Was not expecting luxury, but clean and organised at least. We got there at 3pm and were checked in and given the keys to walk into a unmade dirty room. Bed sheets had a dead smeared cockroach on them, bathroom was filthy and we unfortunately we're sharing our room with big live cockroaches too! Staff were abrupt also. Wish I... More

After reading all the reviews of this motel I was dreading my stay, but I was pleasantly surprised. There were no cockroaches, the room was not musty and it was clean. I was there for 6 nights as part of a group booking and most of us were pleased with our rooms. A couple of problems, thumping hot water tap... More

We recently had an overnight stay at the Palms Motel. We chose this motel because it was next door to the Bowls Club, which was convenient for an evening meal. Our room in the Palms was very roomy with all the facilities one expects these days from a reasonable motel (air-conditioning, tea/coffee making facilities, fridge, TV) & a comfortable bed.... More

My friend and I visited here for a 2 night stay, the room and bathroom needed a good clean, we asked for extra blankets and the manager/owner asked us 'why... you already have a blanket on the bed?' the blankets were provided after we had to explain we were freezing, I would not stay here again.

In pouring rain, we found this Motel located next to the Bowls Club and thought it would be a convenient location. We paid $138 for the night and regretted it immediately we opened the door of the room. We were told there were no ground floor rooms available so hiked it up the stairs in the rain. We opened the...

There was a fan heater in the room that if you boiled the kettle at the same time it shut the power off, there were no power points on the wall where the bed was, the bed was uncomfortable, not enough pillows

This property was in pretty poor condition as far as cleanliness. The bed on the other hand was comfortable (appeared to be new) but the bathroom was mouldy and the shower leaked on the floor. I wouldn't recommend this hotel at all.
