No as appearing as pictures

Pros: Nothing. Small ..not clean. Old.
Cons: Everything..
Got to our hotel a few hours ahead of schedule. Asked for early check-in and was told that if we wanted early check in it was $20.00 fee. No beach access in close walking distance. Probably an older hotel from 1950.. Updated some .. Very narrow walkways when trying to use luggage cart.. Hotel towels were horrible !! Small and thin... Room was some what clean but not up to hotel standards! Housekeeping knocking on doors 2 hours before check out time!! Not acceptablel... I must stay my comments are a little hard. as I am a GM for a hotel in Daytona Florida.. As for the price I feel it on the high side... Pool was clean but small .. Family checking in with an children were very disappointed no beach access.

Great hotel and location

The beds were comfortable and room clean and updated. The kitchenette was a huge bonus,There are actually 4 separate buildings and they each have there own heated pools. It was chilly during our stay but we swam everyday it was so warm. From this hotel you can walk to water taxis, the beach many restaurants, bars, shops and there is a Winn Dixie right across the street. Ocean manor hotel has a very cool bamboo tiki bar and you can enjoy the beach there as well. We also rented bikes at Hugh Taylor state park- lots of fun!

The room was great for a last minute booking. Spacious room a balcony and ocean view. The restaurant looked like a 4 stars open until midnight but we ate before. This was a good price, would stay there again.

Location was good

Slow and hot elevator, hardly no channels on tv apparently due to the recent storm, pool was small, room was small and didn't quite look like the pictures. Rooms could use a slight make over. Didn't appreciate having to leave a $200 deposit when I had already paid for my room. That limited my spending money

Great overall & super convenient.

Amazing experience, close to beaches, convenient stores, shopping centers, & major attractions, non-drivers cab fares are very affordable. Hotel staff are very professional, helpful, courtious, and accommodating. The outside does not give it the inside justice, lobby is kinda sexy chic & rooms are large. Maria & Lene at the front desk are rock stars. Definitely returning to this hotel.

Amazing staff!!

Pros: Extremely helpful staff, convenient location to restaurants and shops
Cons: Pools could be cleaned more frequently, and the outside area by the pools could be cleaner as well. The lobby had a distinguished smell.
Location: Walking distance to grocery stores, great restaurants and Starbucks, and the walk to beach is around 5-10 minutes
We really enjoyed staying here! The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. From the front desk to the housekeeping staff, we were impressed with how efficient and accommodating everyone was. We loved our room and decorations. Our main complaint with our room was that there was a generous space between our door and the wall. There were times that the door was closed, but we thought we left the door open because of the space between the door and the wall. We also loved the four pools. The pools could be cleaner, but overall we were happy we stayed here.

Pros: Staff was nice.
Cons: Rate accurately with price matching.
Location: Long walk to beach. Convenient to drug store and grocery store.
2 queen beds false. It was 2 doubles. Pool bar with loud music and cigarette smoke was 6 feet from our balcony. Laundry was beneath our room and started noise early in the morning. Older tired hotel on a busy road. The type of Motel you stay at on a cross country road trip to get 8 hours of sleep and a shower. 3 1/2 stars not an accurate score. More like a 2.

Nice Hotel

Nice enough hotel in good shape overall, next to a major road so there's a bit of traffic noise. Attentive staff. Across the streety on the ocean side there's a row of high rise condos, each with a private entrance and not open to the public. There's about a 7 - 10 minute walk to public access on the beach.

Hello, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. You are correct about the beach distance. It is a short 7-10 min walk to the public beach access point. We also offer free beach towel rentals to all of our guests and sometimes we have beach chairs as well. Have a wonderful day.

Pleasantly Surprised

A friend and I stayed at Royal Beach Palace for 5 days on business. We were pleasantly surprised by the convenience, rooms, parking and location. Each room has a small kitchen. You have to walk about 10 minutes to get to the beach but the beach is lovely. They also provided us with, towels, chairs and an umbrella, at no charge. Pools were clean and refreshing. This is obviously a motel that has been here for many years but the remodel was lovely. Clean and convenient. Gabriella, at the Front Desk, was perfectly delightful.

Needs new AC

The hotel was in front if major construction which isn't their fault but the sliding glass door wouldn't move properly. The curtain wouldn't blackout the street lights, ans the AC never got the room cold. There was no fan in the bathroom so when you showeres it fogged up and the ac never cooled that part down. There was a huge gap at the door so we had to block it at night to keep in some air. There was inadequate parking and the doors at night were not lighted.
