  • Live outdoor entertainment during the summer
  • Free Wi-Fi in the lobby, and free wired Internet in the rooms

Bottom Line

The Bayfront Inn has a quaint and convenient location on 5th Avenue, near shops and restaurants and overlooking Naples Bay. The 91-room hotel is a step above some nearby hotels in a similar price range: It has stylish rooms with classic decor and modern bathrooms, a secluded tree-surrounded pool area with a nice water feature, and numerous rooms with attractive bay views. However, the pool is small, there is no fitness center, and only suites have mini-fridges and microwaves.

Oyster Hotel Review


Overlooking Naples Bay and situated on shop-lined 5th Avenue

Map of Bayfront Inn 5th Ave

One of the most sophisticated towns in southwestern Florida, Naples is a golfer's paradise, with more than 80 wonderful golf courses around the area. It's a sprawling town so visitors will probably need to have a car to move around, but the downtown area has an upscale shopping district, a few art galleries, and a wide array of restaurants for strolling. However, there’s little to do besides going to the beach, and there is no nightlife whatsoever -- it’s more of a retirement community than a party spot or a place to go with the kids.

  • 10-minute drive to Naples Municipal Airport
  • 50-minute drive to Southwest Florida International Airport
  • 5 to 10-minute walk to various shops, restaurants, and art galleries along 5th Avenue
  • 6-minute walk to Downtown Naples (Olde Naples)
  • 5-minute drive to the Naples Pier, a great spot to watch the sunset
  • 6-minute drive to Naples Nature Center, complete with hiking trails
  • 6-minute drive to Naples Zoo
  • 11-minute drive to Naples Museum of Art
  • 15-minute drive to Vanderbilt Beach
  • 16-minute drive to Naples National Golf Club
