I'm currently here - it's almost 1am and the bar/club next door is so loud that none of our family is able to sleep. I went down to the lobby to see if they can move us, but unfortunately they are full. They have promised to move us to a quieter room in the morning....let's see. It's honestly probably the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

I started this review as 4 stars because the rooms really are outdated but it is the oldest city in the country so I suppose it goes with the theme. It is one of my best experiences traveling. We checked in and we were thrilled with the location. The room we were assigned was off to the side with no...

We loved this motel! Completely remodeled! Perfect for a dog since we were on the ground floor. The location was in the middle of everything so we pushed our senior dog around in the stroller and see the sights.

The Best Western Bayfront offers close proximity to the Spanish Quarter of St. Augustine and has wonderful views of the fort and waterfront. I have been staying at this Best Western randomly for business and pleasure for the past 4 years. (probably about 50 nights) I have seen the nice improvements being done to the rooms. Although some of the...

The only issue I had was the bathroom had mild and mildew in and around the shower. The bed was on the harder side. But the location was great and the service was excellent. The room is on the smaller size but it has everything you need.

The hotel is located within walking distance to so much, it was the perfect choice! We arrived early and were able to check in and leave the car until it was time to leave. The front desk made us feel very welcome and our hotel neighbors were friendly. Quiet sleeping and clean room. Lack of breakfast isn't a problem as...

Thank you for your kind review. We strive to make each and every guest happy during their stay. Our Bayfront Suite has perhaps the most beautiful view in the city. Very few get to experience it, but those who do agree that it is breathtaking. I will let Briar and Arynne know they are doing a great job! See you...

Shower is small and shower head is meant for a larger shower so if you are under 6'5 or so you will be sprayed in the face your entire shower. They should definitely make a change. Otherwise comfy stay

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, I don't think there's very much we can do about the height of our showers. But we do have some newly renovated walk-in showers that are a bit roomier. When you come back and stay with us, please let us know and we will make that happen. I hope we see you soon.
