Historical Traveler Reviews Seahaven Beach Hotel Panama City Beach
We reserved a room by credit card at 7PM on 9/26. Two day min. We were not told that if we did not arrive by 8AM the next morning, the room would be given up. We arrived at 10AM to find that the room was rented (none available) and we were charged a No Show fee (93.00). The manager said that we should have known to be there by 8AM. He said that he could refund the charges but would not. We asked if we could leave our car and cycle trailer parked there while we walked next door to inquire about a room. He said "No, get it off of our property". No sympathy, just you screwed up, I took your money because I could, and get lost.
Simply the most enjoyable time
7 of my friends and I rented one of the two penthouses that the hotel offers. Let me tell you the place is HUGE! 3 bedrooms, one HUGE king sizebedroom with sunroof(relax you cant see through it), one queen bedroom with a veiw from the front, and the double with a veiw from the front. There are two bathrooms, one standard and the king bath was HUGE also. The kitchen was clean with clean dishes, fridge, sishwasher and stove. Let me tell you, the veiw in the living room was amazing. floor to celing glass windows that wrapped around the entire gulf side of the hotel room. you open the curtains and you feel like you are right on the beach. sunsets and sunrises are amazing(not shing right in though).
you can even walk outside onto the large balcony! Everything in the penthouse was spacious, clean and beautiful. The cost during the season we went was $442 per night after tax, but split that between 8 people for 4 nights and it is around $221 dollars a person for the whole trip.
not bad at all! watch out though, there is a hefty $500 deposit for people under 21 without a person over 25 staying in the room. just dont mess up the place and it will be fine! If ou want a great view and accomodations at a reasonable price, get the penthouse!
This hotel WAS dirty, smelly,poor lighting,bad excuse for a breakfast .
Do not stay here for any price. Staff was not helpful in any way shape or form.
Great view, not the cleanest
We have stayed at Quality Inns before and you could at leat depend on clean accomodations. We are a family of 4 and thought having the 1 bedroom suite, with a kitchen, would be a good choice for our visit to Panama City Beach. The location was fine, and the view from your room was center stage " the Gulf of Mexico". The pots for cooking stored under the cabinets under the kitchen sink were dirty. I had to re-wash eveything. The ceilings of the bathroom were mildewed. Housekeeping was inconsistent. We only received shampoos and coffee for 1 day, out of the 4 days we stayed. The grounds were not kept. Cigarette butts all over the scarce landscaping and the windows, glass doors on the exterior entrances were dirty. We got a AAA discount and still paid $135.00 a night. Be cautious. I wrote, Quality Inns corporate office to express my disappointment.
Review Quality Inn Panama Beach, FL
The room was okay. The grounds, halls, elevators and walkways outside were filthy. The room service was terrible. One day our room was cleaned and the door was left ajar by housekeeping. The room was only half cleaned one day. Clean towels were left but the beds were not made. The air conditioning unit sweated or dripped on our clothing and the carpet. I felt that Panama Beach as a whole was dirty. I don't think I ever want to go there again.
I wouldnt stay here again
Okay, me and 7 friends came down for spring break. Everyone was for the most part helpfull. However there was one lady(Latanya) that was extremely rude the entire trip. She yelles at us and got an attitude very easily. It took us 1 1/2 hours to check in and 1 hour to check out. The fridge was broken and we were told it would be fixed, and they never came, the sinks cloged up. I would not stay here again. I would rather go to a more expensive hotel and actually get some service.
in one word...awesome!!
Acceptable for a few days
We stayed for 4 nights in February 2003. After some of the review we were not so sure about it. Check in was ok, the room was clean, balcony at the beach, a good breakfast in the morning. The pool in not heated and too cold to use during the winter, and the hallways and stairs are not very clean. The one elevator is very slow. They have monthly guests in there suites. Smoking and Non-smoking rooms alternate on the same floors, unfortunatly, smoke will enter into the non smoking rooms. Also the very highly praised Sharky's next door is smoking only, the food is ok, sevice slow, and with the cigarette smoke svirling around our heads we took our dinner out and ate in the room.
Don't close your eyes! Mice are everywhere!
We stayed at the Mark II (same property/owned by Quality Inn), last year and were so pleased. The building was freshly redone and staff and whole experience was wonderul....alot can change in a year!
This time, we were given our first room on the top floor, and were not happy that the adjoining "suite" door was not secured, and the shower was mildewy, so we asked for another room.
This was fine, except halfway thru our stay, we saw something dash across the floor, and it turned out to be a mouse! The staff gave us the option to "upgrade to a deluxe room" on the FIRST foor, or change hotels. We opted to change rooms on the SAME floor but at the opposite end.
That next morning, we saw a mouse dart across the floor AGAIN! The front desk said we could change rooms or go to a different hotel. I said I wanted to be comped and did not want to CHANGE ROOMS FOR THE FOURTH TIME! I saw the hole where the rodent was coming and going from, and knew he was out of the room, so we opted for them to put a trap at the hole so he could not come in the room. That night, the mouse got half trapped and managed to carry the trap across the room and almost escaped. I trapped him with the ice bucket and had security remove him. No sooner did he leave that I spotted another mouse behind the fridge! I was lucky to shoo him out the door myself!
The staff found it laughable that we had this problem, and one person confessed that the restaurant nextdoor had "deep cleaned" since the summer months were over and rodents had come into the adjacent facilities and they were aware of this problem!
It is a nice place to stay but our experience was definitely one we will never forget!
This is absolutely the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The hotel was dirty and there were underage kids drinking and hanging off of the walkways the whole week....right in front of the security guard. There were bloodstains on the bedspread, and no clean towels in the room. There were used tissues in the dresser. The staff was very rude and unwilling to help with the issues that we encountered. These are just a few of the problems we had with this hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

... wasn't the worst. Thanks to the hole in the ozone my skin was prepared. :) we had fajitas for supper. And tonight we pulled out the thrift shop clothes that we'd bought earlier in the trip. We all swapped and turns out I'd ended up with a kilt and matching tartan vest with a lovely orange shirt to go with it. The material made me ridiculously hot in the heat and I was seriously struggling. The sun had definitely taken it out of most of us so we all crawled into bed fairly ...
This morning we got up and grabbed a bite of breaky before meeting up with the group ready for a big drive day. Luckily the morning was fairly broken up because we stopped for a food stop and then continued onto the swamp tour. The last time I did this tour there wasn't many big gators around so it was nice when we stopped off in one of the bayous to be completely surrounded by adolescent gators. There was probably about 8 all around us and the tour guide was feeding them ...
... our two little pups Barry and Eddie. Really, really missed those little guys! Thanks to Isabelle Welage for the great arrangements for our first cruise ever. It certainly won’t be our last! Finally, thanks for all the great comments and e-mails you put on the blog or sent directly to me! Looking forward to seeing all our great friends in Santa Rosa Beach this weekend!
For now and for last,
Ciao! and ...
... was hot and there was birds and I don't swim so I don't get too excited about the beach, nice view though haha. Dinner was at a German beer hall, strange I know being in America and getting German food for dinner but I had salmon anyway, I did German food in Germany and wasn't a massive fan. The salmon was ****, dry and covered in this yuk cheesy sauce ****!! Disappointing The main st was ...
... we head for Civitavecchia to board cruise ship. We will probably take an open air bus to get a flavor of the city tomorrow and plan our excursions from there based off what we see. Friday AM we have a private tour in the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica, et al. Should be fun!
I hope to post pictures as we go starting with the next ...
