A few weeks ago I traveled to NY and landed by chance at the Inn at Great Neck. I believe the way I found the hotel was Trip Advisor, although I booked direct.
I have to say after a long flight it was more then a pleasant surprise. I felt like a million bucks after a few nights at this hotel.
Great neck itself is an ultra convenient place in itself. The LIRR takes you into the city in about a half an hour which is nice because your in the suburbs and in the blink of an eye your in NYC. Another advantage I found nice was how many stores and restaurants you have within a few blocks walking distance of the hotel and Great Neck in general.
I have to mention Kensington, the sandwiches are on the money. I also hit up Starbucks for a little coffee at the beginning of my day, plus a few other places for bagels, etc.
Back to the hotel. I am a picky person. If it’s not 100% clean and comfortable, I may bear it but I won’t like it.
I’ve been to Great Neck numerous times in the past and I never knew this hotel existed, not that I was looking for hotels when I lived about a half hour away.
With that being said, if I knew about the Inn at Great Neck I would have stayed there before, regardless how close I used to live.
The bathrooms were cleaner then my bathroom at home. The furniture was clean and comfortable and the bed was perfect. The staff was friendly and professional.
I am writing this article because I think the Inn at Great Neck is a gem and I want to share it. They have absolutely no idea who I am besides the fact that I asked permission to use some of their photos for the post.
All in all I was in two separate rooms for three nights total. And of course the Internet worked perfectly in both the rooms I stayed or I wouldn’t be able to write a stellar review. I can’t speak for all the rooms, but the web was rocking in room 206.
If you are looking for a hotel on the North Shore of Long Island I recommend the Inn at Great Neck. In total the hotel has 85 rooms plus a meeting and banquet event space that accommodates up to 200 guests.
