This hotel was clean and affordable. The pool was bigger than the others I saw while walking, and it was also clean. We always like to stay at the smaller family owned hotels, and this met our needs. Plenty of space, and parking was right in front of the room.

I go to Tybee Island for fun and relaxation 2 or 3 times a year, and I always stay at the Royal Palm. The staff is always friendly and the rooms, while very basic, are always clean and comfortable. The motel pool is great, and it's only a one-block walk to the beach. I've recommended the Royal Palm to many... More

My family makes a game out of seeking SAFE and inexpensive places to stay. We're just looking for a place to sleep after we've been out enjoying the sights. We've stayed at the Royal Palm 5 or 6 times. It is very inexpensive, bare bones and quite dated but clean. It's our 1st choice when we're staying at Tybee.

Motel is older but was recommended by friends. Since I was traveling alone, I liked the idea of a smaller motel. Visiting Tybee the beginning of October was perfect. Staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Pool was clean. Beach only a block away. Although there is no night staff, I still felt... More

Chose this for the price and for the price it was acceptable. As you can see the room has a TV, microwave and small fridge. There is a pool which looked clean though I didn't swim in it. The beach is a block away. The downtown area is a ways away. Not much immediately around the motel except a couple... More

The hotel is a small older mom and pop place. The room was clean, water was hot, the staff was very pleasant and friendly. When we come to Tybee were out and about and just want a place thats clean, quiet, has good water pressure for showing and the friendly staff is a great added bonus. We will definitely come... More

it is a good place to sleep. Clean. Pool is nice. They are a block away from the beach. Staff was very nice. It is very economical. We went during Labor day weekend, and they were the only place with vacancy.

My sisters and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago. The room isn't perfect, but the price is and the beds were clean and comfy. Plenty of hot water for three back to back showers, plenty of towels (you do have to ask for extras but they will happily give you all you need) and the air conditioning worked... More
