I've passed this motel many times while visiting and always wondered about it. I finally decided to book a trip to come here and I'm not disappointed. The rooms are pretty clean with comfortable beds. The front desk staff are very nice. Also there is a bar in the back with live music some nights. I love their bushwackers, fish... More

If you can't handle quirks, this is not your place. But if the journey is your big picture consider this as part of your experience. This bay side compound gives you a firm base on a cheaper option beach vacation. These folks are friendly. So, the rooms aren't all the same, big deal. Your pets are welcome for a small... More

The Paradise Inn is a quaint little motel that sits right on the water on Pensacola Beach.It was great to just walk out the door and be right on the beach, with a live band and great service. The rooms are on the small side, but how much time do you really spend in the room? We'll be back again!

wonderful location!!! My son, who has autism, was almost magically changed because there is so much less hustle and bustle than the trendier parts of the beach. He opened up to me and to strangers. It's almost like being in a separate little town. So the decor is outdated. Who cares? We didn't go there to sit in the room.... More

It's the cheapest place on the beach for a reason. The rooms haven't been renovated since the 1960's at least. Tiny bathroom with no place to set anything, no convenient outlets, blinds on the windows that don't shut out the light, noisy. The only good thing about the rooms is the mattresses.On the other hand, the location is good, right... More

Great place to stay....reasonable price, great little beach and Restaurant. Rooms were clean, and for anyone that has a pet, it is pet friendly and they have a wonderful fence in area right out your back door. Everyone working there was great as well....definitely will stay again...

I love this hotel. Everything we need is right here on the property. Private calm beach, restaurant, bar, live music, pool, breakfast, etc... And walking distance to the gulf pier and so much more. We love the employees here as they're all so kind and helpful. We've stayed here several times in the past couple years and we're so comfortable... More

Ok. It's quaint and close to the beach. The rooms are at best average. Mold is on the tile in room 124 along with a loose toilet . The front desk staff is terribly unfriendly. As an example , I asked the young lady about barber shops near by and got a very tease reply ."probably across the bridge". She... More

I think this might be the last of the old Pensacola Beach motels. How it survived I don't know but be happy that it did. We found the place to be very clean and extremely well maintained. The room, 208, overlooked the pool and was quite pleasant. It is a king room with a memory foam mattress... which was comfortable,... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to review Paradise Inn. We always look forward to hearing from our guests. It’s awesome to hear that you appreciate the fact the Paradise Inn is the last, old-school, retro motel on Pensacola Beach.
