“Pleasantly Surprised!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

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!

Room Tip: The corner rooms have a nearly 180 degree view of the beach!

Exactly what we expected based on the prior reviews. Clean, fairly priced, good location, outdoor amenities easily accommodate a lot of people. Beach amenities/rentals are available at the bottom of the steps to the beach.

Nice stay end of march. The pool was heated so the kids could still swim and we could also use the pool at the other part of the hotel (across the road), plenty of parking available. All in all a nice stay with great value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a room towards the beach for the greatest views, the other side has an indoor pool however

We loved this place! Down on quieter end of beach, but very close to big shopping center. Our room was extremely clean, the pool and hot tub were nice, can't wait to go back! The only thing that wasn't 100% perfect was the parking, I have a bigger truck and that made parking harder.

This is not a swanky expensive place where I would have a hard time relaxing, just the opposite.i love the family atmosphere and that it's not taken over by students.the beach is breathtaking and any amenity you may need is right at your fingertips.

We have stayed here the last 3 years on vacation and we love it. We love the beautiful views from the balcony and the short distance to the beach. We also like the fact that it doesn't seem to be as crowded with spring break cruisers as it is a little bit farther east on Front Beach Road.
There are a few restaurants and a Winn Dixie within walking distance. We will definitely be back again next year.

We took our daughter to Panama City for her Spring Break. We stayed at Palmetto Inn & Suites again. All I can say is that I love love love this hotel. When we arrived, I was checked in by the owner. Had I not commented on the pictures on the counter (which I assumed where photos that guest has sent) I would have never know it was the owner. She was so sweet and personable, the customer service started with her and it just kept going. All of the staff were friendly and always greeted you with a smile and a hello. I love the fact that this hotel is located away from the "Pier". If you are looking for a nice quite place to stay and enjoy the beach and not have to worry about a lot of traffic and loud night life, this is it. The worst part about this hotel was leaving. We are always a little sad when we have to pack and go back to reality. Once, again keep up the great work Palmetto Inn & Suites.
