We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Palms. The rooms are gorgeous and the beds were really comfortable. We loved the courtyard and sitting out by the fire in the evening. The hotel is located near a wonderful area of restaurants and shops that you can walk to. We will definitely stay again.

We spent two nights at the Hotel Palms. The check-in was friendly and smooth, and we just loved the look and feel of the entire place. The rooms were clean and very tastefully decorated with modern touches. The beds were comfortable, and the linens were high-end. The interior courtyard lent a fun communal feel with a fire pit and plenty...

Small, beautifully renovated property. European design with a country flare. Love the baths and concrete floors that are refreshingly not musty. Definitely would recommend this motel. Close to beach and restaurants. Thank you.

"Hotel Palms" is just what the Jax Beaches needed!! It's nestled a couple of short blks from the ocean and centrally located to everything else. "Hotel Palms" has a distinctive stylish cool vibe, but very comfy too. It's tastefully appointed but not over-the-top "hip". From check-in to check-out "Hotel Palms" goes the extra mile to make your stay extra special....

Great property, the second time I've stayed here. This time, my wife came with me. We stayed in one of the queen rooms (I think it was 304) and the light outside stayed on all night. It kept the room pretty bright at night. We heard the neighbors this time, they had small children. In my previous stay, when I...

I was in Atlantic Beach over the weekend to visit some friends. At the last minute I booked a room here and it was nice. The hotel was friendly and accommodating as I was arriving after hours. There are a number of good restaurants in the area for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Located within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and the beach (without the beachfront price), the Hotel Palms is perfect for both staycations and out-of-towners. It is renovated in a modern and hip style without compromising comfort. The owners are attentive and truly care about your experience. I have already booked a return trip!

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. ”
