The hotel was clean and rooms were spacious with a deck and additional sink outside the bathroom . The beach was just outside your door. Good breakfast that came with the room is a plus for families. Staff was excellent! A nice desk clerk helped by having some aloe handy for my son's sunburn. Great place all around!

This hotel is absolutely wonderful! This isn't our first time and won't be our last. The rooms were clean and staff was super friendly. The view of the beach is perfect!

This hotel is, bar none, one of the best I've ever had the pleasure to stay in. The staff was welcoming, accommodating, kind, respectful and thorough. The location is breathtaking - every room with an ocean view and balcony that lets the traveler rest and watch/listen to the tides come in and out, the pristine white sand beach and clear...

Staying here is like coming home. The staff, cleanliness, location and value are superb. The staff is friendly and attentive. The rooms are clean and well-appointed, each with a magnificant view of the most beautiful beach in the world. I like being in an area of the beach that is away from the congestion, but is close enough to enjoy...

My husband and I stayed last week and LOVED it! Our gulf view room was very nice, and the king size bed was very comfortable. Our room had a small fridge that we were able to keep perishables cold. The fridge didn't have a freezer section in it, so just be aware of that if you are wanting to bring...

Sitting on the beach thinking about why this hotel gets it right. Other reviews have already said it: convenient location just far enough away from the congestion, beautiful beach, nice clean rooms, comfortable common area and great breakfast. But it is the staff that makes this place excellent. Every employee has been outstanding, and that kind of customer service is...

We stayed here for 6 days during the Pensacola Beach Air Show week. I had changed our days of arrival/departure 2 times back in February, but the staff at reservations was very accommodating (call them direct: don't use the 800 number). This hotel sits on a beautiful beach with crystal-clear water, and all rooms face the ocean. Our room was...

Heavily swayed by previous Trip Advisor ratings, we enjoyed a week at HIE in June. Yes, the staff couldn't be more friendly, the breakfast buffet is delicious, and the beach and view from the room is great. Wish that the beach chairs/umbrellas weren't an extra cost, but otherwise really enjoyed staying here.
