After reading the TripAdvisor reviews of The Reeds at Shelter Haven, my expectations were low. However, after our recent visit I feel inclined to express just how happy I was with our experience. We pulled up to the valet and were warmly greeted by three very friendly employees. One immediately began unpacking our bags while the other got us checked in within a minute. We were taken directly up to our room which was clean, modern and well appointed. While the room was small there was ample room for both my two daughters and myself. A small terrace provided a view of the town. There is a small mini fridge, large screen TV, chest of drawers and closet. As far as service goes I don’t have one complaint. I called down for room service and it was delivered in under 30 minutes. We needed an extra set of toiletries and within 10 minutes a smiling employee delivered a bag full of extras. The valet ran smoothly when we needed our car. Housekeeping came daily and turndown service came with dessert in a sweet little box. Plenty of towels and pillows were provided. We came for the location and the beach. The location simply can’t be beat. Coffee Talk (a necessity) and endless restaurants and shops are all within a half minutes’ walk. A cute movie theater is around the corner. The beach is a five minute walk away but the hotel shuttle runs frequently. Once we arrived at the beach full service was waiting for us - chairs, umbrellas, towels, ice cream, iced water bottles all served with great attitudes and smiles. Our breakfast at Water Star Grille provided a beautiful view. Our omelettes and waffles were served in a timely manner and delicious. We will definitely return to the Reeds but perhaps to a larger room. As far as convenience goes the Reeds has it all!

Nice property, fun staff, great food, wonderful event venue. But the hotel management (Justin) at their discretion will apply charges to your credit card! We had a block of rooms almost the entire hotel! Our card was charged $380 for noise even though we were next to the elevator shaft and our neighbors were are friends, one couple was charged $200 for smoking on the balcony - They don't smoke! Another found a pill on their floor googled it was for herpes! Safe to say the cleaning staff smokes on your balcony when they should be vacuuming a prior guest dropped medication off your carpet! When approached Justin/Jason Asst. manager treats you like your a one and done as if your not ever coming back so wtf I'll raise my revenue with outlandish penalties! If you have a wedding here, it will be wonderful, if you eat here the food will be great, the staff is cool but the Hotel management are D-Bags. Stay elsewhere and drink, eat and party here! Were still fighting with visa to get our $380 back! Our family goes there weekly by car and by boat, that week alone our family's combined spending at Reeds was over $40,000 with our sons wedding! We will be trying some new places like Icona, Windrift, and the Inlet.

Hi B_Man-- we are sorry to learn of your disappointments, although, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed our staff, food and our property for your family’s wedding event venue. Providing the very best for our wedding couple’s and their guests is one of the main reasons that we are one of the most successful wedding venues in the area. At the same time, we must ensure that our non-wedding guests are finding their experience just as enjoyable. In trying to please both, we regret to learn that we fell short in your experience. We are investigating your concerns with our management and will provide ongoing training for situations like these. We love hearing you are loyal guests to The Reeds, and we hope to have the opportunities to restore your confidence the next time we see you.

For the high prices, we expected much more. Although the physical plant is lovely and the room itself was well appointed, it was not ready at check in time and no one came to clean it the next day until we were showering to go to dinner. Our room Keurig malfunctioned and we were promised a new one but none came until we complained again 8 hours later. The Sax restaurant kept us waiting at the door while a hostess tried to bus dishes and clean the table with a hand wipe.( The dining room was almost empty) When a server finally took a drink order we waited without while server chatted with another diner, we left. (We had fabulous dinners AND service at other restaurants in town.) The hot tub was out of order and the "plunge pool" had a dirt ring and was full of brown grit on the bottom. The beach was beautiful until we were told on day one that the hotel was closing the beach due to storm warning. On day 2 they took our umbrella away due to wind. As a skin cancer survivor that meant we had to leave. No one asked us if we enjoyed our stay -just that they would email a receipt! Our stay here left a lot to be desired and we would not return here.

We stayed in the Skye Suite and were not disappointed. the Bedroom has its own private balcony and an en suite bathroom. The tub is huge and very deep, the shower has multiple jets and 2 large sink areas with plenty of space. We used pullout bed by the sink which was okay. There is a full kitchen nicer than most homes which we didn't stay long enough to use (3). There is a beautiful dining table for 8 if wanted to hold catered dinner party with another deck overlooking bay. The on site restaurant was good, but we weren't used to the sharing so at first prices look high until they explained large portions for group to share. We loved going to beach and having umbrella and chairs set up + towels and water for us with no lugging. There is a beach shuttle, but we walked everyday only couple of blocks. We also used the kayaks which was fun. I definitely recommend The Reeds!

Just spend 2 nights in a bay view deluxe suite at the Reeds! We were greeted by an awesome valet who was so informative, helpful, and friendly! When we entered our suite, Diane the concierge left us a note and a cheese and fruit platter to kick off our special get away! The suite was beautiful, refrigerator, wine glasses, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, and utensils were all provided. The beds were super comfortable and nightly turn down service for the sofa bed was greatly appreciated. The outdoor restaurant was a great place to drink and eat! Cosmos and espresso martinis were outstanding! Luckily, we were able to use the beach service, due to great weather, loved the chairs and umbrella set up! Every employee was super friendly and helpful! The town is beautiful, so many awesome stores and restaurants! Highly recommended!
