"Good quality for the money."
The only real problem was the wifi connection. Wi-fi was intermittent to non existent. Front desk staff was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, close to the good stuff"
I had a fairly good time at this place. It really has the ambience of a motel rather than a fancy hotel (only 4 floors). The pool overlooks the HIGHWAY and is very tiny...i =did= like the outdoor bar off to the side of the pool and you could order some pretty decent food from that location. My two main complaints??...(1) I asked for a wakeup call and […] DID NOT GET IT at ALL the first time; got it about 30 minutes LATE the next time, and, (2) the rooms overlook the POOL which means lots of noise, even PAST MIDNIGHT (i had to call downstairs to ask the girl at the desk to do something about it; I could not tell if she did =anything= about it, because the noise continued for a while). POSITIVES include a Starbucks directly across the street, and relatively easy access to all the beach and club activity on A1A. OH, and the price is right, too...especially if you are going to be staying multiple nights, like I did. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel. Affordable and updated"
We stayed there for seven days. No complaints. And the pool is 24hours. The room was nice with a balcony.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent Hotel - Probably won't stay there again."
The hotel from inside appeared to just have been remodeled, which at first look was very welcome and contemporary. Beside that, and the front desk being friendly, the rest wasn't that great. Bartender/server, didn't have any sense of urgency, and would rather finish their cigarette before worrying where our food was (waited 40 minutes for our lunch […] where my wife and I were the only table in the restaurant). The room would not be cleaned unless you called for house keeping. We would come back from the beach, and not have any towels to take a shower. had to wait for another 30-45 minutes until house keeping came and finished changing the towels/shampoos/garbage. The water in the bathroom was yellowish, which the front desk said that it was normal in Ft. Lauderdale, but that was not the case for another hotel a mile down the street, where their water was clean. We had to buy gallons of water a convenience store to brush our teeth. For 4 story hotel, with 66 rooms, there was only 1 elevator, sometimes we would wait 5-10 minutes until the elevator would finally come to us. Overall this could have been a great hotel, but because of the issues I ran into, I don't think I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was not accommodating. You have to walk five very long blocks to beach access. There is no ice machine. The walls are thin, there was an adjoining room to ours and we could hear every move the people made in the next room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My 1st time visiting Florida especially for my 30th birthday and I'm certainly glad that I choose this hotel. It looks so beautiful at night "love the lights, don't really care for the pool though!" Room is exactly what it displayed and is very clean. Hotel Staff are extremely nice, great food "Thanks Chef" and I Love happy hour. Definitely great location […] although it was a little difficult to locate an entrance to the beach. I pretty much drove 15-20min away for my convenience but I must say that I would stay here again. Thank You Everyone at "Royal Beach Palace" Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed the stay, room was clean, nice pool area, staff friendly would definitely stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great choice for Ft. Lauderdale"
The hotel doesn't look as nice from the outside but once you enter the lobby you will notice that it has been complete remodeled. Lobby, room and bathroom were very nice. The kids enjoyed the pool too. Location was average. It was not on the beach side and we had to go down a couple of blocks to find a beach entrance. On the other hand there is a pharmacy […] and grocery store almost directly across so you could find anything you needed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The first glimpse of the ocean for our children"
We arrived in the night, the hotel exterior was way cute, lots of palms and the area around the pool was beautiful. The inside was awesome, just like the pictures. Our kids loved that there was a terrace, the beds were very comfortable. Then in the morning when the kids looked outside they could see the ocean ! the whole time was awesome.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beach Front Lie"
This is a very nice hotel. The rooms are clean, the beds comfy, I loved that I had a patio overlooking the pool and highway however I thought the hotel was beachfront from the way it was advertised and it most assuredly was not. That disappointed me greatly. So do not book a room here if you are looking for beachfront.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent Hotel with Clean Rooms"
The hotel has been recently renovated on the inside, which is great. Also - there's a nice pool and tiki bar area. The lobby staff were friendly and helpful. However, there is no direct beach access. You have to walk about 1/4 mile to get to the access area (or drive).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not on the beach!!"
It was very odd and quirky outside- but lovely in MY ROOM! I thought I was on the beach- but couldn't see it ; ( My badGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for price"
Great location, parking wasn't an issue even late at night, front desk people were very nice. Room & bathroom were clean, everything was working properly. The only complaint I had was that our sliding door did not close/lock. We weren't too concerned as we were on the second floor and honestly too tired to care as we came in late from a concert but […] I'm sure for others it could be seen as a bigger issue. At the end of the day you get what you pay for, if you want a room just to sleep in for the night for a GREAT price, come here if not go to a Hilton etc and pay more.

"royal beach play"
This was a great hotel. No lie it was a fantastic stay. My husband and I booked the deluxe sweet for a romantic nice night. It was a lovely room with a great view overlooking the street and you could sort of see the beach. You have to be 21 in order to check in. I'm only 20 so I wasn't able to do it. The room service is pretty nice. The food was prepared […] great. The bar they have has a very nice lounge. We grabbed some drinks before we went out. Overall it was a really cute stay.

"Nice, But Not What Was Promised"
My problems are that the description on Expedia does not match the reality of the hotel. It is not steps to the beach. It is blocks - approximately 8 blocks. The 'partial-view' balconies allow you to look through the high rise buildings across the street to catch glimpses of the ocean, again, several blocks away. You cannot see the beach from the hotel […] - just the ocean if your room is on the fourth or third floor. The pool is very small and only has a 6 foot depth at maximum. However, it is very clean and, when lit up at night, looks just like the pics. The room was nicely appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable. However, there is no information in the room to help you enjoy the city on your stay. no yellow pages, city magazine, info sheet with restaurants, cab companies, etc. Nothing! the television is flat mounted to the wall. Because it is stationary, it was impossible to see from the small sofa, placed at a storage angle on a side wall. in act, the only place to comfortably watch television is from the bed, unless you're going to move furniture. The hotel staff is exemplary. They are helpful, professional and friendly. Since I didn't venture far on this trip, I was especially grateful for the very engaging bartenders/waitresses at the lounge. They created a very friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Since I was alone and this trip was more about rest than anything else for me, my stay was still pleasant. But this is not the place for your family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Well renovated hotel near the beach"
An excellent location close to the beach, Galleria shopping mall and the best area of Ft Lauderdale. It's clean, comfortable and well run. Everything was clean and comfortable. I'll be happy to return.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great value. Clean,comfy and accommodating."
Was able to check in early. Beautiful, clean pool. Accommodating staff. Little confusion at check in but was my fault. Clean updated rooms with fridge and small microwave. Short walking distance to food, souvenir shop. Grocery and pharmacy across street. Beach only a block away. Bus stops nearby. Only negatives are all rooms face street. Loud Music […] at bar until 10pm on friday. No ice machine (have to get at bar) or laundry area. Had to walk about a block so not real bad. I will stay here again for sure!

"Noise as it could be"
Just in front a traffic road. Single glass window and old doors do not block the noise coming from street.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfortable and lovely hotel"
The rooms looked just as good as they did in the pictures. The beds were very comfortable, I had almost no problems sleeping and sleeping is usually hard for me. There were chairs and a long desk which was nice, and there was plenty of room to walk around. There was also a balcony. The front desk people were quick and friendly. I will admit that having […] to going to the public beach access thew me off, but then I realized it was a common thing around this area. What can a small hotel do about those giant condos anyway? I went to north Miami and there were also hotel and condo barricades. This hotel was in walking distance of a lot of things. Walking distance to Lauderdale by the Sea, clubs, restaurants, shops, and a bakery. The pool was nice if kind of small, the bartender was nice, and the lights at night at the hotel looked cool. The only strange thing I found was that the mattresses had those white sheet wraps around them. I am not sure if it was a preventative measure or if they had some kind of bug problem. Prevention in the hotel industry sounds like a good thing though. I really enjoyed my time in this hotel, and in Florida. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to restaurants and the beach."
Very confortable, access to commercial routes. Cuban restaurants, and peruvian.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach"
The rooms were spacious and clean. I liked having the patio, it faces the front of the hotel so when it's open you can hear the waves from the Ocean. Overall the hotel was nice and the location was chill...good vibes. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really found it to be a nice place great location and super low key. Rooms were nicely appointed probably renovated in the past few years. Beds were super comfie. Linens crisp white and soft..they have them professionally laundered off-site...makes a difference! Don't mind the quick drive down to Corporate Dr where the beach is. Plus right across the […] street is a CVS, WINN DIXIE and more. Hotel restaurant food is really tasty and not terribly expensive. Balcony's for every room a plus. Partial oceanview rooms best on top floor center, you see across the street the partial view between 3 high rise condos not bad its partial. Good sound proofing of balcony window, you don't hear cars on A1. Staff pleasant and even gave my Aunt a comp drink for her birthday at the bar. Cute pool in the front, parking great and free!

"Very nice and cozy hotel"
Friendly staff and very clean hotel at a reasonable priceGenuine Expedia guest review
More of a motel than a hotel but I enjoyed my stay Pros friendly staff, good wifi nice room Cons parking lot can fill up and the second parking lot is a little walk away The access to the beach is also a few blocks away and across a major street . But I would recommend this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was advertised on Expedia as having a "partial ocean view." The hotel is across the street from the ocean and the view consisted of a small peek between two massive high rise condo buildings! If you check in on Friday or Saturday find out if your room is next to the bar because they have karoke blasting and you will have no choice but to listen […] for hours so you had better like off key signing. Found a large cockroach crawling in the bathroom. While I was waiting in the lobby for something, I overheard the front desk clerk talking to what I assume was the manager about a guest who discovered three large cockroach's in their bathroom. Appears this is a problem. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not at all satisfied, wouldn't stay here again."
An old motel upgraded to a newer hotel, but still an old motel. NO parking. And a noisy area. Cancelled after the first night and went to another hotel for the remaining week.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a joke!"
These pictures are a scam! That wonderful facade of the hotel exterior looks so inviting, if you enjoy a pool and bar on a four lane main Blvd. All the people around the pool and bar were chain smoking low life's, so I didn't even bother with it. The room interiors are finished in low cost, commercial office plastic wood paneling. The room was loud […] and the hotel staff helped with nothing. This is classic lipstick on a PIG!

"Nice Hotel with pool"
We only stayed one night as we were waiting for our condo we had rented for the week to be available, but I found the property to be very clean and comfortable. The room was spacious, newly renovated and clean. The pool and tiki bar area help get our vacation started.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at this hotel for a week with our whole family and it was great! The room was super clean and the pool was sparkling. The staff was very friendly and polite as well. My only suggestion would be that it's not worth paying extra for the partial ocean view. You can see a little water between 2 buildings but that's it. We would absolutely stay […] here again though. It's super close to beach parking and plenty of restaurants and bars. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Pretty good place. Nice rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I couldn't believe how clean modern and nice the bedrooms are!! And in general the lobby and pool area.

"Be prepared to walk to the beach--on the sidewalks"
The hotel itself is fine, the rooms are quite clean and relatively quiet (if you don't mind the sound of rumbling traffic on A1A). The major problem is that this "beach palace" is not on, or within very close walking distance to, the beach. Now, that may be fine for many people as the walk is about 10-15 minutes (along the sidewalks of A1A as you cannot […] walk 'through' the uber-secure large condo complexes that front the beach). The place is well maintained and beds are comfortable--but--if you expect to walk out the door and a '5 minute' walk to the beach, you will be disappointed. And, Ft Lauderdale being the tourist milking capital that it is, beach parking is NOT free and costs $1.50 and hour--in the unlikely event you can find any as it is at a premium (good work town officials--I mean, why have tons of parking when you have tons of tourists? That's way too logical for a state as off the wall as the Sunshine one.) Winn Dixie and CVS across the street is also convenient. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Better than reviews listed"
After reading the reviews from others, you wonder what did I get myself into. Believe half of what you hear and be your own judge. The rooms were very clean, a remodel had taken place by the looks of the on line photos, which did not do the place justice at all. The pool area was neat and we'll kept, it can use a few more colorful plantings here and […] there. The music needs a few more speakers strategically placed with the volume set to give ambience to the lounge area of the pool. The pool bar is well stocked and the clientele was there to enjoy themselves, to the max. The employees were very helpful and eager to make our stay enjoyable. What else is there to say, location and atmosphere is all you need to have a good time, a clean room , good bed, and a clean shower. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Cheap but get what you pay for."
It was ok. It was clean, but the staff was horrible.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was ok, service was great, complimentary beach towels, rooms clean, balcony door was old and not very secure, lots of people smoke outside and there is always that smell on the balcony. It's about 4 block walk down the main drag to the beach, which was lovely. You need to drive to the downtown area, so if you can find a hotel for a similar amount […] plus parking, you may want to consider that. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"long walk to the beach"
it was good overall. Clean and good service.It had a supermarket conveniently located across the street. Unfortunately, the nearest public entrance to the beach is about 13 minutes walking in the highway, not convenient if you just want to stroll with kids. The balcony faces the highway as well. There is no shower inside available for your last day […] after the check out, I really miss that! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
