This was our second time staying at the Bay Club Hotel & Marina. We last stayed there in May of 2013. In that time the Bay Club has made several renovations and have made several updates. The updates and renovations are great, but the best thing about this hotel is the friendly staff especially John at the bar. The next... More

We stayed two nights at the Bay Club, in a marina-view, first-floor room. The hotel seems to have been recently renovated, although it seems the original doors were kept, as they were old-looking and beat up. Our room was clean and spacious with "hardwood" floors and a nice balcony. Huge countertop in the bathroom. I booked the hotel in October... More

The Bay Club hotel has clean spacious rooms and very comfortable beds. It is my new favourite place to stay on Shelter Island. It has a beautiful location, close to the airport and they also provide a free airport shuttle. The shuttle also took us for free if we needed a lift within a few miles of the hotel. The... More

We stayed at the Bay Club in early December. My son graduated from Marine Corps boot camp and we wanted a hotel with water views. We sure got it here! One side of the hotel looks out over the marina and the other side has a view of the bay. There is sufficient parking spaces, but they seem pretty small.... More

Dear kbales2, Thank you for your great review from your stay with us, and congratulations on your son's graduation from Marine Corps boot camp! I am sorry that you were disturbed your first night with us, but pleased that the Front Desk handled your room change promptly. I hope that Stephen Seagull was not too obtrusive. I'm glad that you...

This hotel has a beautiful view of the marina. We are on the 2nd floor and love it! This is an older hotel that could use some updating but it is clean. I prefer clean over aesthetics. The room is adequate, I wish there was a better fan in the bathroom because it gets very hot and steamy when you... More

I keep coming back to this hotel as it is a nice clean older hotel that is just the right size. Great location, easy to get anywhere from with great views from most of the rooms. And the prices are usually very competitive.

The location of the hotel is on the Shelter Island peninsula which faces the harbor directly across from downtown. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. Breakfast is included but is nothing special. Scrambled eggs, some type of fried meat and oatmeal. Even the cream for the coffee was in containers. Aside from the restaurant, pool, hot tub,... More

Nice hotel with great views of the bay and marina, nice breakfast and a good location. Housekeeping wasn't done on our room until about 4:00 pm which is inconvenient but otherwise a good experience. Several restaurants nearby.

We love staying at places with breakfast included. It would be nice if the breakfast menu could include some yogurts and a little more variety. The staff was very helpful and friendly, which created a fun relaxed atmosphere.
