The staff was super friendly, Free unlimited wifi, and free laundry. And the room was super clean and nice. And free airport transfer. And it's only 5 minutes by car to the airport, you can walk but it will take 30 min walk.

We rocked up expecting a basic room but were pleasantly surprised by how new and well equipped the room was. The staff were very helpful and suggested a lovely cafe down the road for a delicious brunch before we set off on our travels. Excellent stopover stay!

They have laundry facilities too! I accidentally wandered around the back of the rooms and ended up in a private area for the...

This is a clean fresh motel within a very short distance to the airport. They offer a free shuttle to and from the airport within reasonable hours. Outside of that they have an arrangement with a taxi company where you get an upfront fare cost. Another reviewer described Bill as a "cranky pants" and I would have to agree!!! But...

I would highly recommend this motel. Pat and Bill are very helpful and friendly, and the rooms are clean and well equipped. The shuttle service was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would choose the Airport Palms again.
