We have a boat that we stay on when we visit the kids. Any time we had major malfunctions with the boat, or more visitors in town than would fit on our boat we stayed at the Buccaneer. had a lot of good times in the bar restaurant and hotel. It has been sold and is closed.

My husband and I stayed at the Buccaneer Beach Motel last fall. The staff are WONDERFUL from the front desk to housekeeping...Our room overlooked the bay. Our housekeeper was super attentive. She knew we had a dog and always watched out for her when she entered the room. We will definitely return and hopefully get the same room. The Buccaneer... More

The first room we checked into smelled very musty and moldy . . probably from the A/C unit. We asked for a different room which was better. Like another reviewer said here, the water came out of the tap brown for a while but eventually cleared up. I really dont mind older motels but this one I wouldnt recommend to... More

The water in the rooms is brown from 8pm till 10am. The fridge isn't working well. the door on it is full of mold and won't close. Beds are not comfortable and if you walk bear foot on the carpet your feet will be black. Staff has been rude. Then they charge $3.00 for ice. The only reason we are... More

Old, run down property. The rooms are clean, but fixtures and decor are a bit beat up. Restaurant and bar attached bring some life to this place bit it really needs upgrading and modernizing. We won't return until completed.

I had not been on a vacation in a couple of years and needed some time and peace to recharge. My best friend lives in Panama City and the Buccaneer is not far from her home. I had a VERY relaxing vacation! I was given probably the best room in the motel. The view of St. Andrews Bay was both... More

The rooms are a bit dated and the wifi speed is abysmal. Floor is old, but not dirty and the beds are clean. I was told that even the basic rooms had a flatscreen HDTV, and clearly, this is not a flat screen HDTV. The biggest problem is all the drunk and loud people at night. This place is NOT... More

This hotel was run down. Restroom was filthy, front desk staff offered no help. We booked for 3 nights left on first night. This trip was booked through Travelocity. What you get when you arrive and what the pictures show are two different items.
