This is a very pretty pristine boutique hotel with free breakfast on the weekends and free beach chairs, towels and umbrellas and a wagon to tote them to the beach. The staff was pleasant especially Frank. It's close to good restaurants and shopping but is also very quiet at night for sleeping.The only criticism is the size of the rooms,... More

We stayed in the Battery Park Suite in the Palms Bay East location. Never again. As we are a family of 5 this was really the only way we could stay on fire island for a couple of nights. This suite is supposedly for 6 people. It cost over a 1K per night and unfortunately the cons far outweighed the... More

The Palms Hotel is ideal for a Fire Island "getaway", offering nice, clean accommodations and useful amenities. It's greatest strength is the gracious service delivery of its team - Jeanine, Phil, Bianca, Donald, et al. The Palms is easily Fire Island's best hotel.

My friend and I stayed at the Palms Hotel on Fire Island for 2 nights for a weekend getaway. When we got off the ferry from Bay Shore, there was someone from the hotel waiting for us at the dock. There was very nice and convenient. However, the room we got was very small and quite dirty. The floor was... More

My wife and I recently decided to spend three nights in Ocean Beach as a little getaway for our 40th Anniversary. After doing some research, it appeared The Palms was the only "good" hotel in town. I knew it would be pricey (like anything else on Fire Island where everything has to be shipped in by boat) and indeed the... More

Located steps from ferry, 7 minutes from beach, great beach chair/towel etc accessories. Nice people. Cute decorations. But filthy. Stairs to 2nd floor had dirty dust bunnies; I found hair in my shower and I am bald. They don't believe in vacuuming, only sweeping. Inadequate towels. Shelf with topiary about to fall off wall in bathroom. Fingerprints everywhere. Cushions had... More

For a very nice, comfortable, beach getaway, the Palms was fantastic. Service at both the front desk and the courtyard/loft were excellent, professional and very accommodating, especially Andrew, Jose and Donald. Our family felt like regulars at a private beach club. The beach chair/towel/umbrella and wagon usage was fantastic, bike rentals were great, and weekend continental breakfast of assorted muffins,... More
