While not fancy, this family owned lodge has everything you could ask for in a family vacation. You will not have to deal with high rise elevator issues ... you are right on the beach! Movie night, seafood chowder, sandcastle building, etc. The Gilmore family treats you like family during your stay.

You can read my previous review. Nothing has changed. This place is still as nice as it ever was. The staff are always friendly yet professional. The grounds are always very well maintained. Rooms are always clean, kitchens are clean well equipped.The location is also excellent. My only regret is that I can't make it there more often.

This was our first visit to Panama City Beach. Loved the city and loved this hotel. Right on the Beach with a view to die for. Clean Room. Perfect View. Perfect Location. Very Nice Staff. Close to restaurants. Close to activities. Close to the Pier. Highly recommend. Will return again.

We stayed on the second floor of this updated 1957 motel on the main drag in Panama City Beach with our own patio overlooking the Gulf. Even though there were Spring Breakers riding motorcycles and jeeps outside the motel, our room was surprisingly quiet. The kitchenette was adequate and dated, but the bathroom was modernized. This is a 3 star motel in a 5 star location. The staff was efficient and friendly and the motel and grounds were clean. We had a problem with the room and a staffer came quickly and fixed it. Standing on the beautiful white sand beach looking toward this piece of history beyond the dunes among the giant resorts felt satisfying and relaxing.

Room Tip: Request a second floor room for a beautiful view of the sun setting beyond the pier.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this hotel. Our room was steps away from the beach, the pool areas were clean, and there were fun activities to choose from on-site. I definitely recommend this hotel and plan to stay again in the future!
