The entire stay, although short, was excellent. The staff were extremely cordial, very personable. The hotel was immaculate and comfortable. Breakfast great and beach and pool areas awesome.

Secluded getaway on Florida Gulf Coast

Impeccable and friendly service that went the extra mile, e.g. a call to my airline to ensure that they wouldn't "forget" to deliver my delayed luggage. Facilities very clean and comfortable, location is perfect for those wanting a quieter get-away.

Terrific Experience

From the very start our experience was so far above average. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and informative. Upon learning that I was a previous resident of Pensacola, she gave me a very cheerful and sincere "Welcome Home", and then quickly got us settled into our rooms. She also set about helping us to register for additional savings and offers from Holiday Inn,... even going so far as to fill out most of the paper-work herself while we got some much needed sleep. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable. All of the hotel staff were very friendly and seemed to really want to go that "extra mile" to make sure our stay was as relaxed and carefree as possible. (it was) I appreciate so much the effort that the staff put forth, and I know now that from this point forward,... I will no longer feel the need to shop around for a place to stay the next time I'm in Pensacola. Thanks very much for such a great experience, and for the great memory.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Be sure to stop by Peg Leg Pete's oyster bar. Just turn left out of the parking lot and drive a short distance from the hotel,... or if you're looking for a really neat place with a great selection of some of Pensacola's favorite dishes, make a right hand turn out of the parking lot, and drive the short distance to Flounders.

Wonderful Hospitality and Service!

My wife and I decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Pensacola to help the local economy in light of the BP situation. We were so pleased to find the sand was pure white with no oil in sight! All rooms face the ocean and this hotel staff went way above and beyond the call of duty to make for a perfect celebration. There are great deals everywhere in this area so take advantage asap!

Wedding / Vacation -- Great stay!

A group of family based out of this hotel for a wedding in Navarre. Would definitely stay at this hotel again. Convenient, easy to get to. Kids loved the daily fresh cookies during the day and availability of popcorn at night! Although we could not get in the ocean for the first two days because of the oil, it was still nice sitting out on the beach or at the pool!

Short walk, however it was in the 90's with humidity, not a pleasant experience. We drove pretty much everywhere -- however everything is really close.
