We stayed for one night with the kids traveling home, it was clean and everything works. The cash we saved staying somewhere budget we spent on dinner and breakfast. If you are staying for 2 weeks you probably want to throw a few more bucks at a fancier joint but for one or two nights it's fine.

Clean and comfortable room, couldn't hear any road noise even though it's on a busy road. Couldn't get the wi-fi to work. Sadly no microwave in room but is close to shops and pizza places if you're on a budget. Would stay again if passing through

Very impressed with the staff at this hotel. They all were polite and worked hard to impress. We turned up at 9am to speak to the receptionist about what we would have to do for late book in that afternoon. She told us not to worry and booked us into a room which had been empty the night before. It...

Convenient location on Lakes way, comfortable and clean, great for a stop over. Not far into town for supplies or to beaches and lookouts. Fast checkin. Nice looking rooms. Happy to find a 2 room option for a motel room to sleep the family comfortably. Not particularly good view out back but looks like works in progress. May need some...

Very impressed with cleanliness and features of the room - a/c and flatscreen TV plus free internet. Was in the area for work and whilst my work would normally put me up at a hotel for convenience at island palms- i had everything i needed. Also, the pool was nice to cool down in after a long day at work.

From a warm welcome, to helpful staff, a nice clean room and a lovely pool from start to finish this is great value for money. A short walk to the shops, and a short drive to the lake and beach. Nice quiet location. Recommend walking upto Cape Hawke lookout, the view is worth the stairs. Will come back here for...
