We booked a room for a travel soccer tournament. 2 moms and 2 daughters. Since there weren't any rooms available with 2 beds, we booked a king with pullout couch. When we got there, we got a room with a king bed and no couch. They did send up a rollaway bed for the mess up at least. We asked... More

The rudeness of the staff made this a negative experience. I stayed at the hotel with my senior mother for an overnight. She clearly has difficulty walking (she uses a cane), has a hard time moving up stairs, and cannot use elevators. Though we requested a room on the ground floor when we booked the room, the staff could not... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express with my family. The staff was friendly, and check in process was painless. Room and bathroom are clean and quiet. Mattress is pretty comfortable. 24 hr gym and pool. Complimentary breakfast is nice. Down side: the AC in the room is noisy. Overall it was good for its price. I recommend it.

I've been coming here every week while working in the area. The facility is clean and well maintained. The staff is very helpful. I will be returning. There are many great places to eat in the area and quit a bit to do after work.

As we were visiting family on Long Island, the Holiday Inn Express in Stony Brook was a great place to stay. The room was large, always kept clean, and far enough from the highway that the room was not noisy. We had no complaints with the breakfast. Our first morning the hotel was quite busy so we had to wait... More

Although the hotel had an outside patio it was in rough shape and pond was filthy. The hotel lobby was beautiful but then you get to your room and it was a big disappointment. None of the staff was polite or cared to pay any attention to you. Breakfast was a mess in the morning and not very well stocked.... More

We stayed over night and couldn't be more pleased. The room and lobby were immaculate. It also had would looked like a wonderful hot and cold breakfast. We didn't have the opportunity to try it. The bed was comfortable and was happy to see it had a self serve laundry room. We were happy we chose to stay here.

We were pleasantly surprised by the improvement in Holiday Inn since I was a kid. the staff was outstanding and the breakfast was very good! We found the room comfortable.
