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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
