We decided to stop, and check out Panama City on our trip! Being it was a weekend, and not wanting to spend a fortune at the beach area, our GPS directed us to this Best Western. The property looked nice from the street, and the lobby area was clean, and tastefully decorated. The reception clerk was professional, polite, and made... More

We found this hotel on this site for a cheaper rate than most for a Sunday night. When we arrived everything seemed nice and check-in was smooth. When we got to the room it was a little outdated and this hotel doesn't have an elevator. Our room was missing the shower curtain and we only had one set of towels... More

My sister and I stayed here for one night, en route to Mobile. The desk clerk couldn't have been friendlier or more welcoming. Then we parked the car in the back, and we used the rear entrance to go to our room. The back door was propped open--never a good sign--and there wasn't a camera connecting this area to the... More

Not that far from the beach activities. Across the street from the Panama City Mall. Plenty of restaurants. Free breakfast, and plenty of it. Something for everyone. pool was great. fitness center was small but functional. Coupon tickets were by the elevator. The staff could also help you with where you wanted to go. Will be back again.

We had to change rooms because the first room was so musty. The second room was better, but not by much. All of the remote controls were either not working or otherwise messed up. Other guests had issues with their remotes as well. This is an expensive hotel (20,000 points) for what it is. It was not worth the price.... More

First I would like to say that the check in went smoothly. They were friendly and accommodating. We did not realize there is not an elevator and I am recovering from a broken leg so they did switch rooms and allow for early check in. Sadly nobody put that in the system and around 2-3 am someone was trying to... More

Staff were very friendly, especially Pam who was very accommodating and helpful. Breakfast is plentiful, with a variety of choices and delicious! Rooms are on the larger side with a small couch and desk. Hotel is clean, quiet and close to many local amenities.

This motel has the good fortune to be built near, but not adjacent to a busy highway in a resort town. Our room was unexpectedly quiet. Our family in a nearby facility did not have the same positive experience. The staff were quite efficient.

This is, by Far, one of the greatest best westerns I've had the pleasure of staying at, and I've stayed at quite a few over the years. From work to family vacations, to quick over night stays. excellent service, clean facilities, helpful and friendly staff, Two thumbs up!!!
