We stayed in a recently renovated room, so it was very clean and comfortable. The room still smelled of paint and varnish, but I don't think there's a way to avoid that with new materials. The hotel staff is really excellent, they're very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. I can't compliment... More

This hotel is both naughty (not in a good/sexy way) and nice. Rooms are newly and very nicely renovated. I would say rooms are 4-5 stars. Service is more like motel service and amenities are nonexistence. Even for renovation - it looks nice on the surface, but you can tell that they went cheap on the renovation (i.g. linoleum marble...

I think we might have been the first guests to stay in the room since the renovation. We could still smell the paint, but just faintly and that did not impair our experience at all. The room was spacious and the furnishings lovely. The king size bed was super comfy and the sheets were exquisite. The bathroom was gorgeous but... More

This hotel has been under renovation since March of 2014.They have did a wonderful job on the rooms. The restaurant is great. It's a great place to stay when in Long Island. It's across the street from the LIRR. I give this place 4 1/2 stars.

Pros The rooms were comfortable and spacious and the front desk staff was very attentive. They were able to get our entire party on the same floor.
