Excellent breakfast ! The needs are very comfortable and clean, and customer service very good as well. The hotel is very nice hotel in a great location to drive around and get to visit places, the canal tour is a few minutes away driving distance. The only negative is that the whirlpool is not hot al all

This hotel has all the basic amenities, nothing fancy but clean and convenient to the ferry and Allbrook Mall. We only booked for a few nights on our way to and from Contadora Island so it met our needs.

Nice quiet area with views of the ships entering and exiting the canal. Best rooms are on the upper floors on the canal side of the building. If you don't rent a car, taxis will be $10 to $15 to get into the city. A local cab or Uber will only charge you $5 to get back to hotel.

A hotle in the quite area of Panama City, seems close to the Canal, but I had no possibilities to have a look. The service is adequate, the airconditioning could benefit from an update and refurbishing. With tiles on the floor the room gets slippery. Attention! For the two days meeting and simple sleep-over this was a suffiently equipped hotel.

The Country Inn is looking and feeling a little tired compared with the numerous shinny new hotels that have opened down town. However, it is in a great position that allows you access to some important features of Panama City.

Hotel was clean but sterile feeling since it had tile floors and is so rambling. It feels like a large convention hotel. Bed was excellent and the included breakfast was more than adequate. Only downside was that the room was freezing and no matter how hard we tried, we could not get it to warm up. We never did call... More
