Commack Motor Inn

On November 14, 2006, radio station WBLI rated the Commack Motor Inn
second of the seven wonders of Long Island,
just behind the Flanders Duck and ahead of the Montauk Lighthouse.

The Commack Motor Inn gained notoriety by its advertisements on late night television and radio,
extolling "the perfect romantic getaway", its "plush beds",
"mirror ball disco room" and "heart-shaped love tubs".
By the 1980s, the Commack Motor Inn had become such an accepted part of Long Island life,
that its gift certificates were prizes at social clubs.
In a 1994 interview, actress Rosie O'Donnell recounted
"That's where everyone in high school went to have their first sexual experience".
The song "Wannabe Gangster" by alternative rock band Wheatus mentions going "Back to Commack".
