We stayed here for spring break and it was great. It is located right next to Spinnaker and La Vela (the two biggest night clubs). Everyone was right out in front of the hotel on the beach, it was the popular place to be. The hotel is a reasonable price and was clean. It comes fully stocked with dishes and... More

I went with my husband and two boys. Andrea was very accommodating Room #511. My parents were supposed to stay earlier in the year. My mother got sick and were not able to take advantage of the room. Andrea allowed us to use the room at a later date! It was a nice view of the beach. A small kitchen,... More

We have been renting at TOTG since 1997 from different owners and from the same owner in room 603 every year for a few years now. We go about 3 times a summer and love it. We do not like the high rises so we opt to stay here out of any of the places on the beach. The room... More

We rented Room 711 from a Private owner, Room 711 was a very good room, clean and great furniture, Small full kitchen, just the right size for 4 people, and your right on the beach. Now for the bad, the building is an old dirty place, lost of rust and broken things. Same dead bug was laying in the hall... More

Over 5 years going to PCB.....WE only stayed at Top Of The Gulf because we wanted to take a weekend trip and it was close to bars and clubs. This was a BIG mistake. The unit looks nice from the pictures but once we got there the owner said we can check in at anytime. The room was not cleaned... More

We stayed in condo #809, and it was quite cozy and comfortable. The owner, Stacy Pollard, was very friendly and helpful. We had good weather even with tropical storm Andrea skirting the area. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and I loved that the condo is right on the beach. We have already made arrangements to stay again next year. Thank... More

We stayed in unit 821 for our late spring break first week of April. Even though we got some rain, the spacious feel of the condo didn't leave us feeling cramped like you always expect in that situation. The kitchen is small and doesn't take up much space, but is FULLY operational. We were able to cook meals all week.... More

We visited last month and requested to stay in Unit 811 again because our visit last summer was so much fun there. We had a great time, very clean room with enough beds for the whole family, and a full open kitchen with updates was a plus. It's situated on the top floor with an ocean view between the condos,...

I agree that its all based on individual owners as to what kind of room/rate you receive. My family of 4 stayed in 611. The view was amazing. Small, but effecient. Clean. AMAZINGLY priced! NO hidden fees. LOVED the murphy beds in our condo. We also loved the location of top of the gulf. The owners gave me lots of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Inn at St Thomas Square on Panama City Beach is a truly unique vacation destination. The Inn is located just across the street and sits along the magnificent Grand Lagoon. The Villas and Plaza are not a busy, crowded high-rise condominium. It is actually a European Villas and Plaza with all the comforts of home set in a quaint, relaxing atmosphere. The Inn is one of only a few locations with a boat dock along Grand Lagoon. Grand Lagoon will give you easy access to St. Andrews Bay, The Gulf of Mexico, and Shell Island.There are several floor plans to choose from that accommodates 2 to 8 people. If you are traveling as a couple, family or group, rowers, triathletes, baseball, softball, cheerleaders, divers or bikers, we have rentals to fit every budget. All Villa’s and Plaza units have fully equipped kitchens and all but the studios have a washer/dryer. Though The Inn is across the street from the beach, it only takes a minute to walk across the street to the open sugar white sands and pitch your gear for a fun filled day of sun. We are within walking distance to Club LaVela, Spinnaker, Emerald Falls Family Entertainment, and Hammer Head Fred’s. There is a Mexican bar and grill on the property, a hair and nail salon and Panama City Beach Winery, Gift shop that has a large selection of the best Florida Citrus wines available. They have wine tasting daily – our top pick is the Mango. ... more   less
