This place is located in a great area not far from major roadways. The rooms are actually nice. It says they allow pets but I did not encounter any. The bar is no longer there and that fact needs to be updated on the website. They did have bottle openers so we were able to have some wine. The fridge... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just going to say this hotel is a real find. The prices are excellent for the area and the way the hotel is decorated makes just walking to breakfast fun. From the tall bamboo to the palm trees and other greenery, the oldness of the hotel is made to disappear. My room was well furnished, had upgraded amenities, and was... More

I really liked Wild Palms. This place is clearly an older inexpensive motel that was refurbished and updated with some creative decorating. It is not fancy by any stretch but the rooms were attractive, beds comfortable, grounds well kept and it felt very safe there. The pool area was really nice and the hot breakfast was very, very good, I... More

We were impressed by the fun and friendly front desk staff who made booking in a fun event. We asked for a quiet room and were assured we were given one. The room was extremely clean and well appointed with sparkling white bathrobes for our use. Later we found the bathroom sink did not drain, nor did the bathroom light... More

We stayed here two nights recently and enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the room was well-decorated and clean, and the hotel was a fun place to stay. The Caribbean atmosphere and open air lobby and hallways made this hotel different from the run-of-the-mill chains. The price was a bargain and the breakfast very good.... More

We stay at the Wild Palms when we visit the are. We moved from Sunnyvale a year ago and have found the Wild Palms is one of the best hotels in the area.

This spruced up hotel is typical of most of my experiences with the Joie de Vivre chain. I usually stay at Domain which is just down the street but that was sold out. I was able to get a decent rate at Wild Palms and figured that I should give it a try. As most of the reviewers said, this... More

The Wild Palms location was good, the pool and hot tub were nice, and the breakfast was excellent with many different food choices. Everything was clean and the grounds were very nice.

Perfect little getaway for my husband and I. As with the other Joie de Vivre hotels, Wild Palms has awesome service. Front desk is always friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. Love the decor and ambiance. Pool area is well-maintained. Free breakfast better than most. It was a little crowded, but we always bring it back to our room anyway. Wild... More
