last minute no choice

We typically stay at nice places and this was not. Ok for dad to take 2 small boys fishing for a weekend. But I could not stand that room for more than 2 days. Small room and a bathroom the size of a cruise RR. The room was not very clean and looked like a hotel designed for kids on spring break. Never again. Good location terrible room.

weekend at the beach

Room was used mainly for sleeping and bathing. Good beach access but very slow elevators. Parking was far away from room and congested because of hauling truck traffic to & from convention hall.

Nice beach vacation

I was a little apprehensive to rent here when I read some of the reviews but actually was very pleasantly surprised. The room was nice and clean, lots of hot water pressure in shower, and daily maid service with fresh towels. I liked the boardwalk around the hotel and the Under the Boardwalk tiki bar which had surprisingly good food and great service (Ari u rock!). The beaches are beautiful and there were lots of activities for the 4th of July weekend including great fireworks right on the beach.

old resort in a great location.

Its walking distance to the beach bars and late night snacks. Half the rooms are facing the beach and probably has a great view.

Stay at the hotel, poolside, beaches, and restaurants...no need to drive anywhere and experience the million things to do in P.C. Beach...plenty to do and have a great time with right there at the resort. Go to the beach and read, walk, take in the great view of the gulf and beach, and just have a great time right there at Boardwalk Resort.

Wont stay there again

We will never stay here again, took over an hour to check in, they did not clean our room,did not leave us coffee or cups the following day, the pool was shut down twice for an extended period of time, they charged us an additional fee after me calling and confirming this would be the total price.....the elevator broke down so we had to use the stairs...horrible stay
