On the interstate, with no beach access
The Holiday Inn Pensacola North Davis Highway is located right on the interstate, but is only accessible from one side. To reach the hotel from the other side of the interstate, making a U-turn is required. While the hotel is conveniently located only 10 minutes from the Pensacola Airport, the hotel is a decent drive from beaches and main tourist attractions. A new apartment complex sits behind the hotel, while a somewhat run-down restaurant and gas station are adjacent to the property.
The Florida Panhandle, also widely known as the Emerald Coast, is known for beautiful beaches stretching for several hundred miles along the Gulf of Mexico.
This trendy Holiday Inn may not stray far from the ordinary, but it does provide a contemporary, comfortable place to stay. The lobby is furnished with eclectic textiles and artwork, a big flat-screen TV, and decorative fireplace. Modern furniture and vibrant colors make the hotel feel more upscale than some chains. Each of the 114 rooms features a colorful accent wall, and big, comfortable beds with crisp white linens, but generic bathrooms with shower/tub combos. Amenities include a fitness center, free Wi-Fi, and an outdoor pool. This Holiday Inn is a great value pick for travelers looking for close proximity to the airport rather than the beaches.
