“Beautiful view!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

The location was perfect.The rooms were clean and The staff in the front office were very friendly. The hotel is close enough to all the shops and restaurants. They serve a small continental breakfast with coffee,,Perfect to sit outside and enjoy the beutifull view.
We will definitely be coming back here next year.

You can't beat the location. The view of the Long Island Sound is breathtakingly beautiful. The hotel has 1,400 feet of beach front....all of it visible from every room in the hotel. The rooms were clean, though somewhat old fashioned. The staff in the front office were very friendly and accommodating. The weekend weather was all sunshine and warmth. The pool was opened and the water (solar heated) was comfortable enough for swimming. We will certainly be returning to the Sound View Inn.

Although the place is a bit outdated, the rooms were clean. But the view was amazing! We got there during preseason which means no one was there! We had the place to ourselves and it was a lot less expensive. We go here every year, it is fun for couples, families, or anyone who wants to get away.

Room Tip: The beach is rocky, so wear comfy shoes!

At this here place you pay premium for the location: most of the units are ~50 feet away from the waves. The beach is rather narrow, rocky and sprinkled with whatever debris the sound decided to part with. The front door of your room is 2 car-lengths from the highway, with noise of cars zooming by invading your accommodations. You could probably park 2 cars side by side facing your unit, just be careful. Some units have ramps for wheelchair access. Bedroom unit we stayed in was rather spacious, clean and rather dated. WiFi was slow, TV - grainy, continental breakfast looked like "Meh"-grade (went to Bruce instead). Toilet had rather annoying tendency to regurgitate whatever one tried to flush, showerhead was undecided on what it was supposed to deliver - a fine mist or a power-wash. So you get both. Soundproofing was also interesting - one can't hear what goes on in the rooms next to you, but noises from the highway and from the porch soundside were let in without much interference. Great sunset views make up for a lot of this, but clouds leave you wishing for the Motel 6.

We came here with friends and family to celebrate my birthday. From top to bottom everything was so so nice.The people are super friendly, the grounds are serene and perfect for a relaxing beach getaway. You do feel far from the hustle and bustle of greater Long Island and NYC. The rooms have spectacular views of the water. The pool also faces the beach. You really feel completely in vacation mode when you arrive. The hotel is close enough to a small grocery store and liquor store so that you can fill your room with everything you need for maximum enjoyment. our room had a mini kitchenette so we were able to keep groceries stored and refrigerated. The restaurant on site was good and you are also very close to some other adorable little towns with shops, and restaurants. Wineries are very close by as well if you are looking to do wine tasting and vineyard tours. I've lived in New York all of my life and honestly wished we had discovered this hotel much sooner. Looking forward to going back this summer.

Everyone should stop complaining about this place. A vacation is what YOU make of it. The Sound View Inn is a great place to go and enjoy some quiet time or go to any of the many attractions close by. The beach, the view ,the staff,the restaurant all are terrific. As for as all the complainers do me a favor and stay home this way I can get a suite with more availability. Thank you Sound View Inn, i'll be back.

Room Tip: Stay in a 21/2 room corner suite with a kitchen. You can catch fish right outside your room and then...

I have been going out to the Sound View since the 1970's. I just spent sometime there again and like a great bottle of wine, the Sound View is a gift to yourself like no other. It has survived 2 hurricanes and a fire. It is still quaint and calming as it has always been. I hope it keeps going as it is, I highly recommend the Sound View to those of us who enjoy the peace of the Island. It is wonderful.

Room Tip: there are no bad rooms
