“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The palmetto inns is a wonderful place to relax! Me and my wife enjoyed watching the sun rise in the morning from our couch beutiful! The airport however is a pretty good way's, we found a taxi servive named Beach boys shuttle. They were an amazing transportation source and very reasonably priced going back to the airpory. we will undoubtably with no hesitation come back here again. we are alreaedy planning a return trip but this time Beach boy,s shuttle will pick us up from the airport as well!!!! Thankk you palmetto for the memories

I paid 75 for a kitchenette off season with a gulf view. It was nice and clean and had a kitchen.
This was an older motel across the street that built an add on 6 story on the beach. Right before the stock crash and oil spill. Dont know who owns it currently. I would stay again . I wouldnt go near PCB in the summer season. Absurdly hot and humid and crowded. Stupid.

My husband and I have stayed here every May since 2008. We are from Germany and enjoy the convenience of the Palmetto. It is located closed to the new Pier Park and lots of shopping. The rooms are spacious, clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoy the fact that it is relatively quiet in May before the summer holidays in the US. Also, the hotel has two Gazebos with grills and tables that can be used to cook out and watch the sunset.

Lovely location right on the beach with a beautiful outdoor pool and a very warm indoor pool right across the street at their non beachfront hotel. We were there with our son and his family including three small children. We had 2 deluxe Queen suites which were perfect with full kitchens and eating areas. Perfect for families and the spectacular views were free! The front desk folks were also so helpful. Definately will return.

Room Tip: Easy walk to grocery,drug store and a great local restaurant.

Got here around 4PM and scheduled a round of golf for the next day. Went off of reviews posted on TA and was not disappointed. Rate was good, (around $100) for a king suite. The hotel is pretty far from the shops and restaurants of the beach area but it was just a short drive. Unfortunately, my wife and I decided to walk down the beach, which was not bad, but the walk back was not so good as it got cool and we had flip flops and shorts on. Bad choice on our part!! But the hotel was good, a little dated as the kitchen looked like something out of the 60's but since we were there for the beach, did not affect our opinion of the property. The front desk was very helpful with restaurant choices and they had hot coffee in the lobby. I enjoyed the balcony and the views of the Gulf were spectacular!! Bed was comfy...

Stayed here in the past for up to a week.Last time I discovered they had special monthly rates in winter.Excellent value for snowbirds (November Thru February). Well satisfied with everything. Will return to this location as often as possible. No need for a rental car - trolly stops just footsteps away from entrance. I had a very peaceful and stress-free break in paradise. November is the best month to stay.

Room Tip: Higher floors have best balcony views

Just returned from another fantastic stay at the Palmetto. We had to go this time without reservations due to last minute plan changes. We called on the way down, they put us in a second floor beachfront queen efficiency, as they were pretty much booked. After we arrived we asked if there had been any cancellations as I love being on a higher floor. They were still full up, but offered to move us the next day to a higher floor! We were moved to the seventh floor the next day and enjoyed the rest of our stay to the fullest! The view was magnificent! We saw dolphins, rays and even a manatee one day! The room was fresh and clean as usual. We used the kitchen to have breakfast in the room each morning, it really helps cut food costs! We also used the gas grills to cook steaks one night and grilled chicken another!!! The balconies are perfect to enjoy your morning coffee while enjoying the view and listening to the waves, and perfect to watch incredible breathtaking sunsets from! The lobby provides free hot coffee, and other snacks and beverages are available for purchase. The gift shop offers beach toys and pool floats at very reasonable prices, there is even an air hose located near the pool to air up the floats. There are always plenty of lounge chairs in the pool area and on the 2 sun decks ! The hot tub is always very clean and hot! I cannot think of one bad thing about our stay!!! If you are looking for a very clean inviting beachfront hotel, at a very reasonable price, give The Palmetto a try!!!

Room Tip: 4th floor or higher rooms provide better views of the ocean and the creatures swimming by!!!
