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.

Beach-Friendly Location/ 3 Guest Pools

The service was excellent which made my stay even more relaxing and uncomplicated. The only glitch was the rooms could not receive sound for NBC & ABC. About 2/3 through my trip, these channels were restored in time for the NBA PLAYOFFS. It's convenient to all major highways, store chains, restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend the Royal Palace Hotel & plan on returning. It's the most bang for your bucks!

Very nice updated Hotel

Pros: Ther tiki bar, cabanas, villas
Cons: the lobby should mirror the villas. It need some updating
Location: There are many restaurants, golfing and beach nearby
At first when I went to check in the lobby appeared to be in the 1970's with panel walls but when I went to my room , it was a villa. I am very picky and was quite satisfied. The villa was very clean and modern. Really enjoyed my stay with the cabanas and pool right outside of my room. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice clean freshly renovated room.

Room was clearly recently remodeled and very contemporary . Microwave and small fridge were a nice bonus. 20% off in the bar for guest was another pleasant surprise. The less ideal aspects were due to road construction it was challenging to figure out where to turn after dark. Not the facilities fault but may account for the incredibly low price. Layout is like old school 3 story motor lodge and no elevators make luggage transport less than ideal. Also thought doors opening out onto the walkway seemed odd. Overall would recommend

Still a pigs ear

They did a nice job of dressing this hotel up but it is still a old hotel in a bad location. Noisy room both from other guest and steer outside. Site pictures show beach but the closest access to beach is far away. Rooms are accessed from the back exterior which was had poor lighting.
