We stayed at the Palmetto July 22 - 26. When I first called to book we booked a king oceanside. Then my cousin decided to join us so we wanted to upgrade to a Queen Deluxe Suite. I called one afternoon and a woman answered and when I told her we had a room booked but wished to upgrade she immediately told me they were booked for the entire week. I was disappointed. I called back the next day and a gentleman answered the phone and said sure, they had 3 or 4 deluxe suites open and would be happy to upgrade us. Hmmmm, I was told they were booked for the week, just yesterday. Anyway Great we can upgrade!
We arrived early on Sunday around 10:30 or so, and were able to check right in to our room. So that was wonderful! The room was very spacious, looks exactly as it does on the web-site. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The balcony had a great view and was spacious as well. The only things that bothered us about this motel were a) not ample parking, sometimes we couldn't find a spot unless we drove around and around. The extra parking lot is a little way from the motel across the street and if you park there, it's not lit up all well. So parking can be a hassle if you are out late at night. B) I didn't bring shampoo thinking this was a motel, so little bottle of shampoo would be in the room. Wrong. No shampoo, just soap. C) I didn't bring dishwashing detergent thinking there would be a little sample size to use. Wrong, we had to wash dishes by hand. They did provide the dish liquid. D) The room was always well cleaned, but they never cleaned the tile entryway, or the kitchen floor or the bathroom floor. May have swept them, but didn't seem to mop and I had to wipe down the kitchen floor a couple of times myself.
All in all, it was a pleasant experience. And I would stay here again. I do remember hearing about the elevator getting stuck while we were there. Somebody was talking about it but I didn't pay much attention to it. We used the elevators every day with no problems.
Oh yes, and there are no ice machines on the property either. YOu need to buy your own ice. They sell ice for $1.65 a bag beside the pool.
