very good breakfast. He had many rooms to choose from and had very good decorations. The location was perfect! Right by Ripley's and behind the welcome trolley center. I can't say enough good things about this bed and breakfast! I will definaly be returning.

The Castle Garden Bed & Breakfast is located behind the Old Town Trolley Welcome Center and next to Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum. After my girlfriend and I arrived for a Friday night stay and touring the Inn, we decided to stay there Saturday night as well. We made a great choice. After a day of visiting the other B&Bs in the area, we agreed that we were staying at the best one for the money. Bruce is one of the most gracious hosts we have met. He provided us with a tour map of the city and helped us plan "to-do" list.

Room Tip: When you make the reservation, book a room upstairs and ask for a tour of the house.
