We stayed at the Village Inn for four nights in July of 2007. Having grown up in Stony Brook I wanted to stay at the Village Inn based upon it's location and fond memories. Well .... the place needs a serious face lift. Where should I begin? The "cottage" we stayed at was filthy: the "carpet" was so worn and dirty we all wore shoes while walking around the "cottage", the towel rack was hanging from the wall (fell out of the wall mount), there was no lightbulb in the bathroom (yes we asked for one) so we used the suntan light to see while in the bathroom, the linens and towels are paper thin, the air conditioning unit barely worked, there was no fan to keep the "air" moving, the caulking in the bathroom was crusty and worn and the "TV" barely got a signal at times. However, the worst of it all was the safety concerns. Our "cottage" entrance faced a dark deserted area and the lamp post and light on the exterior wall did not work. Yes, we asked for both to be replaced and EVENTUALLY the lamp post light was replaced.
On the up side ... the grounds (the front on the Inn) are well maintained (however the back side is littered with trash - maintenance equipment, cigarettes, ash trays). The location is great (right by the harbour). The breakfast buffet was alright. The service in the restaurant was excellent. The front desk was well organized. Check in was easy.
Unfortunately, the Three Village Inn is the only real option if you want to stay in historic Stony Brook. The real tragedy is that it could be an amazing place if the owners would make a substantial investment in upgrading the Inn.
