I just returned from staying at the Beach Tower Resort Motel. My son and I had a fantastic time. The staff was friendly and the motel was great. Our room was perfect with a great view of the beach and the sunsets at night. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay on a visit to Panama City... More

Gorgeous view of the beach and sea but that is also the only good thing about this motel. The room was not very clean and everything was old and worn out. The fridge was rusty and condensation running down on the outside. There was food left in the fridge from previous guests. Carpet was filthy. No space at all in... More

I have been staying here for years & will never stay anywhere else! I have a tight budget & extremely particular man who has refused many rooms because of cleanliness.

I really hate leaving a bad review because the view from the rooms is fantastic. However, that can be said of many other beachfront hotels in this area. In addition to poor room conditions, most of the customer service here is terrible! We arrived on a Sunday evening, and were given room 308. We asked if they had another room... More

The motel itself is very clean & accommodating. Everything was just as described on the motel website. Beach access was perfect! The only thing I did not like was some of the guest were rude & when reported to the front desk nothing was done to resolve the issues...but they were handled none the less. Everything else was great!
