Our stay at the Botel began with a bit of trepidation. We were originally supposed to stay in unfinished, hostel-style rooms with two strangers. However, upon arrival, due to the calamitous state of the rooms, the hotel manager, Joey, upgraded us to a private room with King sized bed at no charge! It was an amazing gesture that made the...

This could be such a cute and unique place, but it is a trash hole. I'm not sure what happened to the beautiful furniture in the pictures you can see on here- but it all wasn't there during my stay. The AC had black mold in it. There was no electricity in the room in which I stayed. Only one... More

This hotel is right where you want to be if you're visiting Fire Island Pines. Super convenient to everything, right in the middle of the harbor and next to the bars and grocery store. Tim in the office was very helpful and the hotel is lucky to have him. He was incredibly accommodating throughout our stay. We had a beautiful... More

Wasn't sure where to crap because the whole place is a toilet. We were on the 3rd floor of the hotel, which unfortunately wasn't high enough for suicide. Was pretty sure that I could hear someone sobbing from the manager's office for one of the nights I was there. I loathe this place.

The room was $600 a night. My pictures show what you'll get for it. Granted Hotel Ciel is a party place and most guests come for just that. Before planning to stay here it's good to know what you can expect.

Floor had sand all over it when we arrived. All furniture was broken making it unable to use the drawers. We opted to have a shared bathroom. When showering the knob for the cold water broke so we could not turn off the shower. We went to the front desk to report this but no one was there (and it... More

Had the unique experience of staying at the Hotel Ciel for 2 nights June 15th and 16th, 2012. Unfortunately there were no reviews when we booked, and by the time we saw them it was too late to change. Our Mistake... We stayed in Room 107 on the Blue Whale side of the hotel, which was a disaster. I don't... More

Where shall I begin? My Partner and I stayed at this "hotel" June 15 & 16, 2012. First, you walk into the office which is the size of most closets. The person working at the desk at 3:30 p.m. which is prime check in time was nowhere to be found. He checked us in without too many problems although he... More

Avoid this hotel at all costs! Stayed there this weekend after all of the hotel advertising that it had been recently renovated. Well this is what I found. An air-conditioner that was falling out of the glass door, no cold water running to the sink in the bathroom (I had to turn it on and off at the shutoff valve... More

from the moment i set foot on the island I knew it was a mistake. it is a cross between a soviet style dorm and a $25-a night motel furnished with 20 year old IKEA beds and lamps and mould in the shower where they can charge $400 a night during party weekends thanks to their monopoly in the Pines...
