Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Panama Canal, Panama

Reviewed 21 April 2012

We requested an early check-in and were assured there would be no problem. However upon arrival we were told to wait. After about 20 minutes we were told it would be "half an hour. ". We waited another 40 minutes and they said, "Five minutes.". In 5 minutes we were escorted to our room. There were no towels and we had to repeatedly ask for towels. The pool towels had to be requested at the front desk unlike other hotels where they are poolside. I. Would suspect that the help is working in fear of the US management and not there to serve the guest.

The Amador Inn and Suites is a long taxi ride from the airport. All rooms look out on the Canal.It's pleasant to sit on your balcony and watch the ships entering and leaving. A TGIF adjoins the hotel. We ate there for dinner. The food was fine. Panama uses the US dollar. They have duvets on the beds but there are blankets in the closet if you prefer.

A wonderful place to stay withe great views of the America's Bridge and Panama Canal. They served a full hot breakfast buffet. The location is very convenient! You can walk the Causeway to restaurants or along the long boardwalk. It's a clean and quiet part of Panama with very little traffic unlike the rest of the city.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for the canal view!

It was great to be out of the city and at a waterfront hotel. Had a canal view room and it was great to watch the ships passing to and from the canal. Very peaceful, although not a lot to do in the area. We never actually made it into the city, except for a tour of the old city, which was good, and I would definitely stay here again rather than in town. Plenty of space in the room, even with two double beds. Lots of drawer space, a room safe, mini bar etc. All in all, excellent value.

I travel to Panama City frequently and have been searching for a while for a decent hotel. Generally I feel that the value for the money in Panama City for hotels is really pretty crummy. I've had success staying at some of the smaller pensions, but for this particular trip we were traveling with a 10 year old which required a pool! I found the Country Inn and Suites very satisfactory and a heck of a lot better than other comparably priced hotels in Panama City where I've stayed.

The location is really very good for tourists. It is just a short ride to the Panama Canal or Casco Viego, and being situated at the start of the Amador Causeway, it is very convenient for a trip out there for lunch or dinner.

Our room was only ok, but again, pretty good for Panama City. It was very clean, everything functioned, and I was impressed with the quality of the bed. I think it is worth it to pay extra and get the canal view, we got the last room in the place and so it looked out over a parking lot which had construction quite early.

The pool is great! It looks out over the canal entrance and while swimming around you can see boats lining up. Breakfast wasn't anything to write home about, the fruit appeared as if it had been cut up days ago, but the other things were ok.

I know my review sounds kind of lukewarm, but really it is so much better than some other places I've stayed in this city for the same amount of money or more. I would recommend staying here.

We recently spent a week at the hotel and although there were repairs being done on the main floor, it was only a minor inconvenience. We especially enjoyed the breakfast, which was varied and well done. The room opens most every morning at 6 am, which is great for those who want to get an early start to the day. But it is open until 9:30 for those who want to sleep in a bit. The hotel location is nice, with a beautiful view of the Panama Canal entrance. The causeway is a nice place for a run or a walk and it leads to the 'island' where there are some nice restaurants. There are very few places to eat in the immediate vicinity and after 5 days of lunch at TGIF (which is attached to the hotel), we were hankering for something else. For the most part, the staff was very helpful, in spite of our pitiful Spanish.

Room Tip: In spite of its nice view of the canal, room 101 is located next to a room which the cleaning begin...

We were leaving early in the am for the Pearl Islands and wanted to stay close to the local airport. The location was perfect, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Panama but near the Causeway which offers wonderful restaurants, a wonderful view of the Bridge of the Americas and a nice place to walk. I highly recommend this location for a change of pace.

Room Tip: Book Poolside in order to view the bridge. Also book on the company web-site as it's less expens...
