Your hotel is excellent and fits into the community of Atlantic Beach fabulously. I would and will recommend your hotel to everyone I know planning a visit to the area. The rooms are amazing, the courtyard warm and friendly. I met new friends while sitting in the courtyard who were deeply interested in the City.

We had a staycation from riverside at hotel palms and it was awesome. Walking distance to all the good bars and restaurants of AB and just 3 blocks from the ocean. Small enough to feel cozy and personal while also being modern and fun. Will Definitely be back!!

Hotel Palms was the perfect spot for my son and fiancé's wedding party and family members to stay. The rooms were great and the courtyard for gathering was beautiful and private. Greg, and staff were excellent and were most accommodating! Thank you again, Greg!

The owners have made this hotel so cool and comfortable. We were there for a family gathering and they provided a bicycle for some of us to use to get around the beach. We highly recommend this location!

The Hotel Palms is a 1940s vintage motel that has been beautifully upgraded with modern fixtures. However some features of yesteryear could not be upgraded, ie. the rooms are not large and the walls are not soundproof. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to bring some ear plugs or ear protectors or noise cancelling headphones. The location...

I can't say enough wonderful things about this little gem! This was my second visit and it was even better than my first! The staff, location, and beauty of this hotel is amazing. I wouldn't recommend it for visits with children - but for teenagers and adults, fantastic!

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. ”
