Looking For A Vacation Stop. [Aug. 31st, 2009|05:34 pm]
Pensacola and Surrounding Areas


Hello, I'm new here. I grew up in Pensacola for a while when I was little, and visited every year for quite some time. I am looking to take a vacation to Pensacola Beach in September. Probably around the 17th.

I was wondering what the best hotels are that are reasonably priced, and close to the beach (basically, get up, walk out the door, and go to the beach). Will the higher summer rates be over by then? Is the Dunes Hotel on Fort Pickens closed? Their website is way out of date.

Also, that's not hurricane season, is it?

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Can't help much on the hotels, but rates should be down by then. Yes, it's still hurricane season and will be until December 1.

Dunes is closed, but there is a holiday inn express in the same building that it used to be in.

The hilton is really nice- but probably pretty expensive. Any hotel you find out on the beach is going to be "get up, walk out the door and go to the beach" so just find the cheapest one you can.

i work on the beach, and the hampton inn is just as nice if not nicer than the hilton, and much much cheaper, but like she said^^^ any hotel on the beach is a get up and walk place. good luck!

I don't know much about the hotels on the beach, but historically, September has been the most active month for hurricane season.

You may want to reconsider the month you come.
