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.

I stayed here a few weeks ago during my visit to Long Island. The staff was extremely friendly. Room was cleaned and well-kept. They provided plenty of channels as well as movie rental. Daunt's Albatross was conveniently located by the Main Street coffee shops and restaurants as well as the entrance to the beach! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Stayed here last week and it was a great experience, Montauk in the off season is different but still nice. First off the staff is extremely helpful and we're always available. The room was great and the location of the Motel is perfect near everything. The pool area looks amazing to bad we weren't able to take advantage of it... More

This is the second year that my group of surf fishermen stayed at Daunt's. The place is perfect, great, clean rooms with small efficiencies, comfortable beds, flat screen TV, good service, nice people at the desk. All good.

As a fisherman, a clean, reasonable priced room is something that's sometimes tough to come by. The albatross exceeded expectations on almost all fronts. Only suggestions would be a slight refresh of the rooms (new shower heads, door knobs, and maybe a better TV) but i'd stay here again in a heartbeat even as is. Staff was professional and friendly,... More

We have been spending our summer vacation at Daunts for the past 10 years and every year it gets better! It is located convienently in the "heart" of Montauk making it a quick stroll to all the resturants and shops on Main Street. The beach is only one block away! The staff is friendly, helpful and courteous. They keep the... More

Every year we plan our October surf fishing vacation at the Albatross. The motel is always clean and well kept and the service is great. Their one big area of improvement continues to be Wi-Fi access. Due to a poor signal you need to sit in the courtyard in order to get a consistent connection. I spoke with the owners... More

Beautiful grounds. Love the barbeque areas and pool area. The rooms need to be updated but are very functionable. Location is great for everything and the hospitalty is great. The price doubled from last year which I don't understand since the rooms have not been updated.

We enjoyed our stay. They recently upgraded the pool, patio and grill areas. All looked really nice. The room was dated and small for a couple but clean. It's functional because there's the grills and tables outside if you are with a family and don't want to eat out every night. We didn't get to use the pool because it... More
