My wife and I aren't picky at all when it comes to hotel rooms, all that we ask is that it is (1) clean, and (2) odor free. I give the Bayfront a C for #1, and a D for #2. The musty, mildew stench of the room was very overwhelming. I was awakened every hour or so by my wife spraying my daughter's Hollister Body Mist in the air, just so she could bear to breathe. On a good note, the location is excellent, close to everything, however, I am pretty confident that the homeless people use the corner accross the street as their community urinal..wow does that stink. The staff was friendly and the pool was decent for a swim.

Good location, but that is about it. We have stayed there twice and both rooms smelled mildew-y. Not worth the price in my opinion.

Hotel was so so on clean, don't look under the sofa. The location was great. A / C is set in the day time not to get colder than 75. We arrived @ 03:00 check in time-- Room Temp was 77 it did not get any cooler. We had 5 people getting ready for a dinner @ 05:00 it was still 77 when we left for dinner. At night time the A / C got cooler, but in the day time was HOT.!!! The room next to ours went and purchased a fan.

Our stay at the Bayfront Inn was short and sweet! The staff was friendly, accommodating, and offered great suggestions for dining and sightseeing. Our king room offered plenty of space. The historic building is charming but the rooms are traditional decor, nothing that stands out. The only disappointment is that the property is across the street from the water not on it as photos suggest. That said, there is a lovely common deck that offers wonderful views. Our room was on the ground floor and I would certainly insist on the second floor for a future visit -- better views of the bay. The pool is small but refreshing. Continental breakfast choices were limited but sufficed. The hot oatmeal a nice touch. The property also is perfectly situated on the edge of historic St. Augustine. We would stay her again as a couple or family. All-in-all a good experience.

Stayed in the Bayfront Inn for 3 nights after a trip to Titusville to see the Space Shuttle launch. St Augustine seems to be a little pocket that doesn't feel like the rest of Florida. The hotel is clean, loads of parking, staff were very friendly.

Hotel is 5 minutes walk to restaurants, bars & shops and the view from our room was out onto the marina. There's a terrace beside the pool thats nice to sit on in the evenings.

We really enjoed our stay at the hotel and highly recommend it . Excellent location, closed to everything and the view of the bay was awesome. Staff very freindly and corteus. Rooms very cleaned and tastefully decorated. The hotel offer a continental breakfast that it is O.K. but not microwave available in the breakfast area. it would ve very helpful to have one. No doubt we will stay at the Bayfront Inn again on our next trip to St. Augustine.
