Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach Review #Travel

Stay and Play At The Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach

The Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach is a great place to head for a staycation or vacation. Located on the gulf side of Pensacola Beach on the main strip it’s the perfect place to bring your family for a night….or a few.

Recently, I was hosted by the Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach for a weekend stay.  From the moment we walked through the doors the friendliness of the staff made me feel right at home. I have never been in a hotel that had staff as friendly as they were at this hotel.  I immediately fell in love with the color scheme of green, blue and yellow.  Definitely helped in giving it a very beachy/island feel, both inside and outside the hotel.

After getting all checked in, we headed to our king gulf front room. With soft, serene colors and decor this is definitely a room you can relax in.  It just feels like the beach!

With a king bed and a couch that was a pull out bed, it was perfect for the four of us (my oldest decided to stay home.  Had he come it might have been a wee bit crowded in this particular room, but they do have suites that would have been perfect. The room also has a mini-fridge and microwave in room.  We used it for our sandwich ingredients and small microwaveable meals, which is a great way to save money…..for souvenirs of course!

What I love about this hotel is no matter if you are gulf or island side the views are great on both! Kids and adults alike, should not get bored because there is much to do.  Enjoy a swim (or float) around the lazy river, enjoy the indoor pool, catch the pirate or mermaid show (during the warm seasons of course), go to the arcade or head out to the pool weekend nights for a “Dive-in” movie (certain seasons). Take a moment to relax in a chair by the pool, take a dip in a hot tub, stroll the beach, or sightsee on the island.

With a TV and DVD player in this room, you can pick up movie and have a night (or day) in.  The suites boast a second tv, playstation and bunk area for kids.  Perfect if you’ve had too much sun or the weather is not so good.  For those of us who may have to take a moment to work while on our vacation (a bloggers work never ends) they offer free in room and on property wi-fi. On site restaurants like Riptides, as well as many other local favorites within walking distance, the Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach is prime location for  your upcoming vacation.

We had a blast and came home refreshed.  Although my view of a vacation is a bit different than the idea my kids had…can you see the contrast:
