We had only one night to spend in Panama City Beach and didn't want to spend a fortune. Beachcomber by the Sea filled the bill. It is directly on the beach and has a nice pool. Our room had 2 full size beds and a sofa sleeper- mama and dad each got a bed and the kids got the sleeper.... More

The only good thing about this hotel was the friendliness. It was noisy, the A/C was on the blitz, only the shower worked, the cleaning was poor, and the spare blanket smelled like human urine. We cut our stay short and will not be returning. Oh, and the doorknobs needed fixed as well!

The rooms were expensive and the maid service was not best as they did not vacuum or empty the trash. The front desk workers were nice and helpful and the breakfast was descent. The views from the room was beautiful with easy access to the beach and pool area. The parking was not the best due to having to park... More

My husband and I lived in PC Beach for 10 years and go back occasionally to visit with friends and enjoy the gorgeous gulf. We decided to stay at the Beachcomber because it is convenient. Pros: right on the water, close to shopping, close to our friends, fewer travelers to contend with, etc.. This is truly a mid-level hotel. I... More

...the Beachcomber is a good choice. The rooms have been recently updated and every room has a balcony overlooking the Gulf. A typical continental breakfast is included...cereal, bagels, muffins, yogurt etc. and served in a little room overlooking the pool and Gulf. We were just passing through and the Beachcomber provided a comfortable night's stay after a 6 hour drive!

This was our first time staying here and were satisfied with the accommodations. Not sure why people say you have to pay to park across the street but that is NOT the case. Saw no bugs anywhere, beds were decent, bathroom could have been a bit better but it served it's purpose. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful.... More

We normally stay at the Legacy by the Sea but when I tried to book it online, Orbitz said it was full up on that weekend (Mother's Day). So, I started looking and found The Beachcomber by the Sea just a block or so down from the Legacy. The reviews I read on line seemed to be pretty favorable so... More
