Laketown Wharf in Panama City Beach is by far the best place to stay in North Florida. First it is directly on the beach, 2nd it is in a great location with all types of restaurants, go carts, amusement areas, Ripleys, Wonderworld, etc. It is right on the beach with beautiful views, balconies, and amenities. The rooms are amazing, granite... More

Because of the elevator issues, we checked-in and checked-out on a Wednesday. This worked very well. I guess since it was later in August, there were not as many people at the resort. We only had elevator issues on Saturday but it was a minor inconvenence. The other days were no problem. The walk to the beach was a little... More

The condo we stayed in was very nice. Spacious and great layout. Even though the building is across the street from the beach we still got a beach view. It was weird to use Pineapple Willys to cross over to the beach though. The most frustrating part of our stay was all the walking. We ended up taking the stairs... More

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Laketown Wharf resort. Our condo looked just like the pictures online. The elevators were not an issue for us. We took the stairs maybe 3 times during our 4 day trip because the elevators were a little slow but this was no problem for us. I liked all the pools, just... More

Rooms - awesome, spacious, clean. We rented the one bedroom two bath with bunk beds - 9th floor, perfect for two adults, and one/two children. Elevators - HOT, small, and not near enough of them to accommodate for all the guest - we took stairs majority of the time. Facility - MASSIVE - beautiful pleaces to sit and relax, all... More

I love this place. It is very nice and convenient to everything. I have stayed here once a year for the last 3 years and I must admit the elevator wait time is shorter now vs. Last year. Sundays seemed the worst due to everyone checking in and out but I would definitely stay here again and again!

This is a great place to stay if you are not going to be coming and going. The elevator wait was sometimes twenty minutes, in little alcoves that had NO air movement. It felt like a sauna waiting for and in the elevators. The room was very spacious and clean. had two bedrooms plus two bunk beds. It was perfect... More

We decided to go with some friends and their kids to Panama City over our original location. They told us they heard about this place and it wasn't expensive. After looking at many of the photos and things to do in the area we agreed. Once we arrived, I though this was going to be a cool place. Well to... More

Having read the cautionary reviews about the elevators, we requested a room on the 11th floor--easily high enough for a beautiful beach view, but low enough to walk down the stairs if necessary. Our room was 1108, just two doors down from the south end elevators and conveniently located beside the south parking garage. We do plan to return and... More
