We stopped in to Panama City beach on the way to New Orleans. Beach was pretty. We liked that the hotel was on the beach. However, the room was very expensive for what it was. I guess because it's on the beach. Old motel so had a musky smell and carpet was wet. We had fun though.

Dear Jessica S., Thank you for your stay with us at Bikini Beach. I enjoyed our brief chat at the Front Desk and hope you made it safely to New Orleans. Please accept my apologies for the wet carpet, as we are currently updating all air condition units this should be an isolated incident. Thank you so much and have... More

If you are looking for fairly reasonable prices right on the beach,then this is right for you. The rooms were a little dated, but very clean. The front desk people were friendly and I had no issues with check in order check out. The reason for the 3-star rating is due to the nasty stairwell and very old and very... More

We found the bikini beach resort to be clean, nice cold air, affordable, and safe. We absolutely loved how close it was to the beach. Although some hotels are beach front, the pools and hotel are usually still a good walk to the beach but bikini beach resort is very convenient . The pool was so clean, cool and the... More

Bikini Beach Resort is our favorite place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the view was amazing. Wether you're relaxing on the beach or having a cold drink at the tiki bar, every day is a great day at Bikini Beach

I was hesitant in giving this motel a 3 star because to be quite honest with everyone who reads these reviews it's an OLD motel. This place shouldn't even have the label "resort" in its title because it's NOT a resort. However, the reason I'm giving this place a 3 star is because the cleaning crew at this locations is...

This was our second stay here and we loved it. This old style motel is steps from the beach, clean, great employees and fun. We loved it and Highly Recommend Bikini Beach. The beautiful Panama City Beach is just a few steps from your room in this old style motel. On the first floor a rear patio door opens to... More

The room was not like the photos except the metal décor on the walls. The fixtures were outdated. The beds were hard. The bathroom was small, outdated and had a leaking broken tub fixtures. I am disappointed!

The new owners have jacked up the pricing so bad on this motel. My husband and I had been staying the past few years and the cost was reasonable but now the prices are sky high and no renovations to the property or rooms! That is not good, nor will we be staying here. We can pay and stay at... More

I booked this hotel based off tripadvisor reviews, those reviews completely failed me. I will stop short of calling this place a complete dump, but I seriously doubt many of the positive reviews are written by people who have actually stayed at this hotel. They had no record of me having paid for the reservation even though I had booked... More

This use to be a very affordable place to stay. Unfortunately, the owners sold the hotel, and the new owners could care less about good customer service and affordable prices. We will never stay here again.
