Early December 2012. 2 adults. Business with long breaks.
Location: Easy walking distance to Wendys, a steak house, and other eating places.
Easy walk to the bay for a morning or evening run along the sidewalks. Traffic lights at some of the crossing points.
Can quickly go to I-110, or go to historic/touristy old town, or go to the no toll bridge to Gulf Breeze (then the $1 bridge to the outer island and beaches).
Always got good information from the front desk and other staff. We had no problems with pick-up and deliveries at the Inn with FedEx (and saw UPS there often). All staff were knowledgable about times, distances, costs, and best routes to malls, YMCA, hospitals, military bases, sporting venues, etc.
Mid-week evening meals were substantial, e.g., baked potato and chilli, build-it-yourself 'burgers. Always, there was something extra: sweet potato fries one night, 2 types of meatballs another night. Breakfast had the usual scrambled eggs and do-it-yourself waffles, plus variety; depending on the day: turkey Candian bacon with egg and cheese, sausage patti or links (spicy), hash on a shingle, different potato dishes, grits, mellons and other fruits.
Some thought was put into the lay-out of the rooms in terms of compartmenting sitting area, kitchen, bed, and bath areas; and doing it with a minimum of floor to ceiling walls. TV was on a swivel base on top of a waist high set of drawers dividing the bed area from the sitting area (spin the TV to the sitting area or to the bed).
Writing desk with "office" chair. convertable couch. Recliner chair. ottoman (that slides under the low table). small kitchen table. microwave, 2 burner stove. dishwasher, refrigerator. Dishes, drinkware, pots and pans, coffee maker. 6 drawer cabinet (under the TV). Wide bathroom counter with one sink and storage. Tub/shower and toilet in their own room with door. Standard size double closet with mirrors on the 2 sliding doors.
Just enough furniture in the room for evening work sessions. There were 2 of us and we did not get in each other's way. The room may be okay for 4 adults working at the tables, but with children or teens this layout may be tight. There is a pool, tennis court, exercise room and spacious sitting room/breakfast room with TV off the lobby, but not enough to keep active teens interested. This last opinion is based on overheard conversations.
Bottle water available at breakfast- no charge if you take an extra for the day.

Your profile pic bears an uncanny resemblance to Czar Nicholas II of Russia. Hopefully you felt like royalty in our hotel. Thanks for taking the time to cover all of our wonderful features and giving us high marks. It’s guests like you that make our work so rewarding. I hope that if your work brings you back to Pensacola we will again have a chance to “get it right.”
