Best Western Bayfront
Ranked #39 of 78 Hotels in St. Augustine
Reviewed February 7, 2013

The room was very nice but our room backed onto Charlotte street and you could hear the music from the bar outside which went onto 2am. Then early in the morning as the stairs from the first floor rooms were just outside our door we got the noise from people leaving early.

This is an older motel which has been refurbished as well as possible and is comfortable. The bathrooms are quite tiny but modern and clean. The location is right across the street from the water, just a block from the old fort. You can easily walk all over the historic district from here. The staff is friendly and there is off street parking. We loved getting up in the morning, looking out front to see the water and boats. They do not have breakfast onsite, but there is a restaurant and coffee house nearby. For us, it was the best possible choice.

Central Location right across from Castillo de San Marcos, restaurants all around this being the reason why we picked it. Room are renovated but those beds... OMG! Hard as a rock!! I had back pains from it. Parking is a little confusing and crowded but manageable. Overall Good.
