“Good, but Noisy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2011

I had read all the terrible reviews and was very nervous, but the hotel was clean. Just a bit dated. The only complaint I have was that it was very noisy and crowded, so if you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is not the hotel for you. If you are into the party scene, then this would be a great choice! The continental breakfast was very good! Donuts (all varieties), cereal, bagels, toast, coffee, oatmeal, juice....

I was afraid of what I would find after reading all of the reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a very CLEAN room with a frig, microwave, good-sized beachview balcony, plenty of storage space (for my two coolers, five lawnchairs, luggage, boogie boards, etc...) on-site laundry, decent continental breakfast, and THE BEST SWIMMING POOL IN PANAMA CITY BEACH HANDS DOWN with a convenient outdoor shower, bathrooms, bar and snack bar!!!! Yes, the hotel could use a makeover, but what the heck to you expect for the price?? It's a DAYS INN, people!!! Our kids range from ages 7 to 14, and WE HAD A BLAST. We will definitely be back next year - can't wait!!!

This is not a Resort for Couples. This is a family type Hotel. While the property shows lots of wear and tear. Days Inn Hotel is for the frugal, if you want a hotel where there are tons of kids and parents hogging up the Jacuzzi with no age limit. This is the place. The property is definitly worn and there are more expensive properties nearby, this is the place for folks who dont care about a spotless clean room or a upkept painted room or common areas. I went to the pool but with all the kids and my pee phobia would not allow me to get in. Did I mention the 25 kids in the Jacuzzi? Not for me and my girl but if you got kids and you are used to that lifestyle, you will fit right in. They did allow me to check in early and there is free net, which I am doing this review right now. All along the whole hotel strip there is plenty of attractions to muddle the day by. On the beach in front of the hotel is Jet Ski rentals and stuff of that nature. Cabanas are there for rent, bring a Towel and beach chair if possible or if you are going to be here a while Walmart is nearby to get supplies.
I would have given a 1/2 star more because of the room size, microwave and frig but on the same hand it is a bit grimey.

run down,moldy,you have to wait on a highly angled slope parking lot to get out of the place,congested area,the best part was leaving.the pool was supposed to be the attraction but didnt make it that far as all we wanted to do was get out .negative 5 stars..I cant see how the place can remain standing 2-3 more years..If you are there for the beach then your ok but stay on the beach as long as possible and avoid the rooms..I dont like to be negative about things but I do like to be honest..dont torture your family with this place you might catch something that wont wash off..Im going to go boil my sandals now that Im home..

Room Tip: avoid this and go west up 98 and it gets much nicer after about 10 miles or so...

Was a bit worried about the hotel due to previous reviews. Found that it was perfectly acceptable as a beach accomodation. Pool was awesome, snack/drink bar, music, movies you could watch in the pool. Beach location was perfect, down the elevator, walk down to the beach. We even left our canopy down at the beach all night and no one bothered it. Next door to restaurants,shopping. Everyone was very nice, and despite being decorated in the 80's, Everything functioned as expected, both a/c units, both microwaves, the frige, both t.v.'s We have a family of 5 and the 3 queen beds in rm 717 were fine . We had daily maid service, w/clean sheets, clean towels, and a mopping everyday. (It is on the beach, you can expect sand to be everywhere, after all we are the ones tracking it into the room, we started using the shower outside before coming up and this alleviated the sand problem for the most part.) We were pleased that there were tile floors and no carpet, we used the handtowels provided as mini-rugs by the beds. I bought spray for any bugs/critters and there were none. We checked all three mattresses and no bugs. Beach was cleaned by the guy renting chairs daily and the beach was also dragged by a tractor every morning. My girls used the volleyball net daily and the balls were available at the front desk, lots of games to play also like uno, monopoly, scrabble should it rain on your vacation.It isn't a luxury hotel, it's a basic, beachside motel and it was more than adequate for our family. Breakfast was fine, your usual donut,fruit, coffee/juice/milk, cereal kid of start to the day type thing. The covered parking was nice, no hot car to climb into. The free wi-fi worked great for my son, he used it to do college course online and didn't get bumped off anytime. It is perfect for a beach hotel, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Get on the 7th floor sand is at a minimum,view is spectacular.

I have never written a review but thought I had to in this case. This place was NOT clean. It smelled, is run down and is definitely in need of some major renovation. I don't think I'm hard to please, I can handle the basics, but I must have clean. The staff were not very friendly either. Don't waste your money on this place.
