Just as expectedPosted Sep 21, 2015
Pros: We liked the cleanliness, quiet and easy access to everything and everywhere.
Cons: Not much really, except having a TV guide, but hey we're at the beach, TV isn't supposed to be priority.
Location: We loved that everything we needed or wanted was within walking distance. We ate at Sharky's the 1st night, excellent service, and the beach of course
We decided kind of at the last minute to take a 3 day weekend and go to the beach for our 1st anniversary, we found this condo online through Expedia. We went ahead and made reservations after reading other reviews and looking at pics online, everything was as advertised and we had no problems with the staff,room or any of the facilities.

Location nice, beach access good, 0 cust. servicePosted Sep 19, 2015
Pros: The location, beach access, size of the room, comfy furniture, good washer/dryer, beautiful pool area with ocean view.
Cons: Housekeeping, guest services, having room stocked with at least minimal necessities.
Location: The location is very close to Pier Park. Many restaurant choices close by and the beach is very accessible. Great for family vacations.
The pull out sleeper sofa had a quilted cover that was disgusting. It was dirty and stained. I removed it to put in the washer only to find that the mattress was just as nasty. I started to put the item in the washer but it had a wet load of towels/linen in it leftover from the previous quests! There was no literature in the room directing us on guest services or local attractions. There were no trash bags in the kitchen or paper towels at least 5 burnt out light bulbs in the kitchen/living area no complimentary laundry detergent (so make sure you bring your own). The walls were smudged a closet door handle was broken and the handle to the shower came off in my hand when I turned it. The AC return vent had not been cleaned in a while according to the buildup on it and the carpet was really dirty. I am very unimpressed with cleaning services that we pay for in addition to the rental fees. On our 2nd day I returned to the room from the pool only to find that my key card had stopped working. I called the management company and they sent security to let me in. My family was still at the pool without a phone, I called to request someone go to the pool to let them know I was waiting on maintenance to come fix the problem they said there was no one that could do that. Maintenance never showed and no one followed up .I took my key to have it reactivated and it still did not work. I have pics of the filth if anyone is interested. No excuse for dirty.Very disappointed. No ice machine!

Check in was a little annoyingPosted Sep 13, 2015
Got to the address my phone app advised us of, and walked in the door only to be told we were not there, but at a sister hotel of sorts across the street. We go across the street, checked in, walked up the stairs with our bags only to later realize our room was on the OTHER side of the street (not beach side). Despite that confusion and annoyance, the room itself was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Very close to Pier Park, so excellent location for food and shopping.

This is the way to stay.....Posted Aug 22, 2015
Pros: Location and Price!
Cons: Check in process was a little frustrating...since we booked with a different management company (?) we had to go to a different location to check in.
Location: Close proximity to everything
Renting a privately owned condo was a great choice. The room was very clean, comfortable and a great price! It was my understanding, Origins was right on the beach. It isn't. The pictures showing the walkway to the beach are across the street on the back side of the hotel office. The Seahaven hotel is the one on the beach but I heard it wasn't as nice as Origins. Even with being a little disappointed we weren't right on the beach, it was not even a minute walk to the private access beach located across the street. The location of Origins was perfect in relation to all the attractions to do on PCB. When we return we definitely will book here again.

Pleasantly surprisedPosted Aug 18, 2015
After reading most of the reviews, I can honestly say I was a little worried about my stay, however it couldn't have been more opposite. I arrived at noon on the day I was to check out and went to the front desk with the assumption I would not be able to check in yet. AND they let me. Bonus #1. From reading the reviews I knew I had to go across the street to check in which wasn't a big deal at all. Bonus #2. My room was clean (enough) and nothing like they were described from the reviews ( as far as being dirty). The hotel was in a prime location. Close to the beach, shops, food. Bonus #3. Access to a full kitchen in the condo was nice. Bonus #4. I would visit this location a hundred times over. Very pleased.

Had my room broke into by employees there and money and a iPhone 6+ stolen and they are only giving me 3 night stay for about $1,500.00 that it's costing me extra.

Nice Condo with poor staff!!Posted Aug 7, 2015
This Condo was perfect if it was equipped with supplies and cleaned!!! We had to request clean sheets and towels when we got there. No dish towels and/or toilet paper. We made our bed and realized that nothing had been cleaned. Sand everywhere even in the bathtub with half empty shampoo bottles.

Ugggh! 😤😩Posted Aug 3, 2015
The hotel employee named Stacey was very rude and unprofessional. Was very quick to belt out instructions as if I actually asked for them. Hotel room was not ready after manager said she would bump us up to priority Stacey insisted that she could not check on our room she could not give us our room until 430 she also did not want to radio into housekeeping to see if our room was ready it was awful then you had to trade your bath towels out across the street every day can you imagine walking across the street with dirty towels trying to get clean towels it was awful I will never stay at that hotel again PS the manager was nice
