I really enjoy the golf coast and it's white beaches. This hotel has to have the biggest beach and some of the best views. The Room is clean, breakfast is adequate. Service was appreciated and prompt. Even the beds were comfortable. But, it's all about the beach. The community at Pensacola Beach is small but this hotel is far enough... More

We stayed for a few days during the Thanksgiving holiday. All of the staff were very kind! We enjoyed finding seashells during our walk along the beach. Be sure to ask the front desk for a pail & shovel before you head out to find your shells. Each morning there was a warm bountiful breakfast! In the lobby there was... More

Stunning views, friendly staff and beach access - perfect for a beach holiday! Rooms were large and clean. A basic continental breakfast was provided. We were in a corner room and it was quiet. It was a short 5 minute drive to a variety of local restaurants.

It is sad to the staff and me that you did not have a most enjoyable stay with us. We will review our ads and see what we can do to keep them from misleading and disappointing... More

Great room, staff, pool, beach, breakfast. A great value. Love the pancake machine too. We will definitely be back. In fact we're planning a trip there very very soon. Can't wait to relax on the beach.

This is not a five star luxury hotel but it totally met our needs for a seaside stay. The location was wonderful, just across a short boardwalk and you are on a wonderful beach. Beautiful sand. No roads to cross. View from the room was great, nice balcony. Everything very clean. Breakfast was simple but included in the price. Staff... More

We booked this hotel for a long weekend family trip based on reviews and it turned out fantastic. Traveling with children can be challenging at times and having a nice, quiet place to sleep is key.

This is our favorite place to stay in Pensacola Beach! It's close to dining and attractions like Ft. Pickens civly war fort. If you stay here you need to see that. The staff at this hotel is very helpful and courteous. Rooms are clean and the complimentary breakfast is awesome. Highly recommend this hotel.
