Casa Loma Inn
Ranked #30 of 49 Hotels in Panama City Beach
Reviewed 8 November 2013

We came for a quick weekend and wanted something on the beach but not a condo. I will say that for $59.00 per night it was a good value however there are some things to consider. It is a old hotel so it has a somewhat musty smell. It has coffee maker, hair dryer, iron, small fridge, safe and plenty of tables and chairs. It is a tile floor which is good but you will get sand in the bed. We slept pretty good in the bed but the mattresses were like sofa mattress and the springs would squeak anytime you moved. The shower would swing between cold and scolding hot water so if you have small kids beware. It was windy that weekend so we could always hear a whistling noise either at the front door or balcony. You are in the center of town but there is nothing nearby to walk to so you will have to drive to restaurants or shopping. if you want a cheap, clean, no frills motel on the beach this is your spot.

Thank you for your visit and sorry your stay was not as pleasant as you or I would have expected. We will check out the shower problem from hot to cold to see is scald guard's need replacing. There is convenient store and 2 restaurants right out side the door and within 3 miles most any shopping or eatery's needed are available. The Pier Park Shopping Plaza is 2 miles west of us. Please ask our front desk for any assistance needed. We pride ourselves on cleanliness and being the old Florida type of lodging we work harder at it than most. Again thank
you for the visit and hope you will try us again!

This is an older hotel but was very clean. No frills, but great value. Everyone was very nice. Right on the beach and in quiet area. Only complaint I have was low water pressure in shower. Great weekend trip. I will stay there again.

Thank you very much for your visit to the Casa Loma. We appreciate the opportunity to have you stay here with us. I have gone through guest history to find which room you were in so
as to double check the shower problem, hopefully was just a valve stem or shower head, but
thanks you for giving us the opportunity to correct the item and we appreciate the generosity of your review.

Thank you for your visit and taking the time to review the Casa Loma. We appreciate all our guest and hopefully you noticed we were in the middle of repairing our balconies and as each one is completed they will all top off with new paint on each railing. Again thank you for your continued support of us here at the Casa Loma. If I can be of future help in assisting your
with reservations please let me know.

this hotel is perfect for the person who wants a spotlessroom with a great beach view at a value price.It is an older hotel that could use some paint on the outside but our room was newly painted and I loved the decor.I liked the tile floors because they looked clean,but you may want slipper socks-I also liked the bricked balcony and pool deck.things to consider are that there is no elevato but the stairs are easy to manage-there is no private dressing area inside the room because the bathroom is so small-we also had trouble with sudden water temperature changes in the shower.The staff was wonderful and there is little road noise

Thank you for your recent visit to the Casa Loma and taking time to review the hotel. We strive to make our guest an affordable clean hotel and glad that is what you found. We did check out the water difference and replaced a scald guard in two rooms so hopefully fixed the problem. We have started repainting the balcony's as each one is renovated so feel sure you saw those
to know we are updating the hotel. Thank you again for the visit and the review.

I discovered the Casa Loma in early 2012. After at least 5 stays, (usually 2 nights each), it is still my first choice on PC Bch. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have a beachview private balcony. What few minor concerns I have had while a guest were addressed quickly and courteously by the management. I have been visiting PCB for over 50 years and well remember a place with long stretches of pristine beach without side-by-side motels, condos and "attractions". The Casa Loma sits on a rare strip of beach for the area. It is adjacent on both sides to private homes or undeveloped beachfront.. It is,especially in the off-season, as close to a quiet retreat as you will find in a motel setting on PCB. So, if you're looking for fast-food joints, bungee jumping or goofy-golf outside you room door, head on down the road a piece. I'll be having a cocktail and watching the sunset from my balcony at the Casa Loma.

Room Tip: No elevators, but management will always make an effort to accommodate

Thank you for your five stays with us here at the Casa Loma and returning again. We value each of our guest reviews as it helps us in keeping in touch with our guests. Our favorite saying for the Casa Loma is come as a guest and leave as family. Hopefully we made you feel as family after 5 years of creating memories with us. Also we appreciate your description of us and our location as we could not have paid some one to describe the Casa Loma as you have.

We only stayed here for one night as we had roaches crawling all over the place. Had to get the refrigerator replace as the one in the room did not cool. The staff were very helpful. Place needs a facelift and replacement of some of the old furniture. We checked out after being up all night fighting with the Roaches! However it does have a very nice view of the beach and great landscaping around the pool area.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else

Thank you for your visit and your review. Here at the Casa Loma we welcome each and every comment as this allows us to improve our hotel. Hopefully you noticed the balconies and rails
were all being updated as allowed by occupancy therefore when you return it will be awesome with all the good comments you had we would hope you will be awesomely happy and return again and again. If I can be of personal assistance in the future do not hesitate to call me. We are not aware of Roaches in any of our rooms but will be checking each one individually, hopefully what you say was in fact not a Roach but a Florida but called a Palmetto, which also
is very dark, big and fly's.

This hotel is similar to many in PCB, it is old and in need of an upgrade, but quite reasonable if your expectations are not too high. The room itself was reasonably clean, the air conditioning worked great, the TV was old but worked fine and the cable worked fine. The bathroom was small, but also did what it needed to do. The balcony was nice, with a beautiful view of the Gulf. There were things that could be improved upon. The outside railing of the hotel is rusting away and makes to whole outside of the place look pretty bad. Also, the outside floor of the balcony was a little on the dirty side, but I guess there is no easy way to clean those without the guest underneath getting wet. We were traveling with our toddler, and it was nice that the bed moves, so we could push it against the wall and let him sleep in his own bed. One other note, the space between the rails on the balcony is a little wide to have a baby out there. If we stay here again I''d probably bring some bungee cords along to provide some horizontal restraints for piece of mind with my child on the balcony.

Room Tip: No elevator. We had a third floor room and that was perfect.
