This was a very nice resort. Very clean and stunning grounds. Our room was nice enough (as well as you can see from my pics.) it was roomy and had a nice sofa. I didn't give it 5 stars for the following reasons: the bathroom door was glass and it opened like a regular door. We ended up having to...

We stayed here one night on a road trip and were very happy with nearly every aspect of our stay. We'd booked the cheapest room, but, it being a mid-week off season stay and thanks to being a reward member, we were comped to a gulf-side corner balcony room with a spectacular view. A great way to start our visit!...

When I checked in, I was met by a very pleasant front desk staff, Jazzy. The room was very clean and is up to this Holiday Inn's standard which is very high.

The Holiday Inn Resort on Pensacola Beach, Florida, will make you feel happy from the moment you set your flip-flopped foot inside our door. We’re here for you, offering the amenities you need to plan the perfect vacation – or host the best business meeting. From your private balcony or the terrace of our ample 10,000 square foot event space, take in dazzling views of the sparkling waters and shimmering sands of Pensacola Beach – recently named No. 5 of all U.S. beaches by TripAdvisor. Its natural beauty is offset by our bright, modern lobby and stylish, comfortable guest rooms – including colorful Kids’ Suites designed with your family in mind. We’re all about fun here at the Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach hotel, and you’ll feel it from the front desk to the pool deck. Our pool is the best on the beach, with cascading waterfalls and a 250-foot seasonally heated Lazy River. There’s no reason to leave the resort, with Riptides Sports Grill and Beachfront Tiki Bar serving up delicious dining and crafty cocktails seven days a week. If you do decide to get out, we’re within walking distance of the beach’s best restaurants, nightlife and activities including charter fishing, paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking and biking. We’re also a quick drive to regional attractions such as the National Naval Aviation Museum, Fort Pickens, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Historic Downtown Pensacola, Pensacola Lighthouse, Blue Wahoos Baseball Stadium, Veterans Memorial Park and the Saenger Theatre. No matter what you like to do, we can point you in the right direction. When you start your day with a smile on your face, there’s no telling where it might take you. ... more   less
