Hi,
I can say that the facility is pretty decent. Most guys coming out of DOC like it because of some of the different options. Some say better food, they have air conditioning and show movies on the weekends.

For visit... it's one large room and they stopped allowing people to go outside after the smoking ban. There are only vending machines and the prices are up there (ex. salad bowl $6 or slice or cake $5). I saw them go up twice in one year. The guards tell you what table you have to sit at and all inmates face the same direction. If you want to take pictures, he will have to purchase from canteen prior to visit.

Not sure where you live or will travel from there are a few hotels down the road from them Comfort and Holiday Inn, I believe a few cheaper ones. Pensacola is only a 20-25 min drive so if you find a better rate and have a car.

good luck with his transfer
