Have stayed here many times, usually off season. The staff is super friendly, the hotel common areas and rooms always in great shape. Many stays have been for a week or longer and they really make you feel like family!

The Holiday Inn Express Pensacola Beach does not allow pets. I believe the only lodging on Pensacola Beach that allows them is the Paradise Beach Motel. Beverly McCay General Manager Holiday Inn Express Pensacola Beach

The room rate includes the complimentary hot breakfast buffet. Be sure to enter the correct number of adults and children in your room reservation. We rarely have you produce a room key but on occasion, to keep local drop ins out, we do verify that diners are registered guests. (Same goes for our outdoor pool).

Is there anywhere to rinse off after checking out and enjoying the beach?
Yes. After checking out there is an outdoor shower & we will continue to issue you pool towels, you can get a key to the lobby restrooms, and enjoy the pool & beach.

My experience has been that this is a relatively quiet time for the region and the prices reflect it, and yet it's a gem of a time to visit! Still really balmy weather, the beaches relatively empty, the gulf gorgeous. I'm envious! It's one of my favorite times there.
