I bought this room on a bidding site for a very cheap price. I saw a guy just walk up to the counter and pay $50-60/night for his room, so that's probably the most you'll pay. This hotel is probably a good deal at either price.
It's an interstate exit motel surrounded by commercial area, so there are restaurants and stores around. It's about ten minutes from downtown Pensacola, and probably 25 minutes to the beach. If you're looking for a beach vacation (as I was), this place will work, but you'll have to take into account that you're saving a ton of money by not staying directly on the beach. I've stayed in this area for work in downtown, and it's perfectly serviceable for that.
The hotel and area seem safe, and I didn't see a single disreputable person wandering around. I was a little worried given that it's an extended stay, and those places are known for attracting an unpleasant element, but the other guests all seemed perfectly normal.
The bathroom was nice and clean, and the room was fine, I didn't like the bed one bit, but maybe that's just me. The kitchen wasn't stunning, but it's always nice to have a full fridge and appliances. The carpet had a red stain near the window... I suspect it was lipstick rather than something more gross, but I easily avoided it anyway. There was some sort of drip that never stopped, but it's these little things that gets a star bumped off of a really cheap hotel room.
Keep in mind that it's extended stay, so there's only maid service once per week. You can get whatever you need from the front desk. I was only there two nights, so I didn't need anything except more coffee for the coffeemaker. I'd definitely stay again.
