Buccaneer Beach Motel
Ranked #17 of 31 Hotels in Panama City
Reviewed December 6, 2004

dont let the outside fool you. we were on our way to wdw the weekend of the 4th. all other hotels in the area, were booked solid. this was the only place with an opening. the front desk was extremely helpful with local places to eat, even though they had their own restaurant. we stayed on the 2nd floor. comfortable beds, full size closet, fridge, small table and chairs, the bathroom was very clean (not one hair was intertwined in the towel!). we wanted to go to their private beach, so we went to the front desk to get extra towels, they gave us fluffy oversized beach towels! what service! their beach is white sand with free chairs and a walk up bar with attentative bartenders. (you have to remember this is the BAY not the BEACH.) their pool is up high off the beach on its own deck with many tables and lounge chairs. they have a pier that extends out over the clear water where you can see all the fish and crabs! our room had its own balcony with chairs. the view was awesome! i could see all the sailboats and such over about 500-800 feet away at the dock. the view was magnificent, picture sitting on your balcony watching the sunset over the bay! down below behind the hotel was a bbq pit and a picnic table. at that area, there was access to the water and you could walk along the sandy shore. if you need photos, just email, i took alot to show my friends!

We couldn't decide whether or not to book this hotel online - so we decided to drive out there and check it out before we committed to the hotel.

The motel boasts that they have their own private beach and the pictures look amazing. They must have paid one hell of a graphic designer to doctor those pictures. The beach that looks like it stretches the expanse of the hotel is really a glorified unclean sandbox. It looks man made at best. It is not pristine, and has odd black and brown stains of some sort. It is also behind a very ancient looking pier. They also fail to mention that the motel is the only hotel there next to ( behind ) a refinery of some sort. There is no view at this motel. The buildings are old and decrepid - and they wanted to charge $179 a night for a room with 2 beds! The motel was filthy and probably not worth more than $30 bucks a night. You are better off hunting for a place directly on panama city beach -

You can save about 80 bucks and open your door to see the ocean. We're glad we didn't book that place online and get trapped into that room.
