“Wonderful Hotel!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

My Husband and I just returned from Palmetto Inn and Suites. We stayed from 5/31-6/3. The hotel is in a great location on the quiet end of PCB. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance as well as a grocery store, CVS, and liquor store. We had a beachfront King Motel room on the top floor with breathtaking views. The room had a microwave and a good size fridge. I was able to look into a queen efficiency also while I was there and it has a separate living room and it was still spacious.
The only concern that I have about the room were the pillows. They were very flat. I had to place a blanket under a pillow in order to get comfortable. Other than that, the room was fine. Plenty of channels on the tv, the shower had plenty of water pressure and the views were awesome. Also, the staff was very nice and helpful. The pool was clean and I would definitely recommend this hotel to other people and would definitely return here.

Room Tip: All beachfront rooms have a great view

My husband and I stayed at the Palmetto this past weekend. This was our second visit, and we were once again impressed. Our first visit was during a quick one night beach trip in January 2013, and we received a good rate for a beachside room. The beachside rooms have a mini-refrigerator, microwave, and a balcony overlooking the pool/gulf. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. The staff even let us view the room prior to making a definite decision to book. The heated pool and hot tub were nice as well, especially since it was January at the time.

This past weekend, we chose to stay on the Northside in order to save a little money. For the length of our entire stay, it was about $100 cheaper than the beachside rooms. We were given a room at the end of the building, which still allowed us to see the gulf across the road. I wouldn't hesitate to say that the Northside room was even cleaner than the beachside room. Everything including the bathroom, bed, mini-refrigerator, microwave, and floor was clean and fresh. A lot of hotels have a funny smell, but we had no problem with this room. Room service also brought fresh towels upon request.

All in all, this is a great place to stay! Keep in mind that it is a hotel and there is nothing fancy about the rooms, but it provides everything you really need and is super clean, which is what matters. Management is very friendly and helpful. The pool area is clean, there are grills and pavilions for guests to use, and even toys for the kids to play on in the sand. Upon checking out, we were allowed to stay parked on the property and use the beach in front of the condo for the rest of the day. If you are looking for a deal, don't miss out on this one!

A friend recommended the Palmetto Inn as a place for a spring break trip in April. We stayed on the beach side -- all rooms have doors on the street side and windows and balconies facing the beach. The room was very clean and had a refrigerator and microwave. As others have mentioned, the location is on the quiet end of PCB. We walked every evening on the beach to Pier Park for dinner and home via the street. As a matter of fact, we arrived on Sunday and did not move our car until we left on Friday! Great location, lovely pool and so close to the beach! We will definitely go back! We did not use the handicap facilities, but for those interested this hotel seems very handicap friendly, for instance chairs to lower people into the pool and hot tub. Our room had wide doors and extra space in the room and bathroom.

My husband and 8 year old daughter met our college friend and her 11 year old for the Memorial Weekend Holiday. All the great reviews we have read were the total description of this wonderful hotel. Clean, well kept, perfect location. Walking distance to grocery and liquor stores as well as restaurants. Enjoyed use of one of the several gas grills located on both sides of the highway. Loved our stay sp much that our friend booked a stay over the 4th of July weekend and we can't wait to go back!!!!

Oh the Palm!! We randomly picked the Palmetto our first time in PCB and we probably will always stay here. Love the location. It's on the other end of PCB which I like better. Close to Pier Park which has Wal-Mart, Target and lots of restaurants. McDonalds and Arby's are 1/2 mile away too. We always stay across the street at the North Motel because it's cheaper. No beach views but it's just a short, easy walk across the street and through the lobby to get down to the beach. Worth the savings to us. Parking is more convenient at the North Motel too. During the day, you can usually park where you can see your car. But if you come in late at night, you gotta park around the side. No biggie and I never felt too worried but I like to park where I can see my car. Our room had 2 full beds which weren't terrible but not the most comfy either. You might want to bring your own pillows. I like flat pillows and they were too flat for me! We were surprised by the size of the fridge and freezer. I was expecting tiny but it fit all our drinks and sandwich meat. We used the ice cube trays in the freezer for our coolers or you can buy ice in the main lobby. They've upgraded the door locks(they used to have keys,now cards) and new a/c. Housekeeping does a really great job here. Room was kept very clean and we're pretty picky about that. My only complaint is that there were no hand towels. You had to use a wash cloth to dry your hands. Another surprise: THE SHOWER WAS AMAZING! It was nice coming in after a day at the beach and having great water pressure and hot water. It was quiet and I always felt safe. This place even had an air hose to blow up floats. I love this place! Well worth the money! Thank you Palm for another great vacation!!

Highly recommend this very reasonably priced, beachfront hotel with large outdoor pool, baby pool, hot-tub, gas grills complete with lots of lounge chairs and several deck areas to choose from. All rooms have balconies facing ocean. Large rooms with fridges & microwave.

The staff & owner is very friendly and accommodating. We asked for upper floor and were given a room on the top floor.

Big Pro - this hotel is similar to a resort, but they do not charge a "resort fee" or "cleaning fee" like most condos and other hotels do in the Panama City Beach area.

Only drawback is that they do allow people to smoke on balconies - which can really be offensive to non-smokers in neighboring units! It really makes breathing and relaxing on your own balcony very difficult. Of course, you cannot stop people from smoking especially when there is a bucket of sand on the balcony to be used as an ashtray.

Would definitely recommend and plan to stay here again!

Wonderful relaxing and worth every penny. Farther from the hustle and bustle side of town. All you need is in walking distance of the hotel. A shopping food store and a few fine restaurants. Shops for souvenirs. Hot coffee in the morning by pool and Gulf Coast. This is our second year here and hope take this an annual event
