Upon check-in there was a belligerent man at the front desk. The front desk person Caitlin handled him quickly and effectively while checking us in simultaneously. I was impressed to say the least. Great room, great location

Beautiful ocean view

View of blue/green Gulf was spectacular! Balcony was a treat each evening. Quiet room with comfortable King-size bed was very relaxing. Breakfasts were quite good too. A bar in the hotel would have been the icing on the cake, but none was to be found.

We love that you enjoyed your room and our stunning views. With 3 liquor stores on the island, a fridge in all rooms, and bars within walking distance we hope the "no bar" issue won't keep you from coming back. We hope to host you again and again.

Beachfront hotel one mile from Natl Park.

Pros: Fabulous location on the beach. The building is just 8 floors so feels intimate and friendly. Staff are amazing. Lobby and rooms feature local artists
Cons: Hallway traffic audible, along with bathroom vents sending along sounds of other's people's music/hairdryers/etc. Wish rooms were more soundproofed.
Location: Excellent location with National Park a mile away, National Seashore (birds) over the bridge, great local restaurants, 20 min from airport. Beaches!!!
This was the best beach resort experience ever. The hotel is right on the beach, all rooms have balconies on the beach. Unspoiled, white sand beaches, with the National Park one mile up the road from this hotel. Nice bike path into town (just 1/2 mile) and up to the Park. The park has miles of beaches on both sides of the road, with campgrounds and historic Fort Pickens at the very end. The "center" of town is within walking distance and features a lot of nice restaurants and cafes. Only one chain restaurant that I could see, all the rest seem to be locally run. We were there in the off-season so everything was uncrowded and relaxed; not sure how it would be during busy times.
