Rooms are small but that's the beach. Ocean view fron 2nd floor. Baths are tight - shower is maybe 30"x30". Toilet paper is the thinest I have ever seen. Management is good. WiFi works fine. Only a hundred yards or so from Funtown Pier. The property is probably above average for the beach area, below average for most travelers. There... More

Located right across the street from the beach, the Desert Palm Inn was the hotel we stayed in after we bailed out of our previous hotel which we found bed bugs in. We made our reservation at around midnight, intending to come over in a few minutes, and the manager was very hospitable despite the late hour we came in.... More

Just got back from Seaside Park. Dessert Palm Inn has been our choice since it was recommended by my brother-in-law. It has a good location, steps away from the beach and boardwalk. The owner is very accommodating. If you're not looking for a fancy place to stay in, this is a an excellent place to be. You get what you... More

If you are trying to find the perfect family hotel/motel in the Seaside area, this is it, look no further. They have make your own waffles every morning along with pasteries, coffee, tea, on, and lemonade. The pool is very clean and large enough to have your own space. The room we stayed in was a little small, but it... More

I am writing this review in hopes to help someone like me who spent a long time reading reviews online trying to find the perfect place to stay. I was referred to the Desert Palm by a friend and decided to book my stay here for myself and seven of my girlfriends for my friend's bachelorette party weekend on 7/20/13.... More

Love this motel! We stayed here for two nights with our 8 month old baby in July 2013. The location is perfect...you park your car and never need it again! You are steps away from the boardwalk and directly across from the ocean. The room was great, and accommodated the pack n play for the baby....I thought it was kept... More

Please don't fret previous reviews; this place has been re-mananged and renovated and has a great location on the beach. King rooms with jacuzzis and flat screens by the tub are amazing. Highly recommended - clean, affordable and friendly helpful staff! You won't regret it!

I have stayed at each motel in Seaside Park and this past September my cousin booked the Dessert Palm. The "Tiki Bar" appealed to her. Well.... Upon entering the room and looking in the bathroom there was long hairs in the shower, sink and on the floor. I'm guessing this bathroom wasn't cleaned at all. This prompted me to shift... More

I stayed here for two nights in August and was very pleased. The motel was very clean and the owner very helpful. It is not easy to find a decent hotel on the Jersey Shore and the prices are very high. This motel was reasonable and right across from the beach......and at the end of the Seaside Heights boardwalk.
