The Inn is not maintained as it should be. Staff is not organized and management does not seem overly interested about poor service or poor meals served. If there is a storm which knocks out the power the management lights open candles all over the Inn, frightening to go to bed knowing what is burning downstairs when this occurs. The... More

Shelter Harbor Inn, far down South County in Rhode Island, is a place to get a decent return on your room money. In winter, rates run from $96 to $156. We've stayed there a few times, and find it cozy and comfortable, most recently on New Year's Eve 2014. Thing about Shelter Harbor is it's a bit of a throwback,... More

Delightful inn just off Rte 1 and close to a bunch of Westerly beaches. We had a nice, traditional bedroom where everything (almost) worked. Staff was friendly, courteous and very helpful - we were able to store our bikes in the maintenance shed out of the rain and they gave us good local information on beaches, ferries, restaurants, etc. Warning:...

The rooms are OK and the atmosphere is decent but the price would lead you to believe it is much much nicer. A lot of these reviews are spot on. We also had a disaster of a check in like many others. It really is incomprehensible that they keep everything in binders that are labelled "Dining Room" and "Log Book"... More

Where do I begin? My sister and I stayed her here this past weekend and it was a nightmare from start to finish. I arrived first and attempted to check in. The woman at the desk couldn't find my reservation (which was made in May). I told her I had booked room 6 because it had 2 beds. She promptly... More

My husband and I stayed here this past Sunday and were overall unimpressed. We had room 23, which we chose because it was said to have nice views and a fireplace. The room smelled heavily of campfire smoke, it appeared that someone had pulled a partially burned log out of the fireplace and stuck it in the log holder for... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Sat and Sun night in August. Nice accommodations and grounds, the highlights of which were the rooftop hottub, beautiful ocean beach access, and delicious food. Our room was very small, but the large private balcony made up for that. The wall to one side was paper thin, had to bang on the... More

We have been vacationing in this area for years but usually rent a house. This year we stayed at the Shelter Harbor Inn and loved it. My family of 5 stayed in rooms 19 and 20 in the barn and it was the perfect set up for us. We had 2 bedrooms and a large common room in between. There... More

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 :-(
