“Not for the stuck-ups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Ok, so we are visiting Holiday Terrace now and let me just say...My family and I love it! Sure it needs updating but our room was very clean. We asked to see it before we paid based off of what other reviews said and loved it. It has a kitchenette, gulf view, spacious,clean pool and great location. Our friends are on another floor and they are happy with their room too. I see there are bad reviews so maybe they are just stuck-up with extremely high standards or maybe some rooms are better then others. Idk. My family and friends and I are having a blast! Happy with our choice. Our family will be returning and I will be recommending this place.

Room Tip: 3rd floor has a great view but not too high for those afraid of heights.

I booked the hotel on-line based on photos and other reviews but, sadly, I was not impressed when we arrived and actually saw the room. Everything needs to be updated, beds, TVs, bathrooms, etc. Not Clean.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before you pay.

Beautiful view from our room. We came from Georgia with no reservations planning to only stay from Sunday until Wednesday but we decided to extend our stay until Friday. The price of the room was excellent and staff was very helpful and nice. We will be back soon to stay here again.

My husband and I are frequent visitors to Panama City Beach. We usually stay at more expensive hotels, but with the economy the way it is, we have had to cut back. We did not want to give up being right on the water, but price was an issue. The Holiday Terrace fit our needs perfectly. If you want fancy bathrooms, luxury beds, and high speed elevators, go somewhere else. Be prepared to pay for it. But, if you want a good sized room, with breath taking views, you can't beat the value at Holiday Terrace. Also, the staff is friendly and very accommodating.

I just returned from my stay at this hotel and I wanted to share my experience. First of all the elevators are horrible. One actually broke and had a person on the inside. With no air I might add..
The rooms are not so bad, the beds are very hard and the pillows thin. Bring yours from home. The cleaning of the rooms or there lack of, is awful. We stayed a total of 5 days, the room was only picked up once.. no vacuuming or sheets changed..basically the only thing done was trash removed. No tub cleaned or toilets.
Water pressure is also an issue. There is none. There is no ice on the floors, you have to go to the front office and get a small bag.. They charge 2.00 if you want a bigger bag. 2 of the days we were at the pool area around 11:30, the property cleaners were blowing around the pool for 1 1/2 hours while we were trying to enjoy our relaxation. I did call the front desk and complained and he stopped shortly after. There is absolutely no security on the property, if you are family and not a party person is an important thing.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was very nice, clean linens, very clean room and facility! We stayed for 5 nights on the beach with a pool and very close to shops, close to shopping and awesome restaurants... I do wish there would have been an iron in the room!!! I would stay there again!!!
