Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TonyR99 But the Wifi...
Hotel was good and offered a few things most HIE hotels don't. I travel every week and rely on the WiFi for doing work at night. The Wifi signal was not good and keep dropping very low resulting in kicking me off my VPN connection. The front desk didn't seem to care after a few calls to the front desk. Very frustrating. Not a good value for the price.

This HIExpress (StonyBrook, NY) is in a good location.
It is a nice and clean facility. The staff is friendly and helpful. We have stayed here a number of times, and will stay here again in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carrie28 Great visit to Stonybrook
We were visiting Stonybrook with our family. The hotel was clean, up to date, and comfortable. We were able to visit the major attractions such as the Long Island Museum and the wetlands tour with help from the hotel shuttle. The breakfast was complete with both hot and cold choices. We enjoyed our stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moma B good service
After having spent several nights in Manhattan where there is a premium price on real estate, this size of this hotel and the room itself was very nice.
The complementary breakfast was very nice. Plenty of variety of the foods.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GrannieOnTheGo Family Funeral Stay
Our family stayed at this property to gather from all over the country for our mother's funeral and attend a catered-in luncheon in one of the available large, hotel conference rooms.
Generally, the staff were very supportive of our needs, and allowed us the freedom to use the common areas for our process. The staff supported the caterers' needs for pre-set of the conference room for our luncheon.
There were a few timing difficulties with the check-out policy.
We needed to leave the hotel to travel to the funeral site around 9 a.m. to be on time for the funeral, then return for our casual luncheon at the hotel. Since the return to the hotel was well after noon time, the check-out policy put extra stress on our family's stay there. Upon return to the hotel, after the funeral, we all had need to use our rooms to change into casual clothes, pack, and check out, then attend our luncheon.
Because of this forced check-out, many of us had to get up extra early to pack, eat a quick breakfast, and check out at 9 a.m., instead. Upon return we had to use the lobby rest rooms to change and prepare for the luncheon. The luncheon itself was delayed because many of our family did not check out early, and had to go through the pack-up and check-out process before the luncheon.
The late setup of our Memorial table and the delay for the family to eat the food was difficult for the elderly attendees and the children. We began the luncheon around 1:30 p.m.
We used the conference room until about 3 p.m., but many of the family had to leave by 2:30 p.m. before the luncheon was over in order to travel home.
With the overall tone of grief, it was stressful to have so many forced to focus on check- out either before we arrived back from the funeral or quickly upon return from the funeral, and then rush the shortened luncheon and say our good-byes to family we hadn't seen in a year. It was my understanding that 2 p.m. was the late check-out policy given to our family. We were surprised this was not the case. The staff did their best to accommodate us with the policies given. Our circumstances were unusual for the hotel's normal happy occasions.
