Our room was a nice size with a very comfortable bed , good size bathroom and a fridge. The entire Inn was spotless and the continental...

This was at least the third time my wife and I had stayed at this inn in the past dozen years. (The two previous times were when the property had different names and owners.) During the booking process, the manager noted that the trip fell between a wedding anniversary and my birthday. She promptly offered a free upgrade to a...

Shelter Island is a truly beautiful spot and having just visited out of season, I would recommend coming here when is it quiet and tranquil, without the hoards of visitors. Shelter Island House is very well located, being near to Sunset beach and a short walk to Shelter Island Heights. Overall, our stay in the hotel was OK, although for...

At prices like these, it's fair to expect exceptional service, surroundings and experience. The Shelter Island Inn is fine, but "Hampton Suites fine". Although at Hampton Suites, the service is similar, the bathrooms are larger and more functional, and the breakfasts are better--at one-third the price. And this was off-season. The Shelter Island Inn is pleasant enough, but, in a...

We stayed for three nights at the hotel and we had a lovely, relaxing time. The grounds are beautiful and the location is right near the sunset beach. On the whole the staff were very nice and helpful. Phillip was lovely, as was the hotel manageress who helped us with a car rental issue. Breakfast was really nice and plentiful....

Beautiful grounds, beautiful room with the exception of a shower that was smaller than you'd find on a cruise ship, nice continental breakfast. The staff was fine except for one woman who could not have been less friendly or less helpful. Not sure why/how management keeps her employed because I wouldn't. Bikes and helmets, towels/chairs/umbrellas all available. Keep in mind...

Second time staying at this wonderful Shelter Island getaway. Wonderful staff, very nice rooms, beautiful outdoor deck area. Walking distance to Sunset Beach and close to all the amenities of the island. Restaurant is top notch and the light complimentary continental breakfast is wonderful. Highly recommend SIH!
