“a little getaway”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Stayed two weeks ago and our family time there was great. I took my grandchildren for the weekend and they had a blast. This is very family orientated hotel, but adults still can find something to enjoy.
I would change one thing.... I am an early riser no coffee in the lobby (the coffee maker in the rooms really aren't great no matter where you are) . I would love to see coffee for early people next time I go.

Thank you for writing a review for the Holiday Inn Resort on beautiful Pensacola Beach. We appreciate you choosing us for your resort stay and are asking that you return in the very near future. I’m going to adjust the hours we start coffee service in the morning at our coffee service area called Butler’s Pantry. Thank you for pointing that out. We can always improve our service.

Warm regards,

This is the best hotel in Pensacola Beach in my opinion. I think overall it is a better hotel than the Hilton which is right next door and it is cheaper! Great pool, comfortable rooms, very friendly staff, great activitites for the kids, right on the beach, and the hotel resturant and outside bar have excellent food! Will definitely stay here the next time we are in Pensacola!

An amazing hotel. I stay in Holiday Inns 100+ nights a year and this ranks at the top. Clean and comfortable and the customer service is incredible. From Michelle at the check in desk to Meagan at Riptides. Top notch all the way. We had a great time from start to finish. All hotels should operate this way. We have now been spoiled. You have set the bar to high.

Stayed here for one night during our recent road trip. Arrived too early to check in but ,made use of the bar/pool areas. Situated right on the beach with numerous bars, shops and eateries in the immediate vicinity all within walking distance
When we did get our room it was perfect . Not a Gulf view but still a pretty amazing one!
Spotlessly clean room and although it didn't have coffee making facilities the hotel gave you a voucher for coffee in the morning.
Attentive staff with an inviting reception area
Really enjoyed our short stay here and would recommend to others

Room Tip: High floor anywhere in hotel

My wife & I just enjoyed the most relaxing vacation in this beautiful beach front hotel. The staff were very friendly and you could tell they enjoy working there. Great hotel for kids too as they have many activities geared for kids. We'll be back soon!

This resort is walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants. The pool and lazy river are so wonderfully refreshing! The resort has pirate shows and mermaids with crafts for children. The view is wonderful from the balconies! The restaurant on site is a little pricey but the hotel has coupons and it is very convenient! The staff are friendly and helpful. Love this resort - value for the price you pay for beachfront hotel!

Room Tip: Splurge for the balcony view of the gulf!

The staff was super friendly and the resort is just amazing! We had dinner at Riptide outside, and the burgers were awesome. The breakfast buffet had all my breakfast favs! I will definitely be returning this summer, with my kids this time! They have so many kid friendly activities.
