There are just not enough GOOD things I can say about this hotel....First of all, the entire hotel is Spotlessly CLEAN, which is of most importance when traveling with a toddler! I read alot of the reviews on the Palmetto prior to my stay, and let me say that all of the positive reviews are TRUE and anyone that is not happy with their stay here is just one of those people who can't be pleased.....Every morning, the pools, hot tub, and entire pool deck were cleaned, we saw this first hand from our ocean front balcony....A family friendly atmosphere that is big enough, but not too big for those with small children in your party. Easy to keep an eye on the kids and enjoy yourself too. Awesome, large, heated pool right on the beach! We had a deluxe queen suite with a full kitchen, complete with utensils, plates, etc., two flat screen tv's, and were ocean side. Cleaning service had been in our room everyday by the time we returned back from the beach/pool for lunch. I do believe however, if you want your bed linens changed that you may need to specially request this on longer stays, but I am definite the request would be welcomed. Our sheets were not changed during the course of a 4 night stay, but I didn't ask for this. One day, the cleaning lady was wiping down the exterior of the front doors! There is a snack bar complete with a snow cone option that my daughter absolutely loved and once she got the first one, it became a daily request of hers. There is an adequate gift shop down in the lobby area, and free daily newspapers as well. There are two large covered pavillion areas, one of each end of the pool deck with gas grills for those grill masters who like to cook. Great views of the ocean, clean hotel, and FAIR prices to boot! There are many options for all at the Palmetto. Across the street from the beachside is the motel side, with an indoor pool area, and cheaper rates if you don't mind walking two seconds across the street to the beachside. The only downside to this place is there is really not adequate parking on the beachside hotel, so you will probably have to park on the motel side. But, you may luck up and get a parking spot beachside. There is security at the hotel, so no big issue. I always felt safe while there. Convenient to many area attractions and restaurants. SOME of the front desk staff were friendlier than others, but that is everywhere. The owner was very pleasant, and she spoke to us daily when at the pool, or passing through the lobby and always called my daughter by name. I plan to stay here again, even though I have access to stay at one of the Finest Resorts in the area through a family member for free. Once again, if visiting Panama City, you really owe it to yourself to try the Palmetto Inn and Suites. Oh, and for the reviewer who didn't like the fact that no pets are allowed at this hotel, but the owners dog is always there....ONE CAN MAKE THEIR OWN RULES WHEN THEY ARE THE OWNER....and I'm a dog owner, this didn't bother me, I just made arrangements for my dog. This was a stressful time, as my trip was originally scheduled to Disney world for me, my husband and my 3 year old daughter...needless to say, it ended up being me and my daughter alone in Panama City at the Palmetto and I can't think of a better place for a mother and daughter to relax, bond and just enjoy one another's company in a safe and fun environment. Nor can I think of a better place to be while divorce papers are in the process! Thank you Palmetto...Honestly, it seems as though you come as a guest, but feel like family upon leaving. One final note....many of the guests I spoke with have been returning here to this hotel for over 10 years so alot of REPEAT business!
