We spent much time researching hotels in Panama City because no one would take a 51 pound dog and we were in the middle of moving from Costa Rica to Panama. We enlisted the help of Fido.com. Costa Inn said they would take a dog of any size. By the time we arrived to the hotel my poor dog had... More

We booked this for our last night of our trip, where we had a 19 hour layover in Panama City (from Costa Rica). This is one of the few hotels that has a (semi) free shuttle, so I wanted to save the $30 each way taxi price. I had emailed ahead of time to try to figure out the shuttle... More

This place is the best deal I had in Panama City! The airport shuttle was very convenient - I only had to wait about 12 minutes before it departed. The 24-hour restaurant was a God-send as I hadn't eaten all day, and enjoyed having a delicious bowl of soup and a glass of wine after a day of travelling, while... More

The pictures are false advertising- they are way old and the hotel looks nothing like that. And do not count on the airport shuttle!! It's a van that works with like 2 other hotels I waited almost 2hrs for it to leave the airport while they were waiting for other going to different hotels.

Well, my flight was late, so had to pay $40. for taxi. I had a room on the 6th floor, next to the pool. The view was really nice. My AC unit had no knobs, so no AC. I left the window open to cool off a little at night. The bed was awful! Hard, uncomfortable, double size with the... More

This hotel advertised free shuttle to the airport. The evening clerk said it leaves at 5am 8 am and 11 am and said it was $2 per person and neglected to state that we needed a ticket the evening before. We were downstairs by 450 am and the morning clerk said the bus left at 430 so we ended up... More

The pictures you see on their site are at least 30 years old and the hotel has not been upgraded since. The light fixture in my room had places for 3 bulbs: one was burned out, one empty and the other one had about a 15-watt bulb. There was a lamp on each side of the bed. On one side... More

we stayed on night here and selected it in part because of its free shuttle from the airport. We had no trouble with the shuttle (we asked for details and they sent a useful email back) but we did have to wait for a while. The room was adequate (although not as clean as I like) and the staff nice.

Bed sheets were stained, AC Unit broke, atmosphere of room was just gross. No hot water in shower! Found a bunch of white tiny bugs on wood dresser that... More
