“A first class hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

This is a superb hotel! The staff is top notch, caring and compassionate. I cannot praise it enough. I have recommended it to friends and will continue to do so. I stayed there because my husband was seriously ill at Stony Brook Hospital. The staff bent over backwards to help me. My stay was comfortable, pleasant and I recommend it to all -- clean, quiet, lovely, just perfect.
Thank you to all.

My family and I stayed at The Holiday Inn Express in Stonybrook, Long Island for vacation for five nights driving from Orlando, Florida. We were really tired from the drive and when we got to the hotel we were really impressed by how clean everything was. Our room was spotless and even smelled good. I slept in a roll way bed and it was surprisingly comfortable, unlike other hotels. We took the LRR into the city (after asking the front desk what was the best way to arrive into the city) they were courteous and even gave us a pamphlet with the schedule. It was a little far away but after a long day of walking around it was nice to get back to our peaceful room. Also, the property is also very pretty with a volleyball court and a pond. It was a phenomenal stay and stood out compared to our other stays at Richmond and Manassas, Virginia on the way over to NYC.

We travel here for business and need to know everything will go smoothly. Melissa at the front desk, Tanya and Deena the Manager who takes duty at the desk as well, are so efficient that larger hotels could take a lesson from them. When I asked for an extra sheet and blanket, they appeared 5 minutes after we were in our room. When kids were running in the hall, a call to the desk yielded immediate attention...taken care of quickly and no unnecessary reporting back...just did it.
The housekeeping is excellent. Iris the Head Housekeeper is in evidence with a smile. Cleaning of the areas is constant but not annoying or smelly. The included breakfast is sufficient...clean,and hot beverages are hot -- cold are cold!
Bedroom: bed is clean and comfortable. Fridge was noisy so a call to the desk, and a knock at the door with a replacement!
This is our place of choice when we are in the Stony Brook area.

Started staying at this hotel last July when we went for orientation at a local college. Hotel was close to the university and the rate is reasonable. Over the course of the year we stayed approx. 10 nights. The room is always clean, beds and pillow's comfortable, and the staff friendly and accommodating. After traveling 4 hours in a snow storm, all I wanted was a comfy room and hot coco ,half an hour after my arrival the front desk called my room to make sure I found the hot coco .On another occasion my son was ill and I was unable to take him home as we live out of state and I took him off campus and we stayed at the hotel to nurse him back to health. I asked for a room near laundry with two beds and a sofa because we would be confined to our room for a few days. As always they met all my needs. Whenever I stay I notice they are always working updating, painting or making repairs. For the next three years I will consider this hotel my home away from home when visiting my son.

Full disclosure: I won a night at this hotel in a charity raffle. It was for an "Executive Suite". I was already familiar with the property as guests at my daughter's wedding stayed here several years ago. We were very pleased then and very pleased now.
Pros:
Phone reservations were super-easy
Check-in is very fast and very pleasant
Lobby is thoughtfully designed. Intimate seating areas, comfy chairs and couches, coffee available all the time
Suite was large and comfortable. It was actually two hotel rooms which had been put together. Big living room, limited kitchen, dining table.
Great bed. Lots of soft pillows
Bathroom was fine.
Took granddaughter swimming in the pool. It's big and very clean.
The grounds are fantastic. Toddler playground. Volley ball. Softball. Putting green.
Free breakfast was standard fare. Indoor and outdoor seating. Staff was attentive and kept the place very clean.
Cons:
There isn't any place to walk for food etc. You need a car.
The bathroom towels haven't kept up with the upscale feel of the property. Should be upgraded to larger, higher quality towels.

We had a great time and would stay here again any time.

Room Tip: We were on the 6th (top) floor which fairly quiet.

With all the places you could stay, I would consider this hotel. If you like to walk, you are minutes from a small shopping center and restaurants. Hotel staff seemed pleasant and accommodations were adequate.

Room Tip: Choose a high room. My lower room had traffic noise from the outdoor parking lot.

The hotel has a fitness room and a pool which are worth trying out. They have free wi-fi and free breakfast buffet for 4 hours, both extra pluses. All in all it was a very nice and comfortable stay.
