“great view, great room, great food !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

My wife and I have been having meals and drinks here for years and always thought how nice it would be to have a room at the Sound view and not have to travel the seventy or so miles home afterward. We finally had the time around election day, and booked a suite for two nights. Upon our arrival we were told that we had been upgraded at no extra charge to a larger suite, one with a kitchen, living area and sleeping alcove.The views from the room were beautiful, the sunsets amazing.The bed was very comfortable, the shower was great, the kitchen had all we needed, though we decided to have both nights dinners at the restaurant.The steak was excellent, as were the flounder, clams on the half shell and the regular and veggie burgers. The entire staff was friendly, helpful and accomodating, especially the bartenders, who were helpful with local information and gossip, but only the humorous kind. My wife and I are looking forward to our next trip out East, and we will definitely stay at the Sound view.

Room Tip: As I see in another review, the rooms with the floor to ceiling glass provided a really great view...

Another quick weekend get away to enjoy the east end wineries and scenery. This place is located right on the sound. We took the bigger room with floor to ceiling windows looking out at the water. It was beautiful! The room was clean and very large. It had a walk in closet and a large living room area. Fully equipped with stove, sink and fridge as well as dishes and utensils. They were only missing the microwave but it really didn't effect us at all. They also serve a small continental breakfast with coffee (very good), small cakes and pastries, cereal and mini bagels. Perfect for us as we are not big breakfast eaters to begin with.
There is a restaurant attached to the hotel. We had a light dinner there the first night. I have read many mixed reviews on the restaurant, but I was pleasantly surprised with the food. Every thing we ate was delicious. We arrived about 45 minutes before closing and never felt rushed to get out. They also had a decent sized bar area with a piano player. I guess since it was so late and off season, there weren't many people there - but we found it enjoyable.

Room Tip: Lower levels have direct access to the small beach. The floor to ceiling windows are worth the view...

Here's the deal: the north Fork of Long Island is wonderful and any chance to experience its water views is always a treat. Sound View could be spectacular baed on its location. BUT...what it is right now is a shabby motel which happens to have a prime spot on the Long Island Sound. The rooms could be updated and upgraded with just the smallest bit of effort. So far that doesn't seem on the agenda. We've been coming to this location for years and, likely will continue to do so but our expectations will always remain LOW.

Room Tip: Use it as your base to explore and get as much enjoyment out of that view as possible...but...don...

First time stay here, and at a reduced rate, I think. Not sure what their peak season summer prices are, but I wouldn't want to pay them. The beds were comfortable, but the rooms are generally tired, especially the bathrooms. I doubt that anything has been changed since the 60's, including the tub/shower sliding door, which was very hard to move. It is clearly a summer motel, as there are large gaps on exterior doors. Wind from the sound was howling (not their fault, of course), which meant cold air leaking into the room. Monday morning traffic on 48 started early and was louder than we expected - glad we were there for just one night. I don't know what their competition is in the area, but you might check out other reviews. We did not eat meals at the inn, so no comment on the restaurant, which others seem to like.

Early last month I was faced with a serious health crisis and wanted to get away. I chose the Sound View Inn in Greenport, NY for its location which is near practically all the North Fork attractions. Above all I chose it for its tranquil location on the Long island Sound. Once you close the door behind you and lift your eyes and see the sights through the wall to wall glass doors (I took a 2.5 room suite) overlooking the Long Island Sound you immediately begin to relax. The private beachfront balcony beckons and the gulls seem to call out your name.

The rooms are clean and all the amenities were in working order. I could have used a king size bed but the ones in the rooms were comfortable enough. I really like the kitchenette; we could make our own coffee and tea without having to leave our little refuge.

All in all, I spent two wonderful days at the Sound View Inn. It was just what the doctor ordered.

Pleasant! Great breakfast! Excellent coffee!
A lovely dinner at the restaurant. The ocean was great to look at.
Clean rooms and comfortable mattresses. I recommend people to stay at this inn. The office staff was helpful about the town's activities and very informative. Always willing to help their guests. Plenty of clean towels. I liked the furniture in the room. Very comfortable in all respects.

This motel certainly has a great view of LI Sound, but otherwise leaves a lot to be desired. It is convenient to vineyards and other good restaurants but other than being clean it is way outdated. The restaurant at the inn serves ok food, but nothing memorable.
