The Palms Hotel seems to be the nicest hotel available on Fire Island but you do not get what you are paying for. My husband and I stayed in the Bungalows for 3 nights at a very high price point. The rooms are clean, bright, and cheery but the beds and pillows are uncomfortable. Our bed (the bed frame was... More

This hotel is a true gem in Fire Island! My husband and I have been coming to Fire Island for a few years and stayed at The Palms for the first time this week. Everything in the hotel was great and made us enjoy the island even more than usual. It is just a short walk to the beach and... More

I stayed one night with a friend at The Palms on Cottage Ave this past week. The room was discounted throught Living Social so it was a great deal. From checkin to checkout everything was perfect. All our questions were answered and everything was easy breezy, no hassles. The guys at "The Loft" were exceptional, they all had smiles on... More

My First time to Fire Island and i spent my birthday at this AWESOMEEEE location. Bike Riding was a breeze and Carrie from the front desk was the best. Informative and just all around friendly and pleasant. Decor was A+ , staff was extremely accommodating

I know Ocean Beach well and have wisely spent spring, summer and fall days here. For a New Yorker who needs a sprinkling of sandy seduction Fire Island delivers every time. It’s expensive for good reasons. If you need a shot of Fire Island magic and beauty, stat, and you can’t afford any frustrations stay at The Palms Hotel. Yes,... More

My friends and I stayed in a suite at the Palms Hotel Sat-Mon to celebrate a birthday. The service was amazing! Upon arrival, we were met at the ferry by an employee who took all of our luggage to our room for us. A private Bay Area was available for us to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather. Throughout our... More

Stayed at the Palms Bungelows for my anniversary. the room although small had vaulted ceiling and was nicely decorated. We were on the second floor which I suggest because you sometimes hear people walking in the street. There is a small refrigerator in the room. The evening turn down with chocolates was a nice touch. Leo and Periel were very... More

I have to say, I was quite impressed with my entire stay at The Palms. I had previously stayed on Fire Island about three years ago at a different hotel and The Palms didn’t even compare. It was clean, spacious and quite luxurious. What really made my stay amazing were all of the interactions I had with one of the... More
