“Had a great time!!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

My fiancée and I stayed at the beachcomber aug 17-20th for a much needed vacation. When we arrived at the front desk we were greeted by a very nice clerk named Camille. She was very knowledgable about all the amenities of the hotel and surrounding areas. The room was neat and clean. There is also too flat screen T.V.'s in the room, full kitchen and an additional sitting area. We were on the 5th floor and the views were breathtaking. The parking was decent and the hotel is close to pier park and fast food restaurants. We will visit this hotel again.

Room Tip: Request a room on the 5th floor or higher for a better view

Had a great time. Our room had 2 A/C's and 2 flat screens, very comfortable and quiet! Plenty of room in the bathroom. Pool was very clean. Large pool deck (needs deck lights at night and music all day until pool closes.) Does have laundry room coined washers and dryers. Not far from the Pier, Pier Park, Winn Dixie, Walmart, Target, and Miracle Strip.

Room Tip: 5th floor or higher for great view of the Gulf.

We just spent 1 week at the Beachcomber by the Sea. Rooms were spacious with a sitting area and full kitchen. The staff were very friendly and it was clean. The rooms do need to be updated though. The first room we had was right across from the elevator and the rug had some holes in it. We asked to be moved and they accommodated us immediately with no problem at all. The hotel was full so it must be popular. It has a nice pool and just steps from the beach. All rooms faced the beach so had a great view. I would definitely come back. The beach and water was beautiful!

My wife and I and also our 2 sons and my son's 15 yr old friend all stayed here. We all had plenty of room and cooked breakfast and dinner. Outstanding cold ac. Awesome ocean front view. Easy parking and quick elevator ride and your in the room. The daytime African American front desk person (didnt get her name) was very nice and helpful. The night blonde attendent eas rude and very non helpful. Contenintal Breakfast was minimal and crowded in a very small room.just buy food and cook in the room.

Absolutely love this hotel. Perfect location and every single room has beach front view. Beds are super comfy. Rooms are clean and the kitchen came in very handy. Love how living room and bedroom are separate with 2 flat screen tv's. The staff wasn't very knowledgeable on some things and breakfast could've been a little better as they do not have waffles everyday. Other than that, no complaints. This is an older hotel so it's not an upscale place if that's what you're looking for. However, if you're looking to have a great tine on a budget definitely stay here! Beachcomber is the best out of the 3 resorts they offer. Legacy and Beachbreak are the other two. Save your money and stay here!

We chose Beachcomber mainly because the price was good and online pictures looked okay. Our view from the balcony was great, but our rooms were somewhat disappointing. The living room had a couch that looked dirty. We covered it with a sheet before we would sit on it. Carpet needed cleaning. There was no other chair in the living room-just wooden kitchen chairs. The bedroom was large enough and the bed was comfortable, but the A/C unit was loud during the night . The kitchen area was clean, but one cabinet door was loose. Bathroom was fine. All in all, the staff was friendly, the beach was beautiful and not too crowded, the view is excellent, but the rooms could use some updating-especially the couch!

Room Tip: Get a room on upper floors or the palm trees will block your view. We were fine on the fifth floor
