Everything about our stay was excellent. The hotel is right on the beach, the rooms were clean and modern, the breakfast was good, and the staff was extremely friendly. I will be staying here the next time I am in Pensacola.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kansasbeachbum Pensacola beach - better than good-enough
We stayed at Holiday Inn Express on Pensacola beach as a last minute trip. This property is right on the beach with every room having a view out to the gulf/ocean. Everything was great. The staff was awesome everywhere on the property.
Only problem was close by was an air conditioner that had its bearings going out. Terrible noise during the time it ran. Not a big problem as we were out of the room most of the day and at night, I put in ear plugs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PollFam4 Excellent staff, well managed proprtty
This hotel is very well maintained. The staff is very helpful. The front desk associates were upbeat and informative. There was also an associate working the breakfast buffet every morning who gave us some great ideas other than the beach. The games and lending library are great ideas as well as the beach toys left by other guests for others to use was a very nice surprise. The beach and hotel are quiet, which offers a great location for family fun. The only downside to the hotel is the size of the pool. IMO it is too small.

The location was great...on the beach and all rooms face the ocean. Staff was great and the property was very clean. Nice pool. I do wish it had a grill outside so we could have enjoyed the outdoor area more without having to leave for dinner. This is a great place with a great staff!

Overjoyed to have been upgraded to a suite for the weekend. Staff was very helpful when one of the girls became ill and need to see a doctor. Even with the ER visit it was still a GREAT weekend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Huskersrus Best Hotel on the Beach!
Holiday Inn Express on Pensacola Beach is our Paradise found. The staff is so nice and helpful you'll plan your next vacation here. Tyler at the front desk is fantastic and will make sure you have everything you need to make your stay the best posible. Breakfast is excellent and the breakfast staff is very friendly. All rooms face the beautiful gulf and white sand beach. This is our paradise found!

although overall i was pleased, i was disappointed with certain thing as compared to stays at other HolidayInn Express locations. i realize no two can be exactly alike. some are just better than others. some rooms are larger seems like . furnishings are also ve
ried from one location to another.

The fact that this hotel only has beachfront rooms, therefore having fewer rooms, led to fewer crowing issues which pleased us very well. We visited during a popular time, but always had space and quietness to relax and have a good time. Will be returning for our anniversary for sure!

Cannot beat this location if you want to be on the beach, the views from the penthouse suites were incredible and the friendliness and efficiency of the staff surprising for a hotel which mainly deals with tourist and not business travelers.

During our four-day stay at the Holiday Inn I observed the staff especially the guys that work outside maintenance guys the guys the clean the chairs clean the tables were some of the hardest working happiest people I've ever seen in the hotel setting and I used to travel for a living so anyway we had a great time will see you the next time we come back because we will be back and we drove from Texas

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Stay - Start to Finish
Visiting Pensacola Beach was very pleasant experience, and Holiday Inn Express was the major factor. Staff was knowledgeable about the area and made excellent recommendations for restaurants and activities. Their pleasantness seemed to carry over to the guests, and every one we encountered was evidently having as good a time as we. Our Nephew from Germany was with us and he also thoroughly enjoyed his stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mila777 modest hotel for luxury cost
Very average property, didn't find anything superb or extraordinary that would call for the rate they have, staff has flat attitude, no extra smile or gesture.

Excellent location with a nice beach and pool. We watched Dolphins from the balcony every morning. Size of hotel and number of rooms is nice. Quick easy access to room and elevators. Great having a Gulf View from every room. Breakfast was good. Peg Leg Pete's was a good place to eat. I would skip Red Fish Blue Fish - my least favorite place to eat. Fitness on Board across the street is an excellent place to go Paddle Boarding. We did the lesson with an instructor - It was great - highly recommend it.

I stay at the Holiday Inns since 2001 for business and vacations. I was a little disappointed in this hotel. I was not rerecognized as a gold memeber until I got to my room. was not informed at check in that chairs for the beach was a charge every day of $30 which I feel is a little pricey as a gold memeber should receive a discount. This was suppose to mean you got the chair for the day but at 5:00pm you had to give the chair back even if it states its for the day.
Some of the front desk staff are not very friendly one treated us like we were bothering her.
Food was ok had better. If I got back I probably will stay at another hotel on the beach.

Clean beach option. Beautiful view and well keep facility. If you like to relax in peace at the beach this hotel doesnt disappoint.
Be sure to bring your cooler ...no store/adult beverages within walking distance (but that part of what makes it quiet)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by budahbuddy803 Good Hotel/Beach Rental Issues
The hotel was fine. No true complaints. HOWEVER, me and my company set a chair, towel, cooler, and beach bag on the beach a good ways away from the rental chairs and umbrellas. After a couple hours, we went in to each lunch (30min to 1 hr). When we returned the rental company set chairs and umbrellas no more than 2 ft away from our stuff. It would have been completely uncomfortable to stay in that spot so we packed up for the day and left. One of the rental guys had the nerve to ask us if we "wanted to rent any chairs yet" as if he did that on purpose trying to "punish" us for bringing our own chairs and things. I did no mention it to the hotel nor say what I wanted to to this rental guy. I deemed what I wanted to say inappropriate because I was a little heated that our space was violated.

We stayed here for a week in late July. The hotel staff was very helpful and always greeted you cheerfully. The rooms have great views of the gulf. The beach was not at all crowded. We will definitely be coming back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Music City Great staff that cares about their guests and their property
This was our second time staying here -- the first time was 5 years ago around the time it opened.
Nothing has changed. Still has a wonderful, helpful, friendly staff. Everything is very clean (inside and outside).
Tess in the breakfast area and Diane at the front desk (I think that was her name) were exceptional, as were many others whose names escape me at the moment. This is everyone from the maintenance staff to the front desk to the kitchen staff.
Unfortunately, of our 3 nights there, I only slept good one night. The a/c was either too cold for me when it was on and too stuffy when it wasn't. It was pretty noisy, too. Even the "firm" pillows felt soft to me which didn't help with sleeping either. That's really my only complaint.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend this hotel to others. I'm pretty picky about hotels so I think it's saying a lot if I'm impressed!

This was our first time at the Holiday Inn Express Pensacola Beach, and we will definitely go back. We were there during the extremely busy Blue Angels week and there were no problems at all. We usually stay at the Hilton just down the beach and there always seems to be something we have to deal with. Our stay was stress free and much more economical than the Hilton. Breakfast was always fresh and had plenty of seating available to accommodate the busy weekend crowd. Our room was cleaned everyday with fresh towels and linens,coffee and a very courteous staff. Fruits, popcorn, coffee and filtered water free and available during the day.Fresh baked cookies were also set out a few hours everyday. Front desk attendants were always nice, handing out fresh towels for pool and beach with the "trust to bring them back method" unlike others who write room numbers down. It was a very fun atmosphere even letting us play guitar with a sing along in the lobby on a rainy afternoon. I myself like the no smoking policy. Can't give them enough praise! Great stay, highly recommend and we will be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Best on the Beach
This was my first vacation in almost 5 years, and it was well worth it: 5 nights on the beach with a great view. The entire staff was the best and although I am extremely low-maintenance, it was noticed right off when I walked in after an 11-hour drive from Texas. I am already planning my next trip next summer, and I will absolutely stay here again! Thanks for everything, it was my best vacation ever.

Upon arrival the staff were very friendly. Checked-in. We went to the room. The room was not what we requested. I went back to the front desk and told the receptionist we order a big room. She suggested getting the Penthouse. In my mind for the amount of money I paid, I thought I requested for the Penthouse. I told the receptionist we will take the Penthouse. Immediately without looking through the computer, receptionist said there are none available.
Being that I am Deaf, I rely on Video Relay Service (interpreter telephone service) to communication with hearing people via telephone. VRS requires turbo internet speed in order to connect online. Holiday Inn Express internet service was awful. I was unable to communication with the hotel traveling agency regarding my reservation for several hours. When I finally got a connection, the pictures kept freezing making it difficult to communicate and worst of all I lost connection. I had to call the traveling agency back and repeat the process all over again.After convey what had happen with receptionist, the travel agency called Holiday Inn and asked about the Penthouse. They stated their were one available at the time I checked in but someone else has reserved for it. If a guest want a Penthouse, one must reserved through Holiday Inn, this cannot be done through any other agency. I find this absurd and vicious. Holiday Inn had made it altogether difficult and our entire stay was ruin.
