We traveled to Long Island for a friend's wedding in Manorville, NY. The only decent place we could find online was the Fairfield Inn in Medford, NY (only 15 minutes away). We are Marriott members, but had never stayed at their Fairfield Inn locations before and weren't sure what to expect. What a lovely surprise to find a crisp, clean and well-planned hotel with some of the nicest staff we've ever encountered. The young man at the desk suggested a great little place to eat which is NOT to be missed, the Medford Pastaria. It appears to be a hole in the wall, but inside it's authentic and they served one of the best strip steaks we've had in a long time. Oh, and there's a Starbucks practically next door to the hotel! The only drawback would be the "quiche" at the complimentary breakfast which is to be avoided at all costs (but again, it's complimentary, so.....) The coffee is good and they have lovely bagels and juices which I would recommend sticking to for breakfast. The room had nice spring green colors and I liked that I could open the windows (well a little bit, anyway) so some of the luscious fall air could refresh the room. Oh, and the whole hotel is smoke-free and new enough to where I believe there probably has never been smoke in the rooms. And, they have an indoor pool, which is nice. As a side note, it's only a short drive from the Aquarium in Riverhead, which we visited and very much enjoyed. And just south in Mastic, there is Ladikin's Restaurant, which was another pleasant surprise. Lovely, creative, gourmet meals at a very decent price with patio dining overlooking the river (covered when we were there). I would almost consider staying here when we go to NYC to see the shows It's very close to the Islip airport and the Ronkokoma train station that goes into the city. All in all, I would highly recommend this location for any travel to Long Island!
