My wife had never seen the white sugar sand beaches on Pensacola beach and loves the ocean, so we got there early to give her time to spend on the beach. (My dermatologists have probably put kids through school with my visits over the years, so I try to stay out of the sun! For me, beach time is early in the morning and late in the evening.) So I got to do my beach walking later and took great pictures of the Emerald-colored water and the sugar-sand beaches. The Emerald Coast of Florida had ... Read more

We arrived early, and were immediately checked into our room by Nilla. She was very helpful and personable. The staff helped us fax some papers, and they were very pleasant about it. The elevator were very fast, and we seldom waited over a minute for a ride. The air conditioner was quiet, and the bathroom was immaculate. The lazy river pool was lovely, and beautiful to sit alongside in the evening. Water in the bath was always hot, and the tub was extra wide. The firm beds and pillows we... Read more

Have stayed here many times. Each time gets even better. The property is clean, modern and has all the amenities that you need. What sells this property is the customer service. Special shout out to Latoya who checked us in. She could tell that we had a long trip and within minutes the stresses of a long trip vanished. Every staff member that we encountered asked how our day was going and if they could do anything for us. This is the gold standard on how a hotel should be run. Great place, great... Read more

Although the hotel was sold out and full of people the staff were on top of everything. The pool area and beach were crowded but you still had plenty of room to play. We were surprised how good the food was and the prices were reasonable. Plenty of activities to walk to from the hotel.

PRO TIPS: Ride the free trolley as soon as you get there to learn the lay of the land. There is a trolley stop directly in front of the hotel. Visit the Pensacola Beach Visitors Center for brochures and advice on things to do and places to eat, and a map of the island. They sometimes have coupons and specials to offer you. AND they know about special events going on while your there. The hotel assigns rooms in the morning, so call and check in over the phone in the AM no matter what time you... Read more

Clean, very friendly staff, convenient location with a lot of activities. The free trolley picks up right outside the hotel - however, most places are close enough to walk. This hotel is in a great location with a great beach and a fun pool for the kids....pool tip: get your pool chairs early! The pool doesn't open until 9 but everyone rushes down to save chairs before it's even open. We arrived at the pool at 10am and there was one (broken) chair left.

This is such a fun hotel for kids. The lazy river is great and this particular section of the beach seems so be calmer than other areas - which makes it a little more fun for the little ones. Mermaids and Pirates come out at different times to play with the kids and there is even an outdoor movie on certain evenings. Lots of different areas to sit from swings to lounge chairs to a huge chair the kids have to climb into. Pool lighting makes it beautiful at night. The hotel is so kid-friendly -... Read more

The first time we stayed here was last year. I chose it because of a good rate, great reviews, and repeated disappointments with other supposedly "higher end" hotel chains along the coast. I thought that maybe I loved it because I had low expectations of a Holiday Inn. The second time we stayed, I realized that its just a really great place to stay and there is a reason its rates can be as high or higher than the competition.

Stayed 2 nights with 2 kids ages 11 & 8. Hotel was packed, making pool & lazy river access difficult to enjoy. Some kid friendly activities held during the evening. Rooms/ bathrooms/ restaurant mediocre. Great beach access which I guess is the reason the rates are crazy for just an ok stay. Staff was friendly though, just seemed to have their hands full with the mob of people. It wasn't a holiday weekend either!

This was a great place to enjoy Pensacola Beach at. Rooms are typical Holiday Inn fashion but the lazy river and beach access was perfect. How much are you in your room anyways. There was the added bonus of room service and daily maid service that upped the anty. Why rent a condo and have to clean when someone else will do it for you ;) The pool had daily pool activities for the kids and then nightly movies with popcorn. Kids Eat Free at the restaurant which was a great bonus since and the ... Read more

We took 3 grandchildren on vacation here in July 2016. They loved it. Beach is right in front of hotel. Lazy river pool was a big hit and the youngest boy loved the Pirates playing games by the pool. Going directly from the beach or pool to the restaurants outside tables was perfect for our kids. The breakfast was great. The bar is situated where you can keep an eye on the kids. The Blue Angels also flew over right in front of the hotel during one of their shows.

We have stayed at this hotel/resort for the past 3 years when we are in town. Our girls go to college here so we are here 4-5 times each year! The rooms are so clean, nice, bright, breakfast is great! Love the poolside restaurant/bar. Burgers are great! The hotel staff is always fun and friendly! Very helpful and willing to make sure we have a great time. Nilla is my favorite. She goes out of her way to know our names because we are there so much. Always smiling and kind!

Nice hotel on the beach. We only stay here when in Pensacola. Our kids love the lazy river, even in the winter. Kids eat free in the restaurant, which has some great food. Very friendly staff and great kid activities during the summer.

Just loved it!!! Was on a roadtrip and stayed here one night. This hotel is absolutey fantastic. Had the greatest room with view to the ocean. The poolarea is amazing and you can use it until 10 pm. In the evening they have fireplace bye the pools and it's just soo cozy. The beach and the sunset is stunning. Great drinks at the bar and order a starter and that looks more like an main course than a starter;-) Great breakfast. Great employees. Ah.. just love the place. The only bad thing was that ...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Pens Beach for a much needed get away. I had to travel to Pensacola for work that Friday, so we came a bit early to enjoy the beach. On night two, we came in before dinner to find my iPad had been stolen of the dresser. I went to the lobby to report it and there were already 2 police officers talking to another guest. Apparently, his car was broken into the night before in the parking lot. The front desk seemed like they didn't care and told me all th... Read more

This hotel is great. It is clean and convenient. It is right on the beach but it has a pool that will make you want to go to the pool not the beach! It has a LAZY RIVER AND TIKI TORCHES. Come on. That is perfect. There are several bars and a restaurant. And a fitness center. And best of all there are amazing people. The woman at the desk, Kizzy, made us feel so welcome. She was friendly and helpful and she gave us drink coupons because we had a long day. It was so nice. We are already planning o... Read more

My girlfriend and I stayed at the this establishment for a weekend getaway. The lobby and room was pristine. The balcony was small, but still we were enable to enjoy amazing views of the pool and the beach. Breathtaking sunrise and sunset, but not the kind of hotel you can sleep with the beach front door open :( We ate at the restaurant which was a little overpriced, and the food was just mediocre. No free breakfast at this establishment which is a bummer, but overall the amenities make it to wh... Read more

The front desk staff was very pleasant. The room could not have been better. Ocean view! Right off the elevator, I thought we would hear other guests, but no! Loved the huge shower! There was some mold on the handheld shower, but clean otherwise. The music and water fountains by the pool were turned off at a reasonable hour so we cracked the balcony door to hear the waves breaking. Very restful visit.

Celebrated my best fiends 62 birthday in Feb. of 2016. Beautiful hotel. Loved the atmosphere and the service was great. Would recommend to anyone. Had room with a refrigerator and microwave, so it was convenient for snacks. Great restaurants in the area. The best thing was it was just a short walk to the beach.

I stayed here for 3 nights recently after attending a conference in New Orleans. I was pleased I did. The hotel has a super location right on the beach with rooms looking directly out onto the majestic Gulf of Mexico. My room was clean, spacious and most importantly smelt fresh, always a good sign. Although the furnishings were ever so slightly tired this kind of added to the washed out beach feel. There was a sizeable fridge and microwave too. In general the hotel grounds were well kept and a... Read more

I was there on a quick stop over from some other travel, but even though I was only there for 1 night the hotel was amazing. Jazzy needs a massive raise. Hotel was clean and had all the amenities you could ask for. Very nice to have the hot tub and lazy river area at the hotel, but still right on the beach for Gulf access. I will stay there any time i come down to Pensecola.

Let me say we throughly enjoyed our stay. Our check in was quick and the desk staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The lobby is bright and beautiful, the pool area is wonderful, can't wait to bring our kids and grandkids back to play in the pool and lazy river. Fire pits in the evening was a nice perk. Our room was very comfortable and clean, we had plenty of space. It was nice to have a safe, a microwave and refrigerator. After being on vacation for awhile we needed to do laundr... Read more

We really enjoyed this hotel. It was clean, modern, comfortable, and setup correctly. We stayed in a 2 queen bed room overlooking the gulf. We loved the balcony and the view. The pool are was fantastic- 2 hot tubs, lazy river, nice pool, and 2 firepit areas. There are gates to secure the pool area and a quick walk to the beach. This was one of the nicest beaches we have stayed at. We also had breakfast buffet every morning. The kids eat free and don't forget to ask for pancakes or waffle... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! We were greeted by Summer at the front desk, who totally rocked and set us up with great recommendations on local places to eat and things to do! The room was very clean, which is a big deal to us! The entire hotel was phenomenal. I'll definitely bring my family here again!

We were upgraded to a beach view. Very nice hotel. We would stay here again. Beach access is very good. Pool was really nice. The off season price is very good. We stayed in November and walked the beach and the temperature was still comfortable. Free coffee in the morning and lemon water all day, awesome perk!

Because of the cooler weather while we were there, we did not use the pool area or the beach. We loved the location of the hotel as we were close to some terrific restaurants. Would definitely stay there again.

Love love love this hotel. The pool area is great, 2 hot tubs, game room, bar with food, and access to the beach. The only negative review I have is the breakfast at Riptides, it is god awful. The room is a nice size for a king bed, the bathroom has a shower, not tub but I like that. Shampoo and Conditioner are from bath and bodyworks which was a pleasant surprise. The hot water went out for a bit, not sure why. Will recommend this hotel to everyone when I get back home.

My family and I really enjoyed visiting the Holiday Inn! We're already planning another stay. ?The hotel is nice and clean. ?The staff are very friendly and helpful. ?The beach is beautiful, clean, and private. ?The hotel's restaurant, Riptide (I believe), is excellent. The burger I ordered to my room was my favorite meal of my trip! (I recommend ordering the bacon cheeseburger and the strawberry cheesecake.) ?The arcade is very small, but it thoroughly entertained my children. ... Read more

We have stayed at this resort on 4 different occasions. Lazy just river & hot tubs are nice. Riptide a restaurant is Adaquate. Biggest complaint is housekeeping. Several mornings they have taken our dirty towels and done nothing else- no trash, making beds, replenishing coffee supplies or even clean towels. Even called front desk in the evening to have towels brought up. Still nothing. Ended up going down to front desk for towels. Also during slow season they allow others to come in to use ... Read more

When I checked in, I was met by a very pleasant front desk staff, Jazzy. The room was very clean and is up to this Holiday Inn's standard which is very high. We had room service from Riptides one night and food was very good and arrived very quickly. I can't say anything bad about our experience and will continue to stay here when in the area.

Our family had a wonderful stay! We had an amazing view from our room! It most definitely enhanced the "AWE" factor of our kids first trip to the ocean! Our room was good sized and clean. The staff was more then helpful, accommodating and pleasant to chat with! They were very willing to offer suggestions on things in the area to do and places to eat. Their recommendations were great too! The pool was amazing! Even though the weather was cool....end of November...it was heated well enough that we... Read more
