I stayed here while on Shelter Island for a wedding. The hotel is stylish, modern, and very well manicured. And the rooms are quite nice, albeit small. The location is wonderful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. That said, it did feel a little overpriced for what you get, likely the result of the island pricing.
I came for a weekend getaway from NYC and the hotel was wonderful and exceeded my expectations. I was fortunate enough to come over the weekend of their 3rd annual Christmas tree lighting and it was such a wonderful festive event. Amazing service and great accommodations. Highly recommend for anyone staying on shelter island!! Will definitely return, I can’t wait!! Don’t miss the tavern restaurant!
The hotel booked us a room on the ground level next to a restaurant that is open until 11pm, public bathroom and main entry doorway 3 feet away from the room. It felt like they didn't use ANY soundproofing -- Terrible noise quality where my partner and I couldn't sleep at all! They gave us a nice room the next day but we were extremely disappointed that they booked us the grand floor room without letting us know about its low qualities or offered any discount when each night was around $700. The windows also faced the back where construction workers are around so felt like there was no privacy. If you are a sensitive person like me, I would check in with them about the details.
Love the big comfortable room and service. Very convenience location. Highly recommended for a gateway weekend ❤️ Large walking 3 people shower space for whole family Plenty outdoor and indoor space to sit No need to stay in hotel rooms I will be back soon Fast service if need staffs
My husband and I spent one night in Shelter Island at this hotel and had a very nice time. Rooms are clean and in good shape - very minimalist so there really are not many tables or places to put your stuff. Bed was a bit noisy and it took a very long time to get hot water but it did work eventually. The restaurant was excellent and I would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I wanted to get away and relax for the long weekend. It was our first time at The Chequit and Shelter Island. We loved it! The Chequit had just finished a renovation and we found our room to be charming, clean, and comfortable. The rain shower was lovely, the bed linens top of the line, and the bed quite comfortable. What attracted us was our ability to bring our 7-year-old Maltese, who due to autoimmune disease cannot be boarded with other dogs. The hotel was very welcoming to her as well and she loved getting a treat when we passed the front desk. The staff were all wonderful and could not have been more accommodating. We ate for two nights in the restaurant as it was so delicious, we decided to stay on the property and relax. The island offers a low-key vibe to recharge your battery . We will be back!…
This is a review of the restaurant, not the hotel. The entire dining area has been completely revamped and it looks awesome. Indoor and outdoor seating were comfortable and great looking. The sushi heavy menu has a great selection and it was hard to narrow it down for ordering. Ultimately we got the martini rock shrimp tempura and a selection of rolls including spicy tuna and shrimp tempura rolls among other things. Everything was amazingly delicious. The tuna tacos and a cheeseburger were also consumed and enjoyed. Our waiter, Nima, was excellent and super friendly. Can’t wait to go back!
The website shows very vibrant pictures of the property and the charm and our love of Shelter Island is what led us to book our stay. Unfortunately, we were only able to stay one of the two nights due to an unavoidable conflict. The general manager, Jason, was nice and helpful upon our arrival and brought my wife some tea as she had a cold (which was very thoughtful). The standard king room was a bit on the smaller side. It did have a fridge, which was in the closet though as well as a stand-up shower in the bathroom. What shocked me a bit was that aside from beach hat a scarf there was no other character to the room (nothing on the walls) - one of our favorite aspects about B&B's or Boutique hotels is the character and charm. Breakfast was delicious, but the layout for seating was a bit more segregated than what i am used to at similar places. In order to eat comfortably we had to eat outside and were saddened that we could not engage in discussion with the other guests - perhaps this changes based on time of year and how booked they are at the time. We also noticed that the porch furniture and mats were a bit worn down - perhaps since it was towards end of season it will get some love in the new year, it looks quite nice in the website photos. Overall, the sterile feel of the room really felt more like a hotel with a breakfast rather than a Boutique B&B.…
My room was perfect, the bed was so comfortable, and the people were incredibly kind. The breakfast tasted great and was plated beautifully. It is a very pretty and quaint island, we went in October. It was a fantastic experience
We stayed here over our wedding weekend and were blown away by the beautifully renovated rooms and friendly service. The breakfast was also delicious - eggs, coffee, freshly baked muffins and chia pudding! (The restaurant had closed for the season - but breakfast is provided.) If you're staying on Shelter Island and want a special treat, definitely check it out.
