The quaint rooms, interior, and restaurant were all very cozy and inviting. This historic hotel is located in the heart of the village of Port Jefferson (or Port Jeff) which was settled in the 17th century. With a marina and pretty water views, this hotel is a great location for special events as well. The food in Wave restaurant was...

I checked in and the room charges were covered by my host but I was asked for a credit card to cover incidental charges, a common practice by hotels. Next morning my credit card company informed me that a pending $100 charge had been received by them from this hotel At 9 am I checked out and informed the front...

Dear downunderyankee, I was disappointed reading your review and apologize for your experience. As you stated, it is common industry practice to take an "authorization" for incidentals upon arrival, however, it is a authorization - not a charge. I believe you may have used a debit card instead of credit card. Debit cards have different banking policies from credit cards...

We love to stay here when we visit family on Long Island. It's right next to the Ferry which makes it incredibly convenient and it's in the center of Port Jefferson, walking distance from all the cute shops and restaurants in town, as well as right on the waterfront. In winter, there's a cozy fireplace in the lobby. The rooms...

To stay in PJ you have no other options but to stay here. Once you spend a night here you won't consider another PJ hotel. Friendly and accommodating staff, central location and a wonderful restaurant and bar on the premises. What else do you need?

This was probably the hardest review I have ever had to write. Not because it was a bad experience but there were so many variables. Maybe I should have gone in the Spring instead.
