Re: ***Official Jones Beach (Wantagh, NY) 2012***
If your looking for a reputable, decent quality hotel, and you can spare the cash, I would reccommend the Mariott in Uniondale. It is next to Nassau Coliseum.
Long Island Marriott
101 James Doolittle Boulevard
Uniondale, New York 11553 USA
In 2009 alot of people didnt want to pay that much, so I posted some other hotels that were near the 2 main access points of the venue, the Meadowbrook and Wantagh Parkways. These are all within 15 minutes of Jones Beach. I pass most of them on a daily basis, they all seem fine.
Coliseum Motor Inn
1650 Hempstead Turnpike
East Meadow, New York 11554
^^Right near the entrance to Meadowbrook prkwy, quick and easy trip. Hempstead turnpike is also one of the largest roads on Long Island, so if you are looking for things to do aside from the show, this is a good location. Plenty of food, Nassau Coliseum is right there, along with Hofstra, and Eisenhower park.
369 OLD COUNTRY ROAD
CARLE PLACE, NY 11514 UNITED STATES
^^^This one is also near the entrance of the Meadowbrook, just a little further north. Probably an extra 2 minute drive, but I think it might be a better location. There are 2 malls, one being Roosevelt field, one of the largest in America within 5 minutes of the hotel, along with plenty of Restaurants and still within 5 minutes of Eisenhower park if your an outdoor person.
Here are a few other ones, I don't know much about them, they are still relatively close, maybe theyre cheaper.
Long Island Red Roof Inn
699 Dibblee Drive
Westbury, NY 11590
4107 Hempstead Turnpike
Bethpage, NY 11714 US
Econo Lodge Hicksville
429 Duffy Ave
Hicksville, NY 11801
