Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Stony Brook
Reviewed 30 September 2013

We had a family event in stony brook and all the bed & breakfast/inns were booked so we settled for the holiday inn express. Rooms were neat and clean and the front desk was friendly and helpful. Nothing negative just pretty much what you would expect.

I have family in nearby and have stayed at most of the hotels in the area. I keep coming back to this one because it is the best, hands down, even if the pricing is a bit on the high end for the area. This place is at a much higher level than any other Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express I've ever stayed at. For me, there's not much in this part of Long Island other than family. But if you need to visit this area, I highly recommend this hotel. What I like most is the size of the rooms, which allow four adults to spread out. You get two comfy queen beds, plus a sleep sofa, plus a refrigerator and microwave, plus a desk area. The bathroom is a decent size with modern finishes. Internet access is free and high speed and four people can connect from the same room without any problem. Parking is plentiful. There are many self-service luggage carts in the lobby if you need to cart a lot of stuff. They are constantly updating and upgrading this hotel. Each time I come back they've made some new improvement. Sometimes it is a little thing that I would never use, like a beach volleyball court or new equipment in a child's playground. Sometimes it is something I use alot like new TVs or a fresh movie-style popcorn machine in the lobby. What counts is that management is constantly on its toes to improve a place that is already pretty nice. The one thing that is just ok about this hotel is the free breakfast. The food is standard, processed Holiday Inn fare, nothing beyond my expectations, and yet is always very crowded. Often we prefer to skip their breakfast and just go out for delicious NY bagels down the road. I wish that in keeping with their desire to excel in all ways, the hotel would do more fresh breakfast offerings like preparing a vat of homemade oatmeal instead of putting out the little packets to which you add hot water.

Room Tip: Internet coverage can be a little spotty in the rooms at the very edges of the hotel, but good in al...

WOW! What a phenomenal review of our property, our team is ecstatic. Thank you so much for being not only a loyal guest of not only our property, but the IHG Brand as well! Our management and staff seek to exceed all expectations of property maintenance and renovations as well as the customer service our guests receive during their stay. I appreciate your feedback regarding our breakfast choices - a homemade vat of oatmeal would certainly go a long way. I would be happy to pass that suggestion along to our GM and owner, what a great idea! We look forward to being your "home away from home" for any future stays!

Great location, easy to get to Long Island express way. Close to stoney brook university, and short drive 15 minutes to port jefferson. Very clean rooms, refrigerator, microwave, bathrooms very nice. Breakfast very convenient and free! Free wifi and parking. No hot tub, and fitness center small. Staff very friendly. Only complaint was some lout door slamming at night on our floor but there was some soccer team that was loud and on our floor, but turned on the bathroom fan and I fell asleep fine. Very accommodating for wedding rate!

Rooms clean and spacious. Amenities much more than we expected - athletic field, putting green, large garden and grill area, all immaculately maintained. A little on the expensive side but a great hotel.

I've stayed here many times and it's one of the nicer HIE's. There's a huge parking lot (free parking), it's near a good shopping center, and even though it's located on a highway, the rooms face the parking lot so it's quieter than you might imagine. The rooms are standard but on the spacious side. They have fridges and microwaves and flat-screen TV's with some HD channels. The breakfast room is large and the choices are good.

While I have stayed at other HIE's, I was excited to see this one was different. Clean, good service, ample parking, and hot breakfast as you would expect. Plus a pool, putting green, two horse shoe pits, sand volleyball, and a softball field! Free wifi. 10 min. to Stony Brook campus. Grocery stores, gas, fast food, and liquor stores nearby if needed.
