Palmetto Inn & Suites
Ranked #10 of 48 Hotels in Panama City Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 1, 2007

This was our first trip to Panama City, and didn't know what to expect. We were more than pleased! After checking in we rode around and looked at some of the other places we had looked into and boy did we luck out! The place was extremely clean and nice, and the staff were wonderful. We did not see the staff unless they were needed and when they were they were there in just a few minutes. We live and South Carolina and love the beaches there, but because of the great expereience we had here we will definately be makeing the drive back to Panama City and Palmetto Inn and Suites. I will admit the parking was tight but you will have to deal with that any where and it was just as close as if you had to park in some of those parking garages, much better. We walked to Winn Dixie and the Boars Head Resturant was very nice and actually very reasonalbe, actually paid less for a great meal there than at Pineapple Willie's which was a rip off! Also we stayed on the ground floor which I was worried about, beacause of noise, etc, but it was great!!! We will actuallly request that the next time, just walked right out of our room to the pool and beach and didn't have even go in the lobby at all except to check out, I can not recomend this place enough, Can't even think of one thing to complain about. House keeping was wonderful and even filled the ice tray for us! There still are reasonabally priced great places that still care about customer service without breathing down your throat! We stayed in a King Motel Room and it was much much larger than you average room, loved it, loved it, loved it !

We spent 4 days at the Palmetto in June. This was the 2nd time we have been there. The staff is extremely helpful and our room was perfect! The hotel was kept immaculate. I would recommend this hotel to anyone! Great family hotel. The only slight negative would be sometimes the parking is a little frustrating but always had a place to park. We will be back!

We recently stayed at The Palmetto Motel at the recommendation of friends. What a great place to stay. We had a deluxe queen suite that came complete with a full kitchen, dining area, living room. large bedroom with 2 queen beds, decent sized bathroom and an oversized balcony overlooking the gulf. The property was well maintained and the staff was quick to rectify any problems. The pool area was very nice and well maintained. The staff would answer questions and give good recommendations. This motel caters to families but I also saw couples and even teams who were there for ball tournaments. The motel is located on the west side of Panama City Beach so it's a little quieter and you may have to drive alittle but the peace is worth the drive. We'll definitely be back!

The room was very nice. It was large, colorful, and clean. It had a large fridge, microwave, and iron. The people were pleasant. It was right on the beach and had a wonderful balcony view of the ocean. However, I have never stayed at a hotel where the coffee in the lobby wasn't free. Also, there were not any ice machines. We had to buy ice. I thought this was tacky for a room that cost $160.00. Other than that and the lack of parking, the stay was pleasant.

Thanks TripMates (trip advisor users). Your feedback pushed us into the direction of this motel. We will add to the recommendations made so far (we also gave it 5 stars due price, staff, cleanliness, and convenient to local attractions). The combination of the close location to the beach (throw a frisbee from your room to the beach), the decent size pool with a hot tub, and large rooms with amenities to help you stay awhile will bring us back again!

We rented a queen suite which was plenty of room for two adults and two boys (6 and 8 year old). I actually fell asleep the first night on the balconey reclining chair to the sounds of the ocean waves breaking 50 feet away.

The staff was courteous, spoke English, and will provide dinner ideas. The hotel is somewhat still under renovation with final touches being completed.

Parasailing and jetski rentals are only 3 blocks to the west on the beach. The hotel puts out courtesy inflatable floats for the kids and the grownups.

The price of the hotel was reasonable in comparison to other hotels in the area.

Only negatives:
No facilities for meals at hotel. Soda vending machines and half empty snack machine in lobby. You have kitchens large enough to cook but you will want to run to the local grocery store for supplies (Publix 3 miles to the left and 3 miles to the right-north on CR 79) including dishwasher soap liquid.

Our dishwashwer was new but did not work. We believe the water line was not turned on to the dishwasher. We did not use it until the morning of checkout. We hated leaving dishes to be washed behind.

Other items:
Recommend the Treasure Ship for the kids for dinner. Pirates making sword balloons and face painting. Meals were reasonable price. Be careful...if you buy the pirate souvenier cups they still charge for the soda on top of it.

We also drove 20 minutes to the west (SR 30A) to Seaside where they filmed the movie "The Truman Show". Had lunch and walked around the town.
