Very good location, convenient for the airport with useful shuttle available pretty much on demand. Reception is impressive with helpful and friendly staff. My room in the older part was functional but dated - in need of modernisation. However it was a good size and everything worked. The on-site restaurants are fine and there's a few more just across the road on Shelter Island.

Great location. Amazing staff. The waiter in the cafe accommodated my need for just the liquid from the soup due to a liquid diet I was on for surgery the next day. When I went to leave they gave it to me on the house. There are several nicely rated restaurants across the street on the bay. And if you want to Uber to La Jolla (highly recommend to see the sea lions) it’s about $20.

The room smells of moldy carpet, old cigarette smoke, and mice. Even with the balcony door wide open, the room is triggering my asthma. The carpet and furniture have obviously been here since the 1950's and I wonder if the rug has been washed since the 1950's? It's kind of a bait and switch with a nice new hotel in front and a crappy moldy old two-star 1950's motel in the back. No amount of fancy bedding can fix the stench. They need to replace the rugs. I honestly don't know how renting these mold-filled rooms can even be legal. Someone should alert the health department. You pay more because you want to avoid these crappy old moldy hotel rooms. Got it with Hotwire. Hotwire is real hit or miss.
