Top Budget Friendly Hotels In Panama City Beach

These are the top picks updated for this year:

Casa Loma.

Laid back, older hotel. The way my family looks at it is we spend the majority of our time outside.

This hotel has gorgeous beach views and the pool we like to relax in after a day spent on the beach. Staff has always been very friendly, and we haven’t had any issues the few times we’ve stayed over the years.

We are due for a return trip and may make that happen this season because their prices are always affordable. This hotel is farther than we like from Pier Park. Check rates and availability here: Casa Loma

Days Inn by Wyndham Panama City Beach.

For a budget hotel, this one is on the nice side. The view from your hotel room is let’s just say stunning. After all that’s why we return time after to PCB and why it’s my #1 beach.

Run and pick up some breakfast from the complimentary breakfast bar and enjoy watching the sunrise from your private balcony.

This budget hotel is definitely a keeper in my book. Check current rates and availability here: Days Inn PCB

Comfort Inn & Suites

This option is not directly on the beach. It is in the city center with easy access to the beach.

Because it is not located on the sand, you save. Includes breakfast and Wi-Fi. Perfect for families as this hotel does have an outside pool. Check current rates and availability here: Comfort Inn & Suites

Bikini Beach Resort

Rounding out the top four is Bikini Beach Resort. In the Long Beach neighborhood of PCB, it is on the beach.

On site is a swimming pool, chairs, umbrellas and even a poolside bar. Also, easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Check current rates and availability here: Bikini Beach Resort

If you remember reading this article when it was written, you will notice a few hotels have been dropped from the list. As they have been taken over by larger hotel chains, they are not as nice and friendly as they used to be.

Our last visit where we stayed at the hotel we literally went to for over 15 years was a nightmare. Dirty. Rude staff. Even being directly on the beach did not overcome these issues.

So we dropped those off our list of hotels we stay at. My husband and I at this point, empty nest travelers. We prefer low-key, relaxing budget friendly beach vacations.

Since we spend the majority of our time outside, as long as the room is clean, we’re happy. After all isn’t that why we all go to the beach anyway?
