We booked this via Wyndam. We wanted a king room but found out they (Wyndam) only books doubles. You think the rooms are backwards because the beds are in front and the sitting area is on the beach side. It had a little kitchen and extra sink - which comes in handy since there's usually just one sink in the... More

My fiancée and I stayed at the beachcomber aug 17-20th for a much needed vacation. When we arrived at the front desk we were greeted by a very nice clerk named Camille. She was very knowledgable about all the amenities of the hotel and surrounding areas. The room was neat and clean. There is also too flat screen T.V.'s in... More

Had a great time. Our room had 2 A/C's and 2 flat screens, very comfortable and quiet! Plenty of room in the bathroom. Pool was very clean. Large pool deck (needs deck lights at night and music all day until pool closes.) Does have laundry room coined washers and dryers. Not far from the Pier, Pier Park, Winn Dixie, Walmart,... More

We just spent 1 week at the Beachcomber by the Sea. Rooms were spacious with a sitting area and full kitchen. The staff were very friendly and it was clean. The rooms do need to be updated though. The first room we had was right across from the elevator and the rug had some holes in it. We asked to... More

Absolutely love this hotel. Perfect location and every single room has beach front view. Beds are super comfy. Rooms are clean and the kitchen came in very handy. Love how living room and bedroom are separate with 2 flat screen tv's. The staff wasn't very knowledgeable on some things and breakfast could've been a little better as they do not... More

We chose Beachcomber mainly because the price was good and online pictures looked okay. Our view from the balcony was great, but our rooms were somewhat disappointing. The living room had a couch that looked dirty. We covered it with a sheet before we would sit on it. Carpet needed cleaning. There was no other chair in the living room-just... More

It was hard finding a hotel for a family with 4 kids and 2 adults that was reasonably priced. We found this one and had the best family vacation! We stayed on the 5th floor and the view was great!! The hotel is away from the really crowded part of pcb but still close to stores. We walked to pier... More
