I love/loved the Palms. I used the hotel once or twice a year over the last 2-3 years. The combination of location and the price was what made me decide to stay there. The new pricing is cost prohibitive for me. Again I love this Hotel but that pricing is more like a Hotel that would have a restaurant, bar,...

This was the coolest place to stay in Neptune Beach. Great location, fair rate, supurbly clean. And wonderfully friendly staff. We are definately staying here again our nextvisit to Jacksonville. We have stayed at Ocean One and were really disappointed in the refurbishing. The Palms refurbished this old motel into something special.

Hotel Palms is a killer spot to stay. The staff and owner are world class. The feeling and atmosphere are far better then a large hotel. I strongly recommend Hotel Palms to anyone staying in the Jacksonville Beach area.

Amazing location, totally beautiful decor (you will want to instagram everything!) and the friendliest, warmest staff. And a fire pit in the middle of the courtyard under palm trees makes you feel so relaxed and at home.

Corinne, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at The Hotel Palms. The courtyard was designed to create a venue for interaction but also set the rooms off in a private manner.

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
