I had stayed at this hotel back in 2015 for a long weekend in the summer. It was a lovely mini getaway for my husband and myself. The room was cozy, and even though it was a little outdated, extremely clean and well taken care of. I recently returned to this hotel in January for a one night stay with...

Yes the hotel is beautiful, but the manager, Jeanine, makes things more wonderful. She gets to know her customers by name, is super accommodating and down to earth. Just making a reservation is a relaxing experience. I look forward to another great summer vacation at the Palms. Thanks, Jeanine.

I came to fire island with 7 of my college friends. We stayed in one of the 8 person suites and really enjoyed our time here. The hotel is extremely clean and the staff is very accommodating. The room is restocked with towels, water bottles, etc. everyday. Both locations are centrally located near all the bars and restaurants and just...

Stayed here for 2 nights mid-week in August. We had some major snafus with our booking experience-in short, despite being told otherwise when booking, we learned 3 days prior to our trip (after calling to confirm a few things) that our room would not accommodate a pack n play for our daughter. We were told we would have to upgrade...

We stayed at the Palms Hotel and loved every minute of their great hospitality. Their service and attention to detail in our room was spot on! Their staff was helpful in getting us a wagon, bikes, towels and water. The location was perfect to restaurants, bars, the ferry and shopping.

The Palms hotel was a great choice for our weekend stay. Me and my Fiancé went to Fire Island to scope out a venue for our wedding. From the moment we checked in, we could tell the staff was attentive and friendly. They helped us with our bags and offered us waters when we took a trip to the beach....

I have been going to The Palms in Ocean Beach for quite a few year now and the service has definitely excelled this past summer. Jeanine is a new manager and has made all the difference in the experience we've had with both her and her staff. Excellent service and rooms are clean and modern. Looking forward to going back...

The hotel room was extremely small! Just barely bigger than the full bed. We had to ask them to change sheets because we could see hair that didn't belong to either me or my husband! Room was not too clean either. The staff was pleasant. That was the only good thing. It was very expensive also! There was no sitting...

This summer we decided to try the Palms hotel. We did a friend's weekend in July, a family week in August and another friends weekend in September. Each time I was truly amazed and impressed with the service, people and staff. When arriving, check in went smoothly and they took all our stuff and we headed to the beach. As...
