The good - the location is beautiful and the village is quaint. The beds were comfortable, the shower was good (except the floor - that is under poor) and most of the staff was friendly. Our room was clean - minus the stains and yucky shower floor - no mold thankfully! We consider ourselves lucky on the mold concern, many... More

Very pleased with the recent Sweet 16 we had at Dandord's. From planning, to organizing and execution of the evening everything went very smooth. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. I was pleased to see I could enjoy the event without needing to make sure the nights festivities went on without a problem. Maitre D Vicki was hands on at... More

We just had our daughters sweet 16 celebration upstairs in the Brookhaven room at Danfords. From the initial visit, Lynn Fisk was very warm, friendly, helpful and professional. It was a pleasure working with her. Calls were returned, and emails were followed up promptly. She made great suggestions and was a wonderful information source. The day prior to the party,... More

Danford's is known for its location, and certainly the location is optimum. However it is NOT a luxury hotel. If staying in Port Jefferson, this would be my recommendation, since there is no place else with the marina location. Do not set your standards too high. The Hotel is not paying attention to any detail. Our room was mostly clean,... More

This is a great place to stay or go to the lounge and have cocktails and apps. It is right on the water and next to the ferry. cute little town to walk around in and shop and then go back to the lounge for the special price drinks and apps.

For a property that claims to have "80 luxury rooms", all I can say is that is as far from the truth as it gets! Don't get me wrong, the place has character and charm but the term "luxury" is way overstated. The facility and room needs a LOT of work, not more bandaids. I almost fell through my deck.... More

I grew up in the area thinking that place was the best around. boy, was i wrong! before we even stepped in the room we could see the disrepair...once we got in the room, the carpet was falling apart, the heater/AC unit was plugged into an outlet that was just dangling from the wall, and the walls looked like they...

constructed in the mid 1980's one may find this is the last time maintenance was performed around the hotel. Although it offers a Nice view and the surrounding area is enjoyable the hotel lacks in staff attitude and regular hotel maintenance.

My daughter and son-in-law were married 7/5/14 and the reception was held here. From the initial appointment with Lynn Fisk, sales manager, through the morning after breakfast, everything was handled with the utmost competence and professionalism. The venue is perfect for a summer wedding and the convenience of having the hotel available for out of town guests made it the... More

My family stayed at Danford's when my son graduated from SUNY Stony Brook last May. The hotel is located in the middle of Port Jefferson, with a beautiful view of the water and marina and within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We had a lovely 2 BR suite, complete with 2 master bedrooms, living room and balcony. While... More
