overall good hotel

Experience was great, people were great but if I'm gonna spend almost 275 for one night I really expected a little more. Front staff was more than helpful and the gulf facing rooms are great.

Very impressed

Beautiful hotel, each room has a balcony and gulf view, extremely nice stuff, nice room with a fridge, nice breakfast, tea/coffee/ oranges round the clock. A little further away from the restaurants/shops, lacks indoor pool and jacuzzi.

Hotels don't get much better!!

From the time we walked in the door till the day we left we were made to feel very special!!! Location is GREAT,rooms are very comfy & clean!! Vivian took care of our room & left us not 1 thing to complain about!!! We were on the 7th floor, view was spectacular. Breakfast is included every morning & again left nothing to complain about!! Would like to acknowledge Tess & Tammy who kept everything extremely clean & organized. My husband has had 2 strokes, they were always there to assist him if necessary. Do not hesitate to stay at this facility-well worth the price paid!!! I know we will back!!!

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.

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.

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.

Great location/nice staff

Hotel located right on the beach and all balconies face the ocean. Rooms were large, clean and quiet. Views were incredible. Staff is very helpful. Needed a local mechanic for a brake job before driving home and sent me to exactly the right guy. Warning though, very strict no smoking policy. Overall 5 stars.
