“Beautiful beach views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Stayed 4 nights at spring break, lots of families as you might expect. Had 5th floor room out of 7 floors total; all rooms have beach view. There's another portion of the property across the street that is 2 stories, more like a typical motel. Outdoor pool is heated, kids' pool and jacuzzi there too. Indoor pool across the street with kids' pool. Parking relatively limited, but didn't have to park offsite; no security for parking though. No wifi in rooms, just in lobby; there is an ethernet cable in the room, both are free.

We had kitchenette, which worked out well. Kitchen utensils are rather limited, 5 of everything. Bring your own paper towels, scrubbies if you want them. No D/W, so be prepared to wash them by hand. Sink was single compartment, which made hand washing a little more difficult. No ice bin in freezer, two ice trays.

Room was adequate and in good shape. Balcony off room.

Staff was friendly and courteous.

I'd definitely come back!

Room Tip: Anything above 2nd floor should have a good view of the Gulf.

My daughter and I just returned from the Palmetto Inn & Suites. I had never been to PCB and chose the Palmetto because it is smaller than the larger high rise hotels. Our experience was wonderful!! The staff are friendly, helpful, courteous. The rooms are clean and spacious. The view from our 6th floor balcony was absolutely beautiful! We chose to use their courtesy shuttle service to and from the hotel. The driver was prompt and very friendly. The Palmetto is perfectly situated near the grocery store, a pharmacy, several fast food places, and a mile walk to Pier Park. The hotel is quiet and so family oriented. Every staff member makes their guest feel like family. The beach, pool area, and grounds are meticulous, and well maintained. The Palmetto was a great find and I can not wait to return to PCB and stay at the Palmetto!

Room Tip: The rooms on 5th floor and above have amazing views of the beach and coastline.

My family of five (2 teens, 1 20-something and two 50-ish parents) stayed a night each way on the road to Tampa. We wanted a nice place on the beach where we could cook in a kitchen (my husband is a chef, so why go out to eat most of the time?) and have a great view. The Palmetto was a great choice. We got a big suite on a high floor with two Queen beds, a living room with sofa bed and nice large terrace overlooking the ocean. The pool and whirlpool are excellent, as is the lovely deck/terrace area around the pool overlooking the ocean. The beach is beautiful, clean, sugar sand, and watching the sunset after arriving was a definite high point on our trip there. The staff was so friendly and accommodating - we were there during the off season, so they made sure to give us a high floor with the best ocean views, and they really were super helpful (we showed our appreciation by sharing one of my husband's nicely cooked filet mignon on our return trip through). The little weight/workout room is a nice plus, and I saw they also had a gameroom, which younger kids probably love. My athlete son took a run on the beautiful beach, I enjoyed the hot whirlpool, and all in all it was a great break during a grueling road trip from Austin to Tampa. Will definitely go back!

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room on a high floor - they also have a sister hotel across the road with an i...

We read the reviews before booking with Palmetto Inn & Suites, and they certainly lived up to all our expectations (which are high)! The staff are wonderful, rooms are spacious, and view is "to die for!" It is removed from the main hustle/bustle, yet close enough to walk to that if you wish. My companion and I could not have been more pleased with our stay, and will DEFINITELY return again.

We were in Florida and never explored this area...known as the "Panhandle". We read all the reviews for the Palmetto and couldn't get over how all were so positive and on this basis alone, we made the reservation. We arrived and were promptly greeted . The front desk staff is just so "friendly" you feel like one of the family. They had all our information, gave us a map of the area, and when they told us we were on the 6th floor we were really excited. Having read earlier reviews, we learned that the higher up..the better the view, but to be honest...any floor gives one a great view of the ocean. Our room was just beautiful...roomy and with 2 beautiful large windows...one of which was facing the ocean from our bed...who could ask for more! We had a refrigerator and microwave, large bureau, and a great table with 4 chairs and a lounging chair and still plenty of room. It was very clean and had a tropical theme in decor that made one think you were in paradise and we felt that we were. Our weather was cool but they have a great heated pool,plenty of lounging chairs, hot tub and plenty of areas to sun bathe. It was an easy walk to the beach, where the sand was so clean and looked like sugar. Parking is limited on both sides of the hotel, but they own property across the street where there is plenty of parking for everyone. The hotel is within walking distance to restaurants, gas, and a grocery store. From the hotel it is any easy ride to all that Panama Beach has to offer.
We just loved our stay and enjoyed meeting the staff who were very friendly. You will feel like family too when you stay. We hope to return to this area again and have no doubt we will be returning to the Palmetto Resorts.Thank you for giving us such a great visit....

Room Tip: Every room is terrific...the views are outstanding!

We stayed at the Palmetto for 7 nights in mid February. Loved the view of the gulf from our balcony at an extremely reasonable price. Very clean room. Beautiful pool and deck area right on the beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Conveniently located...a nice walk down the beach to the pier and the pier park mall about a mile and a quarter east. Planning on staying here again.

Extremely nice staff, larger than normal rooms that are kept super clean. Room had a nice sized refridge and microwave...also very clean! I like the hotel location, as it is not so much in the commerical section of the beach strip. Lots of "snow birds" stay here and this makes for a very social, friendly atmosphere. Pool was heated and also very clean. My only small nit-picks were the lack of bathroom amenities...no shampoo, conditioners, lotions...only bars of soap were on the sink.....however, you could ask at front desk and they will provide. Also there were no bath mats provided for the floor. Rooms have Ethernet connect . Wireless was only provided in the lobby. Overall impression was great....You really can't go wrong with a stay at this place!

Room Tip: We had Room 7601, which is a corner suite, so it had two huge windows....one facing oceanfront with...
