Located near US Highway 231 in Panama City, near shops and restaurants
Panama City is a good place to find a reasonably priced hotel that isn’t too far from neighboring Panama City Beach and its main attractions.
Miles and miles of beautiful white sand in Panama City Beach attract thousands of tourists each year, especially those from the southern United States. Along with a number of high-rise condos and hotels -- built up during a mid-2000s construction boom -- the city’s main strip offers many mini-golf businesses, arcades, seafood restaurants, and souvenir ships. Other area attractions include the scuba diving shop Diver’s Den, St. Andrews State Park, and the Museum of Man in the Sea.
The 119-room La Quinta Inn & Suites Panama City has offerings typical for a basic budget hotel: bed, TV, free breakfast, and free Wi-Fi. While this property is conveniently located near Panama City 's shops and restaurants, some aspects of the hotel are in need of an upgrade. Common complaints include paper-thin walls and elevators that are constantly out of service. Highlights include simple rooms stocked with mini-fridges and microwaves and a sunny outdoor pool with an area to sunbathe. The hotel has a pet-friendly attitude that appeals to some travelers and leaves others wishing for a quiet night's sleep.
