We couldn’t have picked a better location. Perfect little private sand/water beach. Fire pit for the evenings. Walking distance to majority of the town. Friendly staff. Definitely recommend & will be back soon.

We came in late and booked randomly. It was a cute beachside hotel. Better than we expected. Cute updated rooms, clean and a great value. Right across the street from the beach. Would definitely recommend.

My friends and I took a girls trip and this hotel was within our budget and had the best amenities (ie. free paddle board & kayak rentals, free breakfast, great view). We had a blast on our budget thanks to this hotel. We were a walk a way from the beach and the staff was extremely helpful when our A/C quit working (even gave us a credit). It’s renovated but you can tell it’s an older building. Perfect for a short weekend stay and close to all the aspects of the beach. Wouldn’t mind staying here again.

I found myself here trying to assist my parents after Hurricane Michael. There were no hotel rooms in Bay County, and limited rooms in Pensacola Beach so here I am. The place needs updating. The rooms are old, and lots of things in them do not work. I overlooked this bc the room appeared to be clean. There is a surf board on the wall, which was kind of funny to me. All was OK on the first day. There was a mix of families with small children, and adults with coolers right outside their rooms drinking and smoking. Not my thing, but OK. There is a strong desire for you to NOT utilize housekeeping. In fact, you are given a $5.00 credit if you skip service. The problem with this place is the walls are paper thin. Last night, I heard my neighbors and their *ahem* not-so-quiet time. As I type this measage at 8:19 AM, I now clearly hear their music blasting. It was misting outside today amd the smell of mildew in the room is pronounced and the floors are ickily moist. They do have free breakfast which is typical free breakfast fare. All in all, I would not return here unless it was my last resort. If I came here for the beach and night life, perhaps my opinion would change.

Let me start by saying this, the hotel is at a great location. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance and the beach is close by with ample parking. However, every other aspect of this hotel was a disappointment. The room was dirty and of low quality considering the price (some kind of red stains on the walls), there was mold in the milk we drank for breakfast and the staff's response was "Oh I'm sorry, the fridge must have been turned off on accident." ??? The bathroom has no vent in it so you're suffocating trying to take a shower, especially if multiple people need to shower. The hotel heavily advertises paddle boards and kayaks to take out into the bay, however they only have a few paddle boards and kayaks each for the 100 room hotel. When the staff was asked why so few were available, they responded with "we can't stock the entire 100 room hotel". Also they only allow 1 vehicle per room and any other vehicle will have to be parked across the road in a lot -- they do not give this information until check in. Not to mention when trying to retrieve the vehicle the next morning, the lot was closed off due to an event they were holding. It was extremely difficult to get the vehicle back out of the lot. I would not recommend staying here and will not return to this hotel.
