Great place. Friendly staff. No issues to report. Rooms were kept well. No noise complaints. Pricing was very reasonable. My wife and her family used to stay here all of the time when they took their family vacations. We would definitely come back again.

I am writing this review while the information is fresh in my head as we are still here. I brought my teenage son and two of his friends for an end of school year reward for two nights. We had a two bedroom kitchenette on the 4th floor. On the first day, I noticed a couple of roaches around the...

I stayed here for 1 night. I was hesitant from looking at online pictures, but the rooms were nicer that I expected. They were very spacious and clean! I stayed on the 2nd floor looking over the pool. The view was AMAZING. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because they didn't offer breakfast. Having paid...

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a chance to visit, if only for one night. I'm sorry that we are unable to offer breakfast, as you noted. There is a great spot across the street that offers breakfast (the Sunnyside Grill), as well as numerous other spots close by. Again, thank you for staying with us and...

Loved this hotel! Right on the beach, stayed on the 5th floor, great view from balcony. Had a two room queen room with gulf view private balcony. Comfy beds, microwave, and full size fridge. Shower was kind of small, but served its purpose. Heated pool was great. There was a hot tub too, but didn't get to try it out....

We have enjoyed our stay. Resort is located at the west end of Panama City Beach and more family oriented. We walked out of our room and directly on the beach. Nice pool and other amenities. We will come back again, however will ask for a room on 2nd floor or higher because our room on 1st floor had patio...

In a quiet part of town but perfect if it's the beach you crave. Had pool level room (efficiency suite really) just steps from sand. Loved the view and loved the sounds of the ocean. Even though hotel fully booked we felt great privacy and no crowdedness (except for hot tub late eve). Loved the live yet mellow entertainment at...

Beachside Resort was beautiful. Great view of the beach. Heated pool, hot tub and gym. Hotel staff was super friendly. I will be returning. Very pleased with my accommodations I stayed a Friday to Sunday and left for a day and when I came back due to they're being open rooms the staff upgraded without paying extra. They were personable....

The hotel was a bit "rougher" on the exterior than expected. The room was fine and pretty clean. I was a little frustrated that I couldn't do a later checkout (instead of 11, I was checking out at 12)...but overall, okay for a single night stay.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that we were unable to offer you a late check out. I will talk to our housekeeping team leaders about making sure that they are approving as many late check outs as is operationally possible.
