Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach

Reviewed 1 March 2012

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort at the end of February. While the weather was not cooperating with our vacation, the staff at the hotel was warm, friendly, and very helpful. The room was very nice and the queen bed was soft and comfortable. The four hot tubs gave us plenty of options to stay warm in the cool weather.

We plan to come back to Pensacola Beach next may and the Holiday Inn Resort is our destination hotel!

Looking for a hotel as a stop over from Miami to Houston and found that this hotel was less expensive and nicer than any on the freeway. Only 15 minutes from the I10 it was well worth it. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and happy hour was great! The food was excellent and the service amazing. Simone was an excellent waitress my diet coke never got half empty. The hotel was very clean and the front desk service was great. The room was very spacious and very clean. We loved the balcony it was nice to sit on and look at the ocean. It was to cold to use the lazy river but I will defiantly be back to try that. Overall this was the best hotel stay I have had in Pensacola and we will be back soon!

We are from Pensacola and have spent time at other hotels on Pensacola Beach but I have to say this one is the best we have stayed at on Pensacola Beach. The hotel was very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, They all had a pleasent smile on their face. We were on the 6th floor on the gulf side.... What a Beautiful view. We spent our super bowl Sunday at the hotel bar Riptide, Riptide had excellent view of several TV's and the chicken wings are great. We enjoyed our stay and will be back very soon.

This resort hotel was awesome from the moment we walked in the door. The lobby was beautiful and spotless, and the feeling was like walking out of the hustle and bustle and into a getaway. The entire staff was very nice and helpful. From the front desk, room service, riptides restaurant, and the housekeeping staff; they were all friendly, service minded and were genuinely concerned with making sure our stay was awesome. The entire facility was beautifully decorated, very clean and the feel of being in a beach house, not a hotel room. I cannot say enough about this resort. I have stayed in hotels around the country and have never found a hotel this nice and with a complete staff that makes you feel so good and is so service minded. I could go on and on, but I don't think there are enough complementary adjectives to give this hotel and staff the credit it deserves.

Room Tip: Come ready to relax a!nd enjoy a wonderful getaway and vacation

Great location right on the beach. New hotel, nice and clean. Small enough to not feel like a convention hotel. Very nice staff. Pool and beach are gorgeous. Rooms are on the larger side, looking over the gulf. Awesome beach. Tons to do around here. Very nice surprise of you are looking for a resort on a smaller scale. Can't miss.

Room Tip: Make sure to get the gulf view, woth the extra money.higher floor.

Traveled here in November 2011 for the Blue Angels Homecoming show/100th Anniversary of Naval Aviation. It was pretty cold that week in Pensacola! I had been looking forward to this trip for a while, and the hotel did not disappoint. It was brightly decorated and had ample free parking. It is one of the higher buildings on Pensacola Beach and is lit up at night. I had requested a high-floor room simply for the view of the Gulf. Pensacola Beach is one of my favorite places and the room was perfect! There was a small balcony with two chairs; I would have loved to have spent more time on the balcony but it was just too chilly and windy. The room was very nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. I spotted the pool and lazy river from my room; it looked very nice. The hotel is very convenient to restaurants and attractions in Pensacola Beach, and a short drive over the bridge (it is a toll bridge on the way back) will take you to the community of Gulf Breeze. There is a large Publix grocery there to stock up on supplies, if you wish. The only minor issue was the shower temperature one morning. I'm not sure if everyone decided to shower at the same time, but I was letting it run for quite a while, and it was still freezing cold. I decided to just jump in and shower, and it definitely woke me up better than the coffee. Traveling companion cringed, but we ended up laughing about it and it was certainly nothing to make a big deal over. I will absolutely stay here again when I visit Pensacola Beach.

Room Tip: I chose a high floor simply for the beautiful Gulf view; families may appreciate a lower level room...
