During our recent 4 day stay the bed was comfortable as were the pillows. The room was rather clean, but the furnishings definitely need updating as does some areas of the hotel. Upon entering the hotel room there was a strong odor of carpet freshener that lingered for a day which didn't fair well for my allergies. For the price... More

I attended my nieces wedding which was at another hotel. I found out that the prices at that hotel were much more expensive so chose your hotel for my one night stay on June 5, 2015. I found the accommodations far exceeded my expectations. What impressed me the most was the warm welcome I received upon check in from Margaret... More

I went into this with no expectations because I did not want to be disappointed. I stayed here for my boyfriend birthday and we stayed on a weekday. For some reason most decent hotels on Long Island at the time were $130/night and up. The hotels I preferred to room in were more in the $200/night range. I say all... More

Not much to say.. .hotel provided everything they promised. The room was clean. This place could just use a little update and a nicer bed. Other than that, I would suggest this mildly priced hotel (for NY anyway) for anyone who needed it.

The hotel was nice enough. It was close to the conference we were attending so this wasn't a vacation experience. It was clean not the very best place we've stayed for a Holiday Inn Express but adequate. This was a time when there were other large groups of people staying so it was really noisy at night with people slamming... More
