    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.

    Nice modern rooms and comfortable beds. Stayed here because we had an early flight the next morning. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Only negatives can get noisy with people leave at all hours to catch flights. Airport shuttle only runs business hours. Would recommend.More

    Get the airport shuttle The folks who run the shuttle also manage the hotel. They are great people. Do not use a cab. They are expensive

    If there is no public transportation within walking distance, take the complimentary shuttle to the airport, I'm confident that there are buses making scheduled runs to the city center...check the airport website.

    They do not start the airport shuttle service too early, maybe 8 AM. They arranged a 4:30 AM taxi for me. It showed up on time and only cost about $7 (USD) with tip.
