“Victorian Getaway...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The “Final Four,” days, that is. Our cross country road trip has sadly come to an end. This B&B has been delightful; although we weren’t too happy upon check in. When we went to our room we learned that the bath was not “en-suite.” It was said to be private, but it is situated in a public sitting area. Our reservation was for a queen room with an en-suite bathroom. I shared this with Barbie, the innkeeper, who seemed surprised that I thought my reservation included this amenity; so she asked to see my confirmation. After reviewing the document she agreed that my expectations were warranted, but that it was the internet reservation company that was to blame for the confusion. She offered to allow us to upgrade our room for a nominal fee (definitely reduced) as soon as another room became available, and we took her up on the offer; only because we don’t like parading through public areas in the middle of the night and in the morning to use the bathroom. In any case the furnishings and décor are lovely, the place is just charming. Breakfasts were very good: Scrambled eggs and bacon one day, French toast and bacon the next, followed by waffles w/a frittata accompaniment. Each day fresh fruit, cereal, coffee, juice, and milk were available, too. Another nice touch is the bottled water and soda offered to guests. I really like the place and the innkeeper. My only suggestion is that if you plan to stay here, call direct to reserve – that way you will know what you’re getting. Time to sign off for a while, we just kissed the kids and said goodbye until Christmas vacation. They are both moved into their dorms in Pensacola, and we’re preparing to fly home early in the morning.

Room Tip: The "Victoria" room is very small without an en-suite bath.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We arrived at the Bed & Breakfast at 4:00 PM to find an envelope taped to the door with our name on it. It's contents consisted of a welcoming letter, the password to use the internet and two keys (one for the front door and one for our bedroom door.) I thought it was odd how they just had the keys taped to the door, sealed envelope or not. It feels like home as soon as you walk in. There is soft music playing in the parlor. Dont forget to sign in on the guest book. You can hear her dog bark when you walk in sometimes but it's not annoying (or at least it wasn't to us, we have 4 dogs.) You cannot hear the dog bark from your room, just when you walk in the front door. Barbee wasn't in at the time we got there so another guest took it upon herself to show us around the down stairs area. There is a guest fridge full of a variety of soda (grape, orange, diet, etc) milk, and water bottles. There is a cookie jar full of vanilla and chocolate cookies, a bowl full of miniature cereal boxes, oatmeal, and home baked goods. We made the way upstairs to our room which was easy to find due to our name being on that door as well. The entire house has a comfortable cozy feel, as if you're at grandmas. We met the innkeeper, Barbee, later that day and she is a really sweet lady who is full of information. We discussed the Stephanie Plum book series while we might as well have been talking in French the way my husband was looking confused (he's not a book reader) and then she turned around and her and my husband spoke about football. She asked if there were certain foods we didn't like so she'd know when she made breakfast. I told her I didn't like (breakfast) meat and she seemed okay with that. She asked us what time would be good for us to have breakfast and the latest she makes it is 9:30. The first morning we had scrambled eggs, biscuits, quiche' (which was broccoli & chicken,) and bacon. (She didn't serve me the bacon or quiche' I was glad she remembered so it didn't turn into an awkward moment.) the second day we had waffles. There was also fruit salad on the table every morning. Good food and great conversation with the other guests who were staying there. It was more personal then a hotel breakfast where you sit at your own table and munch on cold donuts. It's a B&B NOT a hotel so your room is not going to be cleaned daily. However, there is a basket full of clean towels on the couch right when you get up the stairs to take as you please. I really enjoyed the feeling as if I were at home. There is no curfew and no one bothering you if you do plan on sleeping in. (Unlike a hotel where you clearly have the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door but that doesn't stop the non-English speaking housekeeper from opening your door.) I freaked myself out the last night we were there and didn't sleep a wink. If you're a wuss like me stay away from the book "Ghost Hunting Florida" by Dave Lapham in the library...The B&B is in it! The Pensacola Bed & Breakfast is a wonderful place to stay if you're looking for a personal touch. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Captains Room. The price was cheaper than a hotel and well worth it. Just be sure y...

Appears the current owner of this inn may be having some problems keeping it up. Restoration seems incomplete and not quite up to what most B&B visitors would expect. Breakfast was good and service was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Might need to reserve a larger, more expensive room rather than the "budget" room we rente...

We stayed one night in this charming B&B inPensacola at the end of 2011. We got a very charming room and it had a very nice downstair livingroom where we could sit down and take a look in the nice books. The breakfast was great and and we had a long, nice chat with Barbee.She gave us some good advices for where to have dinner and not at least she told us about the National Naval Aviaton Museum. Thank you, Barbee, that was great. If we ever are back in Pensacola, we know where to stay. Else and Robert
