The hotel is not adjacent to other hotels, so there is more room to spread out on the beach. The staff is friendly and the hotel is clean. The hotel atmosphere is very nice and inviting. The Jimmy Buffet theme is subtle and enjoyable. Our Gulf View King room was very spacious and clean. Theven balcony was nice with a great view of the Gulf. The hotel is within minutes of many local restaurants and Night life spots. We really enjoyed our trip and stay.

You can't beat the location! The hotel is directly across the street from beach and pier. Easy walking! Sound side (quiet water) is out back of hotel, and very relaxing area with a hammock, gazeebo with grill to use, a fire pit and plenty of sitting areas. Pool is excellent. Hotel offers FREE bicycles, kayaks, and paddle boards to use for it's visitors! FREE breakfast (we had sausage gravy and biscuits and it was delish!), waffles, donuts and breads, cereals, milk, juice, and the coffee is fresh (and coffee can be had anytime of the day or night!) The hotel is older but it has been remodeled, and is CLEAN and beds are comfy! ALL the staff, whether it be house keeping, laundry, front desk, breakfast servers, or maintenance, they all greeted us with a big smile and asked us how we were doing and asked if there was anything we needed. Any time we did need anything they were very quick to respond, and were happy to do so! This hotel may not be the newest or the fanciest, but all the things that matter made up for it!

The Emerald Isle is a great place to stay on Pensacola Beach. All rooms face the gulf and the ammenities are top notch. The entrance is a little tough to find, especially after dark, and if your accomodations are on the 17th floor, be sure to ask for the elevator code...access to the top floor is restricted. We found the code in the welcome package afterwards, but there was no indication as to what it was and we played phone tag with management for a while before someone finally advised us. Other than that, we had no complaints whatsoever.

Pensacola Beach is an unincorporated community on Santa Rosa Island, part of a 150-mile stretch of barrier islands running from Mississippi to Florida. Downtown Pensacola is 11 miles away and accessible via bridges. A boardwalk lines the landward side, along Casino Beach. Fort Pickens, built in 1834, is at the western tip of the island, about 6 miles away.
