I stayed 3 days in January 2015. The rooms are very clean and the price was great. It's not on the beach but is about a block away. Hotels are much more expensive on the water. I'm going to return next year. Check it out!

We stayed at Daunts Albatross for two nights recently. The family that runs the place is so nice, friendly, and helpful. It is not the most modern motel, but it's a laid back beach town, so fits in perfectly. It's a great location and reasonably priced.

This December was my 4th stay at the Albatross. Dollar for dollar- this is the best value in Montauk Village.... All visits were off season, so sadly I cannot comment on what looks like an awesome pool.... I stayed in a dog friendly room which is one of the smaller rooms. It was nice enough- nothing fancy but more than... More

This motel gave me such a wonderful summer experience. Aside from the fact that the staff were so welcoming and accommodating, there was also a complimentary breakfast in the morning served by the lovely Mary and VIcky, and it was a stone throw away from the beautiful beach! I hadn't been able to bring beach chairs, and the hotel supplied... More

Montauk is very quiet and peaceful in the colder weather. We went on a outdoor photography expedition. Bring warm clothes and extra thermoses of coffee. (and food for the room-not everything is open off-season). Indoors the heating in the room was fine. Good beds, clean room, nice staff. And a well stocked kitchenette (Thanks for the corkscrew). The place met... More

The staff is competent and always helpful. The rooms are clean and neat with a small refrigerator in the single-room occupancy. If there is a problem, someone will promptly come to help. The motel is professionally run at the highest standards. We always go to the Daunt`s Albatross.

The check in/out was stress free. The staff was courteous and friendly. The room, however was another story. The room was very clean and that is the only positive thing I can say. It was small and cold as heck. Granted my stay took place in December but they knew it would be occupied they could have at least turned... More

We decided to stay here NYE to attend a party a few miles down the street at a resort far too costly for us to stay. The gentleman at check-in was very pleasant and accommodating. Upon entering our room, it was freezing, but it did eventually heat up. And it was clean. Room is very rustic, in other words, very... More

I stayed at Daunt's Albatross in the off season. The location was great and the price was also. The Staff was very accessible and friendly. The most amazing part was they gave me one of the best rooms for no increase in price ! One with a balcony with the Ocean in view and a little kitchenette. It was perfect... More

We enjoyed staying at the hotel which is next to the sea and near to the montauk lighthouse. We used the BBQ grills that were provided and relaxed in the yard. We got to pick out videos to watch and watch movies on HBO.
