Room was clean. This is an older place, was there when I was a kid, but has been well maintained. Room had been updated but plumbing fixtures (shower head, sprinkler system etc.) had not been which made all the nice paint etc. not look as good with tarnished shower head and arm. It was quiet since it was December. This...

I wasn't expecting too much based on the ranking and reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. It is not always easy to find a great hotel when you travel with a pet but I was impressed. You could not even tell that dogs were allowed in this hotel. The furnishings were appropriate for families traveling with kids. Our condo had...

We have been there before, and the place was just great. The weather was a little colder than we had anticipated, but we enjoyed the time that we had together. Anything that we asked for, was brought to us with courtesy and friendliness. Thanks.

This is our fourth stay with Sandpiper Beacon. As always the staff is courteous and accommodating. Clean rooms. Homey feel. One of the few left that aren't the huge resort type places. I hope they never sell out to those. I would recommend to anyone asking for a good place to stay in PCB.

It was my first time ever going to florida and this was the perfect resort for us. Were there some small problems? Yes, but that happens no matter where you stay. Overall, great place. Definitely will be coming back!

This hotel has a lot to offer. There are plenty of activities, but it was also a relaxing setting with great views of the Gulf. It is conveniently located for restaurants, shopping, and attractions if you chose to leave the resort.
