Well no bells and whistles here but when your sitting on the gulf of Mexico what else do you need? This trip is a long weekend for me and the wife with the added bonus of her 93 year old grandma. My room isn't anything special but it is clean with NO bugs. If your intention is to hang out... More

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! This place is AMAZING!!!!!!!! I took my dead sister and the closet was just big enough ;-). The black mold on the wall really complemented the dead carcass underneath the sheets. The overwhelming odor of rat feces and used condoms really set the atmosphere. My neighbor's bed was a little squeaky last night, you guys need to fix that.... More

I dont think ive ever stayed anywhere worse! First of all, its a teeny tiny space. The beds felt like you were just sleeping on sand. The floors were incredibly dirty if you walked barefoot your feet will turn black! Tv didnt even have cable everything is very outdated and tacky. Our stay came to an end very shortly after... More

After reading all the reviews I was king of worried. But most reviews are about a whole in the wall or the elevator being dirty.... Things that have nothing to do with my actual experience. My husband and my family of 5 had an amazing time beachfront view! The pool was nice everything was perfect!!! Definitely going back this July!

This hotel was really strick and had visitation hours it felt like I was in a dorm or something. They check ristbands. If you are seen drunk and you are underage the hotel staff will come to your room and make you empty out all of your liquor and unopened bottles they take with them. It wasn't a very good... More

Worse hotel ever stayed at in PCB. Never again. Had a problem with one of our trucks and the condo that is... More

This hotel is close to all the Panama City Beach action. Whether visiting for Spring Break or simply a summer trip, this hotel has it all. The layout is more like a small resort, featuring a small onsite convention center, bar, restaurant and even a cafeteria. This hotel is close to Wal-Mart, other souvenir shops and two fun local Clubs... More

Security is awful, one of our friends room got broken into and out deadbolt barely worked. The toilets barely work as... More

This stay wasn't too good. Would expect more from a resort hotel in PCB our room didn't have a dresser, enough clean towels at checkin for 6 people. Room didn't ever get clean during our entire stay. No flat screen TVs. Fridge barely got cold enough to keep beverages cold. Ice machine down the hall could not handle the amount... More
