Went back down in August, had a wonderful time, excellent staff and newly renovated rooms, will definitely go back next year. The private beach is a must and if the Blue Angles are in town you can get your own personal air show on the beach when the practice.

I booked through Travelocity. Do not go by the pictures that the hotel provides. This is by far the worst place that I have ever experienced in my life. Upon arrival I knew it wasn't going to be good just from first impressions. I went in and asked to see the room prior to checking in. The room was the... More

Stayed here on 7/8. Pics online lie. We arrived late and usually you need room key to access outer doors. They did not lock which was a security concern. Totally outdated from the 70's. The TV was mounted on a shelf darn near the ceiling. Carpeting dirty and sticky. Lysolled EVERYTHING before using.Turned the lights off to ensure there were... More

The location of the hotel was fine since we were close to the mall. The hotel was relatively clean, shower pressure was good, although it was either super hot water or super cold...nothing in between. Friendly staff. BUT none of the amenities were as advertised. The pool was broken. The ice machine was broken. The Wifi did not work at... More

We arrived pretty late to Florida & couldn't find a place so we were booked here through Expedia & when we got here was told that our reservation had been canceled. We showed the front desk lady our email of the reservation, I guess she figured that it was someone on their end that had made the mistake, because she... More

I was very happy with my room, the service and especially thankful to the lady behind the desk. She was very helpful. Great coffee at the Grab and Go breakfast, too! I would stay there again. I highly recommend.

Average hotel. Stayed two nights. Pool was extremely hot, room smelled like an old house. Friendly staff but had bad luck with kids running the halls at night keeping my family up and staff didn't seem to care when I complained twice. Wouldn't stay again but the stay itself wasn't terrible.

I was very surprised when my son and I drove up to find this Econo Lodge in this poor of shape. The grass was not cut, and there was trash all over the parking lot. I knew the reviews for this hotel was mixed. So I knew it was a 50/50 shot for the amount of money for the stay.... More

Even if I can't get a room in Pensacola/ Pensacola Beach in future, I won't want to stay in this hotel. I'd rather sleep in my car overnight. Very obvious dust and look like in construction or renovation state. Then they should never open for people to stay in - looks like whoever taking over the inn/ motel is trying... More
