We just spent three nights at the Beach Tower and as always it was an enjoyable experience...clean, affordable rooms, friendly staff, and right on the beach with no long boardwalk. We are looking forward to our next stay at Beach Tower.

Our family has been visiting Panama City Beach for the last 10 years and we usually just stay in a different place every time. After staying at Beach Tower Resort that will no longer be the case. Everything from the minute we arrived, up until the minute we left, the staff was professional, helpful, and nice. Our room was great,... More

This place was clean and affordable and directly on the beautiful beach. We had a private balcony and a kitchen that we used only for breakfast and lunch. We were on the sixth floor and used the stairs a lot because we are scared of getting stuck in the elevator at hotels!!! The views of the beach from our balcony... More

After searching online (up and down the beach) to find a great stay at a great price I happened upon the Beach Tower Resort Motel. This rare "Mom & Pop" motel offers the best location with the best value. Their prices are extremely reasonable and there are no hidden fees or "surprises." I looked at several other properties and almost... More

This is a standard, pretty clean hotel in a great location right on the beach. All the rooms have balconies facing the beach. We liked our king suite with a couch. It did have a fridge but no microwave. I know this place has come a long way since they started remodeling a few years ago. Great rates too. Clean... More

We lucked into staying here and am so glad. The staff was the nicest and friendliest we'd experienced during our 10 day vacation. This hotel is locally owned and operated and seeks to provide its guests with the best & affordable accommodations possible. Each room has a private balcony & faces the ocean. The water was crystal clear; there is... More

For this to be a motel, it was nice and clean. It was exactly what I expected it to be, not the Marriott but not a roach motel. Great location (right on the beach) and friendly, helpful staff.
