The staff is very attentive & always has a helpful suggestion or solution to any question I have. Thank you all so very much for keeping this wonderful place thriving & I'm looking forward to many more years to come... More

I rediscovered OVT during the summer of 2013 many years after my parents spent their summers there. After my wife and I stayed there for a weekend in early July we fell in love with the place and booked every remaining weekend for the balance of the summer. The grounds, pool, and rooms are immaculate, the beds comfortable, and the... More

My spouse and I eloped in November 2013 and stayed at the Ocean View. Everyone was tremendously kind to us. When I mentioned that it was our honeymoon, we received an upgrade to a lovely suite with a full kitchen and enormous whirlpool tub. The bed was very comfortable and everything was neat and clean. We both have a lot... More

I'm over the moon that we could be a part of your wedding adventure, Rose. There's nothing better than hearing our suite helped create an amazing time for you and your spouse. I know it's been a year, but congratulations and we can't wait to see you again soon! Hope you two are doing well, Penelope, Owner More

I stayed there for the entire winter season way back in 1972. Only $80.00 per month and they even cleaned the room every week. Those were the days. I still ride by the area along the bay and the place still looks the same.

We went to the Hamptons for 3 nights as a break from NY city and we had a great time at the Ocean View Terrace Motel. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable so we slept well. There is some traffic noise but we didn't find it a problem. The hosts were fantastic. They gave us a... More

This place is fine for what it is - a motel - but very overpriced. We stayed 2 nights in September 2013 and paid over $300 per night. Rooms are fine - clean, bed comfortable - but very basic (very simple bathroom, minimal toiletries provided, small towels, no tea). The motel is not within walking distance of anything (and if...

Thank you for your review, but there are a few discrepancies in it that I needed to respond to. First one is our pricing which is fair in regards to the service we provide and the pricing of our neighboring motels. Also the price of $275 per night plus taxes is for a weekend stay which is higher than the... More

Found this Glorious place on trip advisor. Stayed in a room with two large beds, kitchen area, with fridge with ice, with pots, pans dishes, coffee cups glasses, utencils, dish drainer and electric stove. We cooked dinners and ate both inside at the table and outside on the mini porch. Bathroom was spotless, and sheets were soft and clean, flatscreen... More

We are a family of 5 from the UK who have just spent 4 nights in Manhattan, this was a great place to relax and explore the Hamptons after a busy city break. We stayed in a 2 bedroomed suite with a sofa bed and some self catering facilities. The motel was clean, comfortable and had a lovely pool with... More

We spent one night here with two small children and would definitely recommend. We received excellent service especially on leaving when the owner organised our ferry trip (which we'd failed to book ) and recommended how to spend our day. The grounds are very nice - we enjoyed takeaway pizza on one of the picnic tables and the kids loved... More

We stayed overnight on July 23, 2013. Although it was a brief stay, it was a good one. Penny, the owner, could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Due to a clerical error, we were upgraded to a unit overlooking the bay. Penny was hard at work the entire time we were there. Her grandson was maintaining the property... More
