Leslie B. May 2022
We loved the location of the room! It was a little hard to find since all of the buildings weren’t labeled we took a little bit of time to find where we were going to be. Room was clean and nicely set up. However for it to be a non smoking room it smelled like cigarettes and other substances. We weren’t there much except to sleep and shower so it wasn’t too bad. I would stay again for price and location but would prefer not to have a room that is no smoking smell like someone smoked.
Manager response:
We apologize for the odor and will ask housekeeping to look into this. Thank you, Leslie!

Nice place close to the beach, just across the street. Very clean and comfortable.
Abdul-Rahim L. Apr 2022
How close it was to the beach. Pretty clean. Tub/shower to small. Little fridge didn’t work great. Bed was comfortable. Elevator was broke. Cute decorations .
Tomacia J. Apr 2022
We loved this property. Clean and cozy. Good area close to many things to do and only 5 miles from the beach. I would have given 5 stars, but because everytime the air conditioner kicked on, you can hear the water running in it. The air unit is right beside the bed so it woke me a few times. Also the elevator was broken which was an inconvenience when you first arrive with all your bags. Even with those minor things we would definitely book again.

This was an excellent place stay.

This room was ok for the quality/price of the room. Compared to other rooms at this hotel, the price should be slightly less. The room was clean and it is located in a good spot. You can tell the unit is older and could use some updates. The closet door didn't shut fully and there were only two hangers in the closet. Also, no blow dryer in the bathroom. A blow dryer is a basic amenity at a condo or hotel room. The room size is good for 1-2 people. In a good location. Can walk to bars and restaurants. I also emailed vacasa on my day of arrival asking for a late check out since the forecast was rain; no response from vacasa.
Manager response:
Hi Kevin. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We apologize for any issues you experienced in communicating with a member of our team.

Unfortunately, during this time, we are unable to offer early check-in or late check-out. In order to promote the health and safety of our communities, we’re expanding our cleaning measures overall and increasing the time our housekeepers spend caring for each Vacasa home. We hope for another opportunity to host you in the future.

It was great absolutely awesome I would stay in it again
Donna V. Oct 2021
After reading some reviews, I was nervous about our reservation. However, our room was clean, close to a beach access, large bathroom. It was perfect for a weekend trip and the price was great.
Holly K. Jul 2021
Sorry but not a thing.
You should consider renovation or something.
I left a few hours later because I couldn't sleep.
Manager response:
Holly, we are sorry the home did not meet your expectations. While no issues were reported during your stay, we sincerely apologize for any missteps as it is never our intention to disappoint. We are glad to inform the owner is doing a full renovation of the home at the end of September. We hope we can have another chance to host you for a much more enjoyable experience.

Great location. Good privacy.
Pamela V. Jun 2021
Nice but floors were sandy and sticky. And there was a mouse glue strip in the bottom drawer of oven. Dishes were very unorganized. No room to really move around and set stuff down. Needed some instructions for tv remotes. Would have been better if tv was hung on wall and tv stand gone. Refrigerator needed defrosting. Advertised a coffeemaker and there wasn’t one. Had to go buy one for the trip. Other than that it was priced right
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Pamela. We sincerely apologize for the disappointment. We would have been happy to supply you with a coffee pot and assist with any questions or concerns if we had been notified during your time with us. Our local team strives to provide every one of our guests with the best vacation possible. We are so sorry if our standards were not met during your time with us! We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

Confesor R. Sep 2020
Loved nothing about this place, pictures were deceiving. Rust all over appliances, tub water would not drain because of all the hair stuck in it. Dirty floors...
No parking pass was given
Disgusting place
Manager response:
Hi, Confesor. We are sorry to hear about your disappointing stay with us and we apologize for the cleanliness and maintenance details that were missed. We confirm that the appliances have been updated, tubs have been cleaned and parking passes are in the home. We hope we can host you again!
Todd c. Jul 2020
The room was very unimpressive. It was not clean and I wish we had made other arrangements instead of having a bad experience and week in Florida
Manager response:

Each listing comes with up-to-date pictures, amenities listings, and a virtual tour so guests can choose the home that is right for them.

We hope to have the chance to impress you in the future!
Katrina S. Jun 2020
It’s as advertised: a small, decent, place very close and convenient to the beach. The bed could definitely be more comfortable and the shower drain better, but it had a fridge, microwave, etc. You can’t beat the price though for convenience to the beach. 4.5/5, I would stay there again.
William T. Jun 2020
Stay at a mission or in your car before you pay to stay at this dump. The building, grounds, amenities, and other rooms are great. 1203A is a total dump. Do NOT stay there. It's disgusting. Seriously. We barely slept.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, William. We apologize that the condition of this room didn't meet your expectations or needs. We hope we get the chance to impress you in the future!
stephen m. Mar 2020
Not the most pleasant stay. Stove is broke. Only one oversized pot and oversized skillet that doesn't fit end of the stove with the two small burns. Floor needs some TLC. There is a sign saying remove shoes but the floor looks nasty with the concrete finish that looks stained.poor see dirt under the beds and hard to reach surfaces. Really needs some improvement in my opinion.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Stephen. We apologize for the issues that occurred during your stay. We will work with our maintenance team to make repairs and improvements, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We enjoyed the simplicity of the reservation process, accessing the property and departure. For those not wanting to cross the street to the beach access there is public parking just across from the walkway. The unit itself is very small as described and could use some updating but definitely fit the need of our weekend getaway.
Evelyn M Cruz B. Sep 2019
This experience was amazing, everything what you will need is in this little apartment.. we really enjoy the areas, the restaurants, the beach well everything really.. thanks Vacasa!!
Kareem W. Mar 2019
I will be back
Vickie M. Jun 2018
The room was very clean. The area was quiet and convenient to lots of activities. The pool was very nice. The room needs some updating.
Teri J. Apr 2018
For last minute booking it wasn’t bad. I’d prefer to have a balcony and a bigger space.
Angel N. Nov 2017
Alojamiento recomendable, muy buena ubicación, buena seguridad, excelentes opciones de alimentación cerca.
Daniel G. Nov 2017
The Inn at St Thomas Square is a great place to stay. Very convenient to anywhere in Panama City Beach.
Dalton B. Jul 2017

Daniell P. Jun 2017

Thank you

This is the first time we stayed at a condo versus a hotel. It was much more affordable and the public beach was directly across the street! There are several restaurants and shops in walking distance as well and the condo has a great coffee shop and Mexican restaurant in one of it's buildings! It was just a short walk through the property to get to. There were several other shops too like a nail salon, small convenient store, and a wine shop! I enjoyed this location very much! The pool area looked nice, but we did not swim there and parking/check in was as easy as can be! The condo itself is a little outdated but the bathroom is HUGE! The bed wasn't the most comfortable but not too terrible. Cute place especially for how little time you should spend in there!
Kendall C. Jul 2016
If you are like us and only are in room to sleep and eat small meals, this is the place. Close to beach, restaurants, Walmart bed comfortable and all utensils and appliances there.. Refridgerator is small but we only did small items for breakfast and lunches ate out for dinner.
Mason C. Jul 2016
The property was much smaller than I originally expected, but it was still quite nice. The location was good for a variety of activities in Panama City Beach. The room is definitely not big enough to hold more than two people. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for a nice quiet room for a couple's get away! :)
Lance R. Jul 2016
We planned a last minute deep sea fishing trip and did not want anything fancy room wise, we knew we would not be spending a lot of time at/in the room. For the purpose of our trip the room was fine and as expected. This is in a great location for the cost.
Shelly B. Jul 2016
Great place, felt safe, and clsoe to everything
Holly H. Jul 2016
We enjoyed our stay here at The Inn at St. Thomas. This unit had everything we needed for our stay. Very reasonably priced. Centrally located. Nice Pool. Charcoal grilling areas were provided and overlooked the beautiful inlet. Walking distance to HammerHead Freds, Mellow Mushroom, and Mr. Newbys. We will definitely be returning customers.
Heather M. Jun 2016
The property was located in an ideal spot. Both the property and room were very clean. The bed squeaked a little bit was never uncomfortable. The pool was nice and clean and enjoyed having the other amenities. I would definitely stay there again. Actually looking to plan my next vacation now!
ILEANA C. Jun 2016
it was a nice and cozy studio, that had everything we need.
Nicole G. Jun 2016
8730 Thomas Dr #1203A was a great option for our stay. It was close to everything we wanted to do, and most importantly, a very easy walk to the beach. The room is quite small, but has everything you could need. The grounds were nice and felt safe. I would most certainly stay here again.
Deborah W. Nov 2015
The room was exceptionally clean and the a.c. was great. There was no freezer and no ice maker on premises. The bathroom was large and the shower had plenty of pressure and hot water. Bed was only a double and the room is on the small side would not have had room for our gear if we were both racing. But we slept well every night.
Larry S. Jun 2015
cleaniness and plenty of towels but the bed not feel good to my back and they have what you need in the room to enjoy your vacation.
