Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

Nestled in a prime spot, Bayfront Inn 5th Ave is lauded for granting easy access to shopping and picturesque scenery. The hotel's array of amenities, like the convenient parking, shuttle, and live music, generally receive positive remarks, though there are noted cleanliness concerns. While opinions on value and room quality vary, with some billing gripes and dated decor, others appreciate the reasonable pricing and cleanliness. The staff's friendliness is often highlighted, despite occasional lapses in service. An inviting atmosphere with cozy vibes and impressive views adds to the appeal, though expectations of professionalism sometimes fall short.

This hotel was in a perfect location right on the bay & about a 10 min walk or 2 minute drive to 5th Ave. There are a few food options right near it along with the picturesque bay full of boats & fishing charters you can rent. We enjoyed sitting on a bench near the bay at night. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The lobby was spotless & we saw them scrubbing the floors. It was great how accessible everything was. You get complimentary coffee in the morning & water & free beach chairs to take to the beach. A shuttle to/from Naples Pier beach would've been great but not essential since it's a 30 minute walk. The rooms are a little small but clean & the bed was very comfortable. You do get a mini bar size refrigerator to use & a Keurig. The pool was very clean & enjoyable. Just as a suggestion, the hot tub should be re-painted & the jets could be stronger. We also liked that the rooms were quiet & non smoking. We were surprised that there was no nightly entertainment as was advertised on the hotel website. We would've loved that. Yet, the Cabana bar had it on Sunday. The pina coladas at Bambu need to be improved. As a suggestion for safety, there should be a card swipe for both, the pool area entrances & to use the elevator to get to rooms. Otherwise, we would stay here again. Thank you!

Best view in Naples being high above the bay watching planes from Naples airport flying overhead as well as many boats in the bay.
The food was excellent along with the service from Kimberley.
They are very accommodating by splitting food orders, etc.
They have a large outdoor patio area without overcrowded seating
Great happy hour which usually includes $4.00 beers or well drinks and wine

I stayed here because I couldn't find similarly priced rooms in Ft. Myers due to Hurricane Ian. Late checkin. Michelle - front desk manager - gave me a warm welcome and immediately made me feel at home. After a pleasant and informative conversation with her, she ordered a late dinner for me from the property's restaurant. The room was clean, comfortable, exactly as depicted in their website. The outdoor restaurant/bar serves great breakfasts at reasonable prices, and offers a pretty view of a harbor with myriad sailboats and other watercraft, although in the AM, the sun's reflection off the water makes facing the harbor a rather blinding ordeal. Room quality/comfort, accessibility (right off US Hghwy 41), and friendly, efficient staff all met and exceeded my expectations. A good value. Recommended.

The room stank the sheets smelled as if they had not been washed for a very long time.
In this time of Covid spiking again you cannot take the risk in staying in a room that has not been cleaned properly.
We asked for another room and we’re told not possible we asked for room to be cleaned again housekeeping was not on duty it was only 3pm
We asked for a full refund and was told that was not possible either we grabbed out bags and left as we could not stay in a dirty smelly room
We paid $368 for a night in a room that was not fit to stay in and the manager could not have been more unhelpful.
We stayed at the Hilton which was more or less the same price and were very happy.
It was an expensive mistake and will never ever return to this disgusting hotel.
The photos on the website misrepresent the actual hotel

I check out today (Jan 8th/2023) from room # 419. About 5 hours later I called because I left my jacket forgotten inside the closet. I'm 100% sure of it because since I went only for 2 days/1 night, I didn't take any of my clothes out of my suitcase except the jacket which was on the top, which I remember I put it inside the closet the day before.

I havent't used the jacket, so I know I left it there. I immediately called the hotel and the woman at the front desk told me that no other passenger checked in at the same room after me, buy "unfortunately" my jacket was not there...

If you go to this property try not to forget anything because they don't return other people properties.

Besides this incident, rooms are really old, need an urgent update and the server at the breakfast took almost 20 minutes to bring us 2 coffees, she also forgot my husband's orange juice, my muffin and my fruit...bad service and very slow.

We also went to the bar the night before and the barman was very good, also were the drinks.

The good.. location. Location is excellent.
The bad…
Safety: Our room door did not lock. After several complaints and replies it would be fixed.. to no avail. Apparently this is common practice at the premises- (!!!???) as we met two other couples at the bar area and on separate occasions ho expressed the same frustration: and concerns.
When we brought the issue to the front desk, the reply was maintenance staff was not available on nights and weekends. (Bear in mind we checked in at 3/3:30pm checkin time) The very young front desk staff response was not to worry they don’t have any issues with rooms that don’t lock
. *As frequent travelers we have never received a reply of the sort. When we asked for a manager. Are The reply was managers (husband/wife) not in on weekend. Please note anyone can enter this building- you don’t need a key to access the elevators….
Cleanliness: Putrid. Will upload photos.. filthy bathrooms. Bed sheets were stained ! and stained smell years old.
Black mold in the bathroom in the caulking of shower the sink, vanity
. My husband went to CVS near by to purchase cleaner and paper towels and we cleaned the room. We did bring the black mold on the shower up to front desk and they said somebody would come by to address. No one came by to address.
We came close to considering buying new sheets but were told housekeeping would address. Our bed sheets were Not changed once during our 4 night stay, after multiple requests.
I seriously can’t believe the conditions and staff careless attitude.
The staff: restaurant staff was fun, fast and delightful.
The front desk staff… couldn’t care less of any situation good or bad. At one point the front desk agent was so careless that we thought we might be on candid camera… bizarre!!
Management, I had one interaction with a day manager and it immediately became evident the “top down” mentality and approach.
My husband rang the front desk so we could get some clean towels after returning from a day of excursion to shower and found our room not refreshed yet (4:15pm) we requested at least some clean towels. The response from the manager who we just met- was blatantly annoyed, zero eye contact and reply was he would contact house keeping. Housekeeping did not show…

Thank you for taking the time to share your disappointment and overall experience with us... I am extremely disappointed in the service you received from our team, and I apologize for that. Our front desk team at the time of your stay was brand new and obviously struggled to connect with your levels of service as well as mine. This is not how we create the environment and experience that we are used to. We recently have been taking the hotel through an extensive renovation, so the cleanliness issues surprise me and honestly is not we normally experience.... however, the issue is how we responded and the lack of care we provided. Please again accept my apologies and please reach out to me directly if in Naples again and I will gladly provide the experience you should have had as my guest!

Where to start….
I wanted to surprise my wife for our anniversary and booked the best room in this Hotel. The photos and reviews are great.
But the reality:
The room is small, smelly and outdated. The bathroom is small and the size of a closet. Looking at the photos this looks like the standard room but not the Luxury King as advertised.
Back at the Reception the General Manager explains to us that all Rooms are the same size and this room is $200 more since it is on the 3th floor. The bigger rooms are the Junior Suites. After nearly begging he shows us a Suite. Facing the Main-road, laud and filthy. Chips on the Floor, Stained bed cover. We are pointing this out to him but it’s like that’s good for Guests.

The Price we was willing to pay came over $435 for 1 night and was worst hotel we have seen in Florida!

We refused to stay in this dirty, smelly rooms and have left very disappointed the Property!

Went just a little further and got a Room cheaper, clean and good size and…., nice Staff!

Stay far away!!

Rooms booked via Expedia seems to be a bit suboptimal compared to „regular“ ones but are nevertheless worth the money. The location and amenities of the hotel are great. Leslie at the bar/restaurant deserves one extra point for her own. She is hardworking but such a good-hearted soul. From the very first moment you feel welcome because of her. The food and drinks (we‘ve had lunch and breakfast) are very good too.

My wife and I discovered Bayfront Inn about 2 years ago. We live on the East coast of Florida and have visited every 6 weeks since then. It is our happy place. The hotel is "quaint" (think in room a bit noisy AC units) and is kept very clean and up to date. The service is impeccable. Everyone from the front desk personnel to the General Manager, Matt, to the food and beverage manager, Richard and the food servers Annalisa, Kelly, Maura, Josh, Danny, and the rest of the staff will do anything they can to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. It is 5-star service at 3-star prices.
New food Menu, beautiful outdoor eating, and a view of the Bay make this a destination not to be missed while in Naples.
