I needed a last minute place to stay for one night on Long Island. I am a IHG Member so I booked at room at the Holiday Inn in Plainview. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Our room was great. The upgraded renovation make this feel like a very special hotel for a great value!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nosleep1234 Loud and noisy
Hotel was old, furniture falling apart in room, looks like someone spilled water and it never got cleaned up. AC/Heat, poor to adjust and get comfortable old looking, Noise in Hallways all night long. Food limited and not good. Bar prices very unreasonable. $10.00 for a glass of wine, I could by a bottle for 12.00. No announcements at the bar that happy hour ended, until you get the bill. Breakfast not good. Service in the resturant poor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jetcrazy1 Outstanding Hotel
Very nice stay as usual. Great location, very nice room. Breakfast buffet was excellent as were the staff in the restaurant The Holiday Inn has been a main stay of Plainview for as long as I can remember. I've seen the changes to the hotel as it has grown over the many years as it looked out over Plainview. The value the hotel offers for the price you pay is second to none ! seems to be the best kept secret on Long Island. I look forward too trips back to NY and staying when needed at the HOLIDAY INN of Plainview. Thank you staff for another great stay !

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Maria514 Nice with a view things that need attention
Stayed here only for one night for a wedding close by. The hotel staff was nice, accommodating and helpful. My room was a non-smoking room but it smelled like people have been smoking in there for years. There was a sign in the bathroom that said it was a non smoking room but it's a movable sign so they probably put it in whatever room they felt like. When I turned on the heat, it just pumped out even more of the smell. Maybe they need to clean the heating vent, the smell was so strong that I turned the heat off and covered my clothes in the closet so they wouldn't pick up that stink. Other than that, the bed was clean and comfortable. Bathroom clean but there were ants in the corner.. I hate ants!
The windows to the rooms seem backwards to me, looking out into the hall, the window is blacked out but when you look from the hallway in, you see the room and anything going on inside!
Overall I recommend this hotel, just the few things irked me!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Emily27 Uncomfortable and overpriced
I spent a lot of money to essentially stay in a glorified motel. The way that the "hotel" is designed (a building inside of a building) made it so there was no natural light coming into the room. Furthermore, the room was so stuffy due to no fresh air available to even enter the room. The room was extremely dusty, I am allergic to dust, and this caused discomfort during my stay. Also I kept finding long black hairs in the room, one on the bed, and one on the towels. The lighting provided for the room was terrible. It is also appalling that a continental breakfast was not included. I have never stayed at a Holiday Inn, or any Hotel of this nature, that did not provide a continental breakfast. The staff was no very friendly or helpful. This "hotel" was a terrible experience, completely uncomfortable, and overpriced for what was actually offered.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harold523 Room comfort
When we arrived the outside temperature was in the 60's, but inside the air conditioning was blasting. As a result, our room was very cold and we could not get the heat to work. This made for a very uncomfortable night's sleep.

I was very pleased with the service and the staff. Brian was very helpful with the room and whatever was needed. The room was ready and clean and quiet considering the proximity to the highway. The location was convenient. The van service for our event was a great plus.
