La Cresta Inn is a nice, budget stay. located on a main road it is rather noisy and when we arrived into our rooms they were dirty in the bathrooms and needed a clean. The restaurant was adequate and good value, and the staff were very helpful. Forget the room they call a gym as it is really in need... More

The receptionist first sent us to a room that was dirty and unmade bed. Second room reeked of mildew, cheap polyester sheet, and dirty bathroom. Unfriendly staff. Breakfast was a joke. If you was a good hotel you will have to pay top dollars. In Panama they don't believe in customer service. Oh and dont trust the pillow...full of mold... More

This place is a dump. I had a view of the concrete wall 5 feet away, the windows did not lock which was scary bc the neighbors were so close. There were dirty boxers on my AC unit right outside my window. The room smelled awful and I'm not sure if the AC was even working (I didn't stay around... More

I stayed at this hotel overnight on 20th July after landing in Panama City and my flight to Bocas Del Toro wasn't until the next morning. A taxi took me straight there from the airport and I was booked in quickly. My room was a double room on the 3rd floor, luckily there was a lift as I was shattered... More

Appreciated the accommodation of early check in (in a.m.instead of after 3 p.m. as per Expedia reservation). Not a fan of poorly cleaned bathroom - debris/hair on floor including in shower. Front desk reception not overly friendly, mainly due to language difference. Manager speaks some English and could be more involved it seems as was only brought into picture by... More

This was our second time staying at La Cresta Inn. We had an overnight layover and didn't want to spend a lot of money. With its shuttle service to and from the hotel, it was very convenient. Breakfast was also included which was delicious. Actually my favorite there are the French Fries we had with a chicken sandwich the night... More

We stayed at this hotel in April 2013 and found it very pleasant and had to return this year on our visit to Panama. The hotel is located in a good location to walk to many locations, using Balboa Avenue, supermarket close by and their free shuttle buses to the mall and from the airport. This year a modest $2...
