I love the beach and have traveled to many hotels on the beach all across the southeast, and I must say this is top 3, easy! Beautiful, modern, clean hotel with great balconies and views of the gulf that can't be beat. We were close to a National Park and many great choices for seafood restaurants. The front desk staff...

Stayed at this hotel from 7/17-7/20, hotel very clean and neat. Hotel directly on the beach you will think the room will be cover with sand but it wasn't. Great breakfast, turkey sausage, bacon, eggs, oatmeal, grits, biscuit gravy and more. It was my sons 9th birthday and I was able to put his name on the bulletin board outside.... More

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! We were here during the air show and it is a perfect place to watch the show. They also had security during that time to make sure only guest... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
