So the breakfast was bleh but plentiful - the same as all the chain hotels. The refrigerator and airconditioning were taking turns switching on and off all night - unplugged the fridge, but AC was a little more problematic. Comfy bed and best water pressure in a chain hotel shower were pluses, and great spot on the beach set this... More

And the location is fantastic. Right on the beach and no neighbors to speak of. Off course, the beach is BEAUTIFUL. But that is about it. The hotel is quite basic. The complimentary breakfast is quite basic as well, and is self served on paper plates. All in all we had a fine stay, we were just expecting something more.... More

Some of my husband's Navy buddies decided to get together for the Air Show. We got an excellent group rate and the hotel was beautiful. Spacious, quiet rooms, all with a balcony facing the beach. I have no idea why another reviewer thought this hotel was "redneck." Maybe there was a different crowd here during his stay, but we definitely... More

Dear Trudy P, We really enjoyed hosting the reunion! I am sorry you did not know but there IS a refrigerator in EVERY room. We wanted to give the rooms a more residential feel so we tucked the refrigerator out of sight. On one side of the dresser what appears to be drawers is a door covering the refrigerator. We... More

every room in his hotel is a room against the ocean, and the view is great towards the gulf, and just at the beachfront, the staff is really friendly and helpful as well, the breakfast was however the typical hotel breakfast you get most places, nothing out of the extra-ordinary, simple and typical american hotel breakfast.

We made reservations to stay at this hotel only because of all the great reviews posted here about this hotel. We arrived during our vacation and were very disappointed. It seems to be more of a "redneck" hotel. I read in one review a while back this is not the typical Holiday Inn because it is so good. That is... More

Dear MattB, At the Holiday Inn Express Pensacola Beach we work so hard to see that each guest leaves with pleasant memories, not only of us and our hotel but of Pensacola Beach and Pensacola. Memories so fond that they want to return again and again. It was so disheartening to read the title of your review. What a devastating... More

We wanted to stay in a hotel that was directly on the beach and had a fabulous view of the Gulf of Mexico and that is exactly what we got! Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly young man on the reception desk who seemed very impressed that we’d booked over 6 months ago, that said we were... More

This is the best hotel that we have found on the gulf coast. The location is great - very quiet yet near enough to restaurants and shopping. The hotel grounds are well maintained - large heated clean pool. Staff were all friendly and accommodating. The beach is so close although it slopes quite a bit but the sand is nice... More

We LOVE hearing that you think of us as "the best hotel you have found on the Gulf Coast"! We also want to you know a "Traveler's Tip". Most hotels with PTAC systems set them on the fan on/off mode but can ALWAYS change the settings for our guests' preference. When you stay with us again simply tell the front... More

We have mixed feelings about this resort after staying here (location only). Stayed in Oct 2014 for 1 night in room 601 or 602. It was the far north room, and it was great. It was a hallway end room and we thought we got something special, but it seemed to be just the norm. Only about 1/2 mile from... More

Spent a night at this hotel and found to be excellent. On our arrival at the hotel, the desk clerk was very courteous and greeted us warmly. Our room was great and the view was wonderful.
