The BEST WESTERN BAYFRONT INN is located in the heart of the historic district on the beautiful Matanzas Bay. This 1950 historic hotel conversion of 59 comfortable petite and cozy rooms while still offering all of our signature amenities and exceptional first in class service. The hotel is equipped to meet the expectations of our guests. Personal attention, friendly faces and a quaint family atmosphere is the foundation of what we strive to provide our guests. Having the ideal location within walking distance of all major attractions in the historical district, the BEST WESTERN Bayfront Inn has much to offer. The BEST WESTERN Bayfront Inn invites you to see the Spanish Quarter, a restored eighteenth century section of old St. Augustine. Here, Spanish soldiers and settlers lived with their families close to Spain's Florida fortress, the Castillo de San Marcos. Explore the Spanish Quarter and all of downtown St. Augustine, all within walking distance from your door step! We are convenient to the many sites, sounds and tastes of the nation's oldest city. For simple sightseeing we even offer sightseeing tickets and Old Town Trolley pickup right on site. In addition to telephones, wireless Internet access, and cable television, all rooms also contain refrigerators and microwaves for your convenience. While you are here, casually walk down narrow brick streets to quaint taverns, restaurants, shops and balconied Spanish homes. Watch the fishing fleet as it puts to sea each morning. The old fortress, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, is virtually next door, as are tennis courts, an ice cream parlor, coffee shops, restaurants and historic attractions.

unhappy

I have booked here in the past when it was the Moneray Hotel and received great rooms. I book through you and we received a room in a dark back corner no view and a loud bar outside our room across the thin street. We booked 2 nights and only stayed one and forwent the cost as we were unhappy with the room. Apparently if I had booked through Best Western at full cost I would have received a much better room. Live and learn. I will not book through orbiz again if this is the rooms they receive.

Quick getaway unplanned

Hotel is very nice and clean. The employees at front desk were very helpful when we needed to add a room for another couple that came with us on last notice. There was a loud banging at 2 a.m. that woke us up, but was some unruly guests that were removed as quickly as they could. Thought it to be a bit pricy for just a basic hotel, but would definitely stay again.

Birthday Getaway

Great location. Parking could be better but they do have someone helping you find a place. Our room was very clean & spacious. Somewhat loud but you're in the middle of quite a few restaurants & bars so if you can't sleep, it's your own fault for staying here.

Perfect location!!!

I stayed here before when it was the Monterey Inn. Best Western took over in November of 2012. It's been remodeled inside and out. Awesome location, right in the middle of everything. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a central location in the heart of downtown Saint Augustine. Parking is limited and you have to pay $7 per day but it's worth it!

Monday to Friday great

Our stay Thursday night was great, however we did not sleep well Friday night due to an influx of weekend revelers who were in and out of their rooms all night, sitting outside smoking and talking until the early hours of the morning. St Augustine is quaint but very touristy place and so this can be expected to some extent and due to the value and location, the Bayfront Inn was a perfect crash pad, eventually, for the party goers.

If you want a authentic Florida experience, make the short drive across the bridge to Aunt Kate;s for dinner.

Christmas Holiday

Room was great, large with window overlooking the river. Everyone was very helpful, we had wanted to change to an upstairs room and that was quickly done. In walking distance of everything as well as access to the trolley.

Don't stay here

The staff isn't helpful and rude. You can only have one car and you have to pay for parking. Room is tiny and bathroom is awful. The shower was an insert and when you pull on the handle to turn the water on it comes out of the wall. It's like a motel 6 that they put a best western sign on and charge you a bunch of cash. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.
