Very friendly and helpful front desk staff! Our room was clean, our bed was comfortable, and our complimentary breakfast was fresh and delicious. We will definitely book this very hotel when in the area again.

We stayed at Stony Brook after family BBQ ended at 9pm in the area. We requested three rooms. Late night arrival made no difference ,friendly greeting from front desk. He was patient and made us all quickly comfortable .The pool opens 530a so we were able to get a swim before 12p checkout. The young lady at breakfast didn't know... More

We like grab a couple of hours or a weekend away from our 4 kids whenever we can. We usually will take a quick ride to Ramada in Ronkonkoma which has oversize jacuzzis and king rooms. We were on another part of Long Island and thought we'd do an impromptu overnight. The list is never long when looking for a... More

We stayed at Stony Brook to attend a family wedding in the area. On our arrival we were greeted by a very personable front desk clerk who speeded us through check in.

I will absolutely stay again. The shuttle driver was prompt and very friendly. The hotel is immaculately clean and has a lot of great amenities. Front desk staff was very nice and helpful with local recommendations. The breakfast variety was more than I could've asked for. The stay was definitely worth the money.

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 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
