We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in July. We stayed in the area to look at houses to consider possible relocation, and it was a "layover" area for us between beach rentals, an attempt to save money while we were inland for a few days. While it was considerably less than the Pensacola Beach hotels, it showed! The staff was very friendly and accomodating, no complaints on that. This hotel did not look very old, but it had a musty mildew smell that you noticed the minute you get out of the lobby and headed toward your room! It even had a small (4"?) area of mold growing on the bathroom ceiling corner. When I cranked up the air, the smell was even stronger! It could have been cleaner, the carpet left our feet black after walking across the room a couple times. I don't know if the hotel had a humidity problem or if it's just a "Florida thing", but we couldn't even get a beach sheet to dry out overnight. We left it draped over a chair in front of the air conditioning vents (running full blast) and the next day it was still as damp as the night before. The breakfast was free, but minimal...bagels and cereal. I could not get a wireless connection (free) on my laptop. I gave up my attempt when the front desk attendant did not know what "WIFI" and "hotspot" were. I was able to connect via phone, dial-up. The pool was adequate, situated in the back and screened in. It was pretty clean and mostly empty when we were there. I never heard any noise from adjoining rooms at night...very quiet. Overall, I can't complain. Lowering our standards to a minimum amenity hotel afforded us better lodging at the oceanfront locations we went to during the remainder of our vacation. We had to comprome a little! I considered the hotel very expensive for the location, which was 30 minutes from the coastal areas. I didn't want to stay in urban Pensacola because I couldn't find any hotels on TripAdvisor with good reviews! The Milton area was safe, and it was half the cost of the Pensacola Beach oceanfront hotels. Again, the saying is so true...you get what you pay for. If management would do some deep cleaning and painting, this place could be decent. Would I stay here again? Probably not. There is another hotel franchise in Milton for just a few dollars more. In hindsight, I would have shelled out the extra couple bucks in exchange for a cleaner room. When I booked my stay at Red Roof, there were no reviews for any Milton hotels. Now I know where I won't stay next time I come back to the Pensacola area!
