We had a great 1 night stay here! Didn't like the pillows or that the bed was right next to the AC window unit. Very very small shower. But great deal for the price! Thank you for the 1 hour later check out too:)

Mary was very helpful and proactive. When there was a problem with our intended room, she called to discuss the resolution prior to our arrival and she made all the necessary adjustments. A slight moisture smell, not uncommon in August weather, that seemed to dissipate after a few minutes. A bit "cozy"-mainly the bathroom being small, but everything else was... More

This time of year , it's almost impossible to find an affordable place to stay out on the Northfork. The Blue is the exception. While nothing fancy, it is clean and well kept. The room was comfortable and the kitchenette was an added bonus. Although we didn't get a chance to use it, the pool on premises is also a... More

A belated shout out to the Blue Inn. My wife and I took a last minute trip out east in July and decided to stay the night. Mary once again met me with a great smile at the front desk, put us up in a Cottage Suite and was more than accommodating. This is absolutely the go to place for... More

We chose this inn based on it's proximity to the ferry (ten minutes) to Conn. for our trip to Rhode Island. We were pleased for many reasons. Mary was helpful when making the reservations as well as offering suggestions for our trip. We chose an upper room which was centrally located. It was a good size, clean, comfortable and quiet....

Had a very nice stay at blue inn. Clean rooms, great beds, nice pillows (not pancakes), somewhat small but recently renovated. They have a decent sized pool and very clean. Friendly staff and you get beach passes for free!!! Will definitely be staying here again

The 2 bedroom was very clean . We could have asked for 1 more pillow but each queen bed had 4 and the sleep sofa only 1. We had plenty of room in the frig for our leftovers but only 2 chairs in the kitchenette. The air conditioner wasn't working correctly on our second day but while we went to... More

I choose this place based on reviews, but the reviews didn't give me the right picture. We stay on the main building in a super nice room for two, with all the appliance for cooking, a bath with a jacuzzi (personal) but a surprise. The hotel is very quite and have a backyard where you can make barbecue. Is near... More

The Blue Inn was perfect for our quick stop on the North Fork. We stayed one night, mid-week.....the room was perfect, we had an end room near the stairs but were never bothered by outside noise. The unit was clean and we even went in the pool for a bit which was a nice break from the summer heat. It's... More
