Top tips for finding the perfect Pensacola Beach hotel

Located on Santa Rosa island, Pensacola Beach is one of the most beloved off-the-beaten-track beach spots in Florida. Most hotels in Pensacola Beach have a great sea view, but if opening the window and looking at the breathtaking beach is crucial to you, make sure to confirm with your hotel/motel that your room is facing south, towards Pensacola Beach.
As it would be expected for a somewhat beach resort area, most hotels right on Pensacola Beach are three stars or more, which means prices can be a bit steep. However, it is possible to save some money by staying in two-star accommodation options such as Surf and Sand Hotel and Best Western Beachside.
Those who wish to escape the crowds of Pensacola Beach might want to consider staying on the other side of Pensacola Bay Bridge. Just a few streets away from the bridge and a short drive from the popular white-sand beach, you’ll find multiple options, including Courtyard By Marriott, Residence Inn By Marriot, and the more affordable Sole Inn & Suites. They are located about 8 miles from Pensacola Beach.
Most resorts will have their own restaurants, and the menus are very much seafood-based. But travelers looking to explore more the authentic local cuisine should consider staying in downtown Pensacola, where they’ll find plenty of other choices. New World Inn and Lee House are both located near Palafox Street, known for its range of bars and restaurants, like the Old Hickory Whiskey Bar.
Young people traveling on a budget will want to stay there as it is a hub for art and music, as well as great nightlife in the Pensacola area, with the perk of offering cheaper accommodation than Pensacola Beach. BLEND Lounge and Vinyl Music Hall are both great venues, with hotel New World Inn being right nearby.
