The hotel rooms are nice. They ALL overlook the beach, and are good-sized. Bathroom is very small, but the room size is large. The balcony is big enough for two people to sit and enjoy the view. For $300/night, though, I would expect a higher level of quality. Walls are super-thin (as are most hotels' walls) and they charge guests...

After a beautiful time of enjoying the city, and after calling the hotel to verify the holding of our room due to our late arrival, we unload the car only to find that our room had been SOLD due to an unmentioned "policy" that after 6 pm rooms are up for sell or some craziness. Happened to FIVE other guests...

What stands out about this wonderfully charming hotel is that every single room has a deck overlooking the Gulf, and you feel you have your own private beach and yet are still remarkably close to anything else you would want. And the ambience the staff has created is unparalleled! You know those places where the concierge is obviously getting kickbacks...

We were staying at another hotel down the beach and were having a terrible time, so we walked into this place to see if we could get a room and were instantly met with a smiling face. Like a breath of fresh air, this place was what we look for in order to have a great vacation. We got a...

Travelling back from Louisiana to New York State, we chose to spend two nights in Pensacola Beach. We randomly chose this hotel due to its quiet location. It was the perfect choice..... super clean, all rooms face the ocean - within yards of the gorgeous beach. Staff were exceptional. Could not have been happier.

We have stayed in a lot of hotels, but this is definitely one of the best! We brought four children for a family vacation. The hotel is right on the beach, but within a mile of tons of restaurants that we walked to, stores, and we were also lucky to have a bunch of free activities going on at the...

It was our first stay here. Our room was a 7th floor view and it was wonderful. The room was a good size, clean, well supplied, and the bed slept well. The bathroom was clean and everything (from shower head to sink to commode) saved water...but worked perfectly. Our balcony door could be left open to listen to the ocean...

We love reading the words "clean"& "courteous"in our reviews. We appreciate it when we are noticed for our conservation efforts and we especially appreciate that you "loved the hotel as much as the beach"- the ultimate compliment. Thank you! But we couldn't help but notice that you rated us only as 4 stars. If time allows please call me at...

Clean room, common areas and beach area. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast was typical HIE and good. Beach chair vendors (Loni and Christie) provided great service. We'll be back for sure.

I completely recommend this place to the traveler looking for rest and relaxation for you and your family. The staff were amazingly friendly with a goal of ensuring we had a fantastic vacation. The view from our room on the 7th floor was amazing! But since all the rooms face the Gulf I guess that is true for all of...

When we pulled up I was a bit disappointed.. looks a little dated. Room is just a typical hotel room.. however, what it lacks in eye appeal is more than made up for.. the hotel is so clean, the staff is so cheerful and helpful. The ocean view so spectacular!The beach was clean and uncrowded; the hotel location is fabulous.....
