Just finishing up a great weekend at The Soundview. The room was sparkling clean, all the staff are wearing masks and the way the beach is set up for social distancing is perfect. Right now (11:45AM) people are checking out and I am on the beach which is being cleaned by the staff. I can see them sanitizing all of the tables and chairs as well as the beach lounges. We had dinner from their restaurant, Halyard, last night delivered to our beach table and it was absolutely delicious. They even made plain fish with garlic for my children who are picky eaters. The scallops and the curry chicken were amazing. Overall great stay and we felt very safe here health wise. Highly recommended.
How many things can go wrong in just 36h @ Sound View Inn Greenport even if you are a returning customer? called on the way many times but was on hold for so long that when finally someone could pick up she called only ask to hold because she is busy, by the time we got through was too late for reserving a massage got wrong information about the winery we wanted to visit on the way and the yoga class… at check in asked to make another reservation for May and seemed that the lady at the reception didn’t want to help so we decided to pass… she just wasn’t interested… reserved dinner at the hotel restaurant, great service but super noisy which killed the atmosphere and the food was mediocre not what we expected from a highly rated restaurant and chef, fish and chips means coated cod we got lots of coated not that much cod, went to the bar very poor selection even the barman thought that is the case... at breakfast which is minimal asked for any kind of cheese, was told that they need to get it, then that it’s expensive and they will need to charge us for it which we approved and then that they can only sell it at 11:30am… after breakfast we wanted to try the yoga class which is advertised on the flyer we received when checking in and learned that the complementary voucher won’t work and that the farm tour also advertised on that day’s activity list is closed... so we had a super great day at everywhere we went (avoiding the hotel) visiting one of the nicest region in the country and came back to find that even if you leave the maid a nice tip you don’t get the full service, no tissue no soap… by the way we spoke to the manager in the morning, nice guy which did apologize for everything but that isn’t the solution. Bottom line if you want the best ocean view with it’s amazing sound, very nice rooms and nothing more and don’t care to spend for that a few hundred dollars a night you should go to Soundview, but if you want a great experience where what is promised is actually delivered don’t come it seems they have a real hard time to deliver, just too many things went wrong in such a short stay and this isn’t even the full list, just a sample. Leaving tomorrow will miss the view and sound of the view, not the Sound View Inn Greenport.…
We loved our stay at Soundview Greenport. A much more relaxed vibe than the Hamptons, amazing vineyards, great restaurants and beaches. We loves waking up to the view of the sound every day. The Halyard restaurant is also delicious and has amazing water views!
We love Greenport, and we were so excited to stay at Soundview, where we had stayed years ago. We love the view. Our stay this time was so disappointing. Check-in at 4 and out at 11—what an incredibly short time! We were given a handicap-accessible room without warning, so not even two chairs for the two of us. Ants appeared. We called the front desk, and nobody answered. After our stay we wrote a letter and never received a response.
We have driven past this place for years and finally got a chance to spend a night there and were so glad we did! The typical motel outside hides great design perfectly complementing the location right on the Long Island Sound. Fall asleep to the sounds of the waves, and hang out on your private patio if you get a suite. Definitely have a meal at the onsite restaurant, and hang out in Greenport, one of our favorite North Fork towns. Also, the Sound View is dog friendly! See photos of a happy pup!
