Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Pensacola was truly exceptional. We were greeted warmly, our room was spacious, very clean, had a comfortable bed, and the delicious breakfast was a wonderful surprise. It's a full breakfast, not a packaged continental "muffin-in-a-bag" type of thing. Every person there was friendly and professional. And the location couldn't be better -- just a couple of blocks from restaurants, shopping and the Saenger Theater. Every time we come to Pensacola in the future, we will stay here without hesitation.

I was so excited about the location of this hotel as Downtown Pensacola is definitely lacking in Hilton and Marriott options. Very clean and staff very friendly and professional. . . The first few hours of stay were truly perfect. But Dear God, then the noise starts. I’ve been trying to tune out neighboring room’s TV blasting all afternoon . . . and then the relentless street racing of mufflerless cars started this evening . . . It’s after 9:00 and still going on . . . No sirens or law enforcement to be seen or heard. I called front desk and was told no other rooms off the main drag are available but usually stops by 10:00 or so. As I’m here for business and it’s a weeknight that’s just not going to work as I need sleep before the 7 hour drive tomorrow. I’m so bummed as this seemed like such a convenient location but not if I have to listen to obnoxious cars racing through downtown.

My team and I, four total stayed for 4 nights at holiday in. Downtown . I travel all over the country for work I seen every hotel possible from motel 6 to ritz Carlton. And you know what you get which each experience . Holiday inn was great clean as expected . But the service is second to none . I have rarely experience this level of care and kindness. Even from 5 star hotels. Leslie at front desk needs a promotion . We had all shorts problems from credit cards not working to swapping rooms . She did everything with a smile and was so nice and kinda to my team and me . She made it a breeze and with a great attitude . Leslie thank you ! If I’m every in town again I’ll stop by and say hi.
