For the past month, at least, I have tried my hardest to get this hotel to cooperate and send me extensive information because the information on the webpage didn't include all I needed to know. I've wasted my time on 2 useless online chat sessions and have gotten no-where. I have sent countless emails trying to obtain some sort of... More

We LOVED staying here. When we return to Pensacola Beach, this is where I'll stay again, will not even look at anything else. The hotel is a really nice, clean facility. Our room was very clean, as was the rest of the hotel. I expected to find sand everywhere, but that wasn't the case. Truly every staff member was friendly,... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such praise. We post our guest reviews on our employee bulletin board and I must say yours is quite inspiring & motivating! You may be surprised to know that the hotel staff does not use any air fresheners in the guest rooms. We do occasionally spritz a slight mist of... More

This was our honeymoon (on a budget) destination from 2 years ago and we recently made a return trip. This time, we stayed an extra day. This hotel offers premium service, premium rooms, and is at a premium location - secluded from the rest. There are no rooms that look out over the bay, every room is ocean-front. The beds,... More

Nice hotel. Nice boardwalk to a beautiful beach. Nice staff. Wonderful beach trip! And great seafood nearby. Peg Leg Pete's comes to mind...go there early or you'll have a long wait...but it's worth the wait!

Arrived at this hotel on a Wednesday, the hotel seems to be located in the less occupied area of Pensacola Beach. I really liked this because it was very peaceful during the day and night. The check in process was fast and efficient. The staff were friendly at all times. The hotel is very clean, nice and right on the... More

We sincerely love creating memories for our guests and must tell you that you women have created fond memories for us, too. Tutt was so pleased that you remembered him as he stepped onto the elevator and I was overwhelmed when you gave us the photo of your last visit. Thank you choosing us to host you! More

Excellent location, staff, accommodations! We loved the hotel, the view, the breakfast! Front desk staff were wonderful. Recommended an awesome place for dinner....try Flounders while you're there. Last, the pillows and beds were wonderful! Eight day trip and this was by far, the BEST hotel!

I can't say enough positive things about this hotel!! This was our first stay in Pensacola Beach and as awesome as it was, won't be our last. The rooms were extremely clean & spacious and staff was super friendly (I'm going to say they are more polite & chatty then my experience w/Disney World staff). We needed Maintenance to get... More
