Hilton Garden Inn Stony Brook

Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is a great hotel! Everything is very clean, nice and up to date. The location was excellent for me and circle road is an awesome and safe place to walk. It's right on the university campus grounds and the hospital too so there is a lot of security and a very clean area. It is in the suburb but the train is in walking distance to get you NYC. The train does not run frequently like it does closer to the city so you have to plan well but the ride is relatively easy. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. Mostly college students so if they don't know be patient because you can have the manager help you out and they are great too. Not a lot of restaurants in the area so you do need a car to explore outside the area. So glad Hilton has an excellent property available and please let it stay that way!

Excellent accommodations and beautiful hotel. My family was locked out of room and it took wayyy too long to resolve. It became scary and was on the virge of emergency and security and staff too slow.

This is a new hotel built in the 2013 for the university visitors. Very good hotel with indoor pool and with all necessary facilities for a business trip. Located in the SUNY campus. There is a very good hotel shuttle service to all local attractions. Friendly staff.

I recently attended a multi-day conference at Stony Brook University, and was delighted to find a relatively new Hilton Garden Inn, right on campus. I booked there for the convenience -- as it was a short walk to where my meetings were, at the Wang Center -- but was delighted to find great comfort and amenities at the hotel. It was also a short drive to Stony Brook village, and the waterfront area of Port Jefferson. Highly recommended.

This hotel was very clean. The room was nice when I arrived. Bathroom was very clean and ready. Bed was comfortable. Very satisfied with this hotel and the price was better than any others around the area. It was also in a very nice and quiet area.

This hotel is comfortable with an inviting lobby and nice sleeping rooms. Since it is on a very nice University campus, the surrounding area is very nice for a walkabout.

But hotel service is minimal. For instance, I asked the front desk clerk for a taxi and he handed me the business cards of two taxi services. To me, hotel service means the front desk clerk calls and arranges the taxi since I am unfamilar with the area.

Also, the breakfast baffet is limited and overpriced.

Room Tip: I still recommend this hotel. But just know that this is a limited service facility.

I was attending at conference at SUNY Stony Brook and my wife and I stayed here. The room was clean and attractive. The conference food, which was served in an academic building, was superb. The breakfast buffet for conference attendees was tasty and included, eggs, bacon, potatoes and the usual pastries and drinks. The business center computers were easily accessible and quick to access the Net. Front desk people were cheerful and helpful. Free parking! Can't comment on the room price because the room was free with attendance at the conference.
