We had to go to Gulf Breeze for some training for work and decided to stay at Holiday Inn Pensacola Beach. We had been planning this trip for a month or so...looking at pictures and trying to find things to keep us busy when not in classes and were completely surprised that this motel was everything it was supposed to be...AND THEN SOME! The view from our room was phenomenal (we were on the 7th floor), we were able to sleep every night with the door open, listening to the waves crash and the breeze was wonderful!! We don't have much water where we live (New Mexico) so to wake up every day to the view was a treat. The employees were so extraordinarily NICE, always very helpful and knowledgeable and eager to make sure everything was alright. We were quite impressed by the breakfast bar every morning, it was a full breakfast and the breakfast employees were super nice as well!! This trip was mostly business, but we will definitely be going back again, hopefully MANY TIMES, and taking the families. Your motel was AWESOME and your employees were FABULOUS....I loved every minute of it!!!

Room Tip: All rooms have a gulf view, the further up you get, the more beautiful the view!!! And the front desk crew will accomodate your requests, if possible!!

What is there not to like? Every room has a Gulf view, breakfast in the morning and nice pool.
Away from the noisy bars and restaurants. Absolutely pleasant.

Our spring break stay at this hotel was great. Although the hotel was at capacity, the only time it ever felt crowded was at the breakfast buffet. Neither the beach nor the pool nor the lobby ever seemed over-full. It was a very quiet place, which was great for our family vacation.

In spite of all of the people tracking sand and water in and out of the hotel, the staff kept it spic and span. Like the other reviewers, we found this hotel to be exceptionally clean.

At breakfast we had a hard time finding a table a couple of mornings, but part of that was because it was raining and none of the outside tables and chairs could be used. Several of the food items, like the juices and the eggs, kept running out, but the staff was working hard to refill everything and soon refilled the items that ran out. There were just a lot of people during this time eating up everything. Breakfast had a nice variety, and there was always lots of fresh fruit, like apples, oranges, and bananas. We ate LOTS of oranges when we were there! They were so sweet--and seedless!

We liked the fact that in the afternoons we could microwave the complimentary popcorn. That was a nice touch.

The only thing we felt we needed that we did not have was an on-site restaurant for lunch and dinner. Sure, there are a few restaurants nearby, but a couple of evenings we would have preferred not to get out and drive. I would love for this hotel to have even a small deli with sandwiches and/or snacks.

We could not find a large grocery store nearby--just a couple of small convenience stores with very limited items. That blew our plan of purchasing some nice breads and cheeses and keeping them in the fridge to have for dinner. Do your grocery shopping before arrival if you want to keep things in the fridge. There is no microwave in the room, but there is one for guests to use in the breakfast room.

If you are looking for a big party, this is not the place to be. But if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing beach, a heated beach-side pool, clean, comfortable accommodations, and beautiful views where you can sit on your balcony and watch the dolphins play, then this is an excellent choice.

Room Tip: We liked our room on the 7th floor because we got to ride the glass elevator every day with gorgeous views of the bay (lower floors don't get to see that view).
