We have family in Long Island, and decided we would stay out on our favorite part of the island while also seeing them. Expecting nothing more than a road side motel, we were very surprised to find a quaint, clean place to stay that was near everything and full of families like ours. The room itself is as expected, small,... More

My husband and I visited the North Fork for the first time for a long weekend. We were not familiar with the area and I selected The Blue Inn based on location. I couldn't have picked a better place to stay. I am very particular about hotels in regard to cleanliness and this exceeded my expectations. The rooms and the... More

Went out to Greenport for a wedding, and stayed at The Blue Inn. Right on 25, it seemed as if it was a typical old style road side motel. However, it has been completely renovated, and the rooms were clean and modern. Small kitchenette, small bathroom; but it all worked. Beds were very comfortable. Friendly staff, close enough to Greenport,... More

My wife and I love Long Island and decided to try out this hotel. I called the hotel the day we were checking in to see if they could put anything special in the room for my wife and they were so helpful. They gave me the number to order flowers and had them put in the room before we... More

I recently stayed at the Blue Inn and cannot think of one negative thing to say. My husband and I showed up before check in time and instead of telling us to come back later, the young lady in the office (I believe her name is Alex)- let us check in 3 hours early! I was presently surprised at how... More

We want your stay with us to be as comfortable and as enjoyable as can be, Susan. Some of the things you described, such as the lack of toothbrushes and the size of the shower, are just a matter of what we have to offer. As a rule, we don't provide toothbrushes. Also, we feel we've provided the best possible... More

This was a cute little Motel right next to the Lavender Fields...so of course it smelled lovely. The rooms are small but have a small kitchen which is perfect for a traveling family. We noted there were at least 3 other small children in the hotel when we stayed which made us feel more welcome. The pool was clean and... More

The rooms are clean and very comfortable. but missing some essentials like an iron or reliable hot water in the very tiny shower. The breakfast was really low quality ..Some dry cereal and bagels plus so so coffee. Also the wifi connecion was almost non existant Considering the prices charged, I feel they really need to up their game.
