Go somewhere else!!
TAKE MY ADVICE....AND GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!! At one time, the facility was nicer/and better managed...not ANYMORE. The room was poorly cleaned. Carpet horribly stained throughout the room. One of the beds clearly had not had its sheets changed, due to the vibrant bloodstains found on the sheets. OMG!!!! But the list goes on.....Toilet dispenser was completely empty/had to look for another roll (found a single roll under sink). Kleenex dispenser on back of stool was empty. Provided three towels, two handtowels and two washcloths for two adults (they were thin enough you could see through them). Keep in mind that there is absolutely NO cleaning service or towel exchange UNLESS you want to pay extra (seriously??). The tub had hair laying all over it/shower curtain was dirty and moldy. Two bathroom size trash receptacles were provided/but if you stay more than one night, there is no where to take your trash that has overflowed from your "barbie-size" wastecans (and remember, no one is going to check your trash status unless you pay). The ironing board was broken and couldn't be folded down, which meant that there was little room to hang your clothes in the closet. Only two old hangers were available for hanging up your clothes. The light bulb in the floor lamp and in the outside entry light were burned out/had to remove bulbs from other locations to have adequate room light. The windows are so loose in their frames that they rattled all night long when there was a breeze.

Pensacola: Oyster Bar Restaurant or Smaller Crab House type near NAS bridge AND Dolphins By the Bay
Does anyone know if the Oyster Bar Restaurant is still open? It was on the way to the Naval Base NAS Pensacola, and further down still, after the road narrows, there was another seafood restaurant that was much more casual.
The restaurant I'm hoping someone remembers was in existence back around 1981 through 1986 and it was located near Barrancas or on the main road to the Naval Station.
I can't remember the name for the life of me, but it was always one of my favorites (when I lived there 20 years ago).
I would suspect it suffered hurricane damage, as the water was high there near the little wooden bridge on a good day.
If anyone knows of it, please let me know, would you? How do you remember it? Even if it no longer exists...
You could go in and sit at a little wooden table with a red checkered tablecloth, order a pound of crab legs at a reasonable price, and crack eat and drink cold beer for hours. It was more of an event than a restaurant. I loved their oysters on the half shell too - the prices were unbelievable compared to what I've had to pay for "imported" raw oysters at the Seafood restaurant at the Docks...(but they were tasty too!).
The other one, I'm almost sure is gone due to Hurricane Ivan..It was on the north side of Gulf Breeze, on the water, east of the bridge I believe...You had to take a small dirt-type road to get back to it if I recall correctly. The atmosphere, the wonderful service, and the taste of the Rainbow Trout there will stay with me till my memory goes. I hope that memory of the taste comes back to me every now and then - I haven't had Rainbow Trout (Pecan Crusted at that!!) since I left there in 1986. The last time I searched for it or called the visitor's bureau (which I was the administrative assistant at for a year or so, at that time) I was told that they had suffered severe damage and that it was closed.
AHHHH, thanks for the memories..any and all "refreshers" appreciated!
Re: Pensacola: Oyster Bar Restaurant near NAS bridge
Just ran across your question - the Oyster Bar did indeed close just this last spring - the original owners (50 years in business) sold to new owners, and these new folks apparently ran the place into the ground in very short order. Closed in April/May t2008 timeframe. SO sad - great seafood place. Now we have the Marina Oyster Bar out on Bayou Texar, a worthy successor for the mantle of Best little local seafood place in Pensacola.
Travel Tips for Pensacola
Go to the beach!
Going to the beach in the morning and visiting my grandparents or sightseeing in the afternoon. I love the white sand, the warm, clear water, and the relaxing sound of the waves on the shore.
Sometimes the beach can be crowded, but you can always drive along the Scenic Highway (Hwy 98) and park beside the road and find a secluded stretch of beach all for yourself.
perdido key is a beautiful gulf barrier island located 20 miles southwest of downtown pensacola. perdido key has a beautiful white sand beach and a number of restaurants and bars. on perdido key is a section of the gulf islands national sea shore and gulf state park. perdido key is not as crowded as more famous pensacola beach. see my perdido key pages for more information.

400 E. Chase St.
Voted BEST CAJUN RESTAURANT by New Orleans Magazine, 9 years running For my Pace friends,Coperland's is fancy eating.For my Louisanna buddies, it is all comfort foods-like
finding a McDonald's in France.For a taste of New Orleans, order the shrimp etouffee, $8.95.
It's shrimp in a dark roux sauce seasoned with garlic, green onions and spices,served over white rice.
We went to find Fort Barrancas, to take the 2 p.m. tour. In front of the fort was the Water Battery, which was initially constructed by the Spanish in 1797. The guns in this battery were designed to fire directly across the water - skipping along the surface until they hit the hull of a ship. So no problem with trajectory or anything like that. We went by the water battery (which is whitewashed) and had to turn around and go back to access the main fort visitor's center.
There is a guided tour of Fort Barrancas (on board the Naval Air Station)everyday at 2:00 p.m.
There is a guided tour of the Advanced Redoubt (on board the Naval Air Station) on Saturday at 11:00 a.m.
Fort Barrancas sits on a bluff overlooking the entrance to Pensacola Bay. The natural advantages of this location have inspired engineers of three nations to build forts. The British built the Royal Navy Redoubt here in 1763 of earth and logs. The Spanish built two forts here around 1797. Bateria de San Antonio was a masonry water battery at the foot of the bluff. Above it was earth and log Fort San Carlos de Barrancas. American engineers remodeled the water battery in 1838 and built a masonry fort on the bluff, connected by a tunnel to the water battery. This is the current Fort Barrancas. A $1.2 million, eighteen-month restoration project led to its reopening in 1980.
