This is our second year in Montauk and don't think we will return for our third year to this hotel. We had a friend and his cousin fly in from Manhattan for just the day to the local air strip so our party of 8 turned to be a party of 10. Management made a stink and made our company... More

My husband and I have been staying at the Sands for over 10 years. It has so many wonderful memories so we keep going back. The pool is great rooms updated and close to everything. The owners take great care of the property. See you next year!!!!

When I'm in Montauk, i's all about the beach. The Sands is literally acorss the street from one of the nicest stretches of beach in town. Because local parking is limited, the beach gets less crowded even during busy weekends. "Downtown" Montauk is a short stroll away. IGA is even closer. The rooms are clean and fresh. The "Sloppy Tuna",... More

Tiny bathrooms and out dated rooms - this is a true Motel but also very clean. I actually love the location and the owners and since we do not spend much time in the rooms in Montauk as there is SO much to do - these accommodations work just fine! Pool, grounds and rooms are well kept and directly across... More

Our family has been coming to the Sands for many years. Family run & room recently renovated and always clean and well cared for. Great location: close to mini-golf and town. Best pool in Montauk which is always clean. Great beach just across the street that's not too crowded.

We recently stayed here for a 3 night stay. We had a queen size room on the ground floor. Like most places in Montauk, the room was dated and small, no frills. It was very clean in the room and around the property. Great location directly across the street from a fairly uncrowded part of the beach, next door to... More

My husband and 2 small children just returned from a 5 day stay here. This year was even better than the last. Very friendly staff, convenient location, great property. You really can't ask for more with this motel. I highly recommend.

The sands motel is located very central in montauk. Just across street from beach access. Room was clean, but very small. Bathroom was so small I don't know if someone over 200 lbs could get to toilet. Bed was full size and not most comfy, we are used to king bed. There is a pool and swings for families with... More

I am writing to review that not only did I stay with Sands last year, but also have just booked a trip for this upcoming August again, bringing friends along. I also have many friends that stay here every year. For those who have never been to Montauk, it is all about location. There is no better feeling than being... More

I booked this place for the weekend since we were coming to Montauk for a bday party. I had to call them to book and then had to mail a check to reserve the room since they say they don't take credit cards. Weird, but fine. We got a receipt in the mail and a note that said to call... More
