I booked here after reading the reviews, usually they are pretty reliable on trip advisor, however this time I would say I was a little let down. This "motel" was easy to find, situated on the gulf, and relatively inexpensive. My husband and I stayed here for two nights. They have a beach side and another side across the street.... More

Palmetto Inn & Suites - #1 via TripAdvisor.com: Advice well taken! As we detest those large hotels with huge lobbies, multiple elevators to what seems like walking a mile to/from the room and especially when headed to the car/pool/beach, the Palmetto provided easy access. Clean, courteous employees results in “we will be back”! Another plus is we discovered nearby was... More

On the way home to Palm Coast Fl from New Orleans we stopped here for a break. Have to say that It was a great value, service was great and the room was good, especially the wonderful view of the Gulf. Had a simple double queen on the 5th floor with a balcony. Free coffee was OK downstairs in the... More

When I called to make reservations I was Quoted one price and when I got the confirmation letter I was charged more than I was quoted.

palmettobug75, Guest Relations Manager at Palmetto Inn & Suites, responded to this review

Since your reservation was during a rate change it is very possible that there was a misunderstanding about what the rate would be for all 3 nights. You had reserved a Regular Queen Suite for May 26th, 27th & 28th, which is during a rate change. The rate is higher for Saturday & Sunday night because it is Memorial Day... More

Staying at the Palmetto was PERFECT. Clean spacious rooms. I arise at 5:00 am every morning. The staff had fresh coffee ready and were already cleaning the pool area. They were helpful in every way. The view from the room was amazing. It was quiet when it was time to go yo bed(except for motorcycles because it was Bike Week).... More

This was our first time to stay at the Palmetto Inn but it will not be our last. We stayed in what they call a king hotel room. Our room was on the third floor on the end overlooking the hot tub.

I pretty much have to ditto what others have been saying about the Palmetto. We had a top floor corner room with a wonderful view. The pool is nicely heated and the hot tub is "hot". We were there when the property was not full so I can imagine things are a bit more chaotic when that is the case.... More

This was our first stay here and we loved it! I was happy to support a family owned hotel rather than some big corporation owned hotel. The price was unbeatable I called lots of other hotels.
