The pool and jacuzzi were very appreciated by our (small) children. Also, the fact that we had small kids never felt like a problem. In some hotels, you feel like the staff and other guests don't like them making noise etc. but we felt very comfortable at Bay Club. I loved the marina view and would recommend that side of...

For the price, you can't beat it. Especially for the area. There is not a lot of congestion on shelter island and the island is a great place to walk/run. We stayed on the harbor side, but next time we may opt for the marina side. The room service was really good, and extremely reasonable. The pool/hot tub area did...

We've been staying at the Bay Club for nearly 8 years. It is, quite frankly, our favorite get-away hotel in the USA. Wonderful staff, location, food, drinks, etc. Other, bigger hotels could take a lesson from the Bay Club as to how to operate a hotel.

From the first "hello" at check-in to the last "good-bye" when leaving, the staff of the Bay Club Hotel & Marina make you feel welcome; as if you are their only guest. The hotel is conveniently located to all major attractions. The food is excellent. Definitely would stay there again and recommend it to all my friends.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed two nights at the Bay Club. The good: we had a suite that had AMAZING wraparound marina views with two balconies. The hotel was conveniently located and offered a free buffet breakfast and wifi. The bed was okay. The bad: parking is $5 a day; service at the restaurant downstairs, while friendly, was almost...

The hotel is not a fancy place, but was nice and reasonably priced. I really had no problems with the place except one. I booked two rooms online - one with a king bed and the other with two queen beds. When I checked in, I found that I had two rooms with two queen beds. When I protested, they...
