"A picture lies a thousand words."
Pictures are extremely deceiving. You will pay a one hundred and fifty dollar cleaning fee for an already dirty room. You will also encure a fourty dollar non-refundable, fee for damages. The room we were issued was trashed. Cracks in the walls and in the furnature. The room smelled like a cat had urinated on every part of the carpet. I would r recommend […] this room as an alternative to sleeping on the beacc Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful view from the pool"
The hotel was very beautiful and clean. The beach is across the street, so it is possible to have ocean view from the room, but there is still a little walk required to get to the beach. Allow plenty of time for checking out, waiting on the elevator can be a nightmare for the high rise hotels. Overall, great place to stay. The view from the pool area […] is beautiful.

Carpet throughout the hotel is so dirty! As well in the room. Sofa bed was horrible, my kids could feel the springs! Kitchen towels were so disgustin, bad smell. Walls were dirty. Not a very clean hotel. Staff are not very helpful. Overall a very bad experience and hopefully someone will read this and do something about itGenuine Expedia guest review
Lots of extra charges added to room cost, broken item in condo. Workers using saw at 8 am. Staff not too helpful or nice. Room had no furniture .... Misrepresented in pictures.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was convenient to go places"
First off, the hide a bed was broken on one side, and on the other side the matress had a tear in it. The scene from the balcaony overlooked a swampy looking area and the air conditioner. From the pictures we had thought we would be on the beach. Last but not least by any means, there was over a $100 cleaning fee, whether we left the room clean or not. […] I explained we are resort owners, and always leave the room clean, have never paid a cleaning fee before, they said everyone has to pay it. Over all, I would have preferred to stay at a hotel, I never thought I would ever say that. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for a week end. Hotel, room, beach were great. The only thing I found wrong was the elevators were super slow. And they charged a extra 125. For some cleaning fee. They charged that before I even got in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet loft above the sand"
I was pleased with the layout and cleanliness of the place. Access was quick to all elevators. I had no problems keeping my bicycles inside the room. The space was very quiet and sedate. The furniture and overall design was well suited for my needs. Check in and check out were fast and pleasant. I hope to obtain another stay here next summer. This was […] worth the effort and modest cost. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was slightly mislead when I made this reservation. I was under the impression or assumed that "Oceanview" meant "on the ocean". No...this hotel is across Fromt Beach Road and NOT on the beach. They did have a walkway for their own beach access which was appreciated. Check-in was a nightmare. We had no instruction on which set of elevators (there are […] 3-4 sets of elevators) to use to get to our room. We ended up across the hotel from where we needed to be with a cart full of luggage. The carpets are about 15 years old, full of stains, and need to be replaced. The walls need to be painted and scrubbed. It just was not very clean especially with the extra amount I pad for a cleaning fee. I did enjoy the size of the room as it was quite spacious. Overall the hotel worked for what we needed it for (Bachelorette Party), but I wouldn't stay again. Too many other hotels that are better quality on the beach for roughly the same price.

"Origin @ Seahaven"
It's was ok, a little priced for the stay, but excellent view of the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
The $115.00 cleaning and damage fee needs to be included, so the customer doesn't end up paying double the room price unexpectedly.Genuine Expedia guest review
I didn't think it was worth the cost especially when you added in the additional 120 bucks "cleaning fee" that was due upon check-in. The room was tiny so not sure why it even warranted a "cleaning fee". Not to mention, it was cleaned one time while we were there. Checking in and getting towels was also a pain as the office was across the street instead […] of downstairs as they managed the sites across the street. It was a hassle to get towels each day. The pool was also very small and didn't have enough chairs for as big of site. The access cards rarely worked. The kids eat free coupons were nice but weren't valid with appetizers even though the appetizers cost more than a few of the entrees. The TV was an old square box and there was no "oven". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Condo at Origin"
Inconvenient registration across the street and not very nice staff. Did not like the separate cleaning fee...totally caught me off guard, as it was in addition to the room rate . We had supposed exclusive beach access, but has to 40.00 for the beach chairs! Room itself was awesome...only saving grace for this rental. Elevators were slow and crowded […] and all but the actual condo was junky. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Never again, and I'm not a cpmplainer"
Two words: Stay Away. This building was built in 2007 amd it looks like it was built in 1980. The pictures on the website look beautiful but this place is ghetto. To check in you have to go across the street. Our two bedroom, two bath place that we booked on hotels.com was actually two seperate rooms. Flat screen TV's? The TV's are the huge TV's circa […] 1985. When I asked the front desk about this, the guy said they do have a flat screen...After paying for the room and additional fees online, expect to receive a $130 cleaning bill and a non-refundable $40 fee for damage. I talked to a woman on the beach who owns a unit, and she said she hates staying in her own unit. You better plan on leaving super early on check out day. They only have two luggage carts and the elevators are a joke. I am not a complainer by nature, but this is the worst place I have ever stayed at. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a good stay.."
To register / check in.. was not good. .. You can't check in with the hotel that you r staying at....you have to leave the hotel where u r staying and walk to another location to check in .. also if you need anything for your stay ... my room keys would never work!! Three times I had to walk across street to get new key for my room! Elevators are very […] slow ...Would not stay there again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms are nice but the furniture is very old and nasty lookingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst Place EVER"
I did not read any reviews until after I paid in advance. A HUGE mistake. First of all, the check in clerks are not friendly or helpful. I had to ask where to park. The parking deck is a joke. It is very confusing. The arrows are all faded, so you will more than likely miss a turn. When we got off the elevator, my boys and I thought the same thing "this […] reminds me of the hotel in the Shinning". At first glance, the room seems nice. Then we discovered the sheets on the bed were dirty and the fold out sofa bed still had the sheets from the previous guest. We decided to go to the beach across the street, but you need your room key to open the door to get to the beach. The check in clerk failed to tell us that. The ONLY thing the check in clerk did mention to me was if you need anything just dial 0. Don't bother dialing 0 because no one will answer. I am not a very picky person, but this place is not very clean. The description of my room was a washer and dryer and a refrigerator. Did not have one. Just a mini fridge. Please also know that when you do get there you will be paying at least $100 or more for taxes, cleaning and reservation fees. By the time you add all that in, you might as well stay at the Holiday Inn on the beach. Which by the way, has great service and a hot breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Origin has changed for the WORSE! Stay Away!"
We couldn't have been more disappointed by our most recent stay. The property was filthy. The elevator buttons were coated in a film of grime & one elevator even had a racial slur scratched into it that remained visible for our entire stay. The trash cans in the hallways were all overflowing & the carpeting was absolutely filthy, they need to be ripped […] up & replaced throughout the building. Light fixtures & sconces were crooked & many were missing their covers completely- leaving wiring & bulbs exposed. Our hallway was never vacuumed, a crushed cherio that was in front of our door upon check-in was still there upon check-out a week later. Inside of the unit: curtains were either missing or barely hanging. The couch was covered with crumbs. Mold was growing inside of the showers. Bedding was dingy & questionable. Red pasta sauce was splattered in the fridge. TV didn't work & after a visit by maintenance & being told by mngt that "there's nothing that we can do" I discovered that the coax was simply connected improperly and fixed the problem myself. Room phone didn't work. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I reserved a condo on Expedia that had full kitchen, living room, and a bedroom. When I got there, they put me in a studio with a kitchenette. When I complained to the staff they were rude and stated that I need to pay an additional $110 for what I already reserved. The new room we got was "ok". They were pretty cheap on a few things such as toilet […] paper as they only gave 1 roll at a time. I had to walk down to the office in order to get more toilet paper, trash bags, and fresh towels. Overall, the hotel was average and overpriced. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Two set of management , very difficult for us"
trash not dispose off linen and towels across the street check in and check out with seahaven but we stay at Origen Two different companies mad at each other poor maintenanceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Read the fine print"
When booking our family trip to PCB for July 2013, I read over ALL possible rooms/hotels that could accommodate our family of six, and I am glad I did. Settled on Origin at Seahaven, a two bd/2bath condo, with a full kitchen. The check in process was annoying. One lady working the desk, long line, and their computers were down. The man in front of me […] at check-in was a poor fellow who didn't read the fine print. He thought he was booked at the 'luxury' hotel that Origin owns which we stayed in. He didn't. I'll agree with him that the information here is slightly misleading. Yes, he booked a condo, BUT it was not the one he thought he'd be getting. Just make sure when booking that you read over the details. If the price sounds too good to be true for a luxury rental, it probably is. Origin owns three properties there. Double check that you are getting the right one, DO NOT go off of pictures online as reference like this man did. Our room: The hotel is okay. When I hear the word 'luxury' I think five star. I'd give this place a three star rating. For the cleaning fee I paid, on top of my rental fees, I thought it'd be spotless. Nope. Food debris on the ceiling in the kitchen. Unwashed dishes placed back in cabinets. Floor needed a vacuuming. Mirrors were dirty. I read beforehand that parking costs money, it didn't. This place is centered in a nice location, that was my favorite detail of this hotel. We enjoyed our trip, but I think if we go back, I'd stay elsewhere Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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!!!!

"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...
