“Relax in Paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW via mobile

We just returned home from a stay at this centrally located, price is right inn. We had a bay side room and we enjoyed watching the boats and the people. I liked the mid-century motor lodge charm and the fact that we could interact with our neighbors. The rooms are clean, but small. We ate at the on site restaurant/bar on two occasions and the food was great and well priced. The bar is a favorite of the locals and was busy over the weekend. The only downside to our visit was the band on Friday night (although from other reviews I was prepared for the loud music and other noise). This place is not for everyone and if you are looking for pricey mini-suites, you best head on up the road. Employees were friendly and helpful. I plan to stay here again in the future.

Stayed September 2014, traveled as a couple

We loved our friendly welcome to the Paradise Inn by the laid back guys on reception. The room was basic, but it was clean, quiet, and excellent value for money. The beach was just a short stroll away so the location was perfect. The hotel bar was good fun and had an awesome bar man made who added to the fun vibe.
The only downside was the "free WiFi", which turned out to be unavailable in the rooms and was hit and miss in the communal areas.

We live in Tennessee and were just look'in for a 4 day get-a-way. Had a friend from Pens.beach who told us of this good "blue collar" local style place. She said they had a really good outside Tiki bar and grill with plenty of good local folks and plenty of good restaurants and beach bars within walking distance. This proved to be very true. A short walk across the road and a 2 block stroll down the beach, found us a great beach bar "The Dock". Cooled off with an Adult beverage - great setting with a beautiful view. Then some more beach time and back to Paradise Inn Tiki bar and grill for some local conversation and some really good food - fish sandwich/ tuna dip/ shrimp salad etc.-- excellent food. OK- room was small, not real modern, etc - but it was clean with a real comfy bed and a great place to "rest our luggage" Good 3-4 day spot. The employees were all very nice to us. Had a nice small pool also. Only a short walk to Flounders restaurant - This place had a very nice variety {shrimp,red snapper,and wonderful flounder fingers. FUN STAY

Room Tip: Stayed in room # 222 around back away from bar/grill to avoid any noise from music.

We can't attest to the hotel, although it was booked solid for the Labor Day weekend. Looks right out of the 50's "no tell motel" vibe. Bar sitting in the middle of the parking lot, outdoor dining readily available, bands on the weekends, pier to the bay. Great place. Fun. Wide range of people both locals and tourists. We will always come back here to chill and have a beer. One day we may try the food! Busy business, always attentive.

Can't comment on the motel since I didn't stay there ,but we went to the bar for dinner which was pretty good, but the atmosphere is off the charts, total party, good bands, cold beer, great time. the service was hit and miss due to the fact it was packed, but what a great time.

Been going to Pensacola Beach for years and never stayed here, always been a big chain Diamond Level guy. What an idiot I have been. This place is 10 kinds of awesome..the outside is straight out of the 50 ' s the inside of room is new and super clean..the tiled bathroom from the same era was immaculate..not one spec of mold or rust..
The bar and grill on the beach, live music, draft beer, good oysters...stumble back to room, what else can I say..this place is worth every penny.

This place is the kind of place I would pick to stay if I weren't traveling for work. So it's kinda great that I would get something of this flavor on this run. It's got everything you need, some sweet little touches, nothing super cheesy. Staff is nice and helpful. And the location is close to most everything you could need in Gulf Breeze. Live music, all outdoor bar hangout. Beach sand and lots of room to sit on the sand or at a table. Choose your experience while the music plays. That's damn cool!

Room Tip: Not too close to the bar if you don't want loud.. I got 102 which was close to the lobby and not...
