Across the street from the beach.

Posted Jun 19, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Cleanliness...please. I was afraid to walk around without shoes
Location: THere is a wonderful boardwalk that was recently rebuilt because of hurricane Sandy. Plenty of things to do
The man who checked us in was very nice. However the room was really really gross. Mattress what like sleeping on a board. I cannot tell you the last time the bedspreads were washed. There was a filthy bathmat in the shower stall. Small shower stall at that. I don't think there was even a shower head. There was a strip of paper on the toilet that it was cleaned and sanitized. It was filthy. I washed it with lysol. The box springs still had the plastic on it and the plastic was disgusting. There was a soccer tournament going on at the beach. I was afraid we would have no where else to stay so we stayed. Left as soon as we woke up. Didnt even shower. Parking lot small. Pool looked nice. we didnt use as the kids wanted to go to the boardwalk. There was bread and jelly on the window. Hopefully they read this and change their room cleaning habits. Honestly I regret no requesting a refund.

Affordable, accommodating, convenient

Posted May 1, 2017
My friends and I decided to go on an impromptu beach/fishing trip this past weekend 4/29-4/30. We had a large truck and a boat so parking in the area was not so easy. Not all hotels have parking for this set up. At the end of fishing on day one I jumped on the Expedia app and looked for hotels close to us that were not too outrageously priced. We called Desert Palm Inn and they were more than happy to help us with parking our truck and boat while keeping them attached. The man at the front desk was polite and even upgraded us to an ocean front room. This hotel was right a 1 block walk to the boardwalk... just across the street from the beach so it was not too loud or crowded. The hotel was affordable... only $95 including all of the taxes/fees. It was nothing overly fancy. The beds were clean and comfortable, the AC worked great keeping the room nice and cool... it was everything we needed to just rest our heads and walk to the attractions/necessities we needed so as to avoid taking our truck and trailer anywhere once parked.

Bathroom was tiny I could barely take a shower (5'8"@170lb) there was alot of humidity in the room and bathroom and the a/c / heater was not working . If you looking just for a night stay this is it. Over priced

Small, rundown hotel. It should be demolished and replaced. Only good thing was it was about 100 yards from the beach.

Bare bones not very nice but a place to sleep for a last minute stay. Needs upgrading desperately.

Not Paradise

Posted Aug 16, 2016 on Hotels
Great location to beach, but horribly under kept room. Tons of flies, beds were ancient, and bathroom was not clean. Door had clearly been kicked in before. Would not come here again or recommend to anyone else.
