“Great Water View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a great place to stay for the value, I'm not sure how it is at Spring Break though. As you enter the lobby, you have a beautiful view of white sand and the gulf. All of the rooms have an ocean view. Very clean and comfortable bed, the bathrooms are a bit run down but useable, not happy about paying for internet.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

We just returned from our first vacation with our 2 kids (ages 5 & 6) and it was GREAT!! We chose this hotel after reading tons of reviews on Trip Advisor & we are SO glad we did!! The room was very clean with a great view & a great layout! The Legacy by the Sea is located right on the beach & we enjoyed the Continental Breakfast served daily - then went to nearby restaurants (including the Barefoot Beach Club, just steps away, which was wonderful!) to eat. The kitchen in our room was fully stocked w/dishes & a dishwasher, microwave, etc. It was so convenient if we wanted to eat in, which we did a time or two. Staying right on the beach was awesome with great sunsets & lots to do! The pool was very clean & provided lots of fun for our kiddo's. Can't say enough about the GREAT SERVICE at the hotel; the staff was courteous, professional, & always kept everything so clean! Beds were clean and comfortable - we slept REALLY well! We truly enjoyed our 1st family vacation & will definitely return to the LEGACY BY THE SEA next year for MORE great fun!! :)

This is a great place to stay for the money. As you enter the lobby, you have a beautiful view of white sand and the gulf. We had a suite with ocean view. Very clean and comfortable bedding. Could use some redecorating. Great location.

Room Tip: We were in a non-smoking room #704 but the people in the room next door smoked on their balcony. We...

We had special needs for our trip (elderly parents) with check-ins and a liittle extra time needed, due to our flights. We chose, Legacy by the sea, to accommodate my parents and very glad we that did. This was probably their last vacation together, so we wanted to give them a good trip.
We can't say enough for the people behind the desk....very kind and helpful. They were going out of their way to make sure that all of our needs were taken care of. The rooms were very clean and a perfect view of the Gulf......couldn't ask for a better staff at this location. Thanks for a pleasant memory! Hope to be back someday

Stayed at Legacy by the Sea last week for one night on the way back to Texas. We had our 3 grandchildren and really wanted to stay on the beach since we were there for only one night. I think this was a really good value. The layout was a little awkward but our room was very clean. The beds and decor could use some updating. The mattress and pillows were just average. The outside could use a little sprucing up but just the fact that we got to stay on the beach with an ocean view room for the price we paid was great. Also they let us book for one night on a weekend and other places required 2 nights. It wasn't the nicest place we stayed on our vacation but by far had the best view and the front desk people were very nice.

I had a great stay!
Cindy at the front desk was exceptionally friendly and prompt. She gave me a room on the 12th floor so I had an amazing view of the Gulf. Cindy also gave me great dining suggestions. Two thumbs up for Cindy!
Although the rooms are a little dated, it was very clean and spacious with separate living area and kitchen. The bathroom has granite countertops and just like the rest of the room, it was very clean. It also has a good size balcony for you to walk out to and enjoy the view.
The bed was not the most comfortable, but it wasn't terrible either.
The only negative point about the hotel is the free continental breakfast...wasn't expecting it to be a buffet, but it could definitely be better.
Overall, I had a great experience. I recommend it and would come back next time I am in town.
