5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Hotel looks great on the outside, lobby is beautiful, room was spacious w/a sofa, color scheme was relaxing. There were two pools, one indoor and one on the beach. I was given a free drink coupon for the restaurant. Staff was friendly. Great location for taking pics. King bed room was large, but the bathroom was small if two people needed to be in it at the same time.

Dear Literstreeter,

Thanks for sharing your comments about our hotel!

The bathrooms are standard, if you need a little extra room, perhaps inquire about a handicap accessible room...however, they are roll-in showers, no tubs.

It's great to hear people respond to the decor...sort of contemporary South Beach "ish". When you are walking into the lobby and looking straight across at the Lazy River Pool is our "gotcha" moment.

Glad you got to experience that!

Been to PB many times over the years. Have to say the Holiday Inn Beach Resort is the nicest stay we've had there. Staff was very friendly, the place was clean as a whistle and the price was great. Overall was a first-rate experience.

Dear hellwiththis,

We're glad you had a "first-rate experience"...that was our intention. We know you have choices of other hotels on Pensacola Beach and sometimes its just a matter of time until we get our turn for repeat visitors to the island to try us out.

Please come back to us...or at least stop in and say "Hey!"

This was our second year in a row to stay at this resort. Everything was great again, clean rooms, beautiful view, attentive staff! Could not ask for more. Price very reasonable. Did like having a restaurant on the property also.

Room Tip: King room on gulf side worth the money

Came back to see if the service I would receive as a single room rented verses the 15 rooms rented for my daughters wedding would be any different. I am happy to say that I received exactly the same great services once again. The people who work here are extremely friendly and very helpful. The place is very clean and welcoming. The pool and area surrounding it is absolutely wonderful for families. The restaurant food is very good. You can also go on line for coupons to their restaurant Riptides. (Go to restaurant.com) you can find cheaper rooms in Pensacola but as the saying goes- You get what you pay for!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room on the gulf side beautiful views

It is important to know that we are consistent and uniform in our service and hospitality. We encourage our staff to be themselves and let there great personalities shine.

Good for you and us that you were able to return and enjoy a relaxing stay without the commotion of a wedding.

Our last port of call before driving back to Atlanta to fly home. Having been to Nashville, Memphis, Natchez, and New Orleans I thought we could do with a couple of days rest on the beach and I struck it right with this modern hotel. Right in the middle of Pensacola Beach we had views over the sea to the north of the strip in a lovely spacious room with comfortable beds. (English hotels please note) The staff were very friendly and helpful and pointed us in the direction of the best eating houses. The pool was inviting with the lazy river running round it with ample amount of beds to lie on. The beach is directly behind the pool with lovely white sand and clear blue sea. Later in the day you can stroll up to the beach bar for a drink and watch the sun set. Beautiful.

Dear John W,

I'm glad we were a part of your long scenic drive back to Atlanta...in good company with some great cities.

You are right, great views on either side of the building. It is a beautiful time of year, warm skies with a cool breeze...great strolling weather.

May your future travels be as sweet!

Super clean, super friendly, modern decor, has restaurant and small lounge. Awesome pool for kids, right on beach, very well kept. Rooms are clean and comfortable well worth the cost. Beds are nice and the view is extraordinary.
