It's really hard to beat this place for the price. The location is good, the staff is friendly, the rooms are just fine, slightly dated... and it's not expensive. The beds are quite comfortable, the wifi is great and a/c works well. I find myself returning to this hotel just about every time that I'm in Panama City because it's... More
