Reviewed 17 June 2016

I love this area of Panama City Beach its nice and quiet and pretty beaches. The location is close to all the attractions in the area. The property has great security. The pool and hot tub have been remodeled in the last couple of years so its pretty new. Overall this is a great family place to stay. I have stayed here many times over the years.

Room Tip: Best views 8th floor and up

We stayed in a ground floor unit that was very accommodating and convenient to everything. We could walk out to the patio and access the pool and beach. Everything at the condo was very clean and obviously cared for. Parking was a bit of a premium at times. We liked being at the end of the 'strip' and really out of the way of the main traffic. There's a Dollar General nearby which we shopped at several times and found convenient but very very busy. We found an Applebees that was on a back thoroughfare as well. Our ONLY complaint was that we booked in late August expecting kids to be back in school and there were many families who were still at the facility. We like kids, but, it gets frustrating to want to use the pool and be unable to get in because it's overrun with unsupervised children until closing. We were very surprised at the amount of litter on the beach, even though there are signs everywhere encouraging ppl to pick up their trash--it seems many people are not heeding the rules. There was quite a bit of trash on the beach that you had to step over. We picked a lot of it up the first day, but the second day it was there again. There's no easy answer for people who litter! But it says something about the change in clientele over the years. There did not used to be a litter problem. Overall, the staff at The Commodore were very helpful and friendly and we had a great and relaxing time!

Stayed: August 2015

Vickie B thank you you so much for your review. We are a family oriented property and usually we don't have a lot of children in August. Please give us another try in late August. It is really unfortunate that other people had left their trash behind on the beach. It is a shame that people come to the most beautiful beach in the world and litter it up.

Staff was very nice and helpful! We stayed in one of the efficiency units which are okay for couple only. Doesn't have much of a balcony. The room was clean. Overall I would rate it B. Not pet friendly so we could not bring our fur babies. Really wish they would reconsider allowing pets! Won't leave my babies again!

Room Tip: Efficient units are small with almost no balcony.

Thank you for your comments. We do hope you visit us again. We would like for you to bring your pets, but only owners are allowed to have pets. We would love for you to join our big happy family of owners so you could bring your fur babies.

On our first visit, we stayed with a snowbird friend and fell in love with the facilities. This year we stayed in our own condo for 3 nights. I was surprised about all the surcharges/cleaning charges etc, so don't expect the listed nightly rate - it is much more. Also, wasn't expecting the $300 refundable deposit. I understand it, but wasn't expecting it. That said, it was worth it to have a kitchen and laundry in our room. The pool and hot tub are well maintained and amazing. Direct access to the beach is also perfect. It was quiet. Bill, the security guy, is very friendly and kind. All the residents were friendly and understanding/accommodating to our children. The sofa sleeper hyda-bed and the king bed were both quite uncomfortable with worn mattresses, but we were able to sleep well despite these discomforts. We would stay again!

Thank you so much for your review. I am always happy for feedback especially if there are things that can be corrected to make your stay better. I have updated our reservation webpage to show at the very beginning that the reservation rate that you see does not include the cleaning fee, admin fee and taxes. As you book your reservation you will see the total with these fees included. I am not aware of any condo rental properties on Panama City Beach that does not charge a refundable deposit (hotels & motels excluded). The rate varies by size of unit and property. I am very sorry that the bedding was not comfortable. All of our units are owned by individual owners and if you would let me know the unit that you stayed in I will be glad to forward the info. to the owner.

The commodore promotes activities to help people get to know one another. The pool is always warm, there is a room designated for get-togethers as well as a room full of books for people to read/exchange. What a friendly staff and residents! We were extremely pleased with our condo and the maintenance folks' response to problems we had. The work was done quickly and maintenance was very friendly.

Room Tip: The condos are held to strict standards, therefore no surprises for the visitor.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We at the Commodore love to have our Winter Snow Bird Guests. It's like one big family get-together. Would not want to spend the Winter any other way.
