We enjoyed our stay here, but it was missing a few common necessities. Apparently their ice machice was out so we had to buy ice. They also required you to call and ask for extra linems and towels. You also had to take out your own trash. I beleive this place would be a great stay if some minor repairs were done. Otherwise i will not stay here agai […] n. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Be careful for hidden fees"
The room waw unclean and smelled like febreeze mixed with cigarette smoke. We were promised a gulf view and had a view of a swamp. We were promised a washing machine and dryer and there was none. The staff were rude. TheGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beach acsess hotel, With a beach front price"
The Hotel, looks like a beat up brand new place. Seems that the property its fairly new but lack of maintenance its taking its toll on it, too bad for a property with so much potential, dirty, smely and personell is way less than minimum, get your pocket ready for the fees keep poping up once you get there. They will also charge a Room damage fee, just […] in case something breaks but its not refundable either way. Cheap matresses, really unconfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
There was a little confusion as to where we needed to check in and could have been indicated more clearly. There was an issue on Sunday morning while trying to load the car and check out with the elevators. It was taking 15 minutes or more to get an elevator. I had to drag luggage down the stairs in order to load my vehicle then my handicapped parents […] had to stand in the hall waiting for an elevator for 15 minutes because we had to check out and there were no elevators. On the plus side they were quick to fix any maintenance issues we had and the condo was clean and roomy with a decent view. The walk across the street to the beach and the beach access were easily done. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Across the street from Beach"
We had a great time at Origin of Seahaven. We didn't like that there were no drawers in the room for our clothes. We had to live out of our suit cases the entire trip. The elevators are very slow, so we used the stairs, since we on the 4th floor. Overall, it was a nice trip, and the location of the hotel was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
Management company across the street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is nice would be better if it was on the beach. We got stuck on the 13th floor and thought we had ocean view most def didnt, we had a great view of a camp groundGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I wish my balcony view was not the back side looking at the AC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel close to the beach"
Was a great place to stay for a week. Really close to the beach and good food across the street Sharky's. Walking distance to food, souvenir stores, and about a mile away from the mall. Overall we loved it and if we were to go back to Panama City beach again we would love to stay there again as well. :)Genuine Expedia guest review
The service was awful everything is awful about it they give you a hard time with everything We had to check out at 12 Theresas out of there by 1115 no customer service at allGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't be deceived!!!"
Don't be deceived by the online pictures. This hotel was not at all what we expected. First of all upon arrival you will be charged an additional fee for "cleaning fees and insurance"...this was not disclosed online. At no point during our 4 night stay did any one come and clean our room. The carpets in the hallways of the hotel were filthy and smelled […] mildewed. We had to take out our own trash and the areas where the trash receptacles were located stunk. Our room was supposedly for 4 people but there is only a small pull out couch and it was way too small and had a thin uncomfortable matress...thank goodness we decided to take an inflatable matress just in case. We were stuck in the hotel a lot due to rain and had plenty of time to look around. We were very disappointed in how deceived we were. We spent entirely too much money for our stay and zero service! This hotel is across the street from the beach...not beachfront so there is no need to pay for a view because you won't get it. There is not a restaurant on site so do not expect room service. Overall, we would not stay here again...lesson learned! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We booked through Expedia and thought that was the end of our purchase. When we got to the hotel they made us check in across the street and nobody was friendly or inviting. When we checked in they then told us about the cleaning fees and insurance charges which totaled about a $120 per room for a one night stay ontop of the room purchase. We got two […] rooms and both had a lot of damage to them. When we book the hotel it had a 4 star rating, we have know idea how that was possible. There were many others at the counter not happy as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not on the beach."
The hotel lacks parking, and the overflow parking is not very close to hotel. Very disappointed with the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Paid to much"
Supposed to have ocean view...didn't. Elevaters took forever. Most I have paid for a hotel and they didn't have daily services. Had to ask for towels daily and room was never cleaned.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was ready extra early when getting there. Very roomy and comfortable rooms. Great view of the ocean. Only downfall was smelling Sharkys smelly kitchenGenuine Expedia guest review
Location was nice, although the Origin is across the street from the beach and associated beach-front property does not have a pool on the beach. There is no daily room service unlesss you call for it, and then expect to call at least twice. There are no towels provided at the pool. Expected a room with two beds, instead got a queen and a fold out sofa. […] The fold out sofa was very uncomfortable. Room did not have an ocean or view of pool area. Elevators were extremely hard to get, and did not seem to work at all times. Was not one of the cleanest or best maintained hotels/condos where I have stayed. Kitchenette was small and had a dorm room sized refrigerator. Saw lots of out-of service signs on vending and gaming equipment. There are nicer rooms available, but ours was not one of the nicer rooms. In short, not a good value for the money, and would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There was a cleaning fee that I was not aware of $174.00. The beach was across the street. The people at check in were not overly friendly. However, the staff were very nice at the Condo. Fourth floor is the best.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The problem I had was service you had to go across the street to ask for towels which I never recieive and in the main building no one could tell u anything u always had to go across the street .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"dirty and hidden fees"
The bathrooms in the 2 units we rented were not cleanened, dispite being charged $150 damage and cleaning fee per room after we paid for the rooms. Units are owened by some besides Origins, so don't expect any cleaning or help. No internet in the rooms either.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
First Expedia booked a different room that was advertised, second the room didint have amenties that was advertised, third elevators did not work, or was in hurry to get fixed. You have to take care of any issue across the street from the office at the place your staying, difffernt managing company. The staff keep telling to get in touch with Expedia […] when a problem occurred or when open the door to see this was not what we booked. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the pay"
It was not worth what I paid for it. For that much money we should have at least got a ocean view. Instead we got a view o the swamp. The room was clean but nothing impressive about it. Couldn't even check in inside origins, but instead had to go across the street to check in. Didn't have coffee, didn't have ice, I wouldn't go back there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only good thing was the balcony!"
When room was booked it said it was OCEAN FRONT, when we checked in we had to pay a cleaning fee then learned the room was across the street from the beach not ocean front. We switched to the Ocean Front motel and checked in, we did get the cleaning fee back. The motel said it had daily cleaning services, day 1 we got clean towels and thats it, day […] 2 we asked for the room to be cleaned 2 times and told them we were going out and they said they would clean while we were gone but they did not, they did send someone up at 10:30 at night to spot clean and change 1 bed. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!! Also there is no parking anywhere!! People eating at Sharky's take the parking places. If anyone is going to stay at the hotels (there are 3 of them together) RUN!!!!

this stay In origin at sea haven was the most horrible experience ever!!!!across the road from the beach which we were not told! $113 cleaning fee due upon arrival! company sold so the condos were split and we had to go across the road to check in/out get towels etc. the service was terrible! nobody cared if you had a complaint and I left a number for […] a manager to call me and never heard from her!

"origin at seahaven"
Room was nice & very well located to the beach. Only thing I would suggest they change is the room service. Our carpets in the room were pretty stained up & there was no room service. If we needed something we had to walk across the street where we checked in & ask for it. For the price, out room was overall pretty good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My wife did not even stay in the room it was so bad...left to go stay with other friends in their condo instead of even 1 night here! They charge $150/clean fee even for a 1 night stay. Waste of money and rewards points...would never recomend...would rather stay in a tent!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was OK,accross the street from the beach."
The hotel was OK but the staff was not all that helpfull, we had to walk accross the street to check in and they did not mention that we had to pay a 113.00 cleaning fee. They don't clean the rooms daily so you have to kepp up with the cleaning so I did not like that at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Horrible experience at Origins at Seaheaven"
Our stay at Origins is the very worst experience we have ever had! We have stayed in some amazing places and some not so amazing and this stay at Origins was by far the worst!!!!! The front desk staff during the day was awful, Josee in particular was so beyond rude, she could not tell us a check in time for our room, she did not greet us at all when […] we walked in, and once we came back so we could check in she literally threw our check in package at us over the counter!!!! I have never been so offended! Once we finally got checked in and in the room, the room was filthy! There was hair clumps wrapped up in what was suppose to be clean towels, cigarette burns in the plastic soap wrapper, sand all over a "clean" floor. I will NEVER and quote me, NEVER stay on this property or any that Origins may own! We have never been treated so bad, and not to mention the hidden $170 cleaning fee they charge you when you check in, we where not the only tenants surprised by this charge, we talked to several other guest that where totally unaware of this additional charge, luckily hotels.com gave us the cleaning fee back for our very unclean condo! My worst experience EVER!!!!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rent here only as a VERY last option!"
Quite possibly the worst resort "condo" I have ever rented. The location of the room in the building was in the middle section of the back of the hotel. It's small enclosed balcony offered no circulating air and a view of the parking structure, loud AC units, a power plant, and a swamp. The carpet was disgusting, There were no dressers or drawers for […] any belongs. The shower did not work! On a positive note, Hotels.com had excellent customer service when the resort charged us a hidden fee. I would suggest staying almost anyplace else except Origins at Seahaven.

"Key things they don't tell u"
Service was terrible, hotel is located across the street from beach as is check in. For some reason hotels have different management. No beach chairs you have to rent, no ice machine in hotel you have to buy at store downstairs so go to walmart on other end of strip. No flat screen, clock radio, or washing machine or dryer they are on property down […] stairs but were out of order and you have to pay to use them. House keeping does not come daily, you have to call and front desk says it's 8-10 pm (house keeping) called for towels they arrived that after noon. Overall terrible stay not enough parking... I book expedia all the time and this is not my first stay in panama city, but this hotel was awful. And you pay $130 for cleaning fee.. please read the fine print... I missed it Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved every minute of it! 2nd time staying in room 403 and it was just as great as the first time! Can't wait to go back and request that room again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"I'm very picky and I would stay there again."
The condo that we stayed in had hardwood floors which I liked and the rooms were clean. The only thing that I didn't know about or like was when we checked in they charged a non refundable cleaning and damage fee which was $115! IT is right across the street from the beach and Sharky's (one of the best places to eat)!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great view of ocean"
Great room,always need towels. Had to go across street for everything.At front desk they acted like the had no clue,Genuine Expedia guest review
locked out of room 3 different times due to lock malfunctions. sink in bathroom clogged, toilet ran continuously, never looked at.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel charged an additional $125 for a cleaning fee and "loss wavier". The shower was dirty, hair was still in the shower from previous guests, the carpet was dirty so the room "felt dirty". So much for cleaning. The hair dryer did not work, and the tv was vintage, the tv was not an issue since we did not watch it anyway. The only good thing about […] the room was the bed was comfortable. Room view was of building and parking deck. There is no daily cleaning and you have to call to request clean towels and linens. Then you have to wait for them to arrive as they will not leave them, you have to be in the room when they are delivered. Thought Hotel was on beach but was across street from beach. Hate to say it but this also reflects on my opinion of expedia! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was great like always. I enjoy bringing my grandchildren every year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"More than just a good view of the beach."
Dereck at the front desk was less than pleasing. More the type of host that thinks you are providing them with a service rather than the other way around. Once you get by him at check-in across the street everything else at Origins is great. We stayed on the 13th floor and from there were able to have a great view of the beach and the strip. When you […] stay beachfront you miss out on all of that. The Reef is a 2 story beachfront hotel that is across from Origins and you can easily see over it. They are both owned by the same people so your beach access is between the office and The Reef. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. If you get a 3 bedroom the 3rd bedroom is an adjoining 1 bedroom suite that you have to access from the hallway originally but once inside you can just prop the door open. They did not tell us this at check in and we spent a while looking for that 3rd bedroom. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We lived it our rooms were very nice our biew beautiful. Only complaint elevators kinda slow.Genuine Expedia guest review
Make sure you check with the actual hotel for condo fees and cleaning fees!! We were expecting a dishwasher and washer/dryer in our room, but upon arrival, we had neither! ! Will not stay there again! Even though it was a "condo", we could have got a regular hotel room and saved money!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"DEAD CELL ZONE"
While staying at this hotel I had either zero or less than 2 cell bars reception on my AT&T cell phone and absolutely NO internet connection. The hotel staff would not forward incoming calls to my room. I was in the middle of two real estate deals requiring contact with realtors, buyers, sellers, etc. NO RECEPTION!! While riding elevators I asked other […] hotel guests their reception experience: all were the same as mine. Will never go there again, would never recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to remain connected to the outside world. ALSO: Complete confusion as to who I was actually using to check into hotel. Can't even begin to explain. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fun Location - Very Overpriced"
I thought it would be fun to stay in the Panama City Beach area for a night before heading further down the coast. Unfortunately, the hotel was very overpriced ($200) for the accommodations. The room was pretty clean but smelled musty and sour. The common areas were very dirty. Then we had to pay a room cleaning fee ($69) that was not included in our […] Hotels.com pricing. The beach umbrella prices were raised to $40 for the Memorial day weekend and we had to pay for ice. Luckily for us, the beach was fun and the weather was incredible so we made the most of our time there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Seahaven not the actual hotel"
The service at seahaven was horrible , my room wasn't ready on time, my keys didn't work I went to get my keys reprogrammed 15 times in 3 days. Hidden fees are going to happen $200.00 for cleaning that I wasn't informed about. Then once I left I was charged $50 for damaged towels and ironing board cover. Supposedly there were pictures but I was told […] they cannot send them to me. So I stopped payment. Orgin is a great hotel but DO NOT book thru seahaven, book directly thru Orgin Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I won't stay again."
Our stay was horrible. Everything was broken and dirty. The floor in our room was covered in sand. We were charged 130 dollars when we got there for damages and it was non refundable whether or not we caused any damage. We also asked for more towels and were told we had to wash our own towels which I have never heard of EVER. The hotel is advertised […] to have ice makers, a theater, and an arcade. NONE of them worked. Also, the elevators were down most of our stay and when we saw the janitor he said no one even told him they were down. Our first night there we had to walk up 10 flights of stairs to get to our room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The upkeep of the hotel is terrible. Dirty,smelly elevators and the rooms are not being properly maintained. This trip is my last to this establishment.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nasty hotel. Carpet was disgusting. I never took my flip flops off in the room, shower curtain was gross, I was promised a beach front room, I got a room in the back of the hotel facing an RV park.

"ok for a weekend stay"
To be considered a luxury condo rental, it was more like a efficiency hotel. Way over priced for the room size and condition. Just cause it has crown moulding and tile floors, i wouldnt consider it a luxury condo. Great location and outside appeal, but only a decent interior upkeep.. and to think, this property was built in 2007..Genuine Expedia guest review
