When we first arrived I saw all this construction and got nervous that this stay would be noisy. But thankfully I was wrong. It appeared they are just updating the main lobby building. Our room was in the Casa Del Mar facing the Marina. I highly recommend that building. The staff was super helpful and friendly, great location on shelter... More

My husband and I booked this the morning of our stay. We had a suite that faced the street-- it was a little noisy with the balcony door open (the helicopters were flying in and out of the naval base a lot which added to the noise factor) but once we closed it, it became very quiet. It smelled a... More

We really enjoyed our stay on Shelter Island! We were delighted to be upgraded to a suite and had lovely views over the city. The room was spacious and the bed was really comfortable. The pool area is nice and we had a few drinks in the bar. There was building work going on which we we weren't aware of... More

As we walked to the on-site restaurant for breakfast, my wife turned to me and said, "I can't imagine anything nicer than this. It is truly a slice of heaven." She did not exaggerate. We were fortunate to have a suite on the marina side of the hotel. Our view was spectacular. As was our room. The bed is extremely... More

Stayed here for my Honeymoon and was delighted by the quality and luxurious feel of this hotel. The water view is both in front and behind the hotel, so great views no matter where your room is. The restaurant overlooks the marina. It's one of the best Best Western's we've stayed in. Highly recommended.

Everything about this hotel was just great...even though they were in the midst of major reproofing and remodeling. I almost hate to share this so we could keep the secret to ourselves. The restaurant is also great and was as good as any place we could have gone.

One night getaway that was comfortable and in a great location. Kyle at the front desk helped us set up our accommodations and was very friendly and personable- we appreciated his help a lot! Tasha checked us in and was also very friendly and helpful. Stayed in a Jr Suite which was beautiful, even though we got a little lost... More

Stayed one night at the Island Palms Resort on Shelter Island to meet up with relatives passing through. We had a King bed suite that included a living area with couch, easy chair, coffee table, desk, small refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. Bed was VERY comfy, lots of pillows for propping up on to read. We had a balcony overlooking... More

1st night we checked in late at night and they gave us a smallest room in their property. We took it because we all tired and just want a shower and go to bed. In the next morning, we went to the front desk to complaint how small the room was for 3 people, and they ungraded us to a... More
