I stayed at this hotel this weekend and I was not happy. The first night there we saw 2 roaches inside our room. We called housekeeping 4 times in ONE day and still did not receive anything from them. The location was perfect though and that is the only reason that I will even give the hotel one star, but...

Stayed during the Memorial Day weekend. Room looked like a hold-over from 1956. Very shady/sleazy atmosphere. The first hotel I have stayed at that I felt uneasy about mine and my family's personal safety. A lot of screaming and yelling next door and loud banging on the walls. Some one actually tried to unlock and enter our room. The so-called... More

My son and his friends went for Spring Break. The hotel is nothing like the pictures. You know it's bad when teenagers tell you it was disgusting. Plus, when they requested more towels the guy who brought them offered to sell them marijuana. Stay Away!

I booked a week at the hotel. We got there and we're really disappointed. We had a room with 2 beds. They were really small and appeared like the room hadn't been clean. You ever stay at a hotel where you were afraid to lay down on bed? That's what we got. We looked for additional rooms but they all... More

This hotel is nothing like the pictures. It's false advertising!! Our room looked like a shelter. It only had one lamp so half of the room was dark. The beds were full of grit. Our room didn't get cleaned the entire stay. Our microwave was burnt, our mirror was colored on with a marker. There's only 2 plugs, and the... More

Pictures of the rooms do not match what we received. The workers are rude and smoke right outside of the rooms. The map of the property includes amenities that some people are restricted to aka false advertising. The rooms are covered in a layer of grime (I went into 5-6 other rooms of friends I was with). The best things... More

This hotel has nice location within Panama City Beach, and a nice beach. That's pretty much all you can say about this place. The hotel not only looks old and run down, it's maintenance is also very poor. We stayed here because my wife did the IronMan Florida 2013 in October 2013. Lobby was ok, as soon as we went... More

I selected this hotel as it was significantly cheaper than most beach front hotels for the one night I would be staying in Panama City Beach. I'm a very experienced traveler, staying over 200 nights a year in hotels, and I had read the very mixed reviews. The check in process was painless and quick. The woman at the front... More

Based on our experience...The only reason that this hotel is not a zero star is because they won't let you put a zero. Also the only reason the stars show more than a 1 (my speculation alone) is that someone related to the property added stars so it didn't look so pathetic. SERIOUSLY people. We forfeited our $260 deposit to... More
