Reviewed December 17, 2012

Out of every hotel I have ever stayed in, this has to be the best. From the moment I walked in the door, I have felt important. Monet, at the front desk was so sweet to us when we checked in, and more than once, I asked directions from Steven Laramore and he was so happy to help. Kim in the restaurant was happy to make me a drink when the bar was closed, and Another manager Dave Tyring bought me a drink at the Sunset bar after all that. This is such an awesome place to stay! And I would be remiss to leave out the awesome bartender Robert. He made me fee at home in the sunset bar. If you get a chance to visit Panama City Beach, you want to stay at the Holiday Inn Resort.. I know I'll be back..

We enjoyed our stay here in December. Going off-season has its advantages and disadvantages both at the hotel and in Panama City Beach in general. First the perks, No crowds, felt at times like we were the only people there. We took full advantage of the empty spacious outdoor pool, which was heated and a perfect temp. We swam around 11am or so. There was live music playing to no one and the tiki bar was open by the beach. There is a nice little fitness center as well equipped with suana and steam room. The room was clean, amazing view from balcony, fridge, microwave, 37inch flat screen. The bed was comfortable and shower was large with good water pressure. For the drawbacks, in December staffing seems to be at bare minimum. There was only one person working the check in area so that took 10-15 minutes longer than it should of. While they keep a courtesy shuttle readily available, parking is across the street via tunnel. The tiki bar was closed by 5pm when we actualy wanted to enjoy a drink by the water. Had to go to the upstairs lounge which did have nice balcony area. In the town itself many restaurants and attractions were closed for the season, leaving limited options at times. Overall I would come back to the Holiday Inn based on value, comfort, friendly staff, and amenities.

Room Tip: the upper level harbors the best views

It is a great location and the view is beautiful. But, no bellman so I carried two suitcase and computer bag from inconvenient parking. No valet parking. No room service except limited dinner menu. Refrigerator,microwave and coffee maker so will make grocery store run. Well suited for budget friendly family trip. Not so great for business traveler. Also, be aware the price quoted does not include $20 per day resort fee.

We stayed three nights and couldn't be happier. 14th floor view was great. No bad rooms, all have gulf view. Heated pool and hot tubs were nice. Barb from the restaurant gave 5 star service at the tiki hut bar. Overall we were very happy and plan to return. The only downside would be the whole wall of mirrors that you can't escape, although by the 3rd day you notice them much less.

Had a two night stay with the family before Thanksgiving. Kids suite was perfect with two bunk beds and all rooms have ocean front views. Great service at the resort for anything we needed. Unfortunate that kids activities don't run everyday during the off season. Heated and hot tubs were great but the kids pool area of course was freezing! Had a nice time and will likely return!

Thank you for sharing your experience with our resort on Trip Advisor! We’re so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay with us! We do offer kids’ activities 5 days / week during the late fall season but the full 7 day week schedule only takes place from mid-April to around mid-October. It’s great to hear that you enjoyed our Family Rooms; this room type was a new option for our guests this year and we’re so glad to see that so many families are enjoying the extra bunk beds! Thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn Resort; we hope to have you as our guests again soon!

The location is incredible and you can't beat the sunset views from any of the Gulf-front rooms. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, especially for extended stays. There is a refrigerator and a microwave in every room- which comes in Handy becausethe dining options are less than premiere at the hotel. The restaurant is overpriced; the poolside grill is basic bowling-alley fare. The tiki bar is the only counter worth spending your money at. I suggest taking advantage of the expansive dining scene instead.
The ambiance is pretty nice, though there was a funky vinegar-like smell in the tiki area. I recommend using some winded and a clean rag as opposed to what is being used to clean now.
In the off season it was relaxing and enjoyable, though a bit full. I still prefer that over the Spring Break insanity that must occur.
It's a great place if you love the beach or want a romantic weekend stay. The pool and two hot tubs are mostly clean and comfortable. I imagine there are very few options in PCB better than the Holiday Inn Resort.

Thank you for sharing your experience with our resort on Trip Advisor! We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! All of our rooms face the Gulf of Mexico and have great views that look over the Tropical Pool Deck out to the sugar white sandy beaches and emerald green waters (no parking lot views here) the higher up you are in the resort the more amazing your beach view will be, but all of our rooms offer great views. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts on our restaurants and menus; we are actually in the process of reworking all of our menus for the upcoming season to offer our guests more options and a better value. We’re so glad you enjoyed the pool and hot tubs during your stay! Thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn Resort; we hope to have you as our guests again soon!
