It was okay, that's all.

The hallway carpet seemed a little dingy and worn in the hallway. There was also a hint of mustiness in the hallway and room too. Although I didn't use the pool it was very small and in a cramped space behind the motel. I guess a positive for this motel would be that it was relatively close to the beaches and other attractions, as it was immediately over the Hathaway Bridge on the east side. The reasonable price for the room compared to "on the beach" motels reflected the general condition and location of this place. With a little sprucing up, it could be better than okay.

I think it was about 5 miles to the "main drag", including beaches, attractions, and what else, Wal-Mart.

Affordable Lodging

We stayed at the Hathaway because it was fairly priced and we were only there for the night. Were somewhat concerned with cleanliness because of other reviews, but it seemed okay. No frills but comfortable. Got a good night's sleep and were on our way.

Okay for my needs at the time

This hotel is okay but nothing special. The carpet in the hallways seemed a little dingy and worn. The pool is pretty small and in a "cramped" area behind the hotel. The hotel is literally right over the Hathaway Bridge and approx. 5 miles or less to the main beach area, or a good landmark such as Wal-Mart. It's an easy drive to the beach area, if you don't have to stay on the beach. So, that would be a positive, I guess. The bed was pretty comfortable and the room was pretty clean, with a nice flat screen on the wall. I guess the musty feeling in the hallway makes the hotel seem not as clean and new as it should be. Like I said, some new capet might help. I stayed there because it was the best price for the location at peak time rates.

Don't get in the 23rd St. left turn lane when approaching the hotel, if coming from the west (beach side). Go through the traffic light, then an immediate left into hotel.

Business and pleasure

Staff was friendly and helpful - pool was clean and sparkling. Fridge and microwave plus ironing board and iron. Other guests were from all over the country and from all walks of life which made for interesting conversations and sharing of stories in the breakfast room. I enjoyed my stay here and Panama City Florida was beautiful.

Rented a pontoon boat for all day from Scotty's Boat Rental right down the street and went out to Shell Island. There is a place where people congregate on the east end of the Island and have fun. Just be careful of the boat traffic along the way.

Great place to land

My family tagged along with my husband as he had business in Panama City. This was a perfect affordable place to stay. The rooms were clean, the pool was nice, and it was close to the beach.

My stay

Hathaway Inn Panama City is pretty much just a place to get a cheap room. The breakfast was pretty much your choice of a danish or bread. Ice machine did not work on my floor. Also there was a massive crack in my shower. I only needed a place to sleep a few hours a night, since I had to go to work early.

Good Weekend visit worth the money !!!

I stayed here for two nights (April 19th & 20 2013) while SCUBA diving. The room was clean, comfortable and met my needs for a place to sleep. Large screen TV available in room for those that watch TV. Small refridgerator and microwave along with a 4 cup coffee maker. Continental breakfast offered cereal, waffles, pastries and oatmeal. Juice and coffee are also available. Queen sized bed was comfortable and the air conditioning / heating unit performed great. No security latch on the door but it does have a deadbolt. Quiet place to stay even though it sits at a major intersection right across from the college. Therefore, you may find it difficult to enter or exit the parking lot at peak times, (rush hour). There is a convience store/gas station right next door however they're are no restaurants within walking distance. Personally I thought this was a good deal for weekend accomodations for my SCUBA diving trip. I did not use the pool so I can't speak of its condition .
