Stayed here in Oct. 2015. Trouble with reservation through Booking.com, apparently not the motels fault. However, was unable to accommodate me with a King room that was reserved through Booking.com. I was offered a handicapped Queen room and took it. It was the only non-smoking room left. The staff member checking us in stated that they never received my reservation... More

For the price of $60/night, it has a lot to offer. 1. Outdoor pool. 2. Very nice-working and clean shower. 3. Clean room. 4. Make-your-own breakfast waffles. 5. Close to the Beach (if you drive) and GULF STATE College (walking distance). 6. Very freindly front-desk staff. 7. Working A/C which gets ice-cold. But that is about it. If you're on... More

We needed a extra night before we left for home and this place was a good choice. Our room was very basic: bed , shower, tv ect.. But, it was clean and maintained well. Small breakfast bar in the morning is a plus. It's a good distance (about 15 mins away) from the beach and activities you would want easy... More

I checked into the Hathaway Inn in early October. The place is located fairly close to Panama City Beach being just before the bridge leading there. Rates are quite fair, and we were allowed to check in early for $15 (and let me tell you, after driving ten hours at night it was well worth it). I'm a smoker, so... More

The room smelled very stale. It was a non smoking room that had been smoked in and something was sprayed to try to cover it up. We went to the front desk and asked about swapping rooms we were told that they were "sold out" but only had two rooms left. I'm not exactly sure how you can have two... More

I have been traveling for about a month now and this is by far the best bang for my buck that I've encountered, the staff was extremely friendly, from the housekeeper to the front desk, the room was extremely clean and well equipped. It was also one of the cheapest places in the area! Staying here should be a no... More

We booked a non-smoking room, however the room smelled so awful of smoke that we left the next day. Otherwise, the room was OK, the bed and bathroom seemed clean, but the table beside the bed was not. The women that welcomed us was nice, however the guy the next day was a disaster. We had to ask for cups... More

My friend and I stayed for 2 nights. This was the worst place I have ever stayed during my travels. There was hair on the sheets when we pulled the blankets back. Hair all over the faucet and these didn't look like hair from the top of your head. The hallways look like they had not been vacuumed in I... More

The staff including the manager was evenly rude! They spoke about their "regular" customers business in front of us. They yelled at customers over the phone and proceeded to talk about them after they hung up. This place is run down. We never made it to our room because some how we were booked on a smoking room for 3... More

Stayed here a few years ago and it is a pretty nice and cheap hotel. It was nice for one night and being on a budget. Probably would stay there again for a nice trip to get away from home. Staff was pretty nice too!
