“This is me — 20 years ago and 8 years old — as the flower girl in my mom and dad’s wedding. It’s amazing (and tear-jerking) to know that I’ll be walking down the exact same aisle, but this time as a bride. And looking through my parents’ wedding pictures made it all the more real! Island Palms: thank you for making all of this possible and being the root of all these magical memories.”

“After a tough 2020, and the loss of our mom and older sister, we took the family on vacation to the Island Palms Hotel. This picture of my sister captures it all. A beautiful view of the marina, gorgeous weather, and the love of family is something to smile about. Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful hotel.”

“We loved our stay at the Island Palms Hotel. The room was large and comfy. The location of the hotel was close to downtown San Diego. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly. My 10-year-old loved the swimming pools and all the walking paths by the marina and bay.  We highly recommend this hotel and cannot wait to visit again someday!”

“We have been vacationing at Island Palms for three generations in our family. We are always extremely happy with our stays. So many memories at the pool, bicycle rides, food, and watching boats and birds for hours on the patio. So many years of family fun!”

“Very nice hotel on Shelter Island. The hotel staff was always accommodating. The area is pretty quiet, and you can always see the Navy ships going in and out of the bay. Would definitely stay here again.”
