Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great location and staff was amazing. If we had an issue with the room, it was promptly taken care of. Close to attractions and restaurants. Exterior and common areas on ground floor were very nice and updated. I would recommend updating the rooms especially bathrooms and also replacing and/or removing carpet altogether.

Took a quick Anniversary trip and the room was very clean, staff was extremely friendly! Heated pool in the winter and on the beach! It is very close to the small pier, so if you like to fish that is very convenient. Breakfast was included, nothing fancy, but it's good.

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor for our 28th anniversary getaway. It is an older hotel that is very convenient to the beach. The pool is heated in the winter months. They play music out by the pool starting at 7am. Did not like that. We were on the second floor directly above the music. The kitchenette is very...

My wife and I stayed 3 days at the end of October. Upon arriving the parking lot, we noticed the hotel was clean and well kept, parking was easy and convenient to the lobby.

Only issue we had was not hotel related. We came down for a birthday present for my daughter and it fell the same time as "thunder beach", several thousand Harley's in PCB. other than that it was great.

We stayed at Beach Tower by the Sea over Columbus Day weekend. Each room looks out onto the beach and offers spectacular views, has a kitchenette with basic cookware and has two queen beds. The staff was friendly and offered recommendations about the area. The drawbacks included hard to open exterior doors, a slow elevator, poor wifi and sad continental...

I will say I was very impressed when we arrived because I wasn't expecting a lot. The lobby was nicely decorated, they had ample amount of parking and they even let us check in at lunchtime. The location was great and they had a nice pool and our stay included a simple breakfast (cereal, muffins & yogurt). As for the...

This was my first time staying at Beach Tower or a By The Sea property. First of all from the call to make reservations to the time we checked out every employee was kind and had a smile on their face. Now the first thing I look at is the shower. I am 6ft and most showers are short but...

The hotel was super nice and the staff could not have been friendlier. Rooms were in great condition..the only issue is the mattresses are extremely firm; that may be the only thing to prevent us from staying here again.

I give this two stars, one for each of my dirty feet from barely setting foot in the room and walking on the carpet. It's a wonder that our bath towels didn't fall into the toilet since there was no lid. But on a positive note, the shower water pressure will take your skin off if you stood there long...
