Location could not have been better, I love boats, and this is across from the marina. You can walk across Bridge of Lions to even more restaurants. Coquina walls are thick and we had to sit outside for Wi Fi to work, but what a view. Room was clean and comfortable, and reasonably priced. Breakfast was great and appreciated, there... More

I was forced to cancel a reservation at this motel due to a medical emergency. They had the right to charge my credit card for the entire two-day stay. I spoke to the night clerk, Kelly, and the hotel manager, Dee, and they cheerfully canceled my reservation without penalty. This is what customer service is all about. David G.

We needed two bedrooms for our girls weekend and not many hotels, motels or B&B's had any availability. We had two queens in one room and one king in the other room. We chose Bayfront Inn for the 2 bedroom, location and pool, but had some concerns with previous reviews. However once we arrived we found out room was spacious... More

Excellent location, close to old town shops and attractions all within walking distance. Bayfront Inn sits across from the bay near the bridge of Lions which leads to St Augustine Beach. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is provided every morning with a good variety to choose from. The staff were friendly and provided assistance for anything that... More

I came to St. Augustine in May 2014 to which I stayed 20 mins completely away from downtown; before I left I saw the Bayfront Inn & wrote their name down for future reference; after a month I wanted to do something nice for my dad who was visiting me from Ohio & I decided to take him to St....

The A/C does not stay set. They have the rooms programed to auto reset to 78 degrees after a few hours. With this problem the moisture in the air is never removed from the room, making it muggy with a mildew smell. They highly febreze the room to cover the bad smell. This issue with the A/C causes you to... More

Upon entering the room, the smell of mold or mildew was overpowering. Every breath felt like we were inhaling spores, and this made being in the room very unpleasant to be in, even though overall the room looked clean. The smell seemed to be coming from the AC vent, but of course it was too hot outside to not run... More

This was our second stay at the Bayfront Inn. Our first time was about 6 years ago and it wasn't very good. I was leery to book but only needing a room for one night and the price was right we decided to give it a try. What improvements in the last few years. Room was nice size, front desk... More

My Wife and I stayed at the Bayfront when we were in St. Augustine for a concert at the amphitheater. It was a last second trip and we chose the Bayfront because others were staying there and…it was available. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed our stay. The inn is basically of an old motor lodge design that has been... More
