Though a little away from the main tourist areas, this place was very enjoyable. The monkey was great! A short walk through the quiet neighborhood takes you to some views of the Panama Canal.

I guess you can tell from my title, I liked it a lot. Very friendly and accommodating staff. They helped me with tours, provided transportation when needed, and even allowed me to use some of their refrigerator space to store my diabetic meds. Rooms were simple and clean. Water was hot and plentiful. Breakfast provided a variety of foods and...

We stayed here for 1 night. The staff will do anything for you to make your stay enjoyable. Customer service is a 12! Clean, comfortable and close to the Albrook Airport and Panama Canal. Highly recommended! Not a Marriott, but we didn't want to spend Marriott prices!

I stumbled across the Canal Inn after exhausting all other possibilities one evening. The clerk at another hotel that was full mentioned it - I hadn't seen it advertised or listed anywhere else. What a find. It's a bed and breakfast and has a wonderful personal touch to it. The staff is nice and helpful, the building is charming, and...

This was a lovely find. While the rooms are simple, the warmth of the owner, the proximity to the panama canals and the excellent suggestions and help in getting to the Panama Discovery Center made my first day a spectacular one. What a great welcome to this country. Really appreciated being away from the hustle and bustle of the city....

Situated in a quiet green neighborhood. Canal Inn is a small and relatively new hotel so it's hard to find a taxi driver who knows it . Just say it is in front of the Florida State University. We only got there because La Estancia was full but the places are similar. La Estancia makes a better breakfast though and...

“We have always stayed in rooms at the back of the hotel. Apart from a bit of barking from the dogs next door, we have always found them very quiet.”
