Always stay here when in Townsville on business and could not meet nicer hosts than Wayne and Bev. I have never asked the price ( except V8 week ) and have never been disappointed with the service. Rooms are always clean and tidy and I can always get an evening meal delivered from across the road and put on your... More

The management is very nice. A natural smile on their face as you enter the reception. You just feel like being at home.

Motel Palms was the perfect choice for an unexpected overnight stay in Townsville. Great value for money, clean, good efficient staff and a comfortable bed. All you need really. Reception gave me a good tip on a local restaurant and I had an excellent T-Bone.

I stayed here with my wife for one night due to an early departure to Sydney next morning. The room was large, well furnished with a comfortable bed. No complaints about the bathroom either. The kitchen facilities were everything we could ask for and the tip from the receptionist to get a couple of take away pizzas from nearby "La... More

My Husband and I stayed at Motel Palms for one night in July, during a sales trip from Cairns to Brisbane. We found our room to be Very Comfortable, Clean and extremely affordable. The Pool looked lovely although we did not have time for a swim. We would definitely stay here again.

My family travelled to Townsville to attend a convention which lasted a week. The Motel Palms was just what we were looking for to accommodate our long stay. It is very close to our venue, shops and sporting facilities, which worked a treat if we wanted to buy something to either eat or cook in a hurry. We had a... More

I recently made a trip to Townsville to see the in-laws and I was very impressed with our accommodation pick. Not being overly excited about the in-laws trip we picked a motel over staying with the family. I liked the look of Motel Palms website and we locked it away for our 4 day stay. During our stay we received... More

What a relief it was after travelling for some time to settle for a few days at Motel Palms in Townsville. We stayed in one of the comfortable self contained rooms whilst exploring the neighbourhood and enjoyed the freedom of preparing our own food and eating when we felt like it. Our hosts Beverley and Wayne and their staff could... More

This was our second stay at the Palms Motel. As travellers from NZ we found it to be quiet comfortable and cheap. The staff were very friendly and the service was great. We are heading back early November for our third stay and looking forward to it.

The location is average (with all the other average motels), the room was a reasonable size but had to fit a queen and two singles, the decor is tired, but the place was clean. The price was average, the breakfast was average, the pool was quite nice though your average 'motel size'. The beds were rock hard and the pillows... More
