The complex is an older complex and therefore it does not boast some of the frilly amenities. There is no hot tub, or designer pool area. However there is a pool area and kiddie pool and both are adequate for the most part.I'm not sure they would be during peak times. I was not impressed with the complex as a... More

Good price but outdated. Nice being on the beach though. Has pool on site with a food and beverage stand on site as well. A bit ugly and could use paint. Not a lot of space either inside room. Kind of small but convenient for a couple or very small family

We booked this efficiency condo through vrbo. Wonderful location, decent price, but won't be back. Pros: Location was right on the beach, and close to restaurants. Pool and beach area were extremely well maintained, with ample seating. Room plenty big enough for 2-3 people. Laundry room on every other floor. Staff was friendly. Room was fairly clean. Cons: No patios.... More

We found this on bookings.com. We were a company of 4. The room was ok..nothing special. Very close access to the beach and a good location overall. Close to restaurants, shops and entertainment.. The pool was pretty small for such a big building.

For complete transparency, we stayed in a friend's condo they allowed us to use for free. Our particular unit, an efficiency condo was clean & nicely appointed. Negative review is for the complex as a whole. Property is one of the older complexes in PCB. Only one elevator worked during our stay. It's a "pet friendly" property but had a... More

Rented here through vacasa. The room was old but well maintained. It could have been cleaner. The master bed had dirty sheets on it, we could tell they weren't changed from the previous guest. We found two toe nail clippings on the rug (nasty!!!!). There was hair on the extra blankets and dish towels, mold on the shower curtain and... More

The room was ok but the floor was dirty and we had to keep our socks on. Only one burner worked on the stove and the knobs kept popping off. The lamp shades were cracked and the curtains had red juice stains on them. We only had five towels and had to wash them several times in the laundry room... More

Great condo's on the beach with nice deep pool for kids young and old. Great location, not too crowded. Rented via VRBO website and had great experience with owner and room was not too expensive compared to "EVERYTHING" else in PCB. Loved our week here with my 10 and 12 year olds.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Inn at St Thomas Square on Panama City Beach is a truly unique vacation destination. The Inn is located just across the street and sits along the magnificent Grand Lagoon. The Villas and Plaza are not a busy, crowded high-rise condominium. It is actually a European Villas and Plaza with all the comforts of home set in a quaint, relaxing atmosphere. The Inn is one of only a few locations with a boat dock along Grand Lagoon. Grand Lagoon will give you easy access to St. Andrews Bay, The Gulf of Mexico, and Shell Island.There are several floor plans to choose from that accommodates 2 to 8 people. If you are traveling as a couple, family or group, rowers, triathletes, baseball, softball, cheerleaders, divers or bikers, we have rentals to fit every budget. All Villa’s and Plaza units have fully equipped kitchens and all but the studios have a washer/dryer. Though The Inn is across the street from the beach, it only takes a minute to walk across the street to the open sugar white sands and pitch your gear for a fun filled day of sun. We are within walking distance to Club LaVela, Spinnaker, Emerald Falls Family Entertainment, and Hammer Head Fred’s. There is a Mexican bar and grill on the property, a hair and nail salon and Panama City Beach Winery, Gift shop that has a large selection of the best Florida Citrus wines available. They have wine tasting daily – our top pick is the Mango. ... more   less
