Upon renting my room I was taken aback by the prospect of having to wait until 8pm for someone to rent me a room. After finally paying and being sent to my room the first thing that greeted me was the pungent aroma of mold and urine. Dirty sheets,roaches,and a fridge that did not work. they advertised free WiFi but... More

This place is absolutely horrid, roaches everywhere, rooms are filthy, doors do not shut and lock appropriately, they advertise in their ads that the rooms come with a refrigerator and microwave however upon arrival the fridge does not work and there is no microwave. I paid up for my stay just to return and be locked out of my room... More

This place is the worst. To begin with, nothing has changed from 20 years ago as far as the decor. All of the rooms have black mold under the carpet and behind the walls. Constant problems with bedbugs. Owners are cheap and don't want to spent the money to fix the place up right nor pay for a full staff.... More

The car has been broken ($ 250 stolen). The hotel owners (from Pakistan) have just $ 300 more charged to my credit card and only $ 50 back after complaint. He notified the bank as completed. The bank closed the complain and I could not get my money back.....CAUTION.....Pets allowed but also to swim in the pool!!

The rooms are small, but clean. Okay for a night or two. Very few amenities at this hotel. Strange mix of guests, we didn't want to hang at the pool for sure because of the crowd. So we went to Westgate Lakes Resort and used their facilities for the day-MUCH nicer! We were only at the "palace" for 2 nights... More

I stayed there for about a week in December 2008. The location was pretty conveint seeing as everything you would possibily need is a walk away. My first impression of the hotel is that the outside was welcoming so I could only assume the inside of the room was the same. The room I got was a bit moldy and... More

The room was very spacious with two queen-size beds, a nice bathroom, a sitting area, a desk, and a balcony. It was also quiet and I did not hear noise from other rooms or the hallway. The internet connection was too high. I recommend the place.

We stayed there for a night and the place was horrible. You can get a better deal anywhere else for the same (or lesser) price. It used to be Howard Johnson, but they have dropped this hotel from their list. Here's a list of things we found wrong * Room stinks * Dirty carpets * Mold in bathroom * Dirty... More
