The hotel seemed to be clean and well kept. Business slow in early February and weather cool so we could not enjoy the nice fun filled pool, lazy river, etc. everything available for family fun with hotel on the beach with lovely view of the gulf. The staff was very polite and helpful. I didn't give it 5 stars because...

Hi Diane, thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We really enjoy learning what our guests liked and didn't like.

The pool/beach area of this hotel is seriously incredible. My family and I stayed here in August for about 4 days and we had such a great time lounging by the pool, enjoying the lazy river, and taking the 1 minute walk to the beach. The rooms are clean, staff is nice and helpful, and the tropical bar by the...

I loved the beach, the resort amenities, and the serenity. It was a convenient location, and the staff was lovely. The view from the balcony was beautiful! The room was decent, nothing special, but no problem for us. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed one night in the holiday Inn and the best thing is: you'll have a sea view. On both sides of the hotel you'll have a great view. The pools (inside and outside) are very welcoming. You have direct access to the beach and the bar is cool at night.

Great location, right on the beach! Beautiful lazy river, hot tubs, games, hammocks, firepits, staff and rooms! If you have a ocean side room, you get a spacious private balcony.

Loved this resort! Even though it was winter, we still went to the beach and hung out. LOVED the firepit by the pool! Perfect way to warm up after a chilly day at the beach. Room was great and hotel was walking distance to restaurants. Will return!

This property is in a wonderful location right on the white sand beach. Rooms are large and clean. Spent two nights here and glad we did. Weather is warmer than usual this time of year so it made for an enjoyable stay. Close to many good restaurants.

Its natural beauty is offset by our bright, modern lobby and stylish, comfortable guest rooms – including colorful Kids’ Suites designed with your family in mind. We’re all about fun here at the Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach hotel, and you’ll feel it from the front desk to the pool deck. Our pool is the best on the beach, with cascading waterfalls and a 250-foot seasonally heated Lazy River. There’s no reason to leave the resort, with Riptides Sports Grill and Beachfront Tiki Bar serving up delicious dining and crafty cocktails seven days a week. If you do decide to get out, we’re within walking distance of the beach’s best restaurants, nightlife and activities including charter fishing, paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking and biking. We’re also a quick drive to regional attractions such as the National Naval Aviation Museum, Fort Pickens, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Historic Downtown Pensacola, Pensacola Lighthouse, Blue Wahoos Baseball Stadium, Veterans Memorial Park and the Saenger Theatre.
