“Indoor pool”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Cool indoor pool. Hotel is a little dated but, not many places to stay in the city. Across the street is the old mall. And there are a good numbers of places to eat hear the hotel. Will have to pay for breakfast unless you are a IHG member.

First let me say I was trying to get ON panama beach and they were all sold out. This hotel was the next best thing, close enough to all the action and not to far of a drive to the beach about 10-15 mins over the bridge. Check in was a breeze, very friendly staff that recognized me as a HI platinum member, offered advice about the area just like a travel agent. This is an older building in somewhat a residential area. It has been updated and was kept clean. However like older buildings it had it quirks like oh the electricity had brownouts several times and made the generator click in, this reset all the clocks and reset the a/c in our room. It was comfortable but an inconvenience to not have the elevator working, however, come check out time it was up and running once more. Employees worked hard to problem solve these issues quickly, but management may want to investigate updating the electric infrastructure and when they do, add some power outlets to the general dining area for laptop users like myself. My pet peeve other than the shower heads. Yes the dreaded HI brand shower heads, not this locations problem, just my first pet peeve before outlets. Lastly, our bathroom door did not close properly and I brought this to the GM's attention before leaving. Apparently this is a major deal for a 15 year old LOL Ok so this is a great little hotel to stop at as it is considerably less than the beach location but I didn't see that it should command $150/night. Call me fickle but a smaller town like the Perry FL HI was less at $100/night and had more amenities like happy hour and more breakfast choices. All in all it was a nice stay. While in the Panama City Beach visit Bob who runs the Duck Tour, it was fun and he offered allot of info as to the area.

Room Tip: Almost close to the action, we were on the second floor

Great place for a mini winter vacation. Room and Service were good. there was a mixed up in our online reservation, but the clerk handle inquickly and politely with a smile. Bonus was the indoor pool. Family of Four was a great value and breakfast for the kids were free ..will definitely stay again.

We just checked in and honestly we read super mixed reviews but it's great so far. Everything smells great. The staff have been very pleasant. The hotel doesn't look really old or dated. It's average. It fits the 3 stars. It's not luxurious but it's a good place. Clean bed is always my main concern. Large room. Good place just for sleeping while in Panama

I have stayed here a few times in the past while in the area for business. As many other reviewers have mentioned, the decor is absolutely dated & unique plus the staff are all very helpful & friendly.

The hotel is located in the city i.e. not the beach area but the beach is an easy drive from this location.

The rooms I've stayed in were all clean and the bathroom sports a "fire engine red" tub. Like I said, unique.

If you're in the area, this is a good hotel to stay at especially considering the price!

We lived 5 nights here for family vocation. It's an old hotel so not luxurious. $105/night is not bad. Staff are very nice and helpful. The only problem to us was it is far, about 15 miles 20 min, to the beach. But not too bad.

This hotel was clearly taken over by the Holiday Inn chain, because its characteristics are of no other ones I've been to. It has a very charming, classic feeling to the lobby. Because of the old-looking lobby, I was scared to see the room, but it was surprisingly pleasant and completely renovated. Very clean and comfy. The staff were exceptional, though. The check-in woman was so incredibly nice that she frequently went out of her way to make sure our taxi was there for us, or her genuine concern for whether we enjoyed our stay. The pool looked really cool, but we never used it. This hotel is not close to the beach, if that's what you're looking for. It was maybe a 15-20 minute taxi drive to the strip, and it costed us about $35.
