My husband and I planned a one night stay and got a great price on a King Size bed. We had just a short walk to that beautiful beach and the pool. The room was clean, smelled lovely, cable on a fairly new Samsung TV, great wifi and right next to where we parked. We loved it! And

Grew up in Panama City in the 1950's and 1960. Sunset Inn is what the old Panama City Beach was like. We enjoyed our stays. Rooms are clean and well kept, staff is friendly and the Beach is great.. But Don't expect to find an Ice Machine however most rooms do have full sized

The website has spring rates and spring break rates. What dates are considered spring break?
Sorry But we don't know when the rates change

Stuart is on the mark. The first floor also has direct access to the pool. A child could easy walk out of the room and straight into the water. We actually stayed across the street as we were just passing through and only there for 1 night. It is quieter on that side but you have to cross the tiny street There were not hardly any cars passing through but you would still have to be mindful of the kids.

How much are cancellation fees?
"Gulf view is best of course, but condos (2BR) across the street have more room, WD, dishwasher, separate living & sleeping spaces."
"If you have a problem with stairs, tell them when you book the room! Rooms on the ground floor and with elevator access get booked first."
"Request ocean front by all means!"
"last local owned style hotel. Basic but fits the needs. Walk out your door right into the pool"
"Rooms on the beach side are awesome, Beautiful white sand & emerald water!"
