This is a motel, not a "Resort", as the name would imply.
We booked a room because it is away from the crowded section of Panama City Beach.
Amenities are few here, basically a pool and hot tub. No fitness centre, no bar, no restaurant. If you are looking for a resort, look elsewhere. If you just need a room, this place is ok.
We also, like another reviewer, had a two bedroom with only tv in one room. Our room was also moist and bed moist. Did i mention "moist"? Rooms were recently remodeled and I notice poor workmanship in this. There was molding that was cut awkwardly and not much in the way of decoration.
Hotel grounds looked old style, and there was painting happening in the areas of people's rooms. A little noisy and messy.
The beach is white and beautiful. Water is beautiful too.
Staff was very nice at desk. Front desk person, Jody, was very friendly and helpful! She knows about the area, and when we asked, she had great recommendation on where to eat and things of fun for kids.
Other staff (housekeeping) was very nice also.
As in past review, we too saw manager being discipline of front desk one day. I do not know how you can work on a beautiful beach, and seem so angry. The workers were always friendly and helpful. Not sure why they put up with this from manager.
I really think for the price, this motel needs more amenities. You must drive a few miles just to find food. We do not drink alcohol, so bar was not issue for us.
I suggest look around and compare before booking.
