I did not like my stay. I arrived and requested a room with a shower but they informed me all the rooms with showers are dirty at the time.

We were two people staying in room 1008 on October 7, 2020. Reception personnel were cordial and efficient in getting us checked into our room at around 9 pm. The room was standard and adequate for 2. We were unpacked and settled in when my wife noticed a sizable urine stain on the couch that was about 5 feet from the bed. There was no… Read more
We were two people staying in room 1008 on October 7, 2020. Reception personnel were cordial and efficient in getting us checked into our room at around 9 pm. The room was standard and adequate for 2. We were unpacked and settled in when my wife noticed a sizable urine stain on the couch that was about 5 feet from the bed. There was no discernible odor, so we were hoping it wasn’t fresh. We were too tired to pack everything up and move to another room, so we were careful to avoid the couch. We sent an e-mail to management and have not had a reply as of 10 9 20. Bottom line; avoid room 1008 if you stay at this property and hope there aren’t other pee stained couches or worse awaiting your arrival. Disgusting. Read less

In short, don’t book here if you’re a POC. The room I was given (1011) is a tiny, odd corner room that is absolutely nothing like the room pictures on the website. It’s ugly with standard 3-star hotel furnishings and decor. Being a frequent traveler, you can tell when the hotel is pushing an undesirable room on you, maybe because that’s what a… Read more
In short, don’t book here if you’re a POC. The room I was given (1011) is a tiny, odd corner room that is absolutely nothing like the room pictures on the website. It’s ugly with standard 3-star hotel furnishings and decor. Being a frequent traveler, you can tell when the hotel is pushing an undesirable room on you, maybe because that’s what a clerk feels like you’re used to or deserve. I had a choice of several 4-star hotels in the area. This really isn’t a 4 or 4.5 star hotel IMO and I’m so disappointed. Would avoid. Read less

The service was excellent and the premises were immaculate; fit for a queen! I really enjoyed the service from the front desk. Mrs. Wydiah treated us like royalty! The fireplace cocktail hour was a really nice touch. I do plan to come back. Thank you so much for helping to make my birthday weekend so special at the Palomar.
