We stayed at Balboa Inn with our 3 children (14, 12, 10) in a triple room. The owners were accommodating in that they allowed us to stay in a small room and add a bed (the quad was booked, as was the other inn in the area.) It was an average Euro type inn with a helpful owner. The beds were Euro style as well. The breakfast was ok and it was nice to sit outside and eat. Panama City is good for about a 1/2 day, to see the Locks and a quick daytime stroll through Casca Viejo (it's not a must, as it is beautiful in small parts and slummy in others.) Balboa Inn was very convenient (also near the bus station), and it was nice to be out of the downtown area in a more green area.
