    Our Home Away From Home


    We have stayed at The Palmetto the first week of May since '94 and this is the first spring we will have missed due soley to the motel renovation and extensive construction in the area. We drive 12 hours straight through to get there from our home in Brown County, Ohio roughly 50 miles east of Cincinnati. We were saddened to learn that our little motel would be undergoing renovation, as we loved its' personality and charm so much but recognize the necessity for change. It provides everything we need for a relaxing, stress-free vacation and the pool, landscaping and other amenities are superior to those found at more trendy, high-priced hotels. There simply is no comparison and our friends and family think we spend a fortune on our vacation judging by our photos.

    We have made so many friends at The Palmetto, some of whom we correspond with throughout the year, and consider it our home away from home. We feel such a loyalty to Rick & Patti and their staff that we would not consider staying anywhere else during the renovation and are looking forward to staying in the new Palmetto in '06 and many years thereafter.

    Take My Advise


    My Family and I have stayed at the Palmetto for 18 years straight, ever since I was born, and My mom has never missed a summer at the Pametto in almost 30 years. The Best Place in PC!

    Ripped off for $88.00 from this hotel


    This hotel charged me $88.00 for a room when I had cancelled it. I sent letters to dispute the charges with employees names and the owners apparently didn't care as they took the money anyway. Go somewhere else... Will recommend to all other government employees too !!! Already listed with my agency to "stay away".

    Too bad its closing


    I've stayed at the Palmetto for the past three years between Christmas and New Years. The staff/owners are very special and make you feel at home. While the rooms are nothing special, the poolside area and ocean view more than make up for it. Since they're closing down this fall to build a new high-rise complex, I've had to make other arrangements for this year's trip. I'll miss it!!!!! :-(



    My husband and I were passing through Panama Beach and wanted to stay a couple of days, we decided to check this place out, the desk clerk offered to show us the room (we were across the street from the main hotel which is on the beach)before we payed, but told her we would check out with a full refund if we didn't like what we saw, the room was clean and smelled clean, we walked to the indoor pool area and found it to be very nice. We were very happy and stayed. Only wished that we had stayed there the first time passing through, instead of the Sandpiper-Beacon, which was a total nasty stink hole! When we go back we will only stay at the Palmetto for sure!

    Best Motel on the Beach


    The Palmetto has been my family's vacation spot of choice for about the past 13 years. Every year when I was a teenager we went here with my family, and now I go myself. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly, and the location is excellent. The hotel is away from the noise and congestion of "the strip", but it's just a few minutes up the road if you want to shop or eat out. The pool areas are clean and beautifully landscaped, and the beach is beautiful. There isn't a better spot on the coast!



    Just returned from PCB and enjoyed my stay at the Palmetto. It is located on the west end of PCB away from most of the new construction and high rise condos. Is great for families. There is a Winn Dixie grocery store located within 200 yards and there are refrigerators in the rooms. There are also gas grills located on the property if you want to grill out. If you like to hang with the locals there is a great littlr bar within walking distance called the Y Not. They had live music and great prices compared to some bars located in the middle of the beach. If you are looking for a clean basic room with Cable this is it. If your flying into town once at the Palmetto most things are within walking distance-beer,food,liquor,drug store,scooter rentals,and the best beach in florida.

    Wished we could have found it sooner


    My family has been going to Panama City for years as a spring break vacation and always stayed at Gulf Crest ,then when they closed we were desperate to find another hotel with the family atmosphere and not springbreakers. The first 2 years after they closed we stayed at Sunset Inn, which is also a great place, but we wanted to find an oceanfront pool so the older kids could play on the beach and we could watch both ,so last year we stayed at palmetto and knew this was what we had been looking for. Since spring break last year we have been back again in September and have not regretted it at all.

    Nice, Nice View


    My husband and I stayed at the Palmetto and the view was that of a postcard. The rooms were unattractive, but the view and the vision made up for it. I recommend it for people wanting easy access to a beactiful pool that overlooks the Gulf.

    Enjoyed ourselves


    My children and I just got back from a trip to Panama City, Florida. We stayed a week in our Motel. It was clean when we got there, we were able to get a baby crib, high chair (at no extra cost) extra towels if needed. The staff was really nice and helpful in any way. We were on the side away from the beach, but could just walk across the street and use any of the facilities on the beachside. I would like to thank the staff at Palmetto for making our stay enjoyable.

    Today we drove to Panama City Beach. Nothing exciting happens during the day. Upon arriving at Panama City Beach we were let into our rooms and oh my godddd - the view from our rooms were just so, so incredible. I was in love as soon as I walked in. Florida feels like home. It's exactly as I remember it - sunny, green, beautiful beaches, laid back vibe. We all got straight into ...

    ... Andrews State Park, which was voted as the number one beach in the world according to a US report. To be fair to other world beaches, the US World Beach list, only had US beaches, and including those in Hawaii, but it really is a beautiful beach.

    We tend to use Trip Advisor quite a bit for places we don't know. Panama City had swimming with Dolphins quite high on the list. While driving into town, we made a telephone booking with ...

Had my first canteen looking lunch at a food court, massive slice of pizza and a large diet pepsi! Hour and a half later we were in Florida!! Panama City beach in beautiful. Described as the ...

    ... and traditional than Seaside. The Red Bar is busy, noisy, and looks a bit of a dive, but the queue outside despite a 90minute wait to be seated hinted at the quality inside. We were not to be disappointed. My dish of blackened grouper fish (chunky fillet grilled with Cajun spices) was by far the best seafood dish I've ever eaten, and up there with some of the best food I've eaten, period. If you ever find yourself in that neck of the woods, ...
