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

This place was chosen for our gals' weekend primarily because of their ability to accommodate five of us in one suite and the price. Most places at the shore that could have accommodated us are much more expensive and, face it, we were there for a couple days of touring, shopping and dinning. The location is perfect with views of... More

This was our second stay at The Palace Hotel , our room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. We stayed on the 4th floor as we vacation with our dog. We will be going back in July 2014! To the people that had complaints about the rooms, did you contact management ? If you didn't shame on you,... More

Although a great location right across from the beach and only a few blocks from the board walk, the palace hotel was a big disappointment for our first year anniversary. The decor was extremely outdated, the room was small, and the bathroom was dingy and dirty including mold on the shower curtain. The hand soap was so old that it... More

I stood at the Place hotel for a night the hotel is outdated but the staff made up for that. Well manner helpful and check in was very easy. Nicole was very helpful and Pleasant. Even though there is no pool the beach is across the street. I will definitely stay there again.
