We got in town early and although check in wasn’t until 4 pm he facilitated us at 5 am which was very considerate. Although, didn’t like the very limited space for parking, and also the tv remote didn’t work which isn’t such a big deal, but truly it is a decision maker.

I arrived at 8pm and couldnt check in because they said room wasnt available yet. Told me they would call once housekeeping cleans the room. Came back at 10pm and still wasnt ready. This is unreasonable. Just cancelled and went to another hotel.

Great location, however our room was never serviced, breakfast is very basic and it is NOT located on the beach - like advertised. It is across the road. The pool is across the street and you have to purchase bracelets ($20/adult) to enter. Resting at night is not possible during this time of year, since there are people loudly walking up and down those halls till about 4 am - not the hotel's fault, just informing you.

Although they forgot to clean our room two days in a row and they ran out of towels, they were all very nice

Bath tub was clogged, didn’t get room service, Room was stinking.

Rooms were adequate, though I did think the complimentary breakfast was disappointing

The Hotel was clean but it was very old and needs to be updated. The staff was very friendly and showed me where I could plug in my electric car charger for My EV car.

The breakfast is truly grab and go. Nothing special about the breakfast except the coffee was good.

It was great for the price. Really close to the beach.

It would’ve been nice to have a larger TV when stuck inside due to being tired of shopping.

Great hotel and location not bad for last minute!!

Good room for the price on a summer Saturday. You just have to dodge traffic a little when walking over to the pool & beach due to construction on both sides (no sidewalk). Overall a great place to stay though.

Just across the road from the beach. Great place to stay! Also within walking distance from surf style. The beach in front of the hotel wasn’t busy compared to the surrounding areas.

To start with Front Beach Road is all torn-up and a nightmare. This isn't at any fault to the hotel and there for most of the week and I never saw them actually working on it, but A LOT of setting equipment not being used. There are no sidewalks to walk on either side of the street. When you first go into the room, you are hit with a huge musty smell. Once you stay a while, you figure out the air just makes a moist, damp stay. The pool is actually located across the street at the bar. Our tv had a big line down the side of the screen too. The staff was very friendly, room was clean and breakfast was enough. It looks like an older hotel and they have attempted to renovate it at some point. I would stay again, but you get what you pay for!

Website shows SOME hotel next to a body of water. The name even says it is "by the sea"! When we got there we found out the REAL hotel is ACROSS THE EXTREMELY BUSY HIGHWAY quite some distance to the pool and the ocean on the OTHER SIDE of the road. Both my wife and I are disabled. We specified on our reservation we needed a handicap room. Upon check-in we had to beg for an upgrade to a handicap room. We got THE ONLY ONE they have, and it is at the far end of the hotel from the elevator! What genius designed that? I had to stop 4 times from the car to the room and catch my breath, before I could go on. It was like a marathon for a disabled person! Clean and quiet hotel. Found out the day we left we could have driven across the road and parked near the pool, but that tidbit of info did us no good as we were leaving when we were told this. 3 night stay in Panama City and I never left the room because it was so far to walk from THE handicap room to the parking area. I am getting old and feeble, and this may have been my last stay in Panama City. Booked a month ahead of time thru Orbitz and paid for 2 of the 3 nights when booked. Charged again for all 3 nights when checking out. It was a nightmare to get them to understand over the phone I had been charged for 5 nights instead of just 3. It took Orbitz calling them to get the charges corrected. Real nice people when checking in, but bill correction over the phone at 3AM after getting home was totally different.

Reasonble price. Very convenient . Beach was across the street . Very close to restaurants and stores . Very helpful staff. Parking was a big plus.
