This hotel does NOT deserve the price tag it comes with. I booked a bi-level junior suite for a pricey $280 per night and this is what I received: * A shower that ran freezing then scalding while you were trying to use it * An air-conditioner that made such a horrendous noise when it was switched on that we...

We booked a room on the water but instead are in an old building a block and a half from the water. We are on the third floor and there is no elevator. We were charged for parking but there are no spots available. The staff is clueless. Avoid this hotel.

Dear Karen D., Thank you for being our guest. Upon reviewing your reservation you booked a Village View King room. The room you stayed in the night in is in our Jetty building and has a view of the Port Jefferson Village. While we do have many rooms that overlook the Harbor, this is not what you reserved. Since you...

Had brunch there today. $300/4 people with tip. Wait staff was uninterested, slow & didn't appear to want to be there. Price appeared to have been raised for Easter. Food, was at best, adequate. Have never been to Sunday brunch were a Bloody Mary or Mimosa were not part of the fixed price. Will not go there again. Supper Inn,...

The location is beautiful, the parking is terrible especially since we had to move the car a couple of times. However you can purchase a parking tag which helped some. We requested an early check-in. Didn't happen, but they had 5 weddings over the same weekend so it was very busy. Ate in the dining room, spectacular view of the...

Dear Mary M., Thank you for being our guest and for the review. We are glad you had a great weekend.

Having been residents of Long Island in the late 90's/early 2000's, my family ate regularly at Danfords so we decided to stay there this week on a three night trip down memory lane. It is also worth noting that I stay at hotels over 150 nights a year and have never given a negative TA review. Danfords is beautifully situated...

We had a group of about 40 executives in an offsite company meeting at Danford's last week. The accommodations were perfect for our team which consisted of a mix of local residents and others traveling from across the country who were able to get lodging here as well. The meeting room on the 2nd floor was professional and perfect for...

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.

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...
