Beachcomber By The Sea

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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 The lobby was outdated and run down looking.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.

Great stay except some hotel staff kept watching our every move?? Strange! Loved the area!

We stay here often when visiting family in Panama City Beach and Find this place to be an excellent choice. Friendly staff..... Great heated pool.... Great hot tub... Comfortable rooms. Plenty of hot water for showering. Kitchen great for light meals. Easy access to beach.

Great location, good stay,goor value for money, will recommend

This hotel is by far the best value in PCB! The staff is amazingly nice and helpful. The rooms are clean and all have a gulf view. They don't have free WiFi, but I wasn't there to work anyway. I will stay there again for sure! I just got home yesterday from a girls weekend, and my husband and I are already planning a trip back in April.

The stay was wonderful. The view from our balcony speechless. Looking forward to going back. Stayed two weeks and it wasn't long enough.

3rd yr we stayed at beachcomber, always great stay.

This hotel is well worth the money. The room had a good view of the beach with a balcony. The continental breakfast was basic but clean and good.

Wonderful family trip with our 7 and 6 year old kids. We enjoyed the pool, quietness, neatness, breakfast and the king suite room with full kitchen. It is definitely comparable to 5 star hotel at this beach per services and/or even better per cost. We were indeed blessed being at Beachcomber. Awesome place!
