We came to the place but we did not stay. We lost our deposit, but we would rather have our sanity. Their was African Americans outside looking like they were gonna have a party and maybe be some bad things gonna be happening. They were outside cussing and saying nasty things and rubbed up on each other. Looked at two different room but didn't not me a two women and children ordeal! Was not impressed when we looked at the room. So however we didn't stay.

We took a trip for my birthday last year and booked a room based on price and reviews. Now that we have been there we are wanting to plan a trip for this year and I would definitely go back to the Lollye. We will be taking our daughter this time and it's nice to know what we are getting. Clean rooms, functional kitchen, and affordable. Not to mention location! I can afford to stay in the condo towers but I don't see any reason to with comfortable, quieter options right down the beach. I like the feel of the place and love being able to basically step right to the beach from the room. So all in all, yes it's older, and has some scrapes and bruises, but it's cared for. People are friendly and helpful. And I'm looking forward to our next visit.

It is nothing fancy, but it was perfect for what we needed! Budget friendly, pool, and right across from the beach. It also had a kitchen, so we could cook meals and save money. It could use some upkeep (locks on doors), but it was great for us! The cable didn't work great, but we spent most of our time on the beach, so that wasn't really necessary.

We booked our stay at Lollye on the Beach for the first leg of a family trip to Florida. We have four kids, two of which are college age. It was going to be an expensive 10 day trip that included a week at Disney parks and Harry Potter world. We choose Panama City Beach because we used to live in Tallahassee and love the panhandle beaches. Lollye on the Beach offered an oceanfront room with two bedrooms and a sofa sleeper and full kitchen that was too good of a price to believe. Skeptical, I read reviews here that talked of their friendly staff and like-home feel. I also loved that it was an older-throwback Florida property rather than a big resort hotel. I'm a support the small business guy, and this was perfect. I called them to ask further about the room and beach, and they said it was 15 feet from their deck--SOLD. The room was nice-not fancy or real large, but this was truly oceanfront. The front bedroom and front room had windows right out to the deck with the beach right there. That rooms also extended in front of the second floor, so that there was not another hotel room directly above that bedroom, making it a very quiet room. Each room also had a ceiling fan, which was nice, and there were air conditioners in the front room and the back bedroom. My four kids doubled up just fine on the queen bed in the back bedroom and the sofa sleeper. We ate all of our meals in using the kitchen and the charcoal grill. We packed our food in to save money but also used a Dollar General that was 5 minutes away.
This is not a luxury vacation rental, but it was very comfortable, very affordable, and the staff was great. They were very friendly and very accommodating. The maintenance attendant helped me inflate all 6 of our large inflatables with a compressor -saving me a lot of time. It's also a smaller place, so even though on the weekend they were full, there was plenty of space on the deck and on the beach. And the beach was the real star: lovely white powder sand, warm blue and green clear water. There was plenty of space to spread out and not be on top of others. My kids love to dig in the sand and build castles and tunnels. Plenty of space for that. Looking up the beach at the high rise hotels just up the way, those beach areas were overcrowded, and yet in front of Lollye there was lots of space.
So, bottom line is that their location right on the beach can't be beat, especially for the price. Their rooms are comfortable, and the staff is great. A few things to know. The desk area closes at 7 pm, which I also think is great-the staff gets to go home to their own lives. There's an emergency number if there's a problem, and there wasn't any. It's a small and simple operation. Parking is a challenge when they're busy because of the very small lot. There is not daily housekeeping, but you can change out the towels and get soap or TP from the front desk. Where we were constantly coming and going from the room, we were glad not to have daily housekeeping. Also, there was free wi-fi, but in our room we could only get it well in one small area of the front room. But our room is the furthest from the office. We had such a great stay and had to drag ourselves away. For a family looking for a great value at a perfect location, this is the place, and we can't wait to come back.

Room tip: Book early enough for the oceanfront. Great spot.

Wow. Thank you for ALL the kind things you had to say about Lollye. it is families like yours that make Lollye a special place to stay. Thank you for mentioning our staff as they each try to make your stay an enjoyable one. I am so glad you had a great time and we look forward to your return. We are just a "mom & pop" not a fancy high rise, but we try to offer an atmosphere for families who just want to a beach vacation. Again many thanks.
