I am an optimistic individual so lets start with the staff. I was very happy with the staff. Everyone from the receptionist to the maintenance staff were very friendly and attentive. The pool and exercise room were very clean and $2.00 for the laundry was inexpensive. Wow! What a beautiful lobby with a stone fireplace and large screen tv's. There was a courtyard with seating and a gas bbq for your use. The free breakfast was normal for hotels. There was a large assortment of bread but the toaster was too big . A dish of plastic forks was nearby to help you remove the toast. I hope little children do not get the wrong idea about that scenario! I was very impressed about the hotel till I walked into the room and turned on the lights. The room was large with a big dome light in the kitchenette .There was an assortment of hopefully dead bugs in the light. There was I guess dead bug droppings in the empty kitchen draws and the wine glasses had to be rewashed. I noticed that the only reading material in the room were some bibles. A hairdryer would have been nice but i could have called the front desk if I really needed it . I could live with the bugs but what got me upset was some sort of goo on the bathroom door. I was about to go to a wedding and got it on my pants. Nasty! I hope they really clean those rooms!!!!
The hotel overall was very nice. The common areas and outside grounds were above average. Check-in was a breeze and the front desk personnel were friendly. My two bedroom suite was a little smaller than I expected. The living area and kitchen were roomy but the bedrooms and bathrooms were small in comparison. The shower curtain in the master bath had an odor so I informed the front desk and housekeeping changed both shower curtains in 10 minutes! There were some minor signs of wear and tear - the master bath sink was cracked, the carpet was slightly worn and the living room sofa had a cushion that sunk in on one side.
Some folks may think this as strange but I often get a room at the Residence Inn just to get away. I live 6 Miles away. My kids love it my wife gets to rest a bit and I just like not being at home. The Residence Inn in Central Islip is a good get away for business or whatever else you may need a Hotel for. Their rooms are spacious from their studios to their Suites. I prefer the suites though. Great location near the Southern State Parkway. Nice indoor Pool. The only thing they lack is a nice bar/restaurant on their grounds. They may however fix that by putting one in the Marriott Courtyard that is being built next door. It is my understanding that it will have the same owners and an outdoor pool. TGIF, and Carrabas or very close but there is nothing like a short stroll back to your room after downing a meal and some drinks. Will be going again next month because my kids are begging me to go. Hopefully ill see you there.
Very nice modern RI conveniently located near the Court House in Central Islip. Friendly staff, clean comfortable room with free Wi-Fi and breakfast. Indoor pool, and workout room. Good value. Large parking area.
We arrived just after the snow blizzard. The staff clearly worked very hard to prepare the grounds. The breakfast offered many options. We love the one bedrooms with living rooms. Great room to stretch when traveling with children.
Hotel room and lobby are always clean the staff at check-in are always nice to deal with. I normally just grab coffee in the morning but staff offering breakfast keeps the space clean and inviting. Hotel is in a good location pretty close to a lot of good local LI restaurants, especially in Babylon.
Very pleasant at this hotel. Staff is vet accommodating, everything is very clean and well- maintained. Breakfast buffet is by far the best we've experienced. Will definitely stay here next time we visit the area.
This will be my hotel when visiting New York. Didn't want to stay in the city. The hotel is a 30 minute drive from JFK. We stayed in a king suite, room was spacious and extremely clean, Breakfast buffet had plenty of choices, Overall a great experience, very nice hotel we even did our laundry before we left. Hot
The suite itself was very nice, modern and big! The staff is very friendly and accomading. The hotel breakfast is pretty good and they have quite the selections, although I wish they would extend breakfast being that it ends at 9am on weekdays and 9:30 am on weekends.. another thing if you order delivery they make you go downstairs to pick it up which I've never had to do when I've stayed at other marriotts, sorta annoying if you ask me because I'm charged a delivery fee and I can't get my food delivered to my room.. other than that the rooms are very clean and housekeeping gave me extra towels when I asked for. Overall good hotel will definitely recommend
We are locals and stayed here while having some home repairs done. This place was awesome. Very friendly, accommodating and helpful staff. The room was nicely decorated and kept in great shape. Room cleaning was great. Would not hesitate to recommend this place .
