Hotel was nicely decorated
Hotel was nice. We got in about 10:40. We thought we’d get a drink and maybe a snack at the bar. It closed at 10:30pm, so we got neither! The hotel gave us a brochure for a delivery place that advertised 45 minutes, it took twice that. In front of the Bay view was a large crane, a huge pile of dirt, and other construction equipment. I fully understand the food and construction is not Bay hotels fault, but you should know what you’re getting into.

Great Location!
Good value. Nice place in superb location on Shelter Island. Room was neat and clean. It's really a high-end motel (vice hotel) but will stay there again. Staff was nice.

We had a great time there at the hotel the only thing was construction across the street was all night long. Hearing tractors all night was annoying but other than that it was great. I would go there again.

Hotel on the Bay
Checked in Saturday for Mother's Day weekend. I booked 1 week in advance & booked a BAY VIEW ROOM. When I checked in I was given a view of the PARKING LOT. I was told by the manager that this was all that was available since I had just booked 1 day ago & rooms are 1st come 1st serve. This was not true as I booked a week prior. I insisted I be moved the correct room I paid for & I was moved. But it was a whole lot of drama that did NOT need to happen & it wasted my time & unnecessarily upset me. I don't understand why if the room was available, why they didn't just give me the correct one in the 1st place. I would NOT stay here again because this left a very bad impression on me. However, I will give you my honest opinion on the hotel. The room we got, which is the room I booked, the bay view, 2 queens was nice. It was clean. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was large & shower was great. The pool was awesome. Its right on the marina & just seeing all the boats come in & out was awesome. We heard a band playing next door at the concert hall & the ambiance was perfect. I will say the hotel is a bit on the older side & could prob use a bit of a touch up, but overall I would recommend this hotel to others.
