The motel is outdated and old, but the room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was very small. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The only downfalls were the smell of the room, the 'old' smell in the room was very strong and the ceiling was brown and cracked in spots and there was a hole in the wall... More

I took my family on a roadtrip, had reserved the hotel in advance with it stating children stay in the rooms at no extra charge, when I tried to book, for the children, it raised the price, so I called the ABVI 800# she said to just book for the 2 adults, and print out the hotels policy,,, Thank God...

Large hole in the wall behind the door where it had been forced opened, stained sheets with holes, bathroom barely functional, odd smelling towels and loud drug induced behavior all night long. We didn't complain....just left ASAP. Any positive... More

We had to leave our home due to a flood cause the conditions at our home were hazardous. The staff at this hotel was the first part of our horrible experience. I don't think any of them knew how to smile. "Yash" in particular was a real piece of work. He was in attentive, rude, and turned out to be... More

I recently booked and stayed at this location for four nights. I was VERY pleased with the extent of customer service that I received. Nichelle and Yash at the front desk were wonderful! I traveled alone and felt very safe. This hotel is located in the parking lot of Pensacola University Mall, by JC Penney, and there are several restaurants... More

Check in was quick and the gal behind the counter was very nice, answering all of my crazy questions about the are with... More
