Definitely 4/5 stars
Posted Oct 21, 2016
we stayed just for one night to attend a funeral in town, so our minds were on other things. I chose the hotel for convenience/price, and we weren't prepared to enjoy the experience as much as we did. there's free wi-fi access throughout, no passwords required, free super-fast computers available for free in the lobby, and more device ports/hook-ups in the room than the 3 of us could use. The room was luxe, almost european, with high-end finishes. our staff interaction was limited to check-in.out, but we had no complaints. the free continental breakfast included eggs, sausages, pancakes, oatmeal, etc. I didn't try it, but our travelling companion said that the quality/taste of the food was first-rate. the hotel has a pool, and the aquarium is directly next door, both great features for families with small kids. the hotel's in the heart of the historic down-town Riverhead, and we passed a lot of cute local-owned shops and restaurants on our way in and leaving. I wish we'd had time to stop and see more. I highly recommend an off-menu burger at "Cliff's Rendezvous" bar/restaurant a block away.
