We stayed off season and it was very quiet. We had a bay view room with a balcony. The beach was nice and right there. Parking is in a garage that is convenient to elevators that go directly to rooms. They offer free Community Coffee during the mornings.

I was at Margaritaville Beach Hotel with my wife. We met some wonderful people at this location, both workers and guest. This location is a prime spot, walking distance to the boardwalk, local restaurants. The view is amazing from the bedroom. We faced the Gulf and it was AMAZING. The hotel also provides covered garage space for your vehicle. Has a parking lot for larger vehicles/trailers. Very friendly employees that work throughout the hotel and hotel restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel, sure feels like paradise.

We were on our tour of the South. Booking places on the fly. Once we decided to put Pensacola on our list, it seemed that Margaritaville was the place to stay. The rates were good and the reviews were also. We got there just on the heels of a very big weekend. The off season was beginning. And I am not sure if it was because of that or COVID, but some of the services were not at 100%. We were greeted by some very nice doormen. But once I got to the desk I was forced to wait for quite a bit of time. Even the doorman wondered what was going on. NEVER was I told that someone would be with me, only asked what I wanted. Donnie Gene was the one that checked us in. Never a smile, only, "sign, here, here and here" and here are your room keys. The doorman helped us find our room. Our room was great. Looked right out on the beach. It may have been cool by local folk standards, but it was just right for us. The restaurant was functioning on limited staff. They only would fix our food "to go" and it took awhile. The bar only served people staying at the hotel. Not sure if that is something new. Saw a few people turned away. The beach was nice, I was surprised there were no chairs available. The pool was fun and we caught some sun. It was a nice clean place to stay, with safe parking. Everyone, except Donnie Gene were nice and friendly. Would like to try again in season.

Mrs. Scovill, I'm very sorry if our interaction at check-in came across as unfriendly. That was not my intentions at all. I was in the middle of handling a guest issue as our other staff was checking someone else in. While not an excuse, I do apologize if my demeanor was anything less than pleasant. On your next visit please reach out to me directly as I would love another chance to turn our interaction around. Sincerely, Donnie Ransbottom

I’ll start by saying that every single employee we encountered was friendly and helpful! The view was gorgeous as was the beach. The floors were grimy feeling and my feet always felt dirty. The shower was nice but also could’ve been cleaner. The rooms are all tiled as is the bathroom. This is an engineering boo boo unless there’s good insulation between the walls. We went for a couples relaxing retreat. The first day was nice and then..a young family with 2 babies checked in beside us. I have three kids-now teenagers so I get it-but, the children screamed non stop! I don’t mean occasionally whined or cried. They actually screamed as loud as they could with their tiny little voices all hours of the day. The mom sang constantly and I had to wonder if they’d ever heard the term “inside voice”. Middle of the night was screaming and at the crack of dawn they woke us up screaming. Not relaxing. You could hear people all down the hall-coughing, talking, etc. it was the loudest place I have ever stayed in my life. Frank n Lolas was the only restaurant open. I looked at the menu online and decided what to order. We went to the lobby and ordered. It cost $40 for eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. My husband got a tea. The menu said each entree was $10 but they rang up 40% more!! The bartender said sorry I guess I need to add the updated menu. He didn’t offer to edit the bill. We were charged 18% gratuity but received no service. A guy brought us paper plates with our food and left. I got the same food plus some at a neighboring property in 2018 and it was included. You’d think margaritaville would have something besides basic half n half coffee creamer but they did not. I’m not a hotel snob. It’s just I expected a good variety of food options, availability of good coffee, some peace and quiet and to not be price gouged (magically changing food prices and gratuity without service).
