This is the second party I booked at Danfords and once again they did an amazing job. I had my daughters First Communion in the diplomatic suite and it was one of the best gatherings we had. From the valet attendant helping me get all the party stuff out of my car to our captain Kristin who oversaw the entire... More

I always love staying at Danfords because of the marina atmosphere and the beautifully decorated rooms. I was happy to see that none of that had changed, but there were a few surprising let downs. First of all, the Voos water, which the hotel charges $6 for was open. When we pointed this out upon check out, we were relieved... More

I booked without investigating so: 1st warning is that they have rooms on 3rd floor walk ups... 2nd warning is some rooms also have TERRACES to sit out on which would be great for sunsets & water views; sadly I didn't know that but would've gladly spent the extra $$ for that. 3rd...Be aware there is NO Continental Breakfast included...

Very poor experience, would not recommend to anyone. Shabby worn room, second hand furniture, a coat of white paint cannot hide everything. Staff rude and not helpful in the least, no hospitality training. Paid $330.00 for a room, no deck, no view. 4 pm check in, and room still not available. 11:00 check out. Amazing cash cow. Never again!

Wonderful setting on the harbor in village of Port Jefferson. Beautiful appearance on the outside but loses its luster inside. Some rooms are better than others (think stained carpet, warped doors, worn furniture and old in-window style air conditioners) and many have considerable noise from the surrounding nightlife in town. Definitely ask for a room with a balcony facing the... More

We went to Danfords because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor, and although, at first we were impressed, it was overall disappointing. The room was lovely, and good standard but due to the construction, very noisy both from outside (road and patron noise) and other rooms above were so noisy. The restaurant was ok, but the AC was so cold,... More

Had lunch outside on the patio, Very nice relaxed atmosphere right next to the marina, Watch the ferry coming in and out, Food was excellent as was the service, Tables were a little close together but that was fine, Crab cake was very moist and tasty as was the lobster roll, I would definitely go back to this wonderful place
