The staff were friendly and helpful and even asked if we wanted a room on a lower or higher level. We ended up on the 6th floor and the view was amazing! The room was pretty basic but clean with comfortable beds, and the kitchen was stocked with basic cooking necessaries and dishes. We visited the bar which was quaint,...

The view from the third floor was perfect! Room was clean and even the window was clean to see the beautiful ocean! Our balcony was so nice and private to sit and just listen to the ocean. Even the staff was very friendly.

We love Beachside! The rooms are perfect for our family with the two separate bedrooms and Jack and Jill bathroom. They always smell so good and the beds are very comfortable.

The condo was ok. I asked on the phone & online when booking for a higher level room,when we arrived we were placed on the ground floor corner. The room was ok,kind of dated,with a bathroom that separated both rooms with no way to lock the door for the rear room. There was a stove,full sized refrigerator & I think...

You cannot beat the ocean front location. Truly sugar white sands. Nice staff. Not the fanciest place for sure, but everything you need. No breakfast provided, but fridge, microwave. Does have coffee in room. Go for a higher floor for the view.

Just far enough away from Panama City hustle-bustle and spring breakers. It was more like middle age spring breakers here, no rowdy crowds. Short drive into the city area. Beautiful beach for walking. Nice heated pool and hot tub. Rooms a bit dated, but clean and neat. Some things were not provided that would have been nice to know ahead...

We have been coming here for 9 years as snowbirds. This was by far the best year since they changed manager. Katja is a true asset to this motel, not only taking an active part in the day to day operations, walking around making sure everything is okay, but also in dealing with us snowbirds, something sorely lacking in previous...
