“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

My stay at Danfords did not disappoint. I grew up on Long Island and have fond memories of Danfords and Port Jefferson. The property was renovated about six years ago and it was amazing to see the antique building decorated in an upscale fashion - the design of old and new blended very well. The staff is friendly and accommodating and seem to have a great deal of synergy. The property represents one of the best attributes of Long Island - the ability to enjoy a great meal and view on the water. The Wave restaurant is one of the best on the island. It is a great place to decompress whether you are traveling on business or for pleasure.

Danford's hotel is in the heart of one of the nicest quaint villages on Long Island... Port Jefferson Village. I just love going there to walk around, get ice cream or have dinner. Well, Danford's is in the middle of it all... on the water. Nice, clean, beautiful rooms. We had one with a balcony facing the water... Didn't want to leave. We sat on the balcony and watched the sun set. You can also watch the ferry come & go. from your window you can see people walking along the streets and going to dinner. In the early morning the town is so beautiful and quiet. Just love staing here... can't wait to go back!!!

Stayed at the Danfords Hotel for a wedding with a group of friends. The room was very spacious, bed super comfortable, shower a welcomed surprise. The views form the hotel are beautiful. The staff was super nice albeit we did wait a little long to get an extra towel. Parking was a little dicey as we got there late afternoon on a Saturday. Wedding the courtyard was beautiful and the reception was wicked fun. The wait staff at the reception were fun and the food was delicious. Highly recommend!

It is a renovated and upscale hotel at Port Jefferson nearby Stony Brook. Bed is very comfortable. A big couch set and a decent size of a desk and two sets of drawer sets and a closet are enough to take even your family get-away luggage. Their room is spacious with a good size of a bathroom. You can hear ferry noise but it is not that bad. Do not take the water bottle in the room. It is outrageously expensive. They have exercise room in a separate building (you need to walk out from your building) and do not have a swimming facility as far as I know.

Danfords Hotel is in an unbeatable location along the waterfront with views of Long Island sound from many rooms. The reviews in TripAdvisor vary widely - and it seems that the expectations of some guests are that it is a luxury hotel. It's not. It's comfortable, well kept, and in some ways relaxed - quite like a vacation in a beach town. I found the rooms large, comfortable, clean and complete with the amenities I wanted from free wifi to an ironing board. The front desk was helpful in directing me to retailers in town who might have the obscure item I was searching for, and the team at the front desk happily arranged for a taxi for me early on my departure day. No real complaints at all.

I stayed one night in the brick building across the street. The room was very large and comfortable. It looked like it had been recently updated. It was spotlessly clean. Complimentary breakfast is served in main building in the restaurant. Self serve cereal selections, breads, muffins, as well as sweet rolls were available. Fresh fruit bowl and juices, also. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with gorgeous hanging flower baskets. I walked along the beach and strolled through the town.

Get ready to drag your luggage across the street and then be advised of the unsecured parking behind a shopping center, and just because you a guest in the hotel don't expect free parking. an do not ask for a bell hop , "We don't do that" Call the front desk more than once with a problem and they hang up. The rooms say air conditioning, yea the unsecured window units,(if they work) hanging out you window on first and second floors. There are no refrigerators T.V. did not work right and you have to walk in the back of poorly lit building for ice in the next building. the flowers out side were covered in bees and flies not to mention the fruit flies floating about the room and around the decaying fruit from the fruit tree outside the Jetty and Galley buildings. The bathroom lighting is dim to say the least ,probably to hide the mold growing in the chipped cork floors. As in other reviews the carpets are soiled. The windows boast plastic blinds "classy", the mattress's are covered in a rubberized mattress pad that was even hotter than the rooms "air conditioning" the mattress's looked soiled as well. If you plan on a quiet stay think again, most rooms are two and three floor walk ups and the sounds of luggage being dragged down the stairs and foot traffic was unacceptable.

Room Tip: hmmm tip for a good room.... drive right buy and find a Hilton
