Staff is very friendly. Walk across to the street to the beach, no hassle with parking passes, or use the pool. Maid service excellent and friendly. Can... More

Staff (Susan) was mean and obnoxious. If you want to be spied on then go. Like being in a prison, you can't even get out of your car to check in and she's standing at your car door making sure you are a guest. Filthy disgusting sheets wallpaper hanging off the wall.The only good thing about this hotel is the... More

Myself, my husband and our 1 year old recently stayed here for 3 nights. Our entire stay was excellent! You can't beat the location - right on the beach and a short walk to the village. We stayed in 2 different rooms due to adding an extra night last minute. The first room was very clean, bed was comfortable and... More

The rooms are spacious and clean, even if outdated.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
