I have asthma and many allergies. I was concerned about staying at an older place. I could only afford one night at the more expensive places. I took a chance with a three night stay. I had no regrets. I prepared 90% of food I ate in the kitchen in my room. We used the pool, We went to beach... More

By far this wasn't the nicest place we've ever been. It wasn't the worst either though. You couldn't beat it for the price. It's been several years since we've been too. The place was an almost perfect location. I requested first floor which was granted after also providing a coupon which gave us the room for like 63.00 a night.... More

The rooms were clean. The staff was great. The view was AMAZING! I was able to open the door and watch the children in the pool or at the beach! It was great. The only problems I had was the parking was absolutely horrible because it shares a parking lot with the restaurant Sharkey's and there was no wifi in... More

Panama City Beach has its fair share of non-chain motels. This one is fine. Lovely view. Our room was clean. We could hear all our neighbors. The elevator is slow which only an issue at checkout. We would book again

Read the bad reviews before we came but was game to give this place a shot. The desk clerks, mgrs., housekeeping people were all nice but this place needs a major overhaul. The owners need to sink a little money into completely renovating this place. Location and views are awesome. It seems a shame to waste it by not maintaining... More

We have stayed at other hotels in this company and have enjoyed ourselves. NOT here. We were down for 3 days and 2 nights. We also were informed at the desk that the beach chairs ARE not free to guests. Need to check your listing. The first room they gave us actually had a key, not a card well guess... More

We booked The Reef for a quick getaway from Nashville. Let's just say, the best thing about this hotel is the beach. The hotel isn't great. HOWEVER, BE WARNED RE THE BEACH CHAIRS... the websites all mention that the hotel has beach chairs. One of the main reasons we chose this hotel was the proximity to the beach and the... More

After staying at PALM GROVE for less than 12 hours, we were transferred to The Reef. This hotel is nice for a Labor Day weekend, or any weekend, at the Beach. The pool was clean and the rooms were clean and we had a wonderful weekend.
