Margaritaville Beach Hotel

Margaritaville Beach Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The first hotel to open under the Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville brand, the Margaritaville Beach Hotel offers a relaxed, tropical atmosphere right on a beautiful stretch of sandy coastline. The hotel's white and blue color palette, wicker furnishings, and palm trees add to the beachy atmosphere, as do the seasonal live entertainment, and a poolside Tiki bar. Rooms are sophisticated, clean, and airy with huge balconies, flat-screen TVs, and free Internet. The sweeping views of the white sand beach and Gulf of Mexico, viewable throughout the property and from the sleek outdoor pool, are a highlight. This hotel is definitely unique for an area full of chain options, but some guests complain about jellyfish on the beach.

Crowne Plaza Hotel Pensacola Grand

Crowne Plaza Hotel Pensacola Grand Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 210-room Crowne Plaza at Grand Boulevard is located in a restored train depot from 1912, and the interior reflects this history, featuring dark mahogany moldings, brick walls, a grand chandelier, and plenty of natural light from skylights. Despite these details, the overall feel is definitely that of a mid-range property. Rooms have generic decor, but floor-to-ceiling windows and white linens make them feel bright and fresh. Amenities include a guest library, fitness center, and two restaurants, but some guests complain about train noise and lack of direct beach access. The business center, and the downtown Pensacola location near both the Civic center and the airport, appeal to business travelers.

Carillon Beach Inn

Carillon Beach Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Carillon Beach Inn is a 70-room, all-suite property with modern furnishings and sharp decor located on Lake Carillon in a sprawling, village-like resort complex. While the location doesn't offer direct beach access, the sand is less than a five-minute walk away, and guests get access to the many amenities of the Carillon Beach resort community. Suites are immaculately clean and comfortable with kitchenettes featuring stainless steel appliances. Cute, playful touches include sand dollar and fish-patterned pillows and chairs. Some suites have lovely fireplaces and outdoor private Jacuzzis, while all are equipped with flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. While there are few options for nearby off-site dining, Sweet Taste Wine Bar is located within the property.

La Quinta Inn & Suites Panama City Beach Pier Park

La Quinta Inn & Suites Panama City Beach Pier Park Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 90-room Quinta Inn is a great value hotel in Panama City Beach -- for visitors who don't mind the 10-minute walk to the sand (which involved crossing a busy street). Room decor is basic but cheery with baby blue accent walls, colorful, patterned curtains, and modern tech features such as flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. All rooms also have work desks, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers (which are oddly placed in the bathrooms). And the freebies at this hotel are extensive, including free breakfast, free parking, and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. In addition, pets are allowed, and there's a nearby dog park. Also on offer: laundry facilities, a convenience store, a fitness center, a business center, and an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. All are adequate but unexceptional; the fitness center is cramped, with only three cardio machines, and the pool, though well-kept, looks out over the parking lot. Nonetheless, this hotel is a solid budget-friendly option.

Holiday Inn Pensacola-N Davis Hwy

Holiday Inn Pensacola-N Davis Hwy Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This trendy Holiday Inn may not stray far from the ordinary, but it does provide a contemporary, comfortable place to stay. The lobby is furnished with eclectic textiles and artwork, a big flat-screen TV, and decorative fireplace. Modern furniture and vibrant colors make the hotel feel more upscale than some chains. Each of the 114 rooms features a colorful accent wall, and big, comfortable beds with crisp white linens, but generic bathrooms with shower/tub combos. Amenities include a fitness center, free Wi-Fi, and an outdoor pool. This Holiday Inn is a great value pick for travelers looking for close proximity to the airport rather than the beaches.

Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard

Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard lives up to the Marriott brand's reputation for efficiency and convenience. This 174-room hotel offers a lobby bar, mini market, big outdoor pool, and (average) fitness center. Rooms are spacious, with generous bathrooms, although decor is generally dated and bathroom fixtures are showing their age. Despite some guest complaints about these cosmetic features, rooms do have flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and free Wi-Fi. The location at the edge of another resort means guests have easy access to the Sandestin Resort golf courses, day spa, tennis courts, shopping, and more, and Miramar Beach is a short drive away.

30-A Suites

30-A Suites Rating: 3.0 Pearls

A family-owned property in Santa Rosa Beach, 30-A Suites offers 15 individually decorated suites that are big on space. With flat-screen TVs in the living room and bedroom, upscale kitchens with granite countertops, and a convenient washer and dryer, these modern suites have many comforts of home. Perks include free Internet and nice finishes such as hardwood floors and balconies, but the hotel is about one mile from the nearest beach, and will not accommodate children under 12.

Comfort Inn Destin

Comfort Inn Destin Rating: 2.5 Pearls

The Comfort Inn Destin's 100 rooms don't stray from the hotel chain mold. Rooms are clean with private balconies, mini-fridges, and microwaves, but decor is outdated and beds are topped with comforters, not duvets. Excellent freebies include Wi-Fi, a hot breakfast, and daily newspaper. The outstanding feature of the hotel is a big outdoor pool surrounded by palm trees, and there is also an indoor pool and fitness center. But the hotel is not located directly on the beach (it's across the street), and some guests complain of highway noise.

Wingate by Wyndham - Destin

Wingate by Wyndham - Destin Rating: 2.5 Pearls

Wingate by Wyndham in Destin offers 94 big, comfortable rooms with microwaves, mini-fridges, and flat-screen TVs. Some extra perks make this hotel an especially good value, including free daily breakfast and free Wi-Fi. It's a budget property, so amenities are basic -- the pool is small and the fitness center has only a handful machines. The location is a quiet one, off of Destin's main highway to the north, rather than to the south, toward the beach.

La Quinta Inn & Suites Panama City

La Quinta Inn & Suites Panama City Rating: 2.5 Pearls

The 119-room La Quinta Inn & Suites Panama City has offerings typical for a basic budget hotel: bed, TV, free breakfast, and free Wi-Fi. While this property is conveniently located near Panama City 's shops and restaurants, some aspects of the hotel are in need of an upgrade. Common complaints include paper-thin walls and elevators that are constantly out of service. Highlights include simple rooms stocked with mini-fridges and microwaves and a sunny outdoor pool with an area to sunbathe. The hotel has a pet-friendly attitude that appeals to some travelers and leaves others wishing for a quiet night's sleep.
