We found this on bookings.com. We were a company of 4. The room was ok..nothing special. Very close access to the beach and a good location overall. Close to restaurants, shops and entertainment.. The pool was pretty small for such a big building.

For complete transparency, we stayed in a friend's condo they allowed us to use for free. Our particular unit, an efficiency condo was clean & nicely appointed. Negative review is for the complex as a whole. Property is one of the older complexes in PCB. Only one elevator worked during our stay. It's a "pet friendly" property but had a... More

Rented here through vacasa. The room was old but well maintained. It could have been cleaner. The master bed had dirty sheets on it, we could tell they weren't changed from the previous guest. We found two toe nail clippings on the rug (nasty!!!!). There was hair on the extra blankets and dish towels, mold on the shower curtain and... More

The room was ok but the floor was dirty and we had to keep our socks on. Only one burner worked on the stove and the knobs kept popping off. The lamp shades were cracked and the curtains had red juice stains on them. We only had five towels and had to wash them several times in the laundry room... More

Great condo's on the beach with nice deep pool for kids young and old. Great location, not too crowded. Rented via VRBO website and had great experience with owner and room was not too expensive compared to "EVERYTHING" else in PCB. Loved our week here with my 10 and 12 year olds.

We stayed at the Top of the Gulf Condos Unit #116 for an entire week between June 13th to June 18th. I traveled with my wife, kids and my father. We enjoyed our stay and were sad at the end of the week because it was time to go home. We have stayed here before so staying here again was... More

When I attempted to book a unit through the RA website there was a problem booking. So I called and found that unit was not available. With great reservation and the need to have a place to stay for a dive trip, I was talked into renting a unit at The Top of Gulf. I expressed my concerns with the... More

This was the worst vacation ever. First, the persona we rented this from stated it was pet friendly, we called to confirm and everything and when we arrive at the Top of the Gulf, after driving 13 hours, we were immediately stopped and told pur dogs were jot allowed. But she allowed us to stay for the night. Later that... 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
