We were pleased that the Palmetto has remained such a great place to stay. This is a well maintained hotel that is kept spotless by the cleaning staff. The building and grounds, which includes a beautiful pool with lounge chairs, has plenty of space for privacy as well as company. We have only stayed beach side, enjoying the private balcony...

We've been home almost a week and I still look at the photos every day. My family spent a week in a queen suite on the 7th floor. The suite was spacious, we never felt crowded. The balcony was large with an amazing view. The kitchen was better stocked than I expected, and we were able to eat very well... More

I found the Palmetto on Trip Advisor in 2009 and I'm glad I did. It was rated #1 for a reason back then and it's still #1 as far as I'm concerned. The rooms are clean, the showers are hot, the view from the balcony is awesome, the heated pool is fantastic, and the staff is simply as good as... More

The Hotel met our needs and then some! We had a reservation at a different hotel in Panama city, coming in in the middle of the night, never dreaming the hotel was in such a seedy part of town.

If you are looking for a great family hotel, look no further! I vacationed there with my husband and 8 year old son during our Easter Break, April 3rd through April 10th!

We stayed here right after the unrest related to PCB spring break made the news. They failed to mention in the news that there is essentially two parts to PCB. Palmetto Inn is located at the west end, which is a very quiet, family friendly area. Palmetto is very clean, the beds are very comfortable. It is more a motel... More

The place is nothing fancy, if u are staying there, stay on beachside. NORTH side units are basically old motel rooms. But small, clean establishment. Words of caution, beach chairs r rented thru separate company, and guy running stand is very unprofessional. Quotes random prices. Avoid him. But most staff running desk and phone are nice, 1 was less than... More
