Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Panama City Beach FL
Ranked #26 of 48 Hotels in Panama City Beach
Reviewed August 21, 2012

My wife, 4 children and I stayed at Hawthorn Suites as a quick beach stop on the way home from Disney World. We were all able to fit into one room with more room to spare. The room had two very comfortable queen sized beds and a sleeper sofa. A pack n play was also provided for my son at no extra charge. While this hotel isn't on the beach, it is within a 5 minute drive to public parking. The hotel was spectacularly clean. We couldn't have asked for more out of a last minute booking.

After reading several negative reviews, we were skeptical of our stay at Hawthorn Suites. We had a one bedroom suite with kitchen. We enjoyed staying at this place for five nights and will definitely come back. Morning breakfast was good; service is great. The location is not bad; just a few minutes to Thomas Drive for boat rentals, St Andrews State Park, Shell Island Shuttle, Pier Park and gulf beaches. We had a great time here. The smell was great in the lobby and the room. The hallway was hot but I don't mind it. This is a comfortable and welcoming place.

Rooms are small. I booked a 2-Queen suite, but the beds in our room were double beds (even though the staff said they were queen). The "dining table" depicted in the pictures and description is not so--rather it is a desk with 1 chair. The TV was situated on the wall but not very visible from one of the beds, even if it was turned that way. Besides that it was way off the beach (something I knew) but because of the room and the proximity to the beach, I will stay somewhere else next time. There is no oven--just a 2-burner stove. Take your own utensils/dishes--there were no utensils and not enough dishes for 3 people.

Room Tip: Some of the corner rooms have balcony walkouts. Ask for a Queen suite that sleeps 6 and you will get...

Rooms are small, hallways are hot with no air conditioning, breakfast is always crowded because it's in a small area.
Maid service is slow to not at all.
The only bright spot is the friendly staff at the front desk.
There are better choices for your money.

Be careful when booking online - they offer discounts that make the room NONREFUNDABLE.

Hotel is in an odd location - it sits off an exit that is a one way and it is very hard to get back to the hotel once you leave. Panama City Beach Parkway is madness at all hours of the day and night!

ONLY 1 ELEVATOR!! For 4 floors, including staff and maintenance? This is craziness. And the elevator is horribly slow. Take the stairs.

Hotel smells old. This hotel would benefit from getting rid of its carpet and going hardwoods.

Breakfast is subpar. At least they offer a hot one, though.

I'd much rather stay at the Hampton Inn or even the Sleep Inn up the street. You can do much better for your money.

Room Tip: pick another hotel

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We actually are in the process now of making some great cosmetic updates to the building. Brand new carpet and hardwood is being installed in all of our interior corridors and all of our beautiful guest rooms are in the process of getting a fresh coat of paint. We do hope to see you back to check out some of our great new updates in the near future.

broken shoer in room had to take baths
slow elevator ,when it was working
crammed 2 queen beds in king bed room
no dinig room table in kitchen ,was replaced with desk with 1 chair
t v mounted on wall were u can only see from 1 bed ,because beds were placed facing each other ,due to the fact the room was to small to put them side by side
