We loved the overall feel of this hotel. The retro theme was fun, our kids especially loved this aspect. The management was very accommodating and friendly. The beach was within walking distance, even with a younger kid in tow.

Like a blast from the past. Nice location close to the beach. Rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. Lot of intersting 50s memerobilia to look at in the room (slightly hokey :-). Cool light-up showerhead in small shower. Beautiful courtyard.
Funky, cool breakfast room with retro packaged snacks (including pop tarts and moon pies) but not much if a healthy breakfast. Settled for an overripe banana. Still fun to see some of the offerings, many I have not seen in years.

Overall a fun Florida experience. A throwback to years past as the name suggests. On-site staff were great. Very clean and quiet. Close to the beach on the edge of a residential neighborhood. I would highly recommend this place if you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary!

This is the coolest place I have ever stayed! The staff are awesome, always helpful, always friendly. The room was very comfortable and the themes are awesome! The best part is that wonderful courtyard! Wow! Wow! Wow!
The bathrooms are tiny, as the original bathrooms were anyway so this really isn't a complaint. Not handicap assessable and there is a big drop coming out of the shower. Adding a step there would be nice and kind to old knees!

I cannot brag on Palms Retro enough! I lived in this area in the 80's when this hotel was a homeless and crack head hangout. It was completely derelict and I don't know why it wasn't condemned. Was has been done to this place is amazing! The rooms, the themes, the incredibly accommodating staff, the breakfasts, every little detail is well thought out! Unique and very very cool. I felt transported to the 50's. Except better because I doubt the hotel had AC when it was built in 1946. The courtyard is so nice, we ate breakfast out there almost every morning. They will build a fire for you in the fire pit and there is also a BBQ grill. The 50's music played very low, adds to the wonderful ambiance. The rooms are very comfortable, and even if a party is going on on the courtyard, you can't hear a thing once you close the door. It's so nice that they allow and even encourage visitors. We had a small family gathering while we were there, so much fun! The location is great, walking distance to all kinds of restaurants, shops, and of course the beach. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we visit Jacksonville! ...read more

I liked the personal service...at check in we received a tour of our room with an explanation of the amenities...nice touch
Plumbing was a little precarious...a sewage smell with the water in the toilet when flushed

The hotel was great - it is an old courtyard style motel renovated very tastefully with decorated theme rooms...also had modern conveniences and was very clean. The beds were comforable and the linens were nice. The courtyard in the middle was shady with small tables and a fountain...a great place to relax with coffee in the morning. It was a nice change from the regular hotels and great to support a local business. ...read more

Nice, clean, wonderful atmosphere and wonderful guests - only 11 rooms - knew them all before we left
nothing

Wonderful hotel. Nice rooms and great atmosphere. "U" shaped hotel with 11 rooms all open to the garden/patio. Everyone meets on the patio at breakfast and in the evening for drinks and conversation. Great staff.
