This Clarion is a former Holiday Inn, located within minutes is MacArthur Airport (ISP) in Ronkonkoma. I have stayed here overnight to catch an early flight and have stayed after attending a celebration held at the hotel. Each time the room was clean and service was great. I have also attended conferences in their meeting rooms several times throughout the... More

I stayed here overnight before an early morning flight out of Long Island MacArthur. It's the closest hotel to the airport. Very nicely furnished, quiet room. The first room they gave me was on the first floor and very, very, very far away from the lobby. I had two suitcases and a carry-on with me, so before I got to... More

FIRST: Not sure how a Clarion Hotel can be 3 stars? This is not up to the level of a 3 star hotel! It may offer a resort type feel, but it is a rundown old Holiday Inn that lost its franchise name and became a Clarion. BTW, Choice Hotels even rates most Clarion’s below 2 star, and is their... More

To begin with the check in staff is not professionally trained to greet incoming guests. I was not even asked "can I help you". The woman swiped my card and I was on my way. The bathroom is barely large enough for one person. This is a VERY outdated hotel and I would recommend that it be torn down and... More

The hotel is dated, but the people that work there keep me coming back. Bobbie makes you feel like family,which is nice when you travel alot. The food in the bar is surprisingly good. Quesadilla is to die for! Most efficient airport shuttle ever!

Was here for a meeting but did not lodge here, so this review is based on conference space rather than lodging. Conference space was dated but everything that I needed was available and service was excellent. Seating and areas were good and bathrooms were in good condition. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was fine and served on time. I... More

I have been staying at this hotel for about 6 years now. The location is perfect for business reasons in particular. There is no other place in the New England area and beyond that I have found equal to this hotel that I have been. I love the Karaoke on Tuesday nights not having to drive to a venue. Many... More

We got two rooms. One room was toasty warm while the other freezing cold. The window unit doesn't work. The hair dryer doesn't work. None of the TV remotes have much response from the TV, including the one in the gym. I'm giving an average rating because it does have a gym, 24/7 and friendly staff. The restaurant only had... More

It seems like it's several buildings, joined together by jury-rigged prefab causeways. I was there for a convention and the trek from my room in the back to the function rooms was a long one. Not to mention difficult to figure out at first. And no elevator. It's only two floors so this isn't a huge deal, but hauling the... More
