You get what you pay for

Posted Aug 19, 2017
This hotel is an excellent location it's far enough away from the hustle and the beach is near perfect but the hotel is run down and just plain dirty. The room was sand covered, the carpet, the tile and the shower. Very dated and uncomfortable. The elevators were horrible. The area where the staff does laundry on the 1st floor was nothing short of atrocious, no air conditioning for the area??

Great hotel on the beach!

Posted Jul 22, 2017
We loved our stay at Beachside Resort! The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. The hotel is on the beach and the view is amazing. They also have a nice pool and hot tub. There isn't a continental breakfast but we had a microwave and refrigerator in the room. Overall great experience can't wait to come back!

Perfect Location

Posted Jul 10, 2017
It's on the beach and rooms have balconies facing the beach. Far enough away from the crowded strip and beaches.

Great hotel staff but very outdated and rundown.

Posted Jul 3, 2017
First off the hotel staff was incredibly friendly and so helpful. But I have to only give this hotel 2 stars bc the hotel itself is very outdated. The pictures of the rooms are deceiving and they are much smaller than they appear online. The noise late at night between 12:00 am to around 4:00 am was awful. People constantly beating and banging on doors. If it wasn't for the amazing and friendly hotel staff then the experience at the hotel would have been a complete disaster.

Hello Josh, Thank you so much for your stay with us, we are truly sorry about the issues you experienced. We have several different room types at this hotel, with smaller and larger options with a private balcony overlooking the beach. Please also accept our sincerest apologies in regards to the noise. The auditor did address the issue when made aware, but I am sorry to read that it did not quiet down until later. Josh please know that we will revisit our rules and regulations to assure this will stay an isolated incident. Last but certainly not least we would like to thank you for the compliments to our staff. We truly appreciate the recognition. Best Regards,

Close to beach but not close to the action

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Hotel a little ran down. Not be any means a resort experience. No where near dining or stores.

Would stay here again.

Posted Jul 1, 2017
The motel was right on the water. It had excellent views of the beach. Our room had a stove, full size fridge and microwave. We cooked in the room a lot and saved money doing so. They have a nice pool and hot tub for when you tire of the saltwater. We didn't use the bar but it's there if you want to overpay for a beer you could get for a lot less at one of the two grocery stores nearby. It's located between Destin Panama City - Fewer miles to Panama City and a lot quicker because of traffic getting into Destin. Negatives: Slow and hot elevators. The water pressure was a little lacking as well. The air conditioners were loud but they worked very well. Overall, it was a nice place to stay and we'd come back.

Wonderful Getaway

Posted Jun 6, 2017
Pros: Gulf view mainly, that's why I chose it. Away from busy end of beach. Staff very helpful and friendly. Two separate bedrooms with separate ac. Pool.
Location: St. Helen Park, Walk on Pier, Dolphin/Scuba tour, just hanging on the balcony and reading with some dips into the gulf. Wonderful!
Wanted to chillax on the beach away from Missouri for a moment. Stayed 6 nights and five days and then we were ready to head home. Perfect amount of time, though I'm missing it now.
