Did not expect it, but The Paradise Palms Inn was Fantastic! I too, read some not so great reviews, but decided to go ahead, since the bad reviews seemed to be "not so bad." I can't say enough how great the staff is there, friendly, helpful, and cheerful. Like most reviews have said it is a very basic place, but it has everything you need! It is steps from the beach, convenient by all accounts, and has more than one rinse off station for when you do come off the beach, your not waiting in line to rinse off. The first floor rooms were perfect for us, as we have a son in a wheel chair, and it made it so much more enjoyable and easy for us, since we could step out of the back door and go straight to the beach!! They also provided a beach wheelchair, for free!! So wonderful! As the other guests have stated, the beautiful waterfall pool was a bit chilly, but tolerable, and probably would be quite refreshing in the heat of the summer, the other pool was very nice, and neither of the pools were crazy crowded. The breakfast was pretty bare bones, but how can you complain, when your getting a free breakfast!! I didn't find any other places right on the beach for the same value, location, and quality as The Paradise Palms, that provided free breakfast, and give military, and returning customer discounts! Even with a Shriners event in town and lots of guests, they were able to accommodate, and we had no problems with noise. The room was big enough for a family of four and if you get two rooms that are adjoining, there is plenty of room, air conditioner was cold, a little noisy but nothing major. The view was gorgeous. Cheers and hats off to you Paradise Palms, we will be returning!
The view is probably better from the higher floors, but the convenience to the beach is awesome from...
