“Be carefull”
Reviewed 21 July 2005

Be carefull which room you are given at the this hotel. The brick annex acrooss the street from the main hotel sits on a busy street Rt 25A. If your room faces the street be prepared to be woken regularly by the Harley's crusing the area all night. If your room faces the parking lot you will enjoy the site of a garbage collection dumpster. If your room is on the end facing the adjoining building your air conditioner will will be covered in pidgeon droppings as well as the window. I also suggest that a visitor take along a bottle of bathroom mildew spray to clean the bath tub. Just a suggestion!
Thrirty years a sales traveller!

The location is fantastic. We went there for a wedding and had a wonderful time. The room was nice and clean. It was fantastic as a guest to be able to go to the reception and stay in the same hotel that night. It is also a great little area to wander about. Appetizers for happy hour before the reception were excellent and so was the sit-down dinner. The service was fantastic as well. Brunch was not exactly what I was expecting and well overpriced for the food you ate. What would make this place even better is if they cut the price of brunch in half and had real parking, not only valet. All in all it was a great time!

Worst Hotel on LI! Our room was 3 blocks away from the main building. Parking is a nightmare! The room was above an antique shop. Not what we were expecting. Apparently the pictures posted are only the main building. At 6:30 Mother's day morning I was greeted by an army of ANTS! They were all over the kitchen counter, floors, table and even in the bathroom. This was disgusting and it's disgraceful the condition of these rooms and what they charge. We immediately packed up and left. Thanks to Danford's I had a very memorable first Mother's day!

I put my wedding together in approximately three weeks. My fiance (now husband) and I own a time-consuming business and were looking to get married for years. We saw a "window" of time open up before Christmas and looked to find a place for a small reception. We also didn't have time to go away for a honeymoon. Danford's worked out beautifully; we could get married, have our reception, and a brief honeymoon all in one place! Our huge harborview hotel room was beautiful, decorated like something out of a magazine! We chose the brunch buffet, served in a private room with a view of the ferries and other boats coming and going. This, my friends, was at half the average cost of a sit-down dinner at your local "wedding factory." Our personal attendant fussed attentively all day; he took enormous pride in his work and "his bride." My guests have not stopped raving about the food for three years now. This same brunch is available to guests and restaurant goers every Sunday. My out-of-town relatives who had never been to Port Jefferson or Danford's before now look forward to booking weekend getaways. There are conference facilities, salon services, you name it. You don't have to be a bride to love this charming and pretty place.

Room was great. Large, comfortable.
Weather was really great. Views were fabulous.
Menu looked good, but food was bad. I had baked clams. So salty they were inedible. Also a lobster that I believe was spoiled.
Breakfast buffet (no cooked to order food except omlets) had cheap sausages, gummy blintzes, strange oatmeal (strawberry).
I was only one to have clams and was sick for 2 days. Should have stuck to omlets.

We stayed at Danford's for several days in early August 2004 and had a lovely, large room with some antique furniture. The location couldn't be better---Danford's is composed of several buildings scattered about an area on the harbor. Their American Bistro has a lovely breakfast buffet. They host a lot of parties and weddings, so it's quite a party atmosphere. If you need lots of peace and quiet, this might not be for you. We'd definitely stay there again.
