Stayed there twice and loved it. We enjoy the marina view the best, although they upgrades once to a suite with bay view was pretty nice also. The breakfast and coffee was excellent..

We were not familiar with Bay Club, but chanced the booking, since there was a four night for the price of three, promo. Knew we wanted to be in this area. Wow, what a surprise, a gem of a property. The staff is topnotch, from check-in, Amanda, to Ishmael (nicknamed ISH) at the included breakfast buffet. Housekeeping was among the... More

The breakfast is included and has a good selection. Not just your box of cereal and banana! Rooms have enough space and the refrigerator is a bonus. No complaints and plenty of thanks. The only downside is do not check out early as there is a additional fee so reserve the bare minimum and then hope you can extend your... More

I am amazed at the reviews for this hotel. We stayed here this spring for 6 nights. The price was good, staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location is great. Now for the bad. We thought the hotel was old and had a funny smell throughout. The pillows were so thick that we all woke up with sore... More

The Bay Club hotel is situated on Shelter Island next to a Marina. The view was so nice, and it's proximity to a beach and charming walkway was quite pleasant. The room we stayed at was spacious and smartly appointed. The staff were personable and the food was good. Given it's location, the cost of the stay was very inexpensive.... More

We needed a place to stay near the airport and chose Bay Club Hotel because of its proximity and complimentary shuttle service. We were not disappointed - everything was excellent! The service was exceptional and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
