A Great Location and Home Base for Gulf Visit

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 1, 2007

Marina Bay Resort is a time share/motel. The rooms vary and most are variations of a studio type room. They had messed up my reservations so I stayed in two different rooms. If I hadn't stopped to check if they had a room available for me a day early I would have had to stay elsewhere for one night. Their reservation system is in need of a serious upgrade depending on when you call and with whom you speak the availability can change.

Otherwise I really enjoyed this place. I was there for a music festival at the Landing Park, just a short walk away, so was glad to have this as a home base. The pool wasn't open--that was too bad. However, we were on the Gulf. If you can get a variation of the Studio room. They have kitchens, bunk beds and all the ammenities. The regular rooms don't have these things and it can make a difference in your budget.

You need to get a key to use the laundry or the workout room. I would recommend both. rooms are very reasonable and the location is great. The place is clean and housekeeping is responsive.

Unique Quality: The wonderful thing about the Marina Bay Resort is the location. It is right next to downtown, the Landing park, the Gulf and centrally located to Pensacola, Destin, Beaches etc. The downtown area has good places to eat, hang and get coffee. I recommend Maas coffee shop. The place seems like it attracts guests that stay busy and are eager to share tips. The Library is within walking distance if you don't travel with a laptop--I don't. You can use the computers for free. It is right next to the Indian Burial Mound, several shops and a grocery store. All the rooms are non-smoking which is great but it also means smokers congetrate around the stairs. I would stay here again for sure and try to get the studio for my whole stay. It was only $10 more than the room with a King--and an extra loud AC.

Marina and Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 18, 2005

We spend the winter at space available condos through an organization for retired military called AFV (Armed Forces Vacations). Some of the condos are also available to the general public as an ordinary hotel or motel. The Marina Bay Resort is a former hotel which has been converted into condo units.

We had the Waterfront Admiral Suite but it was off season, so it would have been $99/night. A Courtyard room with a King Bed would be $55/night and a Courtyard Queen with a kitchen would be $59/night or $349/week

The most expensive time of year is May 30, 2005 through Sept 4, 2005

The rates for that timeframe are:

Admiral Suite.. Stateroom.. Queen Kit.. King/2DB.. Studio

*Waterfront $149.. $129.... $104... $99.. $79
*Courtyard $139.. $119.... $94 ...... $89.. $74
*Parking Lot $129.. $109..... $84.... $79.. $69

.

Unique Quality: An Admiral Suite is basically two motel rooms which have been made into one unit. On one side was a king sized bed, with two end tables - one with a phone, a large mirrored closet, a dresser with a TV on it and a table. There was a bathroom, a hall closet, and a walk-out deck which looked out on the marina. The second room also had a bathroom and hall closet and a hall table. Inside the room was a full kitchen (stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, utensils - but NO dishwasher), a table, two couches one of which was a sofa bed, and another walkout deck.

Not all of the rooms look out on the water - some look out on the courtyard. The courtyard has a heated pool a jacuzzi and shuffleboard courts. Some rooms face the parking lot.

Directions: From the West
I-10 to Pensacola. Exit on 110 & follow this to Hwy 98. Follow Hwy98 to Fort Walton Beach. On Hwy 98 one block east of Captain D's Restaurant.
