2/10 Poor

Awful stay don't recommend!!!
My stay was awful 😖 bugs in the room, opening under the door so rain and bugs was coming in the room and had to put towels under the door to keep them out. No door latches to make you feel safe. The pool wasn't ready to get in and there was a very bad odor that smelled like raw sewage. The bathroom constantly smelled like marijuana and didn't have any exhaust fans, and the shower rod wasn't mounted to the wall. The sliding door to the balcony didn't have a handle and it looked like it would fall. By the way the rooms had window units for the air. Too pricey for the way the building is and i don't feel like it's up to code.

Staying at the Palm Grove was surely an adventure
Staying at the Palm Grove was surely an adventure. After arriving to the hotel that could be on an episode of ‘Catfish’at the check-in time, we waited for an hour, and payed a $100 deposit before receivingour metal door key.The company cares about their employees, seeing as how check-in time is only from 4-6 pm,meaning workers can have quality time with their family and friends. After entering the room,the strong fragrance of raw sewage greets you.This hotel does not offer a fitness facility,but after opening/closing the sliding door a few times, it will feel like a full-body workout. The pool with green water is temporary closed,but after just 0.5 miles of walking, you can visit the sister hotel and go swim in their pool.The hotel not offering wifi offers you and your family more quality time without electronics. Don’t worry about broken blinds, because mold will cover the missing pieces.You will not be disturbed in the middle of the night by a smoke detector, considering there isn’t one in the room.The water running constantly in the bathtub, makes it sound like your sleeping on the beach.The shower knobs are removable, making your showers more spacious.You won’t be woke up by housekeeping early in the morning because they won’t service your room unless you request it.Hotel guests have freedom to party all night long, because of all staff leaving at 6PM.The roaches will wait until dark to greet you.The price was affordable compared to surrounding hotels, we found out why !

Take a pass on this one.
Way to many tings wrong with this place to mention. Didn't pay much to stay on the beach but the place is really run down and probably should be retired. Don't be full by the pics they have posted. There clearly was some photoshopping going on.

Huge hotel fail
This was by far the worst experience ive ever had in a hotel stay. We did not even stay the 1st night. I got online to find us somewhere else to stay right after we got there. The pool was green & out of service. The room was not clean at all. The bathroom had a tub that had rust stains in it. Then there was the roaches. They were the size of a sand dollar & my bed was infested with them. This hotel shoukd not even be open til they make alot of changes. Although, when i went to the property manager about not staying there & told him i had booked another place. He asked what he could do to rectify it & he gave me a 100% refund but i still have not received that refund & that was 5 days ago.

Never again!
The first room we checked into did not have working TV or AC. The new room did, but there were also bugs. Had to go to Walmart and get a can of raid. The balcony door leaked very bad when it rained. Holes in the walls and ceiling were stuffed with tissue. The staff was ok, they seemed to get attitudes if we had a complaint and the pool was absolutely gross looking, I would not have stuck my baby toe in it!

Never again
When I checked in staff was rude. Staff also charged my debit card without me knowing when I was checking in. I had the money to pay for my remaining balance butvwas told they didn't accept cash. Nowhere in the office or hotel that was posted. When I questioned it to the staff member she stated "do what I got to do" in a rude manner. The room was in bad shape holes in bathroom wall. Tried to get maintenance to room to fix toilets but never showed up.

Do not stay here or The Reef or Seahaven
This hotel is also owned along with The Reef and Seahaven and the physical state and customer service of all three is terrible. The whole place is falling apart dirty and smelled of sewage. Apparently the offices close so you have to go down the strip to the other locations to talk to anyone. After watching the attendant who locked out several other people trying to check in dig through a plastic container of keys I was left at my hotel and told they would be back with a key and that they would find me. I needed up having to go to both other locations where the customer service was terrible. I got my room moved to The Reef where there was brown standing water in the sink, the bathtub bottom bowed up and bounced when stepped on. Regular house paint was visibly peri long off the tub, shower walls, and drain. The bathroom floor was filthy and the door connecting to the adjoining rooms lock was hanging out of the wall. After seeing the state of the room I go to find that the office is closed and I would have to go to another location to speak to anyone. No one answers the phones I have tried to call for two days. The employees visibly and audibly spoke in front of me that they could not believe that I was displeased with the check in process. I have never in my life seen such a mismanaged dump. I will be calling the city for inspections to be done. We had finished our vacation rental for the week and had one xtra night and this company ruined the entire evening.
