Is second Google+ Account at same physical address affecting Maps rank

We have a main brick and mortar business, that is a hotel. 

 

The verified listing for that business is here: https://plus.google.com/b/113696908221929487798/+sandpiperbeacon

 

We also have a Spring Break season that we wanted to market separately, and so we also have a different listing for just Spring Break here: https://plus.google.com/b/106508908370349927193/+Springbreakfunplace

 

These two listings both have the same physical street address. 

 

When a search is performed for "Panama City Beach Hotels" our business, despite being verified) is not showing up as a marker on the maps (it is buried very deep on "Next Page 4"). 

 

 

Is the Spring Break listing affecting how prominently the main listing shows up?Is the Spring Break listing affecting how prominently the main listing shows up?Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 1.51.15 PM.pngScreen Shot 2016-02-11 at 1.51.23 PM.png

 

So the business IS certainly displayed on maps, as the screenshots above show, but since both the Google+ accounts are displaying the same physical street address, is that the reason the Main Business Listing is being held back, and not shown higher up in the maps listings? 

 

Would deleting the "Spring Break" listing entirely from the maps / google+ resolve this issue? If so, how do I purge it completely? Because I do not wish to un-manage it, and then have a competitor claim the listing. 

 

Thank you in advance for any help and advice you can give!

@Sandy P

 

from a technical point of view and according their guidelines it is possibel and allowed to have for different buinsesses at the same address two different business pages.

 

But what I should tell you ist the violation of their naming rules for your second page 

https://plus.google.com/+Springbreakfunplace

 

Note:

Names of cities like in your case  "Panama City Beach Fl" you should delete asap from the page via your dahsboard

Thanks Helmut, I have just now removed the "Panama City Beach FL" from the name of the business per your advice.

Thank you
