I made it clear at the time of booking I was bringing a cat, then when I get there a different person at the check-in desk says "dogs only" They almost turned me away but I told them nowhere in the website or any signs in the hotel says "dogs only" and I told them when I first booked that... More

My wife and I worked with management at the Palace Hotel and blocked all of the rooms last October with the exception of 2 or 3. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our guests, who traveled a long way. The parking area is a little small underneath the hotel, but I've never had a problem with the free... More

There are only about 7 parking spaces for guests in this hotel. The clerks say that there is free parking on the street, but that is almost impossible to find. My boyfriend and I pretty much had to pay for parking on our entire trip. In addition, it is probably the second or third most unattractive ocean-front hotel. Lastly, the... More

I took my mother on a quick overnight stay in Cape May, NJ to start the Mother's Day weekend celebrations. The hotel is comfortable. The room was clean and had a small balcony from which you could see the ocean. The hotel is set across Beach Avenue from the sand and sea...who could ask for anything more. And, it is... More

Stayed here for the Ocean Drive Marathon in an Ocean Front Suite, room was spacious enough for 6 people. Included a small kitchen area, two bathrooms, two beds and a pull out couch. Nice breakfast included with the stay and the staff was very accommodating. It was not a five star hotel. Basic and clean. Will definitely stay here again... More

This hotel was gracious enough to allow us a 1 night rental on a holiday weekend during the off season. We stayed in the efficiency suite with 2 double beds and a double pull out sofa. There were 2 full baths with showers. A broad range of complimentary toiletries were provided. Kitchen stocked with glasses. Walk-out oceanfront balcony. Breakfast was... More

We booked the Palace hotel for Columbus Day weekend. After a 5.5 hour drive from North Jersey (it should have taken 2.5-3.0 hours, but there was a lot of rain and construction), we arrived at the Palace Hotel. It is on Beach Avenue, which is aptly named since it runs along the beach. My first impression was correct - it... More

This is all you need for an ocean view hotel without all of the frills. The room was clean and had everything we needed. I think every room has a side view of the ocean from the little balcony. The price was fair considering you are right on the beach. I didn't care for the free continental breakfast but it's... More

This place definitely has not been updated (not even a bedspread or a coat of paint) since it was built. They actually still use the original metal keys on the doors. Our room flooded from the balcony because it was raining (not even all that hard). Same for the room next door. Toilet seat and tub were both dirty upon... More

Stayed at the Palace this past weekend to attend a wedding. The bride's parents booked a block of rooms for out of town guests. Room was on the small side. The balcony was big enough to accommodate two chairs. The room did have a two burner stove, sink and mini refrigerator. Free continental breakfast is served every morning (waffles, French... More
