For the people writing bad reviews about this place, I just want to say -- For Christ sakes, it is an Econo Lodge, not the Ritz Carlton. If you want the Ritz, pay $500 a night. This is an Econo Lodge. For the money, it is a good value. This is a sleep only place, no frills, but then again,... More

We decided last minute to travel at night so our small baby would sleep for the ride. Our beach hotel was booked full until our reservation so we chose this hotel for a late arrival/early departure kind of night. It was a MISTAKE! We were put on the second floor, which was understandable given the busy season. The issues were... More

Ok. So a friendly staff, newly painted walls, clean sheets, quiet, nice location but away from beach for $75 less than competitors is not everything. Place getting a real bad rap. I may not take my wife there, but it is doable on a fixed budget. A lot of workers stay there. Is safe, but yes lacking in the romantic... More

This was by far the worst experience EVER!!! When my family and I got there we were given a room with a broken entry door. I put my key card in the slot and it did not work. Right next door a housekeeper who was cleaning a room(the same style as mine) informed me that the door was broke. She... More

We drove to pcb on a whim just to go to the beach. We knew ahead of time rooms would be slim to none. I paid $150 for a 2 double beds. The walls have paint cover up jobs, the tub was cracked, the towels had cigarette burns in them. If your just going to sleep, here then it's fine.... More

Hello, we pulled up your information and looked at the room that you stayed in and we did not find any of the damages that you mentioned. We recently just repainted the exterior and interior of this property and we looked for cracks in the tub and did not find any. If you would have brought that to our attention... More

The hotel is really old, it looks like it is falling apart. It does not justify what they charge you for. The bathroom was not disgusting, but it needed a lot of repairs. Half of the lights did not work in our room. The carpet looked nasty. I am definitely not coming back

Hello Sheila, we are sorry for any experience/inconvenience you may have faced here. We have been working hard to renovate the property for a few months now. We just replaced the lights and carpet in the rooms less than 5 months ago so you shouldn't have faced any problems with those two. However we would like to address and fix... More

Stayed here last nice with a discount from Choice Hotels. $25 is a steal for a hotel, but this p.o.s wasn't even worth it. First of all I reserved a non smoking room with a request to not be beside live-ins. Too much to ask I guess. They put us in a smoking room right beside a live-in. Maybe the... More

Close to Panama City Beach at half the price! Nice CLEAN room with coffee maker, fridge, microwave & ironing board. Nice comfortable bed and big rooms. Carpet looked cheap but clean. The help was very accommodating with any questions I had. There is a 24 hour Kangaroo Truck Stop just across the street. I would stay again and hope to... More

We came down to start our vacation a day early and just needed a place to stay for the night. The lady at the front desk was VERY nice. Got us into a room quickly. I paid around 80$ for one night, which I didn't mind it was the cheapest I could find. The room was clean, nothing to complain... More

This motel does not stick out in my mind as good or bad. The price was "reasonable" for this area and why I stayed here. The room was clean. The people were polite. Not a destination stop but adequate for those passing through.
