Visiting home to attend a funeral. I booked this room because it is where other family members were staying.
It is a nice hotel. Lobby is well decorated and welcoming. Room was fairly small, but clean and well appointed. Had a hard time finding outlets near beds or chairs to plug in my laptop but that's pretty standard. There is a lamp on the desk with multiple outlets so it seems they have tried to add plugs for phones etc.. Linens were clean and smelled fresh. Bed was quite comfortable.
When I arrived I let them know the sink was broken -- and after waiting a while I ended up just fixing it myself because it wouldnt drain and I needed to use it. As I was lying on my back taking the drain apart (and getting muck on my coat), I thought to myself "why the hell are you fixing this sink.. you're the guest". Oh well. Also, I booked a king, and got 2 doubles. Not a huge deal, but 2 doubles doesnt leave any room for a sitting area (there was 1 chair tucked tightly in the corner).
Breakfast was decent. The bacon was cooked into a big brick and dry as potato chips, but the little omlettes were actually very good. I at about 4 of them... and its complimentarty so I cant really complain.
Overall, its not the Ritz, but its a nice and clean hotel with friendly service. And for $150 its just ok and the value. Great place for travellers or folks visiting their kids at Stonybrook U.
