“A Gem worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

This "gem" is very much worth a stay (whether one day, several, or even a week)! The rooms are pleasant and clean; the staff so genuinely accommodating, friendly, and helpful, and the Continental breakfast is more than substantially adequate. We found it a very comfortable experience. Haven't had such a good night's sleep in years and I am sure that's because of their comfortable beds!

The size of the establishment allows for a feel of "Family" and complete relaxation when you return to your room after your day's outing. It was so easy to be drawn back to the small dining area for a nice cup of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa and then remaining there to finish leisurely rather than hurrying back to one's room.

We will be back to review again. In the meantime, Thank You Donald, Jeff and everyone else that has welcomed us so warmly and made our stay there A-One Plus!

We arrived from the Napa Valley California to visit our families in the Huntington
Long Island area for Christmas 2013. The Whitman Motor Lodge was recommended by a family member. This Motor Lodge has very clean rooms with nice décor with a cottage like feel....My son really like it as well. Since we are from the Bay Area, we are 49er fans and watched the SF 49er vs Ravens game played at Candlestick in SF on wide screen television.
Service and house staff is efficient and friendly! Ask for Donald! Great Guy upbeat and friendly! John R. Chiappolini, Napa Valley California

Room Tip: If cleanliness is important and ease to central locations on Long Island...

First, let me begin by thanking the staff for returning my camera, that I had left behind in the room. When I called to inquire whether my camera was there, I was informed that it was sent yesterday! It arrived, postage paid and contents insured. I am so appreciative of the honesty of the cleaning staff, and the extra care the manager took, to send it back to me, even before I called to inquire.
As other reviews have mentioned, the room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The bed was especially comfortable. I am grateful that this hotel does not tolerate smoking in any of its rooms, as I am extremely sensitive to the smell of even old cigarette smoke.
I would definitely stay at the Whitman Motor Lodge again, and it was a great option over the Thanksgiving Holiday, when visiting relatives while keeping privacy and avoiding overcrowding.

We recently traveled to Huntington (Long Island) to attend funeral services for a dear friend.
The Whitman Motor Lodge on E. Jericho Turnpike provided us with very comfortable accomodations. We & 2 other parties very impressed with the attentiveness of the manager, Donald & his staff. The beds were by far the best we have ever slept in at a hotel.
Thank you for making a tough trip a little easier. Would not hesitate to stay there again if necessary

We were in Huntington for a funeral and the quality of a motel was not our first priority. However, we were very pleased with the cleanliness, comfort and quiet of this conveniently located, modest place. The room was spotless, updated and attractive, and the staff we dealt with was friendly and considerate. Breakfast provided good options and the little dining area was clean and well-stocked. We would stay here again and would recommend it as well.

This was my second time staying with these nice folks and again, wasn't disappointed.
Spotless and comfortable, safe, convenient, pretty quiet, too.
Betty, Anthony, and the team do their best to make your stay here relaxing and pleasant.
Would recommend this Motor Lodge 100%.

Room Tip: No pool or fitness center; probably wouldn't have used them anyway. Ask for a room AWAY from the...

I was torn between average and very good. If you had 3.5 circles I would have gone with it. Rooms clean and comfy. Pretty quiet in the back of property. Free breakfast adequate but nothing special. Need another trash can in bedroom (only one in bathroom). Housekeeping did not clean tub of hair from previous day. Flat screen TV was great but need ESPN (at least for me).
