We enjoyed our four night stay with our grandchildren in tow; the location was wonderful, our balcony overlooked the marina and we walked out the door to the beach. In addition, the free buffet breakfast was excellent and the pool was warm. The fire works display was stunning and the down home beach atmosphere was memorable. This location was an...

Great trip! This was my first time staying at the Bay Club but I knew the area was nice. I was attending a conference and waited till last minute to book a hotel. Prices were very reasonable compared to surrounding hotels. Breakfast was included with each nights stay which is always a nice bonus. The pool area was great -...

Before we made our reservation, I checked on reviews online. They were kind of mixed, some good, some so so. We planned a family weekend get away with our adult children; 2 rooms. The location was excellent; peaceful, quiet, near shopping, etc. The staff was exceptionally accommodating and we were shocked that the free breakfast was actually a full course...

We stayed at the Bay Club Hotel & Marina on the final two nights of our week-long excursion to southern California and it was a great way to end our vacation. We were traveling with our 11-year old son so we booked a double-queen. It was the first floor on the marina side and very spacious, impeccably clean and the...

We have been going to the Bay Club twice a year for over 20 years. We love the location on Shelter Island. There is a parking charge but it is not exorbitant like downtown. You do get breakfast with your room: scrambled eggs, potatoes (not that great), a meat, breads, fruit and I believe cereal. It is not as great...

We enjoyed our stay at the Bay Club Hotel. Comfortable room and a very tasty breakfast is included with your room. Beautiful views of the bay but heads up that you can sometimes hear very loud jets taking off from the naval station across the bay.

First time visit to the hotel and city. Surprise and not happy with extra charge for Car Park $5 per day, not mention in any documents. Breakfast is great, but coffee taste terrible. Hotel location is good, found a Thai food restaurant nearby.
