Our family uses this motel every time we visit Panama City, Florida. The housekeeping staff were outstanding! Also great to see the improvements that have been made. We will continue to use this motel.

To start off we booked our room online on Seahaven's website.
When we did this they took out our money immediately. We printed the confirmation for safety's sake and didn't realize that the date wasn't shown on this "confirmation". Well, after a couple of days I never received any email confirmation.

We decided to call the Motel on the way down to Florida. Talked with the lady and she advised there was no reservation for us. We gave her our confirmation number and she said that confirmation was for that day, the same day I booked the room they say I was supposed to come in that night at 8:52pm.
She also advised me that she couldn't refund my money and didn't have any rooms for me.
Finally after paying her for another nights stay she was somehow able to find us one little bitty room that night. To be able to somehow save our vaction, well at least to keep me and the children who were in the car from crying in disappointment.

Well, We finally made it there and it was the nastiest littliest room ever.
I was given a room in the far back corner with no light and no guests except the tenants who seemed to live there and acted as if we bothered them when we needed to walk by to get to our nasty, scary broken down room in which we had by this time paid $270 dollars for.
This truly was the worst trip ever. We decided to go home within one day because of the drama and pure filth of this motel "hell."
I have pictures if you would like to see them.
I would advise if you want to enjoy a family vacation do not, do not book with these people.
Sadiest place ever...

This Is A Decent Motel If You're On A Budget. Its On The Beach. We Had A 3 Room Suite With A Kitchenette. It Was A Very Comfortable Atmosphere. The Only Problem I Had Was, My Son Cut His Foot In The Pool On The Bottom Step And The Receptionist Only Said I'll Tell The Maintenance Guy. Nobody Ever Followed Up To See How My Sons Foot Was Doing.

The rooms were small along with the bathroom. The mattresses were older. On the upside it's right on the beach and in the center of everything. Very friendly on budget to spend money on other things. The tv got lots of good channels too.

We booked a one double bed room online. We saw that it was right in the beach and we didn't have to worry about parking. When we arrived, we found that the bathroom faucet in the tub was severely broken. The water squirt all over the bathroom. When we went to complain they sent a maintenance guy up right away and tried fixing the problem. He was very honest and told us it wouldn't be fixed till tomorrow. He went down to talk to the manager and little did we know, we were moved to a 3 bedroom 2 bath room (with beach view) downstairs. The whole staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy. For the money, it was not a too terrible place to stay. The rooms were as clean as you can expect from being a spring break party place for under 25 year olds. We didn't see one bug the whole stay. The pool and beach was great. We would definitely stay there again.

Check your reviews on this place before you stay here. YUCK! We arrived and the keys didn't work. The airconditioner sounded more like an airplane--- it shook the entire window sill. Mold and mildew everywhere- including all down the side of the refrigerator, bathtub, and windows. It smelled of mildew, there was sand all over (not visible, but if you didn't wear shoes in your room the sand was all over your feet). Our toilet didn't work unless you shook the handle after every flush. Both my husband and I got sore throats while there, thinking that maybe we were just coming down with a cold or something, we didn't blame the room- UNTIL--- we left and checked into a new place. Within 4 hours of our new checkin- our sore throats were gone and both of us felt great again. Judge for yourself, but this hotel isn't worth a penny to stay at.
