Once again we had a terrific time staying at Daunt's. Cindy and staff are wonderfully kind, helpful and make us feel very welcome. Daunt's has made some terrific upgrades to the pool area, which we really enjoyed. There is a very nice BBQ area now with pavers, and it looks great. Big tables. We are a group of four families,...

This review is for Albatross "East". We found this motel to be a great family friendly place. Both the courtyard and the 'backyard' provided good space for our large family gathering to BBQ or have breakfast. The continental free breakfast was very good and the staff was helpful. The swimming pool and area around it are brand new and beautiful,... More

Nice motel. Loved the outside patio. Has tables and a few BBQ's for you to cook on, But the room is a whole different story. For the amount of money that we paid for the double bedroom on the top deck, it was not worth it. Room is completely outdated. The doors need some WD-40 or something, because anytime I... More

Thank you for your review, we take customer feedback very seriously and will try to rectify all complaints. Unfortunately, the West building has been sold, but this opens up new beginnings at the Daunts Albatross as we fully concentrate on the main building. We renovated the pool in the spring and are currently installing a state of the art wifi... More

My partner and I searched for a motel to stay in early May with our little dog, and most places didn't really have great reviews in the Montauk area. We decided to book here because it allowed dogs and was close to the beach. We were a little worried about other reviewers noticing the rooms being run-down. We arrived really... More

My bf and I have stayed here twice. We chose this motel due to its location to the beach and being kitty friendly. The room itself is not bad. A little outdated, but always clean. We actually got the same room this past weekend that we did several years ago when we stayed here. The bathroom is another story. The... More

Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed the customer service and the cleanliness of the room. We either have a deadbolt or chain lock on every room. We also have security on site at all hours. We are happy to announce that we also renovated the pool area this spring and are in the process of installing... More

Daunt's Albatross has been in Montauk forever and is a great deal for a family on a budget who wants a kitchenette, pool, and great ocean location. You cross the streetand you're on the ocean. The place is dated and nothing fancy but it has everything you need for the kids and yourself and the staff is friendly. There are... More

Just got back from our third yearly vacation at Daunt's. We would never stay anywhere else. We are greeted and treated like family. Every effort is made to get us in our rooms as soon as possible - this year we were in by 12! The breakfast every morning is great and such a money-saver for families traveling with kids.... More

If you're looking for a cheap stay in Montauk this motel might be right for you, however a budget room comes at a price. I was in Montauk with my family so split between us I was able to see three different rooms. My girl friend and I stayed in a room with a double and a twin bed. Of... More

Yes the place is outdated but how much time are you staying in the room? The rooms are clean and spacious on the east side 2nd floor. Walked everywhere the only time we drove was to a lobster shack and the lighthouse. Prices are great and no minimum unless its a weekend.

I'm writing this review right now from inside one of Daunt's grimy little albatross haunts. This mattress is less tempur-pedic and more human-size dish-washing sponge in a ziploc. It's around 2 am. The only way to lock your motel door at Daunt's is to twist the greasy knob lock on the inside of the room and then slam it shut... More
