We probably got this room for half price because of the spring breakers presence, but still had a great 3 night stay. A popular Spring Break bar is across the street, but did not dilute our sleep at all.

The Beach: Is across the street with pristine waters accompanied by white sand beach. We traveled to Destin one day and hit the beach there just to compare, and all three boys got stung by jelly fish! That kept two of the boys out of the water, but one of my sons could not resist the body boarding. Lots of kids emulating Spongebob by using small nets to catch jellyfish!

Restaurants: Well, two of us went deepsea fishing (with Jubilee) and caught ourselves a meal of vermillion snapper and trigger fish (Red snapper had to throw back ... out of season). Another night was order in Dominoes, and the other we had barbeque right in fromt of our hotel (great ribs).

Room: I was pleasantly surprised. Very clean, a few carpet stains. Master bedroom and living room both have sliding doors out onto the terrace: beautiful view up where we were on the 20th floor. Granite countertops, dishwasher, full refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker (bring your own coffee). Beds were very comfortable.

Staff: Only available until early pm: then your on your own. Courteous staff
while attended.

Cost: We got the room for $115 per night last minute deal. Parking was free, but they charge a $40 nonrefundable fee for room insurance. Still turned out to be a great deal for us.

I stayed at Lake Town Wharf for the winter, I was on an end unit and ended up finding mold in one of the bedrooms and 2 closets. Upon informing the front desk maintenance came up and said that it would take at least 7 days before they would do anything. 2 months later..still no answer. I took some pictures and cleaned up the mold myself. Two other units also have this problem and LTW denies that mold even exists! The view is great and the rooms are a good size, the price is right. Lots of potential, but they need to do something about the MOLD first.

My wife and 2 daughters stayed hear over MLK 3day weekend 2010. We got a 1 BR w/ bunks for a great rate thru Sterling Resorts and it was well worth the money. The only thing wrong with this condo is, it is across the street from the beach, not on the beach; however all of the rooms do still have a view of the beach. 5 pools, dancing water fountains.

Tip: If you don't have any issues with heights, ask for the highest floor possible. There are 2 buildings that will obstruct your view on the lower floors.

Also, during the winter months (off season) Sterling Resorts may be negotiable, "Priceline" style. Make them an offer!

We arrived 9;30 10-23-09 security was great they were expecting us gave us info to get in room. The room was much nicer than pictured it was beautiful, very comfortable . Location is great so close to everything. Walk to beach was no problem. Best thing about our room is the balcony with such a great view of the gulf. The hot tub was big and wonderful . they do have a heated pool though, my grandson was dissapointed with that. Hope to go back soon. We were treated very nice and workers at location were very helpful.

I had high expectations after reading the reviews....but it's not what we expected. If you want to be on the beach this is "not" the place. You have to cross a busy street and go thru the parking lot of Pineapple Willy's to get to the beach.

We traveled to Panama City Beach on August 26th for 4 days. Wow! is all I can say. This was our first time at the beach and even in Panama City Beach, Florida. We were directly across the street from Pineapple Willy's and enjoyed easy access to the beach. It was less than a minute's walk! We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo. We had 8 people and it was more than enough room for us and then some. We enjoyed the modern kitchen and breathtaking balcony in the living room area and the master bedroom. Each bedroom had a bathroom which was very convenient. No fighting over the bathroom! Yay!!! We were on the 10th floor which was not too high. There are 21 floors I believe. They have a gameroom also, but we were too busy in the pool to really check it out. I know I saw an air hockey table in there. We enjoyed the breathtaking scenery of the beach while hitting the waves and letting the waves toss us too and fro. We enjoyed the nightly watershow at Laketown Wharf with the different musical themes and the awesome colors displayed in the water. It was like being at a Las Vegas Bellagio show. Wal-Mart was conveniently located just a stone's throw away for those last minute forgotten items. We visited Pineapple Willy's for lunch. Very nice restauraunt. Also we brought back some T-shirts for souvenirs. We also went to SeaBreeze Winery and toured their facility. We taste-tested some Blueberry wine. Delicious! Next time we go, we plan to go to RockIt Lanes and do a little skating! Gulf World Marine Park is nice too. Very good value for the amount of shows they have. We especially loved the high diving act. Those divers are truly skilled. We especially loved Seth! He''s a hoot!!!!! We got a chance to go to Pier Park and eat at Five Guys hamburgers and fries. We were stuffed after we left. Their hamburgers are fantastic. We also visited the Beach congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. They have a lovely Kingdom Hall and we look forward to visiting with them again. The hotel constantly had hotel security driving around which was very reassuring. All of the personnel were very nice and made our hotel stay enjoyable and one we will remember forever. Also they have 5 pools and our kids loved the kiddie pool with the turtle and splash slide. They are adding more shops. They have a gym on the 4th floor. They are adding more businesses such as restaraunts. They have internet on the lobby floor and free wi-fi- in the rooms. All in all, we loved the beach, food, scenery and our hotel was exceptional.
