Portofino Island Resort & Spa: Portofino - Nice Place but....
We stayed at Portofino in 2008 and had a great time. We had a very nice two bedroom condo that was wonderful. Portofino is close enough to the restaurants but far enough for some quiet time.
Portofino is a full resort and includes a water Taxi down to the boardwalk. They have a number of pools and the Property is on the Bay as well as the Ocean. The Bar service was hit or miss. Overall I would give the service staff an "Average" but that might have been due to the crowd of guests overwhelming them.
The biggest downside to the resort is that they are not "On the Beach" you will need to walk across 98 to get there. It's not a long walk but it isn't like walking out of your room and onto the sand.
I guess this is Unique: We stayed at the Portofino during Memorial Day. For those who (like us) may not know Pensacola Beach hosts a Pride event over Memorial Day weekend. Some of the people and happenings were.... Interesting. It was all good fun though and everything we saw out of the ordinary made us laugh more than anything.

Navy Lodge: After the Gulf Hurricanes
The Navy Lodge system is intended for military families who are being transferred from assignment to assignment. The rates are based on the military member's rank. These facilities are not available to civilians, only to Military/DoD Civilians with current ID cards and DoD decals on their vehicle who are allowed base access.
"Reservations are accepted for all eligible personnel on an as-received basis. Official guests and visitors of the command may stay at Navy Lodges. Reservations are to be made by and guaranteed by the sponsor. Family members, staying at Navy Lodges without the military member, are required to show their identification at check-in. Guests of military personnel may stay at Navy Lodges provided the military member is present at check-in. Once a reservation is made it will be firm and you cannot be bumped. Reservations and room assignments are made without regard to rank or rate, or time of reservations."
Last year, this room was $55/night. We were on the third floor and there was an elevator and also a luggage cart. Our room had no lamps on the bedside tables - the outlet next to the bed did not work. But the room was nice - it had a refrigerator and a microwave and a coffee pot, and TV, and a view of the Gulf through the live oak trees. I wanted to write up the last couple of days, but I couldn't see to do it. I'd have needed a flashlight. There were no utensils in the room, although they could be obtained from the front desk.
The desk clerk said that they gave us the rooms before they had been completely renovated after the hurricanes last summer.
All the deficiencies had been remedied by 2008. There were bedside tables with lamps.
And this time our room even had a balcony. There was a playground out back for the children.
There was wi-fi in the room, although it was not free. It was $8.00/night.

Springhill Suites by Marriott: Springhill Suites on Pensacola Beach
Springhill Suites is a marriott brand that offers suites focused for the business traveller. This Springhill though is located right on the beach and is geared more towards the tourists. The Rooms are clean, the facilities are nice and the staff are extremely friendly.
The rooms are expensive though (Over $200 a night) so check for deals if you can.
There are a couple of pools and one build just for kids that is only about a foot deep. One side of the kids pull is like a shoreline and you gradually enter the water. There is also a fountain at this pool for the kids to play in.
The other pools were crystal clear. There is direct access from the Hotel to the white sand beaches.
They have a pantry in the lobby where you can get a quick water or soft drink. They run only $1.00 each which I thought was a bargain compared with what other hotels charge. After a day in the sun, we ran through here a couple of times.
