“Front desk, Amanda, is above and beyond. Super employee!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

We had a meeting here this weekend. We checked with trip advisor,as usual, and decided on Sole Inn and suites.
After we made our reservation we found our that one of our presidental candidates
was going to speak here tomorrow. I called the motel back and Amanda managed to get tickets for us. How cool is that!
The outside of this motel is not indicative of the inside furnishings. The rooms are
nicely furnished with a comfortable
bed, fridge, free WI FI, happy hour, and a complimently breakfast. The room is clean has coffee, iron, and a good air
conditioner.
In our opinion, this motel is well worth the price. How nice to have an employee that is happy to help the customer.

I stayed at this property for two nights in October. Like others have said, it is an updated/remodeled motor lodge, and from a visual point of view they have done a good job of it. The rooms are on the small side, especially the bathroom, and is showing some wear (for example, the TV was small - 19 inch? 15 inch? - and not a flat-screen). The king-size bed was comfortable enough, and the wall-unit air/heat unit functioned properly.

On the plus side, the hotel has a prime location in the historic downtown corridor on Palofax St. In this regard, it is much better positioned then other nearby hotels. (Palofax is the main street, with tons of shops, bars, restaurants, etc. from the marina up to about where the hotel is, roughly 1.5 miles). The rate was reasonable for the quality of room and location, and the room was clean both before I arrived and cleaned during my stay. The front-desk staff were always nice and courteous.

On the down side, the parking lot is tiny (I'm not sure how crowded the hotel was when I was there, but there were times when the lot was full and guests were still coming in looking for someplace to park), the walls are paper thin, the window treatments are blinds rather than curtains (meaning that the room got very bright at the crack of dawn), and the wi-fi was awful.

If you are looking for a downtown experience, it's a pretty good choice. However, if you are in Pensacola on business there are plenty of Holiday Inn Express type places around. Likewise if you are planning on spending time at the Beach, in which case staying out at the beach is a better option.

Wow! What a find. While this is a refurbished old Motor Lodge, they have done a great job. The attention to detail enhances both visual appeal and comfort level. It's clean, comfortable and, sort of, funky (in a good way). The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed both the complementary breakfast and happy hour. Will definitely stay here again.

My daughter & I have stayed at Sole 4 or 5 times in the past 2 years & the stay has always been great!!! The rooms are very comfortable, clean & attractive. Love the Happy Hour provided free by the hotel. Also, just a couple of blocks from all of the action in downtown Pensacola.

I recommend The Sole to many of my friends. The staff are extreemly helpful and friendly. I've never had any issues with staying here and is ALWAYS clean and fresh not like some chain hotels I have stayed in. Anytime I am in Pensacola I look up Sole first. It's got the look of retro which is so different. Kind of reminds me of my childhood days when traveling for vacation. Pretty cool placed to stay.

Tell them to ask for Mark.

We stayed for one night before spending time in the beach. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. For the price it was great, but the linen was not soft and the furniture was flimsy. It was very clean and quiet for being right down town.

Not too attractive on the outside but the rooms are clean and comfortable - only drawback is the small TV. Convenient to downtown Pensacola and a mile from the water. Staff was friendly and helpful. Pricing was reasonable for the area.
