Beautiful ocean view

View of blue/green Gulf was spectacular! Balcony was a treat each evening. Quiet room with comfortable King-size bed was very relaxing. Breakfasts were quite good too. A bar in the hotel would have been the icing on the cake, but none was to be found.

We love that you enjoyed your room and our stunning views. With 3 liquor stores on the island, a fridge in all rooms, and bars within walking distance we hope the "no bar" issue won't keep you from coming back. We hope to host you again and again.

Beachfront hotel one mile from Natl Park.

Pros: Fabulous location on the beach. The building is just 8 floors so feels intimate and friendly. Staff are amazing. Lobby and rooms feature local artists
Cons: Hallway traffic audible, along with bathroom vents sending along sounds of other's people's music/hairdryers/etc. Wish rooms were more soundproofed.
Location: Excellent location with National Park a mile away, National Seashore (birds) over the bridge, great local restaurants, 20 min from airport. Beaches!!!
This was the best beach resort experience ever. The hotel is right on the beach, all rooms have balconies on the beach. Unspoiled, white sand beaches, with the National Park one mile up the road from this hotel. Nice bike path into town (just 1/2 mile) and up to the Park. The park has miles of beaches on both sides of the road, with campgrounds and historic Fort Pickens at the very end. The "center" of town is within walking distance and features a lot of nice restaurants and cafes. Only one chain restaurant that I could see, all the rest seem to be locally run. We were there in the off-season so everything was uncrowded and relaxed; not sure how it would be during busy times.

A Nostalgic Journey With A Happy-Ending

Pros: Staff was always on point and the buffet was always great with the staff doing a great job. The room updates were ideal.
Cons: They were updating the internet during our stay, which was the only improvement needed
Location: With all rooms gulf side, it was already a winner; the location is perfect in that it is near all restaurants and shopping, yet feels isolated.
My wife and I had not yet taken a summer vacation; she wanted to drive around Florida. But, I convinced her that we should take a nostalgic journey to the Dunes Hotel, now a Holiday-Inn Express. We always enjoyed the Dunes in the 80's as it had held memories of our fun with the children when they were young, with their "turtle float" in the Gulf of Mexico. Well, Holiday-Inn has outdone itself; kept the quaint charm and added a wonderful breakfast buffet, needed room updates, and A great staff from front desk to clean-up. I give them 100 per cent!

Back again

Pros: Easy access to a nice beach; great view of the Gulf; good daily breakfast; staff couldn't be more accommodating.
Cons: A restaurant, even a sandwich shop, would be a nice addition.
Location: Easy access to several nice restaurants. We don't look to do much other than rest and relax.
Another great trip to the beach. Weather could have been better, but even under the clouds and daily rain, we were on the beach every day of the week but one. Hotel staff and accommodations were great.

Staff treated us like royalty.

Clean, quiet, beautiful, scenic... and the positive adjectives go on and on. We opted to stay an extra day just because we enjoyed the atmosphere so much. The view of the gulf was awesome and we even kept the door open at night so we could fall asleep to the waves crashing on the beach. We even saw dolphins swim by all the way from our balcony.  The hotel has been there six years but it is so well kept that it looks nearly brand new. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!
