“Great Hotel, Great Location”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We just spent a week at the Bayfront Inn in August, 2013. It is a small hotel, but a wonderful place to stay. The weekend brunch is not only very tasty, but it is not expensive and the setting is superb looking over the marina. Walking to Tin City gives you a variety of restaurants and shops to view. The area surrounding the hotel also gives you walking distance to other restaurants. The hotel room furnishings are top-notch even though the rooms are not large. You can rent umbrellas and sand chairs for the asking free of charge! Would love to go back in the near future.

We stayed here for a week and it was beautiful hotel and wonderful experience! The hotel was extremely clean, our rooms were spacious (we had a king room), beautiful bathroom - it looked like a "Tommy Bahama" hotel! The pool and spa area was perfect as was all the facilities. The location was awesome! We could walk to Tin City and we even walked into "town" - down 5th Street for dinner and shopping. We would stay here again!

Very nice stay. The service and rooms were very nice. If I could recommend they should have ceiling fans in the room or better ac. Otherwise excellent location and $5 water taxi is an added plus. Tin city right across the street. We did the segway tour and Shawn was an excellent tour guide. The bar staff at the hotel was very friendly and assisted us with any questions we had.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Ceiling fans would be a nice feature to add in the future. Its great that you enjoyed our location and had such a good time with Shawn on your Segway tour. Friendly staff is our most important feature, I'm so glad you found our bartenders friendly and accommodating. We hope you will come and stay with us again.

We have stayed at the Bayfront Inn on 5th for many years (around 17!) and have always been impressed with all aspects of the services offered. Infact, we've felt a little selfish in wanting to keep the place a hidden secret until now!
We now feel compelled to write a review following our most recent stay between the 9th and 24th August 2013. Special circumstances came into play for us due to a recent Achilles tendon rupture on my right leg which meant that I couldn't drive during the vacation as would normally be the case. We were a little apprehensive as to how we would manage but need not have worried due to the outstanding care and attention which we received from Manager Barry Higgins and all of his staff!
Having stayed at luxurious hotels around the world, we can honestly say that the Bayfront Inn is the one for which we have the most respect and fondness - it really does tick all of the boxes when considering all aspects of holiday requirements, i.e. fantastic location, cleanliness of rooms and pool, friendliness of staff, quality of breakfast dining and excellent facilities.
As previously stated, we cannot over emphasise the amount of care and kindness which Barry Higgins offered us during our stay, helping us to get around the area in the Hotel Courtesy Bus and recommending taxi firms etc. We are already planning our next trip!!
Many thanks to you all from David and Judy, UK.

Room Tip: Bayview rooms offer beautiful views.

We have stayed at this place a number of times. You could not ask for a better location and it is ideally located, within walking to a number of places.
The staff was extremely cordial. The drinks and food were very good and the view is wonderful.
I agree with the review of luckylulu, "who designed that bathroom?" But what I really disliked was the lack of a small fridge. There was room in the large dresser holding the TV. We had leftover from some of our meals, which we ended up throwing away. Also, my husband is diabetic and we like to keep juice and water with us at all times.

Thank you for being so faithful to us. In regards to our bathrooms we are simply a small boutique hotel and if a guest is more accustomed to a chain hotel experience then there may be certain characteristics about us that they may not be happy with. Interestingly enough although we do get some comments on guest room size including bathroom size and generally most guests comment that the size is adequate, and some even say that its spacious, so apparently this is a very personal topic. I am very sorry that you were disappointed by your bathroom size and or configuration. In regards to the mini fridge we do offer complementary mini fridges and microwaves to all of our guests so the next time you stay with us just call down and request one from the front desk and with in a few minutes one will be delivered to your guest room. Im so glad that you enjoyed our location, found our food good, and our staff friendly. Hope you will continue to come and stay with us.

I am very excited that we are now also operating a full service boat rental business right here at the hotel. Bayfront Rentals is located at the hotels marina and offers pontoon boats, deck boats, kayaks, paddle boards and even bicycles, all at very reasonable rental rates. What makes this so exciting for me is that we can now create special packages that include any of these items combined with room accommodations and even dining. The response has been overwhelmingly good. Im so glad that you were able to take advantage of this offer and that you had such an enjoyable stay with us. Glad you enjoyed the water taxi which is always fun, as well as our convenience to downtown Fifth Avenue shops, dining, and beaches. We hope to see you again soon.

We had bought a Groupon and so we went to the Bayfront Inn. Our room was very clean however, it was very small and the bathroom was extremely small and not convenient. The walls are thin so you hear everything going on in the halls. The pool area was very nice, however after you went to the pool, you then found out from other guests that you had to go to the front desk to get towels. The front desk always had a line of people waiting...they needed more help. We tried the restaurant for lunch and it was not very good...although the margaritas were GREAT!! Parking was easy and not an extra charge. Wi-Fi was included as well. The staff was very nice. Next time we are in Naples, we would try other hotels.

Room Tip: We were in room 222 and the AC was not very cold.

Im so sorry we were not the right hotel choice for you! It sounds like you were just expecting a different type of property. We are a very small, very personal boutique hotel, located on beautiful Naples Bay and within walking distance to downtown Fifth Avenue and even the beach area. Im so sorry you were disappointed that you had to pick up your pool towels at the front desk and that there was a line, we must have been having a very busy weekend. Im very sorry that you did not enjoy your lunch in our restaurant and if you would email me the details of your stay I will certainly remove the charges from your bill. Im glad that you found our parking easy and our staff nice...and our margaritas GREAT! Please email me the details of your stay at generalmanager@bayfrontinnnaples.com Best wishes to you in your future travels.
