The hotel was very clean and surprisingly efficient. We had a full kitchen and a great view of the beach. All the staff was very friendly and hard working. It's located in a great area, easy access to restaurants . We definitely would go back again.

This is an older property, but clean and nice. Everything you really need. Not swanky, but nice for the price. The pool area was very clean and well maintained. We really liked the location at the quieter end of the strip, close to Pier Park. We wished the bedroom and living space could change places because it was very bright... More

We have stayed at the Beachcomber for a week in June, for the last two summers. We always book directly with the hotel and we request the 5th or 6th floors. Best Views ever!! This hotel is within walking distance from the grocery store and Pier Park. Don't forget to bring your flashlights, we enjoy hunting crabs when the sun... More

In April of this year, I was invited by friends to attend the Sea Breeze Jazz Festival. My friends attend every year and usually book condo units at the Tidewater (great Condos by the way but it seems there isn’t a listing for the unit I stayed in so I couldn’t post my review). Prior to this trip I had... More

The hotel is right on the beach with a nice swimming pool open until 11pm and 2 showers. The view from the rooms, with small dunes and the palm trees, is so nice, especially at sunset. The beach is not crowded in front of the hotel. You can book parasail, banana boat and catamaran right in front of the hotel.... More

I mean what else can I say for beachfront away from the congestion (but walking distance to pier park) and it being under $200 a night? Book via their website its the cheapest rates actually. The breakfast is continental but it puts food in the stomach if you don't want to go out. The beach was perfect with just small... More

I rarely say a hotel is excellent, but I was impressed by the seemingly constant cleaning that occurred. I watched each morning as the pool and pool deck were cleaned, and I never thought twice about the bed I slept in. It was actually more comfortable than my own at home. The location was great. In a less crowded are... More

We stayed at the Beachcomber the week of July 6. We did a lot of research to find just what we wanted, and we feel like we hit a home run with this choice. We arrived around noon. They were able to give us an early check in and put us on the 6th floor right away. Unexpected and totally... More

I'm here now for a spontaneous visit with my out of town sister for 5 days. I checked at 32 places to stay in PCB for 6 people until i found Beachcomber by the Sea available booking it last week. We've paid $264.94/night with all fees & taxes included. With this we get 2 double beds at the front door... More
