Very clean property but off the "beaten path" to the strip. Not a good place if you don't have transportation. A little hike to a public beach. No ice machine so you have to get ice when the bar is open (from the bartender). The luggage carts don't wheel well so be prepared to carry your luggage to the room. Parking is terrible.

Room Tip: Says partial ocean view and it's "partial" alright! We stayed on the 4th floor but the...

I booked this hotel last minute not knowing what to expect. I was spending the day in ft lauderdale beach and I wanted something relatively closed and this ended up being in a perfect location. A $10 taxi ride will take you to the strip if you don't want to drive. One great feature this hotel has is free parking and they don't charge a daily resort fee like most Miami hotels. When we got the room we where pleasantly surprised, the rooms are renovated and extremely clean. The front desk staff was friendly and I have nothing to complain about besides the rude bartender downstairs. One thing that is deceiving is that the hotel isn't close to the beach at all. Across the street is what seems like private condominiums with private beach access only. Overall it was a nice 1 night stay at the Royal Beach Palace.

This is a review coming from a Married couple who lives in Fort Lauderdale and have STAYCATIONED at just about every hotel/motel in the area. This is by far one of the best hotels in the area on the beach. If you are looking for a VERY CLEAN, relaxing, family friendly stay close to everything (Beach/nightlife) but not in the middle of it, this is the place for you.

Contrary to what a few others have said on this review site, this hotel is very clean, the service is great, the rooms are beautiful and we had a great stay. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spotless, no wait for towels, just nothing to complain about.

Parking is a little lacking but we were given a spot in a neighboring hotel for free. If this is a problem, try staying in south beach for a weekend. You'll pay more to park than for a room.

All in all, we loved this place and are going back this coming weekend.

Stayed here for 2 nights in April 2014. Price was reasonable - room was modern, large and immaculate and it had a balcony. Just a few block from the beach. Had a nice breakfast in the restaurant which was lovely. Had cocktails with friends at the pool bar. Staff was friendly and helpful. Big plus - free parking in the rear of the hotel. We had a rented car. This hotel is on a main street so it can be a little noisy. However it did not bother us in the least.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here next time we cruise.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies that face the main road. We had no issues with noise from the street.

We stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise. Good value, clean rooms! But not within walking distance of the beach front strip. Great bar with friendly staff, but right on the road so a little noisy but it didn't bother us too much!! Would use it again.

My Friend and I booked this hotel because of the price and reviews.... and also the advertising that said it was across the street from the beach" THERE IS NO BEACH ACCESS across the street. Have to drive 1.25 miles down the road. Also the staff was nice unless they didn't know you were listening and they complained a lot and swore constantly...I also think some low people are living there. we saw 3 women flagging men down and bring them into the hotel...

Room Tip: Make sure you can walk to the beach. Had to stand on tip toes to see the Beach View.

Dear erclerk

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am not aware of any sanctioned advertising that states that the hotel is across the street from the beach. Furthermore there are many reviews on this website that state otherwise as well. Nonetheless I apologize for any misinformation you may have received. The nearest beach access is 0.6 miles from the hotel, which translates into an approximate six minute walk or a one minute drive. I will certainly speak to my staff regarding your comments about their lack of professionalism but I can assure you the overwhelming sentiment has been otherwise. We do not have any residents at our property. I spend 12 hours a day six days a week at our hotel and during that time I can assure you I have never sees women "flag" men down to bring them into the hotel. We appreciate your feedback as we endeavor to improve the product and service we provide for our guests.
