Stayed in several Best Western hotels. This one is average. The really great things about this hotel is the staff and the location. Gorgeous beaches in this area and close to the boardwalk/pier area (withing walking distance down the beach). This hotel just needs a good scrubbing.

Best Western was great. Loved the location, beachfront on a beautiful beach. The free chairs and umbrellas weres set out every day for guest's use. Excellent staff and comfortable beds. Would definitely stay again. Close to Destin where you can find a lot of restaurants. Very relaxing as compared to the busier beaches of Destin. Free parking & good breakfast... More

I booked this hotel for a vacation in June based on the reviews here on Tripadvisor. I have never been so disappointed. Hotel really needed freshening up, new paint, cleaning even would have helped. It is very important to note that your rooms will open to the outside corridors. Like the very old "motel" style. The location was wonderful, right... More

The best part was the location. The beach was so close and it was perfect. Great lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach and free!! All the staff was very helpful and professional. The breakfast, if you are 20 and younger I guess it was okay. Our friends, my husband and I decide after the first morning to eat out.... More

We love this hotel. The view is wonderful and the staff go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. The view from the room balcony is breath taking. Be sure to book a room with a view. It is a little more expensive but well worth it. The balcony has a table and 2 chairs overlooking the Pool,... More

This was our second visit. We were there April 2011, as well. We returned for many reasons. Pensacola Beach hotels (P'Cola is closer to us) have become outrageously priced, even after Labor Day, the rooms are nice with a fridge & microwave, the staff is very friendly & helpful, and the location is directly on the beach.

We stayed here August 29-Sept. 2, 2012. Our family had a wonderful time in our "gulf view" room. The hotel was awesome! It was so much more affordable than all the other beachfront hotels. I had looked and looked online trying to find a nice hotel at a good price. I was so happy when I ran across this one.... More
