“Cherry Grove Beach Hotel is good enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2008

The Cherry Grove Beach Hotel is perhaps the only lodging in Cherry Grove you can book on the Internet. The daily or weekly lodging options on Fire Island are very limited. If you have tons of money, there are Fabulous Homes that can be rented in Cherry Grove or Fire Island Pines, weekly, monthly or for the season. But you will easily pay $20,000+ a month for luxury. For the season, it is possible to get a very small space for under $20,000. Don't be surprised by rentals for $60,000 and UP for the season. But if you are looking for a few days, the Cherry Grove Beach Hotel is your best bet [and it has a great pool]. Daily rates for VERY simple rooms run as low as $80 for an early or late season weekday. The same room will cost almost $400 for a major weekend holiday. You are not going to Fire Island for the lovely rooms unless you are renting for the season. A weekday getaway can be very affordable and delightful. Go for the incredible beauty of the beaches and the location and the isolation and for the sense of Gay History. Making friends is easy. There are no cars, not even bicycles. Only narrow boardwalks where everyone says hello when passing. Try the Grove Hotel and enjoy its simplicity. No phone, no TV (unless you opt for a "deluxe" room). The relaxation begins with the 20 minute ferry ride. Let that set the tone. Relax. Let your hair down. Talk with strangers [unheard of in NYC!] And never mind that your room will be more simple, cramped and plain than the dullest Motel 8. You're on Fire Island. You're home.
