Desk manager let us park before scheduled arrival time. Gave us beach tags right away to get on the beach and come back later to do our check-in. Continental breakfast had bakery quality doughnuts and decent coffee.
Lumpy bed. Tight bathroom. Lucky I brought my own pillow and blanket.
The price was affordable.
No soap-I had shower gel but no small soaps
Breakfast available everyday. Use of the grill. Heated Pool. Office staff always asking if everything was ok.
Housekeeping could have been a little more vigelent.
stains on the bed sheets, disgusting dirty floors, toilet paper dispenser in bathroom was broken, bed was extremely hard. management was rude
the beach, rides, and boardwalk were so close to the hotel! great location(:
showers are too small haha
The location of the motel was perfect for us. The motel has a pool and the 2nd and 3rd floor balconies overlook the ocean.
I don't like sleeping in a closet. The rooms are very small and have a closet like setting. The bathroom is small and the shower is extra small.
Location to boardwalk
Dirty! Cleaned room once in 4 days and this was after several requests to front desk. Balcony had food wrappers, a comb and a half eaten sandwich the entire stay. Bathroom full of hair and refrigerator full of sand!
Black mold in the shower, no soap to even wash your hands! Bed was squeaky and lumpy.
close to the beach and located in the quiet area away from the noisy boardwalk.
The room was too small for 2 adults, 5 and 10 year old kids. Furnitures (bed, table and side table) were old and on its last legs.
The rooms were not cleaned everyday. Showers were VERY small.
There was a nice breakfast included. Close to the beach.
The grounds were dirty. Cigarette butts on the ground that were there for my entire stay, along with a cookie wrapper out side my door for 4 days. One day house keeping did not make my bed or bring me clean towels.
Walking distance to the beach and boardwalk. I like the tiki bar in the morning, it wasn't the best breakfast but the thought that it's free and the waffles are good! Love the heated pool after a day at he beach where you can relax and also grill if you want to.
After the storm and fire, it hasn't been the same. Hopefully it will be better next year when everything is back in place. The place is noisy if you happen to be staying with youngsters next door.
Terrific service - staff was friendly and outgoing from the manager through the houskeeping staff. They really went out of their way make sure everything was good for our stay. Location is ideal - close enough for easy access to boardwalk, but away from noise and crowds.
Very minor issues - Should be able to put beach badge deposit on room credit card instead of having to use cash. Would like to have slightly larger size soap and other toiletries provided.
Pool was immaculate.
Room was small.
Water not draining outside our room on the ground, staff took to long to come to the front desk when there was a problem
Close to the beach, friendly staff who goes out of their way to be helpful.
location was good. and people were nice and it was pretty clean in the room. air conditioner worked well. the outside area was kind of dirty though. but the room rate was a good deal for the area.
outlets in room didn't really work; refrigerator wasn't on and room was pretty cramped.
Desert Palm Inn was great. Before leaving home I called to confirm my reservation and the man was really nice. We stayed one night in a snug room with no soap or shampoo but it was no big deal. Tv was fine, there was closet space, the towels smelt very clean. We didn't have badges to get on beach but for a $50 deposit you can rent them and then get your money back! In the morning after my night stay, I was concerned with where I'd get coffee. I went downstairs to go to the beach and DPI had a breakfast stand set up. It made my morning. Donuts, waffles, bagels and, most important, coffee. When we checked out the men downstairs were very interested in how our stay was and were just so pleasant. After I returned home from NJ, I was excited to go to bed as it was very late. That's when I realized I left my pillow in the room. I called today and they had it and said they'd send it to my home. I asked if they needed my CC info to bill me for shipping but the manager had picked up the tab. Even before that I was happy with DPI. I highly recommend it.
Great shore motel. Clean. Great location. Beach badges included. Bagels & coffee in the morning. Definately would go again
The motel is right across the street from the beach so that was great. The guys at the desk were very friendly and helpful when asked for dining recommendations and such. We planned on going to the beach the day we checked out and asked if we could leave our car parked there until we left later that afternoon. They said that would be fine which saved us from having to move it after we checked out.
The room was small, but It's probably like that in all beach hotels.
The Staff was SO accommodating, and this place was a great value for the price. Pool, parking, and across from the beach! Also it's vicinity to Seaside Heights couldn't be beat, we spent the day on the beach and then walked up to were the action was at night. perfect beach weekend!
This place was a little rough around the edges in terms of décor etc, but it was extremely clean, so I really can't complain.
Freindly, courteous staff. assisted in keeping adjacent room and porch noise down. Nice touch with complimentary morning coffee
bathrooms not very clean. no soap or shampoo in room. noisy "neighbors."
Boardwalk and beach across the street and restaurants nearby. Friendliness of desk staff/owner. Quiet off season. Ocean view rooms available. Small fridge and microwave. Rooms reasonably clean. Outdoor (shared) balcony with tables and chairs.
Furniture and bath fixtures noticeably worn/run down. Beds had squeaky metal box and were "mushy." Room and bathroom small/crowded. No frills in every respect.
location, location, location!!!
Nothing I didn't like
on the beach
nothing really for the money and location
