“Amazing Property in Panama City Beach”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Very nice accommodation in Panama City Beach. Beautiful room as a full condo suite. VERY VERY clean and attractive. the balcony facing the ocean was mint. could see anything
the full kitchen was amazing.
Good rate and great views of the Gulf. Full kitchen I made use of to save money. Nice balcony and seating area with the Gulf view. Two Tvs and a door between living and sleeping areas. The breakfast is prepackaged bagels and buns juice, coffee, tea, and yogurt, I was immediately impressed upon entering our room. It was well decorated and spacious. The bedding was very comfortable and the view was great
It also had a second television in this area. There was good access to the beach. The pool and hot tub were very nice, as well. There were ample parking spaces during our stay, with overflow spaces across the street.
I would recommend this for anyone. singles, couples and family
stayed here as a solo in November 2013
would recommend i personally would stay again

Room Tip: Get room on 5th floor so nice

We stopped here on our way south. Good rate and great views of the Gulf. Full kitchen we made use of to save money. Nice balcony and seating area with the Gulf view. Two Tvs and a door between living and sleeping areas. The breakfast is prepackaged bagels and buns juice, coffee, tea, and yogurt. Pool was clean and refreshing.

We needed a place for one night, and they offered competitive rates... The room was smelly, not clean, the bathroom was so awful that we decided not to use the shower. The carpet was funky and probably the source of the smell. I have never been so relieved to leave a place. We arrived at 9pm and if we didn't have to leave by 4am again, i would have gone to another hotel. The only reason they can charge (or think they can) is because of the beach right out front.

This is a well maintained older hotel. I liked the ocean view from every room and the kitchens in suite. The pool was great with wide steps that my little one could play on. They have great beach access. There was sailboat and bannana boat rentals too. The hotel isn't too far from the pier. I took a star away because the continental breakfast was very skimpy and the beds were small. Great vacation for the price.

My husband and I spent 6 nights at The Beachcomber in September to celebrate my birthday this year. We have come to Panama City Beach numerous times but this was our first time at this hotel. I was immediately impressed upon entering our room. It was well decorated and spacious. The bedding was very comfortable and the view was great, even from the 3rd floor. We usually take advantage of the breakfast offered by the hotels, but for a change, decided to enjoy the view from the balcony with bacon, eggs and toast. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed to cook and serve your food as well. We liked the layout of the suite, which had the bedroom separated from the living area by a door. It also had a second television in this area. There was good access to the beach. The pool and hot tub were very nice, as well. There were ample parking spaces during our stay, with overflow spaces across the street. We are already looking forward to returning here again.

Room Tip: The upper floors offer the best views but we had a corner room on the 3rd floor with a very good vie...

Love this hotel. Checked in early today to a warm welcome. Pleasant staff, spacious rooms, and a wonderful beach view. The beach access is awesome and the hottub facing the ocean only makes the property that much better! My only wish would be a full length mirror, otherwise everything and more.

I've stayed at the Beachcomber 12 times, each time for a week, this in itself is a wonderful testimonial and ranks it very high on my list. It's very charming, the staff are friendly and helpful, the property is very well maintained and very clean albeit not quite as up-to-date as some much newer hotels. It's on the quieter west end of Panama City Beach (PCB), less developed, but there is enough within walking distance ( a mile) to be able to park the car for a week and leave it there. There is not much to the continental breakfast but certainly enough to get me through to lunch, juice, coffee ( available 24 hours), muffins, bagels, and a few other things. The outdoor heated pool is always clean as is the hot tub, sometimes you need to ask them to turn on the heat to the pool. It sits right on the beach and every room has a balcony facing it. The rooms all have outside access and I thought this would bother me in feeling less secure as compared to inside access rooms, however this has not been the case, the property feels very safe and secure. You have to pay for internet access, affordable by the week but pricey for one day, in today's world, charging for internet access is not in tune with the times and quite frankly is annoying.

There are times to avoid going unless you are a college student or a motorcyclist. The Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally is held in PCB twice yearly, I was there once and kind of enjoyed the tail end of the event, but it was hard to sleep because of the noise. I've never been there on Spring or Fall break but I could imagine it to be rowdy.

Overall a very good value.
