“Unbelievable Bargain (off season) -- Stunning Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We visited Palmetto Inn in January, which is off season. This was the most amazing value I can imagine. The property is right on the beach and has a wonderful pool. The room had a balcony with an ocean view. There was a kitchenette in the room as well. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpful and friendly. They have a coffee machine in the room but there is also free fresh brewed coffee in the lobby all the time. I can't say what this property is like during the high season but if you go during off season I can't imagine you will find a better place to stay for the price.

Room Tip: We were on the 7th floor. I believe all the rooms have an ocean view. I can't really think of...

The Palmetto Inn and Suites is a gem. As other reviews have stated rooms are a little out dated. Everything is clean and well cared for. Upon our arrival the staff at the front desk were very professional and sweet. Views are awesome and the beach is beautiful. Prices were reasonable.

The Palmetto is a wonderful property. Not fancy but clean, comfortable, friendly and the price is right. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The beach was beautiful. The hot tub and pool were clean and the perfect temperature. The snacks in the lobby were priced right and the coffee was hot and delicious. Unless you are looking (and willing to pay for) all the amenities of an upscale resort you can't go wrong with the Palmetto.

I Loved it here! It was my first time in Florida and this hotel was great for my girlfriend and me. Loved stepping onto sand as soon as you leave the hotel from the ocean side. Loved waking up to the view in the mornings. We stayed on the 7th floor and it was fantastic. Only a couple things I wish were different was the parking, which wasn't too much of a big deal. You have to park across the street if you can't find a spot downstairs (I think there was about 10 spaces total downstairs). Also it was a bit far from popular bars like Pineapple Willy's. Other than that I loved it. Close to Park Pier which was nice. Went beginning of October for my birthday and the weather was very nice. Not cold and not humid and hot. The price was also excellent! No cleaning fees or Florida taxes. I will definitely be back here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor! The view is gorgeous!

Everyone has a balcony overlooking pool, hot tubs and beach. Refrigerators and microwaves are in the rooms. No free breakfast or ice machines, but they do sell items in lobby. The rooms are dated, typical Florida style, but big and clean. They have an indoor pool across the street, but their outdoor ones are heated...even in January. There is a nice pavilion if you want to grill or eat by pool/ocean. Lots of restaurants around the area too.

Room Tip: All rooms face the beach, pool and hot tub but corner rooms give you an extra window on the side.

We stayed at this hotel to bring in the new year. We were tired of the late night parties at home and wanted a nice escape for just the two of us. Great view..great staff...clean and quiet.
You can really tell that the maintenance staff works hard to keep the facility in top shape.
We will stay there again!!!

Room Tip: Stay in the hotel with a beach view. the third floor is great.

Stayed for a week and had a great view and was impressed with the cleanliness of the room and friendliness of the staff. I'd stay again if I were to return to the area.

Good: staff--even at odd hours and holidays they were kind and efficient. Clean rooms with fresh paint. Warm pretty pool and easy access to the beach. Great views

Could be improved: hot tub temp felt cooler than pool but did not mention to front desk. Walls seem a little thin but not unusual for beach hotels.

Overall, a terrific value with clean rooms and a killer view
