Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Rooms have cheerful decor in shades of green and blue
  • Microwaves, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers in all rooms
  • Flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi
  • Outdoor pool with a Jacuzzi
  • Free breakfast and free parking
  • Fitness center
  • 24-hour business center
  • Convenience store and laundry facilities
  • Pets allowed

Cons

  • Not on the beach
  • Fitness center is small, with only three cardio machines and free weights
  • Pool looks out at the parking lot
  • No full restaurant

Bottom Line

The 90-room Quinta Inn is a great value hotel in Panama City Beach -- for visitors who don't mind the 10-minute walk to the sand (which involved crossing a busy street). Room decor is basic but cheery with baby blue accent walls, colorful, patterned curtains, and modern tech features such as flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. All rooms also have work desks, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers (which are oddly placed in the bathrooms). And the freebies at this hotel are extensive, including free breakfast, free parking, and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. In addition, pets are allowed, and there's a nearby dog park. Also on offer: laundry facilities, a convenience store, a fitness center, a business center, and an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi. All are adequate but unexceptional; the fitness center is cramped, with only three cardio machines, and the pool, though well-kept, looks out over the parking lot. Nonetheless, this hotel is a solid budget-friendly option.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Within walking distance of the beach, but guests must first cross a busy street

La Quinta Inn is not directly on the beach, but rather a block and a busy road away from it. Rates are very affordable, but guests will want a car.

Miles and miles of beautiful, white sand attract thousands of tourists each year to Panama City Beach. It's an especially popular destination during spring break, drawing over 100,000 high school and college students. Along with a number of high-rise condos and hotels -- built up during a mid-2000s construction boom -- the city's main strip is lined with a variety of mini-golf businesses, arcades, souvenir shops, and seafood restaurants. Other nearby attractions include the scuba diving shop Diver's Den, Pier Park, St. Andrews State Park, and the Museum of Man in the Sea.

  • 21-minute drive to Panama City-Bay County International Airport
  • 3-minute drive to the beach or a 13-minute walk (but be careful crossing the busy street!)
  • 3-minute drive to Museum of Man in the Sea, or a 14-minute walk
  • 5-minute drive to Pier Park
  • 15-minute drive to Signal Hill Golf Course
  • 19-minute drive to Florida State University - Panama City
  • 21-minute drive to Diver's Den
  • 23-minute drive to Aquatic Adventures
  • 23-minute drive to St. Andrews State Park
  • 46-minute drive to Tyndall Air Force Base
