Hubby and I stopped here for a one night stay on a road trip. The staff was pleasant and helpful, and the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. We were able to walk to the pier, restaurants, and shops. Since it was the cooler, off-season we did not use the pool or beach

We really enjoyed our visit to Surf and Sand. Pool right outside our window with free donut and swan floats for the kids (while in the pool). We were on the bay side with good view of bay. Free bicycles to ride around on while we were here. Short walk across the street to the

First off, we reserved a top floor and got the middle floor. Secondly, the moment we walked in and turned the light on, we noticed that the desk lamp was very damaged. The lamp shade looked like someone had stabbed it multiple times with a knife and then thrown it across the

Hi brookemnt, thank you very much for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We take all of our guests' candid comments to heart so we can always strive to provide exceptional service, and it seems as though we definitely missed the mark during your recent stay. We are truly sorry for the issues with the room, and we appreciate your letting us know how we can improve. We are currently undergoing some improvements to the property, but that certainly does not excuse the state of any of our rooms to be the way it was during your stay. Please know we will be passing along this feedback and invite you to reach out to us directly if you would like to discuss these items further. We appreciate your patronage and hope to hear from you soon.

I would advise you to chose literally any other hotel. DO not stay here. I do not know why it’s advertised as a “hotel” when it’s clearly a motel. And the pool area is an uncomfortable sand & pool combination. It’s like they almost tried. Anyways, when we checked into our room,

Hi Alimarii, thank you for choosing to stay with us during your trip to Pensacola Beach and for taking the time to leave us this valuable feedback. We are very sorry about all the issues you experienced during your stay. We take all of our guests' candid comments to heart so we can always provide exceptional service, and it appears we definitely missed the mark during your recent stay. Please know these issues are not the norm, but that certainly doesn't excuse the fact that any one of our guests was uncomfortable during his or her stay. We are happy to report that property improvements are underway, and we hope we may be able to invite you back once the progress is complete and we can show you an extraordinary experience.

The Surf & Sand Hotel was clean and safe and overall a decent stay. My only issue was that there was a Harley Davidson festival going on and the entire town rumbled as a result. Breakfast was good. Service was good.

What is checkout time and can you check in early
Hi mitirato! While we hate to see our guests leave, checkout time at our hotel is 11am. You can request an early check-in by pre-registering with the hotel. We’ll place you on the early arrival list. During our busy season, it’s sometimes harder to accommodate early check-ins because the hotel is full. Our cleaning crew clean as fast as they can, but we like them to be thorough. We hope to welcome you to Surf and Sand soon!

Is smoking allowed?
I think that all rooms are smoke free. There are ample places to smoke outside though.

"Do not choose room 111. The door needs replacing!!"
"Room 326 was quiet"
"Bring lots of snacks and breakfast food!"
"As we are an older couple, we would have enjoyed recliner chairs or ottomans so we could get our feet up."
"Bar noise next door, so some may be bothered by that side. Top floor has better views. Elevator may be slow if busy, though."
