My wife and I decided to stay at this hotel while visiting Pensacola because of the price. We looked at hotels on Pensacola Beach Island and the middle Island and this by far was the best value. It's a 15 minute drive to the island so not bad, and this hotel has plenty of parking and is a short drive from restaurants, bars, and the Blue Wahoos Stadium in downtown Pensacola. The historic lobby is really neat to walk through; the rest of the hotel, where the rooms are, is well kept '90s modern. The room and bed were very comfortable. Many people mention the train that passes the hotel, we just asked for a room on the quiet side of the hotel that faces the convention center, while you could still hear the train, it wasn't overwhelming.
Right down the street is a great bagel place called Bagel Heads. Everyday we'd stop there for breakfast and also buy bagel sandwiches for lunch which we'd take with us to Fort Pickens National Park (Gulf Islands National Seashore). The beaches here were beautiful and comfortable with restrooms and lifeguards compared to the dirtier and overcrowded city beaches.
Also, if you like historical homes, be sure to drive through the Pensacola neighborhoods, there are very nice historical Victorian homes to see.
