“Understated Elegance with a Great Location”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Walking distance to the historic downtown Pensacola. Nicely appointed room that was freshly painted and nicely furnished. Very comfortable bed. Great staff was very helpful in recommending areas and things to do. Very clean room and friendly staff make this a place that I would recommend for sure. When, I come to Pensacola I will loook no further and just book the Sole again. Great Happy Hour onsite, a great way to meet your neighbors.

Room Tip: All the rooms faced onto the court, so I don't think you could get a bad one.

This is an old 1960's motel that has been revamped to be very modern and hip. The people who run it may be owners, or they're the best employees ever. They were very knowledgeable and helpful even to people who stopped in and weren't their guests. Where I imagine the old swimming pool used to be they have made a patio with a large fountain and comfortable seating. In the evenings they serve wine, beer, and munchies to guests and it was a pleasure to take ours outside to that patio before heading off to dinner. Then they provide a full breakfast, including fruit salad, bagels and cream cheese, and the other usual stuff. I would definitely stay here again. The room was old fashioned, so small. But it was really beautiful. And the location can't be beat. It's a few blocks to the docks, great restaurants, bars, and parks.

Loved this hotel - great location, comfortable room, and a surprise - Happy Hour. It's easy to find off the highway and conveniently located in downtown Pensacola and from there - easy to get to restaurants and other attractions. Great people, too.

We stayed here before and after a sailing trip in the Pensacola/Mobile area. The rooms were very clean, staff were young, cheerful and helpful. Included in the room rate are a free continental breakfast in the morning (many kinds of bread and juices, bagels, danish, oatmeal, grits, fruit salad, coffee, tea) and happy hour with snacks from 5-7. The bathroom was not as updated, with a small-ish shower stall, retro sink and toilet. The motel is located within walking distance of many good bars and restaurants on S. Palafox and the walk to the Pier is only about one mile where there are a couple of other good restaurants.

Room Tip: Any floor would be OK because there are steps and an elevator.

On our tour through North Florida we stayed here three nights and enjoyed the great location in downtown Pensacola. The rooms are large and very modern, each has a slightly different design - a bit like a boutique hotel.
Amanda and Justin from the front desk were superfriendly and very helpful preparing a surprise for my parents` wedding anniversary and recommending things to do in Pensacola.
They do not have a gym but offer a voucher for the local YMCA that is just a 2 minutes walk away.
They also have a laundry and offer you the detergent for free.
The breakfast was OK, even though the fruit salad was sometimes frozen and the breakfast room is quite small and can get crowded sometimes.I think it would be awesome if they would work together with the Krispy Kreme Donut place nearby to add some espresso and donuts...The happy hour with beer, wine, tortilla chips and cheese in the beautiful courtyard is an amazing idea that I have not seen in any other hotel!!!
Really great value for your money, that is for sure!

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.
