Stayed at park Place this Labor Day weekend when our normal places were sold out. We never stay on this end of town so it was adventure for us...sorry to say we will not be back to Park Place. The area is overcrowded, overrated, and under sanitary!
Pros: If you enjoy being in the heart of the most congested area of the boards - this is a charm. Arrived at 10am on Sat. room was available by 11am. Inside of the room was clean, and was cleaned timely and well daily. Heard compliants from others that the elevator was slow but we really didnt have that expereince. Front desk clerk that checked us in was very nice and professional. Bed was comfortable, pillows seemed new. Always had plenty of towells.
Cons: You're in the heart of the most congested area on the boards. Pool is located on 2nd floor and is filthy. Our room was on the 5th floor directly over it and i never saw a poolman actually clean the pool or ANY of the chairs or tables on the pool deck. (see pix) We spent time waiting there while our room was being prepared Sat and everything was dirty. Bartend on the 2nd floor is rude and there was an incident where the wait staff even told us that she was rude and that they had complained to the manager about her but nothing had been done. Apparently you cannt buy two drinks with one ID - if your black. Because our 'pool nieghbor', who was white, managed to do it just fine. She was more pissed than my husband which is a fete. Really not a problem crossing it off my list of places to eat considering the place was gross - chairs and tables look as if they've never seen a wet, soapy, cloth.
More cons: The balcony was dirty. Its never swept and the plastic chairs are never wiped down. No irons in the rooms. (?!?) Visited the front desk to ask where the iron may be hiding and the clerk told me she could have one 'delivered'. And she sd this straight faced like it was the most reasonable thing. NOT. Especially NOT at $220 a night. The housekeeping staff ride the same elevator as guest and dont feel obligated to speak. Good morning, good night, drop dead, "yea, i'm on here with a huge bin of towells and now as a paying you have to wait" - nothing. Not one housekeeping person spoke to us our entire stay.
A con that i dont think the hotel is solely responsible for - This area of beach in front of the hotel is trashy. I know this probably because its so congested and busy but, they may want to invest some energy in cleaning up the area of beach. Its gross.
Overall, we will not be staying here again. Even if it was the last place in town - which it was this time. Too bad, because i enjoyed the Dough Roller next to the hotel...
Stay some where else!
