Palm City Motor Inn is awesome. Rooms were clean, comfortable and warm. The owners were really friendly and really willing to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Found it to be close to a shopping center but still quiet. Will definitely be staying here when in Napier from now on.

Our family stayed at Palm City many times now and every time was excellent! All of the rooms we've been in were super clean and comfortable. The owners are amazing - and go the extra mile - even offering to babysit our 3 month old during dinner, upgrading to a bigger room for no extra charge... This is the best... More

Really enjoyed our stay, with rooms that were super clean and a bed that was so comfortable! Hosts were lovely and helpful. Whilst not on the beach front its only minutes to town. Very well priced and we will stay again when in Napier.
