Very convenient location, central yet quiet. Very clean comfortable rooms and helpful staff. However while most motels have space outside each unit for a small table and a couple of chairs, at Palms you only get these with the minority of units with a balcony which are a more expensive. Not a problem if you just stay overnight but a shame if you stay longer in good weather like many tourists.
