I have stayed in a few beachcomber and they have always been really nice. The price is always decent and the rooms have always been clean. I would highly recommend. When ever we vacation we always try to find a beachcomber to stay in. The works have always been friendly and willing to help if needed.

The Beachcomber has a very good location in the heart of the beach area, with ALL units facing the water. Included in the price of the room is a limited, but free, continental breakfast from 7-10 each morning. It has conveniently located restrooms by the pool, and the pool is located beachside. We stayed in a 2-room unit with 2...

I called about a week before my check in date and asked for a room on a higher floor. Most reviews recommended to do so. When I showed up they put me on the second floor all the way in the corner, there was no view at all due to the trees. It was probably the room with the worst...

I had never stayed in PCB so I took a chance...With my 13 month old and her dad for a quick weekend beach trip, this hotel fits the bill. Affordable, Not too big, great location, everything you need and nothing you don't. Our view is beautiful and the room, while a little dated (painted cabinets, older carpet), has all the...

The hotel was really was clean but due to the lack of flooring updates and general updates it just gives the impression that it isn't clean. Great location...on the beach! They also have a nice pool. Adequate free parking, too. The breakfast left a little to be desired. Very limited items but they did have the items that we eat....
