It depends, you have to review the HOA by laws and see if they have a right of no entry clause. Also whether they have been to court or attached a lien is also relevant.

Check your condo by laws, but generally no, they can not deny you access without having done so properly through the legal system.

Owning a property with a HOA is subject to a contractual relationship between the unit owners and the HOA. Unit owners paying the monthly fees is part of the obligation. If have not paid the monthly fees in 3 years, the HOA may be exercising its rights. You should review the Bylaws/Regulations for details on what the HOA can and cannot do.
