Do Not Stay Here

Posted Apr 29, 2017
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Everything
Location: Shelter Island is cool, but do not stay here.
This place is barely worth a 1 star rating. It's old and in disrepair. We walked in the room and walked right back out. We couldn't get a refund but still couldn't stand to stay here. We ate the cost and moved to a different hotel. It may have once been charming, but that was a loooooong time ago.

San Diego Stay Over

Posted Apr 26, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Standard room will put you on the street side of the hotel. The TV worked except the remote. In general nice but needs to be updated.
Location: You are in the middle of the marina's and support facilities. Across from the bay
Used this hotel as a stay over between a cruise and flight out of town. Nice location and close to airport.

Great Location

Posted Apr 23, 2017
Pros: Staff was always friendly and helpful during our stay. Easy drive to San Diego and surrounding area. Delicious food at the restaurant.
Location: Quick access from the airport. Enjoyed walking along the bay. Walking to nearby restaurants, dinning on the pier at Fathom Bistro.
Enjoyed our view from the balcony of the bay and San Diego. Staff was always friendly and helpful during our 2nd time staying here. Planning our return trip for next year.

Wonderful diner and bar, bad hotel.

Posted Apr 22, 2017
Pros: Staff, bar/diner.
Cons: Beds.
Location: Marina-adjacent, a very short ride from Seaworld.
The staff, both hotel and diner, were excellent. The restaurant/bar was top notch in quality. I only have two complaints, a stain on the carpet and a bed as tough as plyboard, and that second one's a deal breaker for me. I did not sleep well at all and I woke up sore both nights I was there.

Posted Apr 9, 2017
Pros: Mostly very friendly & helpful staff.
Cons: Offer plywood sheets to the visitors for whom the way-too-soft mattresses are way too soft.
Location: There are lots of boats to look at, but apparently, no hardware stores from which to buy plywood for firming up the way too soft beds.
We paid almost 800 for 3 nights, on Expedia. I'm not a frequent traveler to San Diego, so I don't know what that amount ought to get me, in that area. What I DID get was a bed that was far softer than my bed at home; which gave me a very poor night's sleep on night #1 and a significant amount of body ache's and pain. My wife also slept poorly, due to the softness of the mattress. I spoke with Eric, at the front desk, asking whether the hotel might have any rooms with firmer beds. He didn't know. Given my lack of interest in another poor night's sleep, I asked Eric about checking pout early so that we could find a hotel where we might get a firmer bed. Eric said "I don't have the authority to let you check out early, with a refund. You DID book the room via Expedia....", as if to say "WE didn't want to book the room through a re-seller! YOU forced us to do so and now you're STUCK with your decision!" I ended up taking the sofa cushions and the 2 arm chair cushions, laying them out on the floor, and throwing a couple of king-sized sheets on them. I slept a lot better on the floor, on night #2 and #3. The room smelled stale and musty, like a closet at Grandma's house. There aren't any ice machines, so you have to get ice from the restaurant, or bar tender, or the desk staff. When they have time. The staff that I dealt with were between fair, and excellent. Aside from the horrible sleep due to the soft bed, it's was a 3.5-star out of 5. Given the horrible bed, it was a 2.5

Great place to stay

Posted Apr 9, 2017
Pros: Convenience, views, room
Cons: They were a little short staffed when we ate dinner there.
Location: Shelter island
We had a marina view and it was just beautiful. We had traveled from East coast to West coast, and this was the 6th hotel in a week, and we did not want to leave this one. It was awesome. The room was great and the location was awesome. Everything was very convenient. I am looking forward to coming back for another stay.
