We recently stayed at the palmetto in Panama city beach. The hotel was nice but could use a few updates. The beaches were clean and the pools were great. We would definitely stay here again. The staff was wondeful and parking was excellent.

We loved the Palmetto! The staff accommodated us by shuffling rooms so we could stay the whole week. We don't care for huge high rise properties, we liked the Palmetto for it's great size and ease of getting around from the fast elevator to the closeness of the beach, pool, pavilions, gift shop. They have it all. Our room with... More

The room was simple but had ample space! I love that you didn't have to turn sideways to navigate around the beds or keep the chairs pushed in at the table. The full fridge was cold, the table was a *real* sturdy comfortable dining set. There was a wonderful, huge window overlooking the perfect glassy blue ocean. Once it heated... More

Another great girls trip to PCB! We choose the Palmetto each time because of the free airport shuttle, but when I drive down for New Year's, I 'm staying at the Palmetto because it is located in a quiet, peaceful area without the congestion and noisy crowds. Plus, it is family-owned, and they are super accommodating and friendly. Yes, the... More

We stayed here twice now, and it's simply a great place to stay. The rooms are nice and cozy . The views are spectacular, love the closeness of the ocean. The pool area is awesome and always so clean and inviting.

Watch out for this property. On some of the booking sites they show photos and ads of all oceanfront rooms. This is not true, they have rooms across very busy street that you are not made aware of. After doing more research on other sites I found I had been booked in one of the rooms across the street. I... More

The views and beach are amazing from the ocean front rooms. The prices are great! Service in the office was very friendly. Tiki bar was closed. No coffee or breakfast that we could see. This is an older hotel that was clean and comfortable but in need of a few things like new bathroom tile, hand towels, bath mat, shampoo,... More

My wife and I stayed here after looking on Tripadvisor. We stayed 9-14 thru 9-18. We stayed in a room in the main building with Gulf front view. The check in was quick and courteous. This place is an older traditional hotel set up that lacks the appearance of a more modern and updated chain hotel. Don´t let this dissuade... More
