The reviews on this place are all over the place, and I know why. I booked last minute for a few days, and the available room was on the street side, no view, nothing special. The next day I moved to a room on the back side, and it was awesome, with a little patio leading directly to the beach. Spend the extra dollars for a great room, and it's suddenly a great resort value on a beautiful room. The staff was wonderfully accommodating, especially Camille in getting me into an oceanfront room! The location was convenient with a really good restaurant right next door and places to souvenir shop within walking distance. I'd stay there again if I was in the area.
Just spent 3 nights at Bikini Beach Resort in Panama City Beach. The weather was beautiful, so we were able fo escape the room to the gorgeous beach. The hotel is old and worn and in a lot of disrepair: not quaint. The ocean view was blocked by untrimmed palm trees. The bathroom seemed fairly clean, but NO water pressure in the shower and the hair dryer provided in the bathroom was gross: I don't think it had ever been cleaned, and I avoided touching it. The parking lot is fairly non-existent (maybe 10 spaces?): it was blocked by large, smelly trash containers which we had to pass getting to the street. The parking lot ACROSS the street seemed adequate but involved making U-turns on the main road to get there. And also recrossing the very busy street with no pedestrian crosswalk or stoplight. The biggest asset of the hotel was LOCATION. If you are assured of good weather and plan to stay outside, the tiny room with noisy air conditioner might be considered adequate. We hung bath and beach towels on the balcony to dry due to humidity inside. We wore socks inside to keep our feet off the very damaged floor. And we never unpacked: there was no space to put anything, and it was questionable as to when the furniture had last been cleaned. A maintenance person entered out room with a key and without knocking one night (a mistake). If all you are looking for is a toilet, a sink, a bed and easy access to the beach, this place would be ok. If you're looking for a comfortable room to relax, this is not the place. For its tiny size and lack of amenities, this place is way overpriced. I have posted photos elsewhere to go with this review.…
We stayed here October 18-19, 2019 to help celebrate our son's 21st birthday. We booked a triple room. The rate was great, the room was clean. There was a tropical storm coming in, we got to sit right in the enclosed balcony to watch the waves roll in that night. We would stay here again in a heart beat!!
This place sucks! I was charged twice for room. Broken tv. Given wrong room without balcony. Worst trip to the beach I’ve ever experienced. Never been more ready to just call it and go home!!! 😫 😫😫
Our room was clean and seemed to have been updated recently. The property is older but we didn’t mind the age since the cleanliness and view were perfect. The pool is heated so that helps to occupy children on a windy day. There are swings around the tiki bar that are a great spot to watch the sunset and take in the beautiful gulf coast. Parking is limited beachside. There are additional parking options across the street. There were some questionable people & smells around the property. We felt safe and overall were not bothered, but I could see where others might view this poorly. I usually enjoy opening the beachfront door to take in the cool air, but this kept us from doing so.
