“Beautiful Hotel!”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

We stayed here in November of 2011. Sorry the review is a little late...
This hotel is right on the beach. It is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are clean, clean, clean...which we love. The hotel staff was very helpful. They recommended some places to eat and we chose a local sports bar which was very good. We only spent one night and it was a cold one so we did not do much beach time. I did walk out on it before we left the next morning and it looked very well kept and inviting. I would have loved to spend more time here and maybe when the weather is a little warmer. The hotel is in a quiet area, this is a plus in my book. We loved it here and would definitely stay here again...

We booked this hotel because the Holiday Inn on Via de luna was full. This hotel was just as nice, the only difference was the lack of the lazy river and huge pool and proximity to the restaurants. But, if you're looking for a more quiet stay while at the beach, with maybe a few hundred less people on your section of the beach - stay here. The rooms were nice and EVERY room faces the Gulf with a balcony, which we LOVED. Slept with our door open to hear the ocean every night. Hot breakfast was your typical Holiday Inn express breakfast. The staff was friendly and accomodating and the facilities were clean. It's more of a walk to the main drag with all the restaurants and touristy shops, but my 3 yo and I walked it with only minor complaints from the little one. Overall, great hotel. Would definitely stay here, though if you have little kids who LOVE pools with lots going on in them (water spouts, lazy river, etc) the the other Holiday Inn might be more for you.

We stopped here on our way to New Orleans. Stayed over one night. Got a walk-in AAA rate which was very reasonable. We came here because of the excellent tripadvisor reviews about this place. It lived up to it's reputation! It is a very well-maintained property. The staff speak to you and act interested in helping you open doors, give directions, always smiling, etc. The room and the view should be very spectacular. I say "should be" as the night we stayed over the entire area was blanketed by a thick fog so the view was obscured. And the next morning, the fog had not lifted. We did go out and walk on the white sandy beach. Access to the beach involves just going out a side-door and across a wooden walkway. Our room was sparkling clean and I do mean sparkling. I am a clean freak when away from home and our room gets an A+. Hot breakfast was very tasty. I noticed that the attendant replenished items promptly, so everyone got what they wanted. If I ever make it back this way, this is the only place I would consider staying. It is wonderful.

Room Tip: Heavy fog in the area the night we stayed; sorry I can't give any helpful tips.

A wonderful hotel that faces the ocean. The beach is spectacular as well as the staff. We had everything we needed at this HIE and its location is ideal. Very reasonable rates and you just have to step out the door to the beach. Will definitely return someday.

My husband and I took a little after holiday escape to Pensacola the end of December until January 1st. I cannot express how impressed we were with this hotel, its' amenities, and the wonderful staff.
Amenities: Great location! Excellent breakfast choices (constantlu reprlenished before anything was depleted), even got a little sand bucket and shovel to help with gathering shells or playing on the beach
Staff: Outstanding! Professional! Friendly! Well-oiled team environment! The staff anticipated our needs with a friendly suggetion for eating or activities. This compliment extends to the front desk,house staff, security, and the breakfast ladies. I don't think we have ever experienced such a positive, helpful group.
It's obvious everyone on the team at Holiday Inn Express, Pensacola Beach, takes great pride in their work and yes, even seem to enjoy it!
Stay here, stay here, stay here! (unless of course you really don't want to be surround by positive, helpful people in beautiful surroundings)

Room Tip: All the rooms are great as they all face the Gulf of Mexico, not just a corner view if you really st...

First I would like to thank Sheri at the front desk for taking care of us from the time we arrived. My wife and I arrived early, which was not a problem, Sheri let us check in without a problem. The room was spacious with a view of the gulf/beach. All rooms at this property have a gulf/beach view. The breakfast is typical of HIE properties. The views from the breakfast area is wonderful as well. The staff is one of the best we have ever witnessed and very friendly. This is a no smoking facility, which we had a person not too far from us on the balcony smoking, the staff took care of this right away. The location is waking distance to the center of shopping and dinning. Not far away is Fort Pickins National Seashore as well as the Naval Air Museum. My wife and I wanted to get away for some peace and quiet and the staff at the Holiday Inn Express provided what we were looking for. We highly recommend this property and will be back. Thanks again to the staff you guys are the best.
