The Best Western Bayfront in St. Augustine Florida had a great view and right in town. Incredibly convenient and very reasonable. Parking at the hotel was extremely convenient as well. We had a room that faced the Bay but unfortunately, if you had a room on the back side of the hotel where you faced the Bay, you were right...

Supposedly a remodeled hotel. It had new things in the room, but still an old hotel. Tiny tiny bathroom! Metal beadstead (?). It is convenient to whatever you want to do in town ! Oh.... they forget to mention the daily fee to park in the pathetically small parking lot........ It is the hotel lot...what's up with that??????

Thank you for your feedback. All of our rooms are recently renovated, but the building was built in the 50's so the high ceilings and wide rooms we are used to now are pretty much non-existent at our hotel. But the furniture and amenities are all from just last year, some rooms have furniture purchased this month! I am sorry...

Location, location, location. Think some places had this rate three stars and that is a stretch, but it seems they are really trying to renovate and get this place established as a go to hotel in the area. By the way, the rate was excellent, the location was terrific and the front desk staff was very helpful. The room could...

We stayed for one night but wished we could have stayed for more! This is by far one of the cleanest hotels ive stayed at in a while.

This is a perfect location to view all Saint Augustine has to offer on foot. However it should not be rated above a 2 star for amenities or service. The pool is only slightly larger than a hot tub and its in the middle of the car park. My room was on a walk way off a concrete corridor on...

We stayed for 3 nights when we went to a wedding. The rooms and bathrooms are small but adequate. Walking distance to restaurants, shops and museums. No breakfast room but they give you a bag with water, fruit and a pastry at the lobby. The price was moderate.

I've stayed here several times and the place has always served me well. There is nothing fancy about the place but it's the location and the price for the great location that brings me back time after time. The place is clean and the beds are comfortable. It's an older hotel but it's kept up and that's ok for me......

Pinellas Park, Florida

The hotel is ideally situated across the street from Castillo San Marco and central to the historic district. The room was clean and comfortable. The housekeeping was spotty, though, and didn't seem to follow any particular schedule. Parking is tight, but available for an extra fee.
