If you like to find hairs in your bath tub and floor, this is the place for you. If you also like to be treated with indifference bordering insult by the reception staff, then you will feel at home. This hotel is a disaster.

DO NOT STAY HERE!! my sister & I booked through Travelocity (who is also trash! They never helped get our refund and lied about booking another room and still 2 months later I'm arguing with this hotel & Travelocity) BedBugs!! We had 2 rooms checked in around the same time. Disgusting common area I was afraid to touch the counter at check In it was so disgusting. It smells gross! Got into the room and first thing I did was pull the sheets back and found bugs! Dirty nut stains! & yell spot/stains. The shower was black lining in the tub like dirt and the room stunk like old dusk and musty ass! Everything about this place was trash! We were told no other rooms because each unit is private owners. They tried to come and change the sheets but I told them the bugs are all over how is a sheet change supposed to help?!?! Service was trash! No one refund us or helped & I had to go pay for any hotel!! Never ever stay here! I’m going to every website to share how gross this place is! I have video on yelp!

This was the 4th time back to this hotel.... first in over 3 years; however, I know this will be my last time. The hotel has really gone down hill. We checked in on Thursday, 12/12/19 and they gave us one room. The room we got was nothing like we were suppose to get. Within being in the room, the lights blew and the bathroom vent was extremely loud and smelled a little like smoke. They finally moved us to another room. When we got in this room, we had no shower curtain and had to call. I tried to use the Wifi; however, there was none and we were told they were working on it. Needless to say, the wifi never worked the entire time. The door separating the bathroom from the bedroom wouldn't shut properly, leaving a 3 inch gap, the 'coffee table' and the 'table and chairs' were ready to break with the slightest movement. We were there for a total of 5 days and never once had someone clean our room. We had to ask for extra towels, which we finally got 2. Also, the shower water continuously went from scolding hot to freezing cold. Lastly, one of the days, a random man just used a key and entered our room without knocking and was shocked that someone was in the room. It is sad that this is what this hotel has come to. Would NOT recommend it to anyone.

As we got out of the cab, the noise was pounding from the Palace where the bass made the ground shake and made it nearly impossible to talk. Maybe OK in the afternoon but it continued until 1:00 AM. The music, announcer, and audience made sleep impossible. We asked to move but they said only one room was available with the same noise problem. I am surprised that OSHA has not shut down the Palace for noise danger to the staff, it was just that loud. The "hotel" should have issued a warning notice as some do when under construction. Our room faced the beach, but the windows didn't look like they had been washed since 1935. The room was spartan. When the room wasn't cleaned the next day we were told that we didn't order cleaning and if we did there was a charge. The couch in the lobby was stained with god knows what substance. The staff was surly and made it a point to say they are a condo not a hotel as if this was their excuse for poor service and room condition. The bathroom had an oval tub with no safety handles. So you had to step up and into the tub to take a shower. The shower curtain did not fully enclose the tub, so water poured out the back onto the floor. The Toto toilet actually sounded like it was breathing heavily when you flushed and continued for about 5 minutes. The cockroach in the toilet at least was dead. Security was very weak. No in room safe despite advertisement. No key required to get into the building. You did need a key to use the elevator, but the stairway door would always remain open because it would only shut if you were to slam the door. So anyone could access all floors. The free arrival drink was not free. You only got a two for one coupon which means you had to buy an overly priced drink to get a free drink. On the positive side, the hotel was on Ocean Dr right across from the park and beach. I did like the performers at the Palace and can see a class action lawsuit in the future by the performers and staff for loss of hearing. I would avoid this property. at all cost.

Terrible! Noisy. Hear everything from the partying outside. Standard below zero. The shower is a joke in an high bathtub that is very slippery. Dangorous. Should have been paid to stay and take nights here.
