We had a 40th Birthday party there,rented the whole place! It was perfect for 20-40 people,space allowed for the kids to run around in the courtyard. It's walking distance to the beach and at least a dozen restaurants! Walgreens conveniently right across the street.

At first glance, the hotel looks like a motel from the '60's. When you step inside the gate, there is an open reception area with a cute little bar and a couple small tables. Checking in at reception is quite easy and they are very friendly. They sell wine and beer throughout the day and there is coffee and snacks...

The location is great! Walk to the beach or to the many shops and eateries in Atlantic Beach. The hotel itself is newly renovated, fresh, and clean with a lovely outdoor courtyard including a fire pit. The owners are friendly and personable. Overall, this is a wonderful, cozy place to stay.

We rented the entire place for a 40th birthday party, it was amazing! The owner, Greg, and manager, Chandler were both very nice, very helpful, and very attentive. This is a perfectly private place for a party or family gathering. I cannot say enough about how nice and fun it was!!

This was the second time coming to this beautiful, quiet, beach escape. My boyfriend and I went in March of 2016 while it was still the 1950's themed Palms Retro Resort. We had an amazing time last year and knew we wanted to come back this year since the whole place had been renovated. Wow were we impressed! The location...

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Hotel Palms. The hotel is a converted '50's style motel with beautifully updated rooms which are minimalistic in design and offer many technological amenities. The property is within walking distance to many of the top bars and restaurants in Atlantic Beach. The staff is friendly and hospitable with the owner, Greg, on premises....

I don't think many people know about this secret little gem of a motel near Atlantic/Neptune/Jacksonville Beach. I really wanted to give this a 4.5 star if TripAdvisor would let me. The only reason not 5 star is because I think it would be better if they had someone on staff at all times. It's literally 2 blocks away from...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Palms, formerly the Palms Retro, is a boutique hotel located in Atlantic Beach, Florida, The property recently underwent an eight month renovation to include 11 new guest rooms, beer and wine lounge, and private courtyard. A combination of single queens, double queens, and kings, the guest accommodations at Hotel Palms also include a 450 sf., one-bedroom king suite with a queen sleeper sofa as well as a Bunk Room. The Bunk Room is approximately 200 square feet and has a twin over full bunk bed. Located three blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and in walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Beaches Town Center, the Hotel Palms is the ideal getaway for travelers who desire the boutique hotel experience. Because the Hotel Palms is locally owned and operated, guests are encouraged to participate in activities that locals enjoy throughout their stay. From bike riding through the neighboring residential areas and eating at locally owned restaurants to day tripping to the nearby towns of historic St. Augustine and Fernandina Beach, the Hotel Palms staff is always available to provide recommendations and even create customizable itineraries, which will set guests up with activities based on their interests. Situated on a corner lot, the Hotel Palms consists of a single building of connected rooms whose doors face a private courtyard. Each room was designed with a nod to vernacular architecture, which is highlighted through the use of reclaimed wood headboards and custom art pieces, made from palm tree bootjacks. Hotel Palms features 11 airy rooms, many of which have workspaces and sitting areas that look out to the courtyard. Unique light fixtures, large area rugs, bright and beachy throw pillows, and original concrete flooring dotted with coquina shell are just a few of the elements that make each Hotel Palms guest feel as if they've escaped to a private beach bungalow for the weekend. In addition to newly renovated guest rooms and customized itineraries, Hotel Palms guests can also enjoy a private beer and wine lounge, outdoor seating and lounge areas, and an outside fireplace. Regional craft beers from local breweries are served in The Lounge, as well as wines by the glass and/or bottle. Guests can enjoy free bike and foam board rentals, as well as complimentary Wifi throughout the property. Last, but certainly not least, Hotel Palms offers in-room breakfast delivery service as part of an exclusive partnership with local restaurant, Happy Cup. ... more   less

“if you expect a dark room at night, don't stay in one of the queen rooms (I think mine was 304 and the other is 308 - but I could be wrong). If you like properties with character and a personality, rather than stale chains, I'd highly recommend Hotel Palms. ”
