Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GTO Guy One of the nicest
I have stayed in various hotels/motels and this one has got to be one of the nicest I have seen. The entire property was clean and well manicured. Very good lighting in both the parking areas and the common areas. Rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff was extremely curteous and attentive. The breakfast offering was "top notch" with various items available for everyone's taste. I would definitely recommend this Holidy Inn Express as a "place to stay" if you are in this area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nynjmd Great accommedations and free full breakfast
I traveled from Maryland to Long Island for the funeral of my daughter's father-in-law. I was able to do early check in so I could freshen up before I went to the wake. The hotel staff was very understanding and helpful. I came back with my grandchildren so that they did not have to attend the evening wake and to give their other grandmother some time alone with her son

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Josie1943 Reservations
Originally I made a reservation for one night.
I needed to change it to two nights.
The system would not allow me to change the date of arrival so I made a second (separate) reservation for the second night.
I explained to the clerk at the desk when I checked in that I had two separate reservations. He said "No Problem" and checked me in for the two nights..
On the second day I was asked by maid service and front desk five times (if I was checking out)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ljdeck Best mattress ever
All in all it was a great stay. The bed was super comfy. My only fault was the room smelt a little musty. I ran the A/C and kept the room cool and it was acceptable.
I was randomly chosen "Guest of the day" and got a free room upgrade, that was an unexpected pleasure. The room was huge.
I was part of a wedding group who had a discount rate and I was told that it was a limited number of rooms and I didn't get the discount, that was a disappointment too.

I stay in this Holiday Inn often, and as always, I am quite comfortable. The rooms are always clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly and always helpful.
I will continue to stay at this property when I am in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable & convenient
Stayed here for a wedding with a group rate set up by the bride. The location was very convenient to the wedding & reception. Room was clean & very comfortable, especially the bed. Breakfast buffet fare was average, comparable to most other hotels in the category.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dan563 Sagging and worn out mattress
Sagging and worn out mattress. Soiled and worn carpet. The room stunk with a strong oder. The room and area was very noisy. The door rattled loudly and woke us up every time another guest slammed their door and this went on unitl early in the morning. Upon arriving the bathroom floor was sticky. The hallway was dirty with visible dirt, dust, and pieces of lint up and down the hallway. There was no relaxing and no rest for us on this night. I voiced my displeasure with the clerk at the front desk and received no follow up.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Janicelynn HORRIBLE THEN GOT WORSE
Reservations couldn't have been more
HORRIBLE and they couldn't have made more mistakes then if they tried to make it purposely!
If I didn't catch ALL the mistakes myself before it was too late.
my event would have been EVEN WORSE.
And when I asked for help after I did the work to make it right I was passed off by the General Manger of the Centereach location to customer service so I could re live the horribleness of what happen.
This all that happened before my stay even took place.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mygirls0004 It's an ok stay...
We live local and take our kids to a hotel every once in a while as a "getaway" We are a family of 5 - most hotels do not accomodate us so we try to stay where we can all fit. I found this hotel and thought this would be great but the hotel needs some renovations - the lobby area is nice but the rooms definitely could use renovations. We stayed in a 2 queen room with sofa. When we went to put the key in the door...the door was never fully shut. Later on we found out that if you just exit the room the door doesn't shut all the way you need to physically close the door or it will be left open. The sofa bed is very very uncomfortable - my kids couldn't sleep on it. The walls are paper thin in the hotel. You can hear the people walking down the halls #even with the tv on# and the people above us would walk back n forth which you can hear. I also heard some talking in one of the rooms.The staff is very friendly but when I needed extra pillows and bedding I went to the girl at the desk and she grabbed them from the back for me but I had to walk with them which wasn't easy. The pool is warm and big but it's hidden in the basement. I always feel like the pool is the best part of a hotel and not seeing it is a disappointment. Also, when you are in a pool, being able to look outside is always kinda nice, #especially when it's snowing#. It smelled a little like mildew when you go down there too. If you don't use the 1st elevator you won't get to the pool unless you take the stairs - we didn't know that because there were no signs so we went in the first available elevator and it never brought us to the pool until we went thru the door with stairs.

No complaints about the hotel. They really are trying to give to the client in regards to managers socials and bringing local talent in for dance and fun. Affordable and in ok shape for its age. Needs new contractors for snow removal. Very poor job on making the lot safe

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PoohTheWinner Second home in NY
Holiday Inn Express at Stony Brook is like second home to me. My dad and I stay here every time I visit NY and believe me, I visit NY very often. The staffs are super friendly and helpful. They are also very accommodative to requests. The breakfast choices are great and good fitness facility. The swimming pool is warm! Every stay here is a great feeling!
Keep up the great work Holiday Inn Express, Stony Brook!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Johnny j Service service service!
I recently stayed at this property on January 1st thru the 3rd. I must say the accommodations are nice. Having a pool was a huge plus and the breakfast was very nice. I was unfortunately in town for a funeral and also during a blizzard so needless to say it wasn't an ideal trip. What made my stay excellent and what would make me recommend this property was the level of hospitality and kindness shown by Tanya and Alyissa !!! These two went above and beyond to make sure my stay was as pleasant as possible and I was as comfortable as could be. I was impressed greatly by the understanding these ladies have of hospitality and when ever I come back to Long Island this property will be my destination. Once again thank you ladies for making a tough trip that much easier.

This hotel meets all expectations when looking for a home away from home. The staff was very friendly and accommodating when we checked in. The lobby and breakfast area was pleasing the the eye and comfortable, everything within reach. I especially loved the room, though only a king size bed and basic accommodations, the size of the room was perfect. The bed was so comfortable, it made me feel right at home. Soft, clean, warm and spacious.. Overall, I will return to this hotel for future business and pleasure. I give it a thumbs up!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roseto Important part of our trip
Our family, from PA, was visiting our son on Long Island for Thanksgiving. He is in the final weeks of his training to become a Marine. This was an emotional trip for us. The days were all long as we were going non-stop for four days trying to fit in as much family time as we could. We would come back to the hotel room at the end of the day and just drop; happily.
The room was clean, beds comfy. Friendly staff, excellent free breakfast. The hotel was bustling with family get-togethers! It was a very nice experience for our family. Absolutely no complaints.
We've taken numerous vacations/trips that have required hotel stays. No matter how well planned our trips are, if we don't/can't sleep well because of a bad hotel situation, our trip will be negatively affected.
Thank you so much to the staff at the Stony Brook, NY Holiday Inn Express for giving my family a completely comfortable, worry-free stay at a time when our family certainly did not need to stress about hotel issues!
I'm sure we will be back to Stony Brook. And when we are, its good to know the issue of where to stay is now a non-issue!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Samantha456 Pull-out Couch was horrible
I've never slept on a pull-out couch where I actually felt all the bed springs. There was only a thin layer of fabric covering the metal springs. It was OK when sleeping on my back, but was horrible when on my side. Even though I had a reservation for 3 people, there was no bedding in the room for the couch and no extra blankets. I called the front desk and they said housekeeping was gone for the day so I had to pick-up the bedding myself, which was a hassle. When I went downstairs, there was someone that worked at the hotel that was talking to the person at the front desk. There is no reason that person couldn't have brought up the linens. While the people at the front desk were nice, I was surprised by the poor quality of service and couch-bed comfort. On the positive side, the bedroom, livingroom and bathroom were large, so it was comfortable for three people. Also the breakfast was pretty good.

The accommodations were excellent. I had requested adjoining rooms and the staff was able to meet my needs perfectly. The service was great and the stay was comfortable. I plan to stay here again when ever I am in the area overnight.

The only less than excellent rating I gave is because my girlfriend woke up a little stiff. She said she needed pillows that are a bit more firm. Myself...slept like a baby!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ShuffleBe Noisy and Crowded with Groups
There werre too many groups staying at the same hotel which made the lobby, eating area and parking facility crowded, noisy and congested. In addition, late at night, people were running down the hallways, shouting and knocking on doors which needlessly woke us up. Finally, the TV cable service was not working and we experienced repeated failed attempts to watch CNN news.
