5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Missed my connection leaving Long Island and wanted an inexpensive place, yet decent to stay. Clarion had the best rate. The lobby is enormous and beautiful. Hotel rooms are sectioned off with key- card entry. You cannot go anywhere without the lovely key- card. Restaurant onsite didn't open until 5pm and I needed a snack at 3:30pm. Trying to cross...

Facility is enormous so be prepared to drive around to your room. Also don't ever forget your key card even if someone is in your room. There are security doors all over that require your room key to get around. If you leave your room without it, you're stuck. Rooms were clean upon checkin. We didn't get the room we... More

We have been staying at this location for the past 10 years on and off. My wife is a Ronkonkoma native. Up until a few years ago it had been a Holliday Inn, an older location but the paintings/murals in the lobby gave it a nice 60s charm that I liked. The rooms were always clean, made up everyday and... More

Unsure about the poor reviews given for this place. It is pretty good for the area in general. Theres an Applebee's across the street. Room was clean, no bad odors. Bed was comfortable. Other than some ignorant loud guests with no consideration for others(typical NY'rs) it was good. I would stay here again.

This hotel was very nice. I came her for a wedding and I loved it. Most of the reviews say it's bad but it's really not. It's breakfast is very nice and the bartender stayed open for us after the wedding until 2am. The drinks were the best and being italian, I loved their penne ala vodka pasta. Rooms were... More

But the door lock was broken, which was hugely inconvienent. Went back to front desk and found a place to park far... More

When I checked in we were given a room that had not been cleaned yet, but the front desk was very helpful, and moved us rooms, then when we went into the new room there was mold all over the walls, and the room smelled like cat pee, and the bathrooms to small, there was no vent to let out... More

We hosted a large party in the hotel's downstairs ballroom and most of our guests booked overnight rooms. Management and staff bent over backwards for us and our guests to be sure the night was a success. Anything we needed, they delivered with a smile. We're already looking forward to hosting our next event here.

I booked this hotel due to weather conditions, I was flying out of Islip Airport the following morning. As soon as I walked into the room I noticed the curtains and the rod they were hanging on were vertical to the floor hanging off the window, I called the front desk and a maintenance man responded with another room key....
