Loved it. Exactly what I expected, great staff, reasonably priced. I got to choose what floor I wanted to stay in. Very close to shopping and restaurants. They have outdoor grills so we could bbq our food. Very roomy, nice beds, full size refrigerator. I would definitely recommend it. I will return to this resort. My family had an amazing...

Stopped here for one night on our way back to SW Florida. Just wanted a nice space to spend the night and the Beachside came through. Nice room and service. Great location along the beach (and a great margarita at the bar sealed the deal). We'll be back next time we're in the area.

I decided to try Beachside Resort to save some money on an impromptu long weekend getaway. If you have visited the 30A area before, you know Seaside and Rosemary are expensive. Beachside is about a 20 minute drive to Seaside, depending on traffic. Or, go the other direction about the same distance to Pier Park in Panama City. It's a...

My stay at the hotel was really good. I really recommend it. It is in a quiet area. The only thing I didn't like was the size of the beds, they looked like too small to be queen. The staff is really friendly. The remote for TV. was not working and the light bulb from the balcony was out, but...

This is my 3rd time staying at this hotel and I just love it. I love the location, its still on Front Beach Rd but it's away from the high populated areas of Panama City Beach. All rooms are beach facing, so no bad view. The rooms are clean, good size and I love they all come with a fridge...

We checked in and super excited for our stay. We booked a two room queen room. First what we loved. We had a room facing the gulf and it was a beautiful view.

Loved it! We even decided to stay an extra night, just two nights wasn't enough. Really nice people. Loved the private balcony and beach. And my kids 8 & 6 loved it to! Everything was very clean and didn't have to worry about anything. They even let us pick what floor we were on.

This is a nice hotel in an area with no high-rises. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The place is old but clean and well maintained. The beach directly in front of the hotel seemed less crowded than surrounding areas even on a holiday weekend.
