“Group trip to Pensacola Beach”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

We recently traveled as a group of 30 to Pensacola Beach and selected the Holiday Inn Resort for our stay. I would like to say that the hotel itself was lovely and the amenities were great! We enjoyed the pools, beach and the on site restaurant. We were all in agreement that their restaurant had some of the best hot wings we had ever tasted. The breakfast buffet was hot, plentiful and delicious as well. Our rooms were spacious, decorated beautifully, comfortable and spic & span. Everyone we came in contact with at the hotel were helpful and courteous, especially Marie at the front desk.

This hotel is just splendid. The staff is great, the room was clean and had a great view, the pools were terrific. The beach is beautiful and the hotel restaurant had a wonderful breakfast buffett. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The seventh floor view was great of pool and beach.

Really enjoyed our first stay at this hotel this weekend. Requested high floor on check in, only 4th available - but once we checked in realised there are no dud rooms on the Ocean side - all have nice views of pools / sea. Staff freindly and low key. Rooms very clean. Ours was also disabled access which I think made it a bit wider - it certainly felt very spacious. Also requested late check out - but none available - Sunday morning so I think the trick is to ask early. Did not detract from the stay, we spend the whole day at the beach and left around 6pm. Room rate felt a little steep, but the comfort for me of having a confirmed room with balcony / sea view made it worth it.

Room Tip: Get ocean view and high floor. Lower floors get noise from fountains etc from the pool. Higher floor...

Good evening "James B",

I do apologize for not being able to accommodate your higher floor request. I do hope, as you mentioned, your view was most definitely not a "dud" even at only the 4th floor. I agree, "there are no dud rooms". Late check-outs, we do try to honor as many as possible. This just depends on our expected arrivals, on that day and how many have already been requested. We are more than happy to hold your luggage for you and let you enjoy the beach or our amenities as long as you'd like. We are glad you enjoyed your visit with us and are looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Sincerely,
James Crowder

Stayed here as part of a business trip. The hotel is very nicely located on via de Luna right on the beach. Rooms are spacious, clean and offer great views of the bay or gulf. my only complaint is that the in room amenities (towels, toiletries etc.) seemed to be straight from a low cost motel. Internet and parking are free, breakfast is not included in room rate.

Went with a friend for one much needed night of rest and relaxation. Service at the front desk was friendly, curtious, and expedient. The hotel common areas, rooms and pool were pristine. We really enjoyed the lazy river - what a great feature! With all this and the ocean just steps away we couldn't have asked for anything more but the time to stay longer. I will definitely be back!

We were upgraded as we have a Platinum Priority Card but there were no King rooms available. We do appreciate the upgrade. I thought the advance purchase price was reasonable. Pool area is nice with plenty of lounge chairs. My only complaint is the tall building to the west of this hotel blocks the beautiful sunset. However, sunrise was awesome.
Only chairs in the room were two straight back at the desk.
Would definitely go again.
