Holiday Inn Express Niceville - Eglin AFB
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Niceville
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2014

The hotel has not changed much since my last visit. The facility was clean, the staff friendly, and the service/amenities were pretty much the same. It is worth probably a 3.5 star rating. The bed was not as comfortable, as I experienced previously.

Great Holiday Inn Express. Bedrooms large with huge beds, large TV microwave and coffee maker. Free wifi is a bonus and good reliable connection. Location is good and the Big Fish Grill is 500 yards away which is superb. Highly recommended.

We stayed for four nights, and everything was great! The staff is fantastic, so helpful and probably the friendliest and most accommodating that we've experienced in our many years of traveling. I would absolutely reccomend staying here, it's a great calm location but so close to Destin beach, Ft. Walton and Others. WONDERFUL!

I stayed at the Holiday Inn-Express Niceville for about a week in the beginning of May, I was doing work up in Crestview so I tried to book a hotel relatively close to the airport and where I was working. The hotel is literally only a few miles from the airport but it was still a drive to Crestview. Anyway, the hotel is located on a Bayou and upon arrival, it had the standard Holiday Inn Express features. The room was clean, the bathroom was stocked and the water was hot in the shower. As a runner, there are a lot of place to run around the bayou. The fitness center was also very clean and had more than the normal Holiday Inn Express fitness centers. Normally, I would try to stay on the beach when doing work in the Fort Walton Beach area. However, while staying here, I didnt think twice about switching.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Niceville, FL and it just keeps getting better. Upon check-in, I was offered a choice of water, soda, or a cold beer. Very nice touch indeed. The service staff is excellent and I want to especially commend Dwight for helping me with some field equipment problems. The breakfast is top notch; the dining room is very clean and the hostess is really a joy. One evening, the hotel sponsored a manager's reception which included a nice variety of cold beers, wines, cheeses, vegetables, and meats. Paul, the general manager, was really a nice guy and very engaging. What a great treat this was and everyone seemed to really enjoy this function. I stay at a lot of Holiday Inn properties for business and this one is indeed among the cream of the crop. I am anxiously awaiting a return visit. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!

Stayed here on way back from a Florida trip. Comfortable room and bed. All the staff we met were really pleasant. Breakfast fine. Nice location. Could walk to several restaurants. Nice spot off parking lot with tables, chairs and grills (grill supplies available from the desk) that would be great if we had been there longer. Would stay again

I have stayed in a lot of Holiday Inn properties over the last few years racking up a lot of points and becoming a Platinum member along the way. But this hotel will not be in my rotation to stay at again.

I did not book this hotel my cousin did for a Funeral and I checked in with my uncle who is 82 and the reservations were in his name.

The hotel is clean but oddly laid out in the rooms. The desk in our two bed room was right up against the air conditioner unit and I was constantly cold and the fan was blowing right in my ear quite uncomfortably. This room could have been laid out comfortably as a King room with the desk away from the AC unit but they stuck two beds in here anyway.

Also the walls are very thin and my uncle who often asked me to repeat myself because he could not hear me say something stated quite obvious wow those people in the hall sure are loud. I am not sure what rooms the guests who stayed in quiet rooms were at but they were not staying in my room.

The room prices were very expensive and if I was not staying there for my uncle I would have moved to the Quality Suits as some of the other family members were staying there and their rooms were almost half as much per night. It’s not like this hotel is near the beach or anything so I don’t understand the price.

The property has two buildings as well so be aware you may not be located in the main building where they serve breakfast and have the coffee pots, if this matters to you.

The breakfast is standard HI food. Same here in Niceville as it was in Olive Branch, MS and in Jacksonville, FL, and in Grenville, SC and Charlotte, NC. You get warm tasty food that is a good start to the day. Same complaint here, that I have about all HI everywhere, their coffee stinks. It is only colored hot water with very little coffee flavor.

So to sum up, expensive, noisy, strange room lay outs that are uncomfortable to use the desk from and nice staff, Similar options for less in town.
