This was the 2nd hotel that we had booked prior to leaving home. We had booked the first 2 nights at the Best Western Yacht Harbor and then moved to this hotel for the next 3 nights and then we were going to see where we wanted to stay for the last 4 nights. This hotel is in a fabulous location, the greatest view!! Harbor looking to one side and the marina on the other. We have never seen so many boats in one location.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The first room we had in the Casa Loma building had been recently updated and was beautifully decorated. The dining room and lounge at the hotel hadexcellent food. The lounge was a great place to unwind at the end of a long day of being a tourist.
The hotel is situated on Shelter Island, minutes away from good restaurants and most of the tourist attractions. Il Pomodora is highly recommended for Italian and Miquel's Cucina for Mexican.
After taking a drive up to Oceanside via I5 and driving back along the coast, we decided we would finish off our stay at the same hotel. They were able to accommadate us, we stayed in the original room 2 more nights and then spent the last 2 nights facing the marina. It was a little more private and a little bigger and gave us a great via of the marina out our doorstep.
We would definately return to this hotel!!!
