We stayed in a room on the top floor facing the marina. The room was very quiet with a lovely view over the large marina out the rear of the hotel. Our room was a very good size, had heaps of natural light (entire outside of room was glazed), and also had good lighting at night. The room did have the dreaded adjoining room door, but we never hard anyone next door via this door. The hotel room was however somewhat dated, this in no way affected the comfort of our stay. The bedding and some of the linen was well worn. The staff at the hotel were always extremely friendly. The hotel has two attached food areas, the bar and restaurant. Breakfast was held between both spaces and the free breakfast used non disposable plates, had table service and a limited but changing selection of hot food. The breakfast selection was not as great as some we have been to, but not a problem to get a good feed. In the evenings the hotel has a happy hour between (if my memory serves me correctly) 17:00 and 19:00 when there are free bar snacks some discounted drinks and very reasonably priced meals. The normal restaurant also has very reasonably priced meals helped by being able to ask for a 20% discount voucher from reception every time you go to the restaurant. The only other restaurants within walking distance of the hotel are attached to hotels and are few in number. The hotel has plenty of parking both outside the hotel and covered underground parking. The hotel is in a good location, but nothing is really within walking distance. The walk around the ocean side Shelter Island is very pleasant. There was a reasonable amount of air traffic from the nearby Navy base, but aircraft seemed to rarely pass over the marine side of the hotel.
