the room and service was good and the place is good which which is just near the ocean. But the wifi is slow and it is working downstairs for the building. So there is a little bit notice.

One night stay

We only stayed for one night, but it was great. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, so we went walking around the marina and the beach across the street. They called me an hour later to tell me it was ready and the front desk remembered me when I walked in. They have a happy hour M-F at the bar with drink and food specials. Gym is pretty decent and they have street level and lower level garage parking.

Fair stay in good location

If you like retro, this is your place. It did have a view of the harbor off the deck. This was an overnight stay to catch an early flight. So it fit the bill in terms of a comfortable room near SAN. The staff seemed genuinely disinterested during check in, and parking was constricted at that time for some repairs to the lot.

Good Decent Hotel

It's a good decent hotel and this is my second stay. It seems to be a Mom and Pop operation. The Dining Room/Bar is hit or miss. Service is erratic with lots of people running around but not a lot of awareness or good service. The breakfast buffet is absolutely terrible. The breakfast is no longer free with your stay which is actually a plus. I would rather nothing than what they offer. They obviously want you eating someplace else. It was extremely bad last year and they are obviously trying to maintain this standard.

San Diego fun

The hotel was in a good location, not far from the airport but also on the bay. Enjoyed seeing the lights of the marina.

Lovely Shelter Island Marina

The hotel was quite nice. It had beautiful views of the bay and the marina. The counter staff was always available and helpful.I was able to get a full complementary breakfast (value approximately $14.00) every morning as part of the package I reserved last September. However, that benefit is no longer available. A few little problems (shower gel, lotion, shampoo not always replaced, Earl Grey tea bags replaced with Chamomile) but nothing that couldn't be resolved. It cost $5.00 a night to park, which I thought was very reasonable, compared to other parking rates I've paid in cities like New York, Boston and San Francisco, for example.

Awesome couples trip

Good great. They honored our breakfast coupon which was booked prior to their no breakfast. All shuttle and front desk people were superb for our 3 day stay. Marina view was gorgeous and could walk every day along the bay. They shuttle to other restaurants for free if on shelter island
