My husband and I stayed at the motel for 2 nights in May while touring in the Hamptons. The rooms are small but extremely clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. Our room was in a building that directly faced the water. It was a lovely view. Penny, the owner, was especially helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay at... More

I can't believe I haven't written this sooner, but I LOVED my stay here this summer! What a charming place. I've always wanted to go to the Hamptons, but not break the bank staying there!! This is what I would call a cozy roadside motel!!! But right across the street from the ocean!!! Seriously, I was able to lay in... More

When we arrived at Ocean View Terrace Motel, we had to phone to let them know we were there. If you stood on your tip toes and craned your neck...there was a narrow view of the ocean. The room itself was clean. It had a wee porch/balcony for sitting outside. Altho they knew we were coming, the chairs on the... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights. Our best friend's daughter was getting married in the Hamptons, so some of her family and friends stayed here as well. What a wonderful stay! It was so nice to walk a few doors down and hang out with each other on our little porches, chit chat, and enjoy the beautiful... More

We recently attended a wedding in Hampton Bays and so we stayed at the motel. The rooms were clean and comfortable, although ours was a bit noisy (footsteps in the adjacent room mostly). The owners were very warm and welcoming, and Penelope was even willing to interrupt a call from her grandson to take a pic of my wife Alison... More

First up, we were able to secure a last minute booking to escape to craziness of Brooklyn. We were impressed with being able to have a small kitchenette in the room which was a bonus. The views were great and we were a bike ride from some amazing beaches. The best part of our stay was the amazing hospitality of... More

A five star motel with a five star restaurant next door. Very comfortable and private with excellent housekeeping. Owners are very polite and friendly with the best interests of the customer at heart. George Leiper Jr

This is one of the less expensive places for a summer weekend stay, and you do get what you pay for. Room is small, bed is small, but the A/C works (although it is loud). My impression is that very lkittle has changed here over the years. Free wi-fi a plus.

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
