Located on the bay directly across the street to the beach. The motel has a retro feel of the good old days. There is a bar and restaurant on the premises. You can walk to a ton of great bars and bistros close by. They have a pool and fishing pier. They make great bushwackers and the bar tenders are top notch. Lindsey is the best

We thought it would be fun to bring our dogs to the beach and needed a pet friendly place to stay. We booked 5 nights at the Surf and Sand (not so pet friendly) which was an absolute horrible experience and didn’t want to leave Pensacola feeling robbed of our vacation. We stayed for 3 additional nights at the Paradise Inn and it was a wonderful experience!! Family owned and so the staff is friendly, nice and helpful. Newly renovated rooms, and our room was very clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom has a stall shower and is decent size. Our room had a back door to a dog run for potty breaks. So nice not to have to walk the dogs a half a block to take the dogs to go potty. The pier and bay are beautiful and the sunsets are spectacular. Paradise Bar & Grill are on the premises so no need to leave. Typically they have live music (No music due to covid - open until 10 pm) on the weekends and have great food and drinks on the beach!! Many different lounging nooks overlooking the ocean with picnic tables or lounge chairs with umbrellas, so it was easy to keep social distancing. They have their own dog beach and the dogs are allowed to swim in the bay. There is also a larger dog beach 5 mins by car from the Inn that is on the ocean side if you want to catch some waves. It’s a lovely and clean beach with easy access and free parking. There is a small pool on the premises. The kids enjoyed being able to swim in the pool. We mostly stayed on the beach. We would definitely stay again. If you are bringing your pet this is the only nice place to stay on Pensacola Beach. Enjoy!!

I booked Thurs-Sunday of the same week on a Tuesday evening. I received a confirmation that the room was reserved. A confirmation!! My family and I wake up on Wednesday and decide to head out after work at 3. We pack up and hit the road. Around 6 that evening, we stop for dinner. I decide to check my email. There is an email from Paradise. I open it and find an email that states my reservation is cancelled because they are completely booked. This email is sent approx 10 hours after my reservation. The most annoying part is that no one from the hotel reached out to me to inform me of this. I’m not glued to my personal email. With working that day and then packing, that was the least of my concern. The only upside is that I caught this before making the journey all the way there. I saved my family an unnecessary 12 hour round trip! But we wasted $60 in gas and $150 for a hotel for Wednesday night. I wish we could have booked elsewhere but kinda hard when traveling with a pet as well. Thanks Paradise Inn! We sure didn’t find our Paradise. Instead we found an 6 hour round trip journey back home and out $210! I have a very sour taste in my mouth to say the least! The good news...I can save you the headache. You want to book a room? Call them. When booking online, it seems to be a known system issue.

I’m a budget traveler, so I didn’t expect anything fancy. It’s right on the bay, outdoor restaurant on the bay was really good. The sunsets from the pier were to die for! We went out there every night to watch those sunsets. They put us in a corner room with one window that had a tree in front of it, so we couldn’t look outside or get any natural light. The room was pretty small and dark (a window with natural light would have helped.) we had 3 adults and 1 child, and it was pretty tight. The bathroom was very small, hard to change clothes in there as there was no room to move, and the stomper for bathtub didn’t work. There wasn’t one of those luggage things to sit suitcase on so I put it in bottom of closet, but it was so dark I had to use my flashlight to get clothes out. Only a small dresser with a few drawers. The night before we left a guy that works there was by the pool and another patron asked what time the pool closed, he said 10:00, but I’ll leave it open till 11:30 for you. We were getting up at 5:00 am the next morning to leave for home and we finally had to call the office at 11:30 because we listened to people screaming in the pool from 10-11:30. We had a light go out in the bathroom and I went to the office, he came right away to fix it. The AC unit is so loud, you have to talk loudly for anyone to hear you, and sleeping was difficult. It’s about a 5-10 min walk to the beach (10 min carrying all of your beach gear) you have to cross a 4 lane road, and a long sidewalk to get to the beach. There is a gas station and Native Cafe within walking distance. Not a bad place for cheap travel, but I wouldn’t stay there again.
