“Always reliable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We've stayed here many times- most recently with another couple. Again, the rooms were clean, the beds slept comfortably, and the pool is always blue and beautiful. I did notice a little more wear and tear than usual though since our last visit. A few things could use a fresh coat of paint, there were burn marks in our blanket but everything appeared fresh and clean, just old.

Room Tip: Also we stayed in a deluxe room- if you can, pay the little extra for one of these! They're pool...

I wanted to stay in a really nice hotel and a friend told me that the Golden Palm Inn & Suites had Jacuzzi suites so I went down with my husband and asked to see a room. I was VERY impressed. The entire hotel is very nice(especially compared to the other hotels near by) I had a wonderful night needless to say and the staff was very helpful and accommodating. I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: the jacuzzi suites are beautiful, I'd assume the rest of the hotel is just as nice :-)

I travel with my two children quite frequently and we are always looking for safe hotels that have a pool. This hotel offers a great rate and a safe stay. It was quiet and the room was clean. Thank you Golden Palms staff for a pleasant stay!

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly for best rates.

This was just a place to lay your head. It was dirty the ac did not work all that good . I guess you get what u pay for. The carpet was coming up in the room . It sorrta had a smell to it. The tv sucked come on they could do better then this. The breakfest was a waste of time thats all I can say.

Room Tip: not here it was just bad

i've stayed here on several trips. I've never had a negitive experience. The rooms that i've had, have been what i have come to expect (CLEAN).The owners are very accommodating and the staff is very polite and eager to be of assistance I personally prefer the Presidential Suite. Not all rooms are the same.(FANTASTIC) You have choices, Two Room Suites, Jacuzzi Suites, etc. Who else has that??? At unbeatable prices?

Stayed here because there was NO vacancy know where else. The worse mistake of my life! Once you open the door to the room, it will fool you. Once you step in that trash can, you get sick. Bad odor! I had to literally sleep in my clothes, shoes ready to roll. I was on his computer that night and felt something starring at him it was the biggest roach he ever laid his eyes on. It crawled into the dinosaur television. My stepfather pulled the covers back the linen was nasty, the towers were yellow. And the water pressure was disguising felt like it was misty raining! Omg another roach in the bathroom and then comes the nasty continental breakfast. While writing this review it felt like something was crawling on me. Once I called to the front desk , the clerk tried to makeup some excuse that nothing had been reported to her. She tried to out talk me but I told her this place should be CONDEMNED today. if you read any GOOD reviews pertaining to this motel they are written from the EMPLOYEES! The name should be changed to Palms Inn and drop the GOLDEN AND SUITES. And then had the audacity to charge me $139.00 and know damn change back.THE END!

I started working here today and walked out on them without pay. The place is disgusting. My shoes literally peeled from the carpet in many of the rooms. There is no surplus of linen. There is covers missing from the outside of the a/c. Dust could not be controlled. One hour after dusting, all of the rooms cleaned had to be redusted. The rooms do not smell pleasant. The doors on many rooms are old and rusted. The tiki bar is used to store junk and there is old cabinets and all kinds of old junk stacked in hallways. My sense of value would not allow me to contribute to a place that is a dive as this one is.
