My 16 y/o daughter and myself were traveling from Tampa to Houston, so we needed a room halfway, which was Pensicola. I didn't want to spend much because literally all we needed was to lay our heads. The check in staff was very friendly. The hotel was not your average chain hotel. There was no elevator and we stayed on the 2nd floor, but not many steps to get to the 2nd floor. The beds were Queen size, with a simple, yet clean looking and smelling room. In fact, I smelled a hint of bleach which makes me happy. The beds had beautiful quilts for bedspreads instead of that yucky nylon bed spread like in other hotels.
There were definitely imperfections. The bathtub had stains on it's nonstick surface, but I could tell it was still clean. The floor looked like it could have been cleaner. The caulking could be replaced, and the fan in the bathroom, needed a new frame holding it on the ceiling. The room had a window unit, and you could see outside on one side where it should be sealed.
Other than that, we had nice pillows, a TV with cable (and HBO), free wireless, and coffee in the room. We only paid 32.00 so I did not expect much. For what we paid for, we got a deal. My GPS took us a very strange way to get there, so dont be confused if it seems like it is taking you in a round about way.
