There was a dog barking in the room next door to us. We tried to contact the front desk, but the phone in our room did not work, so I tried to call from my cellphone. I called 3 times and never got an answer. I called the main hotel # and expressed my concern and was told it would...

Let's start with the ONLY positive aspect - proximity/connection to the beach. Slept there with 3 friends and woke up in the morning with dozens of flea bites! Told the front desk and they didn't mind, manager didn't even answer my call! Might be cheap, but I strongly suggest to rethink before booking.

The Boardwalk was a heaven sent angel for my friends and I. We waited last minute to decide we wanting to take on spring break 2016! Best decision of our lives.... We had a amazing three days thanks to the boardwalk showers.

Being a last minute spring break booker options are slim and usually you get stuck with the nastiest hotels. This was suprisingly not the case here! I booked a room for me and 3 other people. The price seemed to good to be true, and some reviews seemed like it would be a nightmare. We got to our hotel and...

Stayed on a Saturday nite January 14. Reserved online for $54 for a street view room, then upgraded to a beachfront with private balcony for $16 more. Room was above average, but for the price was a great value. Two restaurants onsite were also good.

We originally booked in the Tides building, but moved to the Dunes building. Both are facing the beach, but the Dunes building had a sofa bed and coffee table. The bed was more comfortable at the Dunes, and there was a vanity in the bathroom; not at the Tides. The Dunes did not have a balcony, but a wide walkway...

Stayed over New Year's Eve in a King Gulfview room in the Dunes bldg. We had no trouble with check in, everyone was very helpful. We had two dogs with us and our room was large enough for us to set up our pet pen and still have plenty of room. We anticipated the bed being very uncomfortable based on...

Our trip was quiet as it was November and there were not too many people around. I enjoyed having a beachfront room and being able to bring my dogs along for a reasonable fee(just $45 for the whole trip). Our ground floor room in the Tides building was somewhat updated with a patio and just steps to the pool. Staff...

we visited Panama City Beach on Thanksgiving Break. The town is dead this time of the year, only couple restaurants open, everything closes at 4 PM (with sundown) but hotel was so cozy, straight on the beach. There were only couple more rooms taken so pretty much owned the place. Never seen empty beach, hotel, pool so empty before. We...
