For the past few years I have always stayed at the Monterey Motel when in Panama City Beach usually long term during their off season. I was attracted by the price and the fact that the motel was within steps from a beach access. But things seemed to have changed here which is very disappointing. Service here has gone from good to poor and worst of all on this stay rodents in my room, not once by 4 or 5 times. Until these things I have mentioned are corrected, I can not recommend this motel.

Room Tip: if you need anything go to Sophie...she is a peach

This motel is very close nit. Everyone there is so kindhearted and most are regular guests how come back every year. The motel parking lot backs right up to a public beach access which is usually very quiet. The pool has a nice sun deck and it isn't so large that a whole resort could be in the pool area, making it more private at times. All rooms are approx. the same size and each has a small living room with dining table and a kitchenette. The bathroom is small with a shower, sink and toilet in each room. The appliances are outdated and the air is musty at first but a spray of Lysol makes it all better. The owners are two sweet old ladies who run it by themselves and all you have to do is ask them and they will go out of their way to make your stay better. I have just gotten back and I have already requested my same room for next year.

I first discovered this little gem a few years ago and I keep returning here when I travel to Panama City Beach, Florida. The two ladys that own the property are very nice and make you feel at home as soon as you arrive. This is a small older property and in my opinion the name motel does not seem to fit. There are 11 units here and they are more like apartments than a motel room. They have a living or sitting area for watching TV/ cooking w/ microwave, fridge, stove, sink , coffee maker, dishes, pots & pans and silverwear / a seperate bedroom or bedrooms / bathroom w/ shower stall. You are within steps of a beach access to the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. They also have a nice clean swimming pool in season. The units are very clean and you can also bring your doggy. What else can I say, other than have a great vacation staying at the Monterey...

Me and couple friends stayed here last year for the Thunder Beach bike rally. I wasn't sure what to expect when friend told me the room was only $59 and it had separate bedrooms but I said what the heck it was in panama city and I got away from Memphis. Lol. We rode bikes down and got there late and office was closed. He said they leave key in room for you. I wasn't use to that. Went in room and sure enough there were 2 separate bedrooms with a kitchen/den and of course bathroom. I was shocked. Sure the hotel was old and so was the furniture but it was all nice and clean. The floors were tile so no nasty carpet here. It is on the quiet end of strip so there wasn't too much traffic and the next morning I discovered we were right across from the beach access. We didn't have to cross a major road just a small street to
Access the condos on the water. We were literally 100 ft or so from the beach. For a two bedroom room that close to the water I have paid more than $200 per night in panama city. This place was like being at home. They have a supply room and when you need something you get it. There is nobody there after dark so you just do it yourself which is fine by me since if you need 5 towels you get 5 towels and not have to deal with housekeeping only wanting to give you 2. This is not a luxurious place by no means. When I go to panama city I go to be on the beach or out doing something not to be cooped up in a room. As long as the beds are clean and comfy I am fine which they were. I will definitely stay here again. To me this is the best deal in panama city.
