Reviewed April 13, 2014

Our stay at the Legacy was great. The room could've been updated a tad by that's a small thing. I look for cleanliness in a hotel and it was superb! The beds we're comfy as well as the pillows. Oceanfront view was fabulous and everyone was very kind. The oceanfront pool was also great! I would recommend others to give it a try. Your won't be disappointed!

We do pride ourselves on our cleanliness, our friendliness, and our views of the gulf! Thank you for taking the time to let us know that we were able to hit the mark on all three of these, and we look forward to serving you as our guest again in the future!

Stayed one night over spring break. Beautiful room and view with kitchen . Lobby small, breakfast slim( wouldn't consider this a full meal- mostly carbs). Not a lot going on, website catered to spring breakers, though no actual events going on the premises.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us! I agree, the view of the gulf from all of our rooms is beautiful! The breakfast is a bit limited, but it is complimentary with the stay. Nothing fancy, but it allows an affordable option to start the day! We do welcome Spring Breakers, but our facilities are not as such that we really can offer on site events. However, our location is great for getting out to Pier Park and the local night scene!

We appreciate your business, and I hope that you will come see us again in the near future!

This hotel was located close to a number of attractions. We loved that we had a kitchen and they provided basic dishes and pans. The gulf view from every room was amazing! We came at the end of spring break so we heard a lot of street noise as the beds are on the street side and there is no buffer for sound, the large space between the door and the frame let in all the noise. The security at the hotel was wonderful and we always felt safe. The bed was ok, but very soft. The linens and towels were all crisp and clean. Parking is tough but they have an overflow lot so we always found parking. This hotel was good for the money, and if on a tighter budget, I would stay there again. But if I could afford a little nicer place with its own parking garage and a more quiet room, I would stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: The elevators are slow and get a lot of traffic. Try to get a room away from the elevators.

You are correct! Our location is second to none with our proximity to such major attractions as Pier Park and Frank Brown Park! The beautiful view of the gulf speaks for itself.

Thank you for the kind words about our security team and staff in general. Our entire team works very hard to make sure that your experience is great from the time you pull up until the time you pull out.

Street noise was particularly high during your stay due to the Spring Break season, and I apologize for that. I can assure that it is not that way all the time! Parking on the hotel side can be a bit tight during busy times, but our overflow lot does have security cameras, and it is only for By the Sea Resorts patrons, and it is just across the street from the property.

Thank you very much for your feedback. It is greatly appreciated! We hope that you will choose us as your destination in the near future!

Stayed during last week of spring break. Great security, clean rooms and friendly staff. Wonderful location on Beach Front Road. However, I'm not sure I would stay here again due to limited parking and the beds are located on the road side. Very noisy at night with traffic. Didn't fall asleep until 2:00 am each morning due to spring break traffic. My son slept on the pull out sofa in the living area on the beach side with the door closed and heard no traffic. Hotel does need some painting touch ups on railings. Very clean though.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about your stay. I am sorry that you were unable to sleep peacefully due to the bedroom locations, but as you stated it was Spring Break. Please know that the street noise, etc is not nearly as loud during times outside of March and early April (with the exception of Thunder Beach bike rally weekends and possibly the Car Show weekend). We would love for you to come visit us again during "normal" times! Also, a tip for avoiding street noise at our properties is to request an "07" room. These are only our King Suites with sofa beds, but they do offer bedrooms that are offset from the roadside a bit more. These are limited, but we will certainly try to honor the request!

The railings are an ongoing project that should be completed by mid May. The abnormally cold end to the winter threw our time schedule off a bit unfortunately, but we are addressing that need.

Thank you for the kind words about our Security and staff in general. I will be sure to pass them along, as they do work very hard to make sure every guest has a great experience. Thank you again for your feedback, and I hope that you decide to try us again in the future!

Every time we are in Panama City we always stay at The Legacy. It is convenient to everything, the staff is always incredible, and it is always clean. This particular trip was a girl's trip in September and as always, we had a perfect stay. The balconies are amazing to drink your coffee on and listen to the ocean, the view is phenomenal, and you don't hear the traffic like you would expect. We were there for 5 days and it was very hard to leave. The front staff is so helpful and sweet; every time!!! Will continue staying here!

I had a WONDERFUL stay at legacy. I arrived at 2 am, and the staff was very polite. You would have thought it was 8 am cause they were very alert and helpful. The hotel was very clean. The beach was clean. The prices were very reasonable. The staff told us about events happening around town while we were there. Its very convenient to many many places. I felt safe, especially since im not from Flordia. This is my new vacation spot

My wife and I stayed here the weekend that kicks off Spring Break. This was our second stay here and we will stay again. The hotel is very accommodating for the price range. Nice location for shopping and food. Even with college kids coming for spring break, we weren't overly disturbed and we had no issues.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share some thoughts about your experience at Legacy! I am glad that you will help dispel the myth that Spring Break is evil! :) While it is noisier than other times of the year, for the most part, our young adults know how to handle themselves.

As has been stated many times before, our location is second to none! All rooms have a beach view, and we are centrally located to shopping and entertainment. It helps being located within a mile of Pier Park!

Thank you again, and we look forward to having you as our guest in the future!
