By Long Island, NY standards, this motel is in the "flea bag" category. By world standards, this motel is in the basic, no frills, thread bare, seen better days category....if there is such a category. The first room we were given had what appeared to be mold on the ceiling. We requested another room. It was very clean and large. We were two adults and two teenagers but we were not tripping over each other. One light was not working. The bathroom appeared to have been recently tiled in attractive light blue hues. Do not walk barefoot on the bathroom floor. The large tiles are slippery when wet. During the summer, do not try to cut costs by putting four people in one room. The body heat of four people in one room will completely diminish the barely noticeable effects of the air conditioner. The location of this motel is great...it is across the street from two local beaches on the Long Island Sound and it is next to a small amusement park. The Oyster Bay line of the Long Island Railroad is only a 10 minute drive away. That makes New York City accessible by train, although the departures and arrivals in Oyster Bay are sparse.
