I great deal for a post-college spring break! Definitely not a luxury place, but it was a blessing for us. Location was wonderful: right on the beach, with a donut shop across the street, a starbucks nearby, and a beachside restaurant that gave us to-go drinks. The water was beautiful.

Convenient to the beach & fun places, pool was nice & clean. Nice washers & dryers. Pool furniture needs replacing & curtains in the room do too. Room was clean & comfortable although run down a bit, staff pleasant. No wi-fi at all. No staff on site. Sign on door gave a # to call. We had to turn left onto a busy road & go down a ways to another hotel to check in. If we wanted coffee or something in A.M. we could have gone down to that hotel again but it was not within walking distance at all. Very strange. I would recommend to some friends who are not picky about accommodations.

No tv. Carpet was filthy smelled. Very dated. Broken tiles. Moldy curtains. Just all around dirty.

There was nothing good about this property, checked out after only 2 days of the 25 days.This

This was the worst place ever, it had mold and the walls and mildew small, missing curtains.

Front desk seemed lost and pent was ok but no one cleaned the pet poop. My husband cleaned, house keeping was good service. Didn't enjoy our rest the people from the building next door was v vandalism on the pent house roof with peanut butter and frozen drinks. Hitting my family, called the police and made a report. Roof leaked also. It was fair.

The place is literally falling apart!!! It's like they don't even try to make it look better. We had dirty sheets on our beds and the curtains were so stained it look like a crime scene. The bathroom had a huge hole in the wall and tiles were falling out. The walls were dirty, and ceiling looked like it was about to fall through. The outside smelled like raw sewage and continued in the room through the air conditioning. The sliding glass door was beat up and had a hard time closing without the frame pulling away. The only positive to this place is that it sits right on the beach. If you walk a few feet away past the parking lot it's a beautiful view! It was cheap rates, but I feel like they should have paid me to stay in it because it was awful!

Sofa bed broken and very uncomfortable. No railings on the top bunks my kids could of easy fallen off. Check in and out not at the same hotel no staff around.

I’m really upset with orbitz and I will not use orbitz service ever again!!! The hotel I can deal with. But what Makes me mad is I payed orbitz like $334 or whatever and I get to the hotel and they give me a receipt for $266 for my stay. That means orbitz ripped me off!!!! So orbitz just lost a valued customer. But palm grove is a decent place if your on a budget and want something cheap! It was just a last minute option for me

Location is amazing, friendly staff and the rooms were clean, the rest was bad beds very uncomfortable and super old furniture forget about the fridge, working but bad condition, for the price at least was clean that matter a lot for me was good vacations because Is beach front and that you can’t beat in other cheap place.

Good price. Pictures I saw must have been many years ago. Appliances old. There was no heat in room with the temperature outside in the 50's. The TV would not turn on. No one at the office after 5 PM.

I've stayed there before and had service the first night was alright the next night the people on top of us left the water on in they room and the water went to coming in my room and wet all of our belongings i call the maintance it took them forever to come so we knocked on the guess door to cut the water off they went to acting all crazy and im wondering why hell it was all my stuff messed up down stairs in my room. Then maintance finally gets there walk in the room do nothing we tell them were we thought the water was coming from and maintance gobtobthe room talk to the people come back and tell us not to knock on a residents door call maintance first but i did it took them to long then when i told them about our stuff being wet and we didnt have a place to dry our clothes they told us it was a dryer on site and we would have to pay for it ourself like it was my fault and they up stairs residents the reason our clothes was mess up. It been since friday 3/31/17 today is 4/5/17 nobody has called to say anything not happy at all with them

Good location....to travel...the pool ....beach.. and more.........xxxxxxxxxx

I will never stay at palm grove again.. I suggest u guys do the same.. it was so dirty and disgusting.. house keeping sucked .. that is if they have house keeping .. they told me that I had to bring my dirty towels to the front desk if I wanted clean ones.. and they acted like that was normal at hotels.. trash cans running over outside the rooms .. trash cans tipped over and trash on the ground.. . i figured it was gonna b a horrible place to stay when I went to check in.. cuz the person in front of me was complaining about a water leak so bad in her room that water was standing on the floor and they just tried blowing her off and said they will get it fixed .. I suggest u get new management to run the place or burn the place down.. cuz palm grove has absolutely nothing going for them at all.. !!

Sand all in the floor of the "kitchen" the shower wouldn't fully come on and the room felt like the floors we're going to collapse not to mention our neighbors above us were unbearably loud the entire stay. Ghetto as it could get on front beach rd. Defiantly doesn't look right next to the other hotels neighboring it. The price was decent though

The hotel has no outside lighting and room numbers are not posted on more than half of the rooms! I was awakened between 4:30 and5:30 am every morning by the garbage truck slamming the dumpster over and over again right below my window!! The foot of the bed was 6 inches higher than the head!! The smell of carpet fresh and mold was sickening!!!!!

It was nothing like the pictures. I was very disappointed when we got there. Will never stay there again. Best thing about it was the location.

Had a great time.It was a good location and cheap price.Staff was very nice and always helpful.

Dear Guest, We are doing some renovations to keep it up to date as much as possible due to it being the oldest property that we manage. However I will make sure your review is taken up to management over housekeeping and maintenance about the overall conditions of your unit.
