The hotel was nice overall, with a small waterfall/fountain inside the main building. We borrowed bicycles there to look around the island in the morning, and we loved it. Overall it wasn't bad. We also visited the bar at night, and that was also not too bad. The outside sitting is located near the pool, and thus the view from our sitting was good.

Deluxe water view was truly deluxe!

Would recommend Tue, Nov 17, 2015
We stayed for five nights in a room with a bay view. It was beautiful as you could see the San Diego skyline which was all lit up at night. Mornings and Evenings were spent in front of the outdoor fireplace located on the marina. The Blue Wave cafe was also enjoyable with friendly staff and good good. It was easy to get around from Shelter Island and we will most certainly return.

We travel to San Diego a couple of times during the year to visit family. This location is great. Most rooms offer a nice water view of either the harbor or a large marina. There are plenty of nearby restaurants.
