It's hard to find a hotel that will allow you to bring your dog (especially a big dog), and it's even harder to find a beach that we can drive to that will allow dogs. Well, Panama City has both. We chose the La Quinta near Pier Park because it's not far from the dog beach. I see some recent negative reviews, but we stayed in mid-August and had no complaints. They gave us a room on the first floor. Our window looked out to the pool area. They have a little area for your dogs to do their business and even provide baggies to pick up after your pup. The staff at the front desk was always friendly. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and we had no issues. The shower head wasn't my favorite (I'm short and the water seemed to try to beam me in the eyes, and it wasn't adjustable), but it was manageable. I know what wet dog smells like (trust me, we have two at home), but the hotel didn't smell like that to me. The rates were reasonable, the breakfast was fine, and the hotel is just a short drive from an Irish Pub we like, from the Dog Park, from Pier Park and from the dog beach. This La Quinta does appear to be a little older than say the one in Atlanta near the airport (and the rooms are smaller), but it's not a bad stay. I would recommend it to anyone traveling with a dog (because if you aren't traveling with a dog I would totally say stay in a condo on the beach!).
