We attended Thunder Beach Rally and this hotel is across the street from one of the ventures for the rally. Room was on 2nd floor, so using stairs was easy. Breakfast was minimal, coffee, bagel and cereal. All staff were nice and handled the crowd easily.

Ocean front location and price are what Legacy is all about. Remnants of college spring breakers are scattered about...general wear but rooms were clean and all facing the ocean. Breakfast was bleak, definitely needed updating to at least whole wheat bread and more than 1 kind of tea.

Hotel was clean and well kept. Staff was friendly. Great view of the beach. Within walking distance of Pier Park. Greatly enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was very "continental": oatmeal, cereal, and muffins. Mom & 12 yo daughter - felt safe the entire time. Even "off season" plenty to do. Brad the "Viking" was a great captain at Adventures by the...

The rooms were very dated and not particularly clean. All of the corridors, lifts and reception area were covered in water and sand from the beach which didn't make it look any better. Only plus is that the balconies have great views.

This was my first stay at this hotel chain.
