We stayed at the Three Village Inn for a single evening this past weekend. We were supposed to stay two nights, but found the accommodations to be poor. The reservation had been made months before for us, and despite having booked early we found ourselves in room above the Tavern. When I asked to have our room moved because our concern about the noise, we were told not to worry about that because the place should clear out by 11p. We had traveled from out of state, were tired, and the dismissive remark from the inexperienced front desk was highly annoying. Further annoying was the fact that they said they were booked and unable to accommodate our request. So we wound up staying, and further discovered that Room 4, our room, was in need of an update (see photos). The bathroom was straight out of the 50s or 60s, the shower did not drain and as I hope you can see, the views from the windows were non-existent.
Breakfast the next morning was included , so before we left we thought we would give it a try since the Mirabelle Tavern where breakfast is served is such an enjoyable place to have a dinner and a drink. Again, as with the room, the buffet breakfast was disappointingly uneven. Service was peripatetic and the food below average How is it that a a modest breakfast service runs out of plates mid-way through their morning?
This wasn't an inn in the tradition of places like the Manor on Golden Pond, Manchester Inn, the Inn at Thorn Hill, or the Jamaica Inn, all places we have stayed and enjoyed while spending time in the northeast. This place appeared to us to be a tired place in desperate need of a renovation and more mature, experienced staff capable of more empathy for those staying at the place.
We wound up staying at the Hilton Garden Inn at Stony Brook University our second night. It wasn't as convenient geographically, and wasn't the "inn" experience we had been looking for. but was really a pleasant, clean, modern hotel that helped erase our bad memories of the Three Village Inn.
