Where do I start? The room was incredibly tiny, outdated, and poorly furnished (had to ask for a reading lamp for one side of the bed that lacked a night-table) and sloppily cleaned for the 8 days we were there. We were treated to a microwaved dessert on our first night at the restaurant, that made the peach strudel leathery... More

I had an enjoyable overnight retreat here. Every single staff member was pleasant and friendly. This hotel is old and not like Marriotts and Holiday Inns. But that's part of its appeal! There are no elevators, so you get to climb original staircases. You can see how the building has been updated to adhere to code yet holds true to... More

Very disappointed. The Pridwin looked everything like the perfect American dream I was longing for this Summer. At least in the pictures on the web. Reviews were very mixed, but judging from their site, I was taken. I imagined old school elegance, balmy romantic nights with the sound of crickets, long lunches on the wooden porch and that class of... More

Beautiful location near sunset beach where there is beautiful beach accessibility. Rooms are dated and can use a major renovation especially the bathrooms pretty scary . They try to make up for it with a complimentary breakfast in the morning. Shelter island is beautiful. Just be prepared for rooms.

For $350 a night and that wad the cheap room not even a weekend. No mini fridge and had musty mildew odor.Rooms need updating. The bbq on Wed was ok at best. Waited on line half hour for food with 2 small children as locals or people not from hotel and pulling up in boats cut the line. Not fun!... More

My fiancé and I arrived at the hotel a few hours early, the staff was friendly and our room was ready and clean for check in. The beach was private and well kept by the staff with cushioned lounge chairs and umbrellas. The pool area was even more pleasing. It was super private nestled by trees yet we could still... More

This is my second stay at the Pridwin and I loved it for all the same reasons I loved it the first time. Let's get this out of the way the Pridwin is not a luxury hotel, it doesn't obsess about thread count for linens or expect it's staff to be obsequious lap dogs, it is a Shelter Island institution...

Stayed in one of their cabins last week with my wife and my 19 year old son. Cabin wasn't ready for nearly two hours past check-in time. The exterior of the cottage was in need of stain/paint with peeling occurring in multiple places. The screen door to a wooden deck had a broken lock relying solely on a stick meant... More

My husband surprised me with a quick getaway anniversary celebration at the Pridwin. From the moment we arrived, the staff could not be any more friendly and hospitable. It may seem small, but I really loved the different water stations throughout the hotel offering pear and apple infused water, lemon infused water etc. It was truly refreshing after getting lost...
