This was a time share exchange, and we had a good first visit to Panama City Beach, but this hotel was a mixed bag. Here's the GOOD: great ocean view, right on the beach, nice towels, and comfortable beds. As a bonus, we had an end unit and were able to watch the New Year's Eve fireworks from the living room and balcony! Here's the BAD: many of the the furnishings are worn, the appliances are old, and the wi-fi promised throughout was actually available only in the common areas for the four of us--all Mac addicts who log on all of the time. In addition there was a flood on the third floor above us, which is not entirely the hotel's fault except that their appliances are so old that this probably happens more often than it might otherwise. We came home from dinner our first night and found water on the floor and cooking utensils sitting half-full of water. There was water on the tile in the dining room area, too, due to a storm and a poorly sealed window. The AC/heater unit was ancient and rattled. The remote needed a new battery and the desk person was rude to our Finnish physician friend staying with us--he was actually shocked. AND HERE IS THE UGLY: check out my photos. You will see the lovely ocean view and the overflowing dumpster and discarded toilet IN FRONT of our unit, and two discarded washing machines and pallets of repair materials very near to us that we passed every time we retrieved our car from the parking lot. The two washing machines were hauled away after five days. The dumpster was overflowing when we arrived, and was not hauled away for six days and then returned with debris not picked up from the ground. The toilet was still there when we left. I can see no excuse for this except a total lack of concern for the guests.
