clean rooms and friendly staff Julia was very kind and prompt with her service in helping us find great places to eat and getting around St Augustine. The outdoor balcony was small but there were small bench seats just outside the room. The location easily accessible to old town. We will be planning another trip there!

Cisc01234, Thank you for your kind words! Julia is an amazing member of our staff and I'm glad you got to experience that firsthand. We do have limited space on our balcony, but next time you visit, be sure to visit the balcony and watch the sunrise. It's usually very quiet and peaceful around that time. Plus, gorgeous view!

This was the second time we stayed at this Best Western. Love the location and convenient parking, but we found we could not enjoy the outdoor space. The pool and the out door balcony overlooking the fort and the harbor are lovely, but we were not able to enjoy either of these areas because of ever present cigarette smokers. My...

Kathy, I am not a cigarette-smoker myself, and can understand your frustration about the smoke. I am sorry if this has adversely affected your stay. I hope you can give us another chance whenever you're ready to make it right. Tre Daniels General Manager

This is an average hotel, for the most part, but its location elevates it a bit. It's only a few blocks away from Old Town, shops & restaurants, with a great view of the bay. There's an upper level deck where you can hang out and have a snack or a drink. The pool is kind of shoe-horned into a...

Travelscribe, Thank you for your feedback! Our rooms are all newly renovated and all of the work is completely finished.

Total disappointment, when I called to make my reservation I asked if the room had a bay view I was all the rooms have a bay view but not all are bay front. When we arrived and went to the room there was no bay view, we where facing the parking lot. The bathroom was tiny, you had to go...

Staying at the Bayfront Inn in St. Augustine is a very convenient thing to do. It's in the middle of all things 'touristy'. Even though it's at ground zero/tourist central, the room was quiet. It was clean too. No problems in that area. Aaron, the front desk clerk was very helpful and pleasant. We would certainly stay there again.

Stayed in this hotel on the first floor in August 2016. Great location, you can walk to just about every attraction. They had a small pool, but it is a decent enough size for a quick cool off. Parking was $10 a day, but worth it as parking in St. Augustine can be difficult. The front desk staff was very...

My friend and I arrived on Wednesday, October 5th at 10 a.m. Tyler was nice enough to let us check in and park at that time. The location was excellent, the room clean and well-appointed. After seeing the sights for a couple hours, the weather worsened and we decided it would be wise to leave ahead of Hurricane Matthew's arrival....
