Holiday Terrace Motel
Ranked #29 of 49 Hotels in Panama City Beach
Reviewed 30 May 2017

I don't know where to start. The staff...horrible. The rooms....even worse. The housekeeping...not even close.
1) The staff is rude and can't stay off their cell phones long enough to even be polite.
2) Rooms are disgusting. Takes grocery store feet to a whole different level.
3) Parking is non-existent unless you're across the street in a not so safe place.
4) No structure at all. People are allowed to be as loud and messy as they please. Pool has no guidelines. Floats and broken glass bottles everywhere.
5) Bring your own bottle of Clorox for the rooms. They're worse than disgusting.
6) We only use a room to sleep basically. The beds were so uncomfortable that our children woke up out of dead sleeps to say they couldn't sleep. They were exhausted and couldn't even stay awake on the beach during the day.

****MY ADVICE: RUN FAR FAR FAR AWAY!!!! Only positive: nice view of beach if you can stand on your balcony without getting high from someone smoking pot or being in a billowing cloud of cigarette smoke.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have the same issues according to fellow guests.

A beautiful setting and best beach. Prices were reasonable for early off season. The only problem is the beds are hard as a rock. If you are used to a memory foam this is not a good fit. Balcony for viewing the sunrise and sunsets is worth a lot..

Got a room for three months from now to celebrate annivesary with friends. The friends wife passed away. Wanted to cancel the room three months in advance and they will only cancell with FULL PAYMENT. This is an unfair practice. They will only rent the room again to someone else and collect double the rent. Greed will be the decline of these people.

We just stopped over for the night. Price was very reasonable for a direct beachfront balcony room (under $150) on Spring Break. The best thing is the view and location. It is located directly on the ocean and has a beautiful and great view from every room and every balcony. The room was clean as can be for a dated property. This property DOES ALLOW SMOKING, beware. There were people smoking in the elevators and multiple places all around the property.

My husband and I recently went on a quick getaway to PCB and didn't want a condo as it was a quick trip. I had researched on the internet other places to stay and came across the Holiday Terrace Motel. It's a place I had seen time and time again on my trips to the beach but had never stayed there. We will probably stay there again! The place was conveniently located, it was clean, reasonably priced and right on the beach. Had a great balcony to sit on and enjoy watching the ocean. The lady who took my reservation was super friendly and helpful as was other staff we met when we were there. The room was spacious and had a full bed and a king bed in separate rooms, each with tvs. Very comfortable too! Had a great experience and would recommend this place highly!

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view.
