“Seemed fine to me, not sure if it was the best available”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2008

We booked the Hampton Inn 2 months before our trip with HH points. Being a diamond member I thought we might get upgraded to a beach-front view, but sadly we weren't. Potentially they may have been booked way in advance of our booking, but who knows.

The room was fine, clean, came with microwave and fridge. Bathroom was OK, a little small, and there wre some nasty looking marks at the rear of the toilet - to me it looked like slovenly cleaning from the janitors who probably slosh a mop back there - there were slimy drips of "water" all down the 'backside'. Excuse the pun...

The Tiki bar was closed on July 4th - what?!?!?! That didn't make sense to us at all. The 2 pools were nice, a little on the small size, but most people come for the beach right? That was nice being able to walk to the beach from the hotel, literally steps away. Its an extremely well kept beach - immaculate from trash and people's left-overs.

Breakfast - gets VERY busy! but good selection of cereals, drinks, bread items and a couple of hot dishes that rotate each morning. All self-service so no need to leave tips.

Main downer of the Hampton Inn - no shuttle bus!! A ride to the airport = $40+tip.

Overall the hotel is nice, reminds me more of a business room rather than a holiday room - the decor was very business like. If this is rated #1 out of all places in Pensacola, the other places must be pretty bad - don't get me wrong, this place is perfectly acceptable, but I would rate it avererage or just above.

The Hampton Inn on Pensacola beach was a good hotel, but I was slightly disappointed for the price. When we checked in, we were given a room with a "sound side view." The room was large and had a refrigerator and microwave. The complementary Wi-fi was also nice. When I walked over to the window, I could see a maintenance area directly below us at the front of the hotel. It was a mess and really ruined the view. The staff at the front desk agreed to transfer us to a different room. If I had been willing to pay extra, I could have upgraded to the only remaining room on the beach side; however, it was on the first floor which meant it had no balcony, and the view was obstructed by the Tiki Bar. It wasn't a bad view, but why pay for an ocean view only to look at the Tiki Bar?

There were two outdoor pools, but they were both somewhat small and both were full with about 10 kids each. (The pool area at the Hilton next door was larger and MUCH nicer.) The beach was just beyond the pool and was easily accessible.

Breakfast was complimentary, and consisted of danishes, muffins, bagles, cereal, yogurt, juice, coffee, biscuits, and an egg dish that had ham and cheese in it. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't really good, either.

This hotel wouldn't be my first choice on Pensacola Beach.

Again, the reviews were right! We were very pleased with the Hampton Inn. The staff was great! The kids loved the beach by day and the pool by night. The hotel was within easy walking distance of the public beach, pier($1 per person), shopping, and restaurants. We would definitely stay there again!

What a GREAT hotel -- wonderful location & incredibly beautiful views on one of the best beaches I have ever experienced. The rooms were quite clean and the staff, extremely accommodating.

I used my Hilton HHonors points to stay at the hotel and was delighted that they had graciously upgraded my room upon arrival. Had we not been on such a tight schedule, I would have booked another night at this hotel.

The breakfast buffet was good and offered a wide variety of foods for all tastes.

Suffice it to say, I plan to visit Pensacola Beach later in the year.

This place is deserving of the great reviews it receives.
The location is excellent....right on the beach.
The rooms are large and are equipped with microwaves and mini refridgerators. The private balconies afford stunning views of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
The rooms are clean and are well maintained on a daily basis by an excellent staff.
The daily breakfast offers a wide variety of items and is worth getting out of bed before the 10 a.m. cut-off time and it's FREE!
You can rent umbrellas and chairs from a service called Lazy Days. Rentals are $5 per hour or $28 dollars per day. Lazy Days allows you to charge the rentals to your room if you so desire.
If you're hitting the beach late in the morning, the hourly rentals are worth considering...three or four hours of the beach may be all you want per day...the Florida sun is quite intense so slather on the sunblock...you'll still get your tan.
Finally two must do restaurants...Peg Leg Pete's and McGuire's Irish Pub. Peg Leg Pete's is just a short drive from the property and McGuire's is just across the bridge...be ready for that $1 toll when you come back across the bridge.
The Hampton Inn is a great place for families or anyone wanting to soak up a little sun on the beautiful beaches of Pensacola. Enjoy!

We recently chose to stay at the Hampton Inn, Pensacola Beach, based on tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The place was clean and well run. The staff (especially the cleaning staff) was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the normal Hampton Inn breakfast, good but not spectacular. Our room faced the gulf, beautiful views. We would stay there again!

Welcomed by a super friendly staff, this Hampton Hotel (as many others) just was great. But not only a great staff, also the cleanliness and awesome location, this hotel really delivers.

Although Pensacola Beach is a still developing area, this hotel right on the beach is not disturbed by any construction and the beach can be reached just through the lobby. Across the street, there are some restaurants and shops, only a supermarket is missing.

Make sure you book an oceanfront room to enjoy the beautiful ocean.
