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 The decor was extremely outdated, the room was small, and the bathroom was dingy and dirty including mold on the shower curtain.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I stood at the Place hotel for a night the hotel is outdated but the staff made up for that.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.

We stayed at Palace Hotel for the Labor Day weekend. First off, the rates are pretty good compared to other hotels. The downside of that is you get what you pay for. It's not a 5 or 4 star hotel but it's a bit outdated (they still use actual keys for rooms). Second, the check-in was a breeze. Third, the... More

This is a great place in location. Just across from the beach. Close to Convention Hall and downtown. Close to a variety of restaurants. It is pet friendly and has parking on site. The rates are reasonable here. Breakfast is fantastic. Great staff. Thanks Nikki !

We booked a room at the Palace the day we wanted to stay there. As a last-minute, dog-friendly hotel on the beach, we figured it would be fine. And it was. From the reviews on here we thought it might be awful so if you prepare yourself for that it's not that bad. It is old, dated, and reminds me... More
