Very bad experience, bad service, long wait for cold & uncooked food :-( Manager offered free drinks, when they clearly saw my meal was undercooked & cold on arrival...... But I had to pay for something I didn't eat :-(

Spent two nights at the Shelter Harbor Inn and could not have been happier with our choice of many for the wedding we were attending. The rooms are all very charming, clean with AC and TV, although we never used either one. They have Tennis courts and outdoor seating on the lawns which is good for relaxing and reading a... More

It was perfect for four women on an annual New England trip. We each had a reasonably priced room in the barn. The rooms were clean, cool, quiet, and comfortable. (the bed was a little too firm for me, but I adjusted). Because no one else was there at the time we had full use of the deck on the... More

A group of fourteen close friends were looking for a seaside place to stay for a few days after a college reunion. We wanted someplace with a common area we could gather at the end of the day, nice rooms, and on or near the ocean. We looked at renting houses, but for our group, we couldn't find anything near...

We stayed in room 7 which had a four poster bed, a fireplace and a terrace. The tv was anciet but everything else was nice. maybe could... More

The inn appears to have experienced its share of wear and tear over the years. Rooms are dated but comfortable. Bathroom could use some freshening up but they have a playset which was the perfect hang out spot for our toddler. Breakfast was lovely as was the waitstaff. Woman (who may have been the proprietor?) upon check out was absolutely... More

We have eaten at the Shelter Harbor Inn many times over the last 30 years, but have never stayed there. And every time we ate there it has been very good to excellent. This year I surprised my wife and told her to take off from work on Friday as we would be spending Valentine's Day at a special place.... More

We have come to the Shelter inn between 5 and 10 times over the last 8 years since we have family living around Westerly. The last 2 visits in 2013 have been disappointing: although room prices have increased over time, amenities and appearance of the room have not changed. Bathrooms look 30+ years old and in winter, heating is not... More

If you are looking for something one step above sleeping in your car, this is the place for you! The staff was barely helpful and with no grasp of hospitality. Our first night there the fire alarm went off at around 3AM. There was no staff to be found and when we dialed the "emergency number" it took that person... More
