Room space is really tight in Panama City and Padre Island is filling fast. Both these markets usually reach capacity by early March, but rooms are being booked a little earlier this year. This increased demand may be due to the requirement for passports or recent cold weather,
If you have already tried Travelocity or Orbitz and had no luck, try contacting some of the hotels directly. If you are not sure what hotels to contact, check the hotel or condo offerings on the major Spring break tour operators websites. If the hotel you call does not have space, ask for a recomendation.
The spring Break tour operators try to book most of the hotel and condo space during the season. So, if you can't find a room, or don't want to hassle with trying to find one call a tour operator. If all else fails, you can generally find a hotel listing at the local chamber of commerce or tourism office. You can try going down the list and cll each hotel. some listing will indicate if a hotel is "Spring Break Friendly".
