Traveled to the Palmetto Inn and Suites at Panama City Beach, this past November, and it was a great bang for the buck beachfront hotel. We stayed on the Beach front side, and were treated to a wonderful view of the Gulf, and the beach. The room, a two double bed unit, also included a kitchenette, which really came in... More

We have been coming to Panama City Beach for over 10 yrs, and this is the first time we chose to stay at the Palmetto. We had a very enjoyable stay. Our room was clean and comfortable. The housekeeping service was very efficient. We stayed on the North side, not on the beach. The room was spacious, with a very... More

We checked this place out on TripAdvisor and watched the video on youtube. According to the video it is family owned and operated. So, we thought why not give it a try. When we walked in the room, we were surprised at how smalltime room was. There was a small kitchen; a bathroom and two queen beds. When we got... More

We saved some money by staying in one of their rooms in the unit across the street from the beach. It was OK. It was clean and cheap, but nothing special. If we stay there again we will definitely spend the extra money for the beach-side of the property.

Nice place, very pretty sunset and nice and quiet during the off season. Varied of restaurants nearby on the beach. Very clean. Non-smoking. Friendly help. Wasn't a "Spring Break" type hotel. Pleasantly surprised.

All I can say is the beach is what made this place worth the money. We had a beachfront queen suite with a small kitchenette. It was clean enough, with uncomfortable beds and a few inconsistencies in my opinion. First, there was no dishwasher. Secondly, no hand towels? Third, and just plain and rather boring room; but the view was... More

Stayed a few weeks ago and it was clean and staff was friendly. Not sure what happened since, attempted to stay again while tile people were working on my home, and the front desk claimed they don't rent to locals??? Having stayed there before after a local friend suggested it, I was confused but not to worry I won't be... More

We have stayed at this motel several times over the years and plan to return next year. It is not a high rise and not fancy which is great with us. It is very clean with a friendly and professional staff. There are private balconies and ample outdoor amenities. Parking is limited on the beach side but adequate parking is... More

We have stayed at this motel twice and have enjoyed it both times. It is not a high-rise and not fancy; however, the rooms are clean and well maintained. We stayed in the queen suite which had two queen beds in the bedroom and a fold-out couch in the living/dining room area. There is a small balcony which gives you... More

We stayed on the Oceanside of the Inn for one night for the Emerald Coast Car Show. The Inn was in a good central location, and very easy to find. The room (King Efficiency) was huge with plenty of space for two, plus a nice little balcony to sit and watch the waves of the ocean. I did not realize... More
