We were heading down to West Palm Beach for a scuba diving trip and needed a place to crash to break up the drive. We arrived around 1 am and were able to get a room at the Hotels.com rate which was $49. As my husband was paying for the room I started reading the reviews here and got a... More

I needed a place to stay for a few night that was reasonable and safe. I checked out Golden Palms. Glad I did. The room was safe, clean and comfortable. The staff was really helpful and nice. I'll recommend this place.

This has to be one of the worst experiences I've ever had while traveling! Once we arrived we went to our room to change to go swimming, but once down by the pool we found drug paraphernalia and a turniquit. So we decided to just go to our room because we were only there for a day. For back to... More

So, through a series of unfortunate events we had to stay at this inn due to all the other hotels being booked. We did not realize it was daytona weekend and we were travelling to camp in the Ocala forest the next day plus we are from Canada so couldn't really turn back. For one night we spent nearly 200...

I want to caution anyone wanting to stay at this hotel. I worked for this company for one month and they are devoid of any corporate ethics or morality. They tell a customer that they are charging them $47.99 on their credit card but really charge them $300 in hopes that the customer won't notice. The owners are Indian and... More

We were forced to stay at this hotel leaving Disney late and trying to find a place to stay. Most hotels in the area were full. This was our final choice after driving 3 hours.
