Days Inn Panama City Beach/Ocean Front
Travel Blogs from Panama City Beach
I had a wonderful birthday celebration evening on Monday - everyone from the tour was down by the pool, and had bought me a balloon and cupcake with candles. It was so sweet, and they were all buying me drinks; they are a great bunch of people. We left early this morning for Panama City, stopping for lunch in Gainsville, and arrived at about 4pm. …
The air boat adventure took place in the Louisiana swamps and it was sweltering hot. It was pretty exciting/terrifying to see alligators up so close. And get this, I kid you not, but the alligators came because the guide threw marshmallows in the water! The alligators loved them! It was so weird lol! We got to see a few different alligators, and …
Lots of fun in the sun here we visited Panama city beach Florida this year. We had a blast we went parasailing, jet skiing, and got to encounter wild dolphins around shell island. My family had a great time Parasailing was lots of fun we went on the 4 mile ride what a sight to see (the beatiful gulf coast) wow you will love this, We also got to …
Having hidden from the sun for most of yesterday it was time to get back into the sea. This time we went down to the beach near Pier Park. That first day was definitely the winner for water clarity and massive schools of fish, but today the water was still superbly warm and we spied a lot more crabs and larger fish nipping at our feet (eeek!) We wore our long sleeve ...
... our screening didn't seem to agree as they snored the whole way through.
Feeling refreshed we emerged from the cinema and set out to find a local favorite of "Hunt's Oyster Bar". My hair dresser earlier had said it's the place to go, although I was not expecting too much as she had also recommended I checkout "Chick-Fil-A" (Which is basically an east coast KFC).
Hunt's was very local as promised, complete with drunk ...

Nice Place - Great Pool
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
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.
Avoid avoid avoid
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!
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 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.
We stayed at the Days Inn from November 28 through November 30, 2003.
This was the nicest place iv'e stayed
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
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.
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
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.
