Origin At Seahaven

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My family and I have stayed here multiple of times throughout the years. Every year we come back something has changed. For one, you no longer get your room cleaned. They only clean in between stays. Another thing I was very disappointed in was when I asked for a roll of toilet paper because our room was out the front desk lady said “we don’t supply that”. I didn’t know I was supposed to supply my own toilet paper. When I got there, there was a couple of rolls there for us so how do you not supply it? They have a sign up for “complimentary towel exchange”. Although we have to bring all of our dirty towels down to trade them out. The sign is up like they’re doing us a favor. We come to Panama City Beach every year and I believe this is our last time staying at Origins. I will be staying somewhere who actually cleans your room and gives you towels and toilet paper when needed.

Great Hotel, conveniently located across the street from the beach and Sharky's. Beds are super soft and comfortable. Staff seemed annoyed throughout shifts, not many smiles but I can imagine obnoxious tourists can get tiresome, Smile guys! it gets better! Not a fan of the "cleaning fee" never received cleaning service or even had towels replenished throughout our stay. STILL I loved the hotel and will absolutely be back again.

Unit smelled like wet dog. Furniture falling apart. Beds very uncomfortable. Very humid and warm in unit as even with thermostat turned to 58, unit still was not cooling.

Close to beach, but most staff didn't speak English or was none around....

The location of the hotel was good although the description was misleading, it said "This 3.5-star condo property has 329 guestrooms and offers a private beach". The hotel is across the street from the beach and there is a locked entry door which your room key opens, but there is NO private beach. Our room had stains on the carpet, the kitchen was not furnished with towels, cloths or scrubbing sponges, the ice maker hardly made any ice and the freezer didn't freeze anything completely. There was some silverware and a knife set but no other cooking utensils and no frying pan. You check in across the street instead of in the hotel. The bright spot in our stays was that are room, unit 404 is very convenient to the pool which is located on level 4.

Great location, very nice condo, extremely clean, friendly staff. Quiet rooms, nice pool area, would Definitely stay here again & would Definitely recommend this place to others to stay for vacation. Close to Pier Park & very nice beach area. On site restaurant across the street with Excellent food.

The hotel was very nice and it was right in front the beach ! we had acces to a private beach with was very peaceful

Stayed 1 night. Perfect stay for 1 night. Staff friendly and nice hotel and pool area.

check in at origins was easy,the staff were very friendly and very informative,elevators were quick and smooth got us up to our room in very short time which is a big plus,only problem we had is our ac stopped working 2nd day but front desk had maintenance up to our room in a reasonable time after checking it out it was determined that ac needed some repairs we called desk and ask to moved to another condo which they did quickly had no more problems will defiantely stay there again

Clean room very comfortable bed will stay again great view of the gulf check was quick and easy and check out was even better a lil pricey tho

I have stayed at this property many times. It's never been a spectacular stay but descent. This time however, it was just unacceptable. I woke up one morning to go to my car, which was park under a balcony, had thrown up all over my hood. Talking to a supervisor at Sea Haven was like talking to a brick wall. I finally was able to get Origins maintenance crew to wash off my car (super nice people). I left a message for the supervisor again to let her know that there was bed bugs in room 427. No call back. This room has bed bugs without a doubt. I have over 30 bites all over my body. I stayed here for spring break with a friend and her daughter (April 2017). She called me last night and said they too have bites all over their bodies. It just wasn't worth the "good deal" for the hassle. I'm terrified now of what I might be going through with this bed bug issue. I tried to take every measure to ensure I didn't bring them into my house but only time will tell.

This has to be the worst hotel we have ever stayed at. Except for Becky, the staff was totally rude, especially Chris. No shower certain, no cleaning service, no towels, it was fifth especially the floor! No one even picked up the garbage bag. No coffee maker, nothing to wash the dishes with. The shower head was so dry rotten water dropped out everywhere when trying to shower. The tv was the box type that you couldn't hook anything to. The hot tub didn't work. The elevator was broken. I could go on and on. It was terrible!

Nice staff but overpriced for the small room they provide. Elevators weren't finished with, and toilets wouldn't be barely flush. Overall the stay was ok. Be aware of "damage fee" that you get charged per night regardless if you damage anything or not. This fee tacked on another $100 to my stay AND it's non refundable! Smh!

Gorgeous. Comfortable. Non-inteusive! Great location. Wonderfully comfortable bed. Easy parking. Three elevator locations for ease of access.

very good experiences, a great getaway We enjoyed everything about complex; but I wished you would share all of the expenses with your cutomers before you book the stay.

It was a nice place, but busy area. If you don't mind the night crowd, it's a great place to stay! Will definitely go back!

The floors above us had flood a few days before we got there, so they had big fans in the rooms and hall ways with a big vent machine. It smelled bad in the hall ways.

we got there at 1230 or so Saturday and the lady up front savannah was her name I think told us the room wasn't quite ready if we wanted to go to the beach or pool she would get a rush on it and she would call us when it was ready. So at 430 I go back to the front desk and its still not ready I told them this was crap and she called security on me and I never cussed her or threatened her. So I leave and we give them about 20 more minutes and my wife goes back up there and the lady at the front is terribly rude to her. I was supposed to have a oceanview room and she was telling me how nice it was when I first got there. But I guess since we were upset for waiting so long she thought it would be funny to put us in a smaller room in the back with no view and that's what she did......absolutely the worst place I've ever stayed......bar none.....we should a just went to the motel 6....it woulda been cheaper and I garuntee you the people would have been nicer. she told my wife if we had kids we wouldn't be blowing money for that expensive a room for one night....lol.....we have 3. she is young and stupid and is not representing this business well. we will not be back there and we will tell everyone we know to stay away from this place.

It was comfortable and peaceful it was so vacation from home. I'll looking forward to do it again.

Dear guest, Im so to hear that you were upset with your stay. With a condo stay you dont get daily service as you would with a hotel stay. We also dont provide any toilet paper after you use was supplied in the room when you checked in. Since we dont do daily service this is why you must come down to the front desk to exchange towels, we do this for guest as a courtesy for the guest staying with us. I hope you will change your mind and give us another chance to provide you with the best vacation possible. Warm wishes Seahaven Beach Resorts

Dear Valued Guest, I will be sure to pass your concerns of the room condition to your housekeeping staff so we can get those corrected. We do consider the beach a private beach area right across the street from the condos. The only guest that can access the beach from the gate is our guest at Origin.
