Anyone around or been through Pensacola lately?
My hurricane delayed trip resumes next Tuesday and I'm curious if there are any major roads washed out from Dennis that were there previously? Any areas to avoid due to bad construction?
Of course you can't get a hotel room at a decent rate and my options were Ft. Walton, East Mobile or Ft Payne, AL for $130++ per night for anything of consistent Hampton Inn quality or $200 per night on the beach in Pensacola at the Hilton.
Lets see commute 1-1.5 hrs each way to save ~$50 per day or stay on the ravaged beach? I'll take the ravaged beach and Hooter's if its still there.
There's no way I'm risking a reservation at a Comfort/Quality/Sleep Inn type Arab hotel that varies widely in quality to save a few bucks. Been there, done that and I'm not sleeping in a room next to the camel stable if I don't have to.
