Beach is amazing! Two chairs with umbrella is $35 which is more than we have ever paid to rent. Room is large with great balcony and amazing view! Bed is comfortable and great shower. One mile from pier park where you will find a ton of bars, shops, and restaurants. Breakfast is very basic. Only issue is no wifi. I... More

A little outdated , the still use bed spreads, but it met our needs just fine for a few days. It's nicer than a basic hotel room but not quite a condo. The bedroom and living area is separated by the kitchenette and has a door which is great when traveling with kids. The patio is a little small with... More

We had a center suite in the 10th floor with a double balcony and enjoyed our stay in April. Within walking distance of pier park restaurants and shops. Had drinks at barefoot beach bar every night right next door. Only negative comment is that there were too many high school kids in the area.

The room had a beautiful view of the gulf Coast and well worth the money. Extremely pleased and glad that we stayed here. We were given the option of what floor we wanted to stay on which I really appreciated.

I had a great time at this hotel. Amenities were nothing fancy, just a basic pool. We stayed with 3 couples in a room with 2 double beds and a fold out couch. Wasn't extremely comfortable but for the price it is what it is. I am sure the hotel wanted us out by the end of the 3 nights... More

Last year we stayed four times at this property. We came back this spring break trying to relax. We were at the swimming pool and then we heard a splash at the pool, it was a 2 litters of liquor glass bottle. I was so upset that I took the bottle and ran into the hotel lobby. The lady at... More

I have stayed at maybe 10 or so different hotels up and down the panhandle coast, and this was certainly the worst yet. I caught the tail end of spring break so choices were limited as far as hotels so I chose Legacy due to the decent Trip Advisor rating. This hotel is WAY overrated on TripAdvisor. It does have...

I stayed there this past week, 4/3-4/6 in room 302 and it was very nice and quiet. They staff was very friendly. The rooms were very convenient to the wave runners, and the banana boat so we didn't have to leave to do any of that. The Barefoot Grill is next door and there is also an oyster bar, Shuckums...

Clean but dated rooms and friendly staff are what you get here. If you're used to staying at the Ritz, Omni, or even the Marriott then this isn't the place for you. However, if you're used to Super 8, Motel 6, etc... then this is the place for you. At $193 a night (includes tax) I felt this place was... More
