If you're planning a visit to The Pensacola Beach Resort, you won't have to worry about finding a parking spot, as the hotel offers free underground parking that guests find to be comfortable, convenient and easily accessible.

If you're coming to the island, be aware that you'll be charged each time you cross the bridge, but the great access to the beach and the idea of not having to get back in your car until it's time to leave makes up for parking issues. Overall, guests appreciate the convenience of the underground garage and easy access to the beach.
