In a quiet, residential neighborhood, with a park next door with a bike path to Jones Beach, and a restaurant downstairs. The room was clean, but basic. No chairs, just two beds and bath, microwave and fridge, no coffee maker. There is also no coffee or breakfast of any kind, you have to go to the nearby places to get a coffee or anything. But the staff is friendly and the Italian restaurant convenient and good.

Thank you for the feedback. We do offer coffee makers upon request in rooms without one and we do make coffee every morning in the restauarant for the guests. I do apologize you were not aware. Breakfast is coming soon so maybe on your next stay you will feel more at home!

It took forever for them to check us in. About 15 minutes after we already set it up through Travelocity. Then the first room was hot and stifling.... no AC no fans. Then I laid down on the bed and it smelled like ASS (literally) so I lifted up the blanket and the sheet had a huge orange stain on it! It was disgusting! You can tell the sheets and blankets had not been changed! The guy was nice enough to switch rooms for us. The next room was nicer and bigger but we only had ONE washcloth to share..... it kinda gives you a bed and breakfast Vibe. Not really a hotel but an inn. Seems to be family owned.

Last minute, quick trip on a very limtied budget

Pros: all
Cons: shower size
Location: not a clue. 10 minutes from Amityville Horror House!
The Jones Beach Inn was a very cool hotel, great location and lots of history, We arrived while the entertainment was just ending in the restaurant and it was like a step back in time. Staff was very friendly and we slept like babies. It's certainly not a fancy chain with all the newest everything, but well worth the price and Manny was a dream

Good location, needs to be updated

Pros: The location is charming.
Cons: Repair loose fixtures in the bathroom sink. Upgrade carpets and paint. Revise and maintain heating and cooling systems.
This hotel is in a transition. A lot of freshening up needs to happen from the paint on the walls to the threadbare rugs. The heating and cooling systems along with loose plumbing fixtures in the bathroom need to be addressed. The rooms itself are small and pleasant enough. The staff are friendly. A lot of basic upgrades need to happen though.

Close to the beach and reasonably priced

It was a last minute decision and a local motel choice.

Hotel close to family

Pros: The staff were able to provide use good service and items we needed
Cons: Clean the carpets or replace them and a fresh coat of paint
Location: Many people staying at the hotel seemed to take advantage of the near by beach, Jones Beach. We were close to all of the locations we needed to visit
We had a death in the family so we needed to be near the church for the mass was early in the morning the next day. We decided on this hotel due to the photos and ratings that were provided. We appreciated the staff for they allowed us to check in early to prepare ourselves for the evening viewing. The sheets were clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean as well. We also appreciated that we were provided a queen size bed and an additional single bed. We ended up needing to use the additional bed for an unexpected relative to provide a place to sleep. The room we stayed in show evidence that there was a recent water problem on the ceiling, the repairs were made but the walls and ceilings were not repainted. The hotel itself seems to need new carpets or the current carpets need to be cleaned. The stairs were rather narrow which reflected the age of the building. I would have liked the opportunity to visit the restaurant that is attached to the hotel. It appeared to be a nice place to eat. The staff provided use with the items that we needed such as an ironing board, iron and blow dryer. Overall for the money we paid the hotel provided us with our needs at a time when we were morning the loss of a close relative.

Going to a show or visiting Jones Beach??

Pros: It's great location when seeing a show at Jones Beach or just visiting the south shore of Long Island.
This hotel is very close to Jones Beach and nicely placed in a residential area just off of the highway. It is mom and pop, so don't expect a commercial hotel. It is more like staying at a friend/family's house. It is also super close to The Brokerage comedy club. Staff is super helpful and again...the best location for those seeing a show at Jones Beach.
