“Updated Retro”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Sole is convenient to downtown and the civic center. It is an old, nicely renovated motel with doors opening up to a balcony. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was decorated with upscale fixtures and granite. There was wine and cheese in the evening in a small dining room and a continental breakfast. We were only there for one night and weren't in the room except to sleep, so it met our needs. I'm not crazy about the balcony, but we didn't see anyone or anything that looked suspicious. There was a farmer's market set up across the street on Saturday morning, so that was an unexpected surprise.

We've stayed here twice, both times to attend an event at the Bay Center. Very convenient location for that, just a 3-4 block walk. The Inn is an old motel that has been updated. The staff is super friendly and the rooms are clean. The breakfast and the happy hour are pluses. The small shower in the first room we had and a few signs of wear to the redecorating in that room keeps it from a 5. Neither was an issue on our second stay.

This was a lovely place situated in a great location which allowed us to walk Downtown. The weather was beautiful and warm which meant we spent a lot of time exploring the town for the short time we were there. This hotel had really friendly and welcoming staff, and the rooms were spacious, very clean and well decorated. Even though it overlooks a cross section of roads, the traffic there could never really be heard so don't let that put you off.

With the added bonus of breakfast (which we never took advantage of) and the 'cocktail hour' (free wine, beer and snacks between 5-7 each day) this place was a great little stop on our tour of the Gulf coastline.

There was ample on site parking for even the biggest of cars, and other guests seemed to be considerate to others in the levels of noise they made at certain times. All in all, this place was great and we would stay there again if we came back.

We recently spent a week at this motel which we chose based on Trip Advisor Reviews and a Lonely Planet Guidebook. Since we are traveling for 6 weeks, we probably spend more time in the room than more short term travellers. Same positive comments as recent posts….great location downtown for walking day or night, comfy room with a comfy bed, nicely decorated, adequate breakfast, nice happy hour (you don't find that in many places and it's a good place to meet other guests) and of course the staff… stellar! Owners….keep these wonderful staff there because they made us feel very welcome!

I think some reviews mentioned noise from the street and other guests talking in the parking lot or on balconies/walkways outside the room but this was not a problem for us even though we were there during a busy weekend (Spring Break, Gallery Night and the Elton John Concert). We found that the sound of the water in the fountain in the courtyard provided nice 'white noise' for sleeping and ear plugs are great for louder noises.

The only "downside" is that we ate way too many bar snacks, cheese and crackers and taco chips and dip during happy hour instead of having a decent dinner!!

We would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend this motel to our family and friends.

Room Tip: No elevator so choose the ground floor if you can't climb stairs.

What a wonderful find! This property is situated close to the convention center, close to downtown Pensacola and close to old town. It's a renovated property done with taste and class, and has really cute decor, too. Breakfast is standard with an added bonus of an evening "cocktail" hour for guests. And outdoor sitting area near a fountain adds charm. Best of all, it is so affordable AND has an amazing staff who are so very accommodating and friendly! In two words: Super Find!

My husband and I were in Pensacola for a convention, and weren't looking for the much out of our hotel because we weren't going to be spending much time there. However we were very pleasantly surprised by the Sole' Inn and suites. You absolutely couldn't beat the location. Situated just a few blocs from the civic center and right on North Palafox, you're in walking distance from great restaurants, night life, shows, and it's just right off the interstate. The rooms themselves were simple but well appointed. The staff at the front desk were extremely helpful, cheerful and polite. You will also be hard pressed to find a hotel that offers a small continental breakfast in the morning and complimentary beer and wine in the evening. All in all it was a great experience. If you have somewhere downtown in Pensacola you'd like to be, this is a great place to stop and stay over.
