The room at Palm court motor inn was large. Parking was a tight squeeze! Not as close to the beach as we expected.No Microwave. The bed was a bit too firm for my liking. The Pool area was being renovated, so we missed out using it! There would have been a nicer view without construction works going on outside our balcony in March 2022.The shower in our suite was small, old fashioned and the shower floor felt weak, like it was about to break!

I booked 1 night through Expedia. I selected pay on arrival as I wanted to pay cash. Check in was 2pm. At 10am, before we even left home, an unauthorised payment was taken from my stored debit card. I rang the motel & was informed that they can take payment anytime they want on the day. This has never happened to me before and I stay in a lot of motels. A courtesy phone call or email would have been nice! No tissues supplied which is poor for a $169 a night room.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The room was clean and functional although it could've used a few bare necessities such as cutlery and a bottle opener which would've made it easier for us to consume our takeaway food. It may be just potluck, but we had some very noisy neighbours arrive home from a night out of partying at around 2:30 am and continued through to after 5 am.

Palm Court was a very convenient & comfortable motel for my stay in Port Macquarie. The carpark is very squishy but adequate. Overall, it is great value.

Short visit, great location
Very conveniently located in the heart of the town, with a balcony overlooking a creek. A little noisy as some work is being done between the hotel and creek.
