i've never stayed at the palms... but it looks like a great place... although i always recomend the"ruby's hotel" to folks who look for a less expencive accomodation....but need a friendly clean ...and secure plc. to stay... the gomez family at rubies...and thier staff will take good care of you....and not at an absorbant price...[ ruby's hotel...now has two locations to serve you...one right on the beach and one right on the lagoon....]
I stayed at the Palms in October of '01 and was very happy with it. The rooms were big, we had a great view of the ocean and it is easy walking distance to anything in town. I do not remember the pricing, but is was a good deal!
