My husband and I were in Pensacola to visit his brother. January in N Florida can be cool, so we weren't expecting sunshine, much less a beautiful beach vacation. This hotel was so nice..right on the white sand beach, room spacious and clean with a gulf view balcony. The staff was so kind and friendly. Tess made us a great...

Stayed here on a overnight after being in the car for about 12 hours. The place was wonderful. The staff was super friendly and the location was amazing. We were able to walk on the beach and experience the sunset and sit on our balcony to wind down. The beds were super comfy and were felt well rested to continue...

We followed our Trip Advisor 's advice to this Beachfront Hotel and it was fabulous! We chose a suite on the 8th floor. It was more than comfortable. The big secret included in these hotel suites is the big master bath, large bedroom, large sitting area, 2 bathrooms and a kitchenette with a great balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico....

I only stayed the night for a short business trip, but the hotel made the evening hours feel like a mini-vacation. Fabulous gulf views with a private balcony (great for coffee at sunrise), spacious, comfortable rooms with ample occasional chairs, desk, and small bar for keeping snacks, crisp fridge, comfy bed and a truly friendly greeting upon check in. Only...

Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast offered was one of the best hotel breakfasts I've had. Views from the room were absolutely beautiful and the hotel itself had a good selection of amenities.

We have been to pensacola beach many times and stayed at the Margaritaville. This hotel is under renovations so we needed to find some were else to stay. This is a nice hotel but not on the level of the Margaritaville. Rooms are clean and comfortable all rooms face the ocean which is nice. Beds were comfortable. Staff friendly. Breakfast...

We took a last minute trip after the Christmas holiday. We had no plans and no reservations. We stayed in a different hotel/area for each of our 4 nights. Now, although all of our accommodations met our needs, by far our favorite was here. It's the little things. All rooms are beach front. The staff was friendly and nice and...

Our room was clean, the bed was very comfy and the views can not be beat from the balconies! There was construction and maintenance, which meant the heated pool was closed. It was off season, and understandable. The breakfast was well maintained and the staff was excellent and kept everything cleaned and stocked. We look forward to returning to this...

Thank you. Beach front hotels are a challenge to maintain and we schedule most of our major maintenance projects in the winter months & work hard with the contractors to avoid disrupting our guests' stay. We only had to close the pool for a few days and are sorry it was during your stay. I am so happy that you...

We stayed for 5 nights and had a overall good stay. The location is excellent and we were able to see dolphins few times from the hotel balcony. The hotel was going through some renovation work and we had ropes hanging from the balcony for couple of days. That was the only thing we're disappointed. I complained about it to...

Was decent despite the off-season maintenance activities, which made mornings rather noisy. Beds are probably due for replacement... but overall no major complaints. Staff was friendly and attentive. Would have given 4/5 if either of those issues (worn out beds and maintenance activities) weren't there. It was clean and I wouldn't hesitate to try it again during the spring/summer.

It is great to read that you will not hesitate to return and I hope that you will this spring or summer. We have worked hard with the contractor to keep the exterior building painting from disturbing our guests and I am sorry it disturbed you. There is never a good time to do this sort of work on the...
