Two senior couples shared a Castillo Suite for a 1-night getaway recently. We arrive two hours before check in but were warmly welcomed and accommodated. We were somewhat confused about the parking from the directions on the website, but when we slowed to ask at the office, a staffer jumped out to direct us to a nearby parking spot. He unloaded the luggage while we checked in. The room was not ready, but the front desk called and instructed cleaning staff to ready the room a.s.a.p. We received a parking pass which allowed us to bypass the $10.00 parking garage charge. Instead a $5.00 per day charge was added to our room. We didn't need our car at all, since the Inn is so well placed in the historic old city. We were within walking distance to most of the historic sites and a slew of fun shops and old churches. Great restaurants were mere blocks - or at farthest, a trolley ride away. (We highly recommend the using the trolley.) All of the rooms occupy the second floors of neighboring houses. Our suite faced the old Spanish fort and had a view of the Lion's bridge and bay. The rear porch faced the oldest wooden school house in the country. The side view was a court yard with water powered wheel and an ancient blacksmith shop. The covered porch that we shared with one other suite ran around three sides of the building and had comfortable rockers. Additional security was present in a picturesque iron gate at the porch entrance that unlocked with our room key. The suite was very clean, nicely decorated and quite spacious with a separate queen bedroom, full closet, large bathroom with ample towels, dining area and living area. One couple slept on a comfortable pull-out queen size sofa. A small refrigerator and coffee/tea maker made living and snacking easy. The excellent continental breakfast included a variety of baked goods, yogurts, meats and fruit. We took ours up to our dining area - but the courtyard outside the front office was also a nice place to sit and eat. The staff was friendly and helpful at all times. The area was very quiet on this early March weekday evening. On our way back from dinner, all the shops were already closed and shuttered. We enjoyed the peaceful walk, but know it isn't everyone's cup of tea. We loved everything about the St. George Inn, especially the convenient location, historic atmosphere and ambiance.
