Before motels. there were motor courts. At their best, these accomodations were pleasing to the eye, homey and affordable. The Palm retains these attributes. It is walking distance to downtown Ashland's attractions, including the OSF. (A mile stroll along the main street.) For a comfortable unpretentious stay in Ashland without the forced intimacy of a B&B or mind-numbing sameness of a chain motel, The Palm is a great choice.
