Check in was horrible with extra expenses $192 that were NOT in the original online costs. These costs were not explained when I booked and paid online.

"Unacceptable Accommodations"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This three bedroom unit was awful. Nasty, stained carpet, mold on the underside of the sleeper sofa mattress, upholstered chair dirty, loose and dangerous socket on a bedroom lamp, hairs on master bed sheets, several lights out, dead bolt broken, patio doors were open and stick. This place was completely awful, there was no way my family would stay in something this bad. We tried to get switched to another unit, but they could not help us. I am fighting to get a refund because of the condition of this place.

"Awesome! I really enjoyed my stay at this establishment."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This was me and my fiance's first visit to Panama City Beach. I booked reservations at the Laketown Wharf for a four day stay based on information posted on their website. I imagined the actual accommodations to be less than the information presented on the website. Upon arrival to the location we were given a warm welcome by the hotel staff and were checked in without delay. To my surprise the room we reserved was immaculate just like the advertisement on the website (very clean and nicely equipped with pleasant amenities). The balcony with a view of the beachfront was especially nice also. And the fact that the hotel was centrally located to restaurants, department stores, a Walmart, shopping outlets and family entertainment businesses eased the tensions of having to drive long distances. We are looking forward to going back to Panama City Beach in the future and will surely book reservations with Sterling Resorts-Lakefront Wharf. Many thanks to the Laketown Wharf staff.
