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!
Nice hotel but a bit overpriced
We just spent four nights at this hotel. We enjoyed our stay. Our room
was a gulf view with a balcony. We were glad we splurged on the gulf
room. However, the room smelled like mold from the minute we walked in.
I talked to the front desk. The hotel was full so checking into another
gulf room wasn't an option. Every time we entered the room we noticed
the bad smell. But, we quickly adjusted and didn't notice it as much.
It was bearable, but disappointing for $150 per night (with a
discounted rate). The hotel was quite clean otherwise. The staff were
wonderful. They went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The
breakfast bar was fantastic! It is actually three bars full. Note: No
meat and only hard boiled for eggs. But lots of other choices. We
especially loved the fresh fruit salads. We don't get fruit that good
in Kansas! The kids were glad they served Krispy Kreme doughnuts!
Really there is a lot of variety. You won't go hungry! They have trays
available if you prefer to take breakfasts to your own room. (Some
other hotels prohibit you taking any breakfast foods to your rooms.) We
all experienced our first jellyfish stings. The hotel has a vinegar
spray at the front desk that will help ease the sting. After the first
two visits to the front desk for spray, they provided me with a nice
small vinegar spray bottle to keep with us at the beach. The hotel has
no control over the jellyfish. It was just unfortunate they were there
at the same time we were. The stings were bearable though and we were
there to enjoy the beach so we continued to swim. The surf was too
rough for the kids a couple of days, but hubby and I really enjoyed
boogie boarding in it. We even got to see dolphins swimming just off
the shore one day. Awesome!! Nice pools, but we spent most time at the
beach or looking off our balcony at the beach. Beautiful white sand
that clings to everything!!! Nice for sandcastles. Lots of seashells to
find. Bring your own beach umbrella or be prepared to pay $$.
Hotel has great location on the beach. Expensive but worth it to be so near the beach with three kids. Just don't expect a fancy room for the money and you'll love the Hampton at Pensacola Beach.
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.

We had a great time relaxing at Fort Pickens. Nita went for a nice long bicycle ride along the coast. She was flying - until it was time to turn around. Suddenly the truth dawned - she was flying because the wind was helping. The return trip was against the wind!

After a grueling five days of driving, it was time to find a nice campground and hang out for a few days. My plan was to stay at the state park on the beach near Destin. But the polar vortex spoiled things, so I found an RV park near Pensacola instead. The temperatures were in the 30's at night, and although it was only in the 50's during the day, at least it was sunny! I enjoyed a walk on the beautiful beach and a couple fantastic sunsets over the ...
... we drove around the area and checked out the beach and walked on the pier. What we noted was that the beach sand is very white and very fine, almost like sugar. While on the pier, we saw a couple sea turtles, but no fish or dolphins. We then drove into Fort Walton Beach looking for what they call their historical district, but never found what we would want to get out and ...

All told, my family took up two rows at graduation, and before I go any further, I would like to thank everyone in attendance. It really meant a lot to me.
