Reviewed yesterday NEW

This place was by far the worst I've stayed in. RUN DOWN. Mold everywhere from the bed to the phone to the shower. Multiple bugs. Old food and grime on all appliances. Not to mention how rude the staff was at check in AND check out. We didn't feel as if we could ask for help. DON'T waste your money....

I was satisfied with the hotel. It was one of the cheapest stay during the on season. There is a police officer on site so security wasn't a concern. 5he rooms are very tiny but for what I paid for it, I wasn't expecting a 5 star hotel. Everything is clean but dated. Again, it's a budget hotel and that's...

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review for our motel. The refurbishment project only lasted a few days and left the shoreline even more spacious and beautiful. Management reads every review and uses them as a way to make improvements to the motel. The staff hopes you can come back to Panama City Beach soon.

Good place if you want to stay right on the beach, can get a little rowdy. Feels a little exposed with the doors right at the parking lot but this is a beach motel :) I wish they had informed me about construction when I called to make the reservation. And I liked that if you don't want to get...
