I love mom and pop cheap motels. This one didn't meet either of those categories. It wasn't cheap at $90 a weekday night in May. It had the worst shower experience I have ever had (and that includes the time we stayed in a place that had the fixtures duct taped in place).

Thank 1dragnet
AquaViewMotel, General Manager at Aqua View Motel, responded to this review

Sorry you had a problem with the shower. Since you're hidden behind a screen name, I cannot even look to see what room you were in to look into the issue and have no idea what you mean as far as the worst shower ever. Was it a pressure issue, shower was too small compared to what you're used to,...

This tiny motel is located directly at the gulf of Mexiko - 1 Minute from the beach you get some small pool and satisfying rooms with even smaller bathrooms. For a group of 6 persons on a road trip these rooms are OK in price-performance ratio.

I enjoyed my stay at I aqua view so much! The staff is wonderful, and the location to the beach is perfect. The walk to the beach is about two minutes. The room was clean, beds comfortable. I can't wait to go back and stay again!! The location is great too, close to everything but far enough away to enough...

Went to PCB with a friend last year. We wanted to stay on the beach but had a tight budget. We came across this hidden little gem that afforded us both. We were able to walk to the beach in a minute. The property was kept clean and so was the pool. The rooms were spacious. There was a little...

We stayed here for one night and after a few hours driving we arrived at the teeny tiny reception. Upon arrival our booking couldn't be found however the staff member was very helpful and sorted it for us and then gave us an upgrade. The upgraded room was massive, big living space, kitchen, bathroom and big bedroom. It wasn't dirty...

Sorry you didn't feel as safe as you should. Your title is misleading in that it might make people think you're referring to the management of the motel. We care deeply for the safety of our guests. We have over 20 cameras set up throughout the exterior of the motel to keep watch on what's going on, who's coming and...

I hate to comment so negatively but our experience WAS awful. We love Panama city and beaches so when we saw this motel was very near to the sea we had no hesitation in booking. We arrived after a very long 5hr drive, around 6pm. The tiny reception office was scruffy and the young woman at the counter not very...

I checked in the aqua view hotel last week. I paid for a week in cash what a mistake. After entering my room I noticed that I could see thru the window blinds. I took a shower and when I walked from the bathroom I could see a man clear as day in my window. I put on some clothes...

It seems you are a bit confused with the truth so here are the Facts: 1)There are NOT tables and chairs outside of each room. 2) You THREATENED to call the police but did not as you were well aware there was no reason to. 3) You were only charged for ONE night and refunded the rest of your money,...

It was cheap so used for a dive trip. Never again. Bed was old and hard as a rock. Roaches in bathroom. No maid service. It was a nice place once but owner has gotten lax on care and services. The location is good but just a touch too low for me.

AquaViewMotel, General Manager at Aqua View Motel, responded to this review

Thanks for leaving a review. First of all, however, I cannot find your name in our reservation log so can't be sure if you stayed with us or what room you may have been in. That information would help in looking into the issues you mention. Beds are a matter of opinion whether they're too hard, too soft or just...
