“Not close to the beach!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

The staff were exceptional, friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and nice. However hotel website was deceiving as to location and property. Small pool, no hot tub. 1 mile to beach. Not a hotel you would stay at for vacation, more of a business type or one night passing through .

Dear Deergirl,

We greatly appreciate you taking the time and writing a review about our hotel. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
Sorry about the confusion concerning our location. The site, as you mentioned, states that we're " one mile " from the beach!
Please give me a call at 850.249.2501, at your convenience, and let me know which part of the site you felt deceiving.
We hope to see you again in the near future.

Best,

Sam H & the SI PCB Team

Ask for a bathtub if you want one. Our room only had a shower, which was fine with me, but I guess if you have young kids, you would want a tub. The doors and some spots in walls were dinged up pretty bad, but the hotel was clean and we slept well. (Since the bulk of spring break had just wrapped up, I imagine they haven't had time to do many repairs). The breakfast was good and the attendant was constantly restocking things and cleaning tables. The front desk attendants were very friendly and, upon seeing that we were Diamond Reward members, upgraded us to a suite and gave us some bottled water. There was a faint smell of incense in the air, which I didn't find unpleasant; just a bit odd. pcbeachspringbreak.com/spring-break-2013-school-break-dates/‎ was a very helpful website in planning our trip to the area. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: upper floors, unless you have pets....I understand they keep them on the first floor for the most pa...

Dear rebeccapeteca,

Thank you for taking the time and providing us with some feedback about your stay. Ask for a tub is a great tip for anyone with little ones.
Now, that spring break is over, we're cleaning carpets, fixing doors and painting walls... to get everything ready for your next visit!
We're a 100% smoke free hotel, so we do not use incense or anything that would great smoke in the room. It might of been a fellow neighbor! Hope to see you again soon.

Best Regards,

Sam H & the SI PCB Team!

It is a good hotel...when i read it is a two start, i was expecting something worse but i was happy with what i got. There was a lot of spring breakers in the hotel due to the time of the year we were there...so if you are going there during spring break and dont like a lot of teenagers around partying, panama city may not be a good pick. Over all, i would rate this hotel very good.

I have to visit panama city every 3 weeks for work. 2 years ago, after trying out several different hotels from mom/pop to resort chains on the beach, I find i am happiest at this location.
This is the cleanest and best priced hotel in the area. Last night my rate was 1/2 the price of a Marriott over the bridge and best of all, this sleep in is cleaner and close to the beach where all the action is. I only come in town for business but this is where I plan on staying when I bring my family for a vacation visit. It is 2 mins from a dozen attractions.

What I like about this Sleep In:

Excellent Customer Service
Always Clean lobby and clean rooms
Best Prices in town.
Free Breakfast
After my 2nd visit the staff members remembered my name.....Impressive!
Staff always happy and smile making you feel welcomed.
Location is close to the strip, restaurants, clubs, and across the street from taxi service if you plan on having a drink.
Great for Family and business visits.
Staff are very knowledgeable about the area, where to eat and things to do.
Lobby and breakfast area is perfect for small business meeting
WiFI is super fast and free!

Great Job guys!

I stay at the Panama City Beach location every two weeks. Sam and his staff go out of their way to help with anything I need. Its always a pleasure to stay there. The room is always clean and I show up without a reservation and they make sure I get a room. Great Staff....

We were in Panama City Beach for only one day, and Choice Hotels had several options for our stay. We found the Sleep Inn to be the perfect location. We took the advice of others who posted reviews. We requested an upper floor. It was a king room, with a mircrowave and a small frig. We were very pleased with our stay. We almost missed breakfast, as it ended at 9 and we were 8 minutes late. We were able to get a couple slices of bread to toast, some peanut butter, and a banana. With a cup of tea for me, and coffee for my husband, it got us on the road. Guess we should have read the welcome book.
