“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

My granddaughter was admitted to WFS which is minutes away from the hotel. We were able to get a discount ahead of time for parents of students. Just note the hotel only blocks a certain amount of rooms at the discount price. The hotel is clean, well run and very welcoming. Our room was great, comfortable with a mini fridge, just a great place to stay. Donald, one of the hotel personnel was outstanding with his warm sense of humor and help! Its location is the greatest convenience, right off the freeway, near Target and other stores and restaurants. The airport is literally 15 minutes away. Pensacola freeway system is top of the line, convenient so getting from one end of town to the other was very easy. If you've never been, the drive to Pensacola Beach across the bridge is spectacular as well as the white sand beaches.

Room Tip: Beautiful, clean, makes you smile having a great place to stay!

Great front desk staff!! Love Donald!! He was truly such a great welcome to us each day!! Hotel was so convenient to UWF, very accessible to the college, stores, beaches! The lobby is pristine! Rooms are very clean, great beds, such comfy pillows!! Will def stay again!! Nice touches with fresh cookies and USA today papers on each floor. Was too busy to use the pool, so can't comment on that, but would rather head to beach! It's only about 20 min away! See everyone in Pensacola soon! Best!

We were in town to attend activities related to UWF. This is a really good hotel, especially convenient to UWF. The staff provides excellent customer service, especially David at the front desk. The room was decent sized, clean, bed comfortable. Only negative was the breakfast. It was not good, pancakes were half done, coffee luke warm, a waste of money. There are other restaurants and shopping nearby. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Paid $170 for a suite that was worth $100. The heated pool wasn't heated. The eggs were rubbery. The sofabed mattress was so thin that my son actually used the couch cushions to sleep on. Not worth the money. The only nice part thing about the hotel was the staff was friendly and polite.

Currently enjoying a stay in Pensacola. Hotel is one of the nicer Holiday Inns I've stayed in. Relatively new, convenient location (although very busy roads surround hotel), very clean, incredibly nice staff. Room is a little cramped, but very acceptable. Comfortable beds. Fridge in room is nice. Soap and shampoo are not a selling point, but functional. Nice restaurant, Good bar. One note - breakfast is not part of package. I guess I didn't pay attention when making the reservation. Breakfast is available, just not part of your rate.

We found this hotel with a trip advisor search while we were driving. The hotel we booked and paid for in Panama CIty Beach was pretty scary so we decided to forfeit our money and keep moving down the road. I called here and was given directions from desk clerk and I am so sorry I do not remember his name. He was expecting us and greeted us when we wlked in the door. The hotel room was very roomy and clean. Very confortable bed with lots of pillows.We were given the WIFI password at checkin without having to ask. We selected this hotel because it had an inhouse restaurant and bar. The bartender was very nice, gave excellent service. My husband had a special request for something not on the menu. The bartender spoke with the chef and he was happy to make his special order. Food was excellent. Would definately recommend to travelers.
