4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The rooms are spacious and clean, even if outdated. It really doesn't matter because you shouldn't be spending much time in the room, but if you have a balcony, you can even see the ocean. Having a fridge is also great so you can bring drinks and food to the beach, which is right across the street. Since it's right... More

Stayed at the sands for four days, perfect location and adequate sized room. Beach is right across the street. Very old decor and carpet in a beach town doesn't make sense. What really made the experience a bad one is the mgmt. on the last day of checkout my friend and I checked out and then went for a coffee.... More

The Sands Motel in Montauk, NY is near (walking distance) lots of great restaurants and shopping, and only a 10-15 minutes drive to Gosman's dock. It is across the street from a mini-golf place and half a block away from a supermarket. The public beach is across the road and is very clean and beautiful. The pool was very clean... More

We spent the weekend at the Sands during Montauk Music Festival. This is a typical Montauk hotel. The rooms are neat and clean but somewhat old - Except for the bathroom which was recently updated and very nice. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of room in our "ocean view suite". There was a nice little sun deck... More

Suz3032 - thank you for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We work very hard to make sure that our rooms are extremely clean for our guests to enjoy. Just as a piece of information, if you are looking for the very private balcony - that would be in our suites where you have a... More

We went to Montauk with friends this past August, they chose this place and have stayed their numerous times before, I however was a little hesitant. However when we got there, I was impressed with how clean it was, and the location was perfect, as you could walk to the downtown area so easily. This came in handy since we... More

I stayed at the Sands for 1 night. I like this hotel because they did not have a two night minimum. The room was very clean and the receptionist was very pleasant. It was a short walk to the beach. The price was reasonable but I did stay off season. I would stay again.

My wife and I came to town early and decided to stay here for one night because our real hotel was not ready on time. We were desperate so we just went ahead and paid the insanely high rate for a suite (we were told it was the only room available...which it clearly was not), thinking it's on the beach... More

Dear Robert L, It seems, seeing that you are from the same town and have the same last initial, that your wife also wrote a previous review. As was previously explained, you desperately wanted a room at 8 o'clock in the morning on a Sunday. It was explained to you that the only room available was a suite but you... More
