Every time we stay at this particular Holiday Inn Express we have a very good experience. But this time it got better. When we arrived for an overnight, we were given the wrong room. Within a half hour this was corrected while we stayed in the first room waiting for the other to be cleaned and prepared. We were given... More

We were hosting a wedding with mostly out of town guests who stayed at this hotel.

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.

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.
