“Great new location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

I have to travel to Melville for work quite often and was always forced to stay at an overpriced, dated and tired Marriott. This time I discover this great property. Staff was fantastic, helpful, pleasant and funny. Rooms were new, clean, quiet and at a great value. Breakfast and bar were great as well. Choose this location for your next say on Long Island!

The Hilton Garden Inn was a wonderful stay. The rooms are very clean and spacious with very comfortable beds, great night sleep.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating, upgrading the feeling of this hotel to a more luxurious class.
The location is central, right off the LIE (495).
The only disappointment was the pool as it looks to be a regular size pool on the website, when in fact it is no bigger than a large tub not at all as it appears in the photos on the hotel website.
We enjoyed our stay and will go back again if we have to spend time in the area. However, beware, if a pool is important for you, stay elsewhere instead.

Dear Middleeasternfoodie,

Thank you for sharing your kind comments in regards to the staff and the overall hotel. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Melville Long Island and we look forward to serving you again in the future.

Our pool is a little on the small side, but the picture on the website is of our pool. The pool accomodates a capacity of 19 people. If you come stay with us again, please ask for myself and I will arrange for you to use one of our sister hotel pools which are larger.

Thanks again and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Peter Rooney,

Due to a shortage of good affordable hotels in pricey Long Island, NY we were happy to have found this newer hotel in a good area near Old Bethpage just off the LIE between Melville and Plainview. Ample parking, nice lobby, very friendly staff. Used the indoor pool and gym. Restaurants and Diners would be within a few miles drive. Only minor problem was some elevator machinery noise during a second stay in a top floor room adjacent to the elevator, but front desk offered to move us to another room.

Room Tip: Avoid some rooms adjacent to elevator

Stayed one night -- front desk people very friendly. Had room available before usual check in time for us. Room was comfortable, with refrigerator, flat screen TV, and good-sized, modern bathroom. Beds had firm mattresses. Air conditioning unit was a little loud, but kept the room temperature comfortable. Breakfast had usual choices, but overall fine.

My wife was really impressed with the fitness center -- state of the art equipment, with TV's built into the tread mills.

I stayed here as a package for a dinner at a local catering hall. I had stayed across the street (literally) at another brand hotel in the past. This hotel was comfy, nicely appointed, roomy, and clean. No issues of noise, damage, uncleanliness were found. Staff were helpful. Bar area and breakfast area small but it did the job. It has a microwave and small fridge in the room so you can use that as needed, that was a benefit. Thanks for the good stay,

I stayed at this HGI property after arriving into JFK (I had a rental car). The hotel is located off of a local street and so you will have access to a wide range of services, from grocery stores to restaurants to car washes, all within a couple of minutes from the hotel. The hotel has plenty of free and convenient parking. It was a very busy afternoon when I checked in and the young guy on the front desk (who was alone) did a great job handling check-ins and guest requests.

The room was standard Hilton Garden Inn in all respects (a positive). The furnishings and common areas were clean and well maintained. My bedding (duvet) was spotless and comfortable, and the bathroom, while a bit on the small size, was very clean and featured a very nice walk-in shower.

The hotel has a small restaurant and tiny bar area, a no-cost business center, and a well equipped fitness center.

Whether as a jumping off point for exploring Long Island, or driving around the boroughs, this hotel offers a very convenient location coupled with good value for the rate paid and a hotel that is almost new (about two years old), clean, comfortable, and provided a wonderful and comfortable night's sleep. I enjoyed my stay and I recommend this hotel to you.

This is a very well maintained hotel with comfortable and clean rooms. Parking is abundant and the hotel is located right off the Long Island Express. Staff was very friendly and seemed anxious to be helpful. We had breakfast each morning in the lobby restaurant and the food was excellent and the service even better. The wait staff was quick to refill coffee and assist with retrieving food. The buffet contained a wide range of choices and there was a cook to order section that made first rate omelets. The gym was nothing special but adequate. I highly recommend this hotel for leisure or business travel.
