Do not trade with this hotel. We made a reservation through Travelocity months in advance to attend an event. Upon arrival, they told us they had canceled their contract with Travelocity and had no room. Travelocity said they were still one of their vendors so they lied to us and sold the room at a much higher rate because this event is always well-attended. Again, do not even think about this operation. They cannot be trusted.

The rooms were absolute disgusting! I had roaches crawling on me when I slept. The owner refused to give us a refund until we threatened to call the health department! Would give them a 0 rating but sadly you can't. The TV did not work the shower was leaking! Pure nasty! Never stay here! Looked like Norman bates was going to show up.

Cooks Motel is a dump. My husband rented the room & when we went to the room, we were disgusted by the look & smell of the room as soon as we opened the door. The carpet was filthy, the room had a terrible smell, the sheets were soiled, & to top it all off, it was infested with roaches. Within 5 minutes of renting it, my husband asked for a refund because there was no way we could stay there. The woman at the front desk told him she couldn't give him a refund. So we are out $52.50. We went across the street & rented a room at a comparable hotel for about the same money. If it looks like a dump, it probably is. Drive on, or at least look at the room before renting.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room prior to renting it.

Labor day weekend and the price was double the average rate.The room had an awful oder and was grungy looking. But I was tired and needed to get some rest from traveling. I was woke up to something biting me. It was like fire ant bites but I saw no ants? Then I tried to connect to the WIFI and kept losing the signal because of someone parked a U-haul outside my room and blocked the signal. I would recommend staying in Panama City and have a nice clean room without getting bit!

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

It is very outdated and old. They need to update it. Some of the rooms stunk and is very old looking. Other than that the service was nice and was surprisingly cleaner than I expected. If they update it than it would be graded higher. Very close too a lot of cool attractions.

Ok i was sketchy at first bc of the other reviews but I was impressed!! The other reviews were bad. But not our stay. We showed up at the last minuate during the summer June 19th-21st. They had rooms available, and also the rooms were clean! Ac works great and the staff is wonderful. The housekeeping ladies were very nice and attentive. The people who USED to own it did not take care of if but the new owners are doing a great job at turning it all around. Me and my family and friends will be back to cooks motel for years to come if the current owners still have it. Great deals and its right across from a nice family fun park. We can't wait to come back! Thank you for A great vacation!

Room Tip: Our favorite room is 127 its actually quiet despite what others say.
