Elevators were slow so we just took the stairs. Second day there stairways were closed for painting. Laundry facilities advertised on website but have been removed. Paid $40 additional for cleaning services and never got room cleaned all week. Very disappointing. We will stay somewhere else next time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is not on the beach"
Hotel is not on the beach, you must cross a busy street to access. There is a management company that is located across the street. You must check in and constantly go there to get toilet paper , towels. There are tons of extra fees for the rooms. This hotel is full of young guests. It seemed like spring break on the weekend. It was very noisy at night […] and we could not sleep. When we called the operator because people were running up and down the halls at 400 am they stated they would try to find security. The room key stopped working twice and we had to go across the street to have them fixed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The view is good but needs to be fixed and more presentableGenuine Expedia guest review
First, When I arrived to check in I found, that instead of having to pay $136 at time of arrival for cleaning, It was $193 dollars. I was also hit with a $500 cash deposit that I wasn't aware of. This is important information that a person should be made aware of, before booking a room. When we arrived, we were given an inventory list and told to return […] it within an hour. Doing this inventory really wasn't a problem, SINCE half the items listed were not in the room. We had to make several request for items that should have been in the room. If this is going to be required of a customer, the room should at least be stocked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Less Than anticipated"
Ad was misleading, it looked as though we would have an ocean "view" room. Instead we were on the very back of the property overlooking a bog or small swamp that was overgrown with brush . There was an overflowing trash can full of garbage with some falling to the floor that remained in front of the elevators on our floor that remained there for 2 days […] until we said something to the person at the front desk. We were unable to check in at the property itself and instead had to cross the street in order to get our keys etc.. The garage often had several cars taking up more than 2 spaces forcing us to park outside instead of inside. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Met my expectations and more!"
The condo itself was very nice and roomy! The building was very clean and everyone was very nice. The location was great! Walking distance to several restaurants and attractions! The ONLY negative is that we booked from hotels.com and the cleaning fee was slightly more than what was told to us. It's not a set amount, it is based on room size. And since […] we stayed in a smaller condo, it was only $20 more than I thought it was going to be. Overall we had a great experience! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rates were decent when we found them online. We expected what we were paying for was similar to the photos and ocean front like it displayed. That was a bit confusing. Until the point of arrival, we were looking forward to a semi spacey ocean front room, and were more than disappointed when we walked in. The back view of this condo is terrible. […] We walked outside maybe once and kept the curtains closed the rest of our stay. Trees and a swamp area is what you see. Aside from that, there were dents all in the walls, carpet stains, and unpleasant service from the workers and front desk ladies. Needless to say, we won't be staying here anytime in the future.

"Great hotel, Great view"
We absolutely loved the hotel. It was quiet, the bed was especially comfortable and the view we had was breathtaking. We had an amazing time and have already referred all of our friends to stay here next time they vacation. Only minor detail is the cleaning fee, we were there 5 days and our room was never cleaned. Thank Goodness we aren't messy peo […] ple! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall stay was pleasurable. My main issue, and it was a big issue, was housekeeping tried to come in unannounced while I was changing. When I say unannounced, I mean there was no knock, no "housekeeping" warning. They put the key in the slot and barged in. The only thing that prevented us from having a very awkward situation was I put the latch on […] our door. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
At check in was charged an additional $114.00 in additional fees, no daily housekeeping services, had to call for towel and linen exchanges. Will not stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
The condo in itself was nice, but had a difficult time getting results from the manager, front desk or maintenance department. I stayed three days with the garbage disposal reported out of service the first day, one television(which all need to be updated...ooolllllddd) didn't work and a tv remote was never delivered.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price"
Wireless internet & phone are NOT guaranteed to work since these are condos with individual owners- even if your room is advertised with free internet. Efficency kitchen is tiny!! Only a mini fridge. Room may face the parking lot! BEWARE you have to cross a busy street to get to the beach as well as to check in! Which was not very convenient. Cleaning […] fee, non-refundable damage fee, and taxes are all extra charges, usually over $100 when you check in. So you may not be getting a deal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Beach"
The hotel was across the street from the beach. The room had a small kithchen which would be nice for families, but even though they provide a coffee maker they do not give you coffee grinds. The room we stayed in did not have a good view. It was overseeing the trailer park and what appeared to be a swamp like pond. The king size bed was super comfy. […] There was an arcade room downstairs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was very disappointed with the hotel and service. we had to walk across the street to check in even though there was a front desk clerk inside the hotel. The tub was nasty when we checked in and HOTELS.com said that we only had to pay an additional $48. but we actually paid a non-refundable cleanup fee of $170. I will NEVER stay at this hotel and […] not happy with HOTELS.com right now. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice on outside but fees"
Lots of additional fees. No maid service until you leave. No dresser to put clothes in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Was a wonderful place to park and not drive"
Probly the best experience ever, location was conveniently centered at panama city beach, the hot tub never let us down, the staff was cool, not a bunch of rule nazis but at the same time did tell me no drinks at the hot tub once.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was perfect except for the fact that they make you check off a huge list when you arrive for things that shouldn't be missing and then they forget to explain that you have to be checked by an inspector before you check out and that even after you pay 150 dollars for a cleaning fee you still have to take out the trash and wash dishes or they […] charge you 50 dollars for each. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice room. Terrible customer service!"
We had a nice room with a great view, but between the check in and check out process it was a nightmare. The check in and check out times we were given from hotels.com were wrong. We had to wait an extra 3 hours before we could check in and once we finally were able to check in we had to provide a detailed list of every single thing in the room that […] we would be held accountable for if it was broken or went missing. So after our 18 hour car ride and 3 hour wait time to get into the room that was quite enjoyable. There was also an extra $225 fee we had to pay when we checked in that we had no knowledge of. Hotels.com said there would be free wifi. Nope. Only available on the first four floors apparently. We had issues with the toilets and sink and it took over a day for someone to come fix it for us. The check out process took over an hour and they tried to charge us for so many things that were not our fault. Do not stay here if you are young because the management will only try and take advantage of you. I know we are college students but there is no excuse for how poorly we were treated the entire week.

"Nice Hotel - Staff At "Seahaven" Office Is Poor"
I would first like to note that all staff directly (and specifically) connected with the ORIGIN BEACH RESORT exclusively, was excellent. I would give THEM 5 stars if I could. The Origin Beach Resort is managed under 2 separate entities, one of which being The Origin Beach Resort, and the other being Seahaven, who's office is located directly across […] the street from the Origins Resort. I would STRONGLY recommend that anyone booking this hotel through Expedia made sure that they were booking directly through the Origins Beach Resort and not through Seahaven Management. Seahaven provides their clients with a checklist (legal sized paper, printed on both sides) consisting of a "Pre-Check In" walk through that is required to be filled out and returned within the hour upon check in. This list is near impossible to accurately complete, as the exact same list is issued regardless of the unit / amenities being rented. I spend 20 minutes looking for an alarm clock that was not even provided with the room. Who has time for this, and furthermore, shouldn't the hotel be doing this for their guests PRIOR to their arrival? It is YOUR responsibility to figure out which items do or do not belong in your room. There was a $450.00 deposit on the room due to Spring Break. I was there on business and found out LATER that they should not have charged me the deposit in the first place (and didn't have to). Seahaven's security was rude and invasive. The room itself was good, clean & quiet. Good luck! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"My Little Weekend Stay at the Origin at Seahaven."
I was extremely disappointed with my stay at Origin at Seahaven. The Origin at Seahaven is marked as a three and an half star hotel, but clearly it is not. Three and an half star hotels have amenities such as business centers, restaurants, room service, lounges/bars, and routine housekeeping. This hotel has none of these amenities. The hotel is actually […] managed by two separate companies in which they do not talk to each other. The check-in for the Origin at Seahaven is not in the hotel, but you will not know until walk into the hotel, and front desk agent, for other company, tells you to go across the highway to check-in. It is beyond confusing. If you are an individual that requires internet for personal use or business this is “NOT” the place for you; the WI-FI is horrible. The company that is responsible for the hotel has no clue what the company across the street is use for their wireless network connection. The company across the highway uses one wireless network connection that is very weak and becomes disconnected every few minutes. The wireless network connection is even worse for the company that actually manages the hotel. Also, in order to utilize a luggage cart you must leave an ID card. This was a little strange to me, but I accepted their rule, and gave the front agent desk my ID card. Ironically, the next morning, I saw an associate of the hotel using a luggage cart as dolly to carry maintenance supplies. I will definitely NOT be returning back to this hotel.

"Not really worth the price"
We booked this room for one night after a last-minute decision to the beach. We do not believe it was worth the price that we paid especially for the cleaning fee. When we booked in the front desk agent had no idea what he was doing and it took more than 20 minutes to check in. Once we got to the room Arcese did not work twice we had to go down to the […] desk which is about a five minute walk across the street. The front desk manager was very helpful though but it did waste an hour of our time when we could of been enjoying our room. The hotel is also not beachfront it is a beach view with a streets and buildings between the hotel and the beach. So instead of hearing the waves of the ocean we heard the humming of cars all night. The room was clean and nice but again not for the price we had to pay. We will not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"not a bargain"
There was an additional charge for cleaning and room insurance not properly disclosed at time of booking. there was no maid service ( At ALL !!!). The room was OK, but not for the price and lack or service. Very displeased with this expedia experienceGenuine Expedia guest review
I did not enjoy my stay at all. This is my fourth attempt at submitting this review because hotels.com keeps rejecting my honest attempts to warn people about booking a stay at this hotel. if this one doesn't get accepted I'll keep trying. The problem is the price but since I'm not allowed to say how much you'll be charged I'll say this, if you take […] what you are expecting to pay and multiply it by a whole number larger than 1 you will pay that much or more.

"Too Much Extra Costs"
We only stayed one night but still had to pay $170 in extra charges. Expedia did not make it plain about these extra charges until after you booked and it was too late. It was non-refundable. The room had dirty carpets and not very nice towels. It looked like a very popular spring break room. The beds were nice though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth it"
I was under the impression I was renting a 1 bedroom condo but it was actually just another hotel room. The extra fees were excessive and unreasonable for the stay. The view was overlooking a swamp and trailer park. When I did have interaction with the staff they were usually upset that I was interrupting their smoke break. Not a place I will stay […] again.

"Great roomy place to stay for Ironman Florida"
Was not sure what to expect and got a huge clean room with everything working for a super low price. You usually only get one. Love the view from the 13th floor and was only 4.54 miles from the host hotel. We were able to jog to the event or park at the Walmart with no issues.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I wasn't expecting the fees"
The day before we left I checked the reviews and saw that there were going to be extra fees, I didn't expect those to be $200 for our 2 day stay. I did check the email that was sent and in small print under the total it did show there were fees charged by the hotel but I'm not sure if this is something that I would have seen before confirming the room. […] The room had a great view of the ocean and was spacious, huge kitchen and easy access to the pool area (we never got around to using it). One room had multiple outlets that didn't work (we checked the breakers, didn't call it in as we weren't in the room that much), floors were rather dirty but it was overall nice.

"One night stay"
The CONDO was nice, I don't think this is even a hotel. Be careful when booking. We booked online for $80 for one night and upon arrival, we were told we owed an ADDITIONAL $80 for a cleaning fee and a reservation fee. NO WHERE in our confirmation or booking online is this information clear when booking. The condo itself is very nice and super convenient, […] and I would absolutely stay there again, but not if the additional fees are included. Luckily the front desk waived the additional fees because he looked at our confirmation and agreed that it was ridiculous that we were not made aware of fees that would essentially double the booking price.

"Run, run fast"
Where do I start? Probably with check in. I paid hitels.com $110.00 for a 1 nite stay, paid in full. Upon check in I was informed of a $40.00 non-refundable insurance waiver fee, PLUS a cleaning fee of $60.00, with taxes and surcharges I owed $113.43, making my 1 nite stay over $210.00! This would not have been so disappointing IF the hotel was on the […] beach as I asked and was told it was. It is scross the street. Not a far walk, but also room was nasty. Ripped carpet, writing (literally) on the walls, oh did I mention the view!?! A mobile home park and a parking lot out back, lovely. I definitely would not stay here again & after 2 bad hotels. Com experiences, I wont be using them anymore either. Take it from me, book your room directly with the location you are staying and cut the pirating middle men out of yhe pucture! Save time, money and aggrevation! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not as Advertised"
I payed to stay at Origin at Seahaven and when I arrived I was informed that I had to pay additional fees for cleaning which totaled more than the cost of staying there for an evening. The staff was kind enough to change me to a hotel at first I was happier with this because it was actually beach front (Origin at Seahaven is not beach front). Because […] it was a work trip I needed wi-fi which unfortunately was only in the lobby (this is true of Origin at Seahaven as well). The hotel was part of the Seahaven brand and it was sketchy... there was mold in the kitchenette area, the tub was holding water, the balcony door would not fully close, and overall I did not feel like it was a safe environment.

"Nice hotel right across from the beach and Sharky."
Great experience. Upgraded to a beach front view and was not told that it was a side view. Disappointed by that. Still a nice view overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff was non exsistant. Calling the front desk was useless because no one ever picked up. Ridiculous cleaning fee on top of the rates. The one staff member that I saw was the maid who was rude and confrontational.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel close to beach"
Overall, I still rate this hotel relatively high. This is the 3rd time I have stayed at this property. Each time, I've been in a different room of course. In total, this is the least pleasing stay. The linens were rough and looked half dirty. Would suggest some fabric softner and newer, less discolored linens. The shower in this unit left much to be […] desired. Little pressure, miserable shower head, not all that hot. Would suggest looking into this; could be an easy, quick, cheap fix. A note or standard card in the check in materials regarding where ice can be purchased would be helpful. I know somewhere it was said that ice could be purchased in your store on site. Never saw any hours or location of said store. Not to be completely negative. The bed was comfy, the kitchen was stocked well enough. The property overall is still a great place to stay for the value received. The staff where you check in were nice and helpful. Just a few suggestions above to improve and keep people coming back.

Nice clean rooms Friendly customer serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is my first stay at The Origin at Seahaven. I was pleasantly surprised. This was a last minute reservation that I made for a girls weekend away. The room was very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, close to Pier Park. For future stays, I will make sure that I request a beach view. That was the only thing wrong, […] we were located in the back of the motel. The standing water kind of had a smell. We joked that we could see water, West Bay at least. LOL! All in all we enjoyed the weekend and our stay at the Seahaven. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what it used to be..."
We stay at Origin before Seahaven took over. The difference was night and day. They offer room service only when you ask for it although you pay for it. They hit you with this charge when you check in. This is an addition $113 ontop of your reservation fee that they don't tell you about. When we walked off the elevator ( the one with the invalid license […] ) we immediately noticed carpet patches randomly throughout the hallways. We opened our room door and discovered that the entry wall appeared to have never been cleaned. The middle of the bed was sunken in so the sleeping experience was terrible. We will not book ORIGIN again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice complex but room missing some basics"
The condo complex was better than expected. It was not directly on the beach but it was so close that it felt like it was. Pool and hot tub were excellent. It would be nice if the grills were gas instead of charcoal.The condo itself was so sparsely supplied that we had to buy cooking utensils. 2 burner stove would barely cook hamburgers. The room was […] nice but so many simple details that make for a comfortable stay were missing. (Shower curtain not long enough for the tub, mop was filthy, unit only had 1 skillet and 1 very small pot) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near Pier Park, not overly crowded"
This was our third time at Orgins. We love the location. It is one mile from Pier Park, but not near a bunch of other condos so it isn't as crowded on the beach as some areas are. Try Sharkys across the street, good food and great atmosphereGenuine Expedia guest review

The room was spacious, clean, and looked like the pictures. We upgraded to a beautiful view of the ocean, sunset, and Front Beach Rd. where fabulous fireworks popped off Friday and Saturday night at 8:15 pm. We called for new towels daily as the unit was owner maintained and they were delivered promptly. The kitchen came stocked with everything I needed […] to cook a 5 star dinner for my friends. The pool and huge Jacuzzi was awesome and overlooked the beach, which was directly across the street. If the locals were a little more friendly, it would have been a perfect vacation.
