“Not again.”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

My family and I are here now. The floorsi had tos look like they need a good scrub. The refrigerator is rusted on the outside and the room is very outdated. Needs new paint and a good scrub. I can't enjoy my stay for having to clean. I wouldn't dare walk without shoes and I had to clean bathroom. Really,I'm on vacation. ...Thurs.leaving Sunday ..700+ .tower 3 ... 605

This resort is horrible, they had major construction on the outside of our building. They were working with Impact drills, saws, and hammering right outside our window the whole stay. We didn't have access to the swimming pool, hot tube, beach, or parking lot. We had to walk all the way around to do anything. Everything in our room was falling apart, nothing worked correctly. I would not recommend staying here. It is defiantly not worth the money.

We are sorry that you feel this way. We have been doing renovations to Tower 2 and will be continuing on to the other towers this off season. The building looks amazing and we hope that you understand and pardon our progress. If renting with the on-site managment, we have 24 hour mainentance and our rooms must be kept to a certain standard. We hope that you will try our property again to see our great improvements.

I used my Visa points to book this resort which uses Expedia. I did read the blue caption that said things you should know about this resort. I though paying with my point was all the charges I would incure. When I got to the resort they informed me that since I booked through a wholesaler additional fees of $140.00 would be charged. It was costing me 109.00 a night and more in extra fees that a nights stay for cleaning and security which would not be refunded. Buyer be ware. The condo was nicely layed out and great for working. The bed was very hard for my tastes. View fantastic. Rode my bike to historic Panama City and ate lunch at Big Mama's house. Great fried chicken. Had coffee in town at St Andrews coffee house and it was top notch beans.

We have been going to PCB for many years. Have stayed in a lot of places over the years but this place and Edgewater Beach Resort are our favorites. Yes, may be little dated but the large properties to walk around on and easy parking in front of your buildings are a plus. It will depend on your condo's owner, how the rooms are decorated and kept up. LBR is undergoing extensive remodel (Tower 2 currently) on the exterior. The large pools are nice and easy to access. The beach is an easy few steeps off from the elevators. There is a little snack area by the main pool during peak season and Pineapple Willies it a short walk down the beach. The main reasons you stay here are the big balconies over looking the gulf and large bed rooms even on the beach side with large windows. There are also usually various beach activites to choose from right out front on the beach. Since the rooms are all wide on the beach side, there are fewer units on each floor so usually very private. Only 14 floors with around 7 uints on a floor including 3br, 2br, 1br, or studio options.

Room Tip: Be sure to check out the units through various websites before you rent. All rooms have a great gulf...

The complex is in need of a makeover and a good cleaning. The walkway to get to the beach is falling apart and has yellow caution tape all around it. The pools were dirty and gross. Absolutely no security. We left our flip flops by the shower while we went for a night walk on the beach. They were stolen. We went to the guard at the front entrance and he said it happens all the time. One day after going to lunch we had to honk several times to wake the quard up, who was sound asleep, to lift the gate so we could get in. There were some obnoxious drunks blaring a radio on their balcony at midnight and using obscene language. The atomic door to get into the building was broken. The tile floor in the elevator was busted up. We will never be staying here again.

This was my 5th year to stay at Long beach Resort. The resort is "exactly" like the web site presents it to be. Booked through Kim's Condos. Could not have asked for any better treatment. Kim will be the one we book through every trip we make to Panama City Beach in the future. Thank you Kim. The resort is older, but well maintained. The resort staff have always been very friendly and helpful to us. We truly love Long beach Resort. As for all the negative reviews... Well, you can read between the lines the same as I can.

from the moment we arrived things were bad. we stayed here for our honeymoon, and on the way to our hotel around 10oclock....we called not one but three different numbers to confirm our reservation as well as find out where to go to check in. so in our limo coming from our wedding we had frustration!....then we get to long beah, everything is closed up and locked up. luckily the security guard told us to try going to majestic towers to check in. which we did in which we were presented with a hidden 45 dollar NON REFUNDABLE "deposit" aka fee.

anyways so we FINALLY get to our room, its an okay size and good view, we got the economy studio room. but theres only 2 towels for our 3 night stay....and i mean cmon, not one bag of instant coffee? They call this place a resort and not one bag of crap instant coffee, there was a comforter and sheets on the bed with a pack of extra sheets in the closet which is good, however the "extra" blanket felt like steel wool. I couldnt even bare to touch it to take it out of the closet!....

Lastly we were leaving on monday morning check out is at 10. so at 9am...two housecleaners banging on our door???? My husband opens the door and they ask us when we are leaving...he says ten and slams the door, we had been up late and we were very rudely woken up for no reason at all. then these two maids camp out right outside of our door for the next hour??? very rude and very unprofessional. security was also very rude when it was totally dead out at this hotel this time of year , and literally we were catching up with a friend we hadnt seen in ages who had flown out from washington, and to be rudely told to leave the pool area at no joke 12:05, the pool closes at 12. the way she made it seem was it was 2am. cmon, we were just sitting there. i get there are rules but no need to be a complete jerk about it. anyways i will never stay here again and will tell everyone i know not to stay here. it is badly ran and not worth the money. GO STAY AT DAYS INN OR HOLIDAY INN.
