This place is a COMPLETE DUMP. It is AWFUL. You think you are getting a good deal based on the prices and the all the stuff on the website but IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. We were there back in July 2011 and it was so hottt. The air did not work AT ALL. They would not even provide us with a box fan. We had to go to Wal Mart to buy a box fan for that roach infested hotel. Secondly, this is a party dump. It is full of drunk teens, drug heads, etc. Music bumps all night long. Screaming hollering, Sex by the pool. COME ON PEOPLE.... Not only were the rooms hot but dirty and smelly. They literally smelled like mold. The covers are not white but brownish looking. The bathroom tiles are coming up and the shower did not even have a shower head. It look like a waterhose coming through the top. The water did not get hot. THe damn toilet seat was even broken IN HALF... It was literally half a toilet seat. The towels looked dingy and dirty. The beds were hard as rocks. There was not even a frame for the beds. the box springs were sitting on 2 by 4's stacked up on top of each other. The beds were not fit to sleep in you feel like you were sleeping on a cement block. NO LIE. This place is awful and needs to be shut down. Get this upon checkout they wanted to keep the fifty dollar deposit because the toilet seat was broken. ARE YOU KIDDING ME????? We reported this to you all when we first got here, along with the air, etc. The response we got was "THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO". This place is hell. It needs to be bull dozed. Also, there are so many bugs and some bugs looked like a new species I have no idea what kind they were. DO NOT STAY HERE. All the maids look like they are on METH. Panama City is awesome and it is worth paying the extra bucks for a nice hotel. I wouldn't give these people a dollar for another room. And their banana peel store you can imagine im sure based on the description of the room. Who knows the way it looks you might find a roach in your sandwich.

Worst Motel Room I Have Ever Seen!!!!

PLEASE.... do not ever reserve a room at Motel Plaza. My husband and I looked at the pictures on the internet and decided the rooms looked good for the price we would be paying. The actual room when we arrived there was NOT EVEN CLOSE to looking like the picture on the internet. We are not picky as far as not staying at an older location. The problem with this motel is not the age. It is completely run-down and uncared for. We paid for the room and then went to look at it. It was just a room with block walls that have not been painted in forever. The furniture is torn all to pieces. The bathroom resembled a bathroom in a jail cell. My husband turned the shower on and only a couple of drops of water drizzled out of the shower head. We did not see a tv or a telephone in the room but may have missed seeing it because of our shock and disbelief of the site of everything else. Luckily, on the phone we were told we would be getting a ground floor room but upon arrival we were given an upstairs room. Because of this error, we were immediately given a full refund for the room. We seriously would have let them keep our $300.00 and slept in our van before we would have slept in that room. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

Unique Quality: DISGUSTING!!
