Casa loma

The stay was well worth the price. It not a 5 star hotel but for the location it’s well worth it. Hotel on the beach with a great view is hard to find. The rooms are not up to date but are clean. I will be back soon. If you do visit all I can say is bring your own towels and hygiene products. Great experience

Nice Hotel, Close to the beach

Pros: Right on the beach with a very good view of ocean. Big size room
Cons: Provide complementary breakfast.
Location: Beach in front of the hotel (with a private entrance) is clean and quite. Not many restaurants and things to do within 1 mile
The hotel is right on the beach. All the rooms have a great ocean view. The beach in front of the hotel is quite and private. The heated swimming pool is also good. It's 8 feet deep on one side. Hotel is kept clean. Room size is very descent. Bathroom is very very small though. Note that it is not a very luxury/modern hotel. There is no complementary breakfast. Not many restaurants right next to the hotel.

Nice older motel on beach

Motel has palm trees and tropical plants around pool and beach access that is also viewable from your room nice touch. Very clean around outside. All around great beach experience. It was quite family style atmosphere. Would stay again.

Steps to the beach from the pool.

Balcony overlooking the Gulf. Can't beat the view. This hotel is older and a little worn, but the staff was very friendly.

Bad Maintenance of this room

The room was damp to the point the bed was damp and so were your clothes. Roaches in room. The tub was dirty and greasy. I cleaned it before using it. The stove was nasty. Thanks humidifier they had in room broken. The eating table you could not use it was not stable.

Wish I Could Get a Refund!!!

Pros: The view and the private beach.
Cons: The cleanliness. While the hotel and it's decor are dated, it's no excuse for the filth.
Location: Great location---close to Pier Park and other shopping/restaurants.
I booked this trip very last minute and the hotel seemed decent. It wasn't on par with Hilton or Marriott properties, obviously, but looked like it would serve the purpose of staying somewhere with a beach front, chairs, and proximiy to shopping, restaurants, etc. Let me start off by saying the views from the private balconies is magnificent! . The staff was friendly and professional. Things go wrong from this point. The room wasn't entirely clean when we checked in. I now regret not going back to the front desk and demanding a different room (while I supervise the cleaning staff) or demanding that they issue me a full refund and going elsewhere. The shower is filthy. We showered with flip flops on. There was sand on the floors already despite us not having stepped foot on the beach. The hair dryer holder was dirty, there was standing water in the ice bucket, and some sort of dirt on the little tray holding the ice bucket and cello rapped cups. The beach chair service wasn't offered as it wasn't "in season" and due to it being Spring Break, the hotel was filled with loud, partying students. Needless to say, we didn't sleep well while we were there. Security never did anything to stop the noise after midnight. I will NEVER stay here again and really regret my choice of staying here.

Old Florida Vibe

Pros: Views, proximity to the beach, cost, relaxed vibe
Cons: Lighting
Location: Excellent location in the heart of PCB area
This was my second stay at this cool, well-maintained classic. Basic, clean accommodations at a great rate. A couple of minor issues with fluctuating water temps and insufficient lighting at the desk area that did not affect the overall experience much. Will be back soon!

Location, location, location!

Pros: Location.
We love the Casa Loma because it is right on the beach. The view is beautiful. It has an island feel with the tile floors and balconies. Prettiest beach anywhere!
