Great location! Room was spacious and very clean. Love the balcony and view of the beach. Not a huge high-rise unit which is good, no long waits for an elevator. Kitchen was adequate for our needs. Would stay here again for sure!

The location was nice. The beach and area were clean and quiet.

In a good location for shopping and eating. Hotel with beach views. Housekeeping needs to be better with cleaning rooms.

We loved how we could spend time at the pool and beach, back and forth, with three little kids and it wasn’t too much to juggle because of the proximity. The location is great. Not right in front of pier park and the busy traffic that can have, but close enough we even walked it one day. Breakfast was your basic free continental breakfast- two cereals, yogurt, juices, three muffins and then fruit (apples and oranges). We’d go back 100%. The room size is great. All entrances into rooms face the road, and all rooms have a balcony facing the gulf. The pool was unbelievably warm and hot tub even warmer. The sand is great and soft. We wished we could have had access to a vacuum to vacuum up some sand, but housekeeping did come in twice on our five night stay and make beds, vacuum, etc. also, could use some caulk in the bathroom sink, fresh paint on the building would make it more updated but it definitely served its purpose and us well.

Awesome view from balcony. Kitchen was nice, beds were comfortable but the king size pillows were too big for the beds. Friendly staff at check in and out!

Great large rooms especially if you have kids! Love that there was a separate sitting area from the bedroom area! The sofa was a pull out bed and had its own tv. It would be perfect for teens who would want to bring a gaming system and there is a door that separates it from the sleeping area! Teens could game at night while adults could sleep

The hotel is a great location, right on the beach, close to Pier Park and other attractions. I didn't use the pool, but it looked nice and had a hot tub and outside bar (bar wasn't open in 1st weekend in March). The hotel itself is dated and could use a facelift. Being so close to the salt air, rust, etc. Is to be expected on appliances- it didn't bother me, but it's not pretty either. When I first got in the room, it smelled like bleach, so I knew the room was cleaned! I turned on the bathroom fan and kept the back door open for a few minutes and the smell went away. I liked having a "living room" and a "bedroom" - all rooms are oceanfront with balcony, which was nice. All and all, I'd stay here again and would recommend this place (to those that aren't looking for super fancy)!

I booked a two double bed suit that has separate living room and sleeping room but I was given a single room with one king bed at check-in. No breakfast as advertised- only coffee. It does have great ocean view, swimming pool even though I did not have time to use it.

Good location. Nice beach. Very nice pool and hot tub area. Room was clean and houskeeping did a good job. I wish they had two bedroom rooms. Next year we will have some company and will need more space. We had a great time and met nice people that stay every year.

Nice hotel right on the west end of the beach. Close to many attractions and Pier Park. Clean rooms. View was spectacular from the balcony overlooking the ocean. You won’t regret!

The hotel has a ideal location close to shops and numerous restaurants

had a great time, will stay there again anytime we/I go to Panama City

Better than we expected. A little outdated facility, but clean. We would stay here again.

Beautiful views, spacious. A little older and room had an odor but didn’t bother since we didn’t spend much time in room.

Excellent hospitality and service. I highly recommend Beachcomer!!

Beautiful view and a clean, comfortable room. I could not have asked for a bette place for my mini vacation. Check-in was quick and easy and the people were friendly.

We were so excited about our trip that we decided to drive down the night before and just wait until our check in time. When we arrived the next morning we were so tired and just ready to get some sleep that we decided to see if they would let us check in early for a fee if necessary. The woman behind the desk was so understanding and nice, they let us check in early with no fees whatsoever! The rooms were nice enough for the price we paid. The continental breakfast is exactly what you would think it is so we knew to bring us food to cook in the morning. When we found they had some pans missing that we needed, i asked the front desk and we received what we asked for with without the slightest difficulty. Our son loved the pool and we enjoyed the beautiful beach that is right behind the hotel. I can say this was the best choice we have made for this weekend getaway and because of the hotel staff, are definitely coming back! I already told other family members. We are planning a big family vacation next summer and this will be our choice of stay. Thank you for making our stay a wonderful one!

Great staff and price. Quiet rooms and perfect location.

Awesome experience. Great location and room was awesome too. Would definitely stay there again. Was exactly what I was looking for in my mini vacation

We sincerely apologize that you weren't given the proper room type. We do have breakfast every morning in the breakfast room until 10am. The breakfast room is detached from the lobby and is in the walkway to the pool. Thank you for staying with us.
