I am from St. Augustine (now in NC) and was in town recently to help my Mom with hurricane repairs. I chose this location due to, well, the location. Getting around town and trying to park has always been a challenge. It was great to have a parking spot and the valets were always there to assist you. We had...

We stayed in a room with one King Sized Bed and we felt a little squeezed, especially in the bathroom; it was very clean, just tiny. After our stay, I requested to look at a room with two queen beds and it felt a lot more roomy, especially the bathroom. The location was convenient to everything and the price was...

The room wasn't anything fancy, but we were only there for one night. The hotel staff was very nice. We did find the parking lot to be a bit tricky and tight, but we never had to move the car once we were there.

We stayed one night here. The location is excellent for access to historic St. Augustine and the seafront. It's a bit loud due to traffic along the main drag. Pet-friendly, clean room, no breakfast although we did get vouchers for restaurant next door. No fitness room. Internet connection very poor. Took so long for hot water to reach room that...

Two thumbs up! Walking distance to the fort, water views from the big balcony, really convenient. You can't go wrong with this place. Room was comfortable, parking is tight but they help you when parking and you can leave your car there and catch the trolley right outside.

We stayed at the Bayfront only three weeks after hurricane Matthew and found it to be in excellent condition. Location is a big plus for this hotel. Most importantly the people who work here are excellent ambassadors for their employer. Ms. Julie Johnson the front desk day manager was exceptional. She was attentive to our needs and desires. I observed...

The hotel was older and the room small but that is expected when you visit one of the oldest cities in the US. The room was clean and comfortable. Parking was limited but a staff member came out and helped me out with finding a spot and directing me so that was very helpful. The location was great. Right in...

The hotel is very nice and clean. I only wish they offered a continental breakfast. But other than that I would highly recommend it. The staff was very nice. I didn't have a reservation but we were still able to get a room.
