Good value, but pretty basic hotel

Nice location right on the beach, but the whole place had a bit of 'musty-beach' smell to it. The lobby was pretty basic and seemed like you could hose the whole place down to clean it out - maybe a necessity being that it is RIGHT on the beach.

right on the beach

Incredible beach-views from your own private balcony. Watch the surfers and dolphins play! Great free breakfast included. Walk outside from breakfast area out to nice sitting area or down to the beach.

Location and Service

Great location and wonderful & cooperative staff. That includes not only the front desk, but the folks who clean the rooms and attend to the grounds. If you want beach...and quiet, this is the place to go! We came to escape the winter in NH, and were not disappointed!! This isn't a fancy shmancy place like in a big city, with a ton of services and distractions, but it is a clean, comfortable and well kept place with all the rooms having an ocean view!! Don't expect a night life....all beaches. Staff is attentive to details and go out of their way to accommodate your needs. Plenty of parking! While no restaurant on site, they provide a breakfast with virtually everything you might want. This hotel is not surrounded by other hotels so you have plenty of room and you never feel crowded. If you are not a beach walker, a nice wide sidewalk on the street is where the bikers, runners and joggers are and you can go for miles!! Some really solid restaurants are within walking distance, or at best a couple of minutes car ride and National Park Service, Fort Pickens, is down the end of the island with some absolutely pristine beaches. If there is a downside.....they need more lounge chairs on the deck! The chair-umbrella rentals operating on the beach are a bit pricy. The other issue was the WiFi service was sketchy at best in the room, but was OK in the lobby. They do have a computer and printer for hotel guests. Overall..... we enjoyed our stay very much and would gladly return. This may be the best kept secret on Pensacola Beach. The best value I've seen in quite a while.

Love this place!

This was our second stay here and it will probably not be our last. The hotel is a little away from the main hotel strip so the beach area is not too crowded. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff were terrific. Best of all is that all the rooms have a balcony on the beach and are very clean. Our new favorite on Pensacola Beach.

A very nice hotel

The location is wonderful. The room was very clean and the view from the balcony was great. All rooms are gulf view. The continental breakfast was tasty and filling. The staff was friendly and very willing to suggest restaurants and activities. We would definitely stay there again.
