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

We stayed at the last room, suite 101 because we had our dogs with us. The place was full, so we could hear every time someone walked in the room above ours, as well as the staff talking next doors at 7 am (both days), our neighbors' babies crying, dogs barking, and so on. Do I need to mention I... More

I'm so sorry you weren't able to get a good night's sleep while you were here. It's completely understandable why you were frustrated about this. I appreciate the feedback and will look into it. As for the restaurant, our menu does have some vegetarian-friendly options including salads and build-your-own pasta dishes. Again, I appreciate your feedback, and hope you'd consider... More

Made a last minute trip to the North Fork of Long Island and stayed at The Blue Inn. The town of East Marion is off the beaten path, but is within close enough proximity to Greenport which is a great waterfront village with many restaurants and shops. It was clean, comfortable and had a small kitchenette which is always a... More

We booked a room at the Blue Inn looking for an affordable place to sleep for the night before taking an early morning ferry to Connecticut.
