2/10 Poor

Not my type of hotel
I really did not like this hotel, when I go to the beach I want to see water out my window or balcony. Well we had and interior room, I thought it would at least have a balcony on window where you could see the water, not none of the above, you had a window looking into a hallway and you had to close it as soon as you entered the room.The hallway or breezeway was hot as hell, the elevator was slow as hell, ended up using the stairs. They had garbage bins sitting outside our door, the room was hot the breeze way was hot. I hated this place, now I’m having trouble getting my one night back from, very pissed

Great Hotel
We had a wonderful overnight stay at the Palms. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is located near a number of nice restaurants and shops. The breakfast was grab and go but adequate. The beach was easy to access and not very crowded. We would definitely return.

8/10 Very good

Partial Oceanview wasn't bad. We were right beside a restaurant that had some live music in the afternoon and we had balcony seats,lol! The room was pleasantly updated and clean and they do provide daily cleaning if you want them to. The bed wasn't really comfortable because I always woke up with soreness and it squeaked every time I turn. The parking under the hotel was really limited and tight. The offsite parking was a good option and was like just across the hotel. Since it was only 3 levels we didn't really mind using the stairs to go up and down. The easy access to the beach and restaurant options that were walking distance was the best part. I would come back to this hotel again.

Don’t bother booking this place
It’s really a motel not a hotel. The partial ocean view was a stretch. You could barely see the ocean. The entry door to the room are all exterior. It’s very run down and old feeling.
