Holiday Inn On Pensacola Beach …

After that last snowy road image from out in Wyoming, I thought that I had better bring it all back home.  This is one of the old Holiday Inn out on Pensacola Beach.  The hotel was torn down after the damage from Hurricanes Ivan and Dennis.  I cannot remember when I made this, but it obviously was not yesterday.  I cannot tell you how many wedding receptions I photographed here, but I am sure that it was at least a hundred or more.  The food was always delicious and you sure could not beat the view when the reception was held up stairs at the Penthouse Lounge.  In this area is where the new Margaritaville Hotel is now located … not exactly in the same spot, but this is a huge piece of real estate.  It was really one of Pensacola Beach’s landmarks for many years.  Now, if I only could find some images of the Dunes Motel and Lounge ….   Thanks for looking and if you have any questions or comments, please let us hear them … Frank

  1. This is a great pic of the old Holiday Inn. My family used to vacation at the old Dunes Motel back in the 70s every summer. If you happen to dig up one of the old Dunes, I’d love to get one. Thanks for this.

    • I wish that I had a photo of the old Dunes Motel out on Pensacola Beach. We had a lot of good times out there back in the 1970’s. Thanks for commenting and please check back … Frank
