Nice hotel. Clean, comfortable beds and nice pool area. Nothing fancy but great for visiting the beach. Staff was friendly and they do offer wine in the afternoons by the pool. Easy access to the beach. Convenient parking for the hotel. Only 14 rooms so you get to know your neighbors quickly if you want.

If you are traveling without kids, do not miss this honey hole. There is no better hostess nor peaceful place in Panama City. I'm not saying I've been to them all, but I have visited a variety of hotels, motels & resorts. If you need space, book a larger room. Who hangs out in there room anyway?

My wife and I booked this hotel last minute. We stayed from Saturday-Monday in mid-June. The owner was gracious enough to allow us to check-in two hours early, which was really nice. We then checked out (for free) 2 beach chairs and an umbrella to use as long as we liked. If you aren't familiar with this area, beach chairs... More

Quite Disappointed, I booked our stay based on the reviews & 2012-2015 Trip advisor awards which to me were quite misleading. Although at first the owner was gracious during check in, WOW did her attitude change once we expressed our disappointments. The website boasted of offering “beautifully appointed rooms with the extras one expects from a first class establishment” I... More

This guest was here for a grand total of 30 minutes. Five minutes after checking in, they complained about a smell in their room. Upon immediate investigation the room smelled only of whatever can of "fresh air spray" she decided to empty into the air, making it impossible to tell whether the room indeed had a "funny" smell or not....

Horrible. Dirty. Hot. Mold. Pool and hot tub people were having sex in. There was gaps around the ac unit that you could see outside. We were given a fan. The temp stayed at 80 inside the room. Dirty coffee cups. Napkins had coffee stains. No shower curtain. When we complained we were verbally attacked by older woman that runs... More

Firstly, you saw people having sex in the hot tub and the pool and you didn't mention this to anyone?! What am we supposed to do, fit everyone with chastity belts and ankle locators when they check in? That's all on you. Next, the shower curtain had been removed for cleaning and had not yet been replaced when Lisa decided... More

The owner was very pleasant and accomodating. Very attentive to our needs. We have beent there twice last year, can not wait to be able to go again this summer. Pets are welcome, they just want to know. Across the street from the beach, but beach chairs and umbrellas are complimentary

Rooms were clean and kept clean during our stay. The garden around the pool and hot tub were well taken care of. Very... More

First of all, I don't even understand how anyone could say anything bad about this place. I am very picky when it comes to hotels, but I only have positive things to say about the Wisteria Inn. My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights with our lab recently. I can only recommend this place to anyone- with or... More

Trip Advisor makes this place look great. Don't listen! It is a dump with paint. The owner has made this place look fantastic on-line. The lobby, the front facade, the landscaping looks great. It is all smoke and mirrors. The rooms are little, Motel 6 dumps. Even the reviews look good. How this people managed to appraise this place anything... More

We're sorry this guest was so disappointed with his one night.. Yes it's old, but we have provided excellent mattresses, nice towels and soaps, bathrobes, coffee and a fridge ... to wit, the things that make a room comfortable. Sorry he didn't look at our web site, which never claims to be a B & B. We continually try to... More
