With the explosion of traffic in St. Augustine as a weekend tourist destination, we have seen a corresponding explosion in what we have to pay for parking, so we now charge $10/per day per spot.
We currently have parking available in two areas, both next to the Pirate Haus Inn. The ‘Side Lot’ has 3 spaces and is just before our building on Treasury street. It is a dirt lot with landscape timbers and bricks to mark the ‘lanes’. The parking spots on the left and right are long enough for two cars or an extended truck or SUV. We ask that small cars only park in the middle spot (in front of the small tree stump) so that the bigger cars can better maneuver.
We also have 3 spots in the ‘Chianti Room’ lot. They are behind the building on Charlotte Street up against the building. There are ‘No Parking – Tow Away Zone’ signs numbered 23 & 24 . We place bright orange cones in front of the spaces which you should replace when you leave one of these spots as tourists often think that these are part of the public parking spots.
If we do not have any space available in our lots, we will gladly provide you with FREE parking at the City Parking Garage on Cordova/Orange street (3-4 blocks away) via a City Parking Pass. This is a magnetic pass that you swipe at a reader when entering AND exiting the garage. If you fail to swipe at exit, you will not be able to reenter the garage, as the reader will think “you are still here, you can’t come in again.” so you will have to exit your vehicle, walk to the exit reader and swipe, before being allowed to enter the garage. We ask for a $10 deposit as this is what the city charges us to Void and Reissue a magnetic pass. You can exit and re-enter the garage at your leisure, however on weekends and special events the Garage fills up and if you arrive after 11AM on a weekend or special event, you may not find a space.
Please remove your car from our lots IMMEDIATELY after you check out. Our check-in time is 11AM! We have guests arriving after your check out! If you plan to stay in town after your check out, please ask about other parking options at the front desk.
The main parking garage is usually a great option, it is shaded so your car stays cool. Additionally if you are a regular visitor, you can buy a Park Now card with $20 of stored value on it. This enables you to park in the parking facility located on Cordova Street for $3 instead of $15 for everybody else, and meters will run you 50 cents an hour instead of $2.50. Park Now cards are available for purchase only at the office located at the Parking Office, open only Mon-Fri 7:30AM-4:30PM. More information is available HERE. The Parking Office is located HERE.
Metered parking is $2.50/hr, but only needs to be paid from 8:00AM to 5:00PM Monday thru Saturday. After 5:00PM until 8:00AM during these days, it is FREE. Sundays and Holidays are also free all day at metered parking (except the Fort Lot)
There is a paid lot across from our Inn, accessible from Charlotte Street that costs between $12-$20 per day with no in/out privileges.
Our parking lot has the capacity for 5 cars. However, due to consistent parking issues of folks being blocked in by other rooms that haven’t left us keys, have their cell phones left behind, etc – we now only offer parking for 3 cars in our lot. This is based on a first come, first serve basis, and will cost $5.00/per day. If you booked two rooms, you have the option to block in your other car provided you have the knowledge we will not be able to move anyone’s car for them at any time.
You are permitted to park temporarily in the lot to unload your luggage, but are limited to 10 minutes. We reserve the right to tow cars that we cannot identify parking in our lot.
