We stayed in the Ponce De Leon Room. If you're 6ft tall, getting in this bed would be a breeze. If you're 5' 6" its a challenge. There were stairs on one side of this massive king size bed but only one side and my sister and I were not always getting in and out of bed at the same time and climbing over each other didn't seem an option. Then there's the bed frame.....we ran into several times causing quite the bumps and bruises. We ended up padding the footboard so as not to injure ourselves further. The TV channel guide was not accurate and there were about 20 less channels. Not to mention that the TV sat to low for this massive bed height. Temperature control in room was unavailable but we did find a fan in the armoire which helped keep things cool. Breakfast on the other hand was great, including the service and friendly staff. The cocktail hour and stroryteller (Lynn) was enjoyable. Tasty hor d'ourves, wine and beer. Lastly, the parking was hit or miss. Try parking on the street to the rear of the B&B- we had much success. Otherwise, you had to pay the meters or walk from their lot a few blocks a way.

Sorry it's taken us awhile to respond to your review, but thank you for the constructive criticism. We have definitely taken your comments into account, and are happy to say that we have made some extensive changes to the room you stayed in. The Ponce de Leon now has a new bed, which is low enough that steps aren't needed and makes watching TV more comfortable. We are also now using a new cable company, and have lots of channels to choose from. And lastly, the Ponce de Leon now has a personal air conditioner in the room, in addition to the houses' central air. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we hope that your positive experience at breakfast and with our staff will be enough to convince you to give us a second chance. Again, thank you so much for your comments and it was a pleasure having you stay with us. Hope to see you again soon, Cheers!

Everything was perfect! Our hosts went out of there way to make sure that we were pleased.

Room Tip: We loved the private entrance/exit, but we will likely request an "in-house" room next time because we love to enjoy the decor of the home.

Just came back from a weekend stay in the Minocran room at Wescott – amazing! Joy, Andrew, and staff exceeded every need and welcome you with a cold, frosty beverage of your choice. The room was very clean, quiet, spacious, modernized yet romantic, luxurious, and had nice dark drapes to keep the light out if you want to sleep in. The bed was a perfect mix of soft and firm, and we’ve got to find out what brand it is so we can buy one at home! The food is 5-star and I highly recommend ordering the morning mimosas – the pitcher was huge and my guy and I had at least 3-4 refills each! We’re already planning our next visit - Thanks for the amazing memories, Wescott!!!

Room Tip: Visit the Bayfront Wescott website to view and select rooms - they provide excellent pictures and 360 views to help you decide!

Joy and staff were delightful and attentive to any need! From greetings with a glass of wine to conscierge services, making reservations for dinner, caring for parking ( a real plus in St Augustine on the weekend!) Close enough to walk and be in the heart of town, but on the edge enough to enjoy the quiet bayfront view from the porch. Quaint, not huge, but comfortable rooms with plenty of privacy (stayed in carriage house). No, there's not a pool but, in room hot tub is a plus. And breakfast was delish! Thanks!

Room Tip: Carriage house has more privacy.

My husband and I are from Wisconsin. We look foward to our vacations in Florida twice a year. The highlight of our vacation in always the weekend we spend in St. Augustine at the Bayfront Westcott House. Everything from the beautiful rooms to the awesome view of the Bay is unique and impressive. We really appreciate the cocktail hour and the delicious breakfast on the porch in the morning. I can't say enough about how much we enjoy our stay at the Westcott House!
