I called about a week before my check in date and asked for a room on a higher floor. Most reviews recommended to do so. When I showed up they put me on the second floor all the way in the corner, there was no view at all due to the trees. It was probably the room with the worst... More

I had never stayed in PCB so I took a chance...With my 13 month old and her dad for a quick weekend beach trip, this hotel fits the bill. Affordable, Not too big, great location, everything you need and nothing you don't. Our view is beautiful and the room, while a little dated (painted cabinets, older carpet), has all the... More

The hotel was really was clean but due to the lack of flooring updates and general updates it just gives the impression that it isn't clean. Great location...on the beach! They also have a nice pool. Adequate free parking, too. The breakfast left a little to be desired. Very limited items but they did have the items that we eat.... More

I definitely loved the location and most of the amenities were very accommodating but I would definitely add or change the breakfast up a little, give a variety , they definitely need to add more activities in the hotel. The staff was very friendly and always prompt. For everything that you're going to be doing at the beach the hotel... More

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!
