We were only planning a weekend trip before all of our teenagers started school or college, so were really only looking for someplace directly beach-side, that was a decent place to stay. We've stayed at other hotels in the area—big-chain hotels—and either weren't happy with the rooms or the atmosphere. This was NOT the case with Palmetto Inn. The staff were always smiling and helpful, whether at 9:00am or 11:30pm. The room was very clean, even the dishes, which isn't usually the case. The one time we saw the cleaning staff they were very nice, didn't have any issues with us not being ready for them to clean our room, and had already come and cleaned by the time we returned from the beach just a short while later. The pool was a big issue with my son, who LOVES to swim, and unlike every other hotel we've ever stayed at that closes their pool at 9-10 at night, Palmetto keeps theirs open til midnight so you can go play all day and swim, or relax in the hot tub, all night. What little sand was in the pool late that night was gone before it opened the next morning. We even saw the staff taking painstaking care to "vacuum" it out. Both my husband and I were very pleased with our stay at this hotel and will stay here again the next time we come down to PCB! The only problem I saw was parking. The parking lot beach-side is very small and most times you have to park across the street. This wasn't an issue with us since it was past the summer crowd and traffic was very light, but I could see it being a problem in the height of the season or if someone had small children.
