Great location and breakfast. Friendly staff. Direct beach access

Great hotel slightly away from the hustle of Pensacola Beach. Staff were all super friendly and inviting. The views were fantastic and the short walk to the beach was nice. We will definitely stay here again!

Hotel was very good but did not really enjoy the games played when booking and upon arrival. After booking King room with view contacted hotel said room would be on 2nd floor. Would not assist to get upper floors, hotel staff said call travel company as they could not help. Later booking changed to Queen room with view by Orbitz customer service, to get upper rooms views. Called hotel again to request upper floors, they said it would be noted. Upon arrival said they were upgrading me to a King room which again on the 2nd floor. Gave history, which they checked and finally agreed to give me a Queen room as booked on fifth floor as the did not want to open up higher floors I would presume for cleaning. Breakfast was good big variety. Watched other guest devour substantial amounts of food items every morning. Breakfast staff was friendly along with other employees meet during the stay. Dealing with all employees was very pleasant and hotel was very clean.

It was completely wonderful and the view is the best

The staff from the front desk to the breakfast attendants and housekeepers were very friendly and pleasant. The room was clean and well supplied, and the beds comfortable. The complimentary breakfast is better than most, with cheese omelets, bacon, sausage, gravy and biscuits, along with the normal pancakes, juices, cereal, sweet rolls and fruit. All rooms have a beach view, which is nice. The only negative thing is that the balconies are small and too boxed in, and that the room A/C vents hot air to the balcony, which is stifling on a hot day. very uncomfortable.

This was the 2nd time there & we loved it ! Close to everything but far enough away for privacy !

Great decision to pick up this hotel in Pensacola Beach. All rooms are gulf front that gave us a wonderful view even after sunset and a beautiful sound of waves. Recommend this hotel!!!!!!!

I was satisfied with this hotel. The breakfast was great, and all the rooms have the beach view. Which is totally worth it.

Very nice older hotel. Fantastic beach view and far enough away from the crowds along Pensacola Beach's main drag.

Great place to stay outside all the high traffic places.

Great hotel. Good breakfast. Staff was very Friendly. Love the towels for the pool and beach. Great location for the beach.

Very pleased with our stay at this Holiday Inn Express... Room, staff, breakfast were outstanding. Location was perfect, close to the heart of Pensacola Beach... right on the beach all rooms have a great balcony. Absolutely... will stay here again.

Good location. Great staff. Clean rooms. No restaurant or bar. I am told that Holiday Inn Express does not allow restaurants or bars in their hotels. Anyway, that kept the party types out.

Great location with super restaurants nearby. All rooms have view of ocean from balcony. Absolutely perfect

It was very clean, the staff was very friendly, good breakfast choices, very convenience location to the beach and great view to the ocean, the sunrise is very expectacular

Experience was great, people were great but if I'm gonna spend almost 275 for one night I really expected a little more. Front staff was more than helpful and the gulf facing rooms are great.

My stay at the Holiday Inn Express on Pensacola beach was so relaxing and comfortable. The location was perfect for walking to the boardwalk and surrounding restaurants. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating and the other patrons were friendly. Rooms were clean and well maintained. My family had a fantastic vacay!

Beautiful hotel, each room has a balcony and gulf view, extremely nice stuff, nice room with a fridge, nice breakfast, tea/coffee/ oranges round the clock. A little further away from the restaurants/shops, lacks indoor pool and jacuzzi.

Staff members are friendly. Good breakfast. You can get late check out.

We're glad you found the staff to be friendly and we love that you noted the hotel was clean. Guests sure do enjoy our breakfast and many eat it like it's free. (And it is). We are so sorry about the issue with your room request, particularly after you called the hotel directly. We will looked into it and saw that the room type they booked for you was located only on the 2nd floor. But that does not excuse why after they changed it you were moved back.Since the hotel has 8 floors we assign the 5th through 7th floor to high floor requests. (The eight floor is suites). We look forward to hosting you again!
