We stopped here for one night on in Aug 2014 on the way to take my daughter to college. Did not have a reservation but just drove by about 8PM on a Sunday night. The clerk could not have been more helpful--extra towels and pillows for the picky husband, fresh decaf coffee for me and lots of suggestions about where we go close to get something to eat. $144 including tax for a huge room with 2 queen sized beds and a great bathroom. Monday we asked if we check out on time but could keep our car there until 2 PM so we could walk around town a little. Again, most helpful And such a great location--right by the historic area, on the water. Already planning to do back for a romantic weekend. Did nos stay for breakfast, so can't speak to the criticisms from earlier guests.

Stayed here one night whilst touring the area. Hadnt reserved and turned up on spec. Lovely looking room but smelt damp like fusty laundry. Went to the lobby for breakfast the next morning. 4 tables for the whole place to eat at actually in hotel reception. Not exactly relaxing as you felt obliged to eat and get out to make way. ALSO i can pay $2 at Dennys and eat off ceramic plates and mugs. I dont expect to pay $130 for a b&b room to get paper plates and plastic cutlery!

This is a charming, clean inn one street away from St. George St and right across the street from the bay. It has been recently renovated and updated. It's the center of historic downtown and within walking distance to a lot of great restaurants. You can walk everywhere from here!

Room Tip: 2nd floor has better views of the bay.

Whenever my boyfriend and i go to st Augustine, we stay at the bayfront inn. The price is very reasonable for the fantastic location. The location is perfect. It is a 5 min walk from st. George street. It is a 2 min walk from A1A, lions bridge, and Aviles Street (great food). There are no bars immediately next door, so there are no loud bands keeping you up at night. The rooms are updated, comfy beds and pillows, hair dryer, and safe area. They have a nice, updated pool area too. The only reason I didn't give them 5 out of 5 is because the room smelled slightly of mildew, like they had a leak. There was even a bucket of moisture collector rocks in our room. It has not smelled like that in the past, so I just chalk it up to an unfortunate accident this time. We'll continue to stay there.

The location is perfect, and renovations beautiful. The whole experience in such an amazing motel was worth the price. This Inn is St Augustine accommodations to me while there and will continue unless one of the many great bed-n-breakfast pulls me away.

Clean, comfortable, perfect location to downtown for walking purposes.

Location could not have been better, I love boats, and this is across from the marina. You can walk across Bridge of Lions to even more restaurants. Coquina walls are thick and we had to sit outside for Wi Fi to work, but what a view. Room was clean and comfortable, and reasonably priced. Breakfast was great and appreciated, there is really nowhere to eat breakfast in St. Augustine. But view was awesome!

I was forced to cancel a reservation at this motel due to a medical emergency. They had the right to charge my credit card for the entire two-day stay. I spoke to the night clerk, Kelly, and the hotel manager, Dee, and they cheerfully canceled my reservation without penalty. This is what customer service is all about.
