OK

They charged me a 200 extra when I got there cause I live local and said they would return it as soon as I checked out and it still hasn’t been returned

Hotel room was nice and clean, except for the shower. It had hair and dirt in it and looked like someone had just came from the beach and showered or rinsed out a mop. Staff was very nice but they did allow people to lounge in the lobby without face masks. Overall it was a great deal, I would stay again.

The room is pretty clean. But the thing is the lady at reception seem like unprofessional. We’re usually get introduced about pool and breakfast area, also wifi access code. She didn’t say anything of it.

All very Clean, bedding very comfortable and staff friendly & helpful

Very nice hotel with pleasant staff, restaurant in hotel was excellent - food and service.

Best hotel in Pensacola! Clean, modern and new looking. Just wish the rooms had blackout shades

Hold on my card but nothing in the mini bar. Bar tender on Saturday night was terrible. Poor service. Way overpriced for what you get poor value.

I like this property because it was easy to access the interstate and get to other desired location in which I wanted to visit. I didn't like the property due to the fact I felt a little unsafe and uneasy at times. I observed a lot of shady individuals while I was there for example drug hypes walking around.

New Beds, great staff, friendly, near restaurants in town

I was very impressed with how friendly the staff was. The pool and hot tub was awesome and clean. Even though I wanted to stay on the beach I was very satisfied with my stay here.

Stayed until we could check into our condo. Clean and comfortable.

maid service was slow on cleansing the room. They did a good job, but slow on getting there. First time I got a bill for breakfast at a Holiday Inn Express and no cinnamon roll. That is part of your trade mark. I did not had to pay because i received meal tickets. but hated I was not able to return for a cinnamon roll, fruit, or juice. Since I enjoy when handling early morning task. So when in Pensacola I'll probably go back to Hilton Garden. Please understand free breakfast is a standard will fast travel in today world.

The hotel met our expectations. Property in great condition and well maintained.

Pros: Friendly staff, clean room, prompt service, good quality breakfast Cons: Limited location because you can only make right turn on Davis Highway; Need to make uturn half a mile down the road if you need to go north;

North Davis Highway Pensacola FL
