Happy 4th of July!
We had a great time at Pensacola Beach! We got there at 9:45am and stayed until 3pm and even with a easy up shade, rash guard wearing and 3+ sunscreen applications we all got sunburn! But it was great, the sand was white, the water was clear and great temp, good/calm conditions and everyone could walk out a ways without it being too deep. We ...
... We hit some bad traffic just outside if Baton Rouge and lost us about an hour. Dinner stop in Biloxi Mississippi and then the last 120 miles to Pensacola! There were of course several other bathrooms stops sprinkled in there :) The kids went a little crazy when we got to our hotel, lots of pent up energy to burn but were happy and having a great time. We can't wait to hit the beach ...
... was anything but enjoyable with toddlers surrounding our row. We dreaded the 6 hour layover in Miami, but the time went by rather quickly. We had initially thought that we would venture out of the airport and kill some time shopping, but after an hour and a half getting through customs and passport checks and a sudden rainstorm, we decided to explore what turned out to be a ...

If you are interested in this topic, there is an interesting article here. Seeing several of these forts really gives you a good idea of how much money and effort went into trying to defend the young United States in the wake of ...

Apparently the Coast Guard was considering decommissioning it in the 80's and 90's, but sold it in 1995. The organization that owns it is currently in the midst of a massive renovation--they've already spent half of about $3 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Pensacola Beach
One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at!
We stayed at this Hampton Inn on the beach in October 2003 for 5 nights. Everything was perfect. The room was roomy, clean and the king bed extremely comfortable. The gulf view from our balcony was outstanding. The staff went out of their way to be friendly. They were always helpful whether you needed directions, extra towels, ect. The pool area was sparkling clean. The breakfast bar was the best we have ever had - the best variety and freshest food anywhere. No matter what time you went to eat, they always had it completely stocked from 6-10am. The friendly staff around the breakfast area were great. We cannot say enough good things about this hotel. If we visit Pensacola Beach again this will definately be where we stay!
A very, very pleasant experience
My husband, 2 year old daughter and I stayed at the Hampton Inn Pensacola Beach last September. We had a very enjoyable and positive experience. The Hampton Inn is not a luxury hotel and likely not meant to be....but it is very clean, immediately accessible to the beach, had exceptionally friendly staff and was very affordable. When we left, we felt rested, refreshed and pleased. I've stayed in luxury hotels and have often felt a bit "taken advantage of" in terms of value. The value with the Hampton Inn Pensacola Beach was excellent. And the view of the water was superb.
Our family of five was traveling a new route to visit the grandparents in Ohio. We had planned to overnight in Biloxi, Mississippi but decided to press on since we were ahead of schedule. Imagine our complete surprise when we took a short detail to see the beach in Florida and discovered this Hampton Inn. Our planned one night stay stretched to five, and we were very sorry to have to leave our newfound paradise.
The staff treated us so well that we plan to return next summer for another week. We're inviting friends and family to meet us there. No trip to Ohio next year!
We just spent four nights at this hotel. We enjoyed our stay. Our room
Two Thumbs Up!
The Hampton Inn, Pensacola Beach, is a newer hotel with a great view of the Gulf of Mexico. Gulf-view rooms are all facing the Gulf directly, no unsightly buildings or parking lots with these rooms! Bay view (back) overlook the hotel's parking lot, but it is landscaped nicely and you still have a beautiful view of the bay on the North side of the island. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Hotel is a bit on the expensive side ($189/night for Gulf view), but the hotel is clean and comfortable and sits directly on the beach. The rooms are spacious, but a little sterile. Perhaps this helps the housekeeping staff to keep up with the sand... The sand on the beaches here is like fine grained white sugar! All-in-all, a nice hotel. We give it a strong B+.
Came from the UK and were well pleased..
My family and I Spent 4 nights at the Hampton Inn on Pensacola Beach.
Sea view room with balcony was excellent, and staff, service was very good indeed. Nice to take breakfast outside watching the beach-front, we set ourselves up by the pool and took short walks directly to the sea for a cool off, then back to the pool. Front desk staff very helpful. Not much to do at night so I wouldn't suggest more than a few nights. Hampton Inn by Pensacola airport also of same high standard.
The best hotels we stayed in during 900miles of touring through Florida.
Felt like we were at home
This was the best hotel stay ever. The staff was always happy and helpful. Whoever owns this hotel truely cares about his/her workers and customers. I highly recommend this hotel.
It rained off and on during our stay of 3 days - but we had a fantastic time anyway. The staff at this hotel is so helpful and friendly. The rooms are larger than the average hotel room and I would definitely recommend the beach view rooms with balcony. We had a great view and when you have young children who need to nap, or when it's raining, nothing beats a oceanfront balcony! The breakfast is substantial and well-stocked. A+
Great Family Beach Hotel
Great beachside hotel for the family. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our family of five stayed 6 nights in an inland room in June 2003 for $129 per night. The continental breakfast was great. The beach was wonderful with lifeguards on-duty and two pools are available at the hotel.
Great hotel and location
This is the place to stay at Pensacola Beach. Nice hotel with balcony and ocean view for each room. Excellent free continental breakfast. Very friendly staff. No bar or restaurant, but many nearby. Cross the highway and there are several beach bars and restaurants with live music on the intercoastal water within walking distance.
