“This place is the textbook dentition of "quaint".”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Stayed here for one night while in L.I. for a show at the Paramount -- The town is very light on hotels, as in.. almost none. The hotel looks a bit... weathered, we'll say on the outside and the rooms are dated inside. All that said.. it's a fine place to crash; it's clean and as New Yorkers go, the staff is friendly enough. It's off the beaten path a bit, very quiet, no road noise. Nothing really to complain about at all except it felt a little pricey but again, there are maybe 3 hotels in a 25 mile radius so, the market does what it does.

The real win is that within a 1/2 mile walk (down a pretty dangerous stretch of road) there are 3 really solid places to grab a bite and/or a beer. My favorite was Nicky's -- Which summed every Long Island stereotype into really enjoyable lunch/dinner. Go in, sit at the bar and enjoy yourself.

ProTip: Cab rides are $14 one way... to pretty much everywhere in the town. Spent a lot getting to and from the 'downtown' area and train station.

Room Tip: The stairs are hell so see if you can get something on the first floor.

Traveling from south Jersey to Long Island was a long drive, where i couldnt wait to stretch my legs and just take a shower once we finally got there. Pulling into the drvieway which was COVEDRED in pot holes, there was a giant yellow notice reading "support the chalet keep us open!", the town wanted to condemn it. We get to the office, where the woman was over worked, saying they were backed up ( no one was there it was 11am) and that it was 126$ with a 40$ key deposite. Upon arrival we were early i was thinking oh great, while they did accommodate us hours early, the rooms were just unbearable. 2 rooms, 1 was to be cleaned (ha) and one was ready then. We walked in to find a large spider just sitting on, the i guess you could call it desk, and a tv box that said ERROR with no channels. 126$ for this, great. I'm thinking thank god this isnt my room. We get into our room, and it looks.... okay.
I go to hop in the shower, theres smeared hair, i was afraid to even touch the walls. No shampoo, soap, or hair dryer, 1 tiny window. I got ready best i could for this upscale wedding in a dump.
Coming back to it at night i thought, i'll just have to get so drunk and not think about the room, and apparently that wasnt enough. The sheets FELT dirty, i believe my boyfriends sister quoted " I felt like i was sleeping on dirty used bloody gauze pads", shes a nurse, but none the less thats disgusting. Then to think about it we half watched them clean our room earlier, and i dont even remember watching them change the bed sheets, thank god i didnt sleep IN them, just on them.
Couldnt wait to get home and get a REAL shower, this place is being condemned for a reason and i suggest you dont use this hotel, even if it is the only one close to the Thatched Cottage. You'll already putting 166 outta your pocket with deposite and what not, just stay at the Hilton in Huntington.

Also, no pool, no refrigerators, microwaves. no fitness center, no path to walk, NOTHING. When we asked about the closest food, they suggested their vending machines which had about 7 bags in the entire machine of old stale food, and a water machine that was out of order.

Room Tip: dont go here.

We stayed in the Chalet for a 3 night stay with a small family. The location was very convenient for our visit with nearby family, and for a motel it is not a bad place to stay. Very helpful front desk, even if it smelled a bit like smoke in the office. The room was a bit musty/damp, and we could have used more ventilation. The walls are BRICK - so we didn't have any problems with noise. Bathroom/shower was outdated, but the water pressure and shower head were EXCELLENT! Beds were not bad for a motel - firm, but comfortable. Good wifi and cell phone reception for our stay. It was very buggy near our door, which was frustrating. Watch out for the goose poop on the walkways! We liked the pond view, and the bunnies in the field.

We spent the weekend at the Chalet "on the pond" and had the most romantic,peaceful weekend ever. The Chalet is beautiful and in a setting that makes you forget your still on Long Island. A fantastic get away in your own backyard. The staff was polite, friendly and extremely hospitable. The prices were reasonable and we can't wait to go back. Truely an unexpeded find that we will return to over and over again.

Had an unexpected trip come up and had to book a place fast - and I was so lucky to find the Chalet Inn and Suites! Greeted by friendly staff at check in and enjoyed a super comfortable stay in my super clean room! If I had more time to stay in the area, I also would have taken time to explore the neighborhood which featured what looked to be like great restaurants. I give this place two thumbs up!
