We go on vacation to do the tourist thing, not stay in the room. With that being said, this place was great for sleeping and showering. The room was small so was the bathroom. The beds were comfortable. Pillows not so much. (bring your on pillow) The carpet was very dirty (keep your shoes on), but everything else seemed to... More

Stayed for a girls weekend to Tybee. Close walk to everything. Older, but very clean rooms. Stayed upstairs in Room 121. Probably the least expensive hotel in Tybee, but much better than expected. We had a fabulous time and will be back very soon!! Bring your own shampoo and hair dryer, this is a no frills room, but perfect for... More

We arrived on Monday , July 7 and checked out Thursday , July 10 2014. The office staff was pleasant and welcoming. He accidentally overcharged my card and immediately fixed it. We stayed in room 123 ( upstairs) . The room was clean but very outdated. The wifi worked great though so that was a huge plus. The beds were... More

It is in a good location, and price was right. Room was clean, no frills, so don't expect a lot of extras. Room had a fridge that worked great and a coffee maker. That is all we needed. Staff was friendly and pool was clean.

This was pretty much what I expected from reviews and what I knew about Tybee. I'm not one to spend a fortune staying there, once it gets a certain price level I stay towards I-95 and make the drive over. This motel was no frills though. The bed was hard, the carpet rough, bathroom small. It made do for what... More

This was a good place to stay for a couple of nights. The room & pool were very clean; staff was very nice & helpful. The beds are not the most comfortable, but still ok for the price. The parking is very tight if you have a medium/large SUV, we couldn't fit our vehicle in our parking spot when we... More

The Royal Palm Motel is a small family owned and operated motel that is located one block from the ocean on Tybee Island. It is an old, but well maintained property. We like for our guests to be informed that the rooms are "nothing fancy", but are clean and comfortable. All of our rooms include a fridge, microwave, mini coffee pot, bathroom, TV with cable, and air conditioning. We have a 20'X40' swimming pool. We strive to maintain a family style atmosphere, so we do not allow parties, loud music, or overcrowding of rooms. Parking is free, but limited to one vehicle per room.We have a 48 hour cancellation policy. We have a 2 night minimum for reservations any time and a 3 night minimum during holiday periods.Sorry, but pets are not allowed in the rooms or on the beach on Tybee Island. ... more   less
