Four couple got together to visit St. Augustine and stayed at the Bayfront Inn because it was the perfect location to walk to everything. The rooms were nice, but they had a issue with the flooring they put in. It gave off a black residue on your feet and/or socks (keep your shoes on). They said they are working to...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 December 2016

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 really liked this location being so close to the Old Fort, Old city and the nice view of the Bay. There is easy access to the Hop-on , Hop off buses which is great for getting an overview of the area. The room was fine with comfortable beds but with a tiny bathroom. We missed not having a continental...

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, our facility is too small to hold a breakfast area. That is why we have the full service restaurant next door for breakfast/lunch. I am glad that you were able to take advantage of our prime location in St. Augustine. We really are one of the most accessible hotels in town! I hope we...

Bathroom window was broken, would not even locked. Try to open it and the window literally fell out into my hands. The bathroom was so extremely small that one person would barely fit. The room was advertised as a water front room, when in reality it was across the street from the water. You could see the water from the...

Thank you for your review. We strive for guest satisfaction, and it upsets me to see that a loyal member had such a rough night at our hotel. I have forwarded your concerns to the proper departments in the hotel. Not every room in our hotel has a water view unfortunately, only the bayfront suites have the full scenic view....

The location and view is perfect. The property is old, so the bathrooms are VERY small and the AC doesn't work well. The rooms are not very clean. We spilled water on the tile floor and when we wiped it up, the paper towels were BLACK, even after several times cleaning it. There was hair in the shower and on...

I came to Florida to rediscover lost treasure. What better a place than St. Augustine so rich in history. Far a sleepy little port town with few hotels/motels on the bayfront, the Best Western Bayfront turned out be an excellent choice location. The room given me was immaculate, very spacious with all amenities, save a kitchen, had a grand view...

This was our second time to stay at Best Western Bayfront Inn. We request the same room and they make it available, our schedule is flexible. You have parking on the property and we used our vehicle one time in 4 days this trip. Everything is within walking distance. Lots of great restaurants and shops! We love it.

Pricey to sat the least but if you can afford it get the room over the office! Pet Friendly but smells good!!! Cookies are yummy. Walk to everything in St Augustine and not having to park in St Augustine is huge!
