Verified Reviews of Best Western Bayfront

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Handicap room with no room for wheelchair !?!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
First let me say that the room was very clean, staff extremely pleasant and if there wasn't a need for wheelchair access the review would be excellent. The room was small and not really accessible for someone in a wheelchair. Bathroom did have the handicap rails in the tub and toilet area and did have a handicap chair for use in tub. Sink was not low enough for person to use while in the chair. The beds were set high, again not easy for someone in a wheelchair to access and there was not room between beds to maneuver the chair. This hotel is older and right in the middle of everything in St. Augustine, again if you don't need room for a wheelchair then you will be satisfied with the accommodations.

"Sleeps two, room for one."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel room was clean and the king size bed was very comfortable. The remodeled bathroom was nicely done, just small, as is the room. We had planned on playing cards but there was only one chair and no table. The closet was very difficult to get our clothes into due to the chest in front of it. The TV had three white spots in the screen when turned on. The hotel is located in a great spot to walk around the downtown area and that is a plus.

"Very Nice Rooms"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The Bayfront has been remodeled and the rooms are very nice, beautifully decorated with sparkling, modern bathrooms. Plan to leave your vehicle and Uber or walk around town because parking is at a premium.

"Extremely Disappointing!"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Though clean, the room was EXTREMELY small. The bathroom was so small our knees touched the wall and door..the shower did not have even a light, let alone it was probably 2X2 stall to try and take a shower and worn in the exterior area. There was no carpet on the bedroom area and since it was a cold the floor was a real awaken er each morning! Upon registering we had to pay an additional $22 for parking and (which was NOT stated when booking) and had to park ..in the pouring rain. far from our upstairs tiny room. Returning to the hotel at about 9:30 pm there were NO parking areas and found ourselves squeezed in an unimaginable line of vehicles on top of each other! The saddest comment is that in all our stays with the best western and thinking this Bayfront Inn Best Western would be lovely, it couldn't have been worse! Think three times before booking here.
