My wife and I stayed 3 days at the end of October. Upon arriving the parking lot, we noticed the hotel was clean and well kept, parking was easy and convenient to the lobby. At check in, the front desk people were courteous, informative and eager to help us with any questions we had. Our room was on the 5th... More

Only issue we had was not hotel related. We came down for a birthday present for my daughter and it fell the same time as "thunder beach", several thousand Harley's in PCB. other than that it was great.

We stayed at Beach Tower by the Sea over Columbus Day weekend. Each room looks out onto the beach and offers spectacular views, has a kitchenette with basic cookware and has two queen beds. The staff was friendly and offered recommendations about the area. The drawbacks included hard to open exterior doors, a slow elevator, poor wifi and sad continental... More

I will say I was very impressed when we arrived because I wasn't expecting a lot. The lobby was nicely decorated, they had ample amount of parking and they even let us check in at lunchtime. The location was great and they had a nice pool and our stay included a simple breakfast (cereal, muffins & yogurt). As for the... More

This was my first time staying at Beach Tower or a By The Sea property. First of all from the call to make reservations to the time we checked out every employee was kind and had a smile on their face. Now the first thing I look at is the shower. I am 6ft and most showers are short but... More

The hotel was super nice and the staff could not have been friendlier. Rooms were in great condition..the only issue is the mattresses are extremely firm; that may be the only thing to prevent us from staying here again.

I give this two stars, one for each of my dirty feet from barely setting foot in the room and walking on the carpet. It's a wonder that our bath towels didn't fall into the toilet since there was no lid. But on a positive note, the shower water pressure will take your skin off if you stood there long... More

Hotel looks nice from the outside and has a very friendly staff. However, building and rooms are in desperate need of remodeling, everything is very old, doors are squeaking and carpet is a dirty. The breakfast is a bit poor, no toast, fresh fruit or oatmeal. Pool is nice and the beach in front of the hotel is absolutely fabulous!!!

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was perfect! Right on the beach. They provide a simple, quick breakfast. The kitchenette was nice for storing and making snacks. We enjoyed drinks on the balcony, on the beach and in the pool. Very close to many shops & restaurants. Great for a little getaway!
