Default Looking for boat friendly lodging

Buddy and I are coming down towards the end of June for a long weekend and are trying to find a place that has a slip. We've done a hotel a few times and used the Shoreline Park ramp but now that it is summer there is going to be a lot more people and traffic and most likely difficult to park a truck and boat in a hotel parking lot. We've been searching VRBO but there is not a lot of availability and it gets pricey. I saw an old thread of a hotel in FWB that has a ramp and slips but it is booked during our time frame. Open to more than just Pensacola but would like to be located near a pass.

Just hoping someone might know of something we haven't seen yet.

You can always find a transient slip at any of the local Marinas

Pirates Bay and Sandpiper Cove were both more expensive than we were planning on spending but may have to raise the budget for convenience.

An alternative is to anchor your boat. I've stayed at the Quality Inn in Gulf Breeze at the foot of the bridge and done this for a weekend without any issues. I did take all the valuables out of the boat.

I've had good luck finding house rentals on airbnb and vrbo that have piers/slips. The prices are usually comparable and you can sometimes get a place that is in the back of a bayou where there's not as much boat traffic to beat your boat on the pier too much.
