By The Sea Resorts acquires Palmetto Inn & Suites

PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL – Adding to its growing portfolio of beachfront hotels, By The Sea Resorts recently finalized an agreement to acquire Palmetto Inn & Suites, located at 17255

Front Beach Road in Panama City Beach, FL. The Hotel has been welcoming visitors to Panama City Beach since 1978 when the first portion of the property was opened and has since been a mainstay for more than 4 decades. By The Sea Resorts will manage all aspects of the business moving forward.

We are honored to welcome Palmetto Inn & Suites to the By The Sea Resorts family of Hotels.  I’d like to extend my gratitude to The Hughes Family for their lifelong dedication to this amazing property.

Generations of Panama City Beach visitors have made Palmetto Inn & Suites their home away from home, and we look forward to continuing the tradition.

–       Brad Busby, CEO, By The Sea Resorts
