First of all the site page says that it is Newly Remodeled what a load of crap!!! Second when you call and ask for information they tell you one thing then once you get there it's something different. Don't get me wrong what Mark L said was right the bed was comfy, but thats about it. Another thing if you are looking to go swimming this is not the place for you. Yes they have a pool, but the cement is all broken uo the stairs are messed up oh and did I mention there is NO WATER !!!!!

We appreciate guest reviews, especially those that may be critical.

Please note that our pool was listed and has always been seasonal. This is listed on our site as well as in signs when guests check-in. Until recently, the pool was not open as it was being remodeled. This may be why the guest saw there was no water in it and some small cracks. .

As the season has now begin, the pool is now fully open and all of the patio furniture is new as well. .

We have spent over $350,000 to date remodeling this hotel (exterior, common areas, and interior rooms). Many of our rooms have completely new and remodeled bathrooms with brand new tubs, sinks, and vanities. We continue to expand our renovations to all of the rooms. Shortly, every room will have a new bathroom.

We are happy the guest enjoyed the comfort of our beds. We take great pride in insuring that our bedding is comfortable and that our guests enjoy a comfortable stay. We spent a lot of money on our beds and bedding to ensure they are better than most top hotels you may stay in.

Our rooms are comfortable, clean, newly remodeled in most cases. You get free wifi, HBO, and the pool use as well as other amenities. We pride ourselves on providing a five star experience at an affordable price for our guests.

Pictures of the remodeled bathrooms and the pool will be put on the sites shortly.

I had no problem getting to the hotel unlike some of thw reviews. Its all the way at the end.
They have definitely made improvements to the outside of the building. So it doesn't look like the Google street view.
Service was EXCELLENT. A man with a gold tooth was extremely helpful and kind.
Rooms are pretty good I didn't have any issues besides the bathroom floor had some kind of residue on the floor. It felt like it was oily. Probably wrong kind of cleaner.
Beds were soooooo comfy. And I have a tempurpedic mattress at home.
About 20 mins from Pensacola beach and 14 from Walmart. There is a HUGE MALL about 15 mins away. Every store you can imagine.
Stayed in 116 or 216 I don't remember. This is not a hotel I would bring children to but great if you just need a place to stay while your having a great time in PENSACOLA FLORIDA!

I have stayed in many hotels, especially on business trips and vacation and this one was really one of the top 3 worst ever hotels I've stayed at! My family has been relocating from WA to FL and stopped at the Easy Rest Inn and I was very much disappointed and upset with the accommodations.

With my GPS I went round and round in circles where it was "supposed" to be, but it was kind of hard to find. It's in a location with lots of other hotels and motels, but their sign was not up so I assume it was either broken or did not work. The outside does not look cared for at all - the sign is torn down/broken and the windows, walls and parking lot outside are dirty and don't seem well cared for at all. The lobby smelled like mold/mildew and was hotter than outside, even with their air conditioning on - I felt sorry for the receptionist. She was very nice and they did have two rooms with two queen beds, like we reserved earlier that day. They did ask for a surprise $25 deposit for each room/night. Also, just as an FYI for travelers, they only have coffee (and sometimes juice) in the morning, NO BREAKFAST!!

Unfortunately, there are no elevators and we were on the second floor, which is difficult for my dad to walk up and down because he's got a bad knee. The Inn inside looks and feels more like a really cheap weekly/monthly apartment building; going down the hallways you can hear what folks are saying/doing in their rooms because the walls are so thin, it smells like a combination of smoke and mildew/mold, and feels like the walls and ceiling need a good scrubbing and new coat of paint and the floors deep cleaned.

Going into the rooms, one smelled of mold and the other had a faint smell of smoke, both of which were non-smoking. Upon first evaluation, the windows in both rooms were OPEN with NO SCREENS, which is NOT good because FL has many bugs and insects that are nuisances and/or poisonous and can come in through the open window. The bathtubs had dirt stains (black) along the bottom and didn't look like they were washed at all, the shower heads had calcified so much it didn't look safe to use, so my family decided NOT to shower that night, even though we had traveled more than 800 miles that day and really wanted and needed to shower. The sink faucet is not properly designed for the sink so our hands were rubbing against the side of the sink every time we had to wash our hands. The floors did not look clean and so we all wore our shoes, even for potty breaks in the middle of the night.

Now, if the bed was clean and I had a good night's sleep I wouldn't really care about the rest of the issues - unfortunately, when turning the covers, I found small curly hairs (like pubic hair or "baby hair" or something) in the sheets. I went over to the room my parents and brother were staying in and my brother's bed had hairs of all sizes in his sheets!! We stripped the beds and asked for clean bedding, which I had to go downstairs in my pj's to get because the phone in the room didn't connect to the front desk at all. The receptionist gave me new bedding and while my brother was able to go to sleep, my new sheets didn't seem to fit as well as the dirty bedding did. ALL the linens are stained yellow (they're supposed to be white), so I don't know how old those sheets are, but they need to clean them and bleach them, or burn them and get new ones. In any case, I slept on top of all the covers in my clothes because I still felt the new bedding was not clean enough.

I suppose there were two good things about the Inn. One, the air conditioning worked very well and cooled the hot room fast, and secondly, the pool looked clean. Unfortunately, we could not use the outdoor pool because we came in late in the night and left early in the morning. They also have a VERY strict check-out policy ($25 charge per room after 11 am.).

All of this being said, the Easy Rest Inn is definitely in the top 3 WORST places to stay at, out of all of my experiences of staying at hotels and motels. I do NOT recommend staying here - go to another hotel/motel....ANY other place would be better!

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

This is a great place for the price. The room was clean, the front desk clerk was kind, and it is in a nice location. All the rooms are inside corridors, so it is safe, too. Granted, our expectations were low since the price was so good, but what more can you ask for than safety and cleanliness? We asked for extra towels and a hair dryer and were granted them with no problem. A coffee maker comes in the room, but there is also a sparse continental breakfast (there were pastries and coffee) in the lobby. WiFi was not working in our room but it was working in the lobby area; we were told that they often have WiFi issues there. Don't expect anything fancy for this price, but it is a nice place for anyone on a budget who wants a safe, clean room.

Room Tip: We had a room with 2 queen beds. I think because the price is a couple dollars more, they are less used and therefore a bit nicer.

I stayed here on December 31,2011. I was on the third floor because we had a smoking room. They charged us a 25.00 dollar deposit which was not a problem for us to put up. The problem started several days later when we did not get our deposit back. I was told that the reason why they kept it was because i was trashed my room. If leaving five beer bottles on a counter and one wendys bag is trashing a room then im guilty. I can not believe that the maid would lie and stay that i would trash the place. I used to be a housekeeper and i would never do that. Need less to say Dont stay here they will take your deposit money.

Room Tip: Dont stay here they will take your money.

Customer feedback is an integral part of our process and the principle goal of our hotel is to provide an enjoyable, safe and comfortable place to stay at an affordable price. We certainly appreciate candid reviews and each comment we receive, whether good or bad is taken very seriously and acted upon immediately.

With that said, we are not willing to sit back and allow this person to make false statements about our hotel. The fact is that when the housekeeper entered the room to clean it, she stepped out to get the executive housekeeper so she could be a witness to the condition the guests left the room. There were beer bottles everywhere in the room including outside the window. The linen was ruined because it was burned with cigarettes or something. We found traces of illegal substances (which we are very strict not to allow in our hotel) all over the table. Our housekeepers filled two 55 gal bags full of trash from the room. Obviously this guest used our facility as a party room and not as a sleeping room.

It is not our policy to charge guests for no reason, and we would always prefer not to, as the amount of damage or less. However, in this case, there was excessive cleaning necessary and the room was not able to be rented for a few days because of the smell and mess leftThe time it took to clean the room and the damaged linen far exceeded the $25.00 the guest was charged.

It should be noted that the guest specifically states that her stay was fine. She had an issue with our charging her for execessive damage. To start the review with the title she chose, under these circumstances is not only unfair but quite misleading.
