“Nice Getaway!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

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.

Had a great stay over the weekend. The room was super clean the day we check in and was for ever day of our stay and the staff was nice and polite. They are in a good walking distance for fun and food. We will stay there again.

pretty nice place especially for the price great location great rooms. And its a smaller complex so you don't have to deal with all the loud big groups of people staying there as well. Staff was very pleasent.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for such a speedy review upon your most recent stay with us at The Beach Tower Resort Motel. We do try to offer each and every guest a clean, comfortable room to stay in during their visit to the Emerald Coast. We are small, but we like it that way. We have been able to meet the majority of our guest personally because of our size. We don't claim to be a "mega property", but just a simple "mom & pop", which have practically become obsolete her on PCB. Thank you again for staying with us this past weekend. We always look forward to our returning guests,
Sharon McLaughlin, Owner
Craig Buhler, GM
& All our Staff :)

Checked in on Thu with normal check in time. It was nostalgic being given actual door keys for a room. Room was clean, plenty of towels in bathroom and loved the view from the balcony. Staff was very friendly, courteous and lots of coupons in the lobby for locations throughout PCB. 1 issued was taken care of immediately - TV remote did not work. Extended our stay by two days with a nice discount on our final night and to our surprise motel offered free lunch on Sunday before memorial day (burgers, dogs, chips, drinks). Rental companies for chairs and jet skis are located directly in front of hotel on beach, so you have to walk down a little ways to avoid the jet ski buoys but Beachtower has no control over this. Would gladly stay again!

Dear Memorial Weekend Guest,

Yes, we still have actual keys to our rooms .LOL:) You are not the first to comment about that! Whenever people have made that comment at check-in, I've had to laugh along with them, because it is the truth. Being here on the beach, the card readers do not work well with the salt air and humidity. It's a big problem, so we opt to avoid problems if it is within our power of doing so. Thank you for the compliments regarding the clean room, extra towels. The general manager has always tried to do a complimentary cookout for our guests over the holidays. Everyone seems to enjoy it. We certainly hope that you make plans to come back for a visit with us before the end of the summer. We always enjoy accommodating our repeat guest. Have a safe summer, Sharon McLaughlin

Beach Tower is a great motel! It is clean and the views are amazing. You get all the amenities needed to make your stay comfortable. Most important to my family is cleanliness and affordability....this motel is that and more. Try this place out!!

Room Tip: Get the family suite for more room and not much more expensive

Dear Guest,

Thank you for posting a review from your most recent stay at The Beach Tower. The staff at The Beach Tower do go out of their way to try to offer our guest a nice enjoyable stay. I believe the young man(Rich Buhler) who offered you the advice about the seafood was actually the General Managers son. Please consider The Beach Tower the next time you plan a trip to PCB, we would like the opportunity to accommodate you again, Sharon McLaughlin

I must say, this was an excellent mini vacay for my husband and I.
We arrived on a Thursday afternoon and checked in with ease. The staff was polite and the building was well maintained. Upon entering our room we were extremely excited to see the kitchenette. As we really wanted to prepare our own food.
(We had been eating out for 3 weeks due to business travel)
The bathroom was cozy,clean and equipped with plenty of towels & washcloths as well as soap and shampoo.
The beds were made up with beautiful comforters and throw pillows which did not resemble the norm for motels/hotels. The beds were comfortable! We rested quite well. The t.v was an older model and the remote batteries were dead.... But who cares? We didn't goto the beach to channel surf on a flat screen. Lol
The view from the private balcony was amazing! The staff will go out of their way to help you! My husband wanted to grill some seafood but didn't know where to buy it. A friendly young man went on an all out hunt to get the info for him! We enjoyed the grilling area and the worlds smallest bar that is located adjacent to the hotel.
Overall experience was so awesome and pleasurable that my husband surprised me ......As I was packing our things... He said... Let's stay one more day! I was elated!
Such a great place! We will never goto another!

Thanks for a well needed vacay!
