I stayed here for one night on business travel. All of the staff I had contact with were extremely friendly and helpful. I am used to this kind of treatment in luxury hotels, but was not expecting it here. The rooms are nice, the location good, and the view outstanding.

Wow, we were impressed with the hotel. Beautifully landscaped, clean, superb customer service - we were offered free bar drinks by everyone we talked with. With our high balcony view, we witnessed magnificent sunsets. (We were warned that the pool was being worked on, but we took advantage of the heated jacuzzi instead.) Great value! We booked thru the Holiday Inn web site, which offered the same deals as the discount sites. Jan is the low season and no crowds, and beautiful weather.

Room Tip: Book a high room where you can see the beautiful colors of the gulf from a distance. Book a room tow...

All rooms have waterfront views,rates are Great this time of year.
It is winter/off season so of course that is when most major renovations get done.

My room is huge,updated and comfy with a micro,full fridge,flat screen,good wifi signal and fast speeds......
Smoking Rooms are available.

Certain staff I will not name are very friendly and hand out free drink coupons as needed :).

I am happy this is my home away from home for a couple weeks.

This resort is amazing. Friendly staff, clean rooms, and ocean-front views for every single guest. It far exceeded our expectations.

We only stayed for 2 nights, and each time we had the breakfast and dinner in the dining room. The menu was limited but the food delicious.

There is a resort fee, so budget in a little extra for that.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor away from an elevator.

I planned a spontaneous trip to Panama City Beach for my girlfriend and I. We're college students from Tallahassee. All rooms face the water with balconies and the price was too good to turn up. I personally was looking forward to hanging out on the beach, maybe some by the pool, and then hanging out on the balcony some. After we checked in, I walked out back and what do I see? An empty pool accompanied by the sound of a jack hammer. The website didn't even say that the pool was under construction and the front desk staff didn't mention it either. Our room wasn't ready right away so we went to have lunch. When we came back, we went up to the room on the 8th floor and all that could be heard was the jack hammer. I immediately booked another hotel and got out of there. I used to work in the hotel industry and don't get me wrong, it's a good property but you can't not warn guest about something as big as construction on the pool. When we called down and asked how long they would be working until they responded "Until 5 or 6." Completely unacceptable. Moral of the story... call and make sure they don't have construction going on before you book.

Thank you for sharing your experience with our resort on Trip Advisor; we’re so sorry you and your girlfriend were unable to enjoy your stay with us. We are currently enhancing our pool deck, making exciting changes to both the small pool and the main pool that we hope will greatly enhance our guest’s experience in 2013. We did post an article on our website in the Current News section, http://ow.ly/gO7xe, to tell guests about the enhancements that would be taking place during January and February. We also recently updated our website to include a pop-up announcement when you first arrive at our home page as we agree with you that it is very important to make sure that our guests see the message easily and are aware of what is going on at our resort. Our guest experience is very important to us so we have taken additional measures to make sure the message reaches everyone. The construction will be completed by the end of February so the pools will be ready for guests’ enjoyment in the spring and summer months. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that you’ll give our resort another try in the future; we hope you enjoyed your vacation in Panama City Beach.

Kindly,
Nicole S.

Stayed here for a weekend and had a great time. Located right on the beach with a great view. Rooms were clean, service was very friendly, nice lounge, and close to everything. Highly recommend anyone to stay here. You should purchase the room with the free breakfast, even if its a few dollars more...it'll be cheaper than buying breakfast. I hope I'll come back for the summer.

We spent the New Year's holiday at this Holiday Inn Resort. The staff are amazingly friendly and professional. The location is perfect, with every room overlooking the gulf. We requested an upper floor and were glad we did. Not only are the sunrise and sunset views a bit more amazing up high, but it placed us a bit away from the children's activities down below--so we could hear the gulf waves rolling in all day and all night long. Lots of folks took advantage of the heated pool, despite air temps into the 40's. Fireworks on the beach during the New Year's Eve celebration were a special treat, and everyone seemed to be out on their balconies to ring in the new year (at least at the NYC midnite hour; guess everyone was watching Times Square on TV!) Would help just a bit if the beds were somewhat softer--that would be our only complaint--they were beach-beds: very solid, but not very comfortable. Buffet breakfast was a bit pricey, but had all the basics and service was fast.
