“Costs too much for what you get”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Be careful when booking online - they offer discounts that make the room NONREFUNDABLE.

Hotel is in an odd location - it sits off an exit that is a one way and it is very hard to get back to the hotel once you leave. Panama City Beach Parkway is madness at all hours of the day and night!

ONLY 1 ELEVATOR!! For 4 floors, including staff and maintenance? This is craziness. And the elevator is horribly slow. Take the stairs.

Hotel smells old. This hotel would benefit from getting rid of its carpet and going hardwoods.

Breakfast is subpar. At least they offer a hot one, though.

I'd much rather stay at the Hampton Inn or even the Sleep Inn up the street. You can do much better for your money.

Room Tip: pick another hotel

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We actually are in the process now of making some great cosmetic updates to the building. Brand new carpet and hardwood is being installed in all of our interior corridors and all of our beautiful guest rooms are in the process of getting a fresh coat of paint. We do hope to see you back to check out some of our great new updates in the near future.

Terrible smell in quest room corridors

broken shoer in room had to take baths
slow elevator ,when it was working
crammed 2 queen beds in king bed room
no dinig room table in kitchen ,was replaced with desk with 1 chair
t v mounted on wall were u can only see from 1 bed ,because beds were placed facing each other ,due to the fact the room was to small to put them side by side

we left early and found other acc. e;lsewhere due to the fact there was no way they could have fixed all of the problems

Room Tip: Do not stay here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a dump . Be warned
