Sugar Sands Inn and Suites
Ranked #38 of 48 Hotels in Panama City Beach
Reviewed 18 March 2014

I was just telling my friends about this place and I read the prior review..posted "Good Till The End". I would have to say Sugar Sands is by far a great family spot or for the couple get away! Amazing rooms with full kitchens and the staff at the desk are outstanding. As far as your feet getting dirty here ? You will encounter that anywhere, outside of Heaven when you have no shoes on...and walk in the streets or parking lots. Then you will make the carpet dirty also in your own room! Grab some flip flops.... then take them off and hit the white sand beach. Thank you so much again for a great stay for our Valentines Day weekend! Sandy & Tom,

Room Tip: E units are always our choice!

First look, the hostel is okay, a bit dirty cause for example you get your feets black if you walk without shoes anywhere even your room then it is a bit far from panama city. The people working here are really nice and there is a lot of young people during spring break. But at the end...... During the checkout, an awful lady checked our room, they made us pay 50$ extra for "dirty towels" and water on the groud because THEIR shower was broken.. Therefore i don't recommand it for students, even worst for family.

Out family stayed here at the end of February and the view and access to the beach is amazing. We got a great deal for the our stay but I'm not sure I would come back. The place was a little dated and run down. The room was not as clean as I like it but for the view and value I can't complain. The heated pool was really nice and we did enjoy our stay. The staff was friendly. I'm glad I paid winter rates as I wouldn't have paid any more for the room as it was run down and very dated

It was a great vacation and we have a wonderful time. The staff at Sugar Sands was friendly, helpful and very nice people. The room and view were awesome. My wife got the view and room she dream about for this trip. Location was great as you were out of the busy area but close enough to be there in minutes. We are already planning our trip in September 2014.

Room Tip: Higher floors have the best view. Also use the steps it will get you loose for the ocean and pool.

We booked a last minute stay as Sugar Sands was transitioning from Winter to Spring (end of February to beginning of March). There were a lot of seasonal repairs (paint, etc) going on, but none of the workers were intrusive. Both shifts of Front Office staff were pleasant and agreeable. No issues at all with our reservation and they were even willing to accommodate us by offering us a room with a different floorplan than the room we initially booked without having seen the property.

It reminded of us of the old mom and pop hotels in Panama City Beach before the high rises became commonplace. It's by no means a high dollar resort, but the rooms are clean, you have a kitchenette and, during the winter months, their pool is heated.

We're happy to have another option for hotel stays when we're down in the area. We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: There are a pair of buildings at this property. We stayed in the East Tower which is slightly closer...

we only stayed 1 night but its was a good one, good room, good beds, clean, with complete kitchen for"snowbirds", we had groundfloor room few steps from the gorgeous beach, used the heated pool with its jacuzzi twice, its was unusually cold on this 31 dec. so the heated water felt great. well equipped patio, could imagine staying here as a "snowbird" . beach is simply fantastic, endless and wide -

Room Tip: good rates - worth staying

First let me say that's it's the best end of the beach to be on! Very quite. Not much has changed at The Sands but it still has the same great service and staff it has always had. The ocean view rooms are the best but the units across the street do overlook a pond and feeding ducks and turtles can become amusing.
