I stay here everytime I come down to Panama City Beach Florida. This is the best deal you can get ,and a very clean and no nonsense run establishment!All rooms overlook the gulf and have real comfy + clean beds. The units with kitchens have everything you need to cook in- room and save .on eating out.Friendly staff. Heated pool. Tiki bar Close to everything as it's about in the center of everything here in PCB. Thanks to all the staff for making me feel at home!! Seeya in the spring/summer!!.

Room Tip: All rooms are sweet and overlook the gulf!

We stayed twice in 2 months and the stay was great each time! OUR FIRST STAY (and I was really worried because I had no idea what to expect! because of our budget we've been disappointed with very unclean rooms at OTHER places) WAS WONDERFUL with a squeaky CLEAN room, very unique furnishings, great balcony view, and nice people. Carrie and JR were very kind and helpful throughout our whole stay and moved us to return 2 months later. You wake up to fresh coffee/hot chocolate downstairs every morning with all the creamer you want. It's walking distance to a lot of fun places, with paddle boards for rent right across the street. Lots of fun things to do on the beach as well, like parasailing for first-timers like us! Fabulous!! By our second visit Beach Tower had rebuilt the small ramp to the beach and even added a large beautiful deck and 2 picnic tables along with a grill to use, AND an outside wash basin and table for those who enjoy fishing. Various renovations had been done which made it even more inviting! We didn't get to use the pool, but it looked clean and inviting and other people seemed to be really enjoying themselves swimming. There's a nice covered outside sitting area under the building to relax and chitchat. It's walking distance to the pier for you diehard fishermen (or fisherwomen, lol!). I mean, wow, for the price, what more could you ask?! We can't wait to return!

Dear 2nd time visitor,

I would like to personally "thank you" for writing the Beach Tower a very nice and in-depth review. I am pleased that you decided to return after your first visit. We do have quiet a large percentage of repeat guest, and consider it one of the highest compliments a property can receive. This is our 2nd year of owning the Beach Tower. Last year during the Fall/Winter season we began a renovation on the Tower. What we did not get compete prior to Spring of 2013, we continued at the end of the 2013 season. We are a small property, but pride ourselves in trying to deliver our guest a clean, comfortable, affordable place to stay when they come to the beach. The employees of The Beach Tower, have been with the business for many years. They enjoy their jobs and look forward to serving our guests from season to season. Once again, thank you for taking the time for the very nice review, and we hope to see you again this next year. Sharon McLaughlin, Owner

but I feel compelled to write this one because after all it was the reviews that convinced me to book my stay at the BTR. I couldn't be happier with my choice. The location was perfect. It was right on the beach and convenient to everything. Our room was VERY CLEAN and comfortable. The view from our balcony absolutely beautiful. The kitchenette made the whole trip more affordable. Everyone on staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay at this property again.

Excellent motel, reasonable rates, friendly staff, rooms have excellent air conditioners, have stayed at BTR several times and have no complaints at all. The pool is clean and is beachside. EasyE beach rentals serve this motel for renting beach chairs, watercrafts, banana boat rides and parasailing, this staff too is very polite and treat you like a customer. This motel is ideal for couples or a small family, just remember this is a motel room and not a large condo you are renting. When its just my wife and I we do not even consider staying anywhere else.

I stayed a Beach Tower twice in the last six months. The beds are comfortable and clean, the motel itself is very clean and recently remodeled. Each room has its own private balcony, and nicest attentive staff possible. Parking is great, very well lit and secure. Motel is very secure and quiet at night.Loud parties at night arent tolderated and that's fine by me. Its enjoyable to just sit on the balcony at night and listen to the waves. The pool is very clean and also heated. Well worth the money for a great place to stay right on the beach. I will be going back next month! Convenient to everything.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are excellent. The Two queen bed with the frig is an excellent choice and right on the money!
