    Relaxing Vacay

    Parking was very limited to guests and spaces were super small. We had to Uber to secure our spot. The room was very spacious but smelled kinda old and muggy. Overall we enjoyed the stay, loved the view and walk across the street to explore Shelter Island.

    Beautiful marina views but disgusting!

    We used to stay here a lot but haven’t been here for at least 2yrs because they’re always booked and then Covid happened. The place is so run down: same old furniture (stained and falling apart), appliances are old and stained, walls/doors are dirty or falling apart, and we had roaches! It’s such a shame because they have perfect location but the hotel is really nasty.

    Parking Can be an Issue

    We really liked this hotel for the most part. It's nice, clean, and has great amenities. My only beef is the parking situation. The parking lot is very skinny, plus they don't have enough parking spots for their number of rooms. On Saturday night, we arrived back to the hotel a bit after 10:00 pm, and there wasn't any parking available. The desk clerk removed that night's parking charge, because we had to park across the street. Nothing bad happened to our car, but I didn't like having to park elsewhere.

    Nice place with great view!

    It was clean. We didn't have room service but when we needed something, they delivered. I thought there was a bit of a musty smell in the hallway and room. That's my only issue. The location on the marina was beautiful and the pool/spa were very nice!
