No one should be expecting the amenities and attention to detail of a 5-star hotel or even full-service Marriott, Hyatt, or Hilton, but this was a pleasant overnight stay when we were guests at a wedding in Stony Brook. Compared with other middle-of-the-road, inexpensive hotels, this Holiday Inn Express was cleaner, more spacious, and friendlier than most we've stayed in....

I stayed here just one night while on business. I couldn't have picked a better place! I'm a light sleeper, so I asked for a quiet room. My room was on an upper floor facing the back, with no traffic or parking noise. The a/c unit made some noise, but ear plugs took care of it. The curtains were heavy...

The staff was very friendly, the room clean, the breakfast in the am was also very good, plenty of everything. Two things that bothered us was how loud the air was in the room and also the bathroom floor gets very slippery from the mist from the shower. We will say here again when in the area

Just stayed one night but stay was totally pleasant. Breakfast was bountiful but there was no yogurt available, most of the food was pretty high calorie. Large rooms with refrigerator. Bed was comfortable, shower pressure was lacking and if you need extra towels make sure to ask as thee are only two in the room.
