Wonderful hotel in ocean beach, fire island. Great staff, courteous, attended to all our needs. Perfect location, near town and few blocks to beach, rooms are clean and bright and air conditioned. Hotel has chairs and towels for beach. Also, bikes if want to explore the town.

I felt the need to share my wonderful stay with this amazing hotel. I was greeted immediately with such kindness & consideration the moment my son and I walked into the main building of The Palms Hotel. Knowing August is a busy month, the front desk was busy dealing with guests checking in & out, phones ringing etc.. Ryan and... More

For $500/night you would expect a bathroom that didn't stink. Also no bath tub to wash your children. Because for $500/night the hotel doesn't have a pool for my 6 year old and 4 year old to swim in. I asked the front desk if there was a place on the island that had a pool we could pay for... More

Spent a wonderful, relaxing, hassle-free, few days at The Palms, in the Bungalows building this July. It is the nicest spot in Ocean Beach, and we stayed in a King room for 2 nights mid-week. It is pricey, yes, but you get what you pay for, and staying 2 nights during the week is a good deal. They also threw... More

During the first week of August we stayed two nights in the Chelsea Cottage at The Palms Hotel, which has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, living/kitchen area, outdoor seating area and outdoor shower. We had reserved months in advance and everything from the initial reservation until departure was a pleasure. In our experience, Ryan Kelly, Carrie Rubino, and the entire staff... More

We stayed at The Palms Bay Hotel in Fire Island for 3 days/2 nites July 29-31, 2015 and had the most amazing mini vacation. I went w/my husband, daughter, sister, her husband, their 2 daughters and a niece and although we have lived in Queens and Long Island our entire lives, had never been to Fire Island. We were soooo... More

My stay here was great! Stayed in the midtown suite, which comfortably slept 8 people. The kitchen is huge and the beds are so comfortable. I loved the L'occitane soaps. Everything we needed was gotten for us by James Nyreen, he was super helpful. The place was lovely and extremely clean, would definitely stay here again!

We booked our Anniversary Getaway for June 21-23rd 2015. There was a wedding party staying there that weekend. We approached the counter to check-in at 3pm which we were told our room was not ready yet and they took our cell phone number and would call us once our room was ready. We never received a phone call and approached... More

Had the worst experience ever. The rooms are way overpriced, dirty, and are so small that you can't even move around in them. The bed had pubic hair on the sheets. Had to go to the front desk at midnight and ask for sheets to be cleaned. The bathroom had mold all over the shower curtain and a dirty toilet... More

This hotel is awesome. The rooms aren't big but they are nice and clean and remember you are on Fire Island. What was even better was the staff. Ryan Kelly and Carrie Rubino were just two of the very attentive staff. They were all so nice and helpful with all of our requests. The Towel, beach chair and wagon service... More
