“A perfect beach hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We just left the hotel today and we loved our stay. We got a good deal for booking early. It's in a great location within walking distance to pretty much everything you'd want on the beach. Free breakfast which saves you money by requiring you to buy one less meal each day. They are very friendly and the rooms are clean. We had a balcony view which was gorgeous. We loved our stay.

My wife and I had a great time at the Hampton, we reserved a gulf front view and it was awesome!! The staff was so great. Want to make a special shout out to Lance and Shelbi worked the front desk they really helped be out on a billing issue. I had chance to stay at their sister hotel at the Hilton next door, but the Hampton was better and priced better!! The free breakfast was awesome!! Thank Hampton, hope to be back soon!!

Thank you so much on your stay with us at our gulf front property. All of our rooms have a nice view, but the gulf front balcony rooms have quite the view of the white sandy beaches Florida has to offer. Our on the house breakfast is sure to start any one's day off just right. Thank you so much for the kind words in regards to our front desk staff. Our whole Hampton team loves being able to help out guests any way possible. We so much look forward to your next trip with us.

My husband and I travel a little and Hampton Inn is always our first choice, however, after staying at this Hampton we will think again. This Hampton was by far the worse Hampton we have ever stayed at. Very disappointed in our room, which had the AC leaking and by the time we left started to smell very moldy. There was mold in the bathroom and drains were very slow. The dining area was not very clean. Also, never had to wait for a room when arriving early, but this time we waited nearly an hour. Will choose another hotel for sure on our next visit to Pensacola!

Two nights. Room 440. Two queens and an air mattress. Gulfview with a balcony. Great weekend!!!

I booked the room on Expedia about two months in advance of our trip. Keep in mind that Expedia will charge your credit card for payment in full when you book, but if the cancellation policy allows it, you can cancel for a full refund by the date indicated on your confirmation. However, it varies by hotel and even by the room you choose, so be aware when you book. I checked prices at this hotel again as the date got closer, and the beachfront rooms were substantially higher than we’d paid, so I was pleased that we booked in advance, and got such a great rate.

After a 4 hour drive from Louisiana, we checked in around 11:00 pm on Friday, August 9th. The parking lot is very big, and we had no trouble parking. Check-in was quick and easy, and the free internet was definitely a plus. The room was very spacious, and had a larger sized dormitory refrigerator, and a microwave. The refrigerator worked very well and kept our items very cold! At no time did I hear any noise from neighboring rooms, or from the hall so the rooms must be well insulated - no paper thin walls here...

The central air worked well, the shower water was hot, and the water pressure was good. We didn’t get our room cleaned on Saturday because at least one member of our party was sleeping in there during the day, so we had the “recharging sign” in the key slot. However, we had no problem getting clean towels after we’d used all of our towels on Saturday. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were decent. Nice high definition TV in the room, as well. The balcony was nice and spacious, and the furniture was okay – just two plastic lawn chairs and the matching plastic table, but it was sufficient.

The breakfast buffet was a huge plus! Very good selection, including hot items – eggs, turkey and pork sausage links, and pork patties, biscuits, and great waffles that you make yourself. Plus, there was fruit and other continental breakfast items. The breakfast area was right in the lobby area between the check in counter and the beach, so it was very convenient. The staff in the breakfast area was very nice and friendly, and worked hard to keep the area clean, and replenish the food items as needed.

The pools were clean and well kept, as was the pool and patio furniture. Towels were available outside for guests to use….

Be prepared to pay for chairs on the beach if you don’t bring your own. We paid $34 for Saturday for two wooded chaise lounges with cushions, and an umbrella. Well worth it, and we just shared the two chairs with everyone in our party. If you’re going to be there for several days, they will give you a package deal for multiple days. Those Gulf waves can be kinda rough, so you may want to bring life jackets for your kids or for any adults that don’t swim well or that panic easily if knocked down or swept away.

We had dinner on Saturday evening at Crabs We Got Em, which is walking distance from the hotel. We ate outside at a picnic table right on the beach. There’s a good menu selection for everyone, and the prices are pretty reasonable. I had the King Crab legs, which were $35, but worth every penny. They were delicious! Others in our party had the Mahi Mahi burger, grilled chicken burger, shrimp salad, and coconut shrimp. Everyone enjoyed their food! Oh, and their signature honey buns are very tasty too.

Overall, the hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to restaurants, souvenir shops, a public pier (that has a price to access), and other happenings. We parked our car on Friday night and didn’t move it until we checked out at 11:00 am on Sunday.

If you’re looking for luxury, it’s not here. If you’re looking for an affordable and decent place to stay, in a great location, this would be a good choice…

Slight con - The elevators were kinda slow. Also, a few elevator buttons had bulbs out, and you couldn’t tell if they were lit.

This property worked well for us. We enjoyed our stay, and will be back.

Room Tip: Room 440. Great views of the Gulf. Balcony with two chairs and an end table.

Very clean, good breakfasts, helpful staff. Timely check-in and check-out. Great view from balcony. Room Service restaurant H2O kind of expensive, but the food was good. Would stay here again if traveling through the area. There were 2 pools which was nice and a private walkway to the beach for hotel guests. Good family vacation.

Pensacola beach is definitely a great get away for families, and we are so happy you chose to stay with us. It is always convenient to have a complimentary breakfast to save on not only money but all of the hustle and bustle of getting out to find breakfast. We are glad you were able to enjoy our fun amenities such as our pools, which are just steps away from the white sandy beaches Florida has to offer. We look forward to your next trip at our property.

We love Pensacola Beach and this was our first time staying right on the beach. The Hampton has everything you need to have a relaxing week on the beach - cabana rentals, kayaks, paddle boards, 2 pools, tiki bar, free breakfast and free wifi. I'm sure I missed something! Friendly staff and great location with several restaurants, bars, and shops within walking distance. Loved it!
