“Great stay - no hidden charges - no parking charges”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Don't no where someone got the idea there were parking charges - they even welcome truckers! Enjoyed my stay - very friendly staff. Rooms have a "homey" feel - nice when you are on the road for an extended period.

I had the displeasure of staying here while in town on business. The company paid, so I had no choice.
first off my key wouldn't work so I had to walk back down to the lobby
the desk person acted surprised like I was doing it wrong or something, they even went to try it themselves.
when I finally got into my room the door would get stuck so I would have to kick the bottom to get it open. I finally get settled and I notice I'm getting bit by something over & over first thing that came to mind was bed bugs having seen them in the past I know how to identify them but saw no evidence of bed bugs, whatever it was I couldn't see them, dust mites maybe? The last straw was when I pulled the night stand out to plug in my mobile phone I saw what appeared to be a broken crack pipe!
Ive stayed at some bad places but this place takes the cake i will never stay here again,its just nasty!

You basically get for what you pay for. Got a decent priced room and it was pretty simple. Also had a nice HDTV in the wall and a wonderful fireplace. Also my room was located by the pool which made it even more amazing for easy access to the pool and back to the room to rest up. Also another thing compared to other hotels that I found a plus in this hotel..free wifi!? yes free wifi... a lot of the hotels i've been to in NJ and Vegas never had free wifi.. I don't know why but they didn't , this hotel did and that's a huge plus in my opinion.

Room Tip: Like I said earlier...the pool side rooms are amazing :)

My wife and I just recently stayed at this place by accident. What a great accident. We were pleasantly suprised when we went into room. It was neat and clean. The decor was very nice not that outlandish hotel scheme for bedspreads and dark colors. It was bright and tastefully decorated. I will definitely try this place again maybe when I have longer to stay. Just got a short sight of the courtyard and pool area and it looked like a pleasant area to sit either in the morning or after dinner. Keep up the good work guys. Only down side is no sign for the place if I didn't see the writing on the building might have passed up this gem

I'm a big traveler, I live in hotels that's why for me it is very important a room to be clean and the staff to be friendly. I have to say I never got so close with any staff in two weeks- everybody treated me as a family, were very friendly, helpful. Meanwhile my 2 weeks stay in Golden Palms I've met amazing people from all over the world. Had a wonderful time!

What a terrific "find". As their in-house manual states:

"Strangers but once - friends and family - forever. While you are here may you let us become family and make you comfortable and happy as if you were in your own home".
What a pleasant change for the weary traveller.
This motel is true value and has an assortment of accommodations to suit your budget and your needs. There is NO DOUBT we will return spring and fall each year as we journey between southern Florida and our Canadian home. Service - Excellent, Comfort - Excellent - Cleanliness - Excellent! You won't regret giving Golden Palms a try - sure beats the humdrum chain motels.

Room Tip: You may choose from a wide variety of rooms - regular motel rooms with frig and microwave as well a...
