Friendly staff, loan bikes, pool area, food room facilities
Marina and bay view location. Friendly staff. Great happy hour bartender.
The hallway and around the front door of our room number 404 smelt like cleaned up vomit
Quiet seemed out of the way but in fact is not.
Can't think of a thing.
The restaurant on Valentine's evening waited 35 min after I placed order to tell me they no long had scallops. I decided motto order anything else because their kitchen would be closing shortly and I also had my 7 month old son with us and he was getting tired. My fiancé ordered the seared salmon and said it looked and tased like dog food.
The staff was very friendly and helpfu by answering all of my questions regarding the area. They were able to give us an extended check out unti one because we were going to go bike riding and the children wanted to use the pools again before we left. The pools were heated to the perfect temperature. They also recommended a great mexican restaurant in Old Town called El coyote and gave us a coupon for a free appetizer. The staff was so accomodating.
The only problem we had wasn't specificly for the Island Palms but for the advertising of a good place to ride bikes. They advertise free bike rentals for biking and this is not a good location to ride bikes with young children. The path across from the motel is a walking/jogging path and no bikes are allowed. There is another path behind the motel that is paved but narrow and also more for joggers and walkers. We rode our bikes towards the marina and due to the amount of traffic on the roads it was very stressful for us as parents of young children. We found a bit larger of a path to ride on but again it was more for joggers/walkers as it dropped off to a rocky embankment towards the harbor on one side.
The location and area was so laid back and relaxing. We took walks, sat on our private patio and enjoyed breakfast outside one morning.
Great service and will def be back again. Thanks so much!
The staff at this hotel were beyond friendly, they went out if their way to ensure I had an enjoyable stay, excluding leaving a birthday card and gift in my room as I was so far from home and solo.
Good quiet rooms and 2 big beds, lovely dinner and lunch restaurant and a nice area. 2 Good pools. Good value for money.
Staff at breakfast were slow and not attendent so we had only breakfast once, that was the only dissapointed thing we experienced during our 8 days stay. Little fitness center.
We loved the comfortable room (a little bit tight) with king size bed and a nice-sized balcony with views of marina and bay. Walking distance to several restaurants but we really enjoyed the on site restaurant. Nice pools!
This was a last minute decision and was an unexpected pleasure. From the moment I arrived, it was a great surprise .Beautiful view, comfortable and easy access to downtown.
Very friendly helpful staff Even though our room was not marina view still had great city line and harbour view
Can't think of anything.
Our room was spacious with a wonderful view of the marina right outside our door. Every staff person we met was friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. It was a great experience all around!!!!
We were treated so well by the restaurant staff. It was our anniversary and they made us feel so special!!!
Parking was difficult for us - I use a walker. When we came back later in the evening we had to park in the garage, which was a bit of a jaunt to our room.
Location and view , ease of access to rooms , spacious , quite nice for relaxing
Wifi signal is weak
The room was clean. Staff was friendly. Nice location right across from bay and by Marina. Would recommend if traveling by self.
Room was very small. The door hit the bed when opened. No breakfast included. Exercise room was very basic.
We had a suite, very spacious and comfortable plus it had a nice balcony to hang out on!
We had absolutely nothing to complain about, it was a great escape and experience!
Great place to visit
location, kind staff, sunrise in our room. nice balcony with view
military airplanes lack of croissants
The staff was friendly, even the housekeeping would say hello, when we would pass by. Very prompt! We asked for extra pillows and towels when we checked in and within a minute of getting into the room, the towels and pillows were delivered. Restaurant food was excellent, but pricey. The ambiance was fabulous. Loved the view from our window.
Our room was dusty, corners in the bathroom looked like they had grime. The hall wood trim around the doors and down the hall, leading to our room, was dusty. The water main had caused an issue with getting water on Friday. We didn't want to use porta potties. (Though it was good that the hotel was supplying water and trying to make accommodations). So we spent the day out of the room. Personally we thought there should have been a discount for that day, for the inconvenience.
