Beautiful location, old buildingPosted Dec 2, 2013
Pros: Beach front
Toilet was rocking, fixtures very old and no rugs on floors for comfort or to wipe your feet before getting into bed. Pool was out of service for repairs and smell of mold throughout hotel.

Beautiful view of the Gulf.Posted Nov 11, 2013
Pros: The view and closeness to the water. Two pools. One heated.
Yet were doing construction and updating. It was in need of it. Will be nice when finished.

You get so much more than you pay forPosted Nov 10, 2013
Pros: Location location location. You get so much bang for your buck. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. It was clean and semi-updated.
Cons: Our shower kept getting super hot on its own. The mini-fridge didn't seem to work too well.
Location: Right on the beach, I'd imagine most rooms look out onto the ocean. Very close to Pier Park. Within walking distance to many stores and restaurants.
I believe that the low price was mostly due to the fact that we were staying in November, but we had a fabulous experience. It was 75 degrees the entire time without a cloud in sight (remind me why theres such a thing as an "off season" in such a beautiful place?). Our room was on the first floor and there was a back door in our room that literally led straight on to the beach. There was a heated pool on the beach that was very clean and about 20 feet from our back door. There was also a nice hot tub that you could sit in and stare at the ocean. The breakfast was very good as well, and the room breakfast is situated in is lined with big windows that again look out on to that gorgeous beach.

Location was the primary attraction.Posted Nov 6, 2013
The ocean view was awesome and Pier Park was about 3 miles up the beach.

GREAT! ABLE TO CHECK IN EARLY. ROOM CLEANPosted Nov 4, 2013
We arrived early & we checked in 2 hrs ahead of time...The room was clean nicely decorated very pleased with especially the view & beach access. The PP(PARADISE PALMS) has a heated pool as well as a pool with a beautiful waterfall. The hot tub is right near waterfall pool!

BUDGET hotel with an exceptional locationPosted Oct 29, 2013
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: Better quality of sheets and towels, lots of work needs to be done on the facilities (leaky roof, missing tiles, etc.)
This hotel provides a bare bones room that happens to be in a great location. The beds were OK, the TV was ancient, the bath towels were so thin you needed several just to dry off even a small amount of moisture, I'm not entirely sure the room was all that clean either (no roaches though!!!), BUT one of the most beautiful beaches is literally right outside your door. We were on the first floor with patio access and a couple of chairs just outside the door. The view was spectacular and we hardly spent any time in the room anyway. The kids *loved* the pools - especially the big one with the waterfall - and I really liked the hot tub. I also really liked the staff. We ended up arriving several hours earlier than we had anticipated and I was given access to the room early with no additional charges added on. That is not something I've ever had a large hotel chain be willing to do (at least not for free). The desk clerk seemed genuinely happy to be able to accommodate us. The "breakfast snacks" were great for the kids, but not healthy choices by any stretch. There was nothing fresh offered (fruit, yogurt, etc.), but there were several breakfast breads and cereals available. Not a great breakfast but the fact that anything was offered given how inexpensive the room was surprised me. All in all, I would definitely stay there again. The location can't be beat for such a budget hotel.

Great HotelPosted Oct 25, 2013
Pros: The view.
Cons: A little updating. They are working on that now. Can't wait to see the changes.
Location: Right in the middle of shopping and places to eat. Better to rent a car or golf cart to get around. Shopping to the west the marina to the east.
Great place. Nice, clean and the staff was great. Great location as well

You get what you pay for.Posted Oct 23, 2013
I would give the overall rating as a 2 and a half. Basically a cheap hotel on the beach. The beach was nice. The pool was ok. The staff was nice. The room was a bit run down. I wasn't thrilled that the whole room was tiled.
