Pros: The location to the beach for the price.
Cons: Most of the rooms need a lot of updating like flooring, furniture, OMG they do need blackout curtins we hung our own blankets on the windows.
Location: Great location away from heavy tourism but in walking distance to the beach, several souvenir shops, convenience stores, eateries and music clubs.
The location was awesome, one block from beach, great shopping, music, eateries. The hotel was clean, NO amenaties other than washer and dryer and pool. This is a hotel that would good for someone that is on an extreme budget. If you book here call the hotel and reserve room #101. It has 2 full size beds, frig and microwave. It is the best of all of their rooms. Next in line would be room #201, it has 2 full size beds, table with 2 chairs and a full kitchen. You have to keep in mind that this hotel is old and needs much updating. One of the things I loved about this hotel is that all rooms have both front and back doors. I would stay here again.

Pros: I liked the Location and the price
Cons: Needs some work
Location: Located at the end of Thomas Drive / Front beach Road everything is pretty easy to get to .
Hotel Staff was pleasant and eager to please. The Room was about what I expected for the price. Yes, It needed some TLC but for me and for bike week is was great. I was Surprised that it did have a Small Fridge and a microwave that both came in handy.

Pros: Very very close to the beach. Decently priced.
Cons: Slightly more well maintained. Rooms need darker and/or thicker curtains. Also the have irons in every room and no board to go with it.
The overall feel of this hotel was just ok. I would fully recommend this hotel to anyone who is on a tight budget. The "family room" is probably the biggest one they have. It consists of a queen bed, 2 twin size bunk beds, and a full size pull-out couch. The bathroom is acceptable in this room. Also there is a "full" kitchen. Renting any other room in this hotel will lead to slight disappointment ONLY because of how small they are. The thing that truly saved this hotel for me is that it is a very very short walk to a nice part of the beach. And when you come back all covered in sand there is an outdoor shower (not fancy) waiting for you.

Aqua View Motel is a great little motel within seconds of the beautiful emerald waters of Panama City Beach. The motel is older but is still in great condition. The room was clean and was just like the ones pictured. Very family friendly! The staff was great!

Beach 20 steps away!!

This hotel is definitely an "older" motel. Room was clean. Has a small fridge and microwave. We planned a lot of activities for our trip, so we were only in our room to go to sleep. The biggest perk is the location. You literally step out of your door and 20 steps you're at the beach!!

I would have rated it even more comfortable if the bed was more comfortable. I'm spoiled to memory foam. But especially for the price, it was GREAT! We stayed in a family room.

It is close to beach and a convenience store which is the plus. The negative. .. no daily housekeeping. You have to take your towels and exchange them. The shower handles were stripped and barely any water came on. No 24 hour front desk. Very basic motel. I seen two roaches while there.
