1. Location - Hotel is only 2 mins walk from the Beach. In terms of location, it is good.
2. Breakfast Inclusion - Its a rip off. All over India, you can book hotels at a price and there is an extra price that you pay for breakfast inclusive deal for the room. There is no point paying extra price for breakfast inclusive deal as what they offer as complimentary breakfast is extremely sub-standard and rip off. You are better off taking a without breakfast accommodation deal and rather have better quality paid breakfast.
3.Extremely Dirty and unusable swimming Pool: My primary intention to go for this property was that it was close to the beach and it had a pool where I can take a dip in the evening once I am back from the beach. If you are actually paying the price for facilities like pool, you better think twice. You are better off going for a beach side cottage than considering this property.
4. Staff was extremely courteous and always there to help and guide.
5. Dodgy Management and extremely rude manager by the name of Mr Vinod - They do carry some shady practices down there to save paying commission to their OTA partners who get them those bookings. You can't be unfair to partners who bring in revenue for you. Hence you can't expect much from people who are principally dishonest. Also the AC of our room was not working and our family had to spend a night with out AC. Though the staff tried to make it work during the night but was unsuccessful. No alternative was offered despite having available rooms. When we complained to the manager next morning, he was extremely rude and arrogant just told us " No problem". If I have paid for a service which is not given to me, at least a good manager could have apologised for inconvenience and shown sympathy. After all technology or electricals can go wrong and we understand that. But the service level was really pathetic. I would strongly recommend avoiding stay at this property as they are dodgy in terms of principle and in terms of services on offer.

Room tip: Don't go for this hotel. Beach side cottages are a better option. You will get much better quality and value at the same price.

Palolem Inn is found at the southern end of the beach, so it's a bit more relaxed than the more central places. It has a pool and the rooms on the second floor have balconies (recommended!). From there we watched busy little palm squirrels in the neighbouring garden.
The staff is quite young and helpful but they seem a bit inexperienced. For instance they didn't know anything about the Tanshikar Spice Farm, which isn't very far away, and definitely worth a visit.
The rooms are reasonably spacey and clean, although we did find a gigantic cockroach one day. The bathroom ok, but the shower has very low water pressure and hot water sometimes take a long time to get.
The absolute worst part of our stay here had to do with some other guests, a very noisy gang from England that seemed to spend all days drinking and by the end of the day were screaming and shouting extremely agressively and banging doors in the middle of the night. We asked the guy in the reception to tell them to be quiet, but the poor fellow admitted that he didn't dare, because he was afraid of them...
Obviously this gang is well known in Palolem, and the hotel managers should have a better strategy to deal with them.

We are currently staying here, I've been to India many times and I can assure you this is a good clean friendly hotel. We rang the hotel before we left the UK and they were very easy to talk to. We arrived 2:30am in the morning and was happy to be greeted by the front reception. We was promptly shown our rooms and given the choice to book in once we had woke up the following morning. My wife was not fond of the beach huts, as she is scared of India's wildlife. She was happy to see the rooms are secure and the two weeks we have been here we haven't seen any animals of any kind in the hotel. Beds are massive, rooms have a/c and fan. Good telly channels i recommend 405 for latest films. the hotel is a three minute walk passed some good shops, money exchange and bike rental. The village as a whole is very welcoming and friendly. We are looking to rebook south goa next year and we will definitely being staying back with Palolem Inn.

We moved to this hotel after one night in the beach huts at Patnem. They gave us an excellent rate and made us very welcome. The rooms were ideal for our needs. Very clean and well equipped with free WIFI. The hotel was kept very clean and the breakfast was excellent. (We did not eat at the hotel at any other time). The pool and pool area seems to have fallen into disrepair. Looking at the photos on here it was very nice. The water was murky and the loungers need a good clean. Not sure why this had been allowed to happen when the rest of the hotel is so well kept. The staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel a few minutes walk from the beach. I would stay here again.

Room tip: Don't pay extra for a view. The hotel is surrounded by buildings.
