Reviewed 2 January 2017

Yes, this is an older property, but older and smaller can be fabulous. We stayed one night in the beachfront part of property. I booked a month in advance, which was smart because I noted that some latecomers were housed across the street in crummy motel-ish non-beachfront units. We were on the third floor in the beachfront building which afforded...

Dear Javarider, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Our Northside location is a shared property but it is booked separately. While the building itself is an older building, the rooms have been renovated to match those in our main building. It's an option we offer guests who want accommodations at a lower rate while...

The staff was polite, the rooms were clean (I'm a germaphobe) and the rates were reasonable. The pool area was nice and maintained. Our neighbors were slightly rowdy, but I attribute that to the holiday. I would certainly stay at Palmetto Inn and Suites again.

My family held a reunion at Palmetto Inn and Suites Thanksgiving week of 2016. I spent a week in Panama City Beach earlier in the year choosing the right location for this event. One ADA room was required. It was shocking how many properties advertise having an ADA room, but in reality, the room would not work for a handicapped...

This is a review for across the street lodging. Not good. Tub that drained very slowly, bed as hard as a rock, lowered ceiling tiles that were warped, refigerator that was not cold, toilet that would not flush stools, I could go on. Beach is beautiful.

I would recommend this place to my family and friends. Nice , well kept warm swimming pool that we have enjoyed all day long . Private access to the white sandy beach. Our room has small kitchenette that was very useful to prepare quick breakfast , coffee or tea.

We checked this place out on TripAdvisor and watched the video on youtube. According to the video it is family owned and operated. So, we thought why not give it a try.
