While on business in PCB I decided to stay on the Beach instead of my normal Hilton property, so I cruised down Front Beach looking for a clean and reasonably priced place to stay. The Palmetto was a great option and it was $25 less expensive than the local Hampton and $50 cheaper than the Hilton Garden Inn. Nice folks and the owners live on property and that type of "pride in ownership" is hard to find from "chain operated inns". My highest regards to Rick and the staff at the Palmetto for a surprisingly good experience on my two night stay at their hotel. I look forward to bringing my family back on my next trip down from Kansas City and if you are flying to PCB, the Palmetto has a free airport shuttle that can save you the hassle and expense of renting a car if the beach is truly your sole destination. Safe travels!
