Reviewed 4 July 2012

When we reserved our rooms using our reward nights points, I really didn't expect to get a room on the 7th floor with such a great view! Every employee we encountered had a smile or a pleasant comment for us and we were asked over and over if there was anything at all we needed. The ladies covering breakfast did a great job keeping everything tidy and replenished. Our housekeeping person was very kind in coming back later in the afternoon to clean as my son stayed in the room for most of the first day. The room itself was very nice and well appointed. My son was glad they had several premium tv channels including the Speed Channel which is usually not available. :-) The pool is small, but very nice. Towels are available at both the pool and beach access. There is a nice patio area with lots of lounge chairs and a ping pong table. You have a view of the beach or the bay wherever you are in this hotel whether you're eating breakfast or in the glass elevator. The beach is fantastic and not nearly as crowded as other areas further down. Loved the way the water forms a sand bar nearly all the way across! Would like to clarify a comment another reviewer made about the hotel loaning out rafts, skim boards, etc. The hotel does not keep a toy box for loaning out items. However, there is an area on the patio where rafts, boards, umbrellas, etc are stored that are left behind by other travelers. Sometimes, people take these with them so there may not be any there for your use. But no worries if you didn't bring your own, there are lots of stores that sell these items at reasonable prices. If I had any suggestions for this hotel, it would be that they place trash containers in a more accessible place in the breakfast area and add another in the room ( or a larger one ). We will be back!

I stay at a lot of hotels each year and very few rate to be above average. This hotel, and especially the staff, rise above most others. The staff worked tirelessly to be certain that any request we had was met with a smile and a "can do" attititude. It is so nice to find a place where we are guests and not inconveniences! I did not see one staff person that was unfriendly or had a bad attitude my entire stay. I never overheard them complaining about their jobs; they genuinely seemed to enjoy having us be a part of their day.

The room was clean and spacious. We don't need (nor want to pay for) lots of amenities. This hotel had just the right touches - clean, a great breakfast, internet access, coffee at all hours, popcorn if we needed a little snack, or the oranges in the lobby in case we wanted to be healthy. The exercise facility was clean as was the pool area. Michael - the beach attendent was great! Jennifer took care of our room and was always kind - even with the mess that my family can leave behind. She always had a smile on her face.

Kudos to the staff and to Beverly the GM. She obviously runs a very service oriented hotel with a great staff and the staff has bought in to her vision.

If this hotel is available, we will be back again. It will be our first choice when at Pensacola Beach!

Room Tip: All rooms have gulf view. I don't know if there is a bad room in the hotel.

Love staying here at this hotel. Michael the beach boy that takes care of the beach lounge chairs and umbrellas is so nice and accommodating. Talk to him, he's a very interesting guy, and works very hard to make your stay on the beach as comfortable as he can. Thank you Michael for being so helpful and nice!!

This hotel is very nice and the room is clean and well maintained throughout. The staff is great and very helpful. It is above and beyond your standard Holiday Inn Express. Every room has a balcony with beach view. Private beach and not overcrowded.
