My family and I have stayed at Top of the Gulf for many years. We always stay in units that are rented by owners rather than use an agency. It is an older complex but over the past 3 years or so, they have done some major improvements. The building has been repainted, addition of new common area balcony furnishings...

I would like to start my review advising that I booked my room #116 through Vacasa, which manages that condo, which I would like to give kudos for because the condo was exactly as advertised by them. Before booking I was skeptical due to a mix of reviews I had read in through several websites. One of the reasons that...

On our second night in our condo, we noticed a bad bed bug infestation. Left immediately and had to book a hotel room for one night. Owner was very workable with a fair refund. Moved to Days Inn beachside the next day. It was a shame because we were enjoying to complex otherwise. Bed bugs are one of those thing...

After viewing their page of photos we decided to go with this place and when we walked in our Condo it was horrible. The beds were like sleeping on old box springs along with the noise, windows leaked so much water in from the rain we had to put down towels. The refrigerator freezer looked as if it had not...

I'm not a very critical person so I'll just lay out the pros and cons. Pros: on the beach, excellent location to city center, walking distance to night life (club la vela), security at the gate, pool, studio space is spacious. Cons: broken floor tile, outdated (most older condo buildings are here), no balcony, took toilet very long time to...

We stayed in room 516 and it was very plain. No decorations bed was very uncomfortable and small but room was well stocked and clean. Shower pressure was amazing. Right on the beach!! No hot tub tho. :( Liked that there was a parking lot and not a garage.

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
