“Quick end of the school year trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Everything was nice at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. I liked the fact that we had more than one pool to use and that the beach was only a few steps away.

I read a lot of reviews for this motel, some good some bad. Overall not a bad place to stay. IF you are staying in to Cabana's (these walk right out on beach) if you have AT&T you will not get service. The Wi-Fi at this motel is iffy, was told that hard for signal to go thru concrete and rebar in the Cabana rooms. (Wonder how it works in say the Days Inn's). Good Wi-Fi signal if sitting on the beach. Anyway back to the rooms, We stayed in 107 , 1 bed sep area, 1 bed in front part of room. old outdate furniture other than that, Room was clean spacious. Did see dead roaches outside of room, did not see any in room. Very limited parking at motel. Overflow parking across the street. No breakfast or coffee in room.

Room Tip: cabana are beach walk out, there are room that are at pool level that have a great view just not bea...

This by far is my favorite place to stay at in PCB-- make sure u get a room in the tower-- private balcony overlooking the gulf--prices vary but let me assure u, it's worth it!! Great location too,, close to shopping at Pier Park and dining options too and within walking distance....Enjoy

When you have a beachfront site, guests have a certain expectation. I don't just want a view. I want to hear and smell the ocean. This place blew it. The bed was at the front of the suite - too close to the street/parking lot, so we woke to the beep-beep-beep of the crane carrying the painter to the top floor at about 7:45 a.m. If the sleeping area was at the back end - and there had been a slider or screen window, at least - we could've slept to the lullaby of the surf that pounded all night.
Water in the shower could have boiled shrimp. Way too hot.
Toilet paper was behind a sitter, low to the floor. You need to do a yoga pose just to grab it.
There was no shampoo, not even a clock.
But the rate was reasonable and the afternoon staff friendly. Not so the morning crew.
We won't be back.

Room Tip: If you want an ocean view, ask for the higher floors because the windows facing the beach on the low...

We just got back from a trip to PCB. We stayed on 3rd floor at the Tower and we LOVED IT!!!! We will NEVER stay anywhere else. We took a 4 year old, and the pool was heated and perfect for kids. They always have a bigger pool for the bigger kids. Great view, Friendlly staff, and it is not highway robbery. I would highly reccommend this place!

I paid 76ish a night in may. This was the best value for the money for me. The other places were out of my price range and I am pleasantly surprised by how not awful it is. The room is small but hey its cheap. My room does view the beach which is pretty cool. The bathroom ran some dirty water when I first turned on the water but I let it run and its been clear. The sheets have some weird black dots all in them but beyond that no troubles. My neighbors are quiet, the beach is lovely, all the flowers everywhere smell nice. Its no five star but great for the money!
