I loved my stay at The Bella Bay. The room was excellent with a great view of St. Augustine. I enjoyed the comfortable bed, nice bed linens and lush towels. My room was beautifully decorated and the location is perfect.

The owner of Bella Bay was so accommodating and welcoming! The office manager called me to explain where to check in and explained parking. The suite was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. This was my first stay at Bella Bay and will not be my last. Perfect location and you can look out to the marina and walk across in...

The advertising for the Bella Bay Inn indicated that all suites had bay views and balconies. This 5 suite hotel does not have an elevator. Somewhat difficult for two seniors to haul our bags & navigate 3 flights of stairs to the 'Crows Nest.' Although our room was nicely appointed (and clean), our view through 1 of 2 small windows...

Charming 5 room hotel has tastefully decorated large, very clean rooms with nice bathroom, lush towels, soft linens, small fridge and coffeemaker. All rooms have a bay view and some have a balcony. Hotel offers parking a couple blocks away, but you'll enjoy the walk - that is IF you need your car. Centrally located in the historic district within...

We loved Bella Bay and will definitely plan to return. Conveniently located close to St George and the historical district. Our room was extremely clean with super soft linens and towels. Our room had a small fridge and coffeemaker. Parking is off site; but most people visit St. Augustine to walk the city anyway so this is no big deal....

We got a great deal to stay here and wanted something located within walking of the historic area. In that regard, Bella Bay Inn was perfect. A short walk to a trolley, St George pedestrian mall and all that that has to offer. The room was clean and provided a complimentary morning basket of fruit and bread. The cleaning staff...

We loved our recent stay at Bella Bay Inn. We received a phone call a few days prior to check-in explaining parking and how to get our room key. Staff on the phone and who came to our room to clean were very friendly and helpful with our questions on where to eat and what to do. We loved the...

Great location with a spacious,comfortable and clean room. Checking in was a little difficult since there is no office on premises. We were lucky enough to encounter the parking lot attendant who told us we had to call a phone number to get our check-in instructions. The procedure is that each room has a key lockbox at it’s entrance and...
