Beautiful pool and landscape. Short walk to the ocean. Can't say enough about how clean it is kept. Great for families. We have stayed every summer for years. We are never disappointed. The grounds and pool area are kept spotless.

My husband, daughter, and I stayed here for 3 nights/4 days on the North side. The hotel was clean and well maintained on the outside. The room was very small, especially the bathroom. There was no plastic on the beds, but they were small. The outdoor pool was pretty, but would fill up with unsupervised teenagers in the evenings, so... More

Just the oceanview from private balcony is well worth the money I paid. Let alone the well kept swimming pool and fully stock kitchen. The hotel is beach front and very well maintained. The staff are great and helpful. I enjoy every minitue there and will go back in a heartbeat.

This is the place to go if you want a marvelous, family oriented, relaxing place for your vacation. This was our second visit, and it won't be the last. The staff was super friendly and helpful, the room and the grounds were immaculate.

The Palmetto is comprised of two different buildings - the one on the beach and the one across the street, called the northside. They clearly state this on their website. We wanted to stay beachside, but it was completely booked, so we took the chance and stayed across the street. There are so many good points that it's a shame... More

This was exactly what we were looking for, a smaller motel, right on the beach. Everyone on the staff was friendly and professional. I do wish there had been more parking on the beach side of the road. About half the time we had to park across the street. The pool was a nice size. There was plenty of seating... More

We had an absolutely wonderful stay! We stayed 6 nights with our 2 year old son and we all had a blast. It's a very nice hotel, that is the perfect size and is very well kept and has amazing views. Only negative for me is that the bed could have been a little more comfortable but that's just personal... More
