My husband and I started off our honeymoon in St. Augustine and stayed a night at the Bayfront Marin. When we arrived, we had to circle around and around, waiting on a spot in the loading zone to open up, which was very frustrating. We got checked in and were able to park. We were taken to our room, the... More

We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We're sorry about the initial parking problem--we have two spaces right in front of the inn for unloading, but sometimes people (not inn guests) ignore the signs and park in them anyway!!

The Inn is gorgeous and meticulously kept up. Our room was beautiful, private, and romantic. I highly recommend anyone thinking of staying in St. Augustine to check out the Bayfront Marin House. The staff is warm and thoughtful and the amenities like breakfast in bed and cocktail hour are a major plus!

We chose to stay at the Bayfront Marin House but unfortunately, they suffered a fire and were forced to close temporarily.

Please accept our apologies again for the inconvenience that night! As you said, we're only closed temporarily--the fire was very confined, and really the worst issue was the water damage from the firemen (although we're not complaining about that--they did a great job!!!)

After driving more than two and a half hours through a torrential downpour, we arrived in St Augustine.

Our week-end retreat was special and complete thanks to everyone at the Marin House. How unique it is to be served by employees that care and let you know that you are special.

We recently had them handle our wedding, and it was beautiful. It was also quite a good deal compared to similar services in the area. We opted for the beach wedding and the setup was perfect.

Found this inn through tripadvisor. It was an enjoyable stay and the property is beautiful. Its a bit of a walk into town for the nearest trolley stop so I would not recommend this to anyone who has challenges with distance. The parking is quite far from the inn as well, so definitely use the drop off parking out front.... More
