Dear Piedmont, AL,

Thank you for staying with us recently at The Beach Tower in Panama City Beach. We appreciate the compliments regarding our clean rooms, clean pool and mentioning "Starsky & Hutch". These two housekeepers have been with us here for several years. They really do enjoy their jobs. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to accommodate you while visiting our beautiful beaches.

This will be our third year staying at Beach Tower! We absolutely love it! It could use a little updating, but for the price and the kindness of the staff you can't beat it! We look forward to staying here every year! :)

Dear third time guest,

Just a quick note to say "thank you" for the review regarding your third stay at The Beach Tower. We started a renovation in 2012, but still have some continuing updating to do, in the kitchens and baths. We always look forward to seeing our return guests. Have a safe summer and hope to see you in 2015, Regards, Sharon McLaughlin, Owner

Great place to stay! We try to come to Panama Beach at least once a year in May. Beach Tower Resort is where we stay. Great bunch of people, very friendly, even the guys that do the rentals on the beach are great and very friendly. Just an all around great place to stay. Great rates, why pay a bunch of money to stay at a place when your not going to be in the room much. This place is very clean and all rooms are facing the water. Love it. We will see ya'l next May and cant wait. Hope that ya'l have a great and safe year. From Franklin North Carolina

Our second time at Beach Tower. Right on the beach and easy access. Craig, the GM as always was very courteous and nice. Room with good kitchenette for cooking. The water was pristine during Memorial Day weekend. Even filmed a school of rays at swam right by us. Check out Mehdi's across the street. Quaint bar to relax and shoot pool.

Dear "Great Location" return guest,

Thank you for taking time for a nice review regarding your most recent stay at The Beach Tower Resort Motel We do appreciate our repeat guest. Our rooms all face the water with a private balcony where one can enjoy our beautiful sunsets. Not everyone gets to experience what you did when they visit the emerald coast, i.e. experiencing a school of sting rays. That is pretty awesome. Medhi's is a locals favorite and seems to be pretty laid back. Hopefully we will get to accommodate you once again whenever you plan another awesome trip to PCB, Respectully yours, Sharon McLaughlin

We try to get to the beach at least once a month, even in the cooler months. Beach Tower Resort Motel is small, rate is consistent, fairly clean and the staff is for the most part friendly and helpful. We will go back as often as we can.

What a surprise! Wonderful stay. Clean, smelled good, great view, friendly staff, nice room, fast elevator, great parking..all rolled into one place. Budget friendly compared to the other places and way nicer than most "motels". It was a perfect beach motel.
