“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

One may expect an average facility and stay at a Holiday Inn Express. It usually is, but not at this facility. It appears modern, clean, spacious, and the staff are helpful and friendly. The location is perfect for those on business at Eglin AFB. Although the breakfast was a standard to this hotel chain, the ice cream social in the evening was a surprise for the entire family.

THe staff of this Hotel was outstanding to name them: Lynette (office) , Kristen M. (front desk and lunch room) and Danielle (new, front desk). These three made this the most excellent stay and the quality of their work was outstanding. They cared, they were empowered, and they executed with perfection. My hope, they each get recognized for outstanding performance and excellent service to all, not just may family. Three days of absolutely wonderful service that made our stay incredible.

Room Tip: Get to know these wonderful people, they will make all the difference to your trip.

Spent a few days on business here and was very impressed. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the hotel is clean, quiet, and close to shopping and restaurants. The breakfast is very nice compared to many other hotels and includes a wide selection of cereals, yogurts, breads, eggs, and sausage/bacon. The dining room is actually big enough that breakfast never feels like a pig trough. This is a good place for business and pleasure. The pool area is nice and quiet and they even have BBQ facilities that guests can use. The rooms are clean and spacious. The cable TV selection exceeds 100 channels. I would stay here again without question or concern, Thanks for a great stay!!

You're welcome! I am glad to read you were impressed with our Holiday Inn Express. The entire staff works hard to give our guests the best experience possible. The BBQ grills are a big hit, it's nice to be outdoors enjoying this warm Florida weather. We look forward to your return.

This is an unusual reason to review a hotel. I had a room booked through Priceline and showed up to check in. The desk staff informed me that a computer problem caused them to overbook and they had no room available for me. BUT they immediately called another nearby hotel and arranged for a room there. That room was significantly costlier but they guaranteed they would work it out with Priceline and that they would pay whatever the difference on my behalf. They kept their promise and made sure there was no trouble for me. Our stay at the other hotel was outstanding, and I'm sure we would have enjoyed the same experience had we been able to stay at Holiday Inn Express.

I stayed there 3 weeks TDY in the kitchenette room. It was a nice place and the staff and employees go out of their way to make your stay excellent. The breakfasts were good. Loved the automatic pancake conveyor.
Clean & Fresh, well kept. Really good caring and respectful people.

Top rated in my book. I will send others there!

This was a one night stay for my husband and I both bound back to Canada. He had stayed at this HIE before and spoke well of it. Although there was a mix up with our booking i.e. the person who had booked this hotel for us got the dates wrong, they were very willing and helpful to accommodate us.
One other thing that impressed us was that we had mentioned we had a very early morning flight to catch at 6.15am and they gave us a room on the ground floor that made our departure so much easier. Also the night staff ensured that there was some of the breakfast stuff available that we could take before we left to catch our flight.
Overall a good experience and good service.

I am very impressed. We were welcomed with a beverage of our choice. Of course we chose wine. They have an "Ice Cream Social" in the evening for the children, free wifi and of course warm cookies. They have a great breakfast as well. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. They provide a mini fridge and microwave. The hotel is located across the street from the bay so you can view the water from some of the rooms. It is also located next to a Ruby Tuesday Restaurant. If you show your card you get 10% off. It's is about 10 minutes from Destin and it is a straight shot. Keep in mind you need to have $3.00 to acess the Toll if you plan to visit Destin. I am pleased to have all this for an affordable price!
