Best Western Bayfront
Ranked #34 of 78 Hotels in St. Augustine
Reviewed November 4, 2013

I love visiting the Best Western Bayfront Inn annually. The rooms are updated and always clean. The staff is friendly and professional. The Hotel is on the intercoastal water way with a beautiful view. I always enjoy my morning walk along the water in the morning. Crucial café is a coffee shop behind the hotel in a historical building that has awesome coffee and fresh made pastries. You are in the heart of the city and can spend the day walking, shopping and eating and close enough to run back to the room if your needed to. Great Western Bayfront is my Hotel destination every year! Kim.

First visit to St. Augustine. The Bayfront Inn is in a great location with a great view. Decor is a little dated and worn and the bathroom is really small, but the bed was extra comfortable. Mary's right next door had the best western omelet I've ever had. The White Lion was great for drinks, and Catch 27 has delicious crab cakes.

Great location. Didn't move the car for entire stay! Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Great vacation venue. Walking distance to everything! The staff was friendly helpful and ready to help make your stay perfect. Little balcony overlooking the bay for our morning coffee was perfect!

These rooms are way overpriced probably because of the location. Our room smelled, could not get wifi to work. Lamps missing light bulbs, poor a/c. I'd recommend the Hilton for a comparable price. There is no restaurant or bar on site, although you are in the heart of the bayfront and have many choices within walking distance.

Thank you Deborah, for taking the time to write us this review. It provides with valuable feedback that we take to heart, which allows us to improve on our product. Thank you for mentioning the location of our property. We are planning to replace all room A/C and Wi-Fi access points in the next few months so maybe next time when you come to Saint Augustine, the small things you mentioned will be taken care of. I really hope we can accommodate you in the future.
