Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ImSpecial Wonderful Experience
This hotel was picked for us by the committee handling the reunion party and we could not have done better. Ease in making the reservation, check-in, check-out were outstanding. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who is going to be in the Stony Brook and surrounding areas.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NCMom222 A very nice hotel
I stayed two nights on a weekend. I was greeted with a gift bag containing water and chips - a nice touch. The room, bed, bathroom were clean and nice. The bathroom toiletries very nice. I didn't watch tv or use the internet so cannot comment on those. I only grabbed fruit for breakfast but they had what I wanted. The grounds were very nice with plenty of space and tennis courts. I didn't use the fitness room or pool. The room was very quiet and had nice curtains that provided good coverage at night. Every staff member I encountered was very keen to provide assistance. The heating/cooling was good. Overall much nicer than I had expected of an "Express" hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynne27 Great experience!
Comfortable bed, quiet, and clean!
Outdoor grounds are beautiful! I loved relaxing outside. Outdoor activity opportunities for all ages! Appreciated access to two computers and free printing in the bussiness room. Breakfast selection was above average. All staff were very helpful and nice. Greatly appreciated the shuttle service also!!
I stayed one night in September. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in the area!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JulieV Fire alarm going off/AC not working well
They let me check in early which was nice. We got to the room, the couch smelled like smoke (non smoking room), but the rest of the room was fine. I couldn't get the AC unit to go below 72. It keep shutting off, it got very stuffy at night. The worst part was a fire alarm went off next door, at 6am, I look out in the hall, no one is there. I call down to the desk, she said they were working on it, I ask if it was a real fire or a malfunction, she doesn't know, she's just the front desk clerk. I called back 20 minutes later, I now have a splitting headache. She says a maintenance man is on is way, he will be there soon. It was finally shut off at 6:30, I couldn't go back to sleep. We paid almost $200 for this room, I called the Stony Brook hotel to request a refund, left a voice mail, she never called back. I called corporate, they gave me $40 credit and said I would hear from the manager of the hotel, I still haven't heard from her.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HatzMom74 Spacious, clean and friendly.
I've read reviews prior to my stay, so I was expecting a good experience. It turned to be a great quality stay with a surprise gift. Warm indoor pool was a big plus. This hotel is family friendly, I traveled with my 3 kids.
Five star for clean bathrooms, since a lot of places struggles with that. I recommend it to everyone.

We were in NY for our son's wedding and stayed with you the entire week. I have NEVER been to any hotel that was cleaner and smelled so good! Everything looked fresh and new. Everything worked! Your housekeeping staff did such a great job and EVERY member of the staff was as friendly as us southerners! We were impressed.

I would recommend cleaning behind the doors a little more frequently. The heated pool was a great benefit after driving for 2 days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patti727 Really nice place to stay!
My husband and I stayed there one night for our son's wedding (at another venue). The staff was wonderful, especially Jackie K. She made sure that our stay was great! The hotel itself is really nice, the room was clean and very comfortable. We also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast on Sunday morning.

I took my daughter and two friends to Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook to celebrate her 13th birthday. I chose this hotel because of the pool and closeness to restaurants. We were cheerfully welcomed and checked in quickly. The room as clean and in order. Overall we had a great night. My only two small complaints a. not enough towels in the pool area b. the door connecting the rooms we not able to properly close tight.

My wife and I had an excellent stay at this Holiday Inn Express. This is the third time we have stayed here and each and everyone of our visits has been excellent.
We always recommend this location to friends who visit the part of Long Island.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KK1952 Noisy Air conditioner
Air conditioner was loud and vent whistled..my husband noticed that they were all noisy so we did not request a change in our room..I checked out and mentioned it to the front desk..I have another concern ...when I checked out..I was happy to see that my bill was exactly as expected...but when I got home I noticed charges of over $500.00 on my charge card....when I called about it I was told they were authorized charges for "incidentals"..but no one would tell me what those incidentals actually were..I asked to speak to the manager and was told no one was available because it was a week-end....I asked the manager to call me on Monday....haven't heard from anyone...I have checked my account since and all is correct..but my concern is that I traveled another 1000 miles home ..thinking had money for another room ..gas and any emergency.....but your hotel had taken a portion of my available credit and never informed when I checked out. In fact no one told me anything when I checked in.....or made the reservation weeks ago....No one mentioned anything about charges for items other than the room and taxes, etc. ..Please explain..

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Montreaveller Bad room, bad internet
My room was on second floor near the stairway.
All evening and part of night guests were using the stairway which resulted in the door slamming right next to my room and disturbed my sleep big time.
I had to work using the internet which I've been unable to due to the ultra poor internet connection. I had to use data from my cell roaming which resulted in a 500$ bill.
I asked the front desk if they could help me with the internet connection to which I was answered "I will ask to reset the router but if it doesn't work there's nothing I can do".
When I rent an hotel room with free internet there are two main reasons for it:
1- To sleep well
2- To have internet access
In both cases the services weren't there but the high tagged room price was...

the hotel was extremely clean. they were cleaning the floors wiping the widows not a piece of litter on the grounds which were beautifully landscaped the pond area in the front was a welcome sight to come back to after a hectic day on the island the bathroom was spotless not a mark on the shower curtain not a speck of anything on the bathtub grout. pillows were marked soft and firm the overall stay was pleasant and i would not hesitate to return

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Marc52 nice hotel, bed too firm
The Hotel was very nice with one major problem. The bed was so hard that I had to sleep on top of a folded in half comforter during my stay. I asked the desk clerk if there were any thicker mattress pads available. She said she didn't think so but would write the request down. I did not receive any follow up. I stay at Holiday Inn properties on a regular basis for work and have never experienced a bed this firm.

I am a retired sales rep. and have stayed at many Holiday Inns over the years, and NEVER had a problem.This night i could not sleep, so I went to the Lobby to read tha newspaper.There were SEVEN DRUNKS from a wedding there .They were LOUD ROUDY VOULGER. - The Desk Clerk ignored them, and sent a male employee over to where I was sitting to ask if I WERE A GUEST OR A TRANSIT JUST HANGING OUT>. I showed my room key and told her she needs to get her priorites in order. I went back to my room . In the morning I told the manager what had happened unknown99 in room117

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EarthLover AS ALWAYS, GREAT HIE STAY
As always our stay at the HIE was wonderful. The staff, the location, and the room were all great. The only thing about this hotel that was odd, was there were no towel racks in the bathroom. No place to hang towels. We stayed in room 614, which was a suite. The BR itself did not have too much wall space, but there was a dressing area with plenty of wall space. A couple or towel racks would fit perfectly in that area.
I was disappointed that there were no recyclable cans in the room for all the recyclable items we generated in the 11 days we were there. We left those items on the counter and just hoped that the hotel had a recycling program.
Other than that, we hope to return to Long Island next summer and definitely will return to the HIE for our stay.

We were bringing our daughter to look at Stony Brook University and this hotel was exactly what we were looking for. The location was great and the service couldn't have been better. The hotel was very clean and the beds very comfortable. Our only complaint would be that the air conditioner in the room was very loud, otherwise our stay was great! I would definately recommend staying at this hotel. ,
