As soon as I drove out of that place (where by the way the bed was unbearably uncomfortable, the room was tiny and there was no one in the office available to talk to if you needed something) I realized that I had left clothing in one of the drawers. I called immediately. I listed the clothing. the room number... More

I appreciate you reaching out with your concerns, Lea. To steal anything from our customers would go completely against our ethical standards. I can assure you we mailed everything we found in that room to the address you gave us and added our address for a return. If you haven't received the package by now, then you're welcome to give...

Even though we only stayed one night as we were catching the ferry to Rhode Island on our way to Boston if we were to come back to Long Island I would not hesitate to stay at the Blue Inn. The room my wife and I stayed in was large and everything you would need to spend a week or... More

Property is neat and well kept, on a main road, with free parking. The newly renovated room, where we stayed, at the back of the property facing the pool, was serene, with a comfortable king bed, quality linens, nice bathroom and kitchenette, and a big screen TV. The only down side is that units on the second floor are reached... More

The Blue Inn was a perfect retreat for our family gathering. We were able to be together in the rooms or out on the lawn or patio. the location was perfect for our plans for wineries and dinner. Thanks so much, we'll be back!

Wonderful inn with clean, fresh rooms. Comfortable bedding and great location. Third stay there and will book again. Located next to lavender farm and has nice size pool. Has grounds to relax and picnic if you choose. Quiet night time sleep even though Inn was full. Also has cooking in room if you choose. Don't hesitated you will be pleased.

We had a great 1 night stay here! Didn't like the pillows or that the bed was right next to the AC window unit. Very very small shower. But great deal for the price! Thank you for the 1 hour later check out too:)

Mary was very helpful and proactive. When there was a problem with our intended room, she called to discuss the resolution prior to our arrival and she made all the necessary adjustments. A slight moisture smell, not uncommon in August weather, that seemed to dissipate after a few minutes. A bit "cozy"-mainly the bathroom being small, but everything else was... More

This time of year , it's almost impossible to find an affordable place to stay out on the Northfork. The Blue is the exception. While nothing fancy, it is clean and well kept. The room was comfortable and the kitchenette was an added bonus. Although we didn't get a chance to use it, the pool on premises is also a... More
