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. We drove to Panama City beach and found this hotel and they rented us a room! We so happy to get... More

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! The staff was great, our room was clean, and if we needed anything all we had to do was ask. The room was nice and spacious for the... More

We stayed here April 8 - 11. We enjoyed our time at Palmetto. We stayed on the beachside (a must do!) Beautiful views! The hotel was clean! We loved the fact that we were steps from the beach! Our 11 year old son loved the fact that they have a snack bar with snow cones, ice cream and snacks at... More

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

Thank goodness you have to be 25 or older to check in at this hotel ! It it TOTALLY an oasis from spring break craziness. Loved the kitchen! There are pots, pans, plates, a fridge, a stove and microwave. It is a few minutes walk from Winn Dixie so that makes it easier and cheaper then eating out. We had... More

We love this hotel and we are really confused by some of the reviews because it's always been nice and quiet and never had a problem. It's the only hotel we choose because of the great and affordable price and it's low key atmosphere away from the spring breaker crowd and nice staff and guests. The hot tube is nice... More
