“The Best!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

A few kids, but mainly couples. Great place for relaxation. We arrived early, and Tyler was so accommodating and welcoming we couldn't have started our weekend any better. Hearing the waves from our room was intoxicating.

The hotel was clean and the people where very nice. It didn't have a hot tub. We were looking for a beach with turquoise water. Not here. So we ventured down to Destin. OMG Beautiful Turquoise water. Much more to do!. So we packed up our bags and move to Destin for our vacation. Only 40 mins away.
But the hotel was very clean and like I said, the staff was excellent!.

I can't think of one negative thing to say about this hotel. The staff was the best and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable! The room was very clean, and had an amazing view! They served the best breakfast a hotel has to offer, one thing I loved was how it was away from all the tourist traps and nestled in right on the beach. It's safe, and the staff was the friendliest and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to my family and friends, and anytime we're there that's where we will stay! Thanks for the great memories!!!

As a platinum member of the Holiday Inn Express I can attest that the HIE in Pensacola is the absolute best hotel not only in the US but around the world as well. I can not say enough good things about this hotel. From the front desk staff to the morning breakfast staff these friendly professionals will do everything possible to make you feel welcome. This is a family friendly place where memories are made. My deepest appreciation to Manager Beverly and her staff for making our several stays so special and memorable. Look forward with anticipation to our next visit. Bill and Sallie Indianapolis, Indiana

Stayed there while hosting a wedding in a rental house. It was so nice to get away from the commotion of the wedding to the serene hotel. We had a suite on top with a huge patio, beautiful sites all the way around. The front desk was happy and always there for questions.....Tyler stood out, although everyone was gracious, he was the only male I saw at the desk. Breakfast was always hot, replenished and delicious, the gals always had a smile and cheery good morning. This hotel feels like a boutique hotel. Our rooms were clean and comfortable and of course all have an ocean view. I like that it is just a couple of minutes from the strip but in its own quiet area. Will visit again.

We went down for spring break and this place is very family oriented. Breakfast was a great value. Rooms were clean and quiet. The staff was excellent. Be sure to ask for the shark stress toy for the kids. Lot's to do close by. Fort Pickens is neat and if the blue angels are doing training flights you can watch from the park. Lot's of food choices although some are pricey but what the heck it's a vacation. Had a blast would return. All the rooms have a gulf facing view. Ask for the upper floors.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views. Watch for the dolphins around 11:00 to 12:30 and in the late aftern...
