“New construction blocking view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I both agree that the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Even though this is an older hotel, the rooms were clean and maintained. You do need to walk about .2 of a mile to cross the road to the beach, because this is a very busy 4-lane highway. The breakfast was good with gravy, biscuits, and waffles that you make. We stayed on the 6th floor where we had the best view. There is new construction of a condo on the beach that will be partially blocking the view of the Gulf. So, the picture of the view across the street will need to be updated.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay at the Emerald Coast Inn & Suites. The new hotel across the street will block a little bit of our view but will not affect the view from guest rooms. We thank you for choosing to stay with us and hope you come back to see us again soon!

We were skeptical while booking because the hotel is not on the beach. Prices on the beach are just way more than we wanted to spend. The price at this hotel was very reasonable.The check in desk employees were pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean and had all the amenities you need. The beds were comfortable. The A/C worked great and was very quiet. The free breakfast included sausage with biscuits and gravy. Room service came everyday. One thing about room service that impressed me was they didn't make up one of the beds because I left my laptop on it. It seems they do not invade your personal items. I found that to be respectful and appreciated it. Even though the hotel is not on the beach, it is right cross the street with easy access to the beach. It is close to everything you could want to do. I would stay here again.

This hotel is older but it doesn't matter. Staff is awesome and friendly. Rooms are spacious and beds are comfy. View of the ocean is great - especially from the 6th floor where we are. It isn't right on the beach.....you have to cross the street to get to the beach. But the hotel across the street right on the beach is not any more impressive than this one and is more than double the money. We haven't had any problems and have no complaints.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view and as high up as they can put you.

Very pleased with this hotel. Smaller, older place but very well kept. The staff was very polite and helpful. You can tell they have done recent renovations. Most importantly, it was very clean. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was good. If you want a luxury condo on the beach this js not the place for you! If you want a nice, clean, affordable place to stay with a short walk to the beach, this is for you! Would definitely stay again.

We stayed in room 509 on the 5th floor for the weekend. I was also skeptical about cleanliness, but the hotel room looked awesome. My only flaw (and not the hotels fault) was there was a group of loud drunk people at 2 AM right outside our door, I did call the front desk and it was taken care of in under 5 minutes! I would stay here again. The pool was small, but when you are right across from the beach it doesn't matter much. It was just my husband and I, I did like the hotel alot for the money, but I don't know if I would bring my 2 year old with us here. It didn't have a "kid friendly" vibe to me.

I was very pleased with our stay here! I was a little skeptical about the cleanliness of the hotel but was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. We had room 510 with 2 queen beds which had down comforters that were so comfortable! The bathroom is small, no counter space but there is a full length mirror in the room which I was able to get ready on front of. And very clean! I walked around barefoot and my feet stayed clean! The location is awesome! You can't see the beach from the hotel, only the water, but it's just a little walk across the street! The staff was very nice and offered help with anything. I felt safe and noticed the cameras on the property. Would stay here again! The pictures do not do the new renovations justice!

We went last year in june, the staff was friendly, helpful and just plain nice. Every morning a nice breakfast was ready to enjoy free of charge, not like the resorts where you pay an arm and a leg and don't even get a free breakfast. The rooms were cleaned nicely everyday. We have already booked our trip for this year in may and can not wait to check in. We look forward to staying with them again. The only bad thing I can say is we were hoping for a suite and they were already booked. We will have to book earlier next year. Thanks Emerald Coast Inn and Suites for making our stay enjoyable.
