“One of the Nicer La Quinta properties”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Having traveled with our Yorkies across many states- we normally stay at 'friendly' La Quinta locations. Some have been the older 'version' of room design and/or poor quality mediocre cleanliness. However, this property is a very nice and a newer location 'high' rise, with 6 floors and multiple (3) elevators, rather than ONE only central elavator. Our King Exec Room sported all the 'Norms' of a mini Micro, mini refrig (but no freezer capability), and the always "hard" sofa sitting/sleeper as expected. Do keep in mind that La Quinta's Bright Side "breakfast" has always been on the lower side in definition of a 'real' and healthful breakfast, and this location is no different in not offering any "also" added features. Cleanliness overall of the room (carpet actually being reasonably clean, furniture tops/drawers, mirrors, etc), outside bldg grounds, hallways, and entrances, were better than most in the chain and even other more expensive hotel name brands. This could be also due that we were traveling off-season in the winter (Feb), and not during any high traffic or spring breaks to the beach areas with most of the crowd being more mature and seasoned travelers. This La Quinta is directly 'next door' to a very nice Hilton Garden Inn and both share the same square corner of the nice large Panama City shopping Mall. Most of the businesses (Rest. & retail) in the area appreciative of having 'winter' business volumn in addition to the smaller 'local' resident dollars.
However, that being said, the Red Lobster location literally next door on E 23rd St., and on the side lot of the Mall, is a smaller version mini unit with the 'open' Bar service in the middle of the restaurant. The restaurant 'Building' itself is a regular representation of the "Red Lobster" chain- but that is all that it is in it's similiarity. On a very medium to slower traffic early Sunday night 2/10/13, and being surrounded with 4 quality Hotels (La Quinta, Hilton, a nice Comfort Inn and Holiday Inn) and an open major mall - service was below 'standards' and should be avoided. This is in reference to an earlier positive La Quinta reviewer that had "lamented" that they 'ran out of time' to be able to visit the restaurant "next door", by rather simply going 1 block to Bob Evans, FishBone, Outback, Olive Gard, Lone Star, or ETC.
To future visitors you will do well to visit this La Quinta because of the location, it is Very easy to visit St Joe, Mexico Beach, other many possible 'pull off' beach areas, and the downtown and Marina areas of Panama City, Florida. Keep in mind that this is -Not- the "Panama City Beach" area, nor is it the "Beachiest" overly commercial area as most people think of when coming to Florida. Within 2 to 3 miles you can easily find many quality dining, shopping, and "Gulf" opportunities.
However, that being said, this was only a 2 day stop-over in waiting as we are on the way to a "beachfront" week stay 40 miles west of here. .

This is a relatively new property. As usual, we use Tripadvisor to select hotels. Very clean and great staff. It does help to have AAA for a discount that you may not find otherwise. The free breakfast was very good.
