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.... More

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... More

Great location, right on the bay. We we able to park our car & walk everywhere. We found the staff friendly. Highly recommend. View out of our crow's nest window. We enjoyed the yummy breakfast basket delivered right to our door in the morning.

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... More

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... More

Our room was comfortable, well equipped, and within walking distance of everything we wanted to see and do in St. Augustine. Parking is right outside the door in a safe area. Great restaurants and pubs close by and marina is directly across the street.

THE BAD: No one is in the building at any time: No receptionist, no permanent hotel personnel...No one to help you for anything. No one to greet you. No one to give you your keys. No to explain anything. Your key is in a lockbox (we didn't have the code). Very confusing. We were lucky there was a person cleaning... More

I stayed at this hotel December 24-26th. The first night, the AC did not work. I had it set at 72 and it was 80. They fixed it the next morning after I called. That same day (Christmas day) no one came to clean the room or provide clean towels. When I reached out to management to let them know... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We’re sorry that you didn’t enjoy your stay but there are a couple of things I’d like to clarify for our future guests.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for just one night on a saturday. We really have mixed feelings about the place. First, the location is perfect: close to historic downtown, you can walk your way very easily to all the spots. The free parking lot is very convenient. Second, the room itself (we stayed in room #1) is... More

We're sorry that you didn't completely enjoy your stay. Our rooms are right in the heart of downtown on the water, and--as you said--downtown can be noisy, especially on a Saturday night. Bella Bay is a great choice for people who want to be in the middle of things. Our location is much quieter during the week, as well as... More

This unique little Inn on the Bayfront in St. Augustine is truly a gem! My husband and I had the pleasure of staying there this past weekend and were delighted with both the location and the ambience. We had a charming room overlooking the marina and were treated to a beautiful view of both the bridge of lions and the... More
