    Very Good 8.0 From 640 reviews

    Poor 2.0
    I won’t go back
    The service was as expected. The room was awful. We were gone most of the day only to come back to a running toilet, no coffee, and the lamp shades were all disheveled. You couldn’t the lamp shades people. For $300 you could at least straighten the lamp shades. I asked for an email receipt which I never got. Oh and my favorite is the charged me for water in the restaurant. It’s not special. It’s water.

    Good 6.0
    The junior suite was nice (Four Star) but the standard rooms are average (two star). I was upgraded to a junior suite the first night of my stay but asked to move to a standard room on the second night. The standard room was average. Noisy heat pump and the floor squeaked.

    Relaxing stay
    The hotel was nice, we have a nice view of the pool area and harbor. The hotel is located on Shelter Island so the private beach is in the harbor. The hotel has plenty of things to do and is just a few minutes drive from Liberty Station

    Good 6.0
    Lacking cleaniness
    Rooms were not a 4-star rating. It was not clean with sand all over the room and the bathroom had an oder which was not pleasant. Bathroom was also very outdated and old tubs and caulking. The self parking and resort fees are $60+ per night.
