Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Striper47 Musty smelling room
The hotel is located well for visiting neighboring towns of Stony Brook and Port Jefferson. It is within easy travel to ocean beaches. The breakfast buffet makes it easy to get up and go - so you can enjoy the day vacationing.

This was a two-night stay for business. The room was comfortable and quiet. I got plenty of sleep. Free breakfast and internet were nice to have. I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in the Stony Brook area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ValT Staff is outstanding!
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express while attending a golf tournament. The staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful. Experienced noise from the floor above us late in the evening which, when brought to the staff's attention, was addressed right away. Clean as a whistle and staff always happy to assist you. Great job!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mlrob Friendly staff and comfortable room
The person at the front desk was very personable and focused on doing a quality job at check in. The room was a nice size with room to move around. Breakfast in the morning was ample with a staff member there dedicated to refilling all items. Overall I would recommend this location to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sully49 Only one downside
I loved every part of my stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Stony Brook. I do wish, though, that something could be done about the noise level of the A/C units. I confess to liking a really cold room and the unit certainly kept me cool enough, but when the fan was running the noise level was annoying.
Other than that - it was a great stay and I will be sure to return.

The staff at this hotel were wonderful. We had a very bad experience with a smelly room and spiders in our bed but the staff went above and beyond to help us out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff1989 great location and nice property
Stayed here 5 nights. Staff was excellent and hotel has a lot of amenities.If your a sports fanatic, this is the place to go .Hotel ground were immaculate. On summer days enjoy eating outside on the pick nick tables overlooking pond and gazebo. Breakfast choices change daily. Air conditioning was either too cold or very damp, no happy medium. Traffic on this road is very congested, but moves. This must be a main road for locals. If staying in the Stony Brook area this is a great location and I would recommend to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jackies favorite place Nicest staff perfectly clean and beautifully decorated property!!!
From the picturesque pond out front to the courteous staff you can't find a better property on Long Island. The General Manager is lovely and available to answer every request with kindness. Her staff is caring and competent, delivering superior service with a smile. The property was immaculate and very well cared for. We met several back office staff who wowed us with great personalities and a sincere interest in our level of satisfaction concerning our stay. Very impressive! The breakfast was amazing and well done. Who ever owns this hotel is quite the fortunate one!!! Charlie who heads operations is clearly a superstar at maintaining a fine property as this one! We felt like we were truly cared for and will definitely return whenever we come to the Long Island area for sure!!! It's a perfect property to make your home away from home!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rosemarie59 Great service; excellent value
Hotel was very comfortable. Bed and pillows were great. Connection devices on the night table for phones and tablets/iPads were very convenient. Breakfast choices were wonderful. Even the coffee was good.
The grounds were nicely kept with a nice area to relax outside the hotel that was nicely manicured to keep the highway view hidden. There are no lounge chairs though, but the Adirondack chairs are comfortable.
The pool and the fitness areas are very no-frills basic.
The beds and pillows were very comfortable, and the room was well appointed. The service staff--from the front desk people to the housekeeping staff-- could not have bee more helpful.
All in all, a good value. This would have been 5 stars based on value for price, but I thought the pool and fitness area could have been a bit more robust.

Haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn in years and what a surprise to find this facility, staff and amenities to be on a par with some of the more expensive chains offering this type of accommodations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Old NYer Overall Experience
Overall the facility and staff were excellent and I will be a repeat customer. The only area that I wished was better, was some more variety in the fruit that was available at breakfast. Every day it was limited to 2 easy to serve items: apples and bananas. Health needs limited me to only one. The refrigerator in the room enabled me to solve that problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by roro61 Stay here all the time on LI. very positive experiences
We stay at the Holiday Inn Express everytime we come up to Long Island. Our experiences have been all positive. The only negative that we have is the breakfast. The food seemed to be stale and not fresh. This is the first time this has happened to us. The omlette was horrible. But overall we had a very positve experience.

Staff was professional and attentive. The facility, both inside and outside was neat and clean with ample parking. Quiet with a secluded feel, as it was set back far enough from the main road so traffic noise was not an issue. The room and bathroom werre very clean. The breakfast bar provide ample selections to meet your basic needs. Snacks and beverages were available for purchase at check-in. Ample supply of USA Today.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mmls Comfy room and less than personable Desk Agents
The hotel was very clean and the room was comfortable, but the Desk Agents were less than personable upon check-in. Sometimes a guest needs a simple acknowledgement of their presence in front of you obviously awaiting check-in (with bag in hand, etc.). Understanding that you are busy, but the guest does not adhere to that knowledge right away, we are a guest and this is the hotel we chose...acknowledge me and I will acknowledge your hotel next time. A simple "How are you? or I'll be with you in a moment" is more than suffice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LoriA62 More amenities than usual
I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room. I didn't realize we would have a couch area. I also was impressed that there is a pond/landscaped area outside as overflow eating area. I also liked that one of the nights we were there, they offered a reception with free beer/wine. Some nights there was free popcorn too. I've also never seen sports amenities at a Holiday Inn, but there was a basketball court and baseball diamond in the back. The only negatives we experienced was I was disappointed not to receive my welcome bag as an IHG Rewards Club member. I mentioned this the next day, and the desk clerk didn't really acknowledge it. She was swiping a new key card, and I forgot to mention it again before I left the desk, so I never got it. The other situation to be aware of: apparently you can have dogs at this hotel. There was a small dog in the room across from us that had the high-pitched constant barking every time we walked by or when we opened our door. I love dogs, but I just don't know if I want to hear the constant bark in a hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nicky Jr room and service very nice
The coffee was mediocre and juice was watered down. The food was good and the room was very nice and quite adequate for our needs. The staff was friendly and courteous. It was a convenient location for our purposes and other members of the family were also staying there. we were able to have breakfast with friens and family. No one rushed us out. Overall a very enjoyable stay. The rewards points made it a lot more affordable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ludl Fairly nice hotel, but wifi internet very disappointing
I was disappointed by the internet service in the room which was basically unusable for me and another member of my party in another room.
Aside from that I felt the rooms were very nice. The air conditioning was really great. The TV selection was limited and many channels were analog for some reason. The bathroom was very clean, well lit and about all I could ask for. The staff was friendly and the common areas clean and kept up. The buffet breakfast was just OK with some sense that corners were being cut.
Overall I was satisfied, but if I had needed the internet for business purposes, I would have been upset.
