Beachcomber By The Sea

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was ok. Room was a bit dated and the grounds could do with a modern upgrade. The staff were really friendly, helpful and pfofessional. When i entered the lobby had a funky smell and if my payment was not already made,i would have tried to book somewhere else. The chairs on the balony were two old chairs and they did not even have a table. I would not stay here again. For that money per night, I expected more. Overall for a short stay it would be ok, but for a week or so, I would prefer something more modern.

Rooms are comfortable a little dated but clean. Great view of gulf, pool is really warm. Tv s in bedroom and living area. Got here early and got a room with no problem. Would stay again

Was greeted by Andrea and was able to check-in early! Even asked which floor I would prefer, since there was several rooms available. The room was very clean. It was perfect for my needs. Small kitchen, which was all I needed. Sitting area/Den. Beds were comfy. View was perfect! Andrea was great. Thanks so much for a great weekend. I will come back to stay again!

This hotel is in a prime location. The check in and out was very easy due to great staff who were knowledgeable and friendly. Rooms were clean and well laid out. The views were amazing.

We will definitely be staying here again! Amazing room, staff, and all around amazing facilities! Loved our room view as well.

Awesome time and facilities ! Really look forward to returning !!

The view is gorgeous if you stay 4th and above. Rooms need some deep cleaning!!! Not filthy but need a good deep cleaning like the walls doors cabinets and headboards. The spare blanket in the dresser need washed and probably kept in plastic to prevent it from being smelly. Overall it was okay

Very pleased with the Beachcomber! The pool, hot tub and tiki bar were clean and beautiful. A very short drive to the Russels Pier and Pier Park for shopping and restaurants. Check in/out were a breeze. Friendly staff and clean room. The only disappointment was there are not washer/dryers in the rooms. The room had a nice double full bed, into kitchenette and then to the large living area with sofa bed, this was the beach front end of the room. Two tvs and wifi, which wasn't the greatest, but only used it in the evenings anyway. Overall, I would definitely book here again! Great week!

Great time in Panama City Beach, Florida. Will definitely return and most likely stay at Beachcomber. We basically had our own apartment on the beach! Great price.

Awesome!!! Home away from home!! My family and I were totally satisfied!!

All of the reviews for this place said it was older but great so I booked it thinking that it was a steal. We got there and I was immediately uneasy when we pulled up to the front. The lobby was outdated and run down looking. We got up to the room and upon walking in I thought "ok maybe it's not so bad" but then I started looking around and you could clearly tell that the place needed some serious renovations. The carpet felt gross, the paint was coming off the ceiling in the bathroom, and the AC worked just enough to leave the entire room feeling muggy but livable. The street noise was unbearable the first night so we had to sleep with the AC fan on all night which froze us because the bed only had a sheet and a thin blanket on it. I'm about 95% positive the bed had bedbugs because I felt like I was being bitten by something all night. My husband actually had a bite mark on his leg when he woke up. We ended up getting 3 blankets from the front desk and we laid them on top of the bed and slept on them to avoid being bitten again. The bathroom had dirt and grime in the corners of the room and around the door stop. You could tell that they definitely only gave it a quick once over. We had made reservations for 4th of July as well but I cancelled because of the condition of the hotel. Do yourself a favor and stay a few blocks off the strip where it's more quiet. You'll end up paying a lot less money and get a cleaner room in the end. I won't be staying in this hotel again.

Very nice room. Great location. Great for kids of all ages.

This hotel was perfect for me during my stay for the Seabreeze Jazz Festival. The staff was courteous, professional and friendly. The room was spacious and clean, every room has a beachfront view and it is also in walking distance to all the nice restaurants and shopping. Will definitely be my choice whenever I go to PCB!

Nice view of the beach from the room. Room was neat and clean.Everything was wonderful.

Would stay again. Staff was excellent. Beautiful views. Very close to grocery store. Easily accessible.

excellent time , accommodations were great , its not a 5 star hotel , but for the price , I was very satisfied .

Second time staying here, and won't be the last. Location, Staff, and room was awesome!

The staff was very friendly and the room was a good value. Overall a very pleasant experience!

Like the room is perfect for families love the view and the heated pool

This hotel location and beach is good , stuff are clean . WiFi is too slow. The pool has no limit time and the people use it all the night, and make too much noise. Breakfast is very simple.

Looking down to the tiki bar and grill From 7th floor room, beachfront.
