I love to get away and go to fire island. I recently stayed at the palms and love fire island even more now. The hotel was as nice and clean and the staff was very friendly.I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

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...

First off, I'm not the type to complain, but when I pay close to $500 for a hotel room I would expect it to be clean. This was not the case. Check-in was at 4, but I happened to arrive there earlier, which they said was no problem since the room was "ready". I walked into the room (at the...

So I booked this place pretending it was going to be excellent (it had to, I paid a lot of money and I believed the online advertisement) but no. It's just the worst thing ever. Even when I tried talking to a manager, they just ignored me. -Very expensive and dirty small rooms. -Rude staff (they look at you like...
