During the winter time I had a lovely stay here with my boyfriend. The place feels like it is in a time warp but in a really refreshing way. The room we stayed in had wood paneled walls, big mirrors, a bright orange bedspread, large bathroom, mini kitchen, and balcony. But, the main feature of the room was the VHS... More

I have been coming here for many years. It is the highlight of my whole summer! I try to get here more than once. You can't beat the location. One block from the beach, you can walk to everything! The pool is always clean and sparkling! The outdoor spaces have been upgraded every year. Love the BBQ 's available for... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Albatross (both locations) several times, and it remains our "go to" location for a trip to Montauk. It's located just a block or two from the beach, and is just off the main plaza circle where all the restaurants are. The rooms vary in terms of how up-to-date the accommodations feel but,... More

Came out to Montauk to check it out when everything was frozen, and really loved the feel of this place. Room was cozy and comfortable, and the staff was super helpful with tips about where to go. Two blocks from the beach in one direction, restaurants and shops in the other. Recommended!

Hello Joe, While we are looking forward to the sun, we agree that the snow and ice have made for some breathtaking views around Montauk. Some of our local photographers have captured some amazing images! We are very grateful you chose the Albatross to lay your head after all your adventuring, and look forward to having you again!

Surprised my wife with a stay here for valentine's day. It isn't as fancy as some places we have stayed in town but the location and service go far and above the incredibly low price we paid for the room will stay here again on our next visit.

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!

Hi Jeff, It means a lot that you took the time to review us. This January was uncharacteristically cold, but the ice and snow made for some incredible landscapes! Thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you again! More

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
