    I really liked the stay at Island Palms over the October Long Weekend, I work for Flight Centre and have visited many places. Having easy polite smiling faces and attitude really helps with business. Would stay again in the future for sure...

    We found this motel very convenient with clean and quiet rooms, and friendly and helpful management. Parking was right outside the door, and everything was very well organised. The room was a good size, also light and airy, and included a table for eating/reading.
