We were so happy with our short stay at Bella Bay! Modern, comfortable rooms in a historic building. Walkable to the fort, close to bridge of lions and everything else you might need during your St Augustine stay! Loved that there was designated parking. The glass coffee mugs and breakfast basket delivered at our door were another great, much appreciated... More

Wanted to love it......Room #5 was beautiful!! King size bed, great bathroom with a lovely tub and shower. Spotlessly clean. I would have given 5 stars except for a couple of things. First - the website looks as though the room has a balcony - and my bad not to ask. No balcony in any of the rooms as far... More

We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us--we want all of our guests to love Bella Bay like we do! Some of your disappointment seems to come from a misunderstanding--you booked our "Bayview 1" room online (not Room 5). Bayview 1 has a nice view of the bay but, as you said, it does not have a...

We booked our wedding with The White Room so we decided to book with the Bella which is directly next door for our wedding weekend. We booked the signature suite which is to die for and absolutely PERFECT to get ready in with a bridal party! The room was so clean and had many extra linens. We had two balconies... More

This has become our new place to stay for our annual anniversary trip to St. Augustine. It's a good fit for those who like the dining and nightlife right by the bay. Right next to OC White's and a short walk to all the other bayfront bars and dining. Not much pics on their web site made me nervous but... More

Great place to stay. Comfortable bed and pillows. Clean and ready to use. Windows opened toward the water - excellent breeze. Across the street from O.C. White...restaurant and bar. Excellent service. Will stay there in the future.

We stayed two nights for a wedding. The rooms were sweet and charming. Rooms 1,2 and 3 are directly above the pub downstairs. Some of of the early night family said the rooms was noisy at night. But their bathrooms were large with big tubs and sinks. Each room had a little fridge and microwave and big closet. Our room... More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with future guests of Bella Bay! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay. As you said, we are right in the middle of everything happening downtown, which can be disruptive if you're looking to go to sleep very early (St. Augustine does have noise ordinances, so it's not usually a problem for people who...

Excellent location, price, rooms, cleanliness. Downfall is its a little unconventional checking in at O.C. whites, so not very conventional as far services. Would highly recommend this hidden gem.

Thanks for the high recommendation! On your next visit, you'll find the check in process a little bit easier--as the new managers of Bella Bay, you can check in at our office (we give you directions in your confirmation letter), or you can opt to use a keybox on your room (we set the combination to your home address for...

Great location, nicely decorated, quaint, not super quiet (only because of the bar downstairs) but my fiance and I - LOVED IT! Beds were cozy and rooms were clean! What more could you ask for in the oldest city in America? We would DEF recommend to couples, friends, and family. Wonderful stay.

The good: nice views, walking distance to shopping and restaurants and many sites, bar downstairs with some dining and 50 beers on tap, parking included (great bonus for the area because finding parking is horrible), small fridge in room, large shower and good sized rooms for the old town area. The bad: expensive for what was offered. NO on site... More

Me and my mom live in Tallahassee and we decided spur of the moment to go down to St. Augustine for the weekend. We found the Bella Bay Inn, a lovely little place in the middle of the historic district, and booked a room.
