Booked the Danford hotel to accommodate us for a one night stay while we visited friends at Stony Brook to see a football game. Hotel seems to have just been remodeled and the room was very nice.

I grew up in Port Jefferson and Danfords was always part of the backdrop of my youth. With my childhood home less than a mile away, I had never had a reason to go inside the hotel let alone stay there. I'm 32 now. Recently my father, now 65 and living alone in that same home, almost died out of... More

Great! The sales associates and banquet wait staff are very, very professional, especially dealing with Vicki and how the room was to be set up. Fabulous job in overseeing everything, including last minute changes, additions to the numbers of guests, special requests for décor and flowers....nothing was a problem!

Spent our 22nd wedding anniversary here this past weekend. The room was very spacious and clean, had a beautiful view of the sound.

The property consists of several buildings linked by a walkway and is beautifully situated at the Port Jefferson harbor. We were pleasantly surprised to have a spacious room with a large balcony and great view of the harbor. Everything was very clean.

From the moment I got engaged, I imagined more of an oversized dinner party than a traditional wedding. Although we didn't not have a huge guest list (84 people), I found out quickly that we were too large of a group for the private room in a nice restaurant and not big enough to close a restaurant.
