2DayGetaway

The staff was friendly and room was what we expected for the price. However it was noisy at night, I would recommend ear plugs.

very good over night getaway

The hotel was nice and clean. IT was not old and need of renovation in the inside. We stay overnight and close to the boardwalk. So the location was very convent. Staff were nice and there was free breakfast. If we were to go again we would use this place because the rooms were clean and renovated. also they let you park there even after before and after check out.

Beware. You Get What You Pay For.

The bathroom had mold. Despite the fact that the motel is across the street from the beach (its sole benefit), the room floor was covered with sand and sand was on the bedspread. Parking is available, but tight. Very noisy. The free "breakfast" consisted of coffee, juice and cookies.

Great location

It was a really nice place to just sleep. If you plan at being at the beach or going places all day during the day then i highly recommend it. Its a smaller sized room but with the beach right across the street who needs to stay in the room or go in the pool that's there. The bathroom and the room itself were both really clean and well taken care of.

When i arrived there the guy told me i should've called them directly or went to their website because apparently its 40$ cheaper to go right through them to go through orbitz for what i wanted and what i got.

Don't Stay Here

the hotel was horrible it had a great location near the board walk and right next to the beach but the staff was not friendly the room was small, there were no outlits, the walls were not that sound proff and we heard people doing it in the next room it was horrible the room was a little clean but the maid service never came to clean up so we had to walk to the office to get our own towels the bathroom looked nice but was very small and there was no room to move at all in the shower i had the best time in seaside park but i had the worst time in the hotel. i suggest going to a differnt motel becuase the room was the size of a closet with a king bed in it and there are so many better places to stay dont waste your money

Desert Palm Inn Review

The location was great!The board walk and beach is right across the street! You could literally never move your car from the parking lot because everything is within walking distance. It is an older motel but it has recently undergone renovations. It was no 5 star motel but it had the basics. Large bed, flat screen tv. The rooms don't have phones but I didn't need one (This is the cell phone era you know). The owners were real nice! They even let me keep my car in the parking all afternoon on the day I checked out. I was only there over a weekend so I didn't get in the pool but it looked very clean and inviting. Bring your own hangers to hang your clothes!

Great location,nice place

This was our first time there, but would return. The office staff was helpful, and polite.We were allowed to leave our car in the lot after checking out, to go to the beach. The location to the beach and boardwalk was awesome!The free breakfast wasn't so great, but a nice place to meet the "neighbors".The pool area, as well as the room, was clean- if a little beaten up inside. It served our purpose, which was a place to change, and sleep. For us-it's all about the beach.

With a credit card, you put down a "deposit for beach tags(saved us $32.00 a day), and when you return the tags, they refund the money-making the tags"free"
