Still a fantastic hotel. We stayed at two this trip due to prices - the Springhill refurbished and the Holiday Inn. While the Springhill is nice, the HI still wins due to the pool. The people at both are great - especially Jazzy at the HI. The lazy river still is the best and the walk to the beach easier...

We spent 4 days there this week. The hotel is phenomenal! The hotel was spotless, every single staff member spoke at any meeting, super helpful when I realized I left my toiletry bag. The location is ideal. The pool is amazing. The hotel was fully booked, but it never once felt crowded at the pool or any other time. My...

What a great hotel right on Pensacola Beach. Large parking lot and a very clean inviting exterior. The lobby isn't huge but it is very well kept and the large picture windows let in a ton of light and really set the overall tone of the hotel. My room had a bay view and was very nice.

My stay was ok. All in all, i will not stay here again. It's a tall hotel with only 2 elevators. There was always a wait. Also, I had a room without a balcony, which I'm not used to when going to the beach. My view was bayside. I like to drink my coffee in the morning on the balcony,...
