The room was nice and we loved the full kitchen. The hotel was very family friendly. But the traffic was awful. Bring a bike if you plan on leaving the hotel.

First Holiday Inn Visit
I booked this hotel after seeing it online. I called the reservation line and the rep was very helpful in booking the room and getting us a government discount for one of our nights. The hotel was easy to find and as promised, it was right on the beach. The apartment looked just like the pictures. It was clean and spacious. Everything we needed was provided from dishwashing liquid to bottle openers and paper towels. It had a full kitchen with fridge, stove, oven, double sinks and plenty of cabinet space. There was a radio, toaster, coffee pot, and blender among the many kitchen implements needed to cook. The dining and living room spaces were large and comfortable. It provided two stools for counter eating and four chairs for the table. The pull out sofa had a thick and comfortable mattress. This was a first for me. The pullout beds I usually encounter are not fit for an adult to sleep on. I was really impressed with the mattress quality. The living room area also had a chest with two drawers that housed the television and DVD player. The balcony was large and included a table and three chairs. It had a fantastic view. All the apartments have a balcony with ocean views. It looks out over the pool and spa. The insulation was pretty good because we could not hear the people or the music playing in the pool area unless we were out on the balcony. The bedroom was standard size with a queen mattress. It felt kind of small, but comfortable. The bedroom also included a television and DVD player in a cabinet that contained three drawers. The one nightstand also had three drawers. The closet was small and contained a safe. The bathroom was very nice. You have to enter the bedroom through the bathroom area that includes the washer/dryer closet and a sink area with a lot of counter space and cabinets. There is a door that closes off the entire area to the living room. A second door leads to the tub and toilet area. The tub is large and includes a shower head and separate faucet to fill the tub. It was very clean. All the floors are tile except in the bedroom. There are plenty of towels and the A/C kept the room quiet cool. We preferred to turn down the A/C and just use the two ceiling fans: one in the bedroom and one in the living room area. The pool goes from 3ft to 5ft and is heated. The separate spa is very hot. The beach access is convenient. Guests can rent a beach chair and umbrella from the hotel. My only compliant is that when you get to the sand, there is not a lot of room to set up your own chairs. The tide comes up pretty high. The beach was clean and not too crowded on our side because there are so few hotel rooms, hence fewer guests. The hotel has DVD rentals, board games, and beach game supplies. When we arrived, they had advertised a movie night on the deck area near the pool, but a separate dry area with tables. The movie was free, but you could purchase popcorn from the hotel. The hotel is on Front Beach Road and has access to a Winn Dixie grocery, gas stations and restaurants. It's very convenient to the boardwalk and pier. I enjoyed my stay and will consider returning for a longer trip.

Great location and facility!
Best place I've stayed in panama city beach by far! All the rooms have a good size balcony with all of them having gulf front views. They supply table and chairs on the balcony. The room looks like a full size apartment, the kitchen, living room, bathroom, and bedrooms are all full size, there's even a huge whirl pool bath tub! The kitchen has everything you need as far as dish ware, pots and pans, silverware etc. Fabulous location as well. We were able to walk to pier park in about 15-20 minutes! Outside facing the gulf they have a really nice big size swimming pool and an approx. 12 person hot tub, many lounge chairs, and tables and grill. Do not hesitate to rent one of these rooms you will not be disappointed!! I will certainly be booking my next vacation room here!

Great spot. Great service
Holiday Inn Club vacations in Panama City Beach Florida is a great value for beach front stays! Very clean facility with an outstanding friendly staff. The views from the balcony are excellent, especially at sunset. The units have a well appointed kitchen and are very nicely furnished. The staff also provides a few essentials like paper towels, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, etc to get you started on arrival. I travel every week for business and this is absolutely my favorite place to stay in Panama City Beach. It is close to Pier Park and all of it's shops and restaurants plus there is a grocery store across the street about a block away. Very painless stay always.

A Place of Refuge in a Time of Death
I was especially pleased at the quickness with which Holiday Inn Club Vacations staff rectified an initial situation. Upon arriving to find the room had not been cleaned or set up, the hotel staff upgraded my son and I to a two-bedroom villa and compensated fully the first night's stay. I decided to continue to stay in the upgraded room for the remainder of my stay, often checking just the night before if there was availability because we enjoyed it so much. My father had just died the day prior to our arrival so the upgrade and compensations were a modicum of relief from the great stresses that were plaguing my son and I with respect to all the details we had to take care of during the day. At night, we relaxed and were at peace on the fifth floor of the vacation establishment. I would hear the waves lapping outside my bedroom window and felt connected to nature and the eternal universe. My stay at Holiday Inn Club Vacations in Panama City Beach will forever hold a place in my heart as the place that I found solace and refuge after the death of my talented, funny and incredibly smart father. Thank you.
