“A trip onto skid row”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2008

I was attracted to this hotel by the website and its proximity to CityPlace in downtown West Palm Beach. It looked like an interesting boutique hotel with retro decor. In actuality, the hotel turned out to be a far cry from that. Many of the rooms share a shower. The more expensive rooms, $80, have a private bath. The rooms are very shabby and small. The king sized beds (very low quality) take up practically the entire room. I had to step up into my shower.They also stick in a large refrigerator and a microwave. It's obvious that this hotel is for people who need a place to stay long term as I overheard the much cheaper rates they offer to those clients staying for a week ($200/week). As a result, this hotel doesn't have a "vacation" ambiance but rather a skid row feel. There's rarely anyone at the desk. There was a worker always lingering in the lobby in a tank top.

The carpet was dirty throughout the hotel. There are no phones in the room (not a big deal but another indication of the transient nature of the hotel.) Though they publicize their wireless access in the rooms, it didn't work in my room.

Contrast this with the B&B next door, the Hibiscus House, where the low season rates are only a bit more than Hotel Evernia. I could hear and see from my window residents who obviously were enjoying their stays. I saw staff at the Hibiscus working to make their stays comfortable, not hanging out watching TV burning the hours away until dawn brings a new day. What's worse is that I was given a room which allowed me to hear and see what I missing out on.

It's a shame. This hotel could be a very nice and convenient destination but this place is obviously a hold out from a time when down town WPB was home to transients. The owners should embrace a new day with CityPlace just around the corner and the Clematis district down the street. If they don't have the money, sell it to someone who does. The hotel has nice bones and a great location, it could be so much more.
