We arrived considerably earlier than our estimated time of 3pm, but the cheerful young lady at reception accommodated us with no problems.
The standard room we had booked was compact, but very nicely appointed and with a good-sized bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and there was a good selection of local information (maps, brochures etc) in the room.
We were directed to the restaurant at a motel across the road for our evening meal, and enjoyed our meal there - good quality and reasonably priced. As others have mentioned, there didn't appear to be other restaurants within walking distance, although the rooms have micro-wave and crockery/cutlery, so dining-in would be an option.
The airport is a five minute drive away, making the Airport Palms the perfect airport motel.
