  • One of my favorite places in the world! I wish that I never had to leave. Everything I need is right there. Bars, restaurants, shopping, solitude, fishing.  more »
  • This is the best beach in all of the panhandle! You have the historic fort, it isn't very crowded, the beauty of the area is unbelievable. I would stay here year round if I could!  more »

Where to stay in Pensacola

You'll find places to stay throughout Pensacola, but reserve a place downtown for the best local atmosphere and access to nearby beaches. Downtown Pensacola is on the water, and it features a collection of inns and bed and breakfasts in historical buildings and upscale tower hotels. The national chain hotels and motels along Interstate 10 by the Davis Highway and Pensacola Blvd. exits provide budget-friendly options within driving distance of downtown. It might be tempting to choose one of the budget motels along Highway 90 just west of downtown, but these reside in a rundown area. If you're arriving to spend most of your time by the ocean, stay on Pensacola Beach or Perdido Key, which sit just outside the city limits.
