    The highlight of our stay at this hotel was the view from the room, it was spectacular. We got a ocean front room on the 6th floor of the hotel. During spring break the hotel is teeming with students (like us) from across the country who just want to let of steam. The staff seemed cooperative and the rooms were all right. It is a reasonable hotel and one of the few on Panama City Beach which let you check in as long as you are above 18, unlike most other which require you to have at least one member who is 25. The rooms are seem a little musty and the furniture seems dated but since we just used it to sleep and were out pretty much the rest of the time, we didn't care. Well connected and close to everything important at Panama City Beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a reasonable hotel with a good view and location on Panama City Beach.

    Yes this was a very nice place to stay in panama city beach the service was very good, lots of amenities This is a great place, For fun we like to do the water sport activities like parasailing, jet ski rentals, and wow you must try the dolphin tours to shell island what an amazing sight to see, we have found that there are a lot of companies that offer these activities we did our research and found the best was Sunshine water sports of PC They do tours to shell island by boat and jet ski, they are also located next door behind hooters restuarant.

    Nice Place - Great Pool

    from

    This place has been around since the early 1980s and is showing its age. The rooms aren't bad, but they're older and you can expect the usual wear that you find with a hotel in need of a comprehensive re-do. The rooms have private balconies overlooking the gulf and they are all directly oceanfront. The pool is terrific and the kids love it. It is a big cascading waterfall that you can swim behind. It's certainly unique. The location is excellent - right in the heart of PCB.

    I would recommend this place, but don't expect an extremely up-to-date room. It is a good vacation location and excellent view. The kids will love it.

    Prepare to move rooms

    from

    The view was the best part of this trip. In the first room that we got, the refrigerator door would not stay shut so they gave us another room. In the secont room the air conditioner made a terrible noise. Finally they upgraded us to a master room, but the only thing it had besides the basic rooms was an extra bed. And the staff was rude except for the maintence guy, they would talk on the phone about personal stuff while you were waiting for service. I would rather sleep outside than to stay there again.

    This was by far the worst hotel/motel place that I have ever stayed. I stayed there for my spring break trip and because of the poor service and the rude staff it made my trip awful. They make you wear id bands and the bands were checked when you walked in and out of the facilities. We were treated like prisoners. I understand that it was spring break and college kids do crazy things, but this was no way to treat your guests. Plus, they didn't provide maid service everyday, maid service had to be requested. Their towels were dirty with stains and hair. Their bedsheets were dirty, the place was just gross. I will never stay at a Days Inn every again.

    I loved it!

    from

    The staff was great, the rooms were clean... except the sand I tracked in from the beach. Everyone was friendly, the pool was awsome. The view was great. Your right on the Panama City strip... you can walk the strip at night and walk on the beach during the day. It was fun, and the hotel was very convienent. everything was right there, and it was nice.

    Not a good hotel

    from

    From the brochures and online documents, I thought that this would be a really great hotel. And it would be if only their housekeeping would actually clean. The floors were continuously sticky and unclean. The sheets and comforter were not changed regularly. All in all, we will not be staying here again.

    Not Clean!

    from

    We stayed at the Days Inn from November 28 through November 30, 2003.

    My first impression as soon as we walked into the room was DIRTY! Mind you, my boyfriend and I are in our mid-twenties and do not expect high-class, but we expected better than this, especially while visiting on an off-weekend. We requested a suite, which was more like a spring break "sprawl anywhere" room. The microwave and coffee maker were dirty, and the fridge didn't close because there was rust on it! Even the door hinges had rust on them (all of the doors!). The bathroom floor was dirty and the sheets had a faint smell of smoke, which made me question the last time they had been washed. I checked out the hotel on the internet before going...all I can say is that we were disappointed with it when we saw it in person! The only redeeming value is the beautiful beach it overlooks! Next time we are going to stay at the Holiday Inn SunSpree! It is only $10 more a night!

    This was the nicest place iv'e stayed

    from

    We had reservations at another hotel but didn't feel safe there and left. The staff at the days inn found us a room even though this was the week of the Indian Summer Festival and they were almost booked. The room was very spacious and clean. The balcony looks right out over the beach. The pool and hot tub areas were always clean and never too crowded. Every day the cleaning staff would restock my room with not only extra soaps and shampoos but also dishwashing liquids and coffee and coffee filters. I have visited Panama City Beach at least a couple of times my whole life and the Days Inn made this the best trip so far.

    The Greatest Pool

    from

    It was our first visit to Panama City Beach and we loved it ! The motel staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us an excellent price for our 7 night stay. The pool has to be the best on the beach! It was beautiful. We will definetly go back soon.

    Not clean

    from

    My husband and I were there for the Indian Summer Festival Oct 10, 11 and 12. The only problem we had was that the room was not clean. The floors are ceramic tile though-out and they were sandy and had hair everywhere. We didn't mind not having carpeting if the floors had been clean. We ended up going to Walmart for slippers to walk around the room in. The microwave and coffee maker were both filthy. I called the front desk on the first morning to have them ask housekeeping to give the room a good cleaning and to clean the floor. We were out of the room for about three hours - they did come in and wet mop the floors but didn't sweep up the hair nor did they clean the microwave or coffee pot. So ... we ended up checking out after two nights instead of three because we could never get comfortable in the dirty room.

    Loved the entire atmosphere

    from

    All of the reviews were pretty much negative we were there from July 16 through July 20 03. I just want to give a wonderful review everything was clean people were wonderful. The pool was great that is the best feature. We were even able to check in at 12noon when it was not suppose to be until 4 pm. I would recommend to anyone it was wonderful at least at this time frame I would stay out of panama city any time during spring break. I will give them a thumbs up.

    The day started at breakfast. Rice Krispies believe it or not, nice English cereal! Had to be on the bus to leave New Orleans for 7.45am. Had to wait an hour on the bus as one girl had a few drinks the night before bless her and forgot her alarm but we found her in the end and got going. We then set off for Panama beach! Couple of hours later we …

    ... You won't regret it. Our last full day in Florida was for Leah's birthday, and I guess I can tell you now I'm taking her to Madrid in September as her present! :) we spent the morning very lazily and went shopping later on before an afternoon beach session (in case you hadn't guessed, we lived on that beach, and it was amazing!). Her choice for dinner was Pineapple Willy's, a bit down the coast in Panama City. After a little wait we were sat ...
