We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn, Panama City, Florida. What a pleasant surprise. I read that the hotel had been renovated, but wow! They did a great job. The lobby and restaurants are so nice you can forget that you are in Panama City, the Redneck Riviera. We asked for a corner room and it was great. The bed... More

There for business, staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are the same, get a room away from the street for a quite room. Great big spot lights light all of the outside so getting a dark room may be hard to find. Breakfast is nothing special, buffet costs about $12 - so not a great deal.

The room was normal, it was clean, and average sized. Bed was comfortable. The front desk individuals were always helpful when i needed something.

I'm always hesitant to visit hotel buffets where the fare is some rubbery egg concoction served with limp bacon and greasy potatoes. Yuk.

The rooms are awesome in comparison to what they were when we stayed there a year or two ago. But every employee I saw, even just in passing, was very friendly and spoke and made the place feel like they really cared the people were there. Yes, I would go back. The bed was very comfortable.
